DESIGN AND DISPLAY
Given the budget nature of iTel it 1516 Plus, a picturesque appearance such as the one it bestows is well received. Finished smoothly at the rear except for the speaker grille which takes up the left bottom portion, iTel it 1516 Plus has a protruding back camera and dual-LED flash. Also featuring at the rear is the iTel logo and the model of the smartphone.
Where else to fix the bar buttons on the smartphone other than the right side. These bar buttons are the power button and the volume buttons which lay vertically to each other.
Android soft keys were placed skillfully and beautifully at the thick bottom bezel of this smartphone. Even the top bezel which appears thick got the pulchritude of a front camera and LED flash alongside the earpiece.
Just in case worries about slimness is dawning on you, iTel mobile got that covered with the 9.95 mm thickness iTel it1516 Plus got crafted in. Interesting color options of the iTel it 1516 Plus are Silver, Champagne, and Grey.
Adding to that, the platform available for viewing movies, reading books and other activities on the smartphone is a 5.0-inch IPS display. The screen’s sharpness isn’t in the highest strata as it pegs 480 x 854 pixels.
The quality of images and videos on the smartphone is questionable as the smartphone’s rear camera uses a 5MP sensor for such functions. To reduce the average nature of images that’ll be produced, a dual-LED flash and autofocus features are in sight. Selfies’ fans will find it less amazing using the 2MP front camera of this smartphone. Hopes are not lost though as a LED flash is present to illuminate the scenery.
HARDWARE, SOFTWARE & MEMORY
Generating power behind the scene is the 1.2GHz CPU that has four cores to its name. Running of apps ‘fluidly’ is overseen by the 1GB RAM. The running of apps only gets to be fluid if lots of apps aren’t loaded on the smartphone.
Files such as music, videos, and images can amass a total of 8GB. With the adoption of a microSD card, this storage can aggrandize to 32GB flat.
Acting in the software department is the Android 5.1 Lollipop OS.
