On the 25th of March 2019, Itel Mobile launched two low-end smartphones, itel P33 and P33 Plus for budget-oriented customers. Both devices could be everything you are looking for if you don't have enough money to spend. The device tagged my power my hero because of it's massive battery capacity.

It is very exciting that the itel P33 and itel P33 Plus is coming at very affordable prices. This new device boasts a better ROM size and a better performance than its predecessor - itel P32. We have got some details about the device, so let's find out more.

  • Battery: 4000mAh | 5000mAh battery capacity
Itel P33 and P33 - Design and Display

The device has good display size, but unfortunately, the notch design we have been seen in 2019 smartphones is missing here. But, considering the price, that is not an issue. The P33 boasts a 5.5-inch display size while the P33 Plus has a large display size of 6.0 for a bigger view that is perfect for gaming and video streaming.


The body of the devices is made with plastic material, considering that it is a low-end smartphone, itel, designed them to meet the users choice of color, coming three different colors - Champagne Gold, Black, and Blue. Also, the P33 and P33 Plus offers you amazingly vivid colours that make a great fashion statement.

Furthermore, at the back are the double horizontal camera with a LED light under the camera, a fingerprint scanner at the center. At the side is a power on and off button and volume up and down. The design is very sleek and fits perfectly in hand. The device has a slim body with curved edges.

Itel P33 and P33 Plus - Performance, Storage and Camera

A device with a low performance is one of the worst experience you would never wish and that is why itel has packed the device with a Mediatek MT6580, Quad-Core 1.3GHz processor to aid a better performance. A 1GB of Ram size is onboard on both the P33 and P33 Plus to ensure that the device remains in a good performance even under heavy usage.

Mediatek may be quite disappointing considering the quality and large Ram size that we have seen in many of the 2019 smartphones but considering the price, I don't see anything wrong with them. And the performance is further enhanced with the Android 8.1 OS found in both devices.

The P33 and P33 Plus can comfortably multitask with gaming, videos streaming and internet browsing without breaking a sweat but I won't advise you to overwork the device.

As for the storage, there is a 16GB inbuilt storage, that may not be enough for some person. The good news is that there is a MicroSD expansion slot that allows you to expand the storage up to 32GB giving you more rooms to store your important files.


For photo lovers, the P33 and P33 Plus has a dual 8MP camera at the back to bring you quality photos with a LED light that helps take more clearer photos even in night time. While, at the front, the P33 has a 5MP front-facing selfie camera. The P33 Plus has a better selfie camera of 8MP for better selfies. Both have a front LED light for taking selfies even in dim light.

Itel P33 and P33 Plus - Battery and Other Features

Itel understands that long-lasting battery is one of the selling points of smartphones in Nigeria. So, the company has packed the P33 with a 4000mAh Battery capacity and the P33 Plus with a 5000mAh Battery capacity that allows you to use the device at least a whole day with boarding of continuous charge.


In addition to the large battery capacity, the is no fast charge support for the device, meaning that you would have to be patient for your smartphone to get to %100 while charging.

Been a low-end did not stop itel to pack the device with some amazing features, there is a fingerprint scanner present in both device and a face lock. While, the connectivity options include WIFI, Hotspot, USB, 3G, and Bluetooth support. Although, 4G LTE is missing.

Itel P33 and P33 Plus - Difference and Similarities

There are some notable difference and similarities between the P33 and P33 Plus.

The similarities include a 1GB Ram, 16GB internal storage, dual 8MP back camera, and they both run on the same processor and powered with the same Android 8.1 operating system. They both have a fingerprint scanner at the back and support the facial lock, supports only 3G Network.


While in terms of the difference, the P33 Plus has a bigger display size of 6.0 inch and the P33 has a 5.2-inch, P33 Plus has a 5000mAh battery as compared to the 4000mAh found in the P33. There is also a difference in the selfie, 8MP front-facing camera is found on the P33 Plus while the P33 has a 5MP selfie.

