Tecno – the budget king, is a big player in the smartphone scene in Africa, especially in Nigeria, and it is because of smartphones like the Tecno POP 5P. The new smartphone is an upgrade to the previously released Tecno POP 5, and it comes with a larger screen, bigger battery and perfect for persons who want a closer to premium feel than what the predecessor offered. Don’t get me wrong, the two are very much still entry-level smartphones and I think that is clear considering the Go Edition OS on it and plastic casing but the Tecno POP 5P is just a tad bit better and fits into the big screen trend of premium smartphones.
The Tecno POP 5P with its upgraded specs will break the conundrum on whether or not it will be a budget smartphone worth buying for some. Here is a run down of the specs and features of the smartphone;

Released as just another another budget offering which is peculiar to smartphones at this price point, the Tecno POP 5P does not set off any bells and whistle. However, it does offer enough for entry-level smartphone users to work with starting from the big 6.52-inch HD+ screen to the ample 5, 000mAh battery to fuel your day to day use.
Furthermore, the Go Edition OS occupies lesser storage space making more of the 32GB built in storage available for actual use. Also whilst making the best use of the budget quad-core processor and meagre 2GB RAM to provide better performance with its ‘Lite’ operation mode. There is the dual 5MP camera at the back and then there is an 8MP selfie camera which wouldn’t take the best pictures but they serve the purpose anyway.
