Another budget-friendly smartphone enters the Philippines market: the itel P33 Plus. The P33 Plus is itel Mobile’s latest addition to its Power series smartphones, which bring long-lasting battery power to last you for days of gaming, connectivity, and productivity.
With an affordable price of P3,499, the P33 Plus is available in authorized stores and stalls nationwide, as well as on itel’s official Lazada Flagship Store.
Let’s take a closer look at the features and functions the itel P33 Plus has to offer:
Design & Construction
Available in Champagne Gold, Deep Blue, and Gradation Blue, the P33 Plus sports a huge form factor at 158.7mm height, 74mm width, and 9.3mm thickness. There’s also quite heft in this 133g phone despite the plastic build.
The P33 Plus sports thick bezels. The top bezel houses the front camera, speaker, and the LED flash. At the back, you’ll see the dual rear cameras with the LED flash below them at the upper left corner. A circular fingerprint sensor sits at the center of the rear portion. This handset comes with a removable back cover. Opening the rear reveals the battery and the microSD and dual SIM slots.
All the buttons–volume rocker and power key–are placed on the right side of the device. Meanwhile, the 3.5mm jack can be found on top, while the microUSB charging port are located at the bottom of the phone.
Display & Multimedia
Up front, a large 6-inch IPS FullScreen display greets you when you power up this phone and gives you much room to do your tasks, watch content, and play games. The screen has an HD+ (1440 x 720) resolution, a reasonable pick given the smartphone’s price point, and uses scratch-resistant glass.
The itel P33 Plus already comes with dual rear camera system, with the main sensor at 8MP, to take care of your photography needs. For selfies, the 8MP front camera with 4-in-1 big pixel technology and LED flash should suffice.
To up your shooting game, the P33 Plus also comes with Portrait Mode for artistic portraits with beautiful bokeh effects. Meanwhile, the Face Beauty V2.0 improves the subject’s face, making it look slimmer and smoother.
The highlight feature of the itel P33 Plus is its whopping 5000mAh battery. Based on tests made by itel, the battery offers up to 100 hours of normal use, up to 39 hours with continual 3G phone call, and almost 685 hours on standby. Additionally, this device comes with AI Power Master feature to smartly manage power consumption and maximize battery use. There’s also the power saving mode, which adjusts automatically the phone’s performance, particularly the WLAN, Bluetooth, data, display brightness, and apps.
Under the hood, you get a 16GB built-in storage, still expandable up to 32GB via microSD, and 1GB of RAM. This itel phone runs on Android 8 Oreo (Go edition), which is optimized to work on low RAM devices, with a few pre-installed apps. A 1.3GHz quad-core processor powers the P33 Plus.
Some bonus feature for this budget smartphone are the addition of face unlock and fingerprint sensor for your device’s security. The staple connectivity options such as Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, and GPS are also available.
