Itel Magic 3: A magic from Itel:
Today we are going to review a feature phone. Many of us still use feature phones because we don’t need a smartphone, or many of us use feature phones as secondary phones because they are cheaper and feature phones are better for talking.
Itel Magic 3: First let’s talk about the design of this phone. The Itel Magic 3 phone uses a unibody design to make it feel like a smartphone. It has a 2.5D curved design that will feel very comfortable in the hand, and its size is not too big. Like many other feature phones, it has a slim body.
Looking at the camera bump on the back, it looks like it is a smartphone and there is a speaker grille on the side of the camera bump. And below the back of the phone is the branding of Itel. The phone has a 3.5mm earphone jack, micro USB charging port and main microphone at the bottom. The most interesting fact is that the battery can not be removable. It’s almost like Itel has tried to make it feel like a smartphone.
The main feature of the Itel Magic 3 feature phone is its touch panel keypad. No buttons were used here. Normal feature phones have physical buttons but Itel Magic 3 do not have any physical buttons. It uses a backlit smart panel instead of physical buttons where you can see but can’t press any button, you have to access the buttons through the touch panel. Normally, a feature phone has all kinds of buttons, but all of them are hidden, you can see the buttons only when you are working. There is no fear of accidental pressure on the buttons as a result of the use of smart panels.
Itel Magic 3 uses a 2.8-inch display panel with Resolution: 240 x 320 pixels, Pixel Density: 143 PPI density and Aspect Ratio: 4: 3.
Another positive side of the Itel Magic 3 is that it uses a 1500 AMH Li-Ion battery. If you are a normal user then you will get a 1-week battery backup easily.
One of the best features of Itel Magic 3 is “King Talker”. “King Talker” – This means that when you press on the buttons, you will be heard a voice which button you have pressed. There are many visually impaired people in our country for whom this “King Talker” feature will be very helpful.
Looking at the Power button and volume rocker on the right side of Itel Magic 3, you may be confused about whether it is a smartphone or a feature phone. If you press and hold the Power button, you will get some smart features like – Power Off, Restart and Flight Mode.
You will get Opera Mini and Facebook built-in on the phone, which means you can use Facebook and browse the internet with this phone. One of the problems with Itel Magic 3 is that it does not support Wi-Fi. You need to use the internet to buy the data package of the SIM card. In my opinion, it would have been better if there was a Wi-Fi system, Itel Magic 3 would have been a complete smart package.
Itel Magic 3 uses Real Java, which allows you to download and install a lot of Java supported software. It uses a removable SIM card tray like a smartphone, where two SIMs and an SD card can be used.
One of the features that I like best about the Itel Magic 3 is the built-in wireless FM Radio. Normally you have to connect the earphones to the phone and use the earphones as an antenna to play FM Radio. But it does not need to connect earphones to run FM Radio.
The Itel Magic 3 uses a 1.3 MP primary camera with a rear flash. This phone will be available in Blue and Black. The Itel Magic 3 smart feature phone with 2 years of warranty will be available for only 25USD (Expected).
