Tecno POP 3 Selfie camera

When it comes to affordable smartphones it usually is advisable to glory in its strongest and key features. Such an one is the 8 MP front facing camera of Tecno POP 3. For one, it is a better performer than its 5 MP main shooting lens for reasons obvious to most. Because of this reason it is a phone easy to recommend to the class of people who use the selfie more than the main camera lens. But this does not at all mean that the main 5MP shooter is a whack piece of hardware not at all. It is also decent for the price and has a flash for those low light scenarios. That same flash lies right beside the selfie camera as well making it even much more of a fan favorite. If you are looking to buy an affordable camera phone, look this direction. 

Best features of Tecno POP 3 

Fingerprint scanner – The fingerprint scanner has now become one of the key features no smartphone should miss. Tecno POP 3 comes with its scanner mounted at the back panel with a placement easy to reach with the desired finger (usually the index finger). It is quick to unlock your phone with and definitely the most secure option this phone has to offer. Unless of course you will have a twenty digit password/code which very few can bear. This fingerprint scanner is a feature you will appreciate. 

Long lasting Battery – Inasmuch as the battery capacity of Tecno POP 3 is only 3500mAH, the same still lasts hours after hours after hours of mixed and moderate usage. This is the case because of the minimal platform performance and optimization of the Operating System to ensure these hours are achieved. Speaking of operating system this one runs Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition). I cannot promise there will be an update to later version. Tecno POP 3, if you observe keenly, was simply made to run Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition). 

At the very least these are the features you must take keen interest on with Tecno Pop 3. It is an okay budget or cheap smartphone in Kenya. But if you wish to have more then you might as well check out its bigger brother Tecno Pop 3 Plus. Read about it here.
