Design and Display
The Itel P32 comes with a design that is of reasonable size and comfortable to handle. It is no doubt the slimmest Itel phone in the power[p] series.
As expected, the volume and power buttons are perfectly placed at the right-edge of the Itel P32, the micro USB port is at the bottom while the 3.5m headphone jack is at the top.
In front of the Itel P32 is nothing more than usual, what we have here is a 5.5inch IPS display that is vivid, clear, bright and rich in colors.
At the back of the Itel P32 are two nicely cut-out camera sensors with LED flash, fingerprint scanner and a down-facing speaker grill below.
The battery life is the most interesting part of the Itel P32, it is considered the biggest strength of this phone. No wonder the Itel P32 has become so popular in Nigeria.
If there is any single reason why you should consider buying the Itel P32 in Nigeria, this should be your number one.
On the Itel P32 is a 4000mAh battery that is long-lasting. Itel-mobile even promise up to 3 days power on a single charge.
Hmm I can hear someone already saying 3 days what?
How is that possible?
If you have once questioned the credibility of the above battery claim on the Itel P32, I must say you are on the right side. How can this even happen in the first place?
You see, Itel-mobile didn’t just throw a 4000mAh battery on the Itel P32 and expect it to last for 3 days, they actually applied some brilliant techniques to make it visible.
On the Itel P32 are three  smart power saving features that Itel-mobile implemented in other to make her 3 days power dream become a reality.
The first smart power saving feature is called the custom mode. With custom mode, you can easily conserve power by manually adjusting the battery settings on the Itel P32.
The second is called the smart power saving mode. This helps to automatically adjust the Itel P32 performance in order to extend battery life by 35 percent.
And lastly we have the power saving black technology feature that is targeted at socials, gaming and browsing apps.
This feature when implemented will help reduce power consumption significantly. It will also extend battery life by 20 percent without sacrificing User experience.
In addition to the above findings, if you really want to save more power on the Itel P32, I suggest you turn on the sleep mode.
The sleep mode works just like the one on your computer. It helps to put the Itel P32 to sleep whenever the screen light is turned off.
Aside battery life, the Itel P32 is also good at taking decent photos you can hardly belief is coming from a budget smartphone that is less than 30,000 naira in Nigeria.
On the camera scene is a 5MP front-facing camera with flashlight for taking low-light selfie shots. At the rear are two 5MP cameras with LED flash.
The first 5MP camera captures the Ideal image while the second 5MP camera assist with supplemental effects like blurred background.
The Itel P32 cameras can also render other camera features like portrait shots with automatic face recognition.
Software, Spec and Performance
The Itel P32 comes with android 8.1 Oreo operating system. It runs on a 1.3GHz quad-core processor, has 1GB RAM and 16 GB ROM which can be expandable via micro SD card slot.
Navigating around the Itel P32 didn’t display any lag at all considering the fact that it has a 1GB RAM and fast processor.
Playing games and watching movies with the Itel P32 in Nigeria wasn’t disappointing too, the refresh rate was okay and the display was very colorful and bright.
The Itel P32 is no doubt my best budget smartphone in Nigeria. Among all the Itel phones that came out in 2018, this is my most preferred.
I strongly recommend the Itel P32 for anyone who is looking for the best budget phone to buy at lower cost. i bet you, you won’t regret it.
If you have n’t bought one yet, I suggest you buy now.
