Best itel smartphones in the PH, November 2023

Want to get an itel smartphone this year? We’ve got you covered with the top four now available in PH.

itel is going full force in the Philippines and is now offering several smartphones via online retailers. In this article, we showcased the best four itel smartphones in terms of features, specs, and prices.

Disclaimer: itel is China-based mobile phone manufacturer focused on budget-friendly models. However, many of them have features/specs often found on higher-end devices.

itel S23+

The itel S23+ is the company’s flagship offering in the Philippines. While it isn’t a powerhouse smartphone, it boasts something that even high-end brands won’t give to the masses.

This handset sports a 6.78 inches curved AMOLED display screen. That curved display has a screen-to-body ratio of 93% and is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5. It also has a resolution of 1080p for visual immersion.

To give that flagship vibe, itel S23+ features a 240Hz in-display fingerprint sensor for responsive unlocking. Check the full specs and price of itel S23+ below.

itel S23

The itel S23 is an entry-level smartphone with a color-changing design. When exposed to light, the rear panel shifts from one color to another, like from white to pink.

The handset has a 6.6 inches of IPS LCD display with a waterdrop notch. But it can deliver smooth performance with a 90Hz refresh rate. Since it’s nerfed compared to S23+, itel S23’s price is lower, which you can check below.

itel A70

If you want a budget phone that comes with a fresher look and huge storage, itel A70 should be on your list. This one has a 6.6-inch display screen with Dynamic Bar, an area that expands out from the notch to show you important notifications. 

itel A70 features a large 5000mAh battery and up to 256GB internal storage. You can further increase that via the microSD card slot.

You can read the full specs and price of itel A70 below.

itel Vision 5

Still down on budget? You may want to explore what itel Vision 50 has to offer. This smartphone features a triple-rear camera setup and a large 6.6 inches screen.

Although it’s a budget-level handset, itel Vision 50 comes with a big 5000mAh battery unit. You can look into the device’s full specs and price below.

What Should You Pick?

Let’s see the key specs and prices of these itel smartphones.

The SRP of itel S23+ is quite pricey but if you really want that beautiful, immersive curved display, wait for itel to launch a sale event.

For under 5K, the best bet is itel S23 since it has a bigger onboard memory than the other two. But if you can’t go over 4K, itel A70 is preferred because of its fresher look and bigger internal storage than itel Vision 50.

You can always wait for itel to launch sale events or the monthly events of online shopping platforms to maximize your budget.

Here’s how A70 is setting up the entry-level market.
