TECNO PHANTOM 6 Plus
The bigger it gets, the better it becomes. We have yet another addition to the TECNO line of smartphones, phablets, the TECNO PHANTOM 6 Plus. TECNO went all out with this phone so hear at Phone Place we had to do a review of the same just to see what this phablet of a phone has to offer. Excited? So am I. let us dig in and see what we have with and in the PHANTOM 6 Plus.
Design and build
YECNO chose to go for an all metallic build with this big phone. I mean wouldn’t it look awkward walking around with a big plastic thing? It was a good move by TECNO I have to give them that. The design, All buttons are on the left with the right reserved for the hybrid dual-SIM/microSD card slot, face of it has Phantom branding on the lower bezel, top bezel has the selfie camera, sensors and the earpiece. It also has the big 6.0 inch touch screen. On the back is and LED flash sandwiched by the camera and the fingerprint sensor (which is quickly becoming a must include with TECNO). Bellows all these three is TECNO’S branding. I love the design of this phone. It stands at 160.35 x 83.46 x 7.7 mm. Well, if you feel this phone is too big for you to hold you may as well consider the smaller Phantom version, TECNO PHANTOM 6 check it out https://phoneplacekenya.com/product/tecno-phantom-6/
As already mentioned we get a 6.0 inches display on the TECNO PHANTOM 6 Plus. It is an IPS capacitive Full HD touchscreen with 16,000,000 colors. The resolution kicks in at 1080 x 1920 pixels, 370 pixels per inch (PPI). A descent display it is, can get bright enough to view outdoors, has some good colors especially with TECNO’s hiOS theming. You also get some god color representation and punch with the display on this phone.
Two very interesting cameras on board. A primary 21MP, up to 5248 x 3936-pixel-pixel shooter with HDR, auto focus, Geo-tagging, panorama and with an LED flash. Then 8MP, up to 3264 x 2448-pixel pictures a secondary / selfie camera on the face of the phone. These shooters are as good as they can get. Believe you mean the images you get with these cameras are sharp, well focused and superbly crisp, almost if not at the standard of an intended camera phone, which the TECNO PHANTOM 6 Plus is not. Video recording is at 1080p@30fps and has a very interesting feature that does simultaneous video and picture recording. Nice to see. You are a photo and video lover? Grab a Phantom 6 Plus.
Performance and memory
A power horse if you ask me. We get processing specs with 2.5GHz dual-core Cortex-A72, 2.0GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 & 1.4GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU, MediaTek MT6797 Helio X20 chipset and Mali-T800 GPU benchmark. This phone won’t hang or stutter from time to time. The experience you will get with it will be smooth and easy.
It comes with 64 GB of internal memory which surprisingly can still be expanded up to 128 GB using an SD card. Then it runs with 4GB of RAM and comes with android marshmallow on board.
You get a 4050mAh batter here, a respectable capacity that should see you through a whole day. It is a good thing to see fast charging which TECNO calls light charging on the TECNO Phantom 6 Plus.
Connectivity and network
There is support for Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotspot, Wi-Fi direct, Bluetooth Version 4.2, GPS with A-GPS and comes with a MicroUSB v2.0, Type-C connector.
Network: dual sim with dual standby. GSM/WCDMA, GSM/EDGE: 900/1800 and WCDMA: 2100, or just 2G, 3G and 4G again, TECNO.
We get some good speaker output sound with the TECNO PHANTOM 6 Plus thanks to its bottom firing speakers which by the way add to the good looks of the phone. We see a 3.5mm jack on top of it which is good and it does give good output over headphones.
Let’s wrap up now. So don’t be surprised when you get a big package with the TECNO PHANTOM 6 Plus. TECNO are generous enough to gift you with some goodies like an extra charging adaptor, a screen protector, a phone case etc etc.
It is a solid phablet for the big screen and good performance lovers. I do recommend the TECNO PHANTOM 6 Plus. It comes in two premium colors Silver and Gold.
