Build and Display

Unsurprising for what is expected to be a budget device, the Tecno L8 parades a plastic body. However, the smartphone has a metal-appearance that gives it a premium look. It has a thickness of 8.85 millimetres which is a bit on the thick side.

Tecno L8 sports a huge 5.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. This offers ample screen estate, but a pixel density of about 267 ppi could have been better for more immersive wide-angle viewing.

Camera and Storage

In terms of cameras, the Tecno L8 packs a combo of 8-megapixel rear-facing shooter and a 2-megapixel selfie snapper. The main camera features LED flash, autofocus and HDR to improve shot quality.

The onboard storage capacity of 16 GB should suffice for handling thousands of photos, songs, videos and apps. The storage is also expandable using a microSD card.

Performance and OS

The Tecno L8 is decked out to deliver the level of performance you’d ordinarily expect from most low mid-range smartphones these days. It is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz.

This is assisted for manageable multitasking by lowly 1 GB of RAM. The decision to run this phone on Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system may not go down well with some buyers, but this is a budget device after all.

Other Features

The headline feature of the Tecno L8 is that it comes equipped with a colossal 5050 mAh Li-Ion battery which, on paper, looks like one to offer long runtime. You can extend battery life with a dedicated button for triggering a power saver mode.

The Tecno L8 supports dual-SIM feature, but it appears buyers won’t be getting LTE support. Standard connectivity options such as Bluetooth, 3G and Wi-Fi are onboard. USB OTG is supposedly supported as well.

Pricing and availability

Tecno L8 is now available in Nigeria and Kenya. You can buy the smartphone at leading online stores in Nigeria and Kenya. Tecno L8 Price in Nigeria ranges from N35,000 to N45,000 depending on your location in the country. Price in Kenya starts at around KSh 11,000.
