Tecno-Phantom-6-plus

Tecno is at it again with the release of yet another, powerful flagship smart phone device, the Tecno Phantom 6 and Tecno Phantom 6 Plus. You will recall that the older phantom version, Tecno phantom 5, released earlier last year was an elegant design.

The official release date was on September 25 2016.The device was launched in Dubai, and witnessed by thousands of business men and top celebrities. However, you ain’t seen nothing yet until you have laid your hand on the new Phantom! In this review as usual, we will be letting you in on Tecno Phantom 6 price in Nigeria, specs and features. Let’s go…

Tecno Phantom 6/Plus Features & Specifications

Design & Display

In a world where being slim is synonymous to elegance, the Phantom 6 reigns supreme. You will have no choice than to marvel at the sleek metallic design. There are about 5 metallic layers enclosing the device to give the phone some measure of durability.

Imagine, Phantom 6 is only 4.69mm thick, while the Phantom 6 plus is just 7.7mm. It looks pretty comfortable in the palm and slides into the pocket quite easily. Very slim…see the image below!

You will see the Tecno Phantom 6 price in Nigeria, at the bottom of this post, read on…

Despite the sleek elegant profile, a breath-taking 4050mAh battery still manages to sit graciously without altering its sleek look or throwing in too much weight. Call that amazing, we call it ultra-fine technological advancements!

Tecno Phantom 6 comes in a beautiful 5.5 inch display, while the Tecno Phantom 6 plus comes in slightly larger display of about 5.0 inches. The screen has a full HD resolution and is definitely scratch-proof. In other words, you don’t need to be afraid of your Phantom 6 getting scratched or cracked if it falls. Thanks to the Corning Gorilla glass 3.0 which protects the device against the vagaries of mishandling.

Battery Capacity & Power Optimization

Take it or leave it, Tecno understands the peculiarities of is business area in Africa as far as the issue of power is concerned. Both the new Tecno Phantom 6 plus and the ordinary phantom 6 boast of a high battery capacity of about 4,050mAh. That gives you a whopping 72 hours of phone usage (at least!) without the need to charge your device.

Power consumption in the new phantom 6 has been made so efficient that a high phone usage will translate to minimal battery consumption. Thanks to the in-built high grade power optimization feature.

In addition, the charge technology enables faster charging times for your device when plugged in during charging periods. This will invariably reduce the risk of unnecessary heating up of the phone battery, so as to prolong battery life.

However, the battery remains non-detachable from the phone. This may be a little turn off for users who enjoy removing the battery from their phones. Well, not a major issue if you won’t have any cause to remove the battery from your phone though.

Hardware & Operating System

Both Tecno Phantom 6 plus + and Tecno Phantom run on a 2.1GHz Deca-Core processor called MediaTek Helio x20 Chipset. This confers an amazingly fast loading speed to boot the device, allowing you to navigate the phone and press buttons almost instantaneously like lightning!

In addition, the Phantom 6 + plus is endowed with a 4GB RAM and has a 64GB internal storage. You can also get an SD Card slot of about 128GB on the phantom 6+. On the other hand, the Tecno phantom 6 comes with a modest 3GB RAM and has a storage capacity of 32GB.

The two devices run smoothly on the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. And they are both powered by the elegant HiOs, Tecno Custom-made user interface and Operating system.

 

Tecno Phantom 6 Plus + vs Tecno Phantom 6: What’s The Difference?

Both devices are similar in a number of ways. However, there are a few subtle differences between the two phones:

  • Tecno Phantom 6 plus has got a higher RAM
  • Phantom 6 Plus comes with both fingerprint reader reader and Iris scanner as an extra security feature, while Phantom 6 only has an iris scanner
  • Phantom 6 plus has a slightly larger screen.

Camera Designs & Functionalities

We noticed that the back camera resolution in Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 plus is up to 21MP. On the contrary, the unique camera set up is somewhat different from what is found on regular smart phone devices.

Both Phantoms have a dual rotating double camera; similar to what is found on HTC M9 Android phone. The dual rotating double cameras give you both automatic and manual controls. Through the Digital Single-Lens Reflex (DSLR), the automatic camera adjusts perfectly to give you crystal clear images.

