itel A44 Air review: A remarkable budget segment AI and dual-rear camera enabled device

itel, an offline-only brand from TRANSSION Holdings is aimed at democratizing technology for the masses and offers greater mobile experience at a budget-friendly price segment.

itel A44 Air, the latest launch from itel, has been quite a talk of the town of late. It is quite interesting as the smartphone is said to be a segment-first device which comes equipped with AI Enabled Dual Rear Camera and, that too at a price of only INR 4999. Finding it to be really intriguing, we are eager to get our hands on this device for a review. So let’s have a look at what the phone offers in terms of features and specifications.

AI Enabled DualRear Camera

We are very impressed by what the phone solely markets itself for, i.e. the beauty of the AI enabled dual rear camera. Available at such a great and unbelievable price, this full screen smartphone allows superior security with its speedy face unlock – it’s quite commendable. The phone is equipped with 5MP + 0.08MP AI dual rear camera and 2MP selfie camera which makes a good mark for itself. Considering the price, it is one of its top selling points.

The initial shots that we took from this phone were quite clear and brought out the objects in the picture as fairly vivid. Our effort to take portraits through itel A44 Air turned out to be successful since the AI Face Beauty mode made the face look beautiful automatically. In fact, the camera can take decent photos in low-light as well, truly defining the AI Super Night Shot mode that it comes along with. The device is also accompanied with delightful features like AI HD video recording and portrait bokeh effect.

Specifications, Storage and Battery

On the display front, itel A44 Air bears a 13.84cm (5.45), 18:9 Full screen display. We must say, the viewing experience was pretty immersive. The device is powered by 1.4Ghz Quad-core processor. This dual-SIM phone comes with a dedicated microSD card slot, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of storage and upto 32GB dedicated expandable storage, which is pretty decent for its price point. The itel A44 Air delivers a good battery life, with the 2400mAh battery that it comes packed with. The Android™ Oreo™ 8.1 (Go edition) OS, that runs on this phone, is also a great hit. The device also comes with Face Unlock feature which is fast, secure and convenient way to unlock your phone.


Overall, we were pleased with the smooth performance of the device. The specification and features are quite exclusive to be found in a budget-friendly segment smartphone. This is what adds to itel A44 Air and its amazing user friendliness. The camera quality is definitely the best feature that itel A44 Air personifies. We are happy to recommend it to all the consumers out there.

Priced at INR 4,999 only, the users are promised a wonderful experience similar to that of a premium smartphone. So what are you waiting for? Go grab one for yourself. A44 Air is available in market in 3 attractive colour options – Blusher Gold, Elegant Blue and Slate Grey. The device is available across India and comes with a “100 days” replacement warranty.
