0

Tecno released their first marshmallows device, Tecno W4 into the market just of a recent. In this post, we talked about the Tecno W4 price and the user review.
The device is an affordable device running a unique HiOS on Android 6.0 marshmallows which is sleek and light. The phone packs decent specs and features which are handy for a device of its type. In this review, I will take you through some features of the device and why it’s a very good low-end phone among its counterparts

Design and display

One of the attention pullers of this phone is its gorgeous design complemented with a metallic infusion around its edges. Everybody who saw the device from my hands eventually falls in love with the design. I have seen the Tecno Boom J8 which is a master class, the w4 also doesn’t disappoint in its appearance.

Tecno w4

With a 5.0 HD IPS Display, pictures look sharper and colourful, there’s a Miracast that enhances the visual experience on the Tecno w4. I put some of my favourite Full HD videos on the Tecno w4 to test the fluidity, I didn’t experience any distortion or lag while playing those videos.

 

 The Tecno w4 is very light and can be held in the hands comfortably. Most of my devices are 5.5 inches, so this feels so portable in my hands.

Camera

It has an 8MP rear camera and 2MP front camera with flash. The rear camera produces some good photos which are good for social media sharing. The front camera is not so good, if you are the selfie types you may not really like the camera. Camera sample below.

Software and performance

Since this a low-end device, I am not expecting a stellar kind of performance from this phone. It comes with a HiOS running on Android 6.0 marshmallows, 1GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory and a quad-core MediaTek processor.
The RAM operation is good, way better than most 1GB RAM phones out there thanks to the HiOS and Android 6.0 marshmallows on the device.

Battery Life

One of the things people consider when looking for a phone to buy is the battery capacity though higher battery capacity doesn’t lead to good battery life. The battery capacity on the phone is 2500mAh which is very small when you consider most phones now come with around 3000mAh.
I put the battery to the test, I used the phone as my primary calling phone, used Wi-Fi, played music and videos, light games and a little browsing. Guess what? The battery lasts but if you are the heavy user’s type, it might not serve you for a whole day.
In conclusion, Tecno W4 is another beautiful phone from Tecno Mobile. I like the design, the themes and wallpapers are really amazing, lots of them on this phone. The battery is what really surprised me because it lasts like a 3600mAh battery.
Few things still need improvement on the HiOS, no lock screen notification and putting your apps on a folder is not that easy. Overall it’s a very good device.  Tecno W4 price in Nigeria ranges from N28,000-N34,000
