Bezels are found all around the phone. With HD+ resolution, this phone shows you videos in a great way. The display does not disturb even while playing games.
Even if you are in direct sunlight, you can read the phone screen easily. Apart from the looks of the iPhone, it has a dynamic port feature like the Dynamic Island of the iPhone. In this you get notifications like battery, charging etc. However, this feature was turned off in our phone. Panda Glass protection has been provided to protect the display.
Chipset and OS: Techno has supported Unisoc T606 chipset in this phone. This chipset works well for messaging, music, video, social media etc. This phone can cause trouble during multitasking and gaming. It is being claimed that this is the first phone with 8GB RAM in a phone priced below Rs 7 thousand.
However, you have to keep in mind that this phone has 4GB RAM, apart from this there is 4GB virtual RAM. Only then does this phone fulfill its claim of 8GB RAM. The phone has 64GB internal storage, which you can expand with a microSD card.
Talking about the operating system, this phone works on HiOS 13 based on Android 13 Go. Many apps are pre-installed in the phone, but these are not third party apps. There are apps like Facebook, which you can uninstall if you want. The phone is easy to operate, and can be easily customized.
Camera: This phone has a 12MP+AI rear camera setup. An 8MP front camera has been provided for video calls and selfies. You can do better photography than this during the day. However, the 12MP camera is not that good in terms of sharpness and color.
This increases the difficulty of taking photos in the dark. But when the price is remembered, the camera quality is understood. Still, its camera features could have been further improved.
Battery: For power backup, Techno Pop 8 will have a 5000mAh battery. On full charge, this phone can easily last for more than a day. If you play games or stream videos, you may need to charge twice a day. The performance of the battery has impressed us a lot.
This phone is charged with 10W charging. Therefore it takes a lot of time to charge. This phone takes two and a half to three hours to charge from 0 to 100 percent. You can understand that charging your phone can make you tired. But the battery performance compensates for this shortcoming.
Tecno Pop 8: USP
