Tecno Phantom A2 Device Review and Full Specifications
After a fairly long break with their large-screen Android devices, Tecno hit the market again with this “next big thing”.
It is no more news that Tecno can be labelled and is now a very popular brand in the smartphone gadget market especially in Nigeria because it perfectly fits the budget of low to average or mid income earners. Tecno has so far humbled the Android market (Samsung, HTC etc) to a great extent.
Now with a moderate price you can get an Android powered phone with amazing features. And following the meteoric success of the Phantom A, the brand has released its successor, the Phantom A2.
The Tecno Phantom A2 Phone is also known as Tecno Phantom AII, Tecno Phantom A2, Tecno F8 Phantom AII and Tecno F8 Phantom AII.
According to a release by Tecno:
Innovative thinking brings brilliant ideas together which contribute to making A2 possible. Life will be much more interesting, simpler, and more colorful with A2. Faster and smarter ways to get connected with the world outside and the people you beloved. A2 is leading the road of next-generation smartphone devices.
Now, let’s look at the features of the new Tecno Phantom A2 (F8), especially those aspects in which it trumps the Phantom A1 (F7).
Display: Tecno Phantom A2 has a massive 5.7-inch display. So, this phone is made to impress those who are sticklers for large display.
Networks: Aside running on 2G and 3G networks, the new Tecno F8 takes one more step ahead by running on the 3.75G network. This guarantees even faster internet connection and download speed.
Os and Processor: Tecno F8 runs on the latest version of Jelly Bean (version 4.2.2) and packs a stronger and faster 1.2 GHz quad core processor.
Camera: Tecno A2 comes equipped with a 13MP rear camera and 8MP front camera. Yes, you read right. 13MP and 8MP! The front camera is definitely a record breaker. None of the high-end smart phones have a front camera with a resolution this high.
Battery: Tecno improved on the F8′s battery. The new smartphone packs a 2630 mAh Li-ion battery.
