Tecno Boom J5


Build and Display

Showing off a plastic body, the Tecno Boom J5 comes in thicker than its predecessor at 9.5 inches. The design is decent for a smartphone at this price point, but it is not the best that could be.

Compared to the Boom J7, the Tecno Boom J5 sports a smaller IPS capacitive touchscreen measuring 4.5-inch diagonally.

The display has a budget-class resolution of 480 x 854 pixels for a pixel density of 218 pixels per inch, meaning it is less sharp in comparison to the one on its predecessor.

Camera and Storage

There is a slight downgrade in the camera department of the Tecno Boom J5. The main camera comes with a less powerful 5-megapixel sensor with LED flash, autofocus and HDR. But the selfie camera uses the same 2-megapixel sensor.

Same ample storage capacity of 16 GB is provided here and you will still be able to add up to 32 GB extra storage with a microSD card.

Power and Performance

Tecno Boom J5 is equipped with a quad-core MediaTek MT65820 processor, which delivers speeds of up to 1.3 GHz.

Paired with 1 GB of RAM, the Cortex-A7 CPU should enable decent multitasking, but you should not expect too much in terms of performance.

Interestingly, the Tecno Boom J5 uses Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system, compared to its more expensive brother which was equipped with Android 4.4 KitKat.

Juice is provided by a slightly smaller 1950mAh Lithium-Ion battery, which should still do a good job when you consider the smaller screen size and lower screen resolution.

Other Features

With inbuilt dual-SIM functionality, Tecno Boom J5 is designed to let you separate different aspects of your life, say, work and family. Connectivity features include microUSB 2.0, Bluetooth, 3G and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with Wi-Fi Direct and hotspot.

Pricing and availability

Tecno Boom J5 is available in Nigeria. You can buy the music-focused smartphone at leading online stores in Nigeria. Tecno Boom J5 Price in Nigeria ranges from N30,000 to N39,000 depending on your location in the country.
