MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict

For the ₦18,000 price tag, we were expecting to see 8GB internal storage. We certainly were not expecting to see a fingerprint reader, but itel Mobile has squeezed one in. This is probably the cheapest phone with a fingerprint scanner in the market.

Our Buyer’s Guide Verdict is a recommendation that we make based on our evaluation of the specs of the device. It is a general guide designed to help you understand how much value a smartphone offers for its price. It is not a stamp of quality assessment or an endorsement of the device or of the manufacturers. Be sure to ask questions and use your judgement when buying any device, as MobilityArena may not be held responsible for your buying decisions.
