Basic Specifications

It1518 is not a premium phone by price, but it looks good as compared to other phones under Rs. 8000. It has an 8MP rear camera & 5MP front camera. 1.3GHz MediaTek quad-core processor paired up with 2GB of RAM & 8GB internal memory (expandable up to 128GB). It1518 operates on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with 2500 mAh battery.

Design, Built and Display

The it1518 is very light in weight compared to many other devices which are, of course, metal body device. However, we like the texture of  it1518 back panel which is rare to find in phones. The device comes with the 5 inches, 1280 x 720 pixels’ screen. The images and videos look vibrant on this display.

Performance and Camera

Moving on from the screen & built, itel it1518 has a front camera with flash, rear camera of it1518 is 8MP and 5MP front shooter. This device comes under the selfie pro series of itel earlier they have launched it1520 which have 13MP front and back camera along with the IRIS scanner which was unique in the category.  This device fibbed with 1.3GHz MediaTek quad-core processor CPU. For the better efficiency phone has the 2GB of Ram and 8 GB of internal storage. The memory is expandable with the help of a microSD card and the slot of the micro SD card if separate from the narrow slot so one can use both the sim along with the memory card.



The call quality on the itel it1518 is decent. We used Reliance Jio 4G SIM card, and this device did a good job from the internet to calls. We also like the selfie flash feature which is not there in many phones. In the natural light, the camera works very well and clicks a quality picture.  The phone’s speaker quality and battery performance are sufficiently good. In short, if you are planning to buy a 4G device under Rs. 8,000, itel it1518 is certainly a good bet.
