Tecno Phantom 6 Plus

It was towards the end of 2017 that the Tecno Phantom 6 Plus got to hit the market, taking after the very popular line of Tecno’s Phantom 5 and Phantom 6. A phablet, it comes as a great choice for people who may find a tablet too big and a phone too small.

Design of the Phantom 6 Plus

Tecno Phantom 6 Plus

There is a particular design that most Tecno pones have come to take, most especially in the Phantom line. This is not different in any way. However, this is quite large as it has a 6.0-inch LTPS Display.

The make of the phone is metal. The thing though is that while the metal makes it very durable it is not too heavy to become load as you carry about. That said, it has a thickness of 7.7 mm and it comes in Gold color.

In addition to that, with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, the 6 Plus also has a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection for its FHD LTPS touchscreen. In essence, the screen is great as it will not easily break, and the touchscreen is great too.

Looking at security, the phone gives you the option of fingerprint sensor at the rear and an Iris scanner on the front. With this, the security of your phone is almost completely assured.

Memory and Storage of the Phantom 6 Plus

As far as I am concerned, this is another aspect that this phone has got rather very good. The memory is 4GB, which I can assure you that till this day, there are many laptops that still make use of only 2GB of memory. What this means is that with the 4GB, you will have very good functionality and the multitasking abilities will be second to none. Trust me. This is even as it comes with a 2.0 GHz Deca-Core MediaTek Helio processor.

To the storage of the phone, it has an internal memory of 64 GB. Let’s get into perspective here. Tecno Spark, which although is a lesser phone that has got many people talking, has an internal memory of only 16 GB. What this means is that with the memory you get with this, you can at least move earth if you can’t move heaven and hell.

One more thing with the crazy storage it gives is that it also affords you the luxury of having an additional 128GB microSD. Essentially, if you are a movie lover, you can have as much mobile movies as you want.

Camera Performance of the Tecno Phantom 6 Plus

Whether you love taking shots of others and other things, or you love capturing moments in video form, or what you prefer is selfie, this phone also does very good in answering all your needed question. This is true because it comes with a rear camera of 21 MP. More than that, its power is further enhanced by the dual LED flash that it is designed with.

For the front camera, what you get is 8MP and just like the back camera, it also has a flashlight. Because of this, the camera does very good whether it is in the day or at night, and whether selfie or regular shots is what you want to take.

Connectivity

As you will rightly expect, the phone has a very broad connectivity as it is able to give you from 2G network to as high as 4G LTE network connectivity. You also get to have Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Wi-Fi Direct, as well as GPS with A-GPS.

In the same light, the multimedia is great as the video player is excellent and the music player doesn’t drag its feet. The speakers are quite loud, but you will do well by not expecting them to be too loud, because they are not. Instead of being very loud, they offer clarity, and I think you will come to prefer that.

Battery Life of the Phantom 6 Plus

With the battery, this phone is able to offer you as much as 4050 mAh capacity. This makes me wonder if it was not just yesterday that techno phones were coming with 1800 mAh and 3000 mAh at best. Times have changed and although the Phantom 6 plus has capabilities that would require a good battery capacity, what it comes with is very good.

This Li-ion Battery is non-removable, and because of that, you should expect it to last longer than removable batteries.

Pros

  • It has an excellent battery life
  • Great space and battery life.
  • The multimedia and camera are good.
  • Good functionality and easy multitasking.
  • It will serve you well if you love streaming online or if you love gaming.

Cons

  • It is not the cheapest in the market.
  • Not the most latest android version on phones.

Verdict: to buy or not to buy

The Tecno Phantom 6 Plus is a phone that I will advise you to buy once you are able to cough out the money. This is because there is hardly a single department that this phone is lacking in. Whether you need a good battery life, space, great camera, fast response, or even looks, this is a phone to spend your money on. The verdict, therefore, is yes, buy!
