      Can I have a higher version that supports 4g network?

      • Sorry, this is the highest version of P33. The CPU is UniSoC/Spreadtrum SC7731E and it does not have support for 4G LTE network.

      • Oluwaseunfunmi says:

        How can I set the screen dub taping

      • Roland Egaroghene says:

        Good day sir, the p33 plus I bought yesterday look very fake. The color are dull, the speed slow, why is it so. I used itel S11 and I enjoyed that thinking this will give me more Joy but opposite is the case.

      • Hello Rolland… Sorry for your troubles. Please test the phone with Antutu Benchmark or CPU-Z and upload a screen shot via the comment section.

      • Roland Egaroghene says:

        Sir, how do I do that test you asked me to do. I need help, thanks

      • 1. Just Click here to download CPU Z from Play store
        2. Run the app and allow it to analyze your device.
        3. When testing is done, just upload the first screenshot

      • Roland Egaroghene says:

        I have done it, how to upload it to you now is my problem. How do I get it to you through the uploading

      • See upload button, just above post comment button, to your right.

      • Roland Egaroghene says:

        Good day sir, thanks so much for your generous heart to help. But this phone doesn’t have that bottom.if you are on WhatsApp send me the details let me use WhatsApp to upload it to you

      • Roland… The button to upload your screen shot is on our website, not on your phone. When you finish typing your reply, you will notice a little camera icon, just above the ‘Post Comment’ button. Touch that icon, and you’ll get options to upload your images. Alternatively, you send the screenshot to me via the contact us page. https://droidafrica.net/contact-us/

      • Roland Egaroghene says:

        I have sent it through the contact us. Please check. Thanks.

      • Roland Egaroghene says:

        Good day, how do I copy my contact from SIM to phone and from phone to SIM

      • Sir, from the screenshot you sent. The device is original. For the slowness, try reducing your apps, remember it 1GB RAM phone. As for the color reproduction, I have little to say. I had wanted to review the P33, but the screen was poor on first sight, so I got discouraged. Perhaps it the issue with all itel P33-series, including the P33 Plus.

        Please, anyone with iTel P33 or P33 plus should say something about the screen. Thanks.

      • Roland Egaroghene says:

        Alright Mr. Droid, thanks for your help. Let me use it like that for now. God bless you.

      • Roland Egaroghene says:

        How do you I copy numbers from SIM to phone or phone to SIM

    • OTG is partly hardware and partly software. If hardware is not available, software won’t work

    • Nothing you can do

      • Francis says:

    • Hello Albert Eluwole, I’m sure you are doing well. As clearly stated on the About Us page (https://droidafrica.net/about-us/, image below), we currently do not sell phones on DroidAfrica. The price you see above is used to deal with the problem of price fluctuations. Actually market price can be lower or higher. In either case, thanks for using our services.

  22. Rose says:

    Dear Droid. Kindly explain how to upgrade the itel P33+ to a 3g or possibly 4g compliant. The 2 g is so slow for my internet forex operation, rgds

    • Hello Rose… You are not upgrading. You just need to turn on 3G from your network options in phone setting… Preferably, put your data SIM in SIM slot 1, and change the ‘network type’ to 3G/WCDMA/HSDPA. That’s all.

    • A lot of factors could be responsible for this. But if mobile calling network is working, but Mobile Data network is not, the best place to start is to ensure that APN settings are correct for the respective mobile carrier being used. Some times, and for some carriers, APN setting must be done manually.