Itel P33 and P33 Plus - Price and Availablity

Currently, the devices are available for order from Online shops and it is also available offline. Considering that the P33 Plus has improved features compared to the P33, it is more priced. The devices were launched with a price tag of N24,000 for the P33 and N26,300 for the P33 Plus.

I will also add that the price may also differ depending on where you are buying the device.

Itel P33 and P33 Plus - Pros
  • Very affordable price
  • Supports face lock and fingerprint scanner - which means that the device is security conscious
  • Dual back camera for better camera both day and night
  • Large battery capacity that can last a whole day and will not require regular charging
  • Beautiful and nice display size
Itel P33 and P33 Plus - Cons
  • No 4G LTE - This is better than 3G in terms of download speed
  • At least one of the variants should have included a 4G LTE
  • Also, one of the should come with 2GB Ram
In summary, considering that the device is low-end, I am not disappointed with it features and specifications. I just wished the Plus version has at least 2GB of Ram and support 4G LTE to make the difference stand out.

Assuming you are one of those wanting to change your smartphone this 2019 and you are kinda confused on which one to buy, then this list will help you alot. It will guide you to make a good or informed decision that will help you pick a device that you will enjoy.

The aim of getdtips is to help people make a good decision when looking for a smartphone to buy. In this article, we considered the smartphones that made it into this list based on quality, features, and price (devices that are not heavily priced with also powerful features).

Before this, I have written about smartphones with the longest lasting battery capacity in 2019, in case battery quality is what you want. I have also written about smartphones you can buy under 50000 naira, in case you have a specific budget that is less than 50k to spend. So you can check them out.

However, in 2019, we have seen many new devices with some many powerful spec and features which could be very confusing to someone that is not a phone geek. So, here is a list of Best 10 Smartphones You Can Buy in 2019 here in Nigeria.

1. Gionee S8s
The first on the list is Gionee's first 2019 smartphone - Gionee S8s. This is a midrange smartphone with an affordable/cheap price tag. This device could be your choice if you like Gionee products but don't have much money to spend.

The device follows the 2019 design trend, featuring a full Notch view display and runs on the latest Android Pie OS to offer the kind of performance user crave for. This device is perfect for multitasking without any nagging or slowing down even under heavy usage. The specification summary includes;

  • 4G LTE

  • 3000mAh Battery Capacity
  • Fingerprint reader

It has a dual quality back camera with a large Ram size, you also do not have much to worry about the storage space, But, I must say that we are not quite impressed with the battery capacity. However, considering the price, I think it's a good device to own. Currently priced at ₦ 47,498 on Jumia.

2. Huawei Y7 Prime 2019
I am so in love with the design of this phone. The Huawei Y7 Prime 2019 was released in January 2019 and the smartphone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor and Qualcomm Adreno 506 GPU that enhances the phone performance and makes it powerful for gaming and online streaming.

The device is a good device when it comes to multitasking and can last a whole under heavy usage because of its 4000mAh battery capacity. And if you enjoy watching YouTube, Netflix or Amazon Prime, the screen is big enough that you would not want to sit in front of your laptop or PC always. The specification of the Y7 Prime 2019 includes;
  • 4G LTE
  • Dual Micro SIM
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • 6.26 in (inches) Touchscreen Display
  • Android 8.1
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor and Qualcomm Adreno 506 GPU

  • 4000mAh Battery Capacity
  • Fingerprint reader
I dread this device a lot though it could be a bit expensive for some person. The device was recently available for pre-order on Jumia with up to 20,000 Naira off the deal. Currently, the device is available for order in Nigeria at a price of 76,000 Naira on Jumia Nigeria.

3. Infinix Hot 7
This is Infinix first 2019 smartphone. But you have to be careful because the device comes in two variants - Infinix Hot 7 and Infinix Hot 7 Pro. The Pro featuring a 2GB Ram and dual 13MP and 2MP back camera while the other featuring a 1GB Ram and a single 13MP back camera. The both have different prices depending on your choice the Pro is more expensive.

