Tecno D3 Detailed Review –What you must know before you buy a D3!

In this article, I shall provide a detailed review and specification of Tecno D3 which is part of Tecno mobile Android series, and all that a prospective buyer and user must know about the smart phone.

Some few months have passed since the first announcement of Tecno D3 but we found out that the phone still make

news among mobile users across Nigeria, China and the rest of the third world market. I shall proceed to let you know more than the basics things you must know about the Tecno D3 Android phone.

Design: The Tecno D3 is solidly built with a design similar to the Tecno n3 and Tecno T3 (Java). The rounded rectangular design will of course invite the prospective buyer to want to explore the device.

 

The weight of the phone is impressive; it’s not light and not too heavy. With such a weight (slightly heavier than the n3), ironically one would readily expect Tecno D3 to be packed with great features. It will be fair to state this early that Tecno D3 is a failure but I will not assert that now.

Features: Tecno n3 is loaded with an Android OS! A high mark for that –but sadly or unfortunately the phone comes with Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread which is now fast becoming obsolete L this is the first sign that suggests that the cash value of Tecno D3 may worth more than the device itself. But do not conclude yet. Read on.

Memory: It’s so bad that many users don’t know anything about the memory of their phone until they buy it. If you are one of those I guess you will regret acquiring a Tecno D3 device. Some will fool you that the internal storage of Tecno D3 is 512Mb but the real end user available memory is just about 160Mb L c’mon! You know what this means? Only very few of Android applications will dwell in this phone! Of course not all apps can be moved to the SD so those >5Mb apps like Maps and Facebook, etc. will take great percentage of your space and leave you with little than nothing! This reminds me of those bad days when I in vain tried to play with the much celebrated but poor Samsung Galaxy Y pros which came with an internal storage of only 170Mb.

The RAM of Tecno D3 is not bad at all. I mean the RAM is excellent for the device. 512MB RAM is OK, isn’t it? The end user RAM is just about 428Mb. The main problem is the internal memory.

Connectivity: Am sorry to say that the worst thing about Tecno D3 apart from its internal storage is its Internet connectivity! What else should I say of an Android device called Tecno D3 that cannot boast of at least a 3G connection when other devices are talking of 4G?! You will certainly not thinking of streaming live videos or watching a steady YouTube video with this device. Tecno D3 reminds me of Blackberry Curve2 which is another highly celebrated but good-for-nothing smart phone.

Battery life: The 1450mAH battery isn’t a great idea. In reality, the phone will last up to 16 hours when mostly idle but only about 6 hours when in heavy usage. This is not good!

Many other things can be said of Tecno D3 but I leave you to study the full specifications yourself.
