Full List Of iTel Smartphones & Tablets (itel Prime, itel Grand, it 1404, Others)

Published by:

iTel mobile is no doubt a fan favorite in Africa, though I used to advise against patronizing the OEM of most of their devices, users seem to “not give a f**k what I think, and go ahead and buy their products (a few do come back to lay complaints about the device, which most times, I tend to ignore :) ).

In any case, since my dear readers love the itel brand, I would do my best to reduce the scatting articles on their products (but I plead with them to also improve the standards and specs of their devices, after, if the product is good, I won’t write bad about it – see my article on itel it1701 inote prime)

iTel mobile smartphones, prices and where to buy

There are quite a number of itel devices floating around, the popular ones being the itel beyond 3G and the itel grand. The new tablet on the block itel prime is also doing good for itself, and has sold out on Jumia Nigeria (still available to Kenyans and Ghanians) but still available on Konga if you would want to own one.

Here’s the current itel smartphones you snag if you are an itel lover.
Itel IT 1501 (itel inote Grand): The itel inote grand is the first itel Grand device. Features a superb IPS HD 5.0 inches screen, runs on Google’s Kitkat 4.4 OS. A rather small RAM of 512MB but a manageable ROM of 4gig. The device is a dual sim smartphone and it supports multi touch as well. It features an 8mp shooter as it’s primary camera (back camera) with LED flash light and auto focus. The front is adorned with 3mp front camera for your Skype and video calls and selfies. Priced anywhere from 15,000 – 20,000 Naira, the device is a hot seller on Konga with most sellers already out of stock. Want to own it? [BUY NOW]

Itel IT 1502 (itel inote Grand II): The grand tablet of itel with model 1502 is still hotly selling in Nigeria and Africa. With 1GB of RAM, 8GB of ROM and a quad-core CPU, itel did put in their all to see the tablet wasn’t a kill joy. Featuring Android 4.4 KitKat OS, and 3G high-speed internet, if you are looking for a somewhat cool Chinese tab to see you thru your daily ramblings, the 7.0″ itel Grand 2 is just right for you then. Priced anywhere from 18,000 – 25,000 Naira if you get to see it, as the device is almost depleted as well. Want to own it? [BUY NOW]

Itel 1452 Smartphone: itel it1452 is a low-budget, low specs device from itel. The device features a single core CPU, Android 4.4, 512MB RAM, 4GB ROM amongst others. If it interests you, you could get it for around 13,000 – 16,000 Naira. Want to own it? [BUY NOW]

Itel 1453 Smartphone: Same specs with the it 1452, with the addition of 3G high speed internet. [BUY NOW]

Itel 1403 Smartphone: Probably the bunch, with a RAM of 256MB and a ROM of 2GB, this 4.0′ smartphone isn’t the best you would find, but at it’s price range of 7,500 – 12,000. I guess you could pick one up and gift it to your 5 year-old child or something. [BUY NOW]

itel it1701 inote prime: Probably the most worked on device from itel stables, this 7.0″ tablet is my favorite from the Chinese OEM. Boasts a Quad-core CPU, android 4.4 Kitkat OS, 3G fast internet, Bluetooth 4.0, crazy 8.0MP rear camera and a 5.0MP camera in front, all for a miserly amount (around 17,000 – 20,000Naira). The device is so good it’s sold out on Jumia!, However, if you still want to own the tab, 3rd party sellers are retailing. [BUY NOW]

Published by:

Gionee Elife E8 like the power beast – Marathon M5 was officially released at the product launch even in Beijing.

The Elife E8 isn’t your average flagship smartphone though, with a massive 24MP shooter as it’s main camera, which boasts to be the highest pixel count now in a major smartphone, that is, if you don’t count the Nokia Lumia 1020 of course, and the almost ancient ‘made for photography’ Nokia PureView 808.

Gionee Elife E8 boasts a phablet sized 6-inch QHD display, with a massive pixel per inch density of about 490ppi. Made with Samsung’s AMOLED panel, you are sure to get the quality entertainment you deserve with deep blacks and vivid colors.

Gionee Elife E8 isn’t just a beast because of it’s phablet sized looks, the device has some crazy tech running inside. The internals include a Mediatek Helio X10 chip-set which has an octa-core processor clocked at up 2GHz on each core, and a PowerVR 6200 GPU.

There’s a massive 3GB of RAM and an equally massive 64GB internal storage memory (ROM) as well.

While the Marathon M5 is a battery power monster, the Elife E8 is a photographic monster. Made for photographers, Gionee Elife E8 can do quite a lot with the soft-wares on board, and it’s 24MP primary camera.

Using some software tricks, the E8 can manipulate and produce images up to a jaw-dropping 120MP resolution!!!

Starting the camera is a breeze, as the apps takes just 0.8s to launch. On-board is phase detection auto-focus which Gionee claims focuses in 0.08s to 0.2s. The sensor sits behind a six-element lens with sapphire glass front element.

There’s optical image stabilization which is able to correct for shakes up to 1.5-degrees in angle. The smartphone will also offer dual Tone LED flash, loss-less zoom, and 4K video recording.

Gionee Elife E8 would be available from July 15, with price set at CNY 3,999 ($645).

Not a bad price for a smartphone monstrosity such as the Elife E8 is it? Do let us know what you feel about the latest Gionee flagship in the comments below.

Gionee M5, The Power Beast With 6020mAh Battery Official

Published by:

Gionee officially launched two devices yesterday and of-course they are the most talked about Gionee duo this year, the Elife E8 and of-course, the huge powered beast Gionee Marathon M5.

The marathon M5 which is one of the hotly anticipated mid-range devices has its dual-batteries which sum up to 6,020mAh to thank. The device which follows the Marathon M3 as the next Marathon racer, boasts power-battery management enhancements, and features most notably is the extreme mode, which boasts almost three full days (62 hours) of standby time from just 5%!. If this isn’t superb, I don’t see what would ever be.

Gionee M5 is specially crafted for power management and productivity, so there’s the quick-charge (in the charging-pair) function on board the device, which would see the m5 charge up in no time, and as well, there’s the main jaw-dropping function courtesy the charging chip, called ‘pairing’, this function allows the device to double up as a power bank for charging two devices simultaneously.

The device was out-rightly classified as a battery phone, so the specs however it is is justifiable. Aside it’s main battery features and enhancements, Gionee M5 marathon has a few good details up it’s sleeve.

With a 5.5″ phablet sized display, the new device features 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage ROM. There’s super fast 4G LTE connectivity, so you are not stuck on crawling network. You get a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.3GHz on each core to process all the device’s needs. Not for forgetting a super crisp 13MP camera as it’s main shooter.

If you are wondering, Gionee Marathon M5 would run Google’s Android 5.0 straight out of the box, so you needn’t worry about when it would be getting the fresh taste of Lollipop.

With a knack for slimness, Gionee made sure that though the M5 housed dual batteries, it still retained a fair thickness measurement of just 8.5mm

June 25th would see the dual-SIM Gionee Marathon M5 will arrive in black, white and gold color options on, and with a price tag of $370.

Targetted at people who would love to use their smartphones for longer, the Gionee Marathon M5 would be just right for countries with epileptic power supply like Nigeria.
