The Tecno L8 is decked out to deliver the level of performance you’d ordinarily expect from most low mid-range smartphones these days. It is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz.

This is assisted for manageable multitasking by lowly 1 GB of RAM. The decision to run this phone on Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system may not go down well with some buyers, but this is a budget device after all. The onboard storage capacity of 16 GB should suffice for handling thousands of photos, songs, videos and apps. The storage is also expandable using a microSD card.


The phone comes with a specially designed HiOS camera that can be compared to a professional camera – as claimed by the manufacturer. In case you don’t know, HiOS is the new Tecno OS, which aims to offer you a user-friendly experience.

The 8MP rear camera captures high-resolution images. Sitting next to the auto-focus camera is an LED flashlight for capturing bright images in the dark. It comes with an impressive 2MP front camera that serves as a good tool for selfies and groupies.
