Transsion Holdings owns and operates a portfolio of smartphone and accessory brands including Itel, Tecno, Infinix, Spice, and Oraimo. Each one has its own unique positioning and target audience, but the company uses them collectively to cover emerging markets. Itel is an offline-only brand aimed at urban customers as well as people in emerging towns and cities, which is why people might not have seen much of it when searching for deals online, even though it's already the second biggest player in India's feature phone market.

Itel S42 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.

  • Worst mobile ever!!
    Kanishka kanan (Feb 21, 2019) on Gadgets 360
    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.
