Itel S32 is another low-end phone from iTel. This smart phone is a cool device, when used by the kind of users it was designed for. One of the most inserting things about this smart phone, is that it comes with a total of three camera. This feature makes it possible for low-end users to catch a glimpse of what it feels like to use a three-camera smart device. A user trying to get this smart device, should not make the mistake of buying iTel A32F. S32 and A32F are clearly different.
Itel S32 Review
iTel S32 is come with support for two SIM cards. In other words, this smart phone is a dual SIM device. Its support for two SIM cards helps save users the need to have multiple phones. However, the SIM cards this smart phone support, are both micro SIM card and nano SIM card. If the SIM cards of a user are only micro SIM card, the user can always use a SIM cutter to cut their SIM cards into nano SIM cards.
iTel S32 has the design of a typical low-end smart phone. By looking a it, it can be easily discovered that the phone is a low-end smart phone. However, this fact that the phone can be easily recognised as a low-end smart phone, does not mean it is ugly. Rather than being ugly, the smart phone is cool. S32 comes in just three colours, grey, champagne gold, and rose gold. Unlike some Android smart phones, this smart device is not thick.
iTel S32 is nice when it comes to the aspect of display. While 2018 low-end smart phones are expected to come with displays of 5.00 inches (12.7 cm), the smart phone came with a display of 5.50 inches (13.97 cm). This size is clearly not the standard for 2018 low-end smart phones, but it is the standard for 2018 mid-range smart phones. In addition, the 5.50 inches (13.97 cm) display of S32, belongs the in-plane switching family. The display has a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, which leaves it with a pixel density of 294 pixels per inch.
Just like majority of iTel smart phones, iTel S32 is powered by a Chinese chipset. The chipset is a product of the popular chipset maker, MediaTek. The chipset is furthermore made up four cores that operate collaboratively on tasks. Each of these cores are capable of working at speeds between 0.00 GHz and 1.20 GHz. Clearly, this is smaller than what is expected from low-end smart phones (0.00 GHz to 1.30 GHz).
iTel S32 uses a 1 GB random access memory. Generally, this RAM is small, but looking at the kind of smart phone that will use it, it isn’t small. A 1 GB RAM is the standard RAM a low-end smart phone needs, to operate smoothly. Equipping a RAM larger than this, would have been a waste for the kind of people this smart phone was designed for. Unlike laptop, more RAM can not be added to this smart phone. A user who desires this phone may have to look at some other smart phones.
7.0 Nougat is the version of Android that iTel S32 runs. This OS is frowned at, by mid-range and high-end users, but it is okay for a low-end smart phone. And Nougat is a very cool operating system, especially when a user’s phone runs an unmodified build of the operating system. Apart from being a cool operating system, this operating system is also a power-efficient OS.
Featuring of three cameras is now becoming a norm for Android smart phone users, and interestingly, this smart phone does not miss out from this trend. The smart phone comes with two cameras in the front, and a camera on its rear side. The front cameras of this device are a 2 MP camera and an 8 MP camera. The rear camera on the other hand, is another cool 8 MP camera.
iTel S32 exceeds the storage space standard for low-end smart phones. Rather than coming with an 8 GB flash storage, this smart phone comes with a 16 GB flash storage. With a storage device as large as this, a typical user of this smart phone should have no need for additional storage space. In event there is need to expand the phone storage capacity, a micro SD can be inserted into the smart phone.

The display of iTel S32 is one of the most impressive things about the smart phone. The smart phone comes with a display that measures 5.50 inches (13.97 cm). While a 5.50 inches (13.97 cm) display is not a big deal, it is a very cool thing for a phone like S32. As S32 is a low-end smart phone, the device is expected to come with just a display of 5.00 inches (12.7 cm). Owing to the additional 0.50 inches (1.27 cm), iTel S32 truly stands out in the aspect of display.
iTel S32 not only come with a large display, but also comes with a standard resolution. The device has a resolution clearly superior to many other low-end phones from iTel. This resolution in question is 720 x 1280 pixels, where 720 pixels are spread across 1280 rows. Making some calculations, it was discovered that the pixel density of the display of this smart phone is 294 pixels per inch (ppi). In addition, iTel A32’s display belongs to the in-plane switching family.
