Tecno F5 backs up the 4-inch Tecno family devices which include the Tecno H5, Tecno D5, and Tecno P5 with its 4″ or 4-inch display. With all of them featuring comparable specs and price, it can be a seemingly harder and harder task while deciding which 4″ Tecno smartphone you wish to purchase or acquire..
Luckily, Tecno F5 stand outs uniquely from the huge 4″ inch diaply resolution Tecno smartphones the like of P5. More RAM on any gadget often refers to better speed and performance from the likes of computers but now we’re talking of Android Phones. For android this means better responsiveness of apps. Whereas the other 4-inch devices have 512 MB, the new Tecno F5 launches with 1 GB of RAM which is terrific for a device that costs under Sh. 12,000.
The doubled memory should be able to reflect in overall operation from opening contacts to browsing the web and gaming, thus bringing Tecno F5 up to speed with more expensive offerings like the M7 and the M5. For those comfortable enough with a larger display, the M5 with a 1.3 GHz CPU, 1 GB RAM and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is among the best upgrades for the F5.
On the other hand, Tecno has had to cut a few corners with the device. Those expecting the usual 1800 mAh battery will be disappointed with the new F5. It instead features a 1500 mAh power pack which is quite a significant drop from those held by neighboring 4-inchers. We haven’t had a chance to test its stamina but Tecno promises some 8 hours of talk time and 200 hours stand-by time.

As usual, Tecno has provided dual SIM connectivity with dual stand-by enabling both lines to work simultaneously, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean supporting over 500k apps, 2 MP Skype-ready secondary camera, 32 GB microSD capacity that’s the expandable memory, Wi-Fi hotspot, WhatsApp, BBM, Gameloft games, FM radio and a voice recorder.
Tecno F5 comes along in two distinct looks either black or white.
