iTel A44 Air – Full Price And Specifications 1

Itel Mobile just launched the iTel A44 Air and it has a set of impressive specifications so let’s take a closer look at this device

The iTel a44 Air is the latest addition to the A Series by iTel Mobile. The device comes with basically what everyone expects to see on a budget phone , a decent price and budget friendly specifications.

The device also comes with 1GB RAM, A quad Core Spreadtrum SC9832E processor clocked at 1.4Ghz and a dual camera setup. I’m a bit disappointed at the choice of processor for this device. A low-end Mediatek processor would have still done the trick

The main selling point of the iTel A44 Air is the fact that it is a budget phone is the battery life, it comes with a 2400mAh battery which is not too bad.

Nevertheless , lets take a look at the quick specs of this device:

Design and Display

The iTel A44 Air is the latest addition to iTel’s A series of Android Smartphones. The phone comes with 5.4-inch Display with a resolution of 480 pixels by 960 pixels.

The Itel A44 Air has a very classy design and also has a chequered design  that can be seen clearly at the back of the smartphone to ensure users get a good grip while holding the device. The placement of the volume keys are also very good as it allows users easily make use of it easily.

At the back of the phone you can see a very impressive horizontal dual camera setup. The cameras are supported by a high quality LED Flash to improve shots at low light conditions.

The iTel A44 Air is available in different colour options -Blusher Gold, Elegant Blue, and Slate Grey.

Considering the phone is a budget phone, the specs aren’t all that mind blowing but it’s just something I’d say is good. The phone weighs about 140g, which i feel is not too heavy but users can actually enjoy using the device nevertheless.

Camera and Connectivity

Apart from the whole budget friendly smartphone specs and other design aesthetics you can find on the iTel A44 Air, the A44 Air Android Smartphone like most of the devices from Itel still comes comes with a rear camera that isn’t all that great but it makes the most of it.

The A44 Air comes with a dual camera setup at the back, which includes a 5 megapixels camera  + a secondary 0.08 megapixel camera for depth sensor capturing.

The back camera is also supported by an LED flash,  has HDR support, panorama.AI beauty mode While the front shooter comes with a 2megapixels camera .

However, the both cameras support Beauty mode, Scene detection, HDR, Night shots, and many more.

The iTel A44 air has 4G LTE support, while other connectivity options include includes WiFi, WiFi hotspot, WiFi direct, Bluetooth v4.2, the normal 3.5mm audio jack, USB support.

 

Performance and Battery

The device is powered by a Quad Core Spreadtrum SC9832E processor clocked at 1.4Ghz .However, there’s no official word yet on if there are bloatware apps on the device that can be uninstalled with the single touch of a button.

The main selling point of the A44 Air  is still the fact that it is a budget smartphone. Although there are phones that can be called a budget smartphone with better features like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 with pretty impressive specifications but the iTel A44 isn’t that bad

According to iTel, The device will have 1GB RAM and 8GB of storag , that allows you to store as many of your files as you want like your docs, apps, games, music, movies / videos, and even your best photos and pictures.

But if you feel the space is small, which it is actually because apps would take 50% of the space you can expand it up to 32GB via a dedicated micro SD card slot. Now that’s pretty managable, you can check This 32gb Memory card though if you are looking for the maximum storage option.

I’m a bit disappointed that it will run on Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition) out of the box considering this is 2019 and most of us haven’t even tested out Android 9.0 Pie but I think it’s because Google is still working on the Android Go version for Android 9.0 Pie  . The device has a smoother and smarter operation, quicker fingerprint sensor usage, and a faster system navigation gesture

Like I mentioned before, the A44 air is powered by a 2400mAh battery , and it is enough to last 14 hours on a single full cycle charge.

The device also can also charge fast so all you have to do is plug in your device and wait for a few hours to get it fully charged for the next use.
