At itel’s 10th year anniversary event, we had the opportunity to spend some time with the S12 and S32. We were particularly interested in seeing the 2017 flagship of the brand, itel S32, for ourselves. And we did. We got a few photos too. I hope you enjoy our itel S32 hands-on review. Do read on for the details.
itel S32 hands-on review
itel S32 has a 5.5-inch display. The display is a ground breaker for itel though. It has 2.5D curved glass, and once we held it in our hands, we could feel the difference. The display is smooth and nice, plus the rear of the device has a brushed metal look and feel to it.
What itel has done with the S32 is add a more premium feel than we have ever seen on any other itel smartphone.
The S32 has 16 GB internal storage. We were unable to determine what processor it runs, but RAM is 1 GB. The LTE version (itel S32 LTE) has 2 GB RAM. We were unable to get our hands on that model though.
There is a fingerprint sensor located on the back of the phone, significantly below the section where the rear 8 megapixel camera and LED flash are. Good placement.
Exploring the dual selfie camera, experienced how the user can switch between three different modes to capture a variety of selfies, include 120 degrees wide angle shots. We were told that the dual selfie cameras also allow you to pick a focus point on your photographs, so you can produce professional grade photos. We look forward to putting that to test in a full review. The selfie camera has LED soft flash to assist in low light settings.
The S32 is equipped with a 3,000 mAh battery, an improvement over its predecessor, itel S31, which has a 2400 mAh unit. In terms of software, itel S32 runs Android 7 Nougat.

We immediately liked the S32. A big screen, a promising dual selfie camera, 8 megapixel rear camera, good battery and optional 4G LTE support for $90 (N33,000) to $118 (N45,000) sounds good for itel’s 2017 flagship. It looks like a good upgrade to last year’s flagship, itel S31.
