Design and Display
Itel is one of the few low budget smartphone making companies that still try to incorporate a metallic design in their smartphones. The Itel P31 has brushed metallic body which profers a level of sturdiness to the smartphone. Although not bezel-less, the smartphone has some not too chunky bezels. The back panel houses a bottom speaker grill and a camera with dual LED flash at the top left corner.
The Itel P31 comes with an entry level display which is the FWVGA type. This is quite low resolution, even in a low budget smartphone with a medium sized screen. The 5.0-inch 854 X 480 pixels display is good enough for day to day usage.
Battery and Camera
The pillar of the smartphone is its battery which is a massive 5, 000mAh battery capacity. According to Itel, the smartphone can go for a few days on a single charge provided everything is kept moderate. Itel P31 can also charge your other smartphones as it not just only have a large battery capacity but can also share it
Camera-wise, the Itel P31 does not really have much to offer has it just features only a 5MP camera with flash on the rear side and a 5MP front camera also. Itel phones in general have not been known for their stellar camera, so it is safe not to expect much here.
Hardware and Software
Like the majority of other low budget smartphone, the Itel P31 is powered by a mere Quad-core MediaTek SoC clocking at 1.2GHz together with a below average Mali GPU. Theres not much in terms of internal memory and storage either with a 1GB RAM and 8GB built-in storage. Storage is expandable to 32GB in case you want more space using a MicroSD card. The Itel P31 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow straight from the box.
Pricing and Availability
The Itel P31 is available for sale in various online stores and smartphone retail outlets around for around 23, 000 Naira depending on your location and the deal in play.
