    it beats logic to have octa core with 1GB RAM? Right? the screen still cant play Full HD Video & that ppi is rubbish. But that battery size is sooo appealing

    • Hi Dennis,

      That one was an error. I am betting on some 2 GB RAM for the Phantom Z (just like on the R7).

      The display has always been the Achilles heel for Tecno Smartphones. However, fancy displays are very costly. For example, the 1080p display on the S5 contributed to about 25% of the bill of materials.

      Tecno Mobile is all about low cost devices, if they forsake for an all fancy device, they lose out on their competitive advantage.

      The battery is also one of the highlight features of the Tecno Phantom Z. It is exactly similar to that one found on the LG G3, the same battery capacity that obliterated the the Galaxy S5.

        From all the blogs i have read all say its 1 GB RAM.
        The battery on Tecno is Lion against Lipo for LG G3, Lipo being the advance version of Lion. Lipo keeps more charge than Lion but all in all that size is epic.
        Regarding the screen its a fail to have such a big phone more than 5’5 and a ppi of 220 is a pain to the eye,
        Kevin, this 16MP camera cant record Full HD video?

        • Hi Dennis,

          I think we have right here a Tecno Mobile Enthusiast :) The Phantom Z specifications vary from source to source, and thus we will have to wait for the official specifications once the device is unveiled.

          On the battery ‘saga’, you are right, the Li-Po batteries are an advanced version of Li-ion batteries. However, it doesn’t necessarily mean they are better.

          Li-Po batteries are lighter and and can meet sudden energy requirements but are expensive to make and have a low energy density.

          To put in simple language, Li-Po batteries are more like Uasin Bolt, super fast but with low endurance, Li-ion batteries are more like Tegla Loroupe not so fast but with super human endurance.

          On the screen, i totally agree with you, a big ass screen with a tiny ppi is a fail. Its a reminiscence of those cheap Chinese clones. Also, a 16 MP snapper that cant do 1080p is just an insult to techies.

          By the way, sorry for the delayed reply (i just saw the disqus notification)

            Hi, by any chance can the phantom Z battery be used on a phantom a+

          • Hi Rasmutu,

            I have no idea on whether that is possible.
