Itel S24 Review – A Budget Contender for Multimedia Consumption

Itel, known for its focus on the budget segment, has unveiled the itel S24 in India as the successor to the itel S23. The latest addition to the affordable lineup promises upgraded features and better cameras, aiming to compete with other budget smartphones in the market. But is the itel S24 truly capable? Let’s dive into this comprehensive review.


The itel S24 proves to be an ideal smartphone for users seeking an affordable yet efficient device that excels in key areas. With a large display, impressive stereo speakers, reliable battery life, sleek design, and good daylight cameras, the itel S24 offers a satisfying multimedia experience. However, it falls short in terms of performance and lacks 5G support.

**Design & Display**

Featuring a simple yet elegant design, the itel S24 sports a shimmery white rear panel named ‘Dawn White.’ The smartphone incorporates color-changing technology, altering the rear panel’s hue under sunlight. Boasting a 6.56-inch IPS LCD display with HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate, the itel S24 offers a decent visual experience, enhanced by impressive stereo speakers with DTS support.


The itel S24 comes equipped with a 108MP primary camera and an 8MP selfie camera. While the device captures good daylight images, it tends to overexpose bright surroundings. Comparing it with the Moto G24 Power, the itel S24 offers similar detail and dynamic range but leans towards warmer tones. The low-light performance is satisfactory but lacks in sharpness and may exhibit lens flare.

**Performance and Software**

Powered by the MediaTek Helio G91 processor, the itel S24 provides a smooth performance for casual gaming and everyday use. The device runs on Android 13 and offers features like the smart panel, game mode, and i-smart gestures. With NFC support and a decent onboard storage capacity, the itel S24 caters to essential user needs.

**Battery & Charging**

With a 5,000mAh battery supporting 18W fast charging, the itel S24 delivers a day’s worth of battery life for average users. The device takes around 1 hour and 43 minutes to charge fully, making it convenient for users on the go.

**Final Verdict**

Priced at Rs 10,999 in India, the itel S24 competes with smartphones like Moto G24 Power, Redmi 12 5G, and Realme C65 5G. While it lacks 5G support, the itel S24 shines in multimedia experiences, camera quality, design, and battery life. The device is recommended for budget-conscious users prioritizing key features over high-end performance.
