Design and Display

Many of us don’t know Itel to be a company that produces devices that awe in design, when you consider prices. But it seems to do better a bit this time, adding some curves to make the Itel S12 more comfortable to hold. Although it looks metallic, the body features plastic.

The Itel S12 has a standard size 5-inch display. The touchscreen has a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels, which serves as a reminder of this one as a budget offering.

Camera and Storage

The main USP of the Itel S12 is obviously the two cameras it loads on the front. The setup features a 5MP and 2MP sensors that look to improve the quality of selfies you take. You supposedly get soft LED flash as well to help brighten things.

As for the primary camera, you get an 8MP unit featuring autofocus, HDR and some other regulars. Onboard storage is rather lowly at 8 GB. But what do you expect from a budget phone? Thankfully, you can add another 32 GB using a microSD card.

Performance and OS

A quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek processor is put in charge of all the heavy lifting. This receives support from measly 1 GB of RAM. It is safe to say not a lot can be expected from the Itel S12 when it comes to performance. You can realistically expect minimal multitasking. Operating system in use is Android 7.0 Nougat.

Other Specs and Features

The Itel S12 packs a 2,400mAh battery, not too bad when you consider the low screen resolution and chip in use. Don’t expect 4G LTE on a smartphone this cheap, but you have 3G connectivity to make do with.

Interestingly, the Itel S12 offers you a fingerprint sensor on its rear for added protection. This, perhaps, covers most of the other shortcomings.

Pricing and Availability

Itel S12 is available in Nigeria, Ghana, and Kenya. You can buy the affordable Android phone at leading online stores in your country. Itel S12 price in Nigeria is ranges from 22,000 Naira to 30,000 Naira.

Price in Ghana should start at around GH₵ 479. Itel S32 Price in Kenya is expected at around 7,999 KSh.
