Tecno F3 Pro Overview
Here, I will be doing a review of the features of this smartphone. The Tecno F3 Pro comes with a screen size of 5.5 inches and a 960 x 480 pixels with IPS material. Located at the top of the screen, is the front camera, which is 5MP, which is impressive and upgrading when compared with its other predecessors.
However, you should note that there is a LED flash at the front of this device too, which makes it easier to take photos in a low light enivironment. Personally, I don’t appreciate the front flashlight, since the front camera is mostly used to take selfies, the flash tends to temporiarly blind the human eyes.
At the back of the Tecno F3 Pro, I tell you, it’s as plain as it can be. Unlike other newly released devices, there is no fingerprint sensor there. But there is a 13MP camera at the back, coupled with a dual LED flash.
Taking charge of how this device works, is a quad-core MTK chipset, which clock as much as 1.3GHz. This quad-core MTK chipset is also backed up by a 1GB RAM CPU. Tecno did build this device with a 16GB storage, where you get to save your files, Apps, Music, and video. You should probably know that you won’t be getting the 16GB in full since it will also house other Apps and files which do come with this smartphone. But there is goodnews, the F3 pro does come with an option of expanding your phone memory. You can decide to expand the memory to 32GB, thanks to a microSD card slot.
Like every smartphone released in this period, F3 pro do come with the Android 8.0 Oreo and honestly, had they used anything lesser than this, it would have been bad for the brand.
In color availability, we discovered that the Tecno F3 pro do come in four colors, which are Red, Elegant Black and Champagne Gold.
Battery wise, this device comes with a 2400mAh battery, although am not impressed by the size, it can last for hours.
Tecno F3 Pro (Pop 1 Pro) Price
One thing I admire about Tecno is their market techniques. Unlike other phone brands that do waste time bringing their phone to the market after lunch, we’ve come to know Tecno as the opposite. You can buy the Tecno f3 pro at 30,000 Naira – #35,000 naira.
For those who are interested in knowing the price in USD, you can get this device at a price ranging from $89 – $95.
