Compared to the Tecno Phantom Z and 5 Series, this base variant of the Phantom 6 comes with better software and hardware specifications. This includes improvements in design, operating system, user Interface, RAM, and user security. As the lowly speced version of the duo, the Phatom 6 is tagged the 'BEAUTY' because of its smaller display, size and less advanced specs. Even at that, its specs are commendable because they aren't really on the low side. Below, a review of the specifications, features and price of Tecno Phatom 6 has been given.



Overview Features

Display and Build

The Tecno Phantom 6 features a 5.5 Inch IPS Touchscreen display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and pixel density 401 PPI. Compared to its predecessor, this display size and resolution are the same, hence user experience might be greatly unchanged. Also, with the same resolution on a smaller screen when compared to the Phantom 6 Plus, users of this device should expect images whose quality are sharp, and an enjoyable gaming and surfing experience with its wide 180-degree viewing angle and 100% color gamut. Protecting the screen from the effect of scratches and cracks is a corning Gorilla glass 3 screen.

The phantom 6's body is made from metal to give it strength, durability, and a premuim look and feel. It has a dimension of 151.5*75.5*6.15mm and at 6.15mm thin, this device is slimmer than Huawei's P9 (6.9mm) and Apple's iPhone 7 (7.3mm), and can be said to be one of the slimmest smartphones with dual rear cameras. It can be held, move around with and slided into a pocket easily. This smartphone is available in different color options of Champagne Gold and Anthracite Gray. For biometirc authentication, the Phantom 6 features an Iris scanner to enhance user's security. This Iris scanner scans the user's eyes before unlocking the device, thereby restricting access to unauthorized users. 

Processor and OS

Tecno Phantom 6 is powered by a 64-bit octa-core processor with a processing speed on 2.0GHz, and a Mali-T720 MP2 GPU for rendering graphics. Tecno claims that this processor can offer an undisturbed experience because it is 28% faster and consumes 40% less power than the processor of the Tecno Phantom 5. 

It has an ample RAM storage of  3GB and an internal memory capacity of 32GB which is also expandable via microSD card (hybrid slot) upto 128GB. A large RAM size makes for better multitasking and switching between apps with little or no lags and an internal memory storage of that size ensures that users of this device have enough space for storing a good number of large files irrespective of their sizes. According to Tecno, about 5,120 songs in mp3 format or HD movies can be stored on this device.

The Phantom 6 runs on Tecno’s user Interface HiOS, on top Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which should be upgradeable to the latest Android OS, Android 7.0 Nougat upon its release. The HiOS allows customization of this smartphone with a collection of eye-catching themes and wallpapers. With about 10 themes provided on the HiOS, users will have little or no need to use third party applications to customize the Tecno Phantom 6. This OS also comes with an optimized app manager with command options such as 'freeze' app and 'app data management' to allow regulation of data usage by an app.


Camera

The Phantom 6 features dual rear cameras like the iPhone 7 Plus and these cameras have a SONY IMX258 13MP sensor and a Samsung's 5MP sensor respectively, with an F/2.0 aperture. While the 13MP camera auto-focuses on images to make them appear clear and vibrant, the 5MP fixed-focus camera focuses on objects lying within the camera’s line of sight. Both cameras can produce images with great quality even in low light conditions. Like the Phantom 5, the Phantom 6 also features an 8MP front camera with LED flash and wide angle lens. It can also an record 1080p full HD Videos at 30FPS.


Battery and Connectivity

The Tecno Phantom 6 has a battery whose capacity is 2700mAh and this capacity is lower than the 3000mAh battery of the Tecno Phantom 5. The battery is based on Li-polymer technology, is non removable and Tecno claims that with the light speed technology applied to its USB TYPE-C port , 10 minutes of charge can provide 124 minutes of talk time, 65 minutes of music playback time and 40 mins of standby time on 4G.

Phantom 6 has dual SIM functionality with dual Standby, where one SIM card slot can also be used as a microSD card slot.

  1. At first i thought the 2700mah battery was too small until i bought this phone, turns out it can last longer than most other phones with much bigger batteries. Really impressed with this phone.

    1. Goes to show it really isn't about the capacity of a battery that determines its battery life, the phone processor does too. The Phantom 6's Processor and OS ensure optimal usage of the phone's battery

      If you're impressed with the performance of the Phantom 6, most likely the 6 plus will wow you.
