ITEL 1556

The Itel IT1556 is coming out with; 5,000 mAh battery, fast charge and ability to charge other devices (OTG). This is another budget phone from ITEL but with some very exciting specifications.

One major downside for the new Itel 1556 is the 512MB RAM. At a time that other OEM is bringing out smart phones with 2GB or 3GB RAM, 512MB memory is a little too small for Nigerians. The 5 mega pixel camera is also a weak point but if the price is cheap enough, the phone will definitely do well in the market.

  1. Am using itel 1556,I always find difficult to browsed, most especially the Glo network is worse, I times the phone would just when off when am trying to make a call, pls I most let u know since when I but this phone is giving me a lot of problems.

    1. With a follow-come OTG, I could start nodding my head.. but .....

      There is always a but nah.... hehehe...

      Personally, I don't think the 512 MB RAM complements the 8GB internal storage and for a 5,000mAh phone, am surprised it doesn't support 4G network.

      The price isn't so bad.

  2. I also bought my itel1556 since January and it's been OK for me. unlike when I was using blackberry 2800. I no longer cared if NEPA will switch off electricity because I can go for more than 24hrs dispute I have my data on 2/4/7. The phone is worth the cost.

  3. Bangalore is not only the hub of IT Industry, but also famous for its primary as well as higher education. Its educational environment attracts many students of India and worldwide.

  6. I bought itel 1516 early this year and few days later I discovered that I had wasted my money. Because, phone will just went off at will, I can't use external memory card, what about appearing and disappearing of my contacts? I just don't know what to do, but a friend just introduced me to 1556 which I decided to find out about it here only to discover that it being produced out with too low RAM. Haaba 512MB?.im done with any phone call itel. Enough is enough, I will rather go for infinix, and by power Bank to help out
