itel shares the same parent company with Infinix and Tecno. In a sense, the brand trio is known for offering standard entry-level to mid-range smartphones. itel particularly specializes in the budget-friendly segment with its range of smartphones. Recently, the itel A70 was announced on 30th October 2023 for a global release. Let’s check out how it stacks against the competitors. Key Specifications of itel A70 Design and Build Quality Itel A70 has a plastic frame and back with a front LCD panel. The front and the back of the device aren’t flush with each other which is a unique design choice on its own. The exact dimension and weight of the device couldn’t be confirmed but the thickness comes in at 8.6 mm. The frosted finish on the back and the iPhone-like camera housing give the A70 a premium look. The headphone jack and other features come as standard on the A70. Overall the design isn't anything new, but rather a repacked version of a common entry-level smartphone design.

The water drop notch and the chin bezel are again something that’s very common in budget smartphones. The 6.6-inch panel has 500 nits of peak brightness and 60 Hz refresh rate. It performs well for an HD+ LCD panel with good contrast and viewing angles. The Camera There is a dual camera setup on the itel A70. Even though the back camera is arranged like that of the iPhone, one of the three cutouts is actually for the LED flash. The main camera is a 13 MP sensor with HDR and AI enhancement. The secondary sensor is a 0.08 MP auxiliary sensor. Pictures taken on the A70 during the daylight are decent. Dynamic range was on the average side but there were good details on the subject. However, the image quality dropped significantly in low light as there was noticeable noise and grains in the pictures. There is also a generic 8MP front sensor that produces good photos with AI enhancements. The videography on the A70 is rated to be 1080P at 30 fps.

The octa-core processor is an entry-level chip that is designed for basic use. The processor handles day-to-day tasks like browsing the web, social media, or watching YouTube videos pretty well. The processor isn’t really made for gaming as there were a lot of heating and frame drops on 3D games. Considering the low processing power, itel has opted for the Android 13 Go edition for the A70. It is a lightweight OS with basic Android features. Overall the performance of the itel A70 is satisfactory if the price is taken into account. Battery and Charge Time The battery on the itel A70 is 5000 mAh. There is an included 10W wired charger with the device. Expect to get an all-day battery out of the A70 on a full charge with moderate use. Pros and Cons of itel A70 Pros: - Stylish design - Dynamic bar - AI features on the camera - Good battery life. Read more: Honor X6a Review: A minimalist budget-friendly phone with standard features Cons: - Basic Android experience - Below-par processing power Price of the itel A70 Itel A70 is available in the 4/128 GB variant in India. The price of the A70 is 7,490 INR or 9,899 BDT (1 INR = 1.32 BDT). However, the official price is expected to differ once the device becomes officially available in Bangladesh. Verdict For a sub-10,000 BDT device, the itel A70 gets a lot of the things right. There are obvious cut corners in the form of processing power. But that is well compensated with a good display and camera. It's hard to expect anything more from a budget-friendly device. For what it's worth, the A70 can be a great starter android for casual users. Read more: Infinix Smart 8 Review: Affordable Excellence in Entry-Level Smartphones
Ever since the itel S23+ has been announced, there has been quite a hype around this smartphone. itel is known for its smartphones in the entry-level to mid-range segment. The brand launched its S23+ on 19th September 2023 in India. Beyond the obvious confusion with Samsung’s flagship, the itel S23+ brings surprising features that are almost unthinkable in the budget segment. So what’s this hype about? Let’s find out. Key Specifications of Itel S23+ Design and Build Quality The design and naming philosophy of the smartphone can be considered a cosmopolitan mix of brand identities. The back looks like the iPhone, the front like Huawei, and a name that mimics the Samsung flagship, the S23+ has a lot going for itself. But on a serious note, it is surprising to see itel pull off a sleek-looking curved screen device at such an ultra-budget price segment. The exact dimensions of the smartphone couldn’t be confirmed but the device is 7.9 mm thick with 178 g weight. There are two color options – Lake Cyan and Elemental Blue. Read more: realme C33 Review: Key specs, pros, and cons There is a large camera housing on the back that looks exactly like that of the iPhone Pro, except it is much larger in size and one of the arranged sensor spaces is actually dedicated to the flashlight. The plastic back has a frosted finish that gives it a glass-like look. However, the main