Tecno POVA Design

Tecno, a company owned by China’s Transsion Holdings, has released a new smartphone to cater to the growing mobile demand. The Tecno POVA flaunts a 6.8-inch LCD screen with a 720 x 1640 pixels HD+ resolution. The display offers a 20.5:9 aspect ratio and a 90.4 percent screen-to-body ratio. The design includes a plastic body and weighs 215.5 grams. The rear panel houses the quad-camera setup and also the fingerprint sensor – completing the smartphone look.

Tecno POVA Hardware Performance

The Tecno POVA draws power from an octa-core Mediatek Helio G80 chipset built on a 12nm architecture. The SoC is coupled with ARM Mali-G52 GPU, 4GB RAM, and 64GB default memory capacity. Tecno has given users the option for storage expansion up to 256GB with the help of a microSD card. The hardware performance of the Tecno POVA is pretty efficient, allowing users to seamlessly experience all their smartphone tasks, including browsing, gaming, video playback, and more.

Tecno POVA Camera Performance

For imaging, the Tecno POVA sports a quad-camera setup assisted by AI. The sensors include a 16MP wide-angle primary lens with f/1.85, a 2MP depth sensor, a 2MP macro shooter, and an AI QVGA sensor. One will find the LED Flash to assist in photography. Tecno has included an 8MP AI camera for selfies and video calling. The cameras are capable of recording videos at 1080p@30fps, and support features like HDR, Bokeh, AI Camera, Slow Motion Video, and so on. The camera setup is pretty mediocre, and the low-light photography performance can be slightly disappointing.

Tecno POVA Price-To-Specs Ratio

Tecno POVA is available in two models, costing Rs. 9,999 for the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant and Rs. 11,999 for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage. For the asking price, the Tecno POVA offers some good features like an immersive, large display and an efficient performance. That said, it has some tough competition from the like of Redmi 9 Prime and Poco M2, which offer better camera specs.

Tecno POVA Important Features/Highlights

The Tecno POVA comes with a large 6,000 mAh battery, which is one of its key highlights. The battery is assisted by 18W dual IC fast charging support, which further enhances the overall performance. Also, the Tecno POVA runs HiOS 7.0 based on Android 10, which offers a smooth software experience.

Tecno POVA Verdict

Tecno POVA comes as one of the latest entries in the budget segment, however, it has some tough competition. If you’re looking for a smartphone within Rs. 10,000, Tecno POVA is a good choice. However, do note that there are several other choices in the market that offer even better features.

How do we rate a Device?

Rating a smartphone is a tedious process and a lot of parameters have to be considered before judging the overall performance of the device such as display, camera, processor, RAM, storage, battery, and the pricing.

So, here are how these specs will affect the real-life usage of a device and why how we meticulously consider each of these points to rate a smartphone.


Cameras have evolved a lot over the last few years and multi-camera setup is a new norm. We consider various parameters like MP count, aperture size, pixel size, image stabilization to rate a camera system of a smartphone out of 5. Any device that scores more than 3.5 can take good photos and videos and if a phone scores over 4, then it will be one of the best camera smartphones in the market.


Though battery seems like an underrated feature and we look at the battery capacity, fast charging supporting technology, and even the wireless charging capability is also taken into consideration to rate smartphone's battery capability.


The display is the face of a smartphone. And there are a lot of parameters like the panel technology (IPS LCD, OLED, TFT) and other parameters also taken into consideration like the resolution, pixel density, and refresh rate.

Value for Money

A smartphone could have great specs, but if it is not priced well then you might not get the best value-for-money. So, we compare a smartphone with the contemporaries to rate the value-for-money of a device out of 5.


This aspect is decided on various sub specifics, such as availability of microSD card slot, the amount of RAM the device offers, processor capability, and the network support. This parameter has more weightage when compared to other departments.
