  3. Info about d Itel Inote Prime is not totally correct. Its front & rear camera are not 8 mega pixel. It’s obvious it isn’t even up to 5 mega pixel. So if u want to purchase this device, think twice, especially if u are a fan of pics.

      1. very true the camera is like a 1mp coz me too wondered how can an 8mp camera behave like this????may b though it is an 8mp but its PPI is low.

  4. It’s just an ordinary android phone with a rather huge face, nothing fancy about it. The price says it all

  5. hi i have a problem with my itel inote it1701 prime am looking the way to do a hard reset caus i’ve forgot my pass word

    1. Hardreset. Hold Volume Down and Power buttons together. It will boot to engineering mode.

      Scroll down , click on factory reset.

  6. I dnt rili tink d camera z as poor as u make it sound@jadon i tink its up 2 5mp..dat z wat am usin.

    1. uc Love the camera is not 8mp..they must tell us it is 2mp or1.5mp….coz others rush to buy coz of camera strength.And when look at Vodafone tab 3g it has a 2mp camera bt powerful like an 8mp…

      1. Please i bought Itel INote Prime 2 (It1702) on Wednesday being 13/04/2016 at Maraba, Nasarawa state, and today being Sunday 17/04/2016, the screen broke and i don’t know how to get a new screen to replace it. Please help me i have not use this phone up to a week? PLEASE ASSIST ME IN GETTING A NEW SCREEN AS I HAVE NOT SEEN SUCH IN THE MARKET.

    1. Lol. Don’t panic. Take it to carlcare in Ikeja , Lagos. Go there with your receipt. They will fix it free of charge.

    1. I swear this phone is useless, the carama has no quality, I prefers using a 5.0mp of techno p5 to snap ,than using dis useless so called 8.0mp.

  10. my inote cant charge up to 100% it was ok a month ago bt now charges up to 35%and one you remove it from the charge it drops to 30% and runs for less than an hour

  11. Pls if snap a picture to use it for wallpaper gallery, it will become too wide that I can even see the face of the picture, pls what will I do? Secondly can I use my image for screen saver? Pls reply

    1. I think the network in your area is not strong. Try other Sim card to know if you are still experiencing such problems.

    1. Security in what aspect? Extra security features like apps, message, phone contacts, etc can be downloaded on play store.
      It can be rooted.

  12. Pls can both sim1 and sim2 of IT1701 be configured to operate on 3G network whenever I wish? pls reply needed as soon as possible.

    1. Currently, I don’t have a working solution for changing your imei to Glo Bis due to the fact that I don’t have the phone with me. You can root the itel it1701 with KingRoot app. You can search the Android Nigeria for a tutorial on how to use kingroot.

  13. I am at lost wt this fone. i got it as a gift n i dont understand anything abt it.

    and d camera quality is so so poor! Even my Nokia Lumia is far better

  14. pls ao strong is d battery ? does it av flash front camera ? d touch screen is it glass or plastic ? can d 2 sim work on 3G ? dose it av beautiful function and display like Tecno Y6 ?

  15. I just want to buy the tablet and am planning next week. How nice is the tablet and logistics hope the spec is correct. I do not want to regret of buying it so let me know the fact about it b4 I finally purchase it

    1. Yeah! Visit the nearest Carl care shop close to you, they will fix the broken screen. If you can’t then visit a good phone technician to fix it.

  16. 1 Please how can i open the back cover of my itel inote,
    2 My battery power function for 24 hours which is for a day, it there any other way of to put another battery and removes this present one.
    3 my networking sometime when an browsing it will automatically disconnect and said STAND BY SELECT info of to reboot by itself.
    Please help with this problem now be4 i mad pls.

    1. 1. Can’t be removed.
      2. Buy a power bank it’s better than that option you are thinking of.
      3. Maybe network problem… If it persist kindly give the error message it shows.

  17. The phone is good and the ba3 is quite okay if u run it on 3G, even though d camera isn’t up to specification, bt then if its mainly for snapping, then go buy a camera, and for those having ba3 problems, its nt only on ds phone, if u are constantly charging ur phone, it spoils d ba3 life, believe me, it had happened to me, I think d phone should be rated 4.2 of 5

  18. Let’s stop d misconception dt d higher d price, d higher d quality, it doesn’t work like dt, its all abt bargaining power, I got mine for 16500 at akure

  19. Merci beaucoup Delizzy,
    I want to upgrade but I ‘m scared to do it.
    if you can tell me steps by steps how can i do, I am a novice.

  20. I cannot type message on whatsapp and new normal SMS and d keyboard is working on other apps on itel note what can I do

    1. I cant really help you on this as I don’t really understand your questions. I thinking since it has to do with keyboard malfunctioning, you should check out the keyboard settings or download SwiftKey keyboard from play store.

