Below, we will review this budget smartphone in detailed to help you make an informed decision. Now, without further ado, let’s get stated.
Design & Display
The Itel A60s not only gets the job done but also has a great design. It comes in a plastic body with a removable back cover, which allows access to the removable battery, SIM card slots, and microSD card slot. The phone is compact and comfortable to hold, making it suitable for one-handed use. The build quality is not that impressive but it is understandable considering its price.
The phone features a massive 6.6-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 720 x 1612 pixels. Colors as well as outdoor visibility are quite impressive considering its price point.
Itel A60s Performance
The Itel A60s is powered by a Unisoc SC9863A1 (28nm) processor and comes with 4GB of RAM which is capable of handling basic tasks like calls, messaging, and light web browsing. However, the phone struggles when multitasking and running heavy applications. It runs on Android 12 which is optimized for entry-level devices and it is quite impressive.
The A60s sports an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera. The image quality is okay, especially in well-lit conditions. Video recording is 720p, which is also quite impressive.
One of the outstanding features of the Itel A60s is its battery life. It is one area where the device outperforms its competitors in the same price range. It is equipped with a 5000mAh removable battery, the phone can last a full day with moderate use. If you’re a light user, you might even squeeze out more.
Itel A60s Storage
The Itel A60s comes with 64GB of internal storage, which can be expanded with a microSD card. Given that the system and pre-installed apps take up a significant portion of the storage, you’ll need to invest in a microSD card if you plan to store a substantial amount of data or apps.
Connectivity and Features
This phone supports 3G networks, which is quite limiting in today’s age where 4G is widely available. It has basic connectivity options like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Unfortunately, it lacks a fingerprint sensor, and the facial recognition feature is quite basic.
Final Thoughts- Itel A60s, the best entry level smartphone in Kenya
The Itel A60s is a budget-friendly smartphone that offers basic functionality. It’s a suitable device for someone who needs a phone for calls, texts, and occasional web browsing but doesn’t demand much from their smartphone.
