Tecno had been struggling long ago with the kind of smartphones it produced. Having a single flagship per year was the tune then. But just after releasing the Tecno Boom J7, there has been tremendous performance. Phone after phone, all super and running on latest Lollipop OS with 4G network support. This am meaning the Tecno Camon C5, Tecno Camon C8, Tecno Phantom 5 and many others. A new fish is in town, released about one and half months ago, Tecno Boom J5 is just what you need for that awesome music feel.

Feel the super 3G network that provides seamless performance with blazing download speeds. On top of that it has an elegant design and display, meaning you don’t have to hide your phone because it is ugly.
