Overall Design, Build and Display

Tecno Pop 5X weighs 150g and measures 166 x 75.9 x 8.5mm.  For a device which weighs 150g and has 8.5mm thickness, it would be a gem to users who love the light, thin and comfortable in the hand or in the pocket. An ergonomic design of the device, with rounded edges, a water-drop, a centred notched front display, and a simplistic look, make it attractive. The aesthetic finishing of the budget smartphone makes it worth it, at face value.

Tecno designers as usual put a lot of thought into developing the Tecno phone, with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, a single black coloured camera ring in a rectangular mount, and an exquisite choice of colours. The body frame and back of the device is made of plastic, with the front side dominated by a glass front.  The display measures 6.52 inches and has a resolution of 720×1600 pixels. Tecno Pop 5X is available in Kenya and Phoneplace Kenya for Kes 12,000. You can opt for one of the three unique colours available: Cosmic Shine, Crystal Blue, and or Dazzle Black. These unique colours make the Tecno Pop 5X stand out.


The Tecno Pop 5X has a front 5MP camera. At the back, it features a single 8MP camera+QVGA.  These are basic features for a low-budget smart device. In case you need superior camera performance, you will have to opt for alternative smartphone options which are highlighted.

Performance and Storage

As a low-budget phone, most features on the Pop 5X got scaled down to do most basic stuff in a rapidly advancing and demanding environment. It runs on Android 10 (Go edition), HiOS OS. Most devices are now at Android 12, with the 13 version almost being launched in the coming months. A 2GB RAM, and 32GB internal memory provides the necessary space for the default applications and those downloaded by the user for convenience and preferences. A 32GB internal memory could get quickly overrun by numerous multimedia content most users access daily.

Luckily, the Tecno Pop 5X comes with a MicroSDXC (dedicated slot), enabling additional storage. Although the OS is Android 10, it still works perfectly and is upgradeable. It performs superbly considering it has a powerful Unisoc SC9832E (28nm) chipset, Quad-core 1.4 GHz processor, and Mali-T820 MP1 Graphics Unit Processor (GPU). It is not an ideal smartphone for avid video gamers, who are better off if they opted for other devices with stronger processing power, storage space and RAM.

Battery, Charging and Connectivity.

A 4,000mAh powers the Tecno Pop 5X. The Li-Po battery is charged by a normal USB Charger. The battery guarantees two days of normal usage, which is incredible considering most of the target segment of the budget smartphones are average users. The fast-wired charger connects to the phone through a standard USB 2.0 port.

In terms of connectivity, the smartphone supports up to 4G connectivity, with up to HSPA 21.1/5.76 Mbps speed. It has a micro USB port for charging and transfer of data. The device supports Bluetooth connectivity Wi-Fi 802.11, and Hotspot Connectivity when sharing the internet with other devices and an FM Radio.
