Tecno is probably not a name you expect to see in a list with best as adjective, but the company did launch a couple of decent smart phones in 2013, though most of their products still leaves a lot to be desired. Tecno Phantom A Plus is one of their best efforts of 2013 with a large 5.0-inch HD display and an 8 megapixels camera.
Tecno Phantom A Plus is one of a few entry level Android smart phones in Nigeria to feature a quad-core processor, spotting a 1.2GHz quad-core processor. It ships with 1GB of RAM and Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) and with the current record of Tecno it is unlikely it will be getting any Android upgrades in future, but the price is still sweet. Price >>> N35,000 to N39,000.
