Tecno Pouvoir 4 Pro Advantages (Pros)
- It is pocket-friendly. Tecno is a brand that produces affordable handsets loaded with premium features.
- Tecno Pouvoir 4 Pro Supports a 4G network. This means you will be on the cutting edge of a 4G network and, therefore, you can download and stream content with a 4G speed so far your network provider supports it.
- Another advantage is that this device has a big immersive and cinematic display. Content streaming, gaming, sharing and browsing through your phone will be fun and distraction-free thanks to its Dot Notch display.
- It has a beautiful slim design with a 9.2mm thickness. The colors and the texture for Tecno Pouvoir 4 Pro especially the back make it stand out. The selfie camera is packed in a small u-cut at the top bezel and the main camera is packed at the back together with the dual-LED flash. Beside the rear camera is the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.
- Given the price tag attached to Pouvoir 4 Pro, the performance is acceptable. It will run most games and apps effortlessly.
- The two versions of Tecno Pouvoir 4 Pro -4/64GB and 6/128GB versions -are very generous in terms of memory. The 4/6GB RAM is adequate to deliver great processing performance while the 64/128GB will be adequate to store your files and in case you want more room, you can expand it through the microSD slot.
- Another advantage is that this gadget has a fabulous quad AI main camera to capture the world around you in stunning photos. The selfie camera is also brilliant and will show the world the true you. To make these two cameras perfect, they perform really well in low light scenarios since they are both equipped with LED flashes.
- Tecno Pouvoir 4 Pro has a loudspeaker and the traditional 3.5mm jack. This means you can connect this device to your existing headset. Nowadays, many handsets are coming without this jack –a headache to many e.g. Samsung Galaxy S20+.
- And there is the advantage of a monstrous battery that will keep you powered all day long playing games, streaming content, calling, sharing, and more. A 6000mAh capacity battery is a monster of a battery. In case you run low, you can recharge with 18W speed.
Pouvoir 4 Pro Disadvantages (Cons)
- To some, it is just a Tecno smartphone. Nothing is wrong with it being a Tecno, but some people associate Tecno phones with cheap average handsets with no unique features or capabilities.
- Another disadvantage is that the body is mostly made of plastic material. Tecno does not mention whether the screen has protection and for that, we shall assume it doesn’t come with an in-built screen protector. With the price attached to it, we guess it should have some form of screen protection.
- It is not waterproof or dustproof. If it falls in water or becomes wet, only nature will rule whether it shall be the same phone you once loved.
- Pouvoir 4 Pro, just like Tecno Pouvoir 4 is very huge for small hands. If you have small hands, you might find it overwhelming to hold with one hand. Again, such a big phone will feel uncomfortable in your pocket.
- We don’t know what that QVGA does or is just a marketing strategy to sell more of it. But anyway let’s forget it.
- Another disadvantage is that Pouvoir 4 Pro lacks NFC and Infrared port. Lack of NFC means you cannot make secure contactless payments with it in a near payment reader terminal. Infrared port is not that important but it means this phone cannot be controlled with a remote.
And the question is “Should you buy Tecno Pouvoir 4 Pro?”
We think it is worthy of consideration.
It is pocket-friendly with the much-needed premium features. A premium brand with features similar to those of Pouvoir 4 Pro would be unaffordable to many -may be to you too. If that is the case, go for this device. Go ahead and enjoy those premium features and capabilities in a handset you can affordable.
