Display and Camera
This phone is fitted with a 5-inch touch display with a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels.
With this touchscreen based on IPS technology, you could expect to enjoy decent wide-angle viewing. A pixel density of about 294 pixels per inch should ensure images come out sharp enough.
On the camera front, the Tecno W4 is fitted with a combo of an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel selfie camera.
The primary camera supposedly features autofocus and flashlight to boost the quality of shots taken.
Hardware and Software
The Tecno W4 offers just about what you will expect of a smartphone in its range these days.
Under the hood is a quad-core MediaTek processor running along at speeds of up to 1.3 GHz. This is backed by 1 GB of RAM, which somewhat moderates the realistic level of multitasking to expect.
Onboard storage capacity of 16 GB looks sufficient and is also expandable by another 64 GB using a microSD card.
The most interesting thing about the Tecno W4 is that it runs on the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, promising users access to the best of features and capabilities on the Google platform.
Juice will be provided to the Tecno W4 by a 2,500mAh battery, which looks like one to support decently long hours of battery runtime.
The phone is said to be compatible with both 3G and 4G networks, but it is a bit doubtful that the later will be supported here – you just never know, though.
The Tecno W4 also sports the usual connectivity options such as Bluetooth, Wi-FI and GPS in the package as well.
Pricing and availability
Tecno W4 is available in Nigeria and Kenya. You can buy the Android smartphone at leading online stores in both countries. Tecno W4 Price in Nigeria ranges from 28,500 to 35,000 Naira depending on your location in the country. Price in Kenya starts at around KSh 8900.
