If you want the basics of email, phone calls and a spot of Whatsapp and don't want to drain much of your bank account to get it? The answer is Tecno W4 which is well-equipped in almost all areas. If you are interested, check Tecno W4 spec and price on Jiji.ng for more details, plus there are many hot deals available every day.
The W4 is not the slimmest smartphone out there, there is a bit of bezel above, but small enough to be comfortably used in one hand. The device itself is similar in size to an iPhone 6/6S/7, measuring at a palatable 143.50 x 71.30 x 8.50 mm.
It feels lighter than those phones, though, which is likely a result of the plentiful use of plastic in the construction. However, it is well built and has an aluminum-like frame.
The display is a 5-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Navigation keys are on the screen while the volume rocker and power button are placed on the right side of the phone. The display is sufficient to clearly showcase the essentials, it is still quite sharp and will serve you well for reading, watching videos, or basic gaming.
The heart of the headset is a quad-core MediaTek processor clocked at 1.3GHz coupled with 1 GB of RAM that runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box. It feels like enough power for the majority of basic tasks, such as all standard Google apps you'd expect to see are here, such as Chrome, Google+ and the likes of Play Games, Play Movies and TV, as well as Play Music.
If you're a regular smartphone user wanting to play games, the W4 is not the one. The smartphone has 16GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot that can be used to expand the memory up to 128 GB.
Even the best budget phones struggle with capturing a good picture, and it’s probably no surprise to learn that the W4 doesn’t do much to stand-out here, either. Speaking of photos, the 8-megapixel camera is fine for some quick photos in the park on a bright day, but it lacks the vibrant colors or exposure balance.
The snaps taken in low-light turn out to be quite grainy. The 2-megapixel front-facing camera is not much to talk about.
The smartphone is equipped with a 2500 mAh non-removable battery. Considering a low-res screen is being powered by a not particularly power-hungry processor, battery life is a starring attribute of the W4.
Web surfing, music playback, or email browsing - will drain your battery in a day. However, it charges quickly enough, just under 2 hours and 30 mins to juice back up, despite the lack of any form of fast-charging.
