Tecno M3: Review and Specs

Tecno M3

While Nigerians haven’t finished admiring the L3, Tecno released yet another low-end, but irresistible  and feature-packed Android smartphone, the Tecno M3. Though it packs a less powerful battery than that of the L3, it beats its most recent predecessor in a many other aspects.

In this post, we’ll be looking at the features and specifications of the Tecno M3, and we’ll be comparing it to its brothers where necessary.

Design and display

Though the casing of most Tecno devices is made of plastic, the company hasn’t been faring badly in the area of design. And the M3 is just another proof of this. The device has a moderate shape, just like the P3.

Looking at the backside of the phone, the only features that make it different from the P3 are the camera and speaker openings. The M3’s camera is shaped like a square with curved edges, while the P3 has a round camera. And the P3 has a horizontal slit for the speaker, as against the sieve-like opening at the back of the P3.

Performance, processor, and memory

Tecno M3 runs on Android 4.2 (Gingerbread), and it is packed with a 1 GHz dual core processor and 512MB of RAM. Frankly, this combination is a bit disappointing. One would expect this phone to have 1GB of RAM as an improvement over the P3.

The M3 has 4GB of internal memory, which is a big improvement over the P3’s 512MB. And you can expand this to up to 32GB using a micro SD card. The device comes with a free 8GB memory card, though.


This is one of the selling points of the Tecno M3. For the first time, a Tecno low-end smartphone features a Polaroid with a resolution of 5 megapixels. And there’s a secondary camera in front, too.

In all…

The M3 may not have many reasons to set it wide apart from the P3 and L3, but it runs games and apps more smoothly and packs more internal memory — which means you won’t get those frustrating “low memory” notifications anytime soon.

Here are the full specs of the Tecno M3:

  • Dimensions: 115.3 x 61.2 x 11.9
  • Display: 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen
  • Networks: 2G, 3G
  • OS: Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean)
  • Processor: 1GHz dual core processor
  • Camera: 5MP rear camera, front camera
  • Memory: 1GB RAM, 4GB internal memory
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth, USB, WiFi, WiFi hotspot
  • Battery: 1400 mAh Li-Ion

    i bought a Tecno M3 yesterday and i’ve noticed that the fone doesn’t respond unless i insert two sims, detecting sim(s) is a problem besides the phone keeps locking me out. Infact, I borrowed a fone to send this comment because the phone is locked.
    Again, the keypad clicking when typing a message drives me nuts. Is there a way I can turn it off? Thank you.

    • admin

      Remove the battery, and restart the phone, if it continues take it to a Tecno Repair centre, all Tecno phones come with one year warranty.

      many factors contribute to low battery on phones most times; Always check the following, it will help boost your battery life
      .make sure the bluetooth\wifi\hostspot is switched off when not in use
      .Reduce the timeout duration
      .Reduce the brightness also
      .Always make sure that no program is running in the background.
      .once in a while, let the battery go flat down before charging it. is a way of maintanining the battery life’s span

      Of course, we didn’t say the battery isn’t good. We only stated that it doesn’t last as long as that of the L3.

        • admin

          Upon usage your battery cells get weak. This could result to reduced battery spam. However there are other factors that determine how long your battery stay. Kindly follow this link and this for battery saving tips.,

    Pls i bought this M3 product but just over a week the bluetooth and wifi are not functioning. they power on but cant be found by other devices or see other devices although initially they worked and the bluetooth is set to visible to all devices. I want to know if something was altered or its a software problem

    • admin

      i can’t decipher what the problem might be since you’ve set the bluetooth to be visible to all. Backup your files and do a factory reset. if the issue persist take it to Tecno care office they will fix it free of charge.

  38. Lucky

    Hello Admin. Thanks for all the insightful replies to our questions. Pls,let me ask: Is it for real that Tecno M3 has a poor screen display when compared with Tecno L3,poor image quality, poor brightly-lit flash,and the inability to display HD games like Asphalt and Spiderman? Pls reply sir. I really need a swiftly reply that will guide whether I should go for it or not. Thanks!

