Introduction & Design

Tecno has made a good name for itself when it comes to an affordable smartphone. Tecno F2 is another cheap compact device that can comfortably be held in one hand.  This phone has a plastic body and it is available in several attractive colors.

This phone features a 5.0 inch IPS LCD display that allows the user to enjoy good quality videos.  Viewing angles are not bad and it is also a screen with good brightness.  There is no Gorilla Glass protection, something that is expected in a low budget phone.  That is why it is advisable to buy a screen protector or a back cover. Imaging is handled by a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front-facing shooter.  There is an LED flash on the rear that is very useful whenever you are shooting in dull conditions.  The cameras can also record decent quality videos.

It is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor with a clock speed of 1.3GHz.  To allow you to use multiple applications at the same time, the processor is paired with 1GB of RAM.  For storage, this device host 8GB onboard storage – the lowest amount of storage that you can get in devices within its price range.  Fortunately, there is a microSD slot that allows storage expansion up to 32GB.
