iTel A55 User Reviews and Opinions

20 COMMENTS

  1. *How smart and sharp are the cameras?
    *Can the battery of A55 last up to three days minimum?
    *Which is more reliable between Itel A55 and P33 Plus?
    *Which is better recommended?

    Please respond, I really need answers to these questions.

      • I’ll say charging isn’t the issue. As long as it won’t require everyday charging.
        But just wanted to know if the cameras ain’t the oily type. I hope you understand what I mean by that…

    • I don’t know what eye clear is but there are two ways to screenshot.
      1. Hold the power button and the lower volume button at the same time
      2. Check the icons in the notification bar and you’ll find one that looks like a scissors with screenshot written below it. Touch it to screenshot

    • There’s an icon above that looks like a lightning sign. Click it and you’ll see four options for flash. I thing it default setting is adaptable so in bright places it won’t flash but you can change that.

  2. Why would my operating system not allow me use my third party messaging app. It’s really frustrating. My messages wouldn’t come in when any other messaging app is set as default
