Itel 6910 which is also known as it6910 is a not a smartphone, but a feature phone. This has to be clarified because the phone looks just like a smartphone.

For people who do not understand what a feature phone is, a feature phone is a phone that supports multimedia and can carry out operations like browsing the web and accessing email. The phone runs a Java operating system, just like the phones we had some years ago.

Itel 6910 Review

If the reader casts their mind to some years back, they can recall mobile phones had support for only 2G networks. In the days Java phone dominated, 2G networks were the hot networks of the day. It was towards the end-days of Java phone, that 3G networks came around. Furthermore, 4G networks were not available when Java phones reigned. Being a typical Java phone, iTel 6910 comes with support for only 2G networks.

In the early days of Java phones, phones come with support for only one SIM card. Furthermore, the SIM cards these feature phone uses are micro-SIM cards. Towards the end of their reign, dual-SIM devices started to roll out. iTel 6910 is not like a typical feature phone in this aspect. The phone comes with support for two SIM cards, but one of these SIM cards has to be a nano-SIM card, while the other has to be a micro SIM card.

One of the things that make iTel 6910 iconic, is its look. The device is a feature phone but has the look of an Android smartphone. Not just the appearance resembles that of an Android phone, the interface is just like that of an Android.

Although the dimension of this device is not available, we can state that the smart device has a size similar to that of iTel A11. In addition, this smartphones comes in three colours which are grey, blue, and gold.

Since iTel 6910 is a feature phone, it will be quite pointless to equip this phone with a large display. The display does not measure 5.00 inches (12.7 cm) in size, neither does it measure 5.50 inches (13.97 cm) in size. Rather, the phone comes with a display of 4.00 inches (10.16 cm). The resolution of this display isn’t high, it rather comes with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels. For people who are more concerned about the pixel density of the display, the display has a pixel density of 196 pixels per inch (ppi).

Just as feature phones are known for, iTel 6910 has an internal storage space we consider a joke. The total free space of this smartphone is just 8 MB. Yes, 8 MB was written, not 8 GB. This should not be a surprise since this phone is just a Java phone. As the total free space of the phone is a joke, the phone supports memory expansion. Being explicit, this device’s, storage can be expanded up to 16 GB. Just like Android phones, micro SD card is the kind of storage device used for memory expansion.

As stated above, iTel 6910 is a Java phone. The feature phone runs a Java operating system. Owing to this, the phone can not run an Android app. Some might argue that Android apps are also written in Java, and this is true. However, this doesn’t mean the phone will run Android apps, as the Java codes written for Android apps undergo some processing. In addition, the phone can not run Java SE apps and Java EE apps. Rather, it can run only Java ME (mobile edition) apps.

Unlike typical feature phones, iTel 6910 comes with two cameras, not one. The phone has a camera in its front and another one on its rear side. The camera in the front has a resolution of 0.3 megapixels. This is very poor for an Android phone, but okay for a Java phone. The camera on the rear side of this feature phone has a resolution of 3 megapixels. This rear camera furthermore has the support of a LED flash, which enables the phone to take pictures in dark places.

The battery that powers iTel 6910 is a Li-Ion battery. We could not have expected a Li-Po battery in this feature phone as the cost of producing them is higher than that of Li-Ion batteries. The battery of the phone has a capacity of 1900 mAh. While this might appear to the poor, it is not. Owing to the fact that the phone is not sophisticated, a 1900 mAh will serve the user of this phone properly.

iTel 6910 does not come with a fingerprint scanner. Trying to equip it with the hardware is quite pointless because the ways the hardware can be used will be limited. Apart from this, the presence of a fingerprint scanner will also drive up the cost of the smartphone.

Discussion

OS

One of the most important things that should be discussed about this phone, is its operating system. Although, the phone looks so much like an Android, but the truth is that it is not. iTel 6910 is rather a Java phone as it runs the Java operating system. For people who do not understand what we mean by Java phones, we mean the kind of phones that existed before the birth of smartphones. They are furthermore the kind of phones we used to download apps for, on websites like waptrick.com and sefan.ru.