  21. I want to go for this phone, pls friend does this phone camera level is bellow 5mpixel or more than 5mpixel.

    1. my dear don’t buy this phone, u will seriously hate it of u do.
      I just bought mine ,but the phone is useless, d camera of techno p5 is better than this phone camera, 2ndly the phone det hid contacts

  22. Am abt buying this fone and almost all d comment am seeing here is realy discouraging me.pls what fone kan 1 buy dat d picture wil b beta nd do u av any idea abt dis infinix hot2 fone,is d camera ok

  23. I wanted to buy dis phone but am discouraged already….meanwhile which other tablet phone wit 2 sim, battery btwn 3000-5000 mah, 7-10 inches, 1-2 GB Ram, 8-32 GB ROM, 5-8 mp camera front and back, Android version kitkat or lollipop can I buy either Tecno, infinix or any good product.

    1. Use kingroot to root the phone but currently we don’t have a working solution for changing imei on this phone.

  24. Pls my itel1701 screen feel on ground nd d screen get broke nd i wnt to chnge it bt i did nt get d screeen pls hw will i get d screen

    1. If a phone technician close to you can’t fix it. Kindly visit the nearest Carl care Center close to you. They will fix your phone screen for you.

  25. my own itel does auto answering and i cant find where to undo it…i have rooted the phone and change imei but still the blackberry stuff didnt work. please help text me tru 08142819665…and i will call thanks

  26. Did you still upgrade your software?
    Also how can I restore my system apps like default messages which I deleted it after rooting since it was always*unfortunately messages stopped working*

  27. Am really interested in this itel INOTE PRIME but to be frank, am seriously confused by what I have read so far.

    I would want to know why the specification on the advert as regards its features are almost opposit some posts here.

    Does it mean that the keyboard selects where to work since people are complaining of keyboard issue?
    For Battery issue, charge upto 100% atleast twice a month. 90-95% is ok per charge.

    Reduce the contrast of your phone, off your connectivites when your not using them because they consumes greater %of battery.
    I learnt this when I was using just Tecno D5.

    1. The keyboard is working fine. If you don’t like the default keyboard you can download SwiftKey keyboard from play store to replace the default keyboard. Also thanks for the few battery tips.

  28. The phone is quite ok , I HV been using it wt out any issue, pls try and download anti virus before using it for any browsing or any file sharing.
    About the pix, the pix is OK for me , if you fix pholic then go and buy Nikon or Sony camera. Life is all about choice, what you cannot create don’t destroy q.e.d

  29. Good tab. u guys should stop discouraging others. though the camera is not as specified. learn how to use your phone. try and download some apps yourself. Hope they will upgrade soon to better versions.

  30. Thank You All For The Advice Either Good Or Bad An Adage Says One Man’s Poison Is Another Man’s Food I Still Like The Phone Sha Please Encourage Others With Good Advice Thanks Great Nigeria.

  31. I have interest in buying this phone but what you guys are saying Is making me confuse should I buy these for or should I look for another product

    1. It depends on what you want in a phone. One MAN’S TRASH is another MAN’S TREASURE. I can’t make that decision for you. Itel it1701 is good.

  32. My 1701 sometimes charges quickly and sometimes it can take almost a day before the battery can increase by 1%. What could be the problem?

    1. You might not be using the right charger to power your phone. Consider changing the charger/USB cable to confirm this theory.

  33. Pls i have a screen problem with my phone and i was unable to change it for the past few month. Pls any info about d screen and where to get it done

  34. admin please comment on this matter alot of us are already getting discouraged by some posts here give us ur rating of this phone and d full specs not just wat dey said but what you say….is d camera d only problem with the phone?are all other specs up to stated standard?…please reply us and let us go buy/ours befor jumia is sold out….thanxx

    1. Sorry Sammy. Some of our guys are in school and writing their final year exams, so it is difficult keeping up with all the questions.

      We are recruiting more hands to work with us, please bear with us.


    2. Sorry for the delay. The phone Specs are correct. Note that the picture quality of different phone manufacturer with the same camera pixels differs. The 8MP camera on itel differs from that in tecno or infinix.
      Itel camera dont interprete colors well and pictures are not clear.

  35. i decided to take a leap of faith against all odds and i know my God will not let me down sooo i orderd for the itel inote prime, when i recieve my tablet i will then answer to the best of my knowledge and xperience with the new toy…..peace owt *grinz*

  36. pls can u compare between this phone and imose X-1 I’m really confused now I don’t know which to go for. which one has higher quality???

  37. I can not access pen drive as I was using my samsung tab 2 for why? Mean while micro USB 2.0 is part of the specification.
    USB if mounted does not reflect pls help if there is a way out.
    Apart from that it 5 star.

