Tecno Phantom 5 – The New King of the Phantom Line


Tecno Phantom 5 is the latest addition to the Tecno’s top of the line Phantom family. The Phantom 5 is more or less a successor to the Phantom Z featuring a 5.5-inch full HD display, 3GB of RAM, a fingerprint sensor, super fast 4G LTE, and a long awaited upgrade to Android 5.1 (Lollipop).

The New King of the Phantom Line

Tecno-Phantom-5-Specifications-Review-and-Price-in-KenyaTenco Phantom 5 has no doubt dethroned the Phantom Z as the new king of the prestigious Phantom range with its impressive lineup of specs. The Tecno Phantom 5 offers premium design and performance at a more affordable mid-range price.

The smartphone comes with a metallic finish and is super slim at just 6.8 mm. Tecno Phantom 5 will be available in Champagne Gold and Space Grey.

The Display

Tecno is putting a bigger screen on the Phantom 5. The screen is moving from a 5.2-inch display to a 5.5-inch display, which offers more real estate for your content making it great for watching movies, playing games, and browsing the web.

However, it still retains the 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution of its predecessor, which at 400 pixels per inch is still very impressive and should offer a solid viewing experience.

The Cameras

Tecno Phantom 5 seems to be getting a down-grade in the camera department. While the Phantom Z offered a 16 megapixels camera, the Phantom 5 is dropping to a 13 megapixels camera. The camera still offers dual-LED Flash.

Tecno Phantom 5 maintains the 8 megapixels front facing camera, which should offer great selfies and wefies.

Hardware & Software

Tecno Phantom 5 runs Android 5.1 (Lollipop) on a 1.5GHz octa-core processor with an impressive 3GB of RAM. With these impressive base we expect the smartphone to run smoothly.

One great feature of the Phantom 5 is the introduction of a fingerprint scanner. According to Tecno the scanner enables you unlock your phone in less than a second (700 millisecond to be precise). The fingerprint system can stores up to 10 fingerprint.

Tecno Phantom 5 sports 32GB built-in storage and supports 4G LTE for super fast download and video streaming.
