Tecno F1 Specs & Latest Price in Nigeria

Tecno Mobile finally rocks Google’s boat in bringing on the next billion by introducing the Tecno F1 – a low budget smartphone sporting a specially optimized software for improved performance.

Google plans to bring more people to the internet by introducing a specially optimized software for improved performance in low budget smartphones.

Tecno F1 is amongst the Tecno’s first smartphone to sport the latest Android Oreo version 8.1 (Go Edition). Therefore, expect a device with an acceptable performance.

Thinking of getting the Tecno F1?

Follow me in this review as I talk about everything you will want to know about the phone. Including its pros and cons.

Let’s begin.

 

Design and Display

Tecno F1 features an all plastic body design and looks like the Tecno F2.

The rear features a 5MP camera and a dual flash located at the right-hand corner. Moving down a little, you’ll find the Tecno logo embossed horizontally on the rear cover.

Aside from the camera, dual flash, and Tecno logo, the rear is pretty plain. There’s no fingerprints sensor.

Tecno F2 specs & price

At the right-hand side, you’ll find the volume button as well as the power button.

The front features a massive 5 inches, IPS LCD touchscreen display screen, which I believe is more than enough for any Android user. But sadly I cannot say the same for the display resolution as it comes with a meager 480 x 854 pixels.

I believe Tecno actually reduced the display resolution to keep costs down. But, really, something more than the 480 x 854 pixels would have been better. However, considering the low price of the device, the display is something we can easily forgive.

Camera

It sports a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP selfie camera.

If you understand how phone cameras works then you probably understand that the F1 cameras are low grade.

 

Performance

The performance is quite impressive. Considering that the F1 sports a 512MB RAM and a low-end quad-core MediaTek MT6580 CPU.

The high-end performance of the device is justified by its Android software. It runs on the latest Android Oreo version 8.1 Go Edition.

The Go Edition has been specially optimized to run on low-end smartphones, particularly ones with less than 1GB RAM like the Tecno F1 sporting a 512MB RAM.

Battery Life

it features a 2000mAh removable battery. This battery should be able to give up to 5 hours standby time with browsing using 3G network. For less work, you should be able to get up to a day standby time.

 

Verdict

The Tecno F1, aside from its poor camera and RAM, is what you should expect from a budget phone.

If you’re looking for a smartphone but don’t want to spend much, then this is a good choice. Or consider going for the F2. Though, the major difference between both is the RAM size. 512MB on F1 and 1GB on F2.
