If you’re looking for a cheap android phone with amazing features, then look nowhere else.
Tecno WX3, WX3 LTE, and WX3 Pro are entry-level phones that are specially designed for Android lovers with a low budget.
The phones run on Android 7.0 Nougat, which offers several awesome features. Owning any of the variants is like having an upgraded version of 2014, 2015, or 2016 budget phones.
This article is a comparison between the 3 variants. The one you eventually choose depends on your needs and lifestyle. Personally, I’d go for the pro version.

Basically, the 3 variants are the same except for the few differences outlined below.
WX3: 3G connectivity and 2500mAh battery
WX3 LTE: 4G connectivity and 2500mAh battery
WX3 Pro: 3G connectivity and 5000mAh battery
The phones have a slim body with a texture that feels smooth in the palm of your hands. Any of the variants can be easily held and operated in one hand.
The display is 5-inch with a minimal resolution of 480 x 854 pixels. Of course, you wouldn’t expect anything spectacular from an entry-level device. There are different color variants but they’re mostly available in grey.
Software and Hardware
Apart from being pre-installed with Android 7.0 Nougat, the devices are also equipped with Hi Manager. This is a personal assistant technology that clears cache, boosts speed and manages apps on a single tap.
Each variant processes your request using a quad-core processor that’s clocked at 1.3GHz. This is enough to get data processed as quickly as possible.
The processor collaborates with 1GB RAM to offer a fairly hitch-free multi-tasking experience. A 2GB RAM is a better choice for seamless multi-tasking.
Since your device carries a 1GB RAM, you’ll have to minimize the number of apps you run simultaneously at any particular point in time. This way, you’ll enjoy your phone even more.
The Same Feature Found in Tecno Camon C9
They’re designed with a similar feature found in Camon C9. They offer you a smart control feature by swiping a letter on the screen in the screen-off mode to instantly enter a particular app.
For example, swipe “C” to access the camera. Don’t worry, you can customize the shortcuts to suit the particular apps you use frequently.
They also come with the air gesture feature that allows you to answer or end a call without touching your phone. Swipe to the left to answer a call or swipe to the right to end a call.
None of the variants may be a good fit for you if you’re a picture freak. Although the front and back cameras are accompanied by an LED flash, they may not produce well-detailed images.
Both cameras are pegged at 5MP. The front cameras may produce fairly acceptable images. But don’t expect anything outstanding from the back cameras.
You don’t have to worry much if you’ll be taking more of selfies. Even some mid-range phones with good cameras are designed with 5MP front cameras. Pixel size isn’t the best measure of camera quality in all cases, though.
