Tecno Phantom 8

Design and Display

The Tecno Phantom 8 doesn’t look too bad for something to rub shoulders with heavyweights such as the Samsung Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8. It sports a metallic chassis with an alluring 3D ‘Diamond Fire Design’ for a premium touch. The edges are curvy and the overall profile is rather svelte at 7.9 millimetres.

Tecno Phantom 8 sports a 5.7-inch IPS display with Full HD resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels. You may expect slightly sharper images than what the predecessor offered. There is robust Corning Gorilla Glass to protect against scratches.

The Cameras

This again joins the bandwagon of flagships rocking dual rear cameras. Tecno Phantom 8 combines a 12MP sensor with a 13MP sensor for greater image depth and quality. You get Tri-LED flash, autofocus and 10X zoom among the shot features.

Bright selfies are on the card with this one. There is an amazing 20MP camera with dual-LED flash on the front. Selfie lovers are sure going to love this!

Hardware and Software

Apps and games will run with practically no glitches on the Tecno Phantom 8. This is because it boasts an octa-core MediaTek Helio P25 processor that gets support from generous 6GB RAM. The system memory is the company’s best ever.

For storage, you get 64GB space on the inside. This is expandable by jaw-dropping 2 TB using a microSD card. The Tecno Phantom 8 ships with Android 7.0 Nougat sporting HiOS 3.0 skin – this is a tad disappointing. But there’s promise of upgrade.
