TECNO W1 is a budget Android smartphone with a 4-inch display. There isn’t much to expect from cheap Android phones, but the W1 stands apart from the pack in a few ways. Fr one, while most of its competitors offer 512 MB RAM, it offers 1 GB. And then, it runs Android 7 Nougat. That is very up-to-date software for a 2017 cheap smartphone.
There is a quad-core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz to keep things running smoothly and a 1800 mAh battery (large by this class’standards) to keep everything going. The front camera has flash too. This is a MobilityArena Editor’s pick for anyone in search of a good cheap smartphone.
