Android phones has continued to make waves in the market, despite the presence of the apple smart phones. With many models and versions out there, buyers often times gets confused on what to purchase and why to purchase it.This is in view, we reviewed one of itel’s latest release , “itel A15”.
The phone is an Andriod 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition) version, with a 5″ screen display and packed with a 1.3GHz quad core processor.
Camera/Battery Capacity/Internal memory
It also comes with a 1 GB of RAM, an internal memory of 8 GB. It has a back/ rear camera of 5 MP and an 2 MP front camera with a 2050 mah Li-Po battery capacity to push all this.
iTel A15 Specification Highlight (Key Specs)
- Network: 2G – Yes, 3G – Yes , 4G – N/a
- Operating System: Android 8.1, Oreo (Go Edition)
- Processor / GPU: 1.3 GHz Quad Core Cortex A53 / Mali
- Display / Resolution: 5.0 Inches / 640 x 480 pixel
- RAM: 512 MB
- Internal / External Memory: 8 GB / Expandable by up to 32 GB
- Camera: Back / Rear (5 MP), Front (2 MP)
- Battery Capacity: 2050 mAh Li-Ion
The 2050 mAh Li-Ion battery serves very well, it charges pretty fast compared to its rate of discharge. In figure perspective, it takes approximately 45 mins to get fully charged compared to most other androids.
The 512 MB ram embedded on the phone is indeed a challenge to its performance. Compared to 8.1 andriod version, the itel A15 is slow
Though the phone comes with an 8 gigs internal memory, with lots of space already consumed, this leaves the user with about 3-4 gigs free for use. Well, this little space would have been great assuming the phone allows one to install applications on its external memory slot. But, unfortunately, you have to delete some files/apps first before you can install a new one with or without an external memory card
Compatibility with Whatsapp:
Although the phone can run whatsapp when installed, the unfortunate thing is that whatsapp automatically uninstalls whenever you turn off the phone.
By implication, be prepared to make a new whatsapp installation whenever the phone turns off.
We hope to update this post as we observe new features about the phone.
