Tecno W1 Review – Price and Specification

Tecno W1 Review – Price and Specification.

Tecno is a good mobile phone everyone should have especially young ones. I love recommending good phones for people and one unique phone to use is techno.

Tecno W1 is a smartphone considered to be both an upgrade and downgrade of the Tecno W2 in certain regards, forget the non-chronological name. Below is the price, Specification and everything you need to know about this phone.

Tecno W1 Review –  Specification & Price

It interestingly comes with a newer Android version, but has smaller screen size.

Tecno W1 Key Specs

  • 5-inch Touch Display, 480 x 854 pixels (244ppi)
  • 3GHz quad-core Processor with 1GB RAM
  • Android 7.0 (Nougat)
  • 8GB Storage with support for memory card up to 32GB
  • 2MP Rear Camera and 0.3MP Front Camera
  • Dual-SIM, Mini-SIM
  • 1800 mAh Removable Battery

Build and Screen

There is nothing out of the ordinary about the Tecno W1 in terms of appearance. This shouldn’t be surprising really given its budget status. The body is made of plastic with the display looking trapped in the middle of thick black boundary. The screen measures just 4 inches diagonally and has a WVGA resolution of 800 x 480 pixels.

Camera and Storage of Tecno W1 Review

The Tecno W1 appears to offer similar camera combo as the W2. You will find a 2MP camera with flash on the rear. The front facing camera is said to feature flash as well. You should have no problem taking decent picture in lowlight conditions. But with a pair of snappers like this one, it is unlikely this phone will be a favourite for selfie addicts.

Like its bigger 4.5-inch brother, the Tecno W1 offers onboard storage of 8 GB. You will be able to expand this by another 32 GB using a microSD card.

Performance and OS

The Tecno W1 smartphone should deliver a level of performance satisfactory to most basic users. It features a quad-core MediaTek processor whose speed maxes at 1.3 GHz. This is just what you can expect on budget device like this one.

But the 1 GB of RAM on offer should get things moving along well. Although you get the usual promise of seamless multitasking from the maker, it pays not to expect too much in terms of performance.

The main selling point of the Tecno W1 is its operating system. It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat software. This is pretty impressive for a phone that sells at this price point. What one would usually expect on similar offering is Android Lollipop, or even KitKat.

Other Specs and Features

The juicer has a capacity of 1800 mAh, which is an aspect where the phone fails to measure up to the Tecno W1. The battery life is rated at up to two days on a charge. You get the usual connectivity options, including Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n with Wi-Fi Direct and Hotspot functionality.