The Hot 7 follows the Notch design trend with a large screen display, this is a good choice for those who like to stream online videos and gaming. Here are the specification summary;
  • 4G LTE
  • Dual Nano SIM
  • 6.2-inch IPS LCD Capacitive touchscreen 
  • 720 x 1500 pixels HD resolution

Actually, no much difference between both device. Aside from the Ram size, camera and inbuilt memory every other feature remains the same. But you still have to look carefully to know which one you are actually paying for.

Oppo F11 Pro - Specification, Price, Pros and Cons

After OPPO has solved its notch design problem, there has been an expectation for more interesting innovations and yet affordable device from the global smartphone maker. With the launch of its latest smartphone, the OPPO F11 Pro it seems like our expectation is already here.

The phone comes with an amazing feature and design, and not only does it incorporate a rising front camera mechanism, but it also substituted the notch for an edge-to-edge screen and a VOOC charging for an affordable price. The device is available in two variants, a 4GB and 6GB Ram priced differently.

At a time where smartphone innovation is at an all-time high, the OPPO F11 Pro tries to stands out from the crowd. The device which is currently aimed at the Indian market is an instant eye-catcher. It's not about selfies anymore. But the selfie is quite impressive, there also many other impressive features that come with the device.

First, let's take a look at the specification of the OPPO F11 Pro.

OPPO F11 Pro - Specification Summary
  • Network: 2G/3G/4G LTE
  • SIM Type: Dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by)
  • Display: 6.53 inches LTPS IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen

  • Front-facing camera: 16 MP, f/2.0, display flash
  • Battery type: Integrated 4000mAh
  • Weight: 190 g (6.70 oz)
OPPO F11 Pro - Design and Display

One can easily believe that the OPPO F11 Pro is expensive because of its amazing looking design. It is poetic how the 6.5-inch screen of the phone achieves a 90.90% screen-to-body ratio. The phone is designed with an LCD panel with a Full HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. This display is free from bothersome obstructions as the selfie camera is neatly packaged into a rising unit at the top of the phone

The F11 Pro has either triple-color or dual-color gradient depending on which model you opt for - Thunder Black of Aurora Green. The large 6.53" display is free of any cutouts and with the bare minimum of bezels. While the initial OPPO F11 itself has a waterdrop-like notch, this Pro model is all about the full-screen experience, and that's why Oppo has moved the selfie camera onto a motorized pop-up.


A pop-up selfie camera is no longer new, it is a familiar concept as seen Vivo. Also, the screen is not truly bezel-less. Even, none on the market is. This allowed OPPO to fit in the earpiece on the top bezel. And the one on the F11 Pro is super thin and long.

The device, however, has just one loudspeaker, and it's at the bottom. The top part of the frame has a noise-canceling mic and the ambient light sensor. There are two proximity sensors on the Oppo F11 Pro, but we can't really tell where - probably behind the screen.

At the back is a vertically stacked 48MP+5MP dual-camera setup is centrally placed at the rear and is perfectly aligned with the rising selfie camera unit. A fingerprint scanner sits just underneath the cameras in a position that is ideal for easy access. All this contributes to a gorgeous looking handset that exudes a sense of symmetry that is absent from many other phones

OPPO F11 Pro - Performance, Storage and Camera

With the OPPO F11 Pro, you get a MediaTek Helio P70 chipset running on the hood. This chipset has already proven to be very popular in the mid-range smartphone segment, and OPPO has taken it a step further with all the under-the-hood optimizations it has invested in for the F11 Pro.

The Helio P70 CPU has an octa-core processor with 4x A73 cores at 2.1GHz and 4x A53 cores are running at 2.0GHz. This means that you can expect nothing less than a high-performance quartet that is just 100MHz higher than same on the Oppo F9 Pro and its P60 chip. The OPPO hasn't changed the GPU since the P60.

The most obvious of these is the redesigned UI with the brand’s latest ColorOS 6.0. This F11 Pro is the first Oppo smartphone we have seen running on the latest Color OS 6, the ROM is based on Android 9 Pie and features a lot of improvements with more discreet optimizations for good user experience and smooth performance while gaming and multitasking with the device.

