About Tecno Pova 2 Network
The Tecno Pop 7 supports the standard network bands used in the majority of smartphones.
It is compatible with 2G, 3G, and 4G networks. Access to the internet will not be an issue when using this phone because it offers robust and fast internet connectivity, allowing users to surf the web with ease.
Other connectivity features of the phone are Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Hotspot. They all aid users in connecting the device to that of others to share resources such as files, browsing data, internet connection, and many more.
About Tecno Pova 2 Body
One peculiar thing about this phone is its weight. It is quite heavy to hold in one hand for a long time due to the large battery pack under its hood.
It comes with a standard build for most mid-range devices. Apart from its glass screen, it has a plastic frame and back panel.
The back panel has been adorned with some patterns to give it a sleek look. The back panel has a matte-like finish which minimizes the risk of it falling.
The several color variants of the phone include; Polar Silver, Power Blue, and Dazzle Black. The large battery pack has also contributed to the thickness of the phone as it measures up to 9.6mm on its sides.
Laying on the hood of the Tecno Pova 2 is a 6.9-inch display which is based on an IPS LCD panel.
The display has a resolution of 1080 x 2460 pixels and offers a 90Hz refresh rate which makes its response to touch very swift.
This is nothing like what some of us have experienced using some low-end smartphones when the screen has a slow responsiveness to touch which makes its usage boring.
It has a round hole notch at the top which houses a selfie camera. With the massive display of the phone, you can enjoy watching some movies while munching some popcorn or playing video games.
Tecno Pova 2 Battery
It is hard to come by a budget smartphone like the Tecno Pova 2 which has a large battery capacity which some highly expensive smartphones lack.
This mid-range phone is equipped with a 7,000mAh lithium battery which supplies endless power to the device.
Even the likes of iPhone 13 Pro Max do not even boast of that level of battery capacity but they cost at least x2 the price of the Tecno Pova 2.
The phone has a charging rate of 18W which can get the battery juiced up to 100% when it runs low within 3 hours via a USB Type-C charging port.
Once you get the phone charged to its full capacity you are assured of more than 48 hours of constant use.

After Unboxing, What Can You Find Around The Tecno Pova 2 Phone?
At the back, you’ll find a box-like camera bump that has round corners. However, it does not protrude from the back that much so it can be placed flatly on a surface.
The camera bump is made up of quad cameras and quad-LED flash. The primary camera has a picture quality of 48 MP and it is accompanied by a 2 MP macro lens and double 2 MP depth sensors.
The cameras have the Auto Focus feature which helps to take very accurate shots without stressing much on the focus of the camera.
On the round notch at the top of the screen, there is an 8 MP selfie camera that comes in handy when having video conferences and taking selfie shots.
The photography of the phone is awesome especially when shots are taken at very bright backgrounds.
The Tecno Pova 2 has adopted a new design feature where the fingerprint scanner is integrated with the power button.
So while you press the power button to switch on the phone it will simultaneously scan your fingerprint and authenticate it to grant you access or deny you access by matching your fingerprint with the ones it recognizes.
The volume button can also be found just above the power button.
One ideal feature of this phone is also its speaker system. The speakers of the phone have been integrated with the earpiece at the top of the phone.
Therefore at the bottom section, there will be only two components and they are a 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB Type-C charging port that has an 18W charging rate.