design attraction is at the front with the curved panel. The scant bezels on the top and bottom along with the small punch-hole camera make the display look like an upper mid-range or flagship device. Read more: Symphony Z47 Review: 90Hz Refresh Rate on a Budget Device Another interesting feature is the in-display fingerprint scanner which is also uncommon in budget smartphones. Ports and buttons are as usual but the micro SDXC and the 3.5 mm headphone jack are missing on the S23+ which is a bit odd considering these are almost staple in budget smartphones. The Display The display on the itel S23+ is a 6.78-inch AMOLED curved panel with FHD+ resolution. The panel has a 1080 x 2400 pixels distribution at a 20:9 ratio and 388 ppi density. It is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The display is what’s usually seen on a mid-range smartphone. Except the S23+ is placed almost in an ultra-budget segment. The performance of the display has been pretty good. There’s a decent amount of curve on both sides but itel has optimized the OS well to ensure there aren’t any accidental touches. The color reproduction looked great with good viewing angles all around. There’s also 500 nits of peak brightness on the panel which makes it fairly legible under direct sunlight. Read more: itel Vision 5 Plus Review: Standard Phone under Tk14000 The display of the S23+ has generated considerable buzz around the smartphone and honestly, the hype here is absolutely justified. The only lacking would be a higher refresh rate but its absence doesn’t take away anything from an already great experience. The Camera There’s a dual camera setup on the S23+. The flashlight is arranged in such a way that it might look like a triple camera sensor at first glance. The main camera is a 50 MP f/1.6 wide-angle shooter with AF. The secondary camera is a 0.08 MP camera. The S23+ is essentially a single-camera smartphone as the secondary camera won’t be of any practical use. Even then, the camera performed pretty well. Pictures taken outdoors and in bright conditions came out sharp and crisp. The dynamic range was average and the shadow exposures were a hit and miss at times.

itel Mobile is a Chinese company headquartered at Shenzhen in China. Founded in 2014, this company sells entry-level and budget phones. itel launched its latest budget phone Vision 5 Plus on November 5, 2022. Can Vision 5 Plus achieve the same level of popularity as its predecessors? Let's take a look at the key specs of the itel Vision 5 Plus. Key Features of Itel Vision 5 Plus Design The itel Vision 5 Plus is made completely of plastic. It boasts the same sleek, fingerprint-resistant screen as earlier itel products. Although the overall look is mediocre, it is resistant to smearing and scratching, which is a big advantage in this field. Although the novel wavy gradient design is intriguing, itel will soon unveil an entirely new style. The unique camera design of this phone distinguishes it from prior itel products. The camera module is flush with the body, and the thickness of the device is not excessive. The rear of the phone has a triple-lens setup. Read More: Symphony Z47 Review: 90Hz Refresh Rate on a Budget Device Despite this, the phone weighs over 194 grams, making it scarcely portable. In addition, this phone is not ergonomic or comfortable to use with one hand. I'm not sure whether this is due to the width of the device or the way the back curves outward. On the right are a power button and volume rocker, while on the bottom is a 3.5mm jack, a microphone, a micro-USB 2.0 port, and the speaker grille. Left-side triple card slot accepts two 4G SIM cards and a microSD card. Display As promised, the itel Vision 5 Plus boasts a 6.6 inches IPS LCD screen with a 720 x 1640 pixels resolution. However, the absence of Widevine L1 means that consumers will continue to be unable to watch Netflix and other Full HD services. This software issue will be addressed later in this article. Read More: realme C33 Review: Key specs, pros, and cons Camera The smartphone's back panel has a circular triple camera arrangement with a 16MP primary sensor, a 2MP macro lens, and a 0.3MP VGA sensor. The back camera of the Vision 5 Plus includes many modes, including VGA Camera, Super Night, Beauty, Short Video, and strong HDR. When it comes to the performance of the back camera, the smartphone maker did a good job, as it captures acceptable nighttime photographs when utilizing the Super night mode and crisp, detailed daytime images. In a word, the rear camera produces vivid and crisp images. In Vision 5 Plus, users will get a 5MP front-facing camera, which is acceptable in most conditions but inadequate in low light. However, it is quite disappointing that a smartphone in this price range cannot take exceptional selfies. Therefore, the company may enhance the use of the phone's front-facing camera. The front camera includes several modes, such as augmented reality, portrait, beauty, and short videos.

