Features of the Tecno Phantom 5
Tecno Phantom 5 is slimmer and lighter than its prototype – Tecno Phantom. It comes with a shiny design measuring 151 x 75.8 x 6.8mm structured on an elegant glass and complete metal finish. It trimmed more than a millimeter off the density of the old Phantom.

The smartphone comes with a power boost. It is powered by 1.5GHz Octa-core cortex processor. This is doubled with a 3GB RAM for a smooth conduct and a consistent balance. The smartphone comes with twice the storage capacity of some Tecno phones. The storage capacity is 32GB inbuilt memory. This space is enough for your files and media.
Phantom 5 features a screen dimension of 5.5-inch with FHD display and a nice pixel density with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels. They have the lead because they allow for a slender design as well as offer better battery capacity. This feature results in better battery life. Its full HD display also offers better contrast.
Tecno Phantom 5 has a 13 megapixels camera with faster auto focus on the back with the sensor coming from Samsung. Also an 8 megapixels camera is structured in the front with the aid of a LED flash. The phone’s camera supports smart gestures, which means you can take a shot by waving your hand.
The Fingerprint sensor on the Phantom 5 is really an awesome feature. This feature was found previously on only Apple iPhone 5S and Samsung Galaxy range. Therefore, Tecno including such a feature in its Phantom 5 really surprised people. The sensor is at the back of the smartphone and is really fast and accurate when detecting fingerprints. Furthermore, its works from any direction (i.e. 360 degrees) and all 5 fingers can be used to access it.
The smartphone comes with a 3,000 mAh battery. Its a really large battery that lasts for long. Though it takes time to be recharged fully, but when it is fully charged you don’t need a power bank or another round of refill for the day. Its quite impressive that a phone with an energy-sapping large HD screen can have such battery life. Moreover the slender nature of the phone makes it a commendable feature of having such battery.
The music capabilities of the Phantom 5 is quite impressive! The Phantom 5 has a really loud and large speaker at the back of the device that has a really loud sound. Its amazing how loud it is because you can play songs without an ear phone when you are alone.
Another amazing feature is the ability of the metallic ear phone that came with the device. The sound quality is really great. Tecno have also created their own music player called Boom Player. It is different from the Android standard player. It has Dolby Surround features so you can really ‘amp up’ the quality of its audio to the next level as well.
