The packaging box of the Tecno Pova 5G is tall. We mean that. It is like a Oneplus 9 series box tall really tall. Opening it up you get to see the smartphone in all its Aether Black glory. Still inside the box is a premium plastic case that fits this smartphone well, a warranty card, headphones, SIM card ejector to USB types C cable, and an 18W fast charger.

Design and build

Build quality-wise, this phone has a plastic rear back that scratches easily. So I recommend you use the premium plastic case that comes included in the box. Its sides are also made from plastic and the front doesn’t have Glass Glass protection. Present on this phone is a microphone at the top, on the left side, it has a dual nano-SIM card and memory tray. Moving to the bottom. It has a 3.5 mm audio jack, another microphone, a USB type C port, and a mono speaker. On the smartphone on the right side is where the volume keys and the power/fingerprints scanner are located. This smartphone also has the face unlock feature and it works in the dark as well.


It is at the back panel of this phone that you will see a three cameras setup. A 50-megapixel main camera, a 2 mega depth camera, and a QVGA camera. So essentially it has only one main camera and that is its 50 MP, (wide), the PDAF shooter. The two other cameras can take pictures. It also has an LED light on the backside of the camera module. Flipping the smartphone around you cannot miss seeing its 16 MP, (wide) selfie shooter with a flashlight.

That 16-megapixel front-facing camera and the pictures it captures are sharp. Tecno has really improved on picture quality, to be honest. As for the video, it supports recording upto 4k@30fps. Yes! You read that right. Photos and portraits are very impressive as well using the 50-megapixel main camera. It can also shoot in 4k@30fps but it doesn’t have video stabilization at that quality. Only 1080p@30fps so take note of that.


Turning our focus to the display, Tecno Pova 5G has a massive 6.9 inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 1080 x 2460 pixels. The display has a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a touch sampling rate of 180 Hz. Now for its size, some people will like it, some will not. It’s life. But this phone does solve this situation by including the one-hand feature to make things manageable. For consumer media, this one will definitely serve the purpose. Check this out. It supports HDR 10 and HDR HLG. And for the IPS LCD display panel, it’s actually very good.


Now, will Tecno Pova 5G get an Android 12 update since it comes running Android 11 with HIOS 8.0? Your guess is as good as ours. Navigating the user interface is smooth, thanks to the processor, RAM, and 120 Hz refresh rate. This smartphone is snappy and very responsive. Luckily you can uninstall some of the pre-installed apps here. But for the ads, those you might have to deal with. Yes, you can disable them from the notification center. To do so, long-press an empty part of the screen, tap on the ‘desktop settings’, tap on ‘other settings’, and uncheck the ‘zeros screen’. That special ‘peak proof’ feature is present here to prevent the next person from viewing your screen.


What about performance now? Well, Tecno Pova 5G comes with a MediaTek MT6877 Dimensity 900 5G (6 nm) chipset that delivers good performance, offers, good power efficiency, and snappier application response time. For the GPU it comes with Mali-G68 MC4. The phone also has 8 gigabytes of RAM front that can be expanded to 11 gigabytes of RAM. It is of the UFS 3.1 infrustructure. Onboard is 128 gigabytes of internal storage.


The Tecno Pova 5G packs a massive Li-Po 6000 mAh, non-removable battery. Good luck trying to kill this battery in one day. But hey, charging speeds are not so impressive here since it takes over a whole two hours with its supported fast charging 18W.

Our take

This Tecno Pova 5G is the first smartphone from Tecno to come with a 5G modem though we do not have 5G in Kenya. It is also the first from the brand to use the MediaTek MT6877 Dimensity 900 5G chipsets just to give you an idea of how powerful it is. Yes, the phone also has 8 gigabytes of RAM front that can be expanded to 11 gigabytes of RAM. It is of the UFS 3.1 infrastructure. We definitely recommend this smartphone.
