Itel Vision 2 Plus is the enhanced version of the Itel Vision 2. It is the successor to the Vision series’s Itel Vision 1 Plus. Vision 2 Plus was first released in June 2021. Only about half a month later, Itel has brought a new variant of Vision 2 Plus in July 2021. So, what's new in this new variant, and how much might it cost? This article presents details about the features of the Itel Vision 2 Plus.
Itel Vision 2 Plus Full Review
The Itel Vision 2 Plus has an elegant design that goes beyond its budget range. With a 7-inch height, the phone will give a tab-like impression. Users might find the phone hard to operate with one hand.
The overall design of the phone is eye-catchy and satisfactory. The matte textured pattern finish on the back with a gradient effect won't let users complain about the look. The subtle texture will give more of a hand feel than a visual feel. It makes a better grip possible over the giant phone and protects the back from taking any stain.
A dual-camera slot, a fingerprint sensor is placed on the rear side of the phone. The fingerprint sensor might feel like it is a bit higher than where it should have been, as reaching it with the finger takes effort. The right side of the phone gives room to a volume rocker and power button. The sim cardholder is at the left, while a loudspeaker and an audio jack are at the bottom. Clearly, users are going to get more than just the basics.
It has given a 6.8-inch Full HD IPS display that supports up to 720p resolution. That is much more than that of other entry-level phones. Extra-large and better-quality screen is something rare in low-budget phones. To add to its robustness, the phone offers a 60Hz refresh rate in its display. That means the touch response will also be a good experience for the users.
What seems to be an issue is the low level of brightness in the display. It introduces two types of effects. The colors projected on the screen seem less standard, and the display goes completely dark in the sunshine. To operate then, the brightness level needs to be set to the highest. On the top right corner of the display is a teardrop camera housing. Also, the chin and bezel of the phone are comparatively thinner. So, these won’t bother users much while watching videos or playing games.
The primary camera panel comes with two cameras. The primary camera is a 13MP wide lens, and with it, there is a 0.3MP depth sensor which is claimed to be an AI sensor. The images processed by these lenses are average, and nothing beyond expectation will come out from Vision 2 Plus cameras.
There wasn’t enough dynamic ratio managed by the cameras. The delivered images seem to have a bit warm tone. The tone sometimes adds some extra value to the overall look of the images, while sometimes it ruins the ambiance. The contrast rises in the low light. Photos taken at night need extra care to get a considerable quality. Users can record videos at 30fps for a maximum 1080p resolution with the primary camera.
The front teardrop camera holder rooms a 5MP selfie camera. Considering the trend in other budget phones, Vision 2 Plus could easily introduce at least an 8MP lens at the front. The front camera simply enhances the brightness level of the picture. That produces clear photos; however, the picture gets smoother due to a lack of sharpness and details. Pictures taken in the portrait mode are of average quality and have nothing to add to their side.
Performance, Software, and UI
The phone comes with an octa-core Spreadtrum UniSoC chipset. This chipset is more likely to come in lower mid-budget phones. But Vision 2 Plus has made it in their cheap price phone. To accompany the processor, the PowerVR GE8322 GPU has been installed. The CPU is equipped with Unisoc SC9863A (28nm) chipset.
Combined with their strengths, the phone gives a great regular task processing performance and low-level gameplay. The newly released 3GB × 64GB variant performs a little better in multitasking and app browsing.
However, the overall gameplay is not good as the phone lags during running high-config games like PUBG and Call of Duty. Users shouldn't play such games with this phone; otherwise, it will put pressure on the processor.
When it comes to the skin, even the later release of Vision 2 Plus has come with the Android 10 base version. The best choice would be the Android 11 as it would smoothen some tasks and give a better experience.
Battery and Charging
Now comes another strong point of Vision 2 Plus. It presents a 5000 mAh battery that can keep the phone alive for even two days at a stretch for a regular user. Heavy users can run the phone for one day at least with long hours of video watching and gaming.
But it breaks hearts to see that still now a phone offers a 5W charger. It's like giving a bucket to fill up an empty ocean with water. A 15W battery would be the most optimal here. The charger needs around 6 to 7 hours to charge the battery to the fullest.

When the first Vision 2 Plus got released, many left sighs of despair as the phone didn't bring a 3GB variant. Well, the despair has been mitigated so far. The basic 2GB × 32GB version still costs BDT 8,990, when the 3GB × 64GB version is priced BDT 9,990. The price is subjected to change depending upon the company's decisions.
The market for cheap phones is becoming one of the most crowded of all. To raise one's head in such a crowd is tough. With elegant design, large display, competitive RAM and storage, and a huge battery, the Itel Vision 2 Plus has made its effort. All the other lacks will not seem to be issued if considered against the price. If you want a low-budget phone with smart features to have a take on your regular tasks, Itel Vision 2 Plus is your phone.
