A Review Of The Specs Of The Tecno F3

Introduction & Design

The F3 is one of the first three smartphones featured in the new Tecno F phones.  This is a budget phone with modest features that make it ideal for an entry-level user.  It is easy to hold and use it in one hand. It is 8.5mm thick.  There is no screen protection, something that you should not expect from a budget phone and its body is made from plastic.

Display & Camera

Tecno F3 comes with a 5.5 inch IPS LCD display that gives a good viewing experience.  This display has a resolution of 480 x 960 pixels.  The display has good sun legibility and viewing angles.  It is not the best display you can get in phones at its prices range but it is still a pretty good display for a phone below 10K.  Unfortunately, this phone does not come with Gorilla Glass protection. This means that you should buy a protective cover as well as handle it carefully to avoid damages from unexpected falls.  Imaging is done by a 5MP rear camera which comes with an LED flash for low light shots.  There is a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calls.

Software & Performance

The F3 comes loaded with Android v7.0 Nougat out of the box.  It is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor with a clock speed of 1.3GHz.  To make it possible for users to multitask with basic apps, the processor is paired with 1GB of RAM.  As far as storage is concerned, the Tecno Pop1 provides 8GB onboard storage space.  This is the lowest amount of storage you can get in devices at its price point. Fortunately, there is a microSD card slot supporting cards of up to 32GB.

Battery & Connectivity

This mobile phone packs a 2400mia battery.  It can power it through the day on moderate usage. Connectivity options on this phone include 3G, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and micro-USB 2.0.
