Itel S42 review summary

Itel is a strong player in the Indian feature phone segment, and is hoping to break into the budget smartphone space with its offline-only retail strategy. The Itel S42 offers quite a few premium features and specifications, and looks pretty good. Buyers might be tempted by the 3GB of RAM, 18:9 HD+ screen, selfie flash, up-to-date Android security patches, and dedicated dual-Nano-SIM plus microSD card slots. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor is relatively weak, but you'll be able to get through all your day-to-day tasks without much trouble. The Itel S42 also boasts of face recognition but it isn't very secure and we were able to unlock this phone with half our face covered. Overall, this phone offers good value for money, but some people might overlook it because it won't appear in searches on e-commerce sites. Read detailed Itel S42 review

Worst mobile ever!!
By Kanishka kanan | 21 Feb 2019 | 21 Feb 2019
Never ever buy this product. This is the worst mobile i ever used. I will give 0 stars. Its even below a million zeroes. Battery life is very low. Every single problem occurs like hanging,fast battery draining,stitch off on even 32% and sometimes never charges even it is plugged in. Dont buy this mobile.