Just as Itel S32 is outstanding in the aspect of display, the smart phone is outstanding in the aspect of cameras. The reason for stating that this smart phone is outstanding, is that it follows a current trend among new smart phones. The smart device comes with a total of three cameras. While three cameras is a feature of mid-range and high-end smart phones, this device makes it possible for low-end users to get a feel of what it’s like to use a three-camera smart phone.
In a typical three-camera smart phone, there exists two of the three cameras on its rear side, while the third camera is positioned in their front. iTel A32 has things a little different from a typical three-camera phone. The smart device comes with two of its three cameras in its front, while the third camera of the phone is positioned on its rear side.
The front cameras of iTel S32, are a 2 MP camera and an 8 MP camera. These two cameras are well-enhanced and take cool pictures. Although, epic pictures should not be expected from this smart device, but the camera is produces cameras with considerable quality. iTel S32 comes with a rear camera that has a resolution of 8 megapixels. With such a resolution, the camera will take pictures that are as cool as those taken by the 8 MP selfie camera of the phone.
iTel S32 is powered by a MediaTek chipset. With the help of this chipset, the system of hardware of S32 can work together to produced the results it been developed for. The chipset that powers this smart phone carries out operations like: directing the hardware and coordinating the activities of these hardware. S32’s chipset is not a common chipset, so it will be quite pointless stating its name.
The chipset that champions iTel S32 is a quad-core chipset. Putting in simpler terms, the chipset is composed of four processors. The processors of this chipset are standard processors. By standard processors, we mean processors that come with standard processing speed. Giving further details, these processors are capable of operating at speed that fall within the range 0.00 GHz and 1.30 GHz.
iTel low-end phones do not generally come with powerful batteries. Apart from their phones that start with P and some other ones, their phones come with batteries between the range of 1500 mAh and 2500 mAh. Batteries with capacities within this range, are not what majority of other manufacturers feature in their phones, but this should not be seen as a catch for those iTel phones. The reason for this is that the hardware of these phones are not power-consuming, so they do not need very powerful batteries.
iTel S32 is just like most low-end smartphones of iTel, in that it does not feature hardware that are power-wasteful. Despite being a power-efficient smartphone, the phone comes with a cool 3000 mAh battery. With this kind of battery, the need to charge the phone often will be reduced. In addition to having a capacity of 3000 mAh, iTel S32’s battery belongs to the Li-Po family.
A lot has been said about the specs and features of iTel S32, it is however also worthwhile to discuss the smart phone’s appearance. Taking measurements in millimetres, the phone has a body dimension of 154.40 x 77.20 x 8.20 mm. Those who are familiar with mid-range smartphones can clearly see that this phone has the size of a typical mid-range smartphone, although it isn’t a mid-range smart device.
Something interesting about iTel S32 is that is has a lightweight, despite being as large as mid-range smartphones. The smartphone comes with a weight of 160 grams. The lightness of the phone can probably be attributed to the fact that is has a plastic casing. Whatever it is, being light is a really cool thing. In addition, the plastic casing of iTel S32 can come in a number of colours, and these colours are namely space grey, champagne gold, and rose gold.
For a user looking forward to buying this smartphone, it is important to note that the phone runs Android 7.0 Nougat. The device does not run Android 8.0 Oreo, as some may expect. However, this does not mean the smartphone should not be bought because it runs an older version of Android. The point is that anyone who looks forward to buying the phone should be sure they are comfortable running Nougat.
The flash storage that iTel S32 comes with, is a flash storage that has a capacity of 16 GB. This is clearly larger than the 8 GB expected from low-end smartphones. With an additional 8 GB of storage space, an ideal user of this phone shouldn’t need storage space expansion. However, if there is ever the need to expand the smart phone’s storage, a 32 GB micro SD card can be used.