    • admin

      Hi lucky
      Both Tecno L3 and Tecno M3 has a screen resolution of 320×480. So to say there is little or no difference in the display features. Both phones can play HD games too. The major difference between M3 and L3 is the battery capacity. That is, Tecno L3 has a strong battery life than Tecno M3.

  40. Lucky

    Thanks a lot sir. I really appreciate.

  41. Lucky

    Ok. What about the LCD flash of Tecno M3 sir? Is it as bright as L3?

  42. Ojeba

    To deactivate keypad typing tone/vibration on TECNO M3:
    Go to “settings“
    Scroll down and select
    “Language and input“
    Select the option in front of “Android keyboard“
    “Sound on keypress“ & “Vibrate on keypress“ if u dont need the vibration.

      Hi Ojeba
      Thanks for the info.

  43. Epitomedamsel

    It is so disheartening.. I bought my tecno L3 August 16th. Mistakely fell, d screen got damage n d phone refused to cum up after few mins.. Took it to tecno office in October 14th n dey said it will cost me 6,900 naira to repair it … I wonder wat d one year warrantly’s for, wen der is no discount at all talkless of repairing it free..

    • admin

      Hi Epitomedamsel
      Basically Tecno Warranty covers only factory problem. Physical damage like yours, attracts a little fee. Though N6,900 sounds expensive it also depends on the level of damage the phone has.

  44. Anthony Onos

    Thanks for the service you are rendering here. Its sure helpful, pls i complained about my tecno m3 having a problem of bluetooth and wifi not working jus about two weeks after purchase. i went to the tecno shop in warri(@robson plaza) but they said they are not collecting phones because some they sent earlier to lagos are not yet back. I have been hanging since then. What should be my next course of action? because i cant fully utilize the phone as there’s a possibility of it being replaced if the problem cant be fixed. And pls wheres their office in Lagos?

    • admin

      Hi Anthony
      Tecno P5 has a battery capacity of 1800mAh while Tecno M3 has a battery capacity of 1400mAh. Thus Tecno P5 is expected to last longer than M3. Current price of Tecno P5 is N15,800.

      Hi samsom,
      I don’t really understand your question, but if you delete an app you didn’t back up. You can always dowload it again or collect from a friend. If it’s a system app, you can collect it from your friend’s rooted phone.

    How do i stop the shutter sound on the camera of my Tecno M3?

    • admin

      Hi Judith
      The only way to stop the camera sound on your Tecno M3 is by deleting the current camera sound from your phone system media files. For you to be able to do this, your phone must be rooted in order to access your device internal system files.

  57. Gina

    tanx for the previous question u answered. My next question is dat my techno p5 use to be hot when charging it. Is it normal? Or is it a problem

    • admin

      Hi Gina
      If your phone is hot while charging; it’s either you are making use of it whilst charging or the current(voltage) in use is not suitable for it. Mostly, Generator current do cause this kind of issue. Is not normal. Quick Tip: When your phone is hot, remove the battery and power it again before you continue the charging.

    • admin

      Hello Kephar
      Your Tecno phones vibrate when someone picks your call – it’s just way of alerting you. To disable this function either put your phone on silent or put off the phone vibration in the profile setting,though i see no need for that. To choose a ringtone for any of your sim goto Setting >sound >voice call ringtone and choose your preferred ringtone for any of the sim

    • admin

      Hi Nikesh
      By rebooted, you mean you whiped the phone? If so, try to power the phone by holding both the power button and the volume key simultaneously. For your battery, so long as the battery can fit-in in your Tecno M3 -No Problem.

    please what is beside d front camera. please reply its kinda urgent. thank u

      That is the ambient light sensor – For use when you set screen brightness to auto. it keeps your screen brightness as compared to outside brightness, thus save battery with low screen brightness in dark or indoors.

      Hello Master P
      Kindly make sure that you have triggered the bluetooth in way that it can be detected by other device. This can be done to most bluetooth by: press and hold the power button for sometime, then release it to trigger the sensor, so it can be detected by other device.

    gud day admin my phone always open apps by itself making my ba3 to drain fast n wasting my megabyte. Hw can i stop dis.

    • admin

      Hello Tega
      That’s quit unusual, which app opens on it’s own? However you can always stop a running app through the app manager in the settings. Open settings > hit apps > hit running apps and disable the one you which to stop.