 

See the dual rotating camera feature below:

With the notable camera functionalities, we can CONFIDENTLY say the Tecno Phantom 6 plus knocks off the much talked about Tecno boom j8.

Fingerprint Reader & Iris Scanner

Have you been looking for a phone with an extra layer of security for your needs? Look no further, the Tecno phantom 6 plus series has got an in-built fingerprint reader that can fully match your fingerprints to lock and unlock access into the device. You can also lock/unlock the phone by simply looking into the front sensor.

Thanks to the in-built iris sensor, that uses Artificial Intelligence to compare with that of the phone user. In other words, nobody can unlock the phone except you since your iris architecture and fingerprints are unique to you alone. Isn’t that amazing? Sure, it is!

  1. Thanks for this post….
    Is really a brave step…Tecno mobile phone Taking its first official step into the international scene, unleashing its potentials by coming up with this powerful Tecno Phantom 6. I truly believe they put the country recession into consideration if not the price will be more the we expect.

  2. In this recession, lol. But really Tecno suprised me. A 4GB RAM phone, really nice.

    Let see which will sell faster, I think 6-inch is too big anyway..

    • The phantom 6plus is awesome without putting a hole in your pocket. The pixel and iPhone 7 costs like 3 times wat you get for the phantom. In this recession I know which one I’d go for.

  3. both phones are truly amazing. The nickname given to both epitomizes their individual abilities. Running through the specs and I can conclude that the tecno guys took their time to produce these great phones.

  4. Since i got this phone everyone wants to hve a feel. Who wouldn’t want to, awesome design and equally powerful on the inside.

  5. Techno generally does not appeal to me, one – techno as it’s name sounds and two – features and three – designs. But, phantom 6 plus 80mp – literally walked up to a class, acting as leader who have broken a big barrier for other technos to be viewed in a light. Believe me, I never knew that another phone was able to snatch my interest from htc one plus. examine the rear camera of the both phones and you will understand.
    – SIR JKC –

    • the 80MP is actually a camera feature. The actual back camera goes for 21MP, but because of the SONY Super pixel camera feature, it is capable of effecting the 80MP quality. Madt, yes?!

  6. These phones are easily Tecno’s best phones they have ever done. It makes one wonder why they started poorly in the first place. Imagine if they had been great when they first came on all those negative branding will not be an issue. Phantom 6 Plus all the way for the real men. Cheers!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. The Storage capacity of the Phantom 6 does it for me. 32GB Internal storage and can accept up to 128GB Haaaaa!!! What do I want to put inside. That’s like a mini Laptop already. Elite stuff

    • true that, but i think there re more things i like abt the phone other than the phone memory, thats not a spot on feature

  8. Anybody that doesn’t like the BEAST is a hater period. What is there not to like? The Beast is that guy that every girl likes and you just dey vex cause he will sha steal your babe.

  9. Recently my one month old Techno Phantom 6 Plus has been rejecting incoming calls and giving the message that the line is busy. I concluded that it is phone and not the service provider when I removed the SIM card and separately put two other SIM cards in the Tecno one after the other and the constant message when I called using another phone was that the line is busy.

    I checked settings carefully but since yesterday I could not resolve matter. I thought I can get from other users or Tecno officials what I should enter to resolve the matter without taking the phone physically to Tecno office. Please advise me.

    • Hello Abubakar,
      am so sorry about the issue you are experiencing with your phone. There are some issues I would like to clarify first.

      Does the phone display an incoming call with the option to receive/reject the call? If it does, does the on-screen accept touch button work clickable or it just doesn’t indicate an incoming call/ring out?

      If the onscreen reject/accept button is not clickable, then it is most likely because you installed an App recently which interferes with the phone. In that case, I suggest you uninstall most of the recent apps you installed since you started experiencing the issue. That would ordinarily fix the issue.

      Let me know if this works.

      • Dear Adeniyi,

        Thank you for the quick reply to my complaint.

        When the line in my Techno Phantom 6 Plus is called there is no indication on the phone that an incoming call is on the way. Nothing at all. The only thing one hears from the dialling phone is that the line is busy. This continued even after I uninstalled several applications that I installed from the play store.

        Please look into this issue and guide me to resolve it.

    • Looks like it’s still under warranty, try to see if you can get it replaced by your dealer. If not possible, a trip to Carlcare office would be in order.
