Itel S15 Review: Specifications And Price In Nigeria

iTel S15 is the latest from the production lab of iTel Mobile. This newest addition to iTel S-series was released on August 2019 with some interesting features and sold at a pocket friendly price in Nigeria.

Surprisingly, iTel S15 comes with dewdrop notch which is the first android device from iTel with such a feature. Not only does this phone feature a notch, but it is also the first iTel phone with Google Gallery Go pre-installed. A lovely surprise from Itel.

Let’s look at the full specifications of this device and where you can get one for yourself at a great price.

The Itel S15 flaunts a big dewdrop notch 6.1-inch HD+ IPS LCD display, with a resolution 720 x 1520 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 that offers enough screen to enjoy your favorite movies, latest music videos and that superb gaming experience.

iTel S15 Design

For those iTel fanboys that are familiar with iTel devices, you must have noticed that phones are mostly made with plastic material casing. ITel S15 is no exception to this. The phone comes in a trendy plastic body build and measures 156.7 x 74.7 x 8.9 mm. The dual rear camera sensors are vertically arranged at the right-hand side; very similar to the P33. An LCD flash is located just below the camera. Although, an upgrade to an in-display fingerprint scanner was expected, but what we have here is a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, which cool considering the price range of the S15.

iTel S15 Camera and Battery

The iTel S15 comes with the dual rear camera setup, housing an 8MP main camera another 8MP with an LED flash. The front hosts a 16MP selfie shooter with LED flashlight for good quality selfie shots.

For power, the onboard 3000mAh battery is really below my expectations for such a device on that price range. iTel P32 that was released sometime in 2018 has a better battery capacity than the S15. The battery is a non-removable Li-Po battery with no fast charge technology. Fully charged, it could last for a day on average usage.

My iTel S15 Opinion

In my personal opinion, iTel S15 unlike the S15 Pro is a mid level, low budget android smartphone with lots of exciting features. I will recommend this device for students and low income earners because of it durability and price, for the non tech savvy peeps and no gamers because of the 1Gb RAM, 1.3GHz processor and the graphics.

iTel S15 will also be suitable for mid level internet users and online researchers due to it long lasting battery life. One thing I really love about iTel phones is it badass battery, they really do last for ages. My iTel P33 can testify to that.

Selfie lovers and Photo freaks will also have a nice time with this phone.
