Tecno are back with a budget phone called the Tecno Pouvoir 2. But wait, what’s with the weird name pouvoir.
Well, according to the dictionary, Pouvoir as a noun means; Power, Authority and as a verb; can or may. Whether you chose the former or the later as your definition. The word shows possibility and will power.
How does this relate to the Tecno Pouvoir 2?
Well the phone packs a whooping 5,000mAh of battery. In a developing country, where electricity is rather inconsistent. This power packed phone provides the possibility and will power to use the phone through the day on a single charge. How amazing!
The Battery alone doesn’t make up the phone. Therefore, let’s look at some of the key specs below.

Design X Display
Talking about design, Tecno utilize the same design used on devices like the Tecno Spark K7 and Spark k9 Plus. The same polycarbonate material is used. To be very honest, all the colors except black stick out like a sore thumb as the colors appear dull. The texture is quite good in hands and the 6.0 inch screen fits in perfectly.
Slim bezels plus HD resolution make the Pouvoir 2 a joy to use. Thanks to the display resolution of 1440 X 720 pixels and 2.5D glass, what you get is crisp & quality display.
The primary camera is located at the rear and the flash is an inch below, while the front camera features a single camera plus flash.
Awards? No, at least not in this category.
The camera includes a 13Mp camera on the rear with flash, while the front sports an 8MP camera plus a single LED-flash.
If you are into Tecnography – you’ll be disappointed to know this phone won’t give you those HD and professional pictures you want. However, other alternatives like the Camon CX, Camon X Pro, Camon 11 and its variant would suffice.
In all, the camera manages to perform well. But if you want more than average, you have to look at the aforementioned options. Considering the price of the phone, there’s not much to complain about. You get what you pay.
Software X Hardware X Performance
Tecno Pouvoir 2 integrates a MediaTek MT6737 processor with a Mali-T720 MP1 GPU for swift action. Coupled with a 2GB of RAM, you’d find it easy to multi-task. However, 2GB will not suffice for playing HD games.
Again, the internal storage clocks at 16GB, while the internal memory utilize almost 4GB to run the OS, that’s remaining 12GB for users to store files. The respite is the SD Card storage which could be expanded to 128GB.
Regarding software, the Tecno Pouvoir 2 provides the Android 8.1 Oreo with HIOS customized interface.
It also has a face ID which I doubt it’s efficiency. I guess, you’ll have to try it for yourself and tell me how well it works.
Tecno proves its mettle in this category. 5000mAh is too small? iPhone users, do you have anything on the battery life?
I guess not.
The 5000mAh is an overkill period. Since the screen resolution doesn’t drain battery life, you’d bask and dance with this phone till you get sore.
On the downside, the phone doesn’t come with a quick charge, which could have made the battery near perfect.
Tecno Pouvoir 2 Price in Nigeria
