Here is a Review of the Tecno Phantom 9 Mobile Phone

Tecno Phantom 9

According to a lot of people, Tecno Phones are some of the reliable phones out there. An average of 9 out of a possible 10 means you’ve got a phone you can invest your money in. And more importantly, a phone you can trust. Mind you, this review is based on a first hand/out of the box experience we had with the phone and the reviews collected from people using the device. Before investing in this mobile phone, you should check out the review of the Tecno Phantom 9.

The Tecno Phantom 9 is the next model on our Tecno Mobile Phone Review. The Phantom series hit the market a few years back. But it was noticed when the Tecno Phantom 8 was launched 2 years earlier. The fact that it is the predecessor means there will be lots of improvement (which you will find out as we continue). Here is a review of the Tecno Phantom 9.

What makes the Phantom 9 Thick – The Review

Launched on the 10th of July 2019, the phone is unarguably one of the best Tecno Phones for 2019. With a resolution of 1080 by 2340 pixels on a 6.40 – inch touchscreen coupled with its U-shaped notch cut – out which gives it an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and a density of over 400 PPI (which is the Pixels Per Inch), we have a big phone in our hands.

Out of the box

Apart from its display specifications, other things are worth discussing. One of which is the phone’s AMOLED screen (though still under the phone’s display), its no gainsaying that the SAMSUNG AMOLED screen makes the display (yes you guess right) sharp and of course sleek. Although it seems smaller than Phantom 8, it makes up for this with the 84% STB (screen-to-body). Also, the phone has a fingerprint located on the screen (also known as a Built-in on-screen fingerprint) sensor. The on-screen security feature is undoubtedly an impressive one.

Beneath the trunk

Beneath the hood of the Tecno Phantom 9 lies the beast responsible for the phone’s abilities. Some of such are the Octa-core MediaTek MT6765 Helio P35 SoC which gives a processor speed of about 2.35 GHz. It is fully AI optimized.
We will never forget about the photo/camera section. In this section, there are three camera sensors used at the back. The three camera sensors include 16MP (which is the main sensor) plus PDAF and a quad-LED. Also, the field lens measures 2MP and the angle lens stands at 8 MP. Meanwhile, right in front of the device is a huge 32MP and well-designed dual-LED which makes it perfect for the selfie junkies out there. The phone is powered by a 3500mAh battery. It runs on Android 9.0 Pie which is perfectly based on the new HiOS v5.0.
