This is the worst phone I have ever seen. If it is not freezing, it is typing on its own. Very useless.
Am unable to convert Itel A51 from safemode to normalmode
i can’t watch any video online via YouTube or whatsapp!
this phone is so frustrating!!!!
This is one of the worst androids phone I have used. I couldn’t install any of the software I downloaded. Is either parsing problem or the software is corrupted. Both GTBank and Access Bank app complaint that the hard ware of the phone is compatible with the apps.
