Design and Display: 

The P33, like most other low-end category smartphones, doesn’t feature a very premium visual design. However, for the price range, Crunch Phone considers its design very much ok. 

The 146.7 x 74 x 9.3 mm super slim device comes with a plastic body with noticeable bezels. Its rear features an array of 2 cameras with a flashlight, a centrally placed fingerprint sensor, and Itel branding. 

On the front, we have a single selfie and a flashlight placed on top dominated by a 5.5 inches display.

It should be noted that this device comes with considerable bezels which are very normal when the low price is taken into account. 


Another outstanding feature of the Itel P33 smartphone is the battery. Featuring a 4000 mAh battery along with an AI power master intelligently optimizing your battery usage, the device can support you for about 8 hours of normal use. 


Itel P33 smartphone comes with the main camera that features an array of two 8MP lenses. The front camera department features a single modest 5MP selfie shooter with enough qualities to function well in a well light environment. 

While the cameras aren’t very amazing, we sincerely believe it’s a great value for the price the device goes for.

Processor, Software, and Memory:

Under the hood, the Itel P33 smartphone features a modest 1.3GHz quad-core processor from Mediatek, a Mali-T820 GPU for graphics processing, and a single gigabyte RAM with 16GB storage.
