iTel A47 Price in Nigeria
The price of a47 from iTel in Nigeria is N26,500. Head to Jumia and your favorite offline stores to get the device.
From the perspective of design, is a pretty cool device. By cool, I don’t mean its beauty can be compared to those of mid-range and high-end phones but I mean it is as cool as you’d expect a cool low-end phone to be.
The device comes in two colours: blue and purple. The blue colour should be okay for people who love simple colours, while the purple should be fanciful enough for people who love fancy phones.
In terms of thickness, the phone isn’t terrible.
It is neither slim nor thick. So you wouldn’t have to complain about the device being too thick.
In terms of computing hardware, the A47 features the kind of hardware you’d expect a product of its kind to feature.
But unlike most low-end devices which come with MediaTek chipsets, this phone is powered by the Unisoc Spreadtrum SC7731E chipset.
The chipset is not a very popular chipset, but believe me when I say you have nothing to worry about.
The Unisoc Spreadtrum SC7731E features a total of four cores, with each core having a processing speed of 1.30 GHz.
With four 1.30 GHz cores, you would have no problem with the performance, if you’re not using it for computing-intensive tasks.
While the Unisoc Spreadtrum SC7731E handles the general computing tasks of the phone, a Mali GPU is responsible for the graphics processing tasks.
This GPU in question is the Mali-T820 MP1 GPU. The Mali-T820 MP1 is an hardware that has been seen in a good number of low-end devices. So you don’t have to worry about its performance.
The RAM used by the processor of this phone, is a 2 GB RAM. Usually, 1 GB RAM is what low-end devices feature.
So, with A47 having twice the standard, you can expect the phone to perform a little better than many devices in its category.
Some low-end phones now feature large displays, but the A47 is not one of them. The phone rather comes with a 5.50 inch display.
And since 5.50-inch display is now the standard for low-end phones, we can’t consider iTel to have disappointed in this aspect.
The 5.50-inch display featured by the A47 is an IPS display. There are a lot of products in the category of the A47 which feature TFT displays.
And with this phone having an IPS display, I would say the manufacturer did an impressive job in this aspect.
As regards the pixel density, you also have nothing to worry about. The phone is stated to have a pixel density of about 226 pixels per inch [PPI].
A pixel density of this amount is not as impressive as those of mid-range devices, but still you’d find this pixel density good enough.
Talking about display brightness, the display of this phone is not as bright as some of the best devices out there. But still, using it under a bright sun should be no problem.
Anyone buying a low-end phone this month [or even the rest of this year], shouldn’t expect these phones to come powered by the Android 10 OS.
So the best you should expect from a low-end phone, is the Android 9 OS. And good enough, A47 also meets up with this expectation.
However, understand that the Android 9 powering this phone is not the standard Android 9. The Android 9 OS powering this phone is rather the Go edition of the operating system.
However, it is quite unsure if the OS is a stock Android 9 OS or a custom version of the OS.
Builds of A47 come with 32 GB of internal storage, although, for a phone of it’s kind, a storage of 16 GB is what should ordinarily be featured.
In other words, this device scores excellently in terms of storage.
You should however understand that not all the storage space of the phone would not be available for your own use.
Keep in mind that the phone’s OS, some pre-installed apps, and the files that come with the phone, would need to be stored somewhere.
And some of the phone’s storage are where they would be stored.
The kind of users this phone was designed for, should find 32 GB enough.
However, for the few users of this phone who’d need more storage space, there is room for storage space expansion.
The phone’s storage can be expanded with the help of a micro SD card. But not any kind of micro SD card.
Only micro SD cards not having more than 32 GB can be used. Using something bigger would not only fail to work, it would also affect the phone’s performance negatively.
When buying a phone like A47, I expect you already know phones of its kind are among the kinds you buy, when not necessarily interested in a product for taking amazing pictures.
In other words, if you’re not expecting some amazing cameras from the phone, you shouldn’t end up disappointed.
Taking a look at the device’s cameras, the front side of the phone features a single camera. This camera is a 5 MP camera which is slightly enhanced.
It isn’t one of the best out there, but would take some quite impressive pictures.
As for the rear side of this smart device, there are two cameras. The main rear camera is another 5 MP camera, while the second rear camera is rated at 0.3 MP.
As you would expect, the secondary camera is only meant to support the main one. And thanks to this support from the 0.3 MP camera, pictures taken by the 5 MP camera on the rear side, can be quite more impressive, compared to those taken by the front 5 MP camera.
The iTel A47 is another pretty affordable smartphone considering its capability for its price in Nigeria. The device is a great phone, as long as you understand what kind of phones sell for its price.
I’d also like to state that if you’re the kind who experiences power blackout quite often, then you might love this product even better.
