The phone is powered by a removable 3000mAh battery and it is good for you to know the breakdown of how long it takes to charge the phone from 0%-100%.
This clearly shows that the phone doesn’t fast charging technology. The output Adapter charger is just 1.0A, and this also matters too for fast charging.

At this junction, let me get started with reviews. I’m picking Display first.
The Itel S15 Pro is said to come with a waterdrop FullScreen Display which is uniquely one of the features available in the device.
The waterdrop beautifies the phone in one way or the other but one thing I personally don’t like about the waterdrop here on phone is the fact that Itel didn’t give you the option to hide it probably because of the 16MP camera beneath the waterdrop.
Alongside the waterdrop feature, the phone sports a 6.1″ HD+ with a FullView display and 720*1560 screen resolution.
I watched HD movies on the phone both online streaming and downloaded ones without issues.
Battery level dropped to 27%.
