A Review: Tecno Phantom A + (Plus)



The good:  The tecno phantom A plus is a big bang out of the Tecno products. Released July 2013 with amazing new development from Tecno. The Tecno Phantom A Plus comes with outstanding new features. The Tecno phantom A plus comes with an improved 8 Mp camera, 1GB ram, 720 x 1280 pixels, 5 inches screen Dual Sim Support, A 2100 mAh Li-Ion battery and also Android OS, v4.2(JellyBean) with lots of pre installed apps


The bad: The Look and design of the tecno phantom A plus is similar to Samsung products. Although it comes with a 4GB internal memory, But this will be considered small memory size for gamers who want to play advance games and currently not all games and Apps work on this device. And one big Issue is that you cannot update the OS of the tecno Phantom A+ Over The Air—OTA.
