Read the candid review of the Tecno Boom J8 price, the specs, my views, opinion and where to buy in 2017
Tecno boom j8 is an ideal choice for customers that want a superb smartphone without breaking the bank.
The Boom J8 is the successor to the Tecno Boom J7 which shook the African Smartphone market some few years ago.
The Boom J8 was released in 2016, and after a year, the phone still has a touch of class that made users love it.
If you have an eye for good Smartphones, you will strongly put your money on the J8 knowing fully well that the phone is a classic budget phone.
The phone is great, however, it doesn’t go without the saying “ there’s no such product as perfect”
So here’s the deal:
I will reveal my opinionated verdict on what seems right and what doesn’t.
Don’t go crazy bashing me via the comment section, this is entirely my opinion and I might not sit right with you.
- Amazing built design
- Great rear camera
- Affordable & durable
- Average battery capacity
- The Internal storage 16GB is perhaps small to save files. When you consider that the OS itself uses quarter of the storage.
- Low RAM storage.

BODY & DESIGN
The body of the Tecno Boom J8 is built with premium plastic materials and the edges are reinforced with a metallic frame.
Coming to design, apparently the design is ripped from the iPhone 6 which makes the phone sleek and stylish. The phone doesn’t look bad for a copied design.
With that said, the display features a 5.5 inch IPS capacitive screen one with an amazing resolution of 720*1280.
The phone boasts of flawless viewing angles, however, I feel Tecno should have incorporated an HD screen to back up the claim.
Remember that I mentioned the camera as one of the Pros of the Boom J8, right?
Well, let’s see if it is true.
The Tecno J8 has a 13MP at the back with Auto Focus and LED Flash which is positioned by the camera. In addition, the camera’s, coupled with the flash are designed to take pictures even in low light areas.
The front selfie camera spots a 5MP which is an improvement on the J7’s 2MP camera
Overall, the camera of the phone is impressive and if you would whip out your wallet to buy the Boom J8, I promise you wouldn’t regret it.
PERFORMANCE, OS & SOFTWARE
Inside the heart of the smartphone lies the ultra-fast quad-core MediaTek MT6753 processor. More so, the J8 processor is clocked at 1.3GHz.
Since the phone lacks an HD display, Tecno, on their part did great to use a Mali-T720 graphics resolution. As It helps the phone to display scenic colors on the screen.
In the storage category, the Boom J8 carries a 2GB RAM making it better than the J7 at 1GB of RAM.
Finally, the phone runs the Android v5 lollipop.
BOOM HEADSET AND PHONE SPEAKERS
Straight out of the box, the Tecno Boom J8 comes with a Boom headset. The headset and phone speakers utilize the Maxx Audio technology that filters the uncluttered sound and produce the best quality sound.
There is no more to the battery than its 3000mAh capacity which can pull through the day on a fair use.
