The itel S18 is one of the best budget smartphones in the market right now. Having just recently come out in late October 2022, the S18 packs a sturdy technical profile with some great upgrades and innovative design
Like its predecessor, the S17, the itel S18 inherits the S-series camera philosophy that aims at providing consumers with incredibly clear pictures at affordable price tags.
In fact, itel says the S18 is made for selfie vlogging, which in the current TikTok and Instagram era, is a deal breaker, especially for Gen Z. That said, here is a review of what the S18 has to offer.
The itel S18 sports a 6.6-inch HD+ IPS LCD screen with a 720 x 1612 pixels resolution and the current standard waterdrop notch. Whether browsing pictures or watching videos, the S18 always brings an immersive and extraordinary visual experience.
The itel S18 is as good-looking as its other counterparts in the S-series, with a dash of modern innovation. Part of that innovation is the new star ring lens on the back camera which is absolutely superb and creative.
Plus, the curved raster patterns and gradient color painting process gives it a unique and attention-grabbing detail.