And for the storage, the device has an internal 128GB for the 6GB Ram version and 64GB internal storage for the 4GB version. The storage can further be expanded using a microSD card up to 256GB allowing you to save more files. However, you can online use either the dual SIM without a MicroSD card or a single SIm and a MicroSD card. The choice is yours.

The camera of the F11 Pro is the most enticing feature. The primary configuration at the back of the device is comprised of a 48MP+5MP imaging setup. To make impressive low light portrait photography possible, this camera offers an impressive f/1.79 aperture and a 6P lens setup to capture more light.

Furthermore, the camera can even be adjusted to take 12MP shots using a 4-in-1 pixel binning method to achieve better details, especially in dim lighting. Also, OPPO brings you Ultra Night Mode that combines the benefits of an integrated AI Engine and Ultra-Clear Engine to capture crisp photographs. This mode essentially allows for a long exposure shot with optimizations for image stabilization, multi-frame noise reduction, skin brightness and more.


The OPPO F11 Pro's secret weapon here is its ‘Pixel-grade Color-mapping algorithm’ that is capable of restoring and enhancing brightness and colors. This mode also makes use of a noise reduction system so that you get just as good results in low-light. These AI-based enhancements on the rear camera of the F11 Pro also make scene recognition possible. A total of 23 scenes can be recognized by the phone’s camera to allow automatic optimizations to the image after it is taken.

And coming to the F11 Pro’s selfie camera, it has a 16MP lens hidden in the rising mechanism at the top of the device. A lot of the same AI-based enhancements found on the phone’s rear camera is also used here to make sure optimal image quality. With that said, the average selfie enthusiast is more concerned with beatification options, and the F11 Pro has those in spades

OPPO F11 Pro - Battery and Other Features

A long-lasting battery is what buyers crave for. Besides, what’s the point of a smartphone with powerful features with a poor battery that can't even last a whole a day at least? Well, the massive 4000mAh battery of the OPPO F11 Pro ensures its user will not have much to worry about the device running low every now and then.

Also, it offers Oppo's own solution called VOOC Flash Charging that requires using the bundled 20W charger and a proprietary microUSB cable, which can be limiting. At least, it offers great speeds. The 20W adapter can bring the Oppo F11 Pro battery from 0% to about 40% in around 30 minutes, which is quite rapid. It takes about 85mins for a full charge.

The OPPO F11 Pro is a dual-SIM smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM cards. Connectivity options on the device include Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G, and 4G, while the sensors on the phone include an accelerometer, proximity sensor, and fingerprint sensor.

OPPO F11 Pro - Price and Availablity

The phone is currently available for order both offline and online. For the price, it costs INR 24,990 in India, the OPPO F11 Pro is currently not available in Nigeria and it went on sale in India starting from 15th March and will move to other parts of the world later.

OPPO F11 Pro - Pros
  • Captivating design and you can't really tell if it's plastic or glass
  • Full widescreen with superb contrast
  • 4G LTE support for fast internet downloading as compared to 3G
  • Large battery capacity with super fast charging support
  • Excellent camera quality for a photo enthusiast
OPPO F11 Pro - Cons
  • Notchless design
  • No 4K video recording (available via third-party apps though)
  • No MicroUSB NFC reader
No doubt, OPPO is not a popular brand in Nigeria but it is definitely a good phone. In terms of performance, the device offers a good performance powered with a powerful core processor and up to 6GB to ensure no nagging or slowing down under any heavy usage.

And if you crave for a quality camera, the device comes with an amazing camera. However, it is needless to say that this device fulfills all expectations of the users. But, if the budget is not the issue here, then it is a good device to purchase.

Nokia 9 Pure View - Design and Display

The Nokia 9 Pure View offers the viewing experience you deserve, it features a 5.99” edge-to-edge pOLED QHD display with 2K resolution. With PureDisplay technology, you’ll experience accurate colors and improved sunlight readability.

