A quick review of the Tecno phantom 6
Its very obvious that TECNO decided to take it to a whole new level since there is high demand in quality plus high competition in the mobile market. I must commend the effort in the design and overall specifications of this device.
The Phantom 6 is Equiped with a 5.5 inch AMOLED screen , 3GB RAM , 32GB internal storage and 2700mAh battery.
Secondly, Tecno Phantom 6 is is equipped with an incredible design and slim body measuring just 6.15mm ; very different from that of the last years flagship the Phantom 5 .
Still on the design, the Tecno Phantom 6 has a 5 layer Full metal body which proves to be more durable with a slight curve around the back to enable more grip.
More so, the body is made up of a Nano molding seamless metal unibody, a firm fastener, a non-detachable battery design , and an aluminum magnesium alloy frame with a corning gorilla glass v3.0 wich helps protect the screen from scratch and cracks its also safe to say that each of the above mentioned layer adds a unique element to the overall appearance of the device. From bottom to the top.
When i said that tecno took it to a whole new level, I realy meant it the Phantom 6 will definately interest in the camera aspect for those who loves taking pictures Tecno decided to make it big for its lovers by signing major deal with the likes of SONY in other give the best quality images out there, the device comes with world class camera sensors manufactured by SONY.
Tecno Phantom 6 comes with 13MP and the other with 5MP resolution , making a total of 18MP. The 13MP camera detects the view , while the 5MP camera provides more depth and clarity to the picture. Note that this same camera setup was used on the Huawei P9 and the iPhone 7 Plus smartphone.
