This time round the Phantom series gets a battery upgrade up to 3500mAh which is very good. If you check my screen recording of the Phantom 8 below you will see that I used the device for 15 hours and still had 23% left on the battery. It took only one and a half hours to fill it up to 100% while using the charger provided.
It’s worth mentioning that the Technology Phantom 6 had a 2900mAh battery just for comparison.
As a bonus, Tecno agrees to replace your cracked 3 months after the date of purchase. So in case of any accident there is no need to worry. But even if the Tecno Phantom 8 were to fall down, the Phone case really helps even in face down drops.
The honourable mentions are features that may be ignored in a typical unboxing or specifications blog post about the Technology Phantom 8 but are awesome features that require mentioning nonetheless.
1. The T-Point App
The T-Point app is an international area navigational tool that is used to access apps quickly and launching the multitasking window. Apart from those functions, the T-point can also be used to go directly to the home screen without the need for using the main navigation buttons at the bottom.
Check my screen recording video below of the Tecno Phantom 8 for more details.
2. Eye Care
Apart from having the normal brightness control on the drop down menu, the Technology Phantom 8 also has Eye care mode that reduces the amount of blue light that the screen produces. This makes the screen easy on the eyes especially at night.
3. Micro Intelligence
The Micro Intelligence feature allows makes the Technology phantom 8 ease of use even much more easy. The micro intelligence allows for settings such as music control on a blank screen possible, the 3 finger screenshot and double tapping to wake up among other features to work.
4. Fast charging
When those two lightning icons show up at the top that means fast charging is activated. Just a 20 min charge can almost fill the battery to 100 percent.
