Tecno Phantom 5 a pocket-friendly performer that is high
The Tecno Phantom 5 is in every way a budget-friendly smartphone with high end attributes making its acquisition a buy for any user.
With classy, trendy and reputable being some of the adjectives that can result from the unit, the Chinese manufacturer promises users the advantage of a high performance apparatus at a manageable cost.
And in that aspect the smartphone doesn’t disappoint.
To begin with, the device comes in an elaborate packaging in keeping with the manufacturer’s convention of wowing from your onset.
More than the aesthetics, the packaging ensures the smartphone will endure no damage while on transit, thereby relieving a buyer of unnecessary shock.
The inside of the packaging is however minimalist and streamlined making unpacking it all the more a delightful experience
The carton includes the apparatus, a protective cover, a travel adaptor, a pair of earphones, an USB 2.0 charging cable, a SIM key, and two SIM card adaptors.
The adaptors allow for an user to fit either nano SIM or a micro SIM depending on which size they've prior to purchasing the phone.
The protective covering adds the extra security for the glossy apparatus, safeguarding in the event of a fall against dents and scratches.
The smartphone itself boasts a 5.5 inch monolith display, with a 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution and a 420 pixels per inch count making seeing an enjoyable encounter. The handset has measurements of 151 X 75.8 X 6.8 mm and weighs 172 grammes.
The screen has triple-layered Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection to keep scratches away.
On top of the display are the LED flashlight for illumination when taking selfies, or video calls, an eight mega pixel wide-angle front facing camera, a proximity sensor, when on calls and a fairly small ear piece that can occasionally come off as muffled,.
The top edge of the mobile made of plastic has a 3.5mm jack pin allowance, which puts emphasis on the handset’s own minimalist layout.
The jack pin allowance yet comes off as a gaping hole
that's potentially an unofficial store for lint from an user’s pocket.
This really is due to the size which at times forces an user when on a call to correct the handset.
The bottom of the display has the capacitive touch buttons (exit key, menu button, and house button) with an additional capacitive
button that minimizes another three to allow more viewing area.
On the left border of the device is the the SIM card
tray which has provision for two SIM cards that are micro.
The opposite edge has the volume toggle, the electricity/lock button and the memory card tray.
At the bottom edge of the smartphone is the charging interface which doubles up as the connector to a computer or other peripheral devices. On the right side of the charging interface is the mic which could trap lint.
The back of the smartphone features a 13 megapixel primary camera with a double flash light place next to it.
Right under that is a fingerprint detector which is one of the newer features supplied by the maker. Unlike rival brands that allow just one finger to lock the mobile, programs and other characteristics, the Phantom 5’s detector can save up to five fingers allowing for easy use.
Below the detector is a minimalist insignia of the brand that will be a relief to users who've hitherto held that the branding is noticeable in a way that is not pleasant.
At the very bottom of the back is a wide Dolby Digital speaker, which coupled with the smartphone’s double sound equaliser capabilities, creates rich sound during media playback.
Coming to the internal workings, the smartphone runs on the Android Lollipop 5.1 operating system that's been touted as among the most reactive in smartphones.
The simple running operating system is helped by a 1.5GHz octa-core central processing unit, a Cortex A53 CPU, the MediaTek MT6753 chipset, and a Mali-T760 MP4 GPU all which make using the device an experience full of surprises.
The device’s RAM is 3GB which adds to the ease of running even RAM-intensive programs
for example games on the smartphone.
With regards to storage the smartphone offers a whole 32GB of internal memory and this really is expandable to 132GB via a microSD card.
All this is kept running by a 3000 mAh non-changeable battery which offers impressive stand-by and talk time.
The handset is a great deal for users looking to get an affordable device with flagship attributes. There's barely little to bemoan when it comes to functionality and attributes as the the device is a proven performer functioning economically to match other high end brands.
The downside to the device is the plastic top and bottom borders which will break on chip or impact making the device unsightly. Luckily, the protective casing sold with the mobile solves this. The casing also shields the aluminium back of the phone and by extension the fingerprint sensor to keep its functionality.
All in all, for N81,000 Naira, the phone is a great purchase with the convenience of reasonable pricing
against an above average offering of attributes on the apparatus.
