The Tecno Phantom 8: Everything else you need to know

Phantom 8 also runs on the latest android OS, android 7 Nougat

Being the leading brand in Africa’s mobile market, Tecno unveiled its masterpiece, the Phantom 8 with boasting features, having an edge over some other flagship devices released in 2017.
Let’s take a quick trip and have a savoir-faire with it.

First stop, the body design!

The Diamond fire design as it is called makes the Phantom 8 not just a sleek body of art but an accessory that compliments the day to day feel. It bounces long rays of light off it and waves them back and forth as you move it in the most subtle way.

This is indeed like no other phone you’ve ever come across.

Another thing that is exciting is the fact that Tecno still has the Headphones Slot. Phone brands are cutting that slot out already and as the P7 was skipped for an 8, for a split second I thought the headphone slot was also going to go away since that’s what in vogue now.



I’m glad they kept it. A lot more people prefer to have the headphones slot than dongles.

One other upgrade of the Phantom 8 is the increase in speed and space with an unbelievable 6 GB RAM and memory space of 64 GB which allows patrons to download up to 80 Apps without slowing down the phone. It also enables 50% of download speed and fully charges the phone in 70minutes.

Now to the main feature of the Phantom 8 that is turning heads, the camera.



Amassing a dual 12 and 13mp rear camera with 10x super zoom plus a whooping 20mp front camera made with the user in mind, the Phantom 8 gives patrons a worth of their money with some key camera features like the Auto Focus Mode, Refocus and the Soft Flash Light feature for taking all those awesome selfies in the dark without hurting the eyes.

For battery, the Phantom 8 gives you a 3500mAh battery capacity with a 50percent extra-fast charge capacity which runs on the custom made UI platform for Tecno, HiOS 3.0.
Phantom 8 also runs on the latest android OS, android 7 Nougat.




In a Nutshell the Phantom 8 comes off as a pretty impressive phone which has concluded to be one of the best phones for 2017.
