Verdict

A good choice for people looking for an entry-level smartphone is the itel A70. For basic photographic needs, the handset’s camera performance is satisfactory, and it has a good design and display. But those looking for a long-lasting battery life and a somewhat clean OS experience might need to look elsewhere.

Design and display

The Itel A70 doesn’t feel entry-level, at least to me. The back panel of the phone has a magnetic accent under the glass back for finger gripping and swiping. Unfortunately, the thumb didn’t show up quite as well in the Brilliant Gold color we received for review. Moreover, the box includes a high-quality black TPU case.

The phone, which weighs 187 grams, is easy to hold and its edges provide a good grip. The phone is made of plastic that does not leak or break when pressure is applied. The phone’s rear camera is connected to the separate ring in the upper right corner of the outlet. A different tint around the camera lens adds to the quality of the device. The ‘AWESOME‘ text on the back of the device also attracts attention.

There is a USB Type-C port, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, and a speaker grill at the bottom of the phone. The fingerprint sensor is placed above the power button on the right side and it feels a little snappy when you turn on the device.

The colors seem vivid and bright, and the text is readable on the screen. For the price, the viewing angles and picture quality are quite respectable. Additionally, the display is compatible with the software-backed Dynamic Bar feature, which creates a pill-shaped notch around the front camera to provide quick access to information such as charge completion reminders, low power alerts, and charging animation, among other things.

Cameras

In terms of optics, the A70 has a 13 MP camera on the back and an 8 MP camera on the front. Both cameras are supported by AI and LED flash. The latter is said to help detail in low light, but it often doesn’t dominate images. On the other hand, artificial intelligence analyzes the scene and adds effects to make the video more interesting. For example, if there is a human subject, they will automatically click on the image to be displayed. Speaking of which, portrait photography looks balanced, with slightly rounding the edges of focus and bokeh effects.

General camera solutions for their price. These are easy-to-shoot point-and-shoot cameras that produce color-rich and skin-friendly images. The level of detail, density, and power is low, but this is possible considering the price of the phone. Additionally, the camera’s functionality and shutter speed are a bit slow even in well-lit environments.

Still, the camera performance of the ITEL A70 seems to be better than the Moto G04 phone at the same price. Itel’s smartphone produces sharper, clearer, and higher-quality images than its counterparts.

software and performance

At the heart of the itel A70 is the Unisoc T603 chip, coupled with 4GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage and expandable via microSD card. The RAM can be expanded up to 12GB using the phone’s internal memory. Itel’s AnelTuTu and Geekbench scores are lower than the Moto G04, which is also powered by the Unisoc T603 chipset but comes with 6 GB RAM.

The phone is ideal for basic tasks like communication, browsing, browsing social media, and commuting. You’ll find the phone struggles more than this, just like in COD where even the graphics are a bit shaky. In addition, the temperature of the phone increased from 27 degrees at the beginning of the game to 41.3 degrees within an hour. This shouldn’t be a surprise considering it’s a high-end phone. -Itel A70 Review

Theitel A70 is software-equipped and runs Android 13 out of the box. The app has its own Android interface running on it, changing the visuals of the UI and apps. The phone comes with many pre-installed apps: several from Google and several from Itel, including security, themes, photo storage, file manager, and more. There are also pre-installed Facebook Lite and Jumping Zoo applications that can be removed if desired. Overall the software is easy to use, intuitive, and customizable.

Battery and charging

The 5,000mAh battery that powers the itel A70 lasted 11 hours and 42 minutes in the PCMark test. In comparison to the competitors, who averaged 15 hours, this is on the lower end. The battery life of the phone dropped by 7% when we played YouTube videos at the highest resolution supported and at 50% brightness and volume levels. -Itel A70 Review

The phone should last at least a day between charges because it won’t be used for strenuous activities. This is advantageous because the smartphone can’t charge quickly. The 10W converter that is included with the itel A70 takes more than 2.5 hours to fully charge the gadget from empty.

Final verdict

There aren’t many competitors for the Intel A70, at least not at its beginning price. Its 128GB storage version, however, faces competition from the Moto G04, which offers a nearly Android experience in addition to higher AnTuTu and Geekbench ratings. On the downside, the inbuilt storage is limited to 64GB. The Moto phone is also available with 128GB of storage, but it costs Rs 7,999 more.
