Tecno F6 - Specs and Price in Nigeria

on . Posted in Mobile

Tecno F6 which is a direct upgrade from Tecno F5 was released late last month (September). Rumour has it that Tecno released this phone to compete with its biggest low-budget smart phone competitor in Nigeria at the moment: the Infinix Zero. The Infinix Zero, since its release in August this year, has become very popular among low-budget smart phone lovers in Nigeria; thanks to some serious marketing by Infinix and Konga.

For a low budget smart phone selling at around ₦20,000 to ₦30,000, the Tecno F6 is not bad at all.

Detailed/more specifications below..

Tecno F6 comes with the latest Android 4.4.2 (Kit Kat) which was absent in Tecno R7 (Tecno's latest release before the F6). Tecno keeps it simple with a decent sized 4.7inch screen. Its 1.3GHz Quad-core processor is amazing for a low budget smart phone and its 8MP back and 5MP front camera is just right for selfie lovers.

Tecno F6 vs Tecno F5

Almost every feature of Tecno F5 was upgraded in Tecno F6. The screen size is a little bit bigger at 4.7inches as compared to the 4.0 inches of the F5. While the F5 spots a decent Dual Core processor, the F6 comes with a powerful Quad-core processor. The camera quality and battery life were also upgraded from the 5/2MP back/front camera and a 1500mAh battery of the F5 to the 8/5MP back/front camera and a 2000mAh battery of the F6.

Tecno F6 vs Infinix Zero

The Infinix zero, like the Tecno F6 has a plastic cover but the Infinix Zero somehow looks sleek and expensive and considering the fact that the Infinix is slimmer (7.9 mm) than Tecno F6 (8.7mm) we have no choice but the declare Infinix Zero the winner of this physical appearance battle. Apart from the plastic cover, both low budget smart phones are similar in other aspects. They both use the latest Android 4.4 OS, 1GB RAM and they both support Dual SIM usage and up to 32GB micro SD card.

Infinix zero's screen size is only 0.3 inches bigger than that of the F6 and the Infinix can boast of a Gorilla-glass-3 protection unlike the F6. Also while Infinix Zero uses a powerful 1.4GHz Octa-core processor, Tecno F6 uses a less powerful 1.3GHz Quad-core processor. The quality of the rear camera (13MP) of the Infinix is also slightly better that that of the F6 (8MP) but its (Infinix Zero) front camera (2MP) is way below that of Tecno F6 (5MP).

From the specs and physical appearance, Infinix Zero is arguably the best low budget smartphone in the Nigerian Market today.

The 17 to 20k price above is unconfirmed. The phone was not in stock as at the time of writing the article. However, Kara.com (www.kara.com.ng/tecno-f6/) is currently displaying the product on their site with a 28k price tag (not 100% sure that the product is in stock though).

Hello Praise.
There are different models of Tecno and Infinix phones. To get a fair comparison, you have to pick identical models of each phone.
To the best of our knowledge, pre-installed ringtones on Tecno phones cannot be deleted.
The price of Tecno F6 is not stable at the moment... It also depends on the seller...
