Going for a budget smartphone is, sometimes, the best if you’re not a heavy phone user or game addict.
You can actually get a cheap phone that can handle daily activities with ease and without glitches. This is where Tecno Y2 comes in.
This phone is one of its kind with average specs featuring a dual-core processor and Android KitKat operating system.
The phone is an entry-level smartphone that will handle social media smoothly, offering you a portable screen size that’s pocket-friendly.

There is nothing too spectacular about the phone. It has a small body that is wrapped in a small screen featuring plastic material. The removable panel is smooth with a camera and an LED flashlight.
On the screen, you’ll find a chunk of bezels with three navigation buttons on the bottom while the top has a selfie camera and a stereo speaker for calls.
The Y2 has a small screen size of 4 inches with a screen resolution of 480 x 800 pixels, which is what you’ll mostly find on budget smartphones.
You’ll get a decent viewing from the screen but don’t expect much from it though.
Hardware and Software
On the hood, the Tecno Y2 packs a dual-core Cortex-A7 processor which runs at a maximum speed of 1 GHz. This works alongside a RAM of 512MB.
While this may not deliver a solid performance, the RAM on the inside should be enough to handle low power task.
The operating system taking charge is Android 4.4 KitKat, which is still okay considering the budget status.

Camera and Storage
The main camera is 2 megapixels with an LED flash. The camera will not capture quality photos, but at least, it’s still better than none. Well, you also get another snapper on the front dedicated to selfie lovers. This sensor only has 0.3 megapixels, which is nothing to cheer about.
Using this camera for videos recording should not be your main focus because you won’t get your desired resolution.
The internal memory is 8GB and it has a slot for micro SD card on the inside. You can use it to expand the space but not beyond 32GB.
The removable battery capacity on the Y2 is 1600 mAh. You’d need to charge it 2 to 3 times a day if you’re a heavy user.
It has a dual slot for SIM cards which you can use simultaneously to separate your business contacts and private life.
Instead of 4G LTE, you get a 3G fast network connectivity with WiFi and Bluetooth support. The phone comes preloaded with Facebook, Opera Mini, Palmchat and other regular Apps.
Price and Availability
Tecno Y2 is available in Nigeria and you can buy the phone on any local store at a range of prices depending on your location in the country.
You can also choose to order the phone online on Jumia and it will be delivered straight to your doorstep.