Performance and Software itel Vision 5 Plus bears an octa-core processor sporting a Spreadtrum Unisoc T606 12nm processor. Multitasking is effective on the smartphone, and there is no discernible lag while playing entry-level games or streaming movies. Vision 5 Plus has 4GB RAM combined with 128GB of internal storage. You can keep local files, images, videos, music, and other content on this device without getting concerned about storage issues. Read More: Xiaomi Redmi 11 Prime Review: Performance at a budget price When it comes to gaming, graphics and RAM are pretty enough. Even games with high-quality graphics may be run and played with relative ease and fluidity on this phone. While downloading and playing high-end games such as Call of Duty, its system took less than five minutes. However, you may experience overheating issues in this device after an hour of gaming or heavy usage. Battery and Charger The mobile device has an unremovable Li-Po battery with a 5000 mAh capacity. You can get a total of 132 hours of standby time. Around 14 hours of support is expectable for surfing the internet with it. If the battery is fully charged, you will have nearly up to 28 hours of conversation time. When using 18W rapid charging, the phone will be completely charged in around 2 hours and 10 minutes. Price of itel Vision 5 Plus in Bangladesh The phone is officially available in Bangladesh. itel vision 5 plus’s (4/128GB) price is started at 13,690 Taka. However, the price is subject to change. Read More: realme brings C30 to Bangladesh Conclusion The pros of this phone include standard RAM, processor, and battery. The display and camera sections could have been better. This budget gaming phone can run online games such as Free Fire and others. On the whole, those who are looking for a reliable smartphone under Tk14,000 for multi-tasking and entry-level gaming may consider the itel Vision 5 Plus.
China-based mobile phone maker itel has brought its Vision 5 Plus smartphone to Bangladesh. The device is equipped with a 6.6-inchFHD+ Display, 128GB storage+4GB, Tiger 606 processor, 7GB RAM (4GB+3GB), 5000mAh with 18W fast charge and side-mounted fingerprint for Tk13,690, according to a media statement.

Also, it can make the picture quality more delicate and the effect more natural and realistic. Vision 5 Plus has a 16MP triple rear AI camera and a 5MP selfie camera with flash. The device comes in two colours: Liquid Silver and Sunshine Blue colours.
