Tecno Phantom Pad Mini (P9): Review Specs and Price in Nigeria

Tecno Phantom Pad Mini P9 Nigeria

If you’re not too comfortable with 8-inch and 10.1-inch tablets and would prefer something smaller, then the new Tecno P9 Phantom Pad mini is a device you’ll definitely love.

This device, as described by Tecno, is a perfect workmate and life companion that not only embraces function endowed by a tablet, but also works well as a giant smartphone.

Call the P9 a tablet, and you’d be right. Call it a smartphone — a giant one — and you still won’t go wrong. It’s just one great combo that promises to make your life easier.

In this post, we’ll be looking at the various features and specifications of the Tecno Phantom Pad Mini (or Tecno P9). Also, we’ll be comparing it with its predecessor, the Tecno Phantom Pad N9, wherever we deem necessary.

Design

The Tecno Phantom P9 mini pad comes in a sleek design that makes it pass for a high end tablet. Slightly thinner and smaller than the Phantom N9 tablet, the P9 has most of its front surface taken up by the 7-inch display, under which lie four control buttons.

On the backside of the device, the primary camera peeps out of the top left corner, flanked a little to the right by its flash. The rest of this surface is plain, but for the name “TECNO” written some centimeters above the center.

The slightly curved, thinned out edges of the device make it very easy to handle.

Display

The Tecno Phantom Pad Mini P9 spots a 7-inch IPS capacitive display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. Though this display size is slightly smaller than the 8-inch display of the Phantom Pad N9, the resolution is better than the N9′s 1024 x 768 pixels.

If you’re lost on what a 7-inch display looks like, think of the screen size of the small Samsung Galaxy Tab (7.0) or the Infinix Joypad, and you’d get a perfect match.

OS and Performance

The Tecno Phantom Pad Mini P9 runs on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean). The device is powered by a 1.2GHz MT8389 quad-core processor with a GPU for effective graphics handling. These specifications are exactly what obtained with the Phantom N9. So, in the aspects of OS and processor speed, it’s a draw between both devices.

Memory

While the Phantom Pad N9 comes with 1GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory, the new Phantom Pad Mini P9 comes with the same 1GB of RAM, but 8GB of internal memory. And as expected, the device comes with a microSD slot for memory expansion.

Camera

Just like the Phantom Pad N9, the Tecno Phantom Pad Mini flaunts two cameras — a 5MP rear-facing camera and a 2MP front-facing camera for video calling. Here again, it’s no winner, and no vanquished.

However, since the P9 has a sharper display than its predecessor, expect to see clearer images than what you would get with a Phantom Pad N9.

Battery

The Tecno Phantom Pad Mini is packed with a 4000mAh battery, which, according to Tecno, would last a long as 8 hours with moderate usage. With lighter usage, however, the device can deliver for even longer.

Though the battery has a lower rating when compared with the N9′s 4500mAh battery, the fact that the P9 has a smaller display means both devices would last for roughly the same duration.

In all…

The Tecno P9 is a great device. It’s cheap, portable, sleek, and light. And it beats the Tecno N9 in the aspect of display, while it bows to it in the aspects of internal memory and display size. Aside these three major differences, all other specs in both products are the same.

Price

For now, the Tecno P9 Phantom Pad Mini is yet to be available at the Parktel Online Store. But it will be available very soon. Expect a price tag of between N25,000 to N28,000.

In brief, here are the specs of the Tecno Phantom P9 Mini:

  • Display: 7-inch IPS capacitive touchscreen display (1200 x 800 pixels)
  • Connectivity: 2G, 3G, 3.75G
  • OS: Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean)