  82. Arthurmiles

    Hi admin, can u experiment for m3 users whether L3 ba3 fits & works well in m3 phones coz m3 ba3 is just spoiling ma xmas moods. Regards as we urgently await ur positive feedback

    • admin

      Hello Arthurmiles
      Sorry i can’t possibly do that now.However if Tecno L3 battery can fit into Tecno M3 perfectly, then it’s most likely to work on it.

  83. Arthurmiles

    Wat other options does tecno propriator avail m3 users coz m3 ba3 lasts roughly 2 hours wen in constant use yet some of us are always in d field with no time for recharging yet calls r always coming in

    • admin

      Hello Arthurmiles
      The best solution to that is either to get a good power bank or get an extra battery.

    Hi please i bot a tecno m3 over four months ago. and to be honest i really didnt enjoy the phone as much.. it started typing by itself two months after i brought it.. typing all sort of things and its really frustrating. i took it to their office, they told me it was software problem.. they flashed it and it was okay till after also a month it started again.. please i wana know if it is the screen problem or software because am really confused.. but i believe it should be screen problem because the phone has fallen twice and it could possibly might have afected the calibration. but i wana know what could be the problem. thanks.

    • admin

      Hello Daniel
      Possibly it could be a screen problem, but i doubt. The best solution it to take it back to them. if they can’t fix it, they will give you another one.

      Hi Ay

      Hi Tunji
      The best way to handle such task is using your computer. However if you want to use your phone, you can still do it with the help of “file explorer”.
      To do that open up file explorer, mark the file you wish to move/copy, then you can copy and paste them in the new location of you choice.

    • admin

      Hello Kingsley
      I don’t think this is a problem, just make sure you bluetooth is properly connected to the other device. Also try to send something to other device to confirm that there is no issue with it. Then for your PC to recognize your phone when connected, there are different USB option you can use to activate it such mass storage option. However if you have done that and there is no positive result, then is possible that your PC don’t have your Phone’s software pre-installed in it

      Hi Joke
      There is no proven way to reduce data consumption on Android devices. But it’s noteworhty to always turn off your data when you ain’t using it. To disable keypad tone navigate through settings > language and input > Android Keyboard > untick sound on keypress. This should take care of the keypad tone.

    • admin

      Hello Oluwaseye
      I have seen some situations like this, but i couldn’t decipher what might be the cause. However from the best of my knowledge, it might be that your RAM has been fully ocuppied. The only solution to this is to clear your open apps and optimize your phone once in a while when making use of it.

    • admin

      Hello Bill
      That shouldn’t be an issue. if you wish to see the screen light, on during calls, then you don’t need to place the phone on your ear. A sensor at the edge of your phone helps to conserve your battery during calls by turning off the screen display. Any contact with your ear will make the screen to go off.

    You actually make it seem so easy with your
    presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I think
    I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post,

      Hi jastis

      What it’s the response you get when you try to use your camera ? P.S| Most camera error issues from Tecno phones is due to unusual loading of apps on the phone which consumes the internal memory. You should uninstall some of the unwanted apps on your phone. If the error persist, then you need to flush your phone to restore it to the original state.

    please Admin, my m3 has a very tough problem. I was just making a midnight call some weeks ago and suddenly, it switched off on its own. I tried booting it on again, it powered. but in the process of booting, when it gets to the stage where the techno logo appears, it simply shows a blank white screen and goes off and power on again. this is what I’ve been experiencing, and it can never get pass that techno logo. in fact, the techno logo can’t show. I’ve gone to Awka, capital of Anambra state, went all round but they couldn’t get it fixed. the funny thing is that, no computer has been able to recognize it when connected to. the last attempt made where I went to only recognized the phone as a charger, not a phone. I went to other places and phone engineers, but to no avail. I believe it’s a software problem but don’t know anything further about it. I just tired. so I don’t know if anything could be done to get it fixed Sir. if there’s any possible remedy, I’ll love to get your reply soonest please. I reside at Oji-River in Enugu state. my email is ‘Noblesplendour1@gmail.com ‘ if you needful to email me. please, I solicit your help…