The Itel Vision 3 is the newest member of the Itel Vision family. It is the budget-friendly successor to the Itel Vision 2S. Vision 3 was first presented in Bangladesh in January 2022. The Itel series has already garnered accolades for its ability to provide high-quality phones to budget-conscious users. The organization has made another step further on its predetermined route with Vision 3. The phone has already piqued public interest. This article offers a complete examination of the phone's features and capabilities. Itel Vision 3 Smartphone Full Review Design The Intel Vision 3 has an exquisite appearance that well exceeds its price range. The phone's 6'6" screen gives it an illusion of a huge screen. Users may struggle to use the phone with one hand. The general design of the phone is attractive and useful. Users will have no complaints about the aesthetic due to the gradient glow patterned finish on the back. The little texture will provide a tactile sensation in addition to the visual sense. It provides a more secure grip on the colossal phone and protects the back from stains. Read Symphony Z45 Review: Handy budget smartphone with basic features A dual-camera slot and a fingerprint sensor are located on the phone's rear. Due to the effort required to reach there with the finger, the fingerprint sensor will sense precisely where it should have been. On the right side of the phone, you'll find the volume rocker and power button. On the left is placed the SIM card slot, while the bottom has a loudspeaker and an audio connection. Clearly, customers will get more than the bare necessities. Display It includes a 6.6-inch 720x1600 pixel HD+ Water Drop display. That is far more expensive than similar entry-level phones. Screens that are excessively big and of superior quality are unusual in low-cost phones. The display of the phone has a 20:9 aspect ratio. This means that people will have a favorable response to the touch. The display's reduced brightness level seems to be an issue. It introduces two new types of effects. The screen's colors seem less natural, and the display goes completely dark in direct sunshine. To function properly, the brightness level must be set to maximum. Read realme 9i: A step in the style and performance A teardrop camera room can be observed in the display's top center corner. Additionally, the chin and bezel of the phone are substantially slimmer. As a consequence, consumers will be uninhibited when watching movies or playing games. Rear Cameras Two cameras are located on the primary camera panel. The primary camera has an 8MP wide-angle lens, and a 0.3MP AI sensor that the company claims is an AI sensor. These lenses provide average images, and Vision 3 cameras will create nothing extraordinary. The cameras lacked an adequate dynamic range. The images presented seem to have a somewhat warmer tone. The tone improves or detracts from the overall look of the images at times. Contrast rises in dim light. Photographs taken at night need more care to maintain a high degree of quality. Users may record videos at a maximum resolution of 1080p at 30 frames per second with the primary camera. Read Samsung Galaxy A03 Review: Is it a worthy budget phone? Front Camera The front teardrop camera holder houses a 5MP selfie camera. Given the trend in recent low-cost phones, the Vision 3's front-facing camera might easily be 8MP. The front camera does little more than increase the image's brightness. This produces crisp images, but the image becomes smoother as a consequence of the loss of sharpness and detail. Photographs taken in portrait mode are of inferior quality and add little to their composition. Performance and Software A 1.6GHz Octa-Core CPU powers the phone. This chipset is more often seen in entry-level to mid-range smartphones. The Vision 3 has, however, made it into their low-cost phone. To complement the CPU, a GPU has been introduced. When these characteristics are combined, the phone delivers outstanding performance for routine tasks and low-level games. In multitasking and app browsing, the newly introduced 4GB 64GB model exceeds the previous models. Read Infinix Zero 5G Review: Is it a worthy budget phone? However, overall performance is lacking since the phone slows down significantly while playing high-resolution games like PUBG and Call of Duty. Users should avoid playing such games on this phone as they will put the CPU under pressure. Even the most recent Vision 2S versions have the Android 11 basic version. Battery and Charger This takes us to another of Vision 3's distinguishing characteristics. It is equipped with a 5000 mAh battery that can power the phone for up to two days on a single charge for the average user. Heavy users may be able to operate the phone for at least one day with prolonged hours of video watching and gaming. Read Vivo V23e 5G Review: Is it a good mid-range camera phone? However, it breaks our hearts to learn that a phone comes with an 18W charger. It's analogous to passing over a bucket in order to fill an