Tecno Mobile has been known for making budget smartphones in all the markets they are in. Tecno has added another budget smartphone to their previous budgets phones which is the Tecno Pouvoir 2 Pro. The Tecno Pouvoir 2 Pro is the more premium variant of the Tecno Pouvoir 2 it was released alongside. This phone has more RAM and a better front camera than the non-pro variant. I’ll be writing about the specs of the Pouvoir 2 Pro and I’ll also be doing a review about it in 2020.
Tecno Pouvoir 2 Pro
• 6.0 inches IPS LCD display
• MediaTek MT6737 processor
• 3GB of RAM
• 16GB built-in storage
• 13MP rear camera
• 13MP front-facing camera
• Rear-mounted fingerprint sensor
• 5,000 mAh battery
Design and Body
The Tecno Pouvoir 2 Pro has very similar looks as its non-pro variant, the Tecno Pouvoir 2. The phone comes in a full plastic body which makes it not to have a premium feel but u guess it’s a way of cutting costs down. It has a thickness of 8.2 mm despite the huge battery, it also weighs 171 grams which is not so heavy. The phone has a little bit slim bezels at the top and bottom thanks to the 18:9 aspect ratio. The phone is available in different colours ranging from Blue to Black and Gold.
The Tecno Pouvoir 2 Pro sports a 6.0 inches IPS LCD display with an HD+ resolution of 720×1440 pixels and a small 268 pixels per inch density. The display is not sharp and crisp but I guess a 1080p panel wasn’t used because they want to cut costs down as this is a budget smartphone.
Processor and Memory
Tecno Pouvoir 2 Pro is powered by a quad-core MediaTek MT6737 processor which has a maximum clock speed of 1.3 GHz coupled with Mali T720 MP2 GPU for gaming and graphics-related activities. The processor is also a budget one.
The Pouvoir 2 Pro comes with 3GB of RAM and 16GB built-in storage with a dedicated micro SD card slot.
Tecno Pouvoir 2 Pro has a 13MP rear camera which features Auto Focus coupled with LED flash for low light situations. The rear camera can record 1080p videos at 30 frames per second.
At the front, there’s a 13MP camera sensor with a LED flash which helps in low light situations. The front camera can also record 1080p videos at 30 fps.
Network and Connectivity
The Tecno Pouvoir 2 Pro comes with support for 4G LTE network which gives you access to fast blazing internet speeds when downloading and browsing the web. It also comes with Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, FM Radio, WiFi and WiFi hotspot. The phone has a micro USB 2.0 port for charging and data transfer.
Battery and Charging
Coming to the battery, this is the top-selling point of this phone and it has always been the top-selling point of any Pouvoir smartphone. The Tecno Pouvoir 2 Pro has a 5,000 mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery. According to Tecno Mobile, the Pouvoir 2 Pro will last for about 96 hours on one charge. However, if you’re a heavy user I doubt if it will last that long.
Tecno Pouvoir 2 Pro Price
Tecno Pouvoir 2 Pro price in Nigeria starts at around 29,000 Naira as of August 2020. Tecno has stopped making the Pouvoir 2 Pro so I’m not sure if it is available in most stores.
Tecno Pouvoir 2 Pro Review
The Pouvoir 2 Pro would have been a good buy but if we were 2 years back but in 2020, Tecno Pouvoir 2 Pro is not worth buying as all the specs are already outdated. Tecno Pouvoir 2 is not worth buying in 2020.
