Tecno P3 is a cheap Android smartphone for consumers on very tight budget. It is more like an upgrade to the popular Tecno N3, coming with similar look and feel, but with a slight specs boost. Tecno P3 features a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen, a 3 megapixels camera at the rear, dual-SIM, and 3G data. Tecno P3 comes with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) running on a 1GHz processor with 512MB RAM.
Cheap Android Smartphone
Tecno P3 targets same audience as the Tecno N3, consumers who want to enjoy modern mobile tech, but can’t afford products from premium brands like Nokia and Samsung. One edge that the Tecno P3 has over the N3, at least from the specs supplied by Tecno, is the addition of a separate graphics processor, which can boost its graphics handling, and could make it better for gaming, etc.
The downside to this could also be the reason why the Tecno P3 can only manage half the battery talktime of the N3 offering just 3.5 hours talktime. It features 1GHz Qualcomm processor and 512MB RAM with Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) inside.
Display & Camera
Tecno P3 features a 3.5-inch touch display with 320 x 480 pixels (Half VGA) resolution. At the rearend of the phone is a 3.0 megapixel camera for capturing those memorable moments. On the frontend is a 0.3 megapixels camera, but don’t get your hopes up, the specs indicates that Tecno P3 does not support video calling, which makes me wonder what the front camera is for.