ocean with water. The charger will take around one to two hours to completely charge the battery. Price of Itel Vision 3 in Bangladesh The Itel Vision 3 is now available in 2GB, 3GB, and 4GB RAM versions. The maximum capacity phone is the 4GB 64GB model, which costs BDT 10,490. The 2GB 32GB version costs 8290 Tk and 3GB 64GB costs 9190 Tk. Conclusion The market for low-cost smartphones is growing more crowded. The Itel Vision 3 continues to stand out because of its stunning look, enormous display, ample storage, and large battery. When compared to the price, all of the other flaws do not seem to be significant. In an overall inspection, the phone has nothing much new to offer or add to the portfolio of the previous vision models. However, features like the stronger charger and better and longer display can add some extra value. If you're looking for a low-cost phone with smart capabilities to assist you with everyday tasks, the Itel Vision 3 is for you. Read Redmi Note 11 Review: Another budget performer from Xiaomi

The itel Vision 2S is the latest addition to the itel Vision series. It is the direct successor of the itel Vision 2 Plus, yet a budget-friendly one. Vision 2S was first introduced on 7th September 2021 in India. The itel series has already received praise for providing quality handsets to budget cautious consumers. With Vision 2S, the company has taken another step to their set path. The phone has already grabbed people's attention. This article is a full review of itel Vision 2S highlighting its features and functionalities. itel Vision 2S: Review of Key Features Design The Intel Vision 2S features a beautiful design that goes above and beyond its price point. The phone's dimensions are 166 x 76.30 x 8.90mm, giving it a large screen appearance. Users may feel it is hard to use the phone with a single hand. The phone's overall design is appealing and functional. Users will not be able to complain about the appearance thanks to the matte textured pattern finish on the rear with a gradient effect. The slight texture will provide a hand feel rather than a visual sense. It allows you better hold on to the massive phone and protects the rear from staining. Read: Itel Vision 2 Plus Review: Know the Advantages and Disadvantages On the rear, there is a dual-camera slot and a fingerprint sensor. Reaching it with the finger requires no effort, as the fingerprint sensor is located exactly where it should have been. The volume adjuster and power button are placed on the phone's right side. The SIM card slot is on the left, with a loudspeaker and an audio jack on the bottom. Clearly, consumers will get more than just the essentials. Display In low-cost phones, large screens and quality displays are quite uncommon. Thanks to itel for providing a 6.52-inch display with a resolution of 720x1600 pixels in their latest innovation Vision 2S. The phone's display has an aspect ratio of 20:9. That implies the users will have a positive experience with the touch reaction. The decreased brightness level of the display seems to be a problem. It adds two kinds of impacts. The colours on the screen seem less normal, and the display turns totally black in direct sunlight. To improve the brightness, consumers have to adjust the brightness level to the maximum. Read Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Lite: Does it deserve your attention? A teardrop camera room can be seen in the upper-middle corner of the display. In addition, the phone's chin and bezel are noticeably smaller. Hence, users will not be bothered by these when viewing movies or playing games. The Rear Lenses The main camera panel has two cameras. The main camera has an 8MP wide lens and a 0.3MP depth sensor that is touted to be an AI sensor. The pictures captured by these lenses are mediocre. The cameras did not achieve a sufficient dynamic ratio. The pictures provided seem to have a somewhat warmer tone. The tone sometimes enhances the overall appearance of the pictures, while other times it detracts from them. In low light, the contrast increases. Photos shot at night need additional attention to achieve a high level of quality.

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 Design 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. Read Moto Edge 20 5G Smartphone Review: Know the Pros and Cons Display 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. Read Xiaomi POCO F3 GT Review: Can It Satisfy the Crazy Gamers? Front Camera 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. Read OnePlus Nord 2 5G Review: Is it worth buying? Secondary 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. Read Xiaomi POCO X3 GT Review: Does it Offer Value for Money? 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. Read Oppo Reno 6 Pro 5G Review: Is it worth it? 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. Official Price of Itel Vision 2 Plus Smartphone in Bangladesh 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. Final Verdict 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.

