Smartphone With The Longest Battery Life At The Most Affordable Price is Coming To Nigeria This Month

Image
A little bird just told me that TECNO is planning to release a smartphone with 5000mAh battery.




I’m not sure it its confirmed to release this year but the code name is L5 and it would run on Android 5.1 Lollipop. It is also equipped with a 4.5” IPS touchscreen. 




It does seem like TECNO is coming for companies like GIONEE but with a 4.5” screen, it’s bound to be even more long lasting, more affordable and portable compard to the bulky Gionee M series which have kept the battery life junkies happy in the past. 


With a form factor like the L5, I’m almost certain you could get 2 to 3 days of usage, no matter what you do with this thing, be it any combination of social media, browsing, gaming, calling, messaging, photo or video capturing, you name it. 


 You can bet TECNO is ready to own the low end smartphone market.

Consider this before buying your android phone

Image
If you need an android device, getting a Samsung, HTC, Sony, or LG phone is actually a sensible thing to do. This phones are premium devices that also have special functions that come with them. However if your budget is below 50,000 naira, buying a phone made by any of the manufacturers listed above seems more like a waste. The Samsung Galaxy E5 which retails for about 49,000 naira has a battery power of 2400mah, a 8mp rear facing camera, and 5mp front facing camera. It also has 16GB ROM and 1.5GB RAM. If you are spending almost 50,000 on a phone then you should get more than what this phone is willing to offer. The Samsung grand prime which retails for about 34,000 naira has just 1GB RAM. LG is also similar to Samsung in this regard as its D335 comes with 8GB ROM and 1GB ram and has just 8mp rear facing camera with a battery power of 2540mah.                 In contrast phones like tecno and infinix  are much more affordable and gives you more for your money. The camon …

TECNO Phantom 5: Finger-Print Sensor Champion

Image
Ever since the iPhone 5s was launched in sept 2013, I have been secretly craving the fingerprint sensor feature. It even became more apparent after the samsung s5 joined the fingerprint sensor fam andaround the time the Note 4 rumours started coming in that I knew I had to get myself on that train.

Why did I fancy the finger print unlock so much?! Well SECURITY! I mean I'm glued to my phone but not 24/7 so for those times I get to hang out with friends for games or whatever, I  take a pee break and get back only to see my phone being passed around coz of one funny picture or something. More so the 4 digit password and pattern locks aren't fool proof, a peek is all it takes and then anyone could access your private information. Some friends don’t understand the concept of PRIVACY!


Why not get the iPhone/Samsung? I would admit, couldn't afford to shell out over N100k Nah, not on my N19,800 a month corper salary as at last year.
So my obsession grew as I began my search on Aliexpr…

LEAKED PHOTOS: Is Tecno Building A 4G/LTE Android Lollipop Phone?

Image
A leaked image of an unnamed Android device branded by Tecno just got to us. From the looks of it, Tecno is probably still experimenting with the device as it appears to run Vanilla Android – an customized UI version of Android. But if you observe the on-screen icons at the bottom, it is definitely Android Lollipop 5.0.


More photos reveal further details about the device. It features a dual flash camera. From what we gather, similar to the Tecno Boom music phone series, this range is all about camera. Our source on the inside also hints at the possibility of 4G/LTE connectivity support.

From the below, our guess is that it will also feature a 5-inch screen. But like we said before, this is probably only a demo unit, so we can’t be sure. The prospects are exciting and should this phone see the light of day, we can expect to see more of this type of phone from Tecno.

Tecno to Launch New Windows Tablet, the WinPad 10

Image
There are quite a number of low cost Windows 8/8.1 out in the market. These range from 7 inchers to 8 inchers and in some rare cases 10 inchers. Microsoft doesn't charge those who are bundling Windows on devices below 9 inches so that has been an interesting proposition for most OEMs and other Microsoft partners. Like the first Windows 8.1 tablet from Lenovo we were drooling over some time back. What we have not seen however is an explosion of such budget Windows tablets in the African market or even their popularity surging. That could change when one of the biggest brands in mobile in Africa today, Tecno, unveils its new WinPad tablet running Windows 8.1. Tecno has turned heads in the African market where it operates at the moment. With a factory to churn out its devices in Ethiopia, the company is widely popular in the Kenyan and Nigerian markets. It is in the latter market where the WinPad 10 is launching in the next two days with Kenya and a few other African countries being…

8 Amazing Things Your Tablet Can Do

Image
Do I need a Tablet? Frankly, if you’re one of those who have asked that question you wouldn’t be lame to have thought about it, no. In fact, one can do things so amazing with smart phones these days that one has to wonder “Who needs a Tablet?” But the thing is, you cannot swap a Tablet for any smart phone especially if a “Portable PC” in any regard is what you’re looking for. Here’s why. E-reading better on Tabs You just can’t ignore it; Tablets have larger and more immersive display screens. Take for instance, the 8.0” Touch screen of the DroiPad8is twice the screen size of your iPhone 4;the screen size and high image definition of Tablets clearly bring the letters in your e-documents to life. That means you can enjoy reading your daily e-news, e-books, blog posts and documents from your Tablet without having to squint while you read. Who says screen size does not matter? Work from anywhere As smart as your mobile phone may be, you just can’t do your regular office work from your mobile …

Tecno Boom J7 First Impressions

Image
Hey guys, So the generous guys from Tecno thought it wise to consult my "expert" opinion on how they could reach you, the target market. I received a phone from Tecno at about 3pm yesterday and now I'm going to try to arrange my first thoughts and what I have observed within the first 24hours of using their latest midrange Smartphone, the Tecno Boom J7

Upon unboxing, I noticed that Tecno has taken a different approach with the color of its casing as it differs from that of its 2013 flagship, the Phantom A+, that I purchased way back when. The A+'s case was basically Blue and quite playful whereas the Boom J7's box is white and Black with music related artwork, which could mean that the J7 primarily caters to the music lovers. Inside the box, you have your Smart phone, a premium headset, 2 plastic protective cases(without a leather flip), A charger, the Battery and some literature booklets. The spec summary;  5.0" touchscreen display at 720 X 1280p (~294pp…
