In order to put smartphones in the hands of every Nigerian, itel Mobile has launched its A32F smartphone, which comes relatively cheap, without any form of compromise with the cost.

For a budget-friendly smartphone, the new itel A32F is nothing short of exceptional. It offers great specifications with a good performance to back it up, giving a good value for money even when compared with other flagships with high-end specs, sold at a high-rate price tag, the phone manufacturer said in a statement.
Giving details of its design and display the phone manufacturer said as with many of itel’s recent smartphones, the itel A32F bears a decent design yet crafted in a stylish matte unibody.

“The fingerprint sensor is at the back rather than at the front, a design choice I prefer over a front-mounted sensor, and it’s accompanied at the rear by a 5-megapixel rear camera and around the front. The smartphone flaunts a 5-inch FWVGA big Screen display with 8.2mm body size. The A32F’s display has decent viewing angles and reproduces natural and vivid colors;

The itel A32F runs on the latest Android 8.1 Oreo (Go edition) and is powered by 1.3GHz quad-core processor. This optimised operating system (OS) is coming as the result of a recent partnership between itel mobile and Google. The new OS offers reimagined apps like Google Go, YouTube Go and Google Maps Go, which have smaller app size and also help to consume less space while making a big reduction in data consumption,” the company said.

Also, for a low-budget smartphone, itel made it a point of duty not to leave out the security feature as the itel A32F dons a rear-mounted multi-functional fingerprint scanner that unlocks the phone in just 0.3 seconds while allowing customers to answer calls, take pictures easily, quick launch apps, as their finger is always on that spot while holding the phone.

As for the core components, they are not particularly impressive, nevertheless they deliver a fluid performance with a quad-core 1.3GHz powered by MediaTek MT6580 processor paired with just 1GB of RAM and 8GB of ROM. Using the phone, customers found out it doesn’t suffer any lag or stutters. The operating system also ensures that the smartphone sails through day-to-day use such as browsing the web, capturing occasional photographs and using social media apps.
According to the manufacturer, the smartphone doesn’t heat up during normal use but leaves customers with a little hand warmer during heavy usage.
