The Tecno Pova 3 is one of the latest offerings by Tecno, the Chinese tech giant. The phone was released back in 2021 in succession of its predecessor the Tecno Pova 2 which had incredible features and offered great performance.
With this new model, the performance of the old model has been optimized and has also seen major improvements in many aspects of the phone.
This phone is one of my favorite phones by Tecno. I guess many people also believe the same because the level of popularity it has gained in the Ghanaian market is shocking.
This is a result of its incredible features and high performance and to crown it all, its affordable prices.
Most Ghanaians are fans of affordable stuff and in the case when the thing has some level of quality they become obsessed with it.
Sales of the phone are on the rise because everyone who buys it ends up recommending it to their pals.
The content of this article will contain details of all the features of the phone such as its performance, display, camera, battery capacity, and many more.
You’ll also get to know the designated prices of the two variants of the Tecno Pova 3 at some top retail shops in Ghana.

About Tecno Pova 3 Body
The Tecno Pova 3 has a very incredible design which makes it exceptional in comparison to other smartphones in its price range.
You hardly see this kind of design on a mid-range smartphone. Although the greater part of the phone is made out of plastic it is not quite noticeable because of how it is designed.
You’d mistaken it for some expensive finishing materials. At the front, there is a glass touchscreen display that has an almost spotless punch-hole notch where the selfie camera is placed.
The display has very thin bezels to provide a large viewing angle for users. However, the back panel of the phone is the most catchy part of the phone.
While some phones have simple designs and painting this phone comes with a more complex but elegant one.
The matte-like surface texture of the back panel is divided by a strip of a glossy-looking surface with some writings on it.
The device comes in different colors and includes; Electric Blue, Tech Silver, and Eco Black.
The phone features a massive 6.9-inch IPS LCD display. The display is one of the components of the phone that gains the most attention because of its size.
The large size of the display also comes with the advantage of enjoying a large viewing area.
Watching content on the display becomes more captivating because of the display quality and size of the screen.
It has a resolution of 1080 x 2460 pixels and a 90Hz refresh rate that makes the responsiveness of the touchscreen very smooth.
It also offers high-pitched image colors and decent contrast.
Tecno Pova 3 Battery
The battery that powers this phone is very marvelous. The phone is equipped with a 7,000mAh lithium battery.
This is my first time hearing of a battery with 7,000mAh powering a smartphone not even the high-end smartphones I have come across.
With this battery powering your phone I can bet that you can use the phone for several activities for 3 days straight without plugging it.
This is even more than what I consider a ‘power bank’ phone. It also supports ‘Fast charging’ technology which boosts the charging rate of a device.
With a charging rate of 33W, you can charge up the high-capacity battery to its full capacity in less than 2 hours via a USB Type-C charging port.

After Unboxing, What Can You Find Around The Tecno Pova 3 Phone?
When you look at the back of the phone you are greeted with a triple camera bump. The main lens of the camera has 50 MP picture quality which is supported by the other cameras to offer the best photography you can find on any phone.
The other cameras at the rear are a 0.08 MP depth sensor and a 0.08 MP macro lens. The rear cameras are lined up vertically at the left top corner of the back panel.
Besides the camera bump is a Quad-LED flash that serves as a source of light when taking photos in a dim background and also as a notification alert.
Photos produced by the cameras are breathtaking especially when shots are taken at bright places.
At the front, the phone sports an 8 MP selfie camera that takes care of all your selfie shots and video calls.
It also has a dual LED flash attached to it to provide good lighting when taking shots. The cameras also support Night Vision which allows users to take nice shots even during the night.
The picture quality of the cameras is comparable to some of the premium smartphones we have in our system.
Because of how advanced this phone is, it doesn’t feature a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner as seen in old models but rather comes with a more intuitive design which adds to the elegance of the device.
The fingerprint scanner has been integrated with the power button located on the right side of the phone.
Its responsiveness has been optimized so with just a single touch it authenticates the fingerprint of the user to grant him/her access to the interface of the device.
Just above the power button is a volume button which is used to regulate the volume of sound the phone makes.
At the bottom part of the phone, you’ll find several components such as a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB Type-C charging port, and twin stereo speakers.
Inside Tecno Pova 3 Phone
Under the hood of the Tecno Pova 3, you’ll see an octa-core Mediatek Helio G88 processor which administers all the activities of the phone.
In other words that is the central unit of the phone. It has an average processing speed of 2.0GHz.
The processor is coupled with 4GB 6GB and 64GB and 128 GB. The high storage capacity of the phone allows users to store tons of files, applications, movies, music, documents, and many more.
Due to the enhanced performance of the phone, you can use it to execute a series of tasks without encountering any problems.
With this phone, you can play all your high-end games such as Call Of Duty, Free Fire, FIFA, etc, and also stream your favorite videos on major streaming platforms such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Disney Hotstar, and the rest.
Out of the box, the phone has an Android 11 OS installed on it. The OS also comes with a HIOS 7.6 skin by Tecno and has lots of features you’d love to try.
The user interface design is in direct contrast with the ones we always see. This phone has a control center similar to that of an iPhone which appears when you slide your finger from the top right corner of the display downwards.
The control center also contains almost all the features of the iPhone. The user interface looks very good and will enhance the efficiency of the user.
