  1. Great posting from great lover and sponsor of good things.i just got this phone yesterday.it’s pretty good.
    I really enjoyed your postings and would like to enjoy more.While am getting down to get myself accustommed to this new device,can you pls enlighten me ant the feature of a form of light(not flash)beeping from the upper left hand part of this device and why and what is it for?I will appreciate.Thanks.

  2. Techno can be pathetic sometimes, what is the difference between the pouvoir 2pro and pouvoir 3, and I was patiently waiting for the upgrade and boom its same as the pouvoir 2pro, the worst part about it are
    1. It runs on the previous Android version 8.1 when every one was looking forward to the 9.0 pie
    2. The camera is the same as the last one 13f- 13b
    3. It still uses 2gig /3gig ram this one literally broke my heart. I was really hoping on getting something a lot better than this shit they presented.

    I guess we ll just switch to the Huawei phone or the awesome Infinix s4 with lots of amazing futures.

  3. As students, Tecno Pouvoir 2 Pro is better than Pouvoir 3, cos the RAM content of the former is higher than the latter.

  4. My problem with the phone is the cpu that clock2.28 is like back ward compare with p,2pro.that clock 1.30

  5. very good device, got a bigger 6.2 inch screen and 32gb rom. though its still a 5000mah device.not bad actually

  6. At least Tecno would have just maintain the 3gb ram on the pouvoir 3, they fucked up here I must confess
