Full Review of Tecno L8

Display
Tecno L8 comes in an elegant plastic finishing, creatively crafted with curve edges to facilitate easy grisp and handling. It has a dimension size of 77.5x154x8.85mm. in addition, the screen flaunts a 5.-inch display size of 720 x 1280 pixels in dimension.
The display functionality beats my expectation as it provides a wide angle of view on a much improved 267 ppi resolution density. Is it that great for a moderate budget phone?

Hardware and Software Performance
The Tecno L8 is powered on a 1GB capacity RAM, unlike the Tecno L8 plus which runs on a 2GB RAM. It is also supported by a 1.3GHz MediaTek Quad-core processor unit. All of these are combined together to give the device a superb performance. This means that you will enjoy multitasking functionalities with ease, speed and of course flexibility.
TECNO L8 uses the latest version of Android 5.1 Lollipop which is laced with an exotic HiOs user interface found in the Tecno Boom J8 smartphone which allows the music streaming app called Boom Player.

Camera
Seriously, I would have expected that the Tecno L8 is blessed with a 20MP and 13MP camera to make the device a camera wizard, lol! UNFORTUNATELY, it is not! Instead, it is modestly endowed with an 8.0MP rear camera for taking modest crystal clear picture quality. Although the front-facing camera is just 2 Mega Pixels, it is not too bad for a “modest” selfie lover.

Battery Capacity
Sincerely speaking, am very much impressed with the battery capacity of this device. You won’t believe the Tecno L8 DEVICE IS BLESSED WITH a powerful, long-lasting 5050Ma battery. This means that you can enjoy at least 48 hours of normal phone usage. If you are a heavy phone user like me, you can still get up to 36 hours of heavy phone usage.
Tecno really understands the Nigerian mobile requirements as far as battery and power usage is concerned. We are still battling with many days of black out in several part of the country. Innovatively, Tecno is already seeking ways to help us conserve the little energy in our phones. With your Tecno L8 phone in sight, you may not really need a power bank after all. Isn’t that amazing?
