The TECNO PhonePad 3 is a recently launched budget Android Phablet that is a successor of the PhonePad II.
The PhonePad 3 features some decent entry-level specs with the highlight being the 7.0-inch display, an attractive design and a large battery capacity. That said, here is what the TECNO PhonePad 3 has to offer.
Display Size: 7.0-inch
Display Type: IPS LCD
Screen Resolution: 1280 x 720 Pixels
Screen Resolution Density: 210 PPI
Screen Protection: None
The PhonePad 3 features 7.0-inch IPS LCD display. The display has a 1280 x 720 Pixels resolution giving the Phablet a measly 210 ppi screen resolution density.
A 1080 x 1920 Pixel Full HD resolution would have been much better for the 7-inch display and thus it is kind of a disappointment that the PhonePad 3 has just a 1280 x 720 Pixels HD resolution.
However, the display profile is still good and is in line with its Ksh. 16,999 price tag.
Dimensions: 188 x 98 x 7.85 mm
The TECNO PhonePad 3 has a fantastic design. The design gives the device a premium look and feel. The highlight of the design is the 7.85 mm svelte profile.
This is in addition to the brushed metal design that makes the tablet look more expensive that it actually costs.
Operating System: Android 6.0
CPU: 1.3GHz Quad-Core
Internal Memory: 16 GB
Micro SD: Yes, up to 64 GB
A 1.3GHz Quad-Core chipsets powers the PhonePad 3 and this is coupled with 2GB RAM. The profile is pretty much the standard to expect from budget phablets in 2017.
However, I am of the opinion that TECNO could have done a bit better with an octa-core chipset. You get 16GB as internal storage and a MicroSD slot that can handle up to 64GB of memory.
Rear Camera: 13 MP
Secondary Camera: 5 MP
LED Flash: Yes
You get a 13 MP camera for general photography and a 5 MP camera for your selfies. The PhonePad 3 includes a dedicated app for scanning of business cards using the rear camera.
Battery and Extras
Battery Capacity: 4100mAh
The TECNO PhonePad 3 comes with a 4100 mAh battery. The battery is large enough to last 48 hours on a single charge. Sadly, the smartphone has no fast charging.
