Selfie focused Android Budget Phone – The Itel S13 Review and Price in Kenya

A few years back, it was almost impossible to imagine there would once be a budget centric smart phone posing a whole 13Megapixels front camera. Double digit megapixel cameras were only left for serious flagship handsets on their rear sides. Well those days are over now; for just Kenya Shillings 7,500, you can own the new Itel S13 budget device and take those selfies as many as you’d want at a reasonable resolution. Call it value for money, or just a selfie phone; the Itel S13 will simply take selfies like no other in its category.

I’m curious as to whether this phone deservedly gets its name from the selfie camera – 13MP, or it’s just a normal naming structure that guys at itel figured would go down well with the device, but I’m certain it has some pretty obvious resemblance to the camera. By no means do we expect better stuff than the likes of galaxies or iPhones, but if you have a limited budget and would unequivocally compromise on the front selfie camera, the Itel S13 is for you.

The design is average as expected and borrows/imitates flagship devices in some ways but cuts down on materials, mostly uses plastic to keep it affordable – I imagine. And runs on the latest Android Oreo™ (Go edition). The screen size falls under fablet category, mostly associated with pricier smartphones; however, it comes with a meager 480pixels screen resolution that leaves the screen grainy.

Below are some key specs of the Itel S13;

  • Operating System:Android 8.1 Oreo
  • Display Size: 5-inch
  • Screen Resolution: 960 x 480 pixels
  • Processor Speed: 3GHz Quad-core
  • RAM:1GB
  • Internal Storage: 8GB
  • Rear Camera: 5MP + 5MP
  • Selfie Camera: 13MP
  • Battery: 2400mAh
