Transsion Holding’s own smartphone brand; itel Mobiles earlier this month officially unveiled the itel P32 in Uganda following its official launch in Dubai last month. Priced between the range of UGX330,000 to UGX350,000, the flagship smartphone is the successor to the itel P31. The P32 has been highly improved compared to its predecessor. A few key specs we shall look at are the massive 4000mAh non-removable battery, dual rear camera at 5MP + 5MP camera sensors, 18:9 screen ratio, and so forth.
Coupled with Google’s Android Go Edition mobile operating system which specifically tailors to facilitate a smooth and fast experience in for the itel P32 – considering that it has a 1GB of RAM.
PC Tech Magazine received an ice blue unit of the itel P32 for review – ending up with a 3.8 star rating from our team. We rated it in entry-level smartphones – and not smartphones in general.
In our editor’s pick today, we look at some of the key specs that brought out the flagship smartphone.
The itel P32 is well backed on a 4,000mAh non-removable battery. During the unveiling, the company claimed the battery could last for 3 days on a single charge, and yes it did during our quick review we conducted but only for minimal or average users. However, we did find out the battery gets stressed out for 3 day usage on a single charge which makes it weak. During other days, the battery only could last for a maximum of a day and a half on a single charge. We recommend you charge at least once a day. In addition, having coupled Android Go Edition mobile, the OS facilitated a smooth and fast experience of the phone.
Dual Rear Camera
The itel P32 is the first of its kind in the itel mobiles to come featured with dual cameras. Each coming with a sensor of 5MP + 5MP with a supportive dual LED-flash, they did produce quite some good photos. From the output images, they come with a resolution of 2560 x 1920 pixels for a 4:3 aspect ratio (set as default). However, you can still set/change to 18:9, and 16:9 for if the handset holder wanted.
Even though some appeared less detailed, over saturated, over exposed, the photos were quite good as we mentioned before. For first time smartphone users, this wouldn’t be a mind at all.
18:9 Screen Ratio
In terms of display and design, while we are used to the 16:9, the itel P31 comes with a screen aspect ratio of 18:9 compared to its predecessor that wasn’t bezel-less. The company pulled up and down the bezels to create more space for content view, but seems the bezels are still kinda of big especially at the bottom. The 5.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen is still impressive for a budget smartphone coupling a screen resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels with 282 pixels per inch density, this should bring out the details on the screen.
