First of the POWER Series Tecno Pouvoir 1 Phone

Tecno Pouvoir 1

With the Tecno Pouvoir 1 comes the lesser and more affordable model than Tecno Pouvoir 2. This smartphone has a more modest spec sheet than the former and also looks a bit different from the aforementioned smartphone.

It is definitely smaller in size and a bit different in terms of design but has a similar overall build. The Tecno Pouvoir 1 is cheaper for those who are on a restricting budget or wants something recent and very simple.

Tecno Pouvoir 1 is apparently the first smartphone to be unveiled into the ‘Pouvoir’ line up of affordable Android phones from Tecno.

As there name, Pouvoir (a french word that translates to ‘Power’ in English) indicates, the new Pouvoir family has massive battery capacity as there main selling point.

The Pouvoir 2 comes with a slightly higher price tag but sees major upgrades in some key areas like the Android version, RAM capacity and more. There are also other good Tecno phones like the Tecno Phantom 8 and Camon X.

You don’t want to consider Tecno phones anymore? Other good alternatives are Infinix Hot 6 Pro and Huawei Y7 Prime (2018), Nokia 7 Plus is also looking but a lot more pricey. Leagoo T5c and Leagoo S8 are also very good alternatives with approachable price tags.

Tecno Pouvoir 1

Design

Normally, for a smartphone this cheap, design is not really something that attracts attention. Nonetheless, the Tecno Pouvoir 1 impresses with an exquisite plain design and the traditional 16:9 aspect ratio but with average bezels of course.

In comparison to the more premium Pouvoir 2, it had a different rear camera placement at the top left corner. It is also a bit more thicker and his available in a number of colours which includes black, blue champagne and green.

Display

Tecno Pouvoir 1 boasts a 5.5 inches display that has an HD resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels, This leaves its PPI (pixel per square-inch) at about 267. There’s no 18:9 screen aspect ratio on the device bezels are not looking that bad either, quite typical for a low-end device.

Performance

Under the Pouvoir’s plastic build sits an unknown (for now) quad-core MediaTek CPU which has a processor speed clocked at 1.3GHz and is probably using a Mali-T720 MP2 GPU for pushing graphics.

As expected, it has just 1GB of RAM space for multitasking, with a memory speed of 533MHz as well. While for storage, a bigger 16GB internal storage space is ready to accommodate more files and apps. The Tecno Pouvoir 1 runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with HiOS skin.

Camera

For selfies and snaps, the Tecno Pouvoir 1 features a 5MP front-facing shooter having a single dedicated LED flash to provide lighting in dark environments, while at the back of the device sits an 8 MP lens which also has its own LED light and is capable of shooting 720p videos at 30 frames per seconds.

Battery Capacity and Sensors

Tecno Pouvoir 1 packs a non-removable Li-Po 5,000mAh to power all the above features and more, like the connectivity options which includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, LTE and sensors which include Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer,  Light sensor, Fingerprint.
