iTel S16 User Reviews and Opinions


  1. Comment: lattest phones suppose to be 2GB RAM and not less and suppose to have magnetnometer, gyroscope etc. Though itel is trying by making their phones affordable especially for students who need this features stated above especially for certain type of experiments in the scientific field. I look forward to an improvement in all these areas. God bless you! Amen!.

  2. Is the phone good and hope it doesn’t get hot when using it and also hope the phone doesn’t slow when at least 5 apps is open down

  3. You make an Itel S16 go or plus, were you will modify the ram and camera aleast 13mp.
    The phone is fine the ram is annoying

  4. Itel is a big company. Stop making 3g phones and 16gb.your phones are nice.work on the ram, space and network speed. At least 2gb ram going up,32gb space going up and at least 4g or lite network

  5. Please can someone answer me vis questions cos am interested in dis phone
    *does it last battery
    *it de camera clear
    *is it fast in browsing

  6. No 4g network yet currently we are at 5g network, why still behind; producing big phones with less expectations sounds terrible 1 gb ram with 1.3 ghz processor doesn’t look cool anymore keep up next time
