A speaker sits at the bottom of the back cover. The speaker is designed to be scratch resistant so that it produces vivid sound even when the speaker is facing down.

Battery life means a lot to every smartphone user. This is why Tecno L8 houses a large capacity battery of 5050mAh.
The manufacturer claims that the battery can power your device for up to 3 days. Given the battery capacity, I believe the claim – depending on how you use it, though.
Tecno-mobile really cares about the battery life of your device. The company has equipped the device with a specially designed button to enter the ultra power saving mode with a click.
The company collaborated with ATL to offer you an energy efficient high-density battery, which is twice an ordinary battery.
Tecno L8 features USB OTG (On-The-Go) which allows you to connect other devices, via the USB port, for additional functionalities.
Keep in touch with family and friends on social media with the 3G network which the smartphone offers.
The device also offers Wi-Fi as an alternative for wireless internet connection.
Storage and Hardware
With an internal storage of 16 GB, this device provides a large space to store your files.
The device is powered by a 1.3 GHz Quad Core processor that combines with a 1 GB RAM to give you an effortless multi-tasking experience. But don’t get too confident and run too many apps at the same time.
