Value For Money
Design And Display
In terms of design and build quality, the itel SelfiePro smartphone easily beats every other phone at that price point. It looks and feels premium.
The side border is completely metallic and it is a premium quality metal. The back of the phone got good quality leather-plastic back which provided elegance and good grip.
Coming to the display now, we have a 5 inch HD display on this phone. It is a top quality display with fantastic colours on screen. The viewing angles are good and the touch is smooth. The itel SelfiePro packs in 294 pixels per inch.
We have a 64 bit MediaTek 6735P CPU on this phone clocking at 1 Ghz and 1 GB of RAM. The Antutu benchmark gives this phone a low score of 16439.
For regular users: Running multiple apps is not an easy task on this phone. You can use Whatsapp, send emails and listen to songs simultaneously. But if you put too much load on the device, it will slow down. Thankfully, they have provided a one touch app clean up option in the recent app screen itself. I used this regularly but still the phone hung up a lot.
For gamers: This phone is not for people who want a decent gaming performance from their budget handsets.
The phone features a rear 8 MP camera and a 2 MP front facing camera. The rear camera has dual flash. It is like two white flashes and not a dual tone flash. The front camera too has a flash which can be used as a regular flash while clicking a selfie or can be used as a torch in order to provide additional light to your photograph.
The rear camera is slightly better than average and can click decent images under proper lights. The front facing camera is impressive and can click clear selfies. Do turn on the flash for the best results!

We have a 2500 mAh battery under the hood of the itel SelfiePro. It is a thin and removable battery. The battery backup is decent because the phone’s hardware is not too demanding. A one day battery juice can be extracted out from the phone.
The phone is running on the new Android software, the Android Marshmallow. It supports 4G connectivity at bands 3,5 and TDD band 40. The itel SelfiePro has a SD card slot to increase storage space to a maximum of 64 GB.
The screen can be turned on by double tapping the screen and the phone also supports gesture features like drawing alphabets in order to jump directly to specific apps.
In the box, there is a flip cover, screen guard (present on the display), earphones, usb cable and power adapter.
itel SelfiePro got great looks and design. It also comes with a remarkable display and camera. It is a phone which is clearly aimed at the offline market where phones packing similar specs are priced much higher. Saying that, you have better options available in the online space at a similar price. Do remember to do some homework before making the purchase.
