Body and Display
Tecno Pouvoir 4 has a thickness of 9.2 mm and its body is made of a glass front, plastic back, and a plastic flame with 3 stunning gradient colors to choose from – cosmic shine, ice jadeite, and fascinating purple
It comes with a 7.0-inch Dot Notch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 720 x 1640 pixels translating to 256 ppi density and an 83.6% screen-to-body ratio.
Yes, this display offers an immersive cinematic display while streaming or watching videos, gaming, sharing, or browsing through your phone.
However, we found this device to be overwhelming while holding it with one hand for people with small hands thanks to its big size. Again, the body might be a turn-off to many since it is made mostly of plastic with no in-built screen protector. But due to its pocket-friendliness, one might decide to look the other way.
Platform, Performance, and Memory
Tecno Pouvoir 4 runs on HIOS 6.0 operating system based on Android 10.0 and allows a wide range of user customization and is bundled with utility applications that allow users to free up memory, freeze applications, limit data access to applications, and more.
It is powered by Helio A22 chipset and a 20.GHz Octa-core processor paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM (internal storage). You can expand the internal storage to accommodate more of your files through the dedicated microSD slot and you don’t have to remove SIM card while fitting or replacing it.
Pouvoir 4 performance is acceptable and will run smoothly while streaming content, running apps, or gaming. And with it price tag, this kind of performance is quite generous.
Tecno Pouvoir 4 Camera
Tecno Pouvoir 4 comes with a quad AI rear/main camera with a 13MP primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, 2MP macro lens with f/2.4 aperture, 2MP depth sensor with f/2.8 aperture, and QVGA.
This camera is not bad at all and will capture the world around you just fine. And with a Quad-LED flash, it doesn’t matter what lighting conditions you are in –night or day, it will do just fine.
The selfie camera is a single with 8MP and f/2.0 aperture. Have you ever heard of a budget smartphone with a LED flash for the selfie camera? Well, this is one of them –one of the areas this phone excels in. It has a dual-LED flash for the selfie camera let alone a single flash. Even some of the high-end smartphones miss the selfie flash.
The rear camera can record high definition videos (1080p) with fine output quality even in low light scenarios.
Tecno Pouvoir 4 battery is monstrous with 6000mAh but not very fabulous under stress. While powering resource-hungry operations such as gaming, sharing, or streaming, we found it wanting. The headset we used did not impress us.
We guess the display is too large as well and drains a lot of power. To make this even worse, the charging speed is normal in case you want to recharge.
The manufacturer claims it remains powered for 4 days of standby, 792 minutes of movie time, 516 minutes of video recording, and 638 minutes of gaming. It depends on what you do with this phone but part of this claim is just a marketing strategy.
In terms of features, Tecno Pouvoir 4 is very generous.
It comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, accelerometer, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, G-sensor, microUSB 2.0, FM radio, GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, game mode optimization, dual stereo speaker, and a 3.5mm jack. The 3.5mm jack ensures you can connect this phone to your existing headsets.
However, Pouvoir 4 misses NFC for secure payment and Infrared port though not very necessary.
