Created date: 07/29/2021, 14:51:00, Updated date: 07/29/2021, 19:22:24

We've conducted a detailed review of the Tecno Pop 5, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Tecno Pop 5

Tecno Pop 5's size

The Tecno Pop 5 is 3.0inches (75.7mm) wide, 6.2inches (157.7mm) tall, and 0.38inches (9.6mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people.

In giving an overall rating to the Tecno Pop 5, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

Tecno Pop 5's screen

The Tecno Pop 5 has a 6.1 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The resolution of the Tecno Pop 5's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The CPU performance of Tecno Pop 5

The processing power of the Tecno Pop 5 is comparatively low at 1.3GHz×4(Quad core). You'll most likely notice its lack of power when running games or playing videos. However, you shouldn't have any problems making calls, browsing the internet or using apps like Twitter or Instagram.

The Tecno Pop 5 only has 1GB of RAM, which is fairly low. The RAM is regularly insufficient, so operation gets unstable and jerky even when using apps that are not resource intensive.

In rating the Tecno Pop 5's overall operational speed, it ranks at the low end of smartphones. It will lag and feel sluggish even during normal use. In most cases, users will feel the performance to be lacking.

Tecno Pop 5's storage capacity

The Tecno Pop 5 has 16GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the Tecno Pop 5 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

The camera function of Tecno Pop 5

The performance of the Tecno Pop 5's main camera is rather low with only 5 MP pixels. If you take a lot of pictures, then you'll likely be dissatisfied with what this camera has to offer.

The Tecno Pop 5 comes with a 5 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of Tecno Pop 5

Overall assessment of Tecno Pop 5

The Tecno Pop 5's performance level is that of a budget smartphone. It's a bit too weak to use as a main smartphone, so if possible you should consider something slightly more powerful. However, it should be sufficient for people that only want to use the most basic functions, like making calls and browsing the internet, and for people that don't really use smartphones much.

The merits and demerits of Tecno Pop 5

The merits of Tecno Pop 5

  • With the large display you can comfortably use it to watch videos and play games.

The demerits of Tecno Pop 5

  • The CPU performance is not very good, and will become operationally sluggish when using apps.
  • The back camera is quite low-spec, so its not really suited for taking pictures to upload to social media.