The Multi-touch pOLED QHD display is equipped with Corning Gorilla Glass 5 screen protection for better durability. The device is water resistant (IP68) and dust-proof, which makes a suitable company for your next adventurous trip. The Nokia 9 is only available in a colour called Midnight Blue


The design is very sleek and beautiful for handheld, at the back of the device is the 5 back camera (which we think is the main selling point of the device), Nokia had designed the smartphone to have an in-display fingerprint scanner and a bright and colorful p-OLED screen. At the bottom of the phone are a USB-C port, in-call mic, and loudspeaker.

Just like most of the popular phones coming with notch design, the company did not adopt the notch on its latest smartphone, but we saw it on Nokia 8.1.

The Nokia 9 is certainly an attractive smartphone. There's no curve in the display's Gorilla Glass 5, but there is a beveled edge around the aluminum frame, which is made out of 6000 series aluminum. The exposed aluminum contrasts very well with the frame's semi-gloss finish.

Nokia 9 Pure View - Performance, Storage and Camera

No arguments, the Nokia 9 is powered by last year's Qualcomm Snapdragon 845. As a matter of fact, every image shot with this device uses information from all five cameras.

The smartphone is powered by two Kryo 385 quad-core processors having 2.8GHz and 1.8GHz clock speed. Those are seated on Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 MSM8998 chipset. Furthermore, the Adreno 630 graphics facilitates excellent gaming experience, while the 6GB RAM promises sufficient programmes to perform without nagging or hanging.

However, the performance is further enhanced with Android 9 Pie. The Android 9 Pie tailors a user experience that just gets better with time making the device an amazing device for gaming, streaming of videos and multitasking without issues of hanging or slowing down.

As for the storage, it comes 128GB of internal storage with no microSD card expansion. And unfortunately, it appears that this will be the only memory variant that will be available. On like the trend we have been seeing in 2019. However, with the 128GB, we believe you still won't run out of storage frequently.

Again, the Nokia 9 Pure View's camera is the most exciting part of the device. The five camera setup is aimed at photography enthusiasts. And this phone is made perfectly for those who like to tune their RAW photos in post processing - like opening up shadows, bringing back highlights, and applying just the right amount of sharpening.

All the cameras lenses have the same fixed focal length of 28mm. This camera doesn't have a wide angle camera, it doesn't have telephoto cameras, and it doesn't have any fancy shooting modes. Instead, all five cameras are 12MP each and have f/1.8 aperture lenses: two of the cameras are RGB and the other three are monochrome.

The images from all five (sometimes even a few photos per camera) are all stacked to produce a single image with a spectacular dynamic range - up to 12.4 stops of difference in a light which is as much as a real large sensor camera. Aside from letting 2.8x more light in due to the lack of a Bayer filter, the job of the B&W sensors is also to allow for a true monochromatic shooting mode rather than a mere desaturation of already color images.


The Nokia also has a front-facing 20MP F/1.8 camera. It supports Tetracell pixel binning so in low light situations, it can combine four adjacent pixels into one producing 5MP images.

Nokia 9 Pure View - Battery and Other Features

The device has an integrated 3320 mAh battery capacity, that is not as massive as expected. But, Nokia uses an AI Technology that helps the battery Last longer from charge to charge with the Adaptive Battery. The Nokia 9 Pure View is Wireless charging enabled and USB Type-C for fast charge.

The Nokia is a Single-SIM  (Nano-SIM) or Hybrid Dual SIM smartphone. Connectivity options on the device include Wi-Fi, GPS, USB Type-C, 3G, and 4G, Hotspot etc. While the sensors on the phone include In-screen fingerprint sensor, ALS/PS, G-sensor, E-compass, Gyro, Hall sensor, Barometer, Haptic vibrator.

Nokia 9 Pure View - Price and Availablity

The Nokia 9 PureView is launched in the US in early March while Europe is expected to wait until April. Well, the wait will be shorter than expected. Several stores will ship the 5-camera flagship in mid-March and in one case the price is lower than the official cost over at Nokia.com (which still shows April shipping dates).

However, the Nokia 9 will cost $600 in the US and in the UK it's £550 for the phone and you get a pair of Nokia True Wireless Earbuds.
