Itel P51 Full Phone Review

Here’s the Itel P51 full phone review that will help you to determine if this is a good phone whose value is worth the price it has been tagged with.

You’ll find a camera review, display, battery, processor, amongst other notable features that help to determine the level of performance of a smartphone.

Let’s get on with it!


itel P51 MaxPower

The Itel P51 IPS display measures 5.5-inch and it has a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and a pixel density of 267PPI.

This is a screen size that is common with midrange smartphones, and we saw the same on the Infinix Hot 3, 4, and 5 Lite.

But then, this smartphone is considerably cheaper than each of them, which makes it a clear winner in this aspect.

You can, therefore expect that you won’t have a too small or large screen to deal with. If you also prefer a moderately sized phone whose keypad has to not be crammed in, this would be it.

The text and images on this 178º wide viewing angle screen can be said to be sharp, given its high resolution and pixel density on this moderate display size.

Your games will come to live, videos will look appealing, and pictures will have a remarkable quality.

There is no protection screen on this phone with the use of a toughened screen such as a DragonTrail glass or Corning Gorilla glass.

We weren’t expecting it and so it does not add up to its downside.

The screen is not so large and so you should be able to prevent slips and falls that may tend to mar it in the long run.


itel P51 MaxPower

The P51 has a brushed metal body to give it an edge when it comes to durability.

This back cover is made of plastic, but you’ll hardly be able to tell the difference given that it looks like metal from a distance.

This Itel P51′ dimension is 155.50 x 77.5 x 8.9mm which makes it slim enough to give you ease in operating it.

It’ll fit nicely in the palm and feel like less of weight while you’re working on it.

This smartphone is available in colors such as Crystal Gray, Elegant Blue, Streamer Gold, and Mocha Gold and as such, it caters to your needs if you’re a fashion enthusiast.

Pick one that matches with your style and you’ll come to admire it for weeks.


The Itel P51 has a RAM asize of 1GB to aid in multitasking.

This is your ability to launch more than one application at a time and carryout several operations simultaneously.

A RAM of this size will mean a moderate level of performance. It can help you out with the basic features of taking pictures, browsing, playing games, launching news apps; all at the same time.

But there are times you will notice lags and hangs especially if you tend to launch too many apps at the same time.

When it also comes to browsing, opening several tabs especially on the Google Chrome browser will have those tabs reloaded each time you maximize them again.

This is because there’s only so much that this RAM can handle and suscepting it to more will only slow down your level of productivity.

Aside from the RAM, this device also features a 16GB internal memory capacity which can hold your pictures, videos, ebooks, games, apps, and other files.

It is neither too small nor too large, but if you can step it up with a microSD card up to 32GB, then there’s a lot you can get from this smartphone.

For starters, it’ll include more storage space and more entertaining experience.

Lest we forget, these hardware specs are similar to that of the Infinix Hot 3, while the Hot 4 and Hot 5 lite differ only in terms of RAM since theirs is up to 2GB.


The P51 uses a 1.3GHz quad-core Mediatek Mt6580M processor to enable you to interact with this phone.

This is a 64-bit CPU that will allow you to carry out every operation on the phone starting from when you boot it, to setting Google accounts, ringtones and wallpapers, loading apps and games, and several others.

Four cores to handle this task with a good speed means you won’t face any noticeable lag as you work around the phone.

This smartphone also runs of Android version 7.0 Nougat which is one of the latest out there other than the 8.0 Oreo.

Therefore, you stand to get the recent updates that have been loaded into this OS, ranging from memory management and power management features.

The Android user interface is generally known to be easy to use and navigate and as such, if you’ve been using this OS for months or weeks now, then you should have no trouble navigating around the Itel P51.


The camera features of this phone include an 8MP amd 2MP resolution camera at its back and front respectively.

The f/2.0 aperture back camera can offer you images with decent quality, but we can’t say the same about the front camera.

It might be a bit blurry judging from the megapixel, but that notwithstanding, you should be able to still capture pictures and take video calls that are of appreciable quality.

Both cameras have been supported with an LED flash to ensure that you don’t need an extra flashhlight while trying to take pictures when its dark.

Launch the camera app, turn on the flash, and you’re good to go.

Comparing these camera specs with that of the Infinix Hot 3, the resolutions on both cameras are the same. On the other hand, the Hot 4 and Hot 5 Lite feature the same resolution on their back, but their front camera is 5MP.

And that’s where you’re going to pay more to own one of them.

Now, if you’ve ever used the Hot 3, then a similar level of experience is what you’ll get when using this camera.


The most admirable feature of this smartphone is its battery which is a whopping 5,000mAh.

Quite impressive, but we know Itel needed something to get user’s attention given the high level of competiition that is in the market.

What other way to spark the curiosity of people to this phone than to throw in a non-removable battery that is larger than that of its competitors in the same range.

The Hot 3 has a 3000mAh battery, while the Hot 4 and Hot 5 Lite feature a 4,000mAh battery.

Therefore, this battery can provide a longer battery life than either of them given that it works with the same screen size and resolution, but more battery power.

But one can’t finalize this based on the value of the battery, because it can be quite deceiving.

We’ve seen phones with a 4,000mAh battery who could not still deliver a longer life than that with a 3000mAh battery.

This is because asides the capacity, a lot of features have to be put in place to ensure that this battery is used efficiently.

For instance, if the phone tends to overheat, the battery is already a goner.

Now let’s spare you the gory details, we’re impressed with the P51’s large battery capacity.

According to Itel, it can last for up to 3 days after a full charge, hence if their word holds true, then you should be able to use this phone without a need to recharge frequently.

Blast some music, surf the net, play some quality games, and you’ll still have enough juice to save up for when you’ll really need it.


The p51 is a dual SIM smartphone and as such, you don’t have to settle for only one SIM or swap between a memory card before you can use the second SIM slot.

Now let’s answer some user queries that will help to clear your doubts or misconceptions about this phone,

Does itel p51 have a fingerprint? No, it does not! You will have to rely on passwords and patterns to lock its stored data.

Does Itel p51 support OTG? Yes, it does. Therefore, you’ll be able to use it as a power bank to charge other smartphones.

Does Itel p51 support 4G? No, it does not. Network option of this phone is 2G and 3G connectivity

Those aside, other connectivity options of this smartphone include Wifi, Bluetooth, and GPS.

Its sensors are proximity, accelerometer, and light sensor.

Itel P51 Price

The Itel P51 price in Nigeria is between ₦30,000 to ₦45,000 and this is a price that will vary depending on where you buy it and if you settle for a brand new one or a fairly used.

Check Lowest Price on Jumia

In Ghana and Kenya, the price of this phone is around GH₵ 479 and 9,999 KSh respectively.


The Itel P51 specifications and price show that its manufacturer has come far from their first device in 2007.

This is a smartphone that may be in the entry-level segment of the market but isn’t just sitting there as a casual member.

It actually has something the others aren’t offering at the same price and that is a bigger battery.

Call it a marketing strategy or whatever, if it looks big, then that’s all that matters. That’ll give other manufacturers something to think about and maybe release smartphones that are not holding back when it comes to battery power.

Asides the battery, we are happy that this phone maintained an HD resolution to ensure that what you see, is in the best quality.

Now, let us know, will you buy this smartphone?
