iTel just released the P32 a couple of weeks back and sent me a review unit  and I wrote a first impressions post about it  –https://www.naijatechguy.com/2018/07/check-out-itel-p32-smartphone.html.

Like most first impression posts I didn’t make an in depth review of the device because I needed to spend more time with the phone so I can put up a full proper review.

I also made a full review video of it , Please make sure you hit the subscribe button

O.S , DESIGN AND DISPLAY

The iTel P32 runs on  Android Go 8.1 Oreo. iTel trims down on the bezels a bit and gives the device a metallic finish.  The UI is awesome and I never experienced any lagging on the device thanks to the Android  Go OS.

The colors look beautiful and not over saturated, the white balance is great as well considering the device has a 5.5′ display . Like all Android Go smartphones you still have the optimized lightweight Google apps – Maps Go , Gmail Go, YouTube Go , Google Go and my personal favorite Assistant Go.

One more thing that is striking about the display is the fact that iTel decided to opt for an awesome 18:9 aspect ratio display.

 I must say it’s pretty impressive considering the fact this is a budget smartphone.

Instead of Google play music you have Boomplay instead just like the A32F. Also you can also turn on Night Mode in case your eye hurts or just to prevent eye strain.

There’s also a feature in the gallery that let’s you lock your pictures and videos. There’s also an app that locks your apps as well.

PERFOMANCE

The major thing I’ll focus on here is the battery life. The P32 is powered by a 4000mAh non removable battery. The battery lasts for 20 hours on constant use and the only thing I don’t really like is the time it takes to go from 0-100% (about 4 hours). I think iTel should take a cue from Infinix on this part and implement the fast charge feature.Apart from that performance is pretty solid.

I watched a 2 hour movie with maximum brightness and only 15% went off the initial battery percentage. The device doesn’t over heat so it handles heat very well. However, I must point this out – if you buy the device and it doesn’t turn on when you haven’t charged it yet just plug it in and let it charge it should power up so there’s no need to get scared or worked up about it.

Just like the iTel A32F , The P32 runs on a MediaTek quadcore chipset clocked at 1.3GHz.  It also comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage. Although when it comes to the storage space you have just 5GB of space available so it’s recommended you get a memory card for this device.

CAMERA

One of the selling points of the iTel P32 is the dual rear camera that is accompanied by a dual LED flash.

The P32 sports a dual 5MP/5MP rear camera alongside a 5MP front camera . The P32 does a really good job of using the most of it’s camera’s resources.

As you can see from the screenshots above the picture quality of the front and rear camera is 2560×1920 , video quality is 1920×1088 which is equivalent to a full HD footage. Here are a couple of shots I took on the iTel P32 –

I know the last picture looks a bit creepy but the feature actually comes with the camera inbuilt so there’s no need for a third party software -It’s one out of hundreds of filters available in the camera.

NETWORK ,BATTERY AND CONNECTIVITY


The Budget Phone Killer : The iTel P32 - Full Review, Unboxing And Price In Nigeria 24

The phone has a dual SIM slot – Two Micro-SiMs. There’s support for WCDMA,HSPDA and GSM. 
Coming to the battery , It’s  a massive 4000 mah battery and can last up to 3 days on normal use. It takes about 4hrs to get full from 0%. The good part is that the OS it runs on is optimized for both data saving and battery saving so the battery may actually last more than those of other devices with the same capacity running on older android versions.

SECURITY

The fingerprint scanner does a really good job. It has a finger print scanner that unlocks within 0.1 seconds and it’s accuracy is top notch. You can add up to five finger prints, so if you wish to add all of your fingers you can do that easily. The fingerprint is combined with the standard security as a secondary layer of security .(PIN, Password, Pattern).

PRICE

For a budget phone , this device costs N26,500.

Hong Kong-based smartphone maker and sub-Transsion company, Infinix, has launched one of its most anticipated device of 2020 in Indonesia, called the Infinix Zero 8.

We brought you new the latest Infinix Zero smartphone was out of the works and ready to make a public appearance and now the device has been announced officially in Indonesia.

Infinix Zero 8 officially launched

The smartphone brand which has so far captured the heart of Nigerians and African countries at large with budget smartphone offering including the Smart 4 Plus and recently released Hot 9 series hopes to take a different route with its latest offering.

A lot has already been made with the increasing acceptance of the Xiaomi and Oppo competition in the Nigerian market and with the Zero 8 device, Infinix hopes to target the mid-range smartphone segment whilst keeping the competition flame blazing.

Although the smartphone has only been launched in Indonesia for now, it’s only a matter of time before we get a proper launch date for the Nigerian smartphone space.

The Infinix Zero 8 smartphone comes with a tone of high-end features unlike any infinix product you know and packs a powerful processor at an affordable price. So let us have a look at everything the device brings to the table as well as the expected price.

Infinix has so far been making great strides with better display panels and lightening on their devices lately as illustrated with the Hot 9 series and the Infinix Zero 8 might just have taken things a notch a bit.

Infinix Zero 8 Display and OS

The newly launched Infinix Zero 8 features a 6.85-inch FHD+ display panel with a refresh rate of 90HZ and180Hz touch sampling rate which is just about a whole selling point on its own. The display flaunts the bezel-less design with a dual-punch-hole cutout for selfie cameras.

