Tecno P5 Review


Tecno P5 review

The Tecno P5 is another low-end basic smartphone that has been recently released in Kenya for 8000 – 9000/-. Know exactly what you would get for this too-good-to-be-true price.

Tecno P5

This is a relatively small phone with Tecno’s usual plastic design. It is 124.3 mm tall, 65.5 mm wide and 10.5 mm thick which means that this is a phone you can easy hold and use single handedly and it would fit comfortably in your pocket as well.

The P5 has a 1.3 GHz Dual core processor and 512 MB RAM which will make the phone a bit heavy especially if you tried using more than one app at once. It also runs Android JellyBean 4.2 which is not the latest version of Android but it does come with a sufficient amount of interactive apps and features. The 4GB internal memory won’t take up many apps or games so you’ll probably need to buy an external microSD card that can give you additional 32GB of storage. 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and radio are all on the phone. Also, it’s dual SIM which means that you can have two numbers with you at all times but you can only use one at the time while the other one will be on standby. The 1800 mAh battery will have a decent battery life which means you won’t have to charge it more than once a day.

The phone has a 4-inch TFT screen with 480×800 resolution which leaves 266 pixels per inch. This means that this is a medium sized screen, that could feel a bit small when you’re watching a video, with average quality. The colors are expected to be bright but you might notice that they’re not very sharp and that you might need to zoom in to comfortably read using the phone.

The 5MP back camera easily covers the basics and takes decent average quality pictures. The 2 MP front camera is all you’ll need for making video calls and taking photos.

Bottom line
This is a convenient option if you want a small cheap phone that only covers the basics; the interactive OS, the 5MP camera and the fact that it’s dual SIM. If you can get used to the lagging and the limited internal memory, then keep it mind.
