Itel P55 is the latest and most affordable smartphone that comes with amazing features and functionalities. Some of the features include expandable processing and storage memory, a 5000 mAh strong battery with 18W fast charging feature, a 50MP rear camera, and built on Android 13 OS.

In this review, I am going to show you everything you need to know about the Itel P55 smartphone, the Price in Nigeria, the specifications, and a comparison with its predecessors. However, the Itel P55 has three different models namely: P55, P55+ Plus, and Itel P55T. I will explain the differences and similarities among the 3 variants below.

Itel P55 VS P55T VS P55 Plus (Compared)

The first thing I will do is to help you know more about the itel P55 models which will help you make the right choice if you have any intention of buying the phone.

Display and Design

Both models of itel P55 come with a 90Hz screen refresh rate and a 6.6-inch punch-hole display. When you look at the back you will see a dual camera setup along with an LED Flashlight aligned just like that of Itel A70 and the S23+. However, the itel P55 Plus looks different when it comes to camera positioning, the camera is aligned vertically with the LED camera right middle of the cameras.

The phone looks great and attractive but looking at the camera setup they both offer a 50 MP rear camera and an 8MP front camera. From my observation, the internal settings of the cameras might be different but there is no superiority from one model to another and the camera shouldn't be one of the determinants when choosing between itel P55, P55T, and P55+ Plus because they offer the same camera configuration.

RAM and Storage memory

Itel P55 models offer different options when it comes to processing random access memory (RAM) and internal storage memory. Each model offers 3 options to choose from and they are as follows:

Itel P55 Memory variations

24GB RAM (8GB + 16GB extended RAM) + 256GB storage memory
24GB RAM (8GB + 16GB extended RAM) + 128GB storage memory
12GB RAM (4GB + 8GB extended RAM) + 128GB storage memory

Itel P55T Memory variations

16GB RAM (8GB + 8GB extended RAM) + 256GB storage memory
16GB RAM (8GB + 8GB extended RAM) + 128GB storage memory
8GB RAM (4GB + 4GB extended RAM) + 128GB storage memory

Itel P55+ Plus Memory variations

16GB RAM (8GB + 8GB extended RAM) + 256GB storage memory
16GB RAM (8GB + 8GB extended RAM) + 128GB storage memory
8GB RAM (4GB + 4GB extended RAM) + 128GB storage memory

From the list above you can see that Itel P55 offers more processing RAM than other models and for those who don't understand the word (extended memory), it simply means that a certain amount of memory will be mapped out from the storage memory to add to the RAM to give the phone more power to perform better.

Battery Capacity

As listed on the itel official website, both itel P55, P55T, and P55 Plus are powered with 5000 mAh battery capacity but with a different fast charging feature. Itel P55T and P55+ Plus have 45W fast charging while the normal itel P55 has 18W fast charging.

Looking at the battery capacity it is clear that both phones come with strong and reliable batteries, what differentiates them is the fast charging features which made the P55T and the P55 Plus better.

Operating systems

Both phones are equipped with the Android 13 operating system clocked with an Octa-core Processor. However, the official itel website reveals that the itel P55T comes with Android 14 Go edition, with one of the latest Android operating systems onboard together with enough processing memory you will surely experience the best performance and stability with the new itel P55 series. As for which model is the best in terms of the OS and the processor, I can say that both variants are okay and should be one of the things to consider when making a choice of which one to buy.

Camera Differences

Itel was not specific when looking at the information provided on their website. However, what I can see is that both models of the P55 series offer a single 50 MP rear camera and an 8MP front selfie Camera. Itel P55 series might not be the best when it comes to cameras but you will surely get good colorful and brighter images with this configuration.

Itel P55 series supports only 3G and 4G LTE networks with a side-mounted fingerprint sensor and also comes with a Type-C charging port which is more stronger and reliable.
