User Reviews and Opinions


  1. Why can’t they upgrade their camera for Christ sake same or lower camera all. The time, I’m beginning to lose interest in this itel honestly.

    1. It hasn’t got to that dear. Besides iTel is trying and need to be commended. Remember they have a target audience: those on budget. Lol!

  2. I used to love itel passionately and still using itel, but I’m beginning to loose interest in itel.
    Why don’t itel build their smartphones with front flash? Why don’t itel upgrade in ram size? Why don’t itel improve in camera quality?

  3. I have not used any iTel smartphone before. But having gone through the specs, I wish to key in on this one. I am earnestly waiting to read the best of reviews on this model from you, @ mr Ekpa. Notify me.

      1. Itel is amazing when they present 5000mah believe it …..what’s left is to upgrade and compete well done guys am with you

  4. Well done my dear itel company,
    This is standard, my p36 pro lite is as far as air, battery lasting like stabilizer, I have been waiting for this 6000mah battery plus 18+watt fast charger, 13mp & bigger screen & finally it’s here…….. Sell it in Nigeria fast I can’t wait…… Itel is the most low cost yet stronger phone I av ever seen on Earth,

    1. Yes o, you are right. Since I have been using Android phones only itel gave me rest of mind especially battery strength. I used itel p51, itel p33, and now am going for this one itel p38 pro

  5. Please has it started retailing in Nigeria yet or when would it start
    And hoping for a full unboxing and review video soonest, thanks.

  6. Itel is a dumb phone and it will continue to be a dumb phone until they upgrade

    Imagine 64gb 2gb ram what nonsense is that?

  7. Please you people should upgrade in all aspects, how can I be using phone that has 2gb ram @ p37 and now want to buy a higher phone that still has the same ram? Who dose that? Itel is a good product I most recommend that ,but we need some upgrades


    1. On point,people lose the concept of a target market.I use an S16pro,pretty affordable yet delivering!!

  9. Uhh.. finally
    I have been waiting for this P38 pro .
    I love ITEL so much
    I want to change my ITEL A56 to P38 pro
    Can’t wait for it to be released……

  10. I’m Always Using Itel Phone But Always They Are Producing New With Out Upgraded The Camera And Ram Why?

  11. I just bought it on Friday 22/July 2022 I love it but what I notice since then is I never experience 4g network on it always 3g
    And I have check the settings and it’s on 4g auto
    I even went to MTN office to upgrade my sim card but what I experienced is 3g

  12. As long as the Giga RAM doesn’t exceed 2 , It is still very useless…
    Can’t you just upgrade from 2GB RAM to at least 4 GB RAM and the GHz from 1. 3GHz to maybe 2.5GHz and see if people won’t rush your product….

    For now, it’s still useless…
