iTel A62: Design

For a budget-friendly smartphone, the A62 has a strong build quality design that matches its price tag. Although it doesn’t have a metallic or glass build that’s on recent smartphones, but the integrated laminated plastic rear of the phone gave it quality and rich style look. The iTel A62 comes in Black, Champagne, and Red color options.

The smooth edges of the phone are curvy and paves way for easy handling and better one-hand grip. Because of the plastic rear panel, the phone weighs less, making it a top choice for those who want a budget device that won’t add weight to their bulk of loads. There are also dual-curved antenna lines on the rear of the phone which is similar to that of those on older iPhones.

Unlike side-mounted slots that are on current smartphones, the iTel A62 dual SIM cards and microSD card are placed beneath the phone’s panel, making you remove the rear cover before accessing them. The two rear cameras ars well vertically positioned with the LED flash sitting in between them. The fingerprint sensor is placed at the rear right behind the dual cameras and it has a quick response time, unlike other all smartphones.

The top edge of the A62 sports a 3.5mm headphone jack while the bottom features dual speaker grills and a USB port. The power button and the volume rockers are well positioned on the side angle and they’re very easy to reach with one hand.

iTel A62: Display

On the display side, the iTel A62 has an average body size that’s neither too big nor small. The phone sports an ideal display size of 5.65-inches IPS LCD which shows at full HD. The screen display works at a screen resolution of 720×1440 pixels, along with an aspect ratio of 18:9 which helps in providing a wider viewing experience.

The iTel A62 display color reproduction is superb and vivid that you can never imagine that kind of color reproduction on a mid-range smartphone. The phone’s screen also adjusts its brightness automatically, making it very usable under sunlight, though you’ll have to adjust it manually depending on your preference.

iTel A62: Camera Review

The iTel A62 offers a vivid and clear camera quality which includes a 13-MP + VGA rear camera lens, along with a 5-MP selfie camera. Images captured by iTel A62 dual cameras during daylights are bright, clear, and well detailed. With the assistance of low light mode, the A62 dual camera delivers stunning low light photos but it’s nothing when compared to daylight shots.

Unfortunately, you’ll experience graining while zooming in at night, and the phone takes time to focus, so you have to keep your hands firm and keep the phone steady. Just like other iTel mid-range smartphones, you can also shoot 1080p videos @30fps with iTel A62 dual cameras.

Upfront, the 5-MP selfie camera delivers stunning selfie photos when compared to other phones of this price segment. Selfies taken in daylight are super bright and clear. There’s also a beauty mode that makes your selfie look stunning and great.

iTel A62: Hardware Performance, Software, and Battery Capacity

The latest iTel A62 on board ships in a MediaTek MT6739 processor which is good when it comes to basic phone performances. One thing we like about the A62 processor is that it doesn’t heat up frequently after long usage contrary to other smartphones of this range.

The iTel A62 has a 2GB RAM size which is paired with the mid-range processor to deliver stunning performance. While using the phone to run RAM hungry apps, we do experience some lags in the functioning process, and some apps take time to load. When it comes to gaming performance, the phone supports and runs average games smoothly, but won’t play at all on high-end games like PUBG or Asphalt 9. The iTel A62 comes with a decent storage size of 16GB which won’t be enough to store numerous apps or files. However, you can insert up to 128GB SDcard through the external memory slot if you want to further increase the phone’s inbuilt storage space.

The iTel A62 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo, though not the latest OS but managed to impress us with its amazing customizable features.

The new iTel A62 is powered by a non-removable 3000mAh battery. As revealed by iTel, the phone’s battery can last up to 24h on average usage. Although there’s no fast charging support, you can fully power the device within 3h of constant charge. Unfortunately, you’ll find the device hitting up when charging, or after long hours of heavy use.

iTel A62: Price in Nigeria and Availability

The iTel A62 has some interesting features and values we didn’t expect from a smartphone of this price segment. However, you can get one of the iTel A62 at a retail price of ₦30,000 ($78), at any leading store or slot in Nigeria.
