Let us now take some time to look at these smartphones. We will consider the basic features, specs and other things to know about the smartphones.

Design & Display

You wouldn’t fault iTel for going with a plastic body for both smartphones. Just like the iTel P32, the iTel P33 and P33 plus feature fingerprint sensors at the rear and a dual camera set-up. One of the most noticeable differences between the P32 and P33 and P33 Plus is the size. ITel P33 dons an impressive 5.5-inch IPS display while the Plus boasts a bigger and even more admirable 6.0-inch IPS display. Both devices maintain the new 18:9 aspect and features a 2.5D curved flash on top for screen protection.

Single front-facing cameras occupy the front bezels at the top. IT also features a nice and sensate face ID for face unlock. While the face unlock is not as sensitive when compared with the likes of Samsung and Infinix latest smartphones. The devices are available in various colours including Blue, Black and Gold. Both devices also have dual SIM card slots and a dedicated MicroSD card slot for external storage.

Performance

Performance was on thing the P32 needed to improve on. While the new P33 and P33 Plus are not there yet, they mark a notable improvement on the P32. When it comes to hardware and software, both the itel P33 and P33 Plus are identical. They are both equipped with MediaTek MT6580 Chipset with a Quad-Core processor clocked at 1.4GHz alongside a Mali 400 MP2 GPU. Both devices feature a 1GB of RAM that runs on the Android 8.1 Oreo Go Edition. They also boast 16 GB Internal memory and can be increased up to 32GB with the dedicated MicroSD card slot.

Camera

The camera is one of the most important features of modern smartphones. Compared to other top-notch smartphones though, you wouldn’t expect so much from the camera quality given the prices they go for.

However, these smartphones still go beyond expectation with the P33 boasting an impressive 8 Megapixel main camera and a secondary camera of 2 MP for selfie while the P33 bags an 8 MP main camera and another 5 MP front shooter for selfie. Both are equipped with an LED flash and record 1080p videos at 30fps.

Battery

Battery capacity is one of the core strengths of iTel and these twin phones continue that trend. The Itel P33 packs a 4,000mAh while P33 Plus takes it up a bigger 5,000mAh. If you are a fan of fast charging, then you might be a little disappointed, as the twin devices do not have this feature. Although one can take consolation from its relatively strong battery. The batteries, regardless of fast charging features, charge impressively fast and does not drain easily.

Connectivity

This is another core part iTel has been working on over the years. Impressively, the latest iTel P33 and P33 Plus boast 3G, 2G, WiFi, WiFi hotspot, GPS, Bluetooth, a 3.5mm jack and a microUSB port with support for USB. However, there is also no 4G LTE connectivity for both smartphones.
