Tecno L8 (5050mAh) Specs & Current Price in Nigeria

Tecno L8 is an affordable phone with features that will “wow” you.

It was launched in April 2016 and some peeps have been comparing it with Gionee Marathon M5.

It’s a double SIM smartphone with luxury metal appearance. The fashionable phone runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop Operating System.

The OS offers several interesting features. It allows you to conveniently enter different apps by just swiping the first letter of the app on the screen.

Tecno L8 features allow you to easily and quickly mute your phone when it rings at a wrong time. Simply turn it around with the screen facing the ground whenever it rings and you wish to stop the sound.

Display and Body

This gorgeous phone has a super-large screen of 5.5 inches which offers you an impressive audio-video experience. The HD touchscreen display comes with a resolution pegged at 1280 x 720 pixels; it showcases high-quality images with bright and vivid colors.

Tecno L8 is a well-crafted smartphone with a stunning design and it sports a sleek bezel of 8.88mm.

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.

It’s available in different colors with a standard dimension of 77.5 x 154 x 8.85 mm.



The phone comes with a specially designed HiOS camera that can be compared to a professional camera – as claimed by the manufacturer. In case you don’t know, HiOS is the new Tecno OS, which aims to offer you a user-friendly experience.

The 8MP rear camera captures high-resolution images. Sitting next to the auto-focus camera is an LED flashlight for capturing bright images in the dark.

It comes with an impressive 2MP front camera that serves as a good tool for selfies and groupies.



Large Battery

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.


Connectivity OTG

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.

    I just discovered that my tecno l8 battery doesn’t last long as it use to before,and its not up to a year now,what might be the cause.

    • April 13, 2017 at 10:57 am

      There are several things that can cause that; brightness, display inactivity time, keypad sound, theme, etc.

      Check to see if there are some background running apps that consume power. You might even be using the phone longer than you use to.

      If everything seems okay, then, your battery may have become weak.

      Hi Samuel,

      You’re welcome. Alternate in what sense?

  • February 13, 2018 at 8:43 am

    OK I mean how do I switch from one sim to the other, assuming I want to make a call from the sim with the enough airtime, or recharge a particular one.

    • February 13, 2018 at 9:39 am

      First, make sure you have both SIM cards inserted and connected.

      Go to your dial list (that place that contains all your incoming and outgoing calls), press the options button and select setting. Go to voice call and set it to always ask. That should solve the problem.