The smartphone market is right now brimmed with low-budget phones. One great reason behind this is smartphone parts are becoming cheaper with time. The power and features you can get within an entry-level phone were unimaginable even a couple of years ago. Itel has a goal to offer quality smartphones to consumers who are looking for cheap phones. Objectifying the same goal, the company has introduced another handset, “Itel Vision 2 Plus.” By its name, it is the descendant of the priorly released Itel Vision 2. This Itel Vision 2 Plus review will go through all the nitty-gritty details of the phone. Itel Vision 2 Plus Full Review Itel first announced the installation of Itel Vision 2 Plus in May 2021, and later in the same month, the phone got released. While their many features lent from its ancestral model Vision 2, a couple of tweaks have also been made. Design The hurdle of manufacturing an entry-level phone is making a balance among all the features. In most budget-phones are some strong and weak points. When it comes to Itel Vision 2 Plus, its design is one of the best features. It has around 7 inches giant body that is difficult to operate with one hand. The rear cover has a matte and textured finish. The texture is elegantly designed as it can only felt with a hand. Visualizing it is not easy from even a near distance. This specific finish has made the cover less sensitive to staining. The back has a dual camera panel on the upper left, a fingerprint sensor on the upper middle. It can be a little hurdle to reach the sensor as it might felt a bit higher than usual. A volume rocker with a power button is placed on the right side of the phone. On the left is a multi-channel dual sim cardholder. At the bottom, a mic, an audio jack, and a mini loudspeaker crowd. Read: Walton Primo R8 Review: Affordable phone with attractive features Display An IPS Full HD display might not ring the bell even when it comes with an entry-level phone. But what must beat the drum is getting a 6.8” IPS display featuring 720P resolution. The giant screen is a unique addition to a phone with such a minimal rate. Moreover, it has a 60-Hz display which justifies the phone. The touch response was not bad at all. However, the brightness of the phone is an issue in the presence of bright light. On the outside, even with full brightness, the display will show itself much. The color projection on the screen feels a bit wishy-washy as it lacks standard contrast. Still, it is better compared to other similarly rated phones in the market. Read Symphony Z35 Full Review with Price in Bangladesh Lenses and Snaps The rear camera panel contains two cameras. The primary one is a 13MP lens which is accompanied by a 0.3MP depth sensor. Cameras can break hearts if they are expected to deliver super-quality pictures. They will give as much as a low-budget phone should do. Daylight snaps are of good quality and project near perfect color range. However, they can seem a bit washed out as edge detection capacity is not up to the mark. Lowlight captures are not satisfactory as noise level overwhelms them. The secondary selfie camera is an 8MP lens that processes pictures that seem a bit washed out. Apart from it, the amount of brightness and color synchronization seems acceptable. Read: Vivo V21 Review with Price in Bangladesh Hardware and Performance The first reminder to the buyer of an entry-level phone is that he/she must compromise the performance. However, as it seems, Itel Vision 2 Plus has tried its best to incorporate a standard-level processor. The octa-core Spreadtrum UniSoC SC9863A chipset is not something people can get in such priced phones. Besides, the PowerVR GE8322 GPU has only strengthened the phone’s performance. This results in smooth regular task execution and multi-tasking. Users can also play low requirement games as long as they want. Such games will give them a lag-free, seamless experience. However, if anyone wants to play games PUBG, or Call of Duty, or Asphalt 9, and other high config games, he will be disappointed. They are unplayable with this phone. Another disappointment for the users is the operating system implemented in the Itel Vision 2 Plus. The company should have gone for the Android 11 instead of Android 10 GO Edition. Read: OPPO F19 Review with Price in Bangladesh Battery and Charging A huge 5000mAh battery is definitely pleasing when it comes to such a reasonable price. This extra-large battery will easily keep the phone alive for at least 8 to 10 hours. With limited use, it can even sustain more than a day. But what users can’t believe is the 5W charger that comes with the phone. It’s still a wonder how Itel decided to offer such a weak charger to fill up a battery that size. It’s like filling a water Jug with a tablespoon. The charger takes around 6 to 7 hours to feed the battery to its head.

It has 2GB RAM and 32GB internal memory. Interested people can get this phone at BDT 8,990. Though the price is unimaginably low, still the offered RAM capacity is a major downside for it. Even its ancestor phone Itel Vision 2 offers 3GB RAM. Depreciation in such an important feature is definitely a bad play from the smartphone company’s end. Read: Infinix Hot 10 Play Review with Price in Bangladesh Final Verdict Like all the other phones, Itel Vision 2 Plus has its own perks and disadvantages. The minimal price, large display, and ginormous battery surely play by the phone’s side. While the insufficient RAM, poor phone performance, camera performance, etc. downsize the phone’s overall quality. The phone will be the perfect fit for people who has a tight budget and still want a smartphone for regular tasks. Otherwise, buying this phone will be disappointing.
