Display: 6.9-inch IPS LCD | Refresh rate: 120Hz | Resolution: 1080 x 2460 pixels | Processor: MediaTek Dimesnity 900 5G | RAM: 8GB | Storage: 128GB | Battery Capacity: 6000mAh | OS: Android 11 | Price: ₦147,000 ($248)
A solid battery capacity is what you can’t put away in any Tecno’s mobile phone no matter the price or size. The Tecno Pova 5G didn’t make any compromises in its battery despite having a 5G capability, offering a 6000mAh battery which is incredibly awesome. It’s one of the biggest battery capacities we’ve seen on a Tecno phone. This smartphone comes with a 6.9-inch screen, alongside a 120Hz of refresh rate.
The Tecno Pova 5G main camera has a 50MP triple camera while the front comes with a 16MP sensor. This Tecno latest Pova device is also reliable when it comes to performance, packing a Mediatek Dimensity 900 chipset paired with an 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

Tecno Pova Neo
Display: 6.8-inch IPS LCD | Refresh rate: 120Hz | Resolution: 720 x 1640 pixels | Processor: MediaTek Helio G25 | RAM: 4GB /6GB | Storage: 64GB /128GB | Battery Capacity: 6000mAh | OS: Android 11 | Price: ₦77,000 ($130)
The Tecno Pova Neo is designed for those who put price and battery capacity first before buying a phone because it exceeded in both. This is the smaller version of the new Tecno Pova Series. This phone comes with a 6000mAh battery which you’ll hardly find in another phone of the same price range.
If you might think that’s not enough reason to consider this phone, the Tecno Pova Neo has a 6.8-inch HD+ screen, 4GB /6GB of RAM and 64GB /128GB built-in storage, a dual-camera setup of 13MP main shooter and 8MP selfie camera. Also, the Pova Neo comes with some impressive features which you might be interested in.
As long as the price is concerned you have to expect some compromises in this phone, meaning that Tecno has cut corners elsewhere. The Pova Neo lacks a 5G network connectivity, though that’s not a big problem since the 4G LTE here is also reliable. The Mediatek Helio G25 chipset is known to be an old processor. If you’re satisfied with what the Tecno Pova Neo has brought to the table depending on what you need from it, then you’re getting a capable smartphone without paying much.

Tecno Pouvoir 4
Display: 7-inch IPS LCD | Refresh rate: No | Resolution: 720 x 1640 pixels | Processor: MediaTek Helio A22 | RAM: 3GB | Storage: 32GB | Battery Capacity: 6000mAh | OS: Android 10 | Price: ₦70,000 ($116)
The Tecno Pouvoir 4 was launched as a smartphone that can offer you decent performance for your day-to-day activities. The Pouvoir 4 comes with a 7-inch screen which has a resolution of 720 x 1640 pixels, a 13MP camera, 6000mAh battery, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
Looking at the specs of the Tecno Pouvoir 4, it seems unimpressive. Though it’s hard to label these specs as a “great camera” or “gorgeous display”, but when you look at the price, you will definitely complain no more. Besides getting a smartphone with a 6000mAh battery below $120 is a wise bargain. For this cheaper price, the Tecno Pouvoir 4 is undoubtedly one of the best entry-level smartphones you can get this year. However, we find the Pova Neo better than the Pouvoir 4 even though they both sell at almost the same price.

Tecno Spark 8C
Display: 6.60-inch IPS LCD | Refresh rate: No | Resolution: 720 x 1612 pixels | Processor: Unisoc Tiger T606 | RAM: 2GB / 3GB /4GB | Storage: 32GB /64GB | Battery Capacity: 5000mAh | OS: Android 11 (Go Edition) | Price: ₦65,000 ($108)
The Tecno Spark 8C is an entry-level phone with decent specs. It has similar specs to the Tecno Spark Go 2022 but has a slight price difference. The phone is powered by a 5000mAh battery which we consider average but doesn’t matter considering its price.
Fortunately, the Spark 8C has one of the best mid-range designs in 2023, flaunting a plastic body with a large square camera module. When it comes to performance, the Tecno Spark 8C will offer you the best experience without any lag or system malfunction so far you don’t push it beyond the limit. However, we consider the Tecno Spark 8C a great mid-range phone if you can do without its several shortcomings.

Tecno Spark 7

The Tecno Spark 7 is a smartphone everyone will definitely like to use if not for its cheaper price, its qualities have attracted many buyers and are possibly one of the best entry-level smartphones we’ve seen so far. For such a smartphone to receive all this hype from us, there must something special about this phone and it’s nothing but a huge 6,000mAh battery which we doubt any other smartphone can offer.
From a stylish design to a big 6.52-inch screen with impressive resolutions. A 2GB of RAM with 32GB of internal storage depending on your choice since there are other storage versions for this phone. 16MP main camera for taking photos and 8MP for selfies. The Tecno Spark 7 has offered lots of interesting things which we haven’t seen from most smartphones at the same price segment. We consider it a better alternative to the Spark 8C if you can slightly increase your budget.

They’re the perfect definition of quality, durability, and reliability without an expensive price tag. The Pop 6 Go 4G is the cheapest phone on our list and we consider it a great entry-level phone.
The Tecno Pop 6 Go 4G is a smartphone everyone will love to buy if not for its cheaper price, but for its superb quality that has attracted the interest of many Tecno lovers.
