Itel have so far released a ton of devices, a vast majority of these devices are usually DOA (Dead on Arrival) and tend to not impress the masses. One of such devices is was the itel it1450 which came as an Edge only device when most smartphones were scraping Edge only devices. Another of such device is the new comer itel it1503.

Let’s talk about the company Itel Mobile for a bit.
Itel mobile maybe a sub-company of Tecno mobile, Nigeria’s largest mobile heartthrob, but they tend to get it all wrong in their fleet of smartphone releases. Tecno may not be the best of smartphone producers, but they have so far tactfully stolen the hearts of a vast majority of Nigeria’s mobile users. Itel mobile on the other hand have lost (any) grip they have on technology craving folks in Africa’s biggest market.

Well, the sub-Tecno’s latest (one of…) offerings dubbed itel it1503 is a far shot from what we were expecting. The device though a Quad-core CPU device, running on a mediatek processor, still features a medieval 512MB RAM which doubtfully will hold-up the device for much. So you should expect lagging and over-heating.

But to make up for the feeble mistake, itel were kind enough to let you have 8GB of ROM to store away your worries. You also get to have a taste of Kitkat 4.4 Android OS, but don’t ever dream of upgrading though as it’s never happening.

I don’t know, but it seems a few people have taken a liking to the mediocre products itel is offering, if you are one of them, you are in luck! The itel it1503 is currently hot selling online with stocks getting depleted before you say what?! You can checkout and buy the it1503 and/or the whole lot of itel phones on Konga [BUY NOW]
