Tecno has come a long way in making itself a brand to reckon with in the African consumer devices market. The firm has a firm grip on the entry and mid level segments with a number of devices that left bigger conglomerates whimpering in an effort to catch air.
The Chinese company’s flagship devices have become something to look forward to in a sense. The devices pack most of what one would look for in a high end device but at half the price of bigger brands.
Their latest device is the Phantom 5, a follow up to the highly successful Phantom Z.
The device is somewhat an improvement with aa few tweaks here and there but the basics seem to suggest we have hut a plateau when it comes to flagship products and now emphasis should be put on optimization of the features the devices pack instead of creating new features.
The Tecno Phantom 5 Price in Nigeria ranges from 69,900 to N85,000 but with time the device will get cheaper.
The Phantom 5 packs a number of new features that the Phantom Z didn’t. The most notable being the finger print scanner. The device is a 4G (LTE) device promising quite good speeds depending on the network. It is a dual sim phone running on the Lollipop 5.1 platform.
