iTel P51 – The Birth of iTel’s Maxpower Series

iTel P51 – Budget smartphone? Check in!

iTel P51 tackled one issue that gives smartphone users huge concerns, and that’s power. The primary aim of kickstarting the Maxpower series is as a result of this same concern.

You’ll agree with me on this because the use of power banks in the last few years has elevated tremendously. In a bid not to digress further, I’ll like us to drift back to the subject of this article – iTel P51.

iTel P51, also known as P51 Maxpower not only presents power but also tables down remarkable features at a dog cheap price tag. Here, what are talking about? We’re talking about abundant screen display, finesse resolution, good enough storage and a host of others at a sound budget price.

Smartphone enthusiasts, how about we check out the key specifications of this edifice from iTel Mobile?

Furthermore, let’s consider the pros and cons of this tech piece.


  • Abundant and crisp screen display
  • Slim and smartly furnished matte design
  • Brilliant operating system
  • Powerful battery capacity


  • Average multitasking performance


The first thingP51 marvels us with is the metallic body material it’s structured in. What makes us awe is that most low-end / budget smartphones OEMs do go for the plastic material, even higher-end smartphones like the Tecno Camon CM featured the plastic material.

Moreso, the smoothly polished rear gets apportioned into two fractions – the first fraction containing the primary camera and the dual-LED flash, and the second fraction which functions as a battery cover. A thin line runs through the sides of the battery cover fraction, thereby accentuating the rear’s beauty.

Streamer Gold, Crystal Gray, Mocha Gold and Elegant Blue colors are the four color variables of smartphone.

Let me guess, you’re thinking slim and portable? iTel P51’s 152g conjoining with the 8.07 mm thickness handles that aspect.

It’s a matter of stating the obvious that phones display is one of the biggest displays to appear on a low-end smartphone. Amazingly, it’s not only a large 5.5-inch display, it also leaves no slouch with its HD resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels.


Sincerely, it’ll be too demanding to ask for a better camera sensor than the 8MP primary camera on the phone, bearing in mind that it’s a budget smartphone.

Nonetheless, the front camera should have been beefed up with a sensor better than the 2MP sensor at its fore. All the same, a LED flash support helps to reduce the imperfection.


Oh well, the chipset mostly assigned to low-end smartphones – MediaTek MT6580 got integrated into the smartphone. Concatenated with the chipset at the helm of affairs is the Quad-core ARM Cortex CPU that attains 1.3GHz peak speed.

Multitasking and running of apps are overseen by a 1GB RAM. Say no more to low storage as the 16GB ROM can upsurge to 32GB with the utilization of an external memory.

Familiar with the multi-windows feature on some select Android smartphones? Well, this feature has Android 7.0 Nougat OS written all over it, and just so you know, it’s all iTel P51’s prerogative software.


iTel Mobile deserves accolades because of the mouth-watering battery incorporated in the device. Even more, iTel Mobile claims the smartphone gives three days usage after just one charge! Isn’t that sumptuous for a Li-Poly 5,000mAh battery? I’m sure I have your concurrence.


iTel P51 sells within the price range of NGN 28,000 to NGN 33,000. The smartphone can be bought from several online and offline retail stores close to you.
