Tecno Pop 5c review: worth buying?

Created date: 11/18/2021, 14:04:47, Updated date: 11/18/2021, 16:41:00

We've conducted a detailed review of the Tecno Pop 5c, 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 5c

Tecno Pop 5c's size

The Tecno Pop 5c is 2.9inches (74.1mm) wide, 5.7inches (145.2mm) tall, and 0.39inches (9.9mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the Tecno Pop 5c, it weighs about 5.3oz (150g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

In giving an overall rating to the Tecno Pop 5c, 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 5c's screen

The Tecno Pop 5c has a 5 inch screen. The iPhone X has a big screen, which very likely won't ever trouble you. Just be aware that it's not a very good size for writing long blocks of text.

The screen quality of the Tecno Pop 5c is such that videos and images can be blurry at times. There's a noticeable lack of image quality in general.

The CPU performance of Tecno Pop 5c

The processing power of the Tecno Pop 5c 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 5c 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 5c'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 5c's storage capacity

The Tecno Pop 5c 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 5c 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 5c

The performance of the Tecno Pop 5c'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 5c comes equipped with a 2 MP pixel front-facing camera, which is very low resolution. If you aren't particular about your videos or photos, it might be fine, but otherwise, we recommend a smartphone at least one tier higher.

The battery performance of Tecno Pop 5c

Overall assessment of Tecno Pop 5c

The Tecno Pop 5c'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 5c

The merits of Tecno Pop 5c

  • It feels comparably light.
  • It has a big display that makes it easy to see text and images.

The demerits of Tecno Pop 5c

  • The image quality on the screen is not good.
  • 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.
  • The rear-facing camera is very low resolution, so you should not think of using this smartphone as your main camera.
