Tecno Phantom 6 Review
Design & Display
As stated earlier, the Tecno Phantom is 6 is a very beautiful phone. It is only 6.15mm thick. This makes it one of the slimmest phones in the market. This handset has a full metal body. It comes in two colors: Anthracite Gray and Champagne Gold. At 6.15mm, it is thinner than its predecessor, the Phantom 5 (6.8mm). The screen is 5.5 inches. The Phantom 6 has Gorilla Glass 3 protection. This makes the phone’s screen resistant to physical damage.
On the back side, there is the dual back camera system and a fingerprint sensor just below the camera. The earphone port is at the top of the smartphone while the speakers and USB type C port are at the bottom. The function keys (home & back) are on the screen.
The 5.5 inch AMOLED display is awesome. It displays crystal clear images with accurate colors. It is a good screen to watch videos on. This screen allows the user to view displayed content easily while outdoors on a sunny day.
Software, Hardware & Performance
The Tecno Phantom 6 runs on Android v6.0 Marshmallow with HiOS UI on top. HiOS 1.1.0 helps to create a new unique look. There is a number of themes that can be used to personalize the phone. You can easily customize your phone to make it reflect your style & preferences.
This phone is undoubtedly one of the most powerful devices from Tecno Mobile. It has MTK Helio P10 CPU clocking at 2GHz. This 64 bit octacore processor is supported by 3GB of RAM. There is no lagging when a dozen apps are running at the same time. If you are a gamer, you should expect a no-lag experience when you having fun on this device.
This phone provides plenty of storage space. Its 32GB internal storage space is enough for applications music, videos and other things that you may want to keep in your phone. If this space is not enough, you can use a micro SD card to expand it by up to 128GB.
This phone has 3 cameras. On the back, there is a 13MP camera & a 5MP camera. The front facing camera is 8MP. The two cameras on the back work together to capture higher quality images. The rear dual camera system is amazing. The dual LED flash on the back makes it possible to capture high quality images in low light situations. The Phantom 6 is a very good choice are looking for a versatile camera phone.
The Tecno Phantom 6 gets it power from a 2770mAh battery. Well, this battery can take an average user through the day. However, if you are a heavy user, you may have to recharge it at some point in the middle of the day. Fortunately, 10 minutes of charge will provide up to 124 minutes of talk-time. You can always use the Ultra Power Saving Mode to get a few extra hours.
This phone does not have a fingerprint scanner. Like the Tecno Camon C9, it has an iris scanner. The iris scanner adds an extra layer of security by allowing you to unlock your phone using your eyes.
