  1. Ohh really, Kilode

    Its a low end phone na except for the massive and heavy battery

  2. This smartphone would be a good one especially at this time when light is a trouble in Nigeria ooooo

  3. There’s really no problem for this specs for heavy users of mobile phone jare….

  4. Tecno should step up from 1G Ram and android lollipop phones in this day and age. I guess 4G LTE also fast becoming a standard these days.

  5. It’s still relevant, considering our power situation, especially in Nigeria

  6. You never hear of their latest one called L8 plus? You must be jonsing. lol. That one is 2GB, I think. correct if am wrong.