The smartphone runs on Android 10 out of the box based on Infinix XOS 7 custom skin.

Infinix Zero 8 Processor

Under the hood, the Transsion sub-brand went with the recently announced MediaTek Helio G90T processor which is a pretty mid-range SoC but highly characterized with providing seamless gaming experience as previously seen in devices including the Redmi Note 8 Pro and Realme 6.

Talk about waking up to reality then…

Infinix Zero 8 Storage

The Infinix Zero 8 also packs an 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage capacity single variant which can be expandable using a microSD card.

In terms of camera, Infinix have always messed things up a bit but the sensor on this latest offering points to a huge kick up the backside and a huge awakening to reality from them.

The Infinix Zero 8 features a quad-camera setup on the rear which comprises a 64-megapixel Sony IMX696 sensor, 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens along with macro sensors and depth sensor.

It might look beautiful average but let’s not forget Xiaomi advertise the IMX696 sensor on the Redmi 8 to brings outputs just as with the Pixel phones. The story however is different all together.

However, it will be pretty awesome to see what Infinix has come up with on their own and how they go about processing images on this device.

On the front, there’s a dual-camera setup with a 48-megapixel sensor and an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens all enclosed in the dual punch-hole cutout.

The battery capacity on the Infinix Zero 8 smartphone is also very much welcome. A 4500mAh battery capacity on top of a Type-C port for refilling the juice means we get support for 33W fast charging on this piece of hardware.

Nokia C3, Nokia 150, and Nokia 125 launched in India: Full Specifications and Features 28

Nokia phone family in India have been given a boost as HMD Global have announced the launched of the Nokia C3 on Tuesday after a long wait, alongside their other latest members, including the Nokia 125, and Nokia 150.

The Finnish company has so far found solace and a slight return to success in the budget and entry-level smartphone segment with offer of functional Android One devices.

Nokia budget and entry-level smartphone launch

It has launched the entry-level Nokia C3 smartphone and Nokia 125, Nokia 150 feature phones in India. Nokia C3 was launched sometime back in China with low-end specifications but stock Android software while the two feature phones are just additions to the strong portfolio HMD Global enjoys in India.

Here, we take a look at everything new with the trio of newly launched Nokia smartphones.

Nokia C3 Specifications, Features and Price

Arguably the peak of the entire bunch, the Nokia C3 brings a 5.99-inch HD+ LCD display without a notch or a punch-hole, very much akin with its predecessor, the Nokia C2. There is an octa-crore Unisoc SC9863A processor running on Android 10 and is paired with up to 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, with the ability to be expanded via a microSD card of up to 128GB.

For optics, the Nokia C3 features here an 8-megapixel camera at the back of the Nokia C3 while the shooter on the front is a 5-megapixel sensor.

However, the main downgrade here is a 3040mAh battery that can be removed after you take the back panel off. Not least for the moderate battery capacity but I couldn’t find a reason to make it removable.

Whoever does that in 2020?!

The Nokia C3 India price is set at Rs 7,499 for the base variant that comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage and Rs 8,999 for the one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It comes in Nordic Blue and Sand colours.

The Nokia C3 is scheduled to go on sale starting September 17 but the pre-orders will begin on September 10 on Nokia official online store.

Moreover, you also get the 1-year replacement guarantee on the Nokia C3 and 2-years of software and security updates much like select smartphones HMD Global has launched preciously.

Nokia 125 Specifications, Features and Price

Next on the line is the Nokia 125 feature phone. I mean, it’s only in 2020 that a feature could garner much attention right?

Nokia 125 price in Nigeria

As a feature phone, the Nokia 125 provides you with the basics. A 2.4-inch colour display with a T9 keyboard. It has the iconic Snake game and offers FM radio. It can store up to 2,000 contacts and 500 SMS on its storage but there is no support for microSD card on it. It is a dumbed-down smartphone that you can use for calling, texting, and listening to FM radio.

Anything other than this lot, you’re definitely on your own!!

So, if you are looking for a phone that has the Nokia brand slapped on it (not the copyrighted market types) and provides you with the basics, Nokia 125 could be one of the options. It costs Rs 1,999 and comes in Charcoal Black and Powder White colours. It is now available to purchase from Nokia online store and mobile retailers across the globe.

Nokia 150 Specifications, Features and Price

Last on the bill but definitely not the last of this lot we get to see from Nokia. The Nokia 150 feature phone is everything double what you get on the Nokia 125 though a slight resemblance here-and-there.

Nokia 150 price in Nigeria

Nokia 150 has a 2.4-inch colour display with a T9 keyboard but a larger footprint than that of the Nokia 125. It supports the FM radio function without the headphones, unlike the Nokia 125. This one also has the Snake game and a battery which Nokia says will last you for weeks*.

An upgrade over the Nokia 125 definitely means a slight shake of the wallet again. The Nokia 150 offers things such as FM radio and an MP3 player. It comes in Red, Cyan, and Black colours for a price of Rs 2,299. The sale for the Nokia 150 is now live across retailers in India.
