itel S16 Pro vs itel P33 Plus: Where The S16 Pro Has The Advantage
The S16 Pro boasts a larger 6.5-inch LCD screen with a slightly better resolution than its sibling, making it a joy for users who would prefer a bigger, better display.
It also has more RAM than the P33 Plus, while presenting better storage options (external and internal) than its sibling. Its newer software version also sees it gain some distance over the P33 Plus.
The S16 Pro has more cameras (a triple-rear camera setup) with better-looking numbers than the P33 Plus, but camera comparisons are not as straightforward as they may seem. This simply means that the S16 Pro may not offer a better photography experience than its counterpart.
itel S16 Pro vs itel P33 Plus: Where The P33 Plus Has The Advantage
The P33 Plus brings a bigger battery that lets users enjoy more screen time on this device. It also offers a cheaper option as far as entry-level devices go. In fact, it costs less than the S16 (which is beneath the S16 Pro in terms of specs), making it great for buyers who don’t want to spend above ₦30,000 on an entry-level smartphone.
It is easier to hold in the hand compared to its sibling (due to its smaller size), which also means it should be more convenient to keep in smaller pockets or purses.

We’ve brought the S16 Pro against its older sibling, the P33 Plus, but, when it comes down to making that final decision, which of these smartphones should you go for?
The S16 Pro offers a larger screen size, more RAM, more onboard storage, and brings a newer Android version to the table.
It also brings more rear cameras with supposedly better specs, but this is no clear indicator that it trumps the P33 Plus when it comes to photography. However, the P33 Plus brings a better battery to the fore and is less expensive than its counterpart.
