TECNO Pouvoir 4, what you need to know before buying in Kenya

While the much hyped Tecno Povoir 4 is readily available in Kenya for Ksh.14,999, we’ve detailed our opinion in the following editorial so you just don’t fork out a handsome 15k without knowing what you’ll be getting in return. In my opinion, smartphones have adopted names that are rather overrated, I’d prefer calling a spade a spade and Tecno Pouvoir 4 scores well in some interesting areas while slumping in others just so you could get a reasonable price tag. Away from the name, and by the way my first impression for the Pouvoir series was greatness in design which I’m yet to feel but understandable from the cost. There are some interesting areas such as battery that probably will appeal to many at the same time repelling power users in areas that count most.

While the company claims the smartphone can endure four straight days on a single charge, it’s probably a marketing gimmick as lithium ion batteries are yet to make such milestones in reality; though, we comment Tecno for packing a 6000mAh battery in this device. large screen loyalists would probably be at home having a 7inch device in their possession but we also acknowledge the strain this is going to have on the battery.

On the brighter side, Pouvoir 4 packs a set of 4 cameras; a 13MP main sensor, a set of two 2MP cameras and an AI lens that we expect to utilize various lens in different conditions so your snap shots can pop. On the front side, there’s a an 8MP selfie camera that’s complemented by dual led flash to make those selfies worth sharing.

For 15k, we expected the company to offer more than just 32GB internal storage and at least 4GB or more RAM but you’ll have to be contented with what you get as the Pouvoir 4 comes with only 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. I might be hesitant to get this device if I’m a heavy gamer as you’d probably experience a ton of lags under load, but for light purposes, the difference might not be worth your concern at this point.

However, Tecno has incorporated some gaming features so you don’t feel left out such as a magic button that can be used as fire key in arcade/shooting games as well as a PUBG focused Intelligent scheduling system resources to ensure a high-quality PUBG game experience while throttling when the display if off to saves more than 50% of battery capacity.
