Features, Performance, and Reviews for the Tecno Pop 5c 16GB

Tecno Pop 5c 16GB 's size

The "Tecno Pop 5c 16GB" is 74.1mm wide, 145.2mm tall, and 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 16GB", it weighs about 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 16GB", 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 16GB 's screen

The "Tecno Pop 5c 16GB" 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 16GB" 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 16GB

The processing power of the "Tecno Pop 5c 16GB" 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 16GB" 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 16GB"'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 16GB 's storage capacity

The "Tecno Pop 5c 16GB" 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 16GB" 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 16GB

The performance of the "Tecno Pop 5c 16GB"'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 16GB" 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 16GB

Overall assessment of Tecno Pop 5c 16GB

The "Tecno Pop 5c 16GB"'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.
