It comes with a 6-inch display and a more powerful processor, but with the same battery capacity which could result in a lower battery life compared to the Phantom A2. Tecno Phantom A3 runs on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) with 1GB RAM. Checkout the Tecno Phantom 8

The Hardware & Software
Looking at the specs the Tecno Phantom A3 seems like a needless upgrade to the Phantom A2. The phone may boast of a processor upgrade from 1.2GHz quad-core to 1.5GHz quad-core processor, but by retaining Android 4.2 (instead of at least Android 4.3 or even Android 4.4), we struggle to see the competitive edge of the Phantom A3.
Except you fancy the large 6.0-inch display, there are very little reason to favour the Phantom A3 over the Phantom A2. The included gyroscope may also give it some edge in gaming. It ships with 1GB RAM and 16GB built-in storage.
Display & Camera
Tecno Phantom A3 features a large 6-inch IPS display with half HD resolution (720 x 1280 pixels). It has a 13 megapixels camera with LED Flash, autofocus and 720p HD video recording on the back and a front-facing 8 MP camera for videocalling and possibly self-portraits.
Price & Availability
Tecno Phantom A3 is available in Nigeria and you can buy online or at phone stores near you. Tecno Phantom A3 price in Nigeria ranges from N47,500 to N55,000 depending on your location in the country.
