Tecno Phantom 8 Specifications Review

Design & Display

The Phantom 8 comes with a 5.7 inches FHD IPS display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels at 403 pixels per inch. Just like the Phantom 6 and the Phantom 6 plus, this smartphone has a very attractive design. However, its design is quite different from the design of its predecessor. It is glossy and it comes in 3 different colors: Phantom Black, Galaxy Blue and Champagne Gold.

Tecno Phantom 8 Design

The Phantom 8 comes in a full metal unibody with a 5.7 inches screen that is covered with 2.5D glass.  It is a premium looking smartphone that that can compete effectively with more expensive flagships from other popular brands.

The Phantom 8 provides 64GB internal storage space and supports microSD cards of up-to 2TB. Unfortunately, this smartphone does not have a dedicated microSD slot. You will have to choose between having second SIM or increasing storage space using a memory card.

Tecno Phantom 8 runs on Android v7.0 Nougat OS with Tecno’s custom user interface, the Tecno HiOS. Hopefully, Tecno will provide an update to Android v8.0 (Oreo).
