Here is a summary of its features. 16GB ROM, 5.7″ Screen, 3500mAh Battery, 8MP Front Camera, Fingerprint Sensor and Android™ 8.1 Oreo. It is the second most affordable Tecno smartphone in Kenya after Tecno F1 which goes for 5,000 shillings. But the price of Tecno POP 3 in Kenya is Ksh 7,300. Find out more about its features in this article.
The name of the Technology itself is “face scan” which helps you speedily unlock your phone. The way it works is this. You register your face when you scan it (feature found in settings). Once that is done the Tecno POP 3 will be able to recognize your face when the phone is locked to unlock it. This feature offers screen fill-light in dark environments to help unlock in low light scenarios. However, I would recommend using the more secure bio-metric fingerprint scanner because one can be shrewdly bypassed. The fingerprint scanner you will find on the back panel.
Here is a phone that adopts an 8MP AI camera with an LED flash to enhance the brightness and clarity of its images. But we all know that an 8MP selfie camera on a phone worth this much can only do too much. And it is for this reason 7 levels beauty mode has been included here to add a natural retouch to the selfie images. The images look okay but I must warn you that they will not look like anything Tecno advertises on POP 3’ web page, not even close. And a rear 5MP rear camera is what you get on the back. Clearly this is a phone for the one who cares more about selfies.
Internal storage of Tecno POP 3 is 16GB and it runs on 1GB of RAM. The phone is also powered with HiOS based on Android™ 8.1 Oreo™ and has a 1.3 GHz clocked Quad-Core CPU. It has a 5.7 inch screen with a meek 480 x 960 pixels resolution. Tecno rightfully calls this display a ‘broad’ – rightfully I say by its price point’s standards. Other features include G-Sensor, front facing flash and 4G network connectivity.
Consider factors such as demands on platform performance and the display size/resolution then you will understand why the 3500mAh battery of Tecno POP 3 lasts so long. Other times this phone will stay active even 2-3 days depending on your usage. Its battery performance will easily satisfy every user of this phone.
