Unboxing Tecno Pova

Curious how the retail package look like? It comes with a big box — yes because this one has a super large display of  6.8″ Dot-in HD+ display to complement the battery.

While the top brands are removing accessories from its retail package, Tecno has everything in its box.

Aside from the usual FREE transparent casing, Tecno has included a free screen protector.

Initial impression

Let me share with the good stuff I’ve spotted early on during my unboxing.

It has what Filipinos loved the most – a triple card slot. That means you can enjoy two SIM from either different networks or one main SIM and a backup, plus you can expand the internal storage using the dedicated microSD slot.

The “revolution” has been started by Apple and there’s a natural tendency that the other big brands will follow. But for now, Tecno has included complete accessories to its retail package – earphones, wall charger, USB cable, transparent jelly case, and even a free uninstalled screen protector.

Lastly, the 6,000mAH super large battery capacity is really, really good for people who travel or to anybody who need long-lasting battery life.

What did not impress me is the quite old micro USB port. We are already about to end the year 2020 and yet, brands like Tecno still use a 13-year old technology for modern mobile phones. USB Type-C would have been nicer.

That’s it for now and stay tuned for my full review.
