Review: Tecno Pop 2 Specs & Price – 2020
Tecno Pop is one of the most unpopular Techno smartphones. However, giving its mid-range configuration, we believe that it deserves some attention. We know that it could be a perfect fit for a good number of people who love moderate yet performing Tecno smartphones. Tecno pop 2 is very much affordable and is available in a lot of markets in Africa. It comes with an Android 8.1 Oreo operating system and does not support the 4G network.
Appearance and Display
Tecno pop 2 has a good and attractive appearance similar to those seen in many mid-range smartphones. It comes on a plastic body with a 153.7 x 72.4 x 9.5 mm dimension. Tecno pop 2 dimension of 153.7 x 72.4 x 9.5 mm is equivalent to 5.66 x 2.85 x 0.37 inch. It has a body mass of about 144 grams. Tecno Pop 2 comes in three major colors of champagne gold or black.
Talking about the display, Tecno Pop 2 comes with a 5.50-inch display. To many, this size is not very impressive. Tecno Pop 2 has an in-plane (IPS) liquid crystal display (LCD). The in-plane (IPS) liquid crystal display (LCD) has support for over 16 million colors. Tecno Pop 2 also has a screen-to-body ratio of about 66 percent which is decent enough for a phone in its class. This smartphone has a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels, with a pixel density of about 200 pixels per inch. Another good feature of Tecno Pop 2 is its scratch-resistant glass screen.
This computing power of Tecno Pop 2 is almost the same as seen in many other Android phones. It comes with MediaTek MT6580A as its chipset. MediaTek MT6580A as its chipset is a very popular chipset found in several other smart devices of low-end status. MediaTek MT6580A as its chipset is a quad-core chipset that clocks at about 1.30 GHz. This makes Tecno Pop 2 a smart device with slow processing power and limited capabilities. We need to point out here that there is absolutely nothing to worry about Tecno Pop 2 as long as you dis not overload it with games and videos.
Mali-400 MP2, graphics processing unit of Tecno pop 2 handles all graphics-related tasks of this device. Tecno Pop 2 has an excellent chipset and GPU which does the job it is assigned to do very well.
Talking about the memory of Tecno pop 2, it comes with a 1 GB RAM. This size of RAM to many who love speed is small but fair enough for those just need a smartphone for moderate activities. Just like we pointed out above, if this smartphone is not overloaded, it will run smoothly.
OS and Storage
Tecno Pop 2 has a custom version of an Android operating system as it has always been the norm with Tecno smart devices. The operating system powering Tecno Pop 2 is based on the Android 8.1 (Go edition) Oreo operating system. The Go edition of this operating system is preferred because it does prevent Tecno Pop 2 from lags when it is been operated.
Tecno Pop 2 comes with 8 GB ROM internal storage with a MicroSD slot that can support an SD card of not more than 32GB of storage space. What this simply means is that this is a phone for people who do not have many media files like videos, pictures, and games.
Tecno Pop 2 has two cameras. The front camera is an enhanced 8 MP camera. This pixel size is moderate enough for people who love selfies in mid-range smartphones. The rear side of the Pop 2 has a 5 MP camera which is moderate enough too.
Tecno Pop 2 has dual SIM support. Unfortunately, just as we pointed out above, Tecno Pop 2 does not support the 4G network. This clearly puts this smartphone on the cadre of low-end Android phones. On the other hand, to enjoy fast internet, you can always use its Wi-Fi feature. You can also create a mobile hot spot network using this smartphone.
Tecno Pop 2 has a Li-Ion battery with a capacity of about 2,400 mAh. This capacity can last as long as a day if in moderate use.
