As we all know there are so many mobile brands which are available in India these days and increasing day by day. Recently there is a new startup company up with their featured phones and now entering into smartphones. They have launched itel Selfie Pro it1511 within the affordable price segment in India.
The phone is available for Rs 6,999 and is powered by 1 GHz quad-core processor, 1 GB RAM (which seems quite small for this price) compare to other devices, 8GB internal memory and due to which they are going to face a large competition from other Chinese phones which are already available in the market, like Coolpad Note 3 Lite, Meizu M2 Etc.
But the main selling point for this will be an offline market. As all the Chinese brands are available in the online market and rest of the brands which are available in the offline market are not among affordability. So, if a person is having a tight budget and only prefer the offline market to buy stuff, this can be the first choice to them.
While using the device, we found that after even having 1 GB ram it was working smooth in normal usage.
So, let’s see what works for it.
The smartphone looks and feels decent. While holding the device it feels comfortable because of its leather back feel, but it is a good quality plastic. It also offers physical camera button that allows you to quickly launch the camera app and even capture the images using it. Overall The device is bit thick but is having very light weight.
At the back side, you will get a 8 MP camera beside it Dual LED Flash. The Camera capture decent images but the application is sometimes laggy and slow, but you can install the third party for that.
Below that there is a primary speaker, which offers decent sound quality and you won’t be complaining anything about it.
At Front Side, you will get a 2MP selfie Camera with a Front facing flash which works great in low light while taking images. You can also take great front facing video because of this front facing flash. It works really fine with this phone.
At down portion of the phone, you will get a Primary Mic and nothing else just standard metal edges all over.
At left side houses Volume rockers which have no patter feel on it, but give proper tactile feel when you press them.
At Left side houses camera shutter button which has patterned feel on it so that you won’t confuse between power lock key and shutter button. Beside camera shutter button you will get a power lock key which works well on a regular basis.
On the top portion of the phone houses a 3.5mm audio jack and beside it a normal Micro SUB port which won’t support Quick Charge.
It comes up with handy 5-inch HD IPS display produce decent colors, while you are using it for watching movies and playing games. The viewing angles are good and won’t fade out when you see it from an odd angle.
Itel it1511 comes with 1GHz quad-core processor which gives you modest performance while working with different ongoing apps in the background. It can also handle high-end games like Asphalt 8: Airborne and GT Racing 2 very well.
The phones run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and come built in 4G unable which means your jio sim will work in it. It also comes up with dual-SIM/dual-standby capability which means both the sims will work at same time.
The smartphone is packed up with 2,500mAh battery and can easily run for a day with regular use, which includes watching a video series + calls + message + browsing and many other ordinary things which an average consumer do in there daily life.
Positives of itel Selfie Pro
- The best part for this phone is availability, and you can buy this phone anywhere in the offline market. You can feel the device and then purchase the device. As the device is under budget oriented segment with decent specs, for the offline market it is a great deal.
- The battery life of the device is quite good because after playing the games and watching movie still some juice is left after 6 hours.
- The back 8 MP camera is decent enough to capture above average images. The colors are good, and even the low light is decent. Coming to the Front cam, I just love it, there is some noise while taking images because of it 2 MP front cam still the video recording from front cam using the front facing flash is impressive. I have compared it with other devices, but the light, and other color are a lots better in front camera from itel. The only suggestion to them for the future device is to increase the pixel size in front camera as well with same color quality.
Some Cons which is not good
- While using the device in day to day use, i found some time the touch response is not good. You need press little bit to make it work. I don’t know whether this problem is with my unit only or with other devices also. Compare to other competitors they deliver much better touch response.
- While you are using too many application as multi-tasking, it shows performance lag due to only 1 GB ram. But still while playing games, it won’t affect any thing, no lag and no frame drops are there, which is a positive point towards this device.
- The camera is a little bit laggy, but the images which we capture using this device is above average. Nice details and colors are there.