Since this phone is Java phone, it would not run Android apps. In other words, forget using apps like Xender, Whatsapp, Instagram, etc. Rather than Android apps, the phone runs Java apps. While it is true that Android apps are also written in Java, it is important that Java codes written for Android undergo further processing. In conclusion, this smartphone is not meant to be a replacement for a smartphone.

CAMERAS

iTel 6910 is quite different from a lot of Java phones in the aspect of camera. This device comes with two cameras, rather than one camera, as seen in typical Java phones. A 2 megapixels camera exists on the rear side of the feature phone. In the front of the phone, is another camera which has a resolution of 0.3 megapixels. The front camera does not have the support of a LED flash, but the rear camera does.

To an Android user, a 2 MP and a 0.3 MP camera are a big joke, and this is very true. However, it is important not to forget that this phone is just a feature phone. Feature phones are not epic phones, so nothing serious should be expected from the cameras of this device. Unlike the cameras of Androids, the cameras of these phones do not produce serious pictures.

STORAGE

The internal storage space of iTel 6910, is nothing to write about. The phone comes with a free space of 8 MB. This 8 MB of storage space can hardly store up to 10 standard images. High-quality images cannot exist on the internal storage, because they often occupy more than 8 MB of storage. However, this is absolutely not a catch. The phone was designed for people who need a small phone, and people who also like their small phone to come in a nice appearance.

There are people who use their small phones to listen to music. There are a number of reasons for this, but whatever the reasons are, additional storage space will be required. As a result, iTel 6910 was produced to support storage space expansion. The storage space of the device can be expanded with the help of a micro SD card. When expanding the storage space of this phone, it is important not to expand the phone’s storage beyond 16 GB. Going against this caution can damage the device.

APPEARANCE

It is very uncommon for feature phones to be topics of discussion, but this phone is. The primary reason why this phone is quite popular is because it has a disguising look of an Android smartphone. Talking about its design and user interface, the phone looks just like an Android phone. Unlike typical feature phones that come with physical keyboards, it6910 comes with a virtual keyboard. A typical example of the virtual keyboard are those used on Androids.

iTel 6910 is clearly bigger than most feature phones, but not as big as a random low-end Android smartphone. The device has a 4.00 inches (10.16 cm) display, which is also the size of some low-end Android phones. The display size of this phone was mentioned, to help the give an idea of the size of this phone. As iTel phones are generally known for, this phone is quite thick. Lastly, the phone does not have an epic design. The design of the phone can be described as “okay”.

DISPLAY

As it was stated in the previous paragraph, iTel 6910 has a 4.00 inches (10.16 cm) display. For a Java phone, this is very cool. Typical Java phones have displays much smaller than this. Putting in other words, the phone is better in this aspect. For people who would love to play the old-school Java games, this phone will give a nicer experience playing those games with it. The display belongs to the TFT family and it consumes less power, compared to the displays of Android phones.

The size of a display is not the only important thing about displays. Resolution is almost as important as size. It will be very bad if a phone comes with a large display, but a poor resolution. It will be also bad if a phone comes with a high resolution but a small display. The display of iTel 6910 comes with a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels. This resolution leaves this display with a pixel density of 196 pixels per inch (ppi).

BATTERY

iTel 6910 comes with hardware that consumes less power, compared to Android phones. This is to infer that we do not expect a battery as powerful as those seen in Android phones. An average feature phone comes with a battery of 1000 mAh. it6910 does not come with such a battery. Rather than featuring a 1000 mAh battery, the phone features a battery that is twice as powerful. This battery has a capacity of 1900 mAh.

Rapid-charge system is a feature of powerful phones, so we do not expect it from this smartphone. Even if iTel decides to add it to this phone, it is a feature that is not wanted because it serves no serious benefit while driving up the cost of the phone. With a good charger, the phone should be fully charged under 3 hours.
