Design & Display

If you ask us, we’d say itel made the A36 for compact phone lovers—people who enjoy using their phone with one hand in most cases. Coming with a 5.5-inch qHD full display and good aspect ratio, A36 offers an excellent visual experience for all your multimedia consumption. Whether you’re watching movies, scrolling through Facebook, viewing pictures, or just reading, you’ll enjoy everything itel offers you at a bargain price.

It didn’t end there; itel A36 mobile features a slim design with a gorgeous-looking design. We love the 2-color gradient finish on the back. The proper alignment of the camera module, branding texts, and the speaker looks good as well. Even at its price point, itel managed to include a capacitive fingerprint sensor on the back, which also helps you perform other functions on the device—we’ll get to that in a bit.

Performance and processing speed

Powering the itel A36 is the SC7731E Quad-core chipset with a clocked CPU speed of 1.3GHz. It’s an entry-level processor targeted to offer virtuoso performance for smartphones of this caliber. With 1GB of RAM, A36 is excellent for running non-demanding tasks like texting, calling, using social media, and playing some supported games.

Surely, the itel A36 isn’t for power users and we don’t expect that at this price point. More so, users looking forward to buying phones of this caliber aren’t powering users. So, it doesn’t matter. However, it works well if you don’t push it too far in terms of performance.

Where this device shines are the software and extra features. With Android 9 (Go Edition), using the itel A36 is a lot better. The software is tuned to enhance devices like the A31; it uses fewer resources than the regular Android OS.

Additionally, you’ll also be amazed knowing the number of things you can do with the fingerprint sensor on the A36. itel claimed you can use the fingerprint sensor for additional eight things besides securing unlocking your phone. The sensor allows you to unlock your protected apps, take pictures, stop an alarm, answer an incoming call, and more.

Storage space

Moving forward, the itel A36 is loaded with a decent amount of storage for its price. The 16GB of inbuilt storage allows you to store many files, pictures, videos, apps, games, and others without using a microSD card at first. Even better, you can pop in up to a 32GB memory card if the initial storage isn’t enough.


With the aid of AI cameras, you’ll be able to take good pictures on the A36. The device provides you with 5MP cameras with flashes on the front and rear. Regardless of what you’re shooting and the location, the itel A36 images are perfect examples of what you can expect on an entry-level smartphone.

With a good amount of light, the itel A36 camera turns out good, providing shots you can post on social media with your full chest.

Battery life

The itel A36 price in Kenya is a steel offer when it comes with battery life. With a massive 3020mAh battery capacity, A36 gives you long hours to enjoy the phone before you need to recharge it again. And when it’s time to refill the battery, its high-quality charger tops it up faster.

Not only does the itel A36 feature a large battery, but it also comes with a slim design as well. That means the device won’t look bulky in your hands or cause fatigue when in use.

Final thoughts

Most times, it’s hard to get a good Android phone below KSh. 7000 phones. And when you find some, just pray they’re not compromised on the features you care for. However, the itel A36 ticks most of the boxes required for an entry-level device:

  • Great battery life –
  • Sleek design and crisp display –
  • Good camera output in good lighting condition –
  • Excellent performance for its price range – checked.
  • Large inbuilt storage – checked.
  • Warranty with reliable customer service – checked!

For a device starting from KSh 6,500 and going up to KSh. 7,000, the itel A36 price is lit and it performs well.