  38. pls sir dis phone has been good 4 d 1st 2 weeks I got it but Nw its showing camera error wen I switch d camera nd d battery doesn’t get full no matter d hours of charging…. wat do I do?

  39. There is nothing wrong with the phone. The phone is exactly what I wanted,the camera is good. Please increase the brightness when ever you want to snap , that will give u greater quality.
    The only problem I have with mine is that it doesn’t charge 100% .It all started the moment my friend’s son damaged my charger. So I think it has to do with the charger I am using and I am going to change it to be sure of that. I have never used it for 8hrs without charging ever since the charger was damaged. Every thing about the phone is very OK.

    1. currently you cant change the imei for Itel iNote IT1701. We will update you when we have an updated tutorial on that.

  42. I think i love this fon, my friend has been using it and it has a good picture quality, am planning to get mine soon

  43. Please does this phone have the voice changer option like the small Itel China phones where one can change voice to either male or female?

    1. Sorry for the late response. Currently you can’t change the imei. And we also don’t have that itel 1701 with us to further our research on it. But we will keep the blog updated when we do lay our hands on one.

Please help me i have not use this phone up to a week? PLEASE ASSIST ME IN GETTING A NEW SCREEN AS I HAVE NOT SEEN SUCH IN THE MARKET.

    1. Hi Jese,

      You will have to visit the Carl care center closest because Carl care is the official service company of Itel devices. There are no Carl care centers in Nasarawa, but you can find one in Abuja and Kaduna. Here is the address for Carl care Abuja Address: 1st Floor, No.16 Gwani Street, off IBB Way, Wuse Zone 4,near King Care Hospital, Abuja, FCT State, Nigeria. Hotline: +234 8181176195. For Kaduna visit this address: Address: G5/F6 Ya Ahmed House, on 3rd Floor, Ahmed Bello Way, Kaduna,Nigeria. Hotline: +234 9095724673. I hope this was helpful?

  56. Your comment..pls is it tru dat d battery of 1702 is slightly weaker dan 1701?. both bags 8 mp camera, 1024×600, which is sharper?

    1. Yes, it is weaker by 100mAh. 1702 has a battery capacity of 3,000mAh while 1701 has a capacity of 3,100mAh

    1. Yes, it can be upgraded. However, that depends on if itel has released an update for your device.

  57. my infinix zero(506) has a battering problem I bought a new battery and replaced it, but since then it has been on/off, what can I do ?

    1. It is most likely you obtained a substandard battery or your devices charging is making the phones battery go bad. I suggest you visit a Carlcare center to obtain a god battery from an authorized repair center

  58. The phone is d best in term of browsing, music and video playing downloading app that suit u.. compare to its price BT its only d camera that’s not up to its specification..

    pls I HV a problem of recent with the fone, its not bringing option of connection when I connect it to my PC.

    Is just charging whenever I connect it tru USB cable. can’t use it access storage memory..
    pls help oooooo…

  59. The specs of Itel inote 1701 are not genuine. Its 8MP is working like 100times pinhole camera! It’s 8 GB ROM is only 4 GB, Leaving only 2.9GB for you. It’s 3000amh battery is like a 1800mah battery (I compared it’s battery life with a Tecno™ Y4 after charging for the first time). It’s running behind time operating with an unupgradable 4.4.2 android kitkat.
    It’s display is fine though but if you are buying the phone just for the sake of the big screen, then go for it. Remember it’s smartphone flip case is made of the poorest materials, it starts cracking the first week after buying it.

  60. Comment I use this INOTE.Sometimes it records proceedings around even the calls for up to 3 hours.
    Please i want to know how how to activate the recording. That is recording in the background without anyone knowing.

  61. pls my itel note battery is faulty and do not charge up to 100 percent.. and it drops immediately i removed the charger… which charger is the best for this fone and also can i change the battery

  62. please my itel1702 screen and touch got spoilt ,I try changing it the screen is working but I have tried 3 touchpad but not working,what maybe the cause need reply urgently

    1. Hello,
      Sorry to hear that. I was wondering where did you file the device? If it was not at a certified itel repair center (Carl care center) then you have to take it there. Phones need proprietary parts to make it function as it was designed. It’s a Carl care repair center within your environment, they should be able to fix it. Best of luck

  63. mt inote it 1701 fell and is now displaying white screen, took it to carl care in Ibadan, without even checking, the attendance said I need to change the screen even though other evidence shows the screen is not damaged. what should I do?

    1. Hi,

      Visit Carl Care center at 77 Opebi Rd, Opebi, Lagos.
      They will fix it for free if you are still under warranty.
