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

      • Ekpa, Stephen Monday says:

        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.

      • Ekpa, Stephen Monday says:

      • Roland Egaroghene says:

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

      • Ekpa, Stephen Monday says:

        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

      • Ekpa, Stephen Monday says:

        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

      • Ekpa, Stephen Monday says:

        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

      • Ekpa, Stephen Monday says:

        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.

    • Ekpa, Stephen Monday says:

      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.
