Tecno Mobole unveiled the Tecno Spark K7 and Tecno Spark Plus K9. Although the Spark Plus K9 is came in much later, the Spark K7 have received thousands of positive reviews and commendation.

However, Tecno decided to surprise it fans and lovers who couldn’t afford some of her high-end and premium devices by releasing an affordable budget and low-end smartphone called the Tecno S1.

Read on to the specs, some pictures and what we think about the Device.

Tecno S1 is a very low-end Android smartphone that comes running the Android Marshmallow out of the box, the device from Tecno comes with dirty cheap price tag to compensate for its mediocre spec sheet but the price still seems a bit too much for what the device has to offer.

You will want to consider other good low-end Android phones like the Infinix Smart from Infinix and Oukitel C8 from Oukitel Mobile. Lenovo A1000 and Itel A51 are also great alternatives to the Tecno S1.

Design

Somehow, the front view of the Tecno S1 already gives the device out as a budget and low-end device. The device is made of a basic black coloured dashboard surrounding the small screen and three capacitive soft-keys below the display.

At the back, the roughly textured back cover is the first thing you’d noticed when you hold the Tecno S1. The primary camera, the loudspeaker grill at the bottom and the all-caps TECNO logo are other components that make up the rear/back of the device.

Display

The Tecno S1 comes with a 4.0 inch capacitive touchscreen with a below par display resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. The display quality is pretty low, so do not expect much from the screen. Although it supports multi-touch of an unknown number of fingers. The screen lacks protection of any kind therefore, it is advised to purchase accessories like a screen protector and phone case

Performance

Performance-wise, the chipset embedded within this device is a Quad-core MediaTek SoC clocked at 1.3 GHz.

That alongside the 1GB of RAM the Tecno S1 features for handling concurrently running applications and an inbuilt storage capacity of 8GB. 8GB which can be extended by means of a memory card (capacities up to 32GB).

Camera

The Tecno S1 comes with a single 2 megapixels meagre camera on the rear with a LED flash right below it. However, the Tecno S1 does not come with a secondary camera on the front. This might make taking selfies and making video calls and chat a tad bit difficult.

Battery Capacity and Sensors

The Tecno S1 is powered by a 1,500 mAh Lithium Ion battery. The battery is removable and this means you can purchase batteries to keep as spares should in case you run out of battery juice.

Other connectivity options includes Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and sensors which include accelerometer, proximity and compass and light sensor.
