Top 10 Best Tecno Android Phones in Nigeria (October 2013)

Tecno M7 price in Nigeria

In a bid to keep its strong grip on the low-end smartphone market in Nigeria, Tecno keeps churning out new phones at close intervals — days at times.

In this year (2013) alone, the company has released over 10 Android smartphones into the market — and the popular Phantom pad, the company’s first tablet.

Here, we’ve ranked Tecno smartphones in order of overall features and performance. The Tecno F8 tops our list. Read on to see other phones that make the top 10 ranking.

Note that some features are common to all the phones that make this list. These include 2G and 3G connectivity, dual SIM compatibility, microSD slots for memory expansion, as well as light, proximity, and gravity sensors. The specs included for the phones are those that set them apart from each other.

1. Tecno F8 (Phantom A2)

3.75G, 5.7-inch display, Android 4.2 OS (Jelly Bean), 1.2GHz quad core processor, GPU embedded, 1GB RAM, 4GB internal memory, 13MP rear camera, 8MP front camera, 2630mAH Li-Ion battery.

This device, released not long ago, is the biggest and the best of them all. One would be correct to call it the best smartphone ever made by Tecno.

Current price: N45,000

2. Tecno F7 (Phantom A+)

3.75G, 5-inch display, Android 4.2 OS (Jelly Bean), 1.2GHz quad core processor, GPU embedded, 1GB RAM, 4GB internal memory, 8MP rear camera, 1.2MP front camera, 2100mAH Li-Ion battery.

This device is still selling fast. It’s complete in all aspects, but lags behind the F8 in terms of display size, camera, and battery capacity.

Current price: N36,000

3. Tecno M7

3.75G, 5-inch display, Android 4.2 OS (Jelly Bean), 1.2GHz dual core processor, GPU embedded, 1GB RAM, 4GB internal memory, 8MP rear camera, 1.2MP front camera, 2000mAH Li-Ion battery.

Though very new, this device still couldn’t find a place in the first 2 spots because it is powered by a dual core processor, which isn’t as strong as the quad core processor packed by the almighty Phantoms.

Price: N27,500

4. Tecno N7

No 3.75G (only 2G and 3G), 5-inch display, Android 4.0 OS (ICS), 1.0GHz dual core processor, GPU embedded, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal memory, 5MP rear camera, 0.3MP front camera, 2300mAH Li-Ion battery.

Though this device was at the top of the list earlier in the year, the more recent devices have pushed it down to number 4. But that still doesn’t take away the fact that it’s a very good and durable device.

Price: N29,000

5. Tecno M3

3.75G, 3.5-inch display, Android 4.2 OS (Jelly Bean), 1.0GHz dual core processor, GPU embedded, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal memory, 5MP rear camera, 0.3MP front camera, 1400mAH Li-Ion battery.

This is presently the best of the medium sized Android devices by Tecno. Though, it’s battery isn’t as strong as the L3, it is better than the L3 in terms of camera and having 3.75G connectivity.

Price: N15,000

6. Tecno L3

No 3.75G (only 2G and 3G), 3.5-inch display, Android 4.1 OS (Jelly Bean), 1.0GHz dual core processor, GPU embedded, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal memory, 3MP rear camera, 0.3MP front camera, 2400mAH Li-Ion battery.

This device rocks mainly because of its very strong battery.

Price: N15,000

7. Tecno P5

3.75G, 4-inch display, Android 4.2 OS (Jelly Bean), 1.3GHz dual core processor, GPU : MT6572W, 1GB RAM, 4GB internal memory, 1900mAH Li-Ion battery.

Though it has a 4-inch display, this still doesn’t get it a position ahead of M3 and L3 because it lacks 3.75G connectivity and GPU features. But it’s a good buy for those who really need a large display.

Price: N15,800

8. Tecno S3

3.75G, 3.5-inch display, Android 4.2 OS (Jelly Bean), 1.0GHz dual core processor, No GPU, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal memory, 5MP rear camera, 0.3MP front camera, 1400mAH Li-Ion battery.

Also a new device, this smartphone isn’t as impressive as one would expect. In fact, one would wonder why Tecno came up with the device in the first place. It’s good, however, for those who want to use something different from P3, L3, and M3.

Price:

9. Tecno D1

3.75G, 2.6-inch display, Android 4.2 OS (Jelly Bean), 1.0GHz dual core processor, GPU embedded, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal memory, 2MP rear camera, 0.3MP front camera, 1450mAH Li-Ion battery.

This device is occupying the 9th position due to its small display. It’s a great device for those who find it hard to cope with touchscreen keypads, as it features a solid QWERTY keypad.

Price: N16,500

10. Tecno Q1

No 3.75G (only 2G and 3G), 2.6-inch display, Android 4.0 OS (Jelly Bean), 1.0GHz dual core processor, GPU embedded, 512MB RAM, 4GB internal memory, 5MP rear camera, 0.3MP front camera, 1450mAH Li-Ion battery.

This device has similar features with the D1, but lacks 3G connectivity and has small screen display

Price: N17,000

Please note that we have based our rankings on information available on Tecno’s website about each device. Actual values may vary, in which case we are open to corrections.

What’s your take about the ranking? And how would you rate Tecno’s performance in the Nigerian technology market so far?

    Am realy vexd dat M3 rates higher than P5. D only advantage i c dat M3 has over P5 is the 3.75G. P5 tops M3 in every other aspects like d 4.0 display, d 1.3 GHZ Processin speed, d 2.0MP front camera and even d battery life. So y does M3 rate higher

    • admin

      Hi chioma
      Base on Tecno ranking and the manufacturing date, Tecno P5 seems to be higher than Tecno M3. Besides they almost got the same specs but the 3.75G is an edge Tecno P5 have over Tecno M3

  2. Jude

    Please do confirm whether or not the P5 has 3.75G
    Every other review and spec list I’ve seen online (including Tecno’s own site) says it does.

  23. RICHARD ABIYE PHILEMON

    I’ll need the newest Tecno smartphone in Nigeria. Is it Tecno Phantom A2 or there’s a newer and better version? If there’s a newer version, what’s the name? If there is none, then how do i get the Tecno Phantom A2?

    I live at Okrika Local Govt. Area in Rivers State of Nigeria. I need the Phantom A2 to be delivered here in Okrika to me. How possible can that be and how is the payment deal carried out? Please reply as I’m in desperate need of the phone.

    Thank you!

    • admin

      Hello Richard
      There are a lot of Tecno Android phones that came after the release of Tecno Phantom A2, thus Tecno Phantom A2 is not the most recent but it’s still the most expensive for now. Tecno M5 and D7 are the newly released ones. Kindly call 08084667600, 08098597005 to place your order. Currently we don’t have payment on delivery in Okrika, so you have to make payment before we ship out your phone. Delivery charge is N2,000 and our delivery outside of Lagos and Abuja takes only 24 hours maximum.

    Very good work. How recent was this comparison done? What about the Phantom A3? Are there any other Tecno phones not included in this survey? Many thanks.

      Hi Linda,

      Tecno S3 is preferable, though they have much difference but S3 has a higher OS.
