Another upgrade has come to the Tecno ‘W series’ and this one is called the Tecno W5. It is a big brother to the Tecno W4 smartphone. This smartphone is a budget phone with very fair and commendable specs when related to its price.
I’d be walking you through all its specifications and what I personally, feel about them. I would also be talking on its possible acceptance by the smartphone market. Just stay with me while we move further.
DISPLAY OF THE TECNO W5 SMARTPHONE
The Tecno W5 smartphone features a 5.5 inches display screen, while with a display resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. It is a sure bet to provide a big display for games and movie lovers. I’do forever love a large display smartphone.
As every other smartphone maker have noticed and taken full advantage of, the Tecno W5 supports the 4G LTE network. It possesses a Media-Tek processor, Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A53, while it runs on an Android operating system v6.0 Marshamallow.
RAM AND INTERNAL STORAGE OF THE TECNO W5
Quite disappointing is the fact the the Tecno W5 possesses a mere 1 GB RAM. I sincerely do not want to imagine the performance of this phone and I must say that Tecno disappointed me on this one as they could have done significantly better.
It has an internal storage of just 16 GB which can be expanded to the capacity of 64 GB with the help of a micro SD card. Truth be told, this aspect isn’t encouraging at all.
TECNO W5 CAMERA
Well, you might not be expecting this but the Tecno W5 smartphone has a 13 MP camera quality on its rear, while it features a 5 MP front facing camera.
When brands like Gionee have decided to put selfie lovers on top of the priority list, Tecno is still stuck in the past, thinking selfie cameras are less important than the rear camera. Sheer discrimination of the selfie lovers. A 13 MP camera quality is fair enough for a phone of this caliber though.
TECNO W5 FINGERPRINT SENSOR
It is worthy to note that the Tecno W5 smartphone features a fingerprint scanner, which is a worthy upgrade from its predecessor – the Tecno W4.
TECNO W5 BATTERY
This smartphone packs a battery with a 3000 mAh capacity. Even if this is exactly the baseline we have set for smartphones, I still think Tecno could have gone a little further to stretch this. But then, given the caliber of the phone again, it is still pardonable.
PRICE OF THE TECNO W5 SMARTPHONE
Now, the determinant of its acceptability into the smartphone market is N30,000. The Tecno W5 smartphone launch price is pegged at N30,000. So it’ll range from N30,000 – N35,000 depending on the factor of location.
You ask me what I think about the price, I’d say its fair enough to compete favorably with its peers in the market, except if specs like the 1 GB RAM is to be considered.
