Many Nigerian smartphone buyers are very aware of phone specifications and most of them know which chipset is strong, which screen type and resolution are the clearest, and so on. This is particularly relevant to consumers who purchase devices at least once a year.
Tecno really tried by putting a gaming-centric processor from Mediatek. It may not be the strongest but it is good for an entry device. As for the display, it has a huge screen size but the resolution is quite disappointing.
The Tecno Pova is definitely a good-looking device, and at least the battery and design the design is attractive.
