Design and Display

Not a lot of efforts went into concealing the budget status of the Boom J7 in terms of its appearance. The story has changed with its successor. Although the Tecno Boom J8 still sports a plastic body, the design is more appealing to the eye.
Tecno Boom J8 is rimmed with a metallic frame. The look is more high-end this time. The handset crams in a massive 5.5-inch IPS display raising expectation of great wide viewing angles.
That expectation is a bit tempered, though, by an HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels – still decent for a device like this.

Camera and Storage

The Tecno Boom J8 is better-equipped than its predecessor for shot-taking. The main camera has been bumped to 13 megapixels and it features LED flash and autofocus. The selfie snapper has also received an upgrade to 5 megapixels.
Tecno Boom J8 comes with flash for impressive low-light selfies. For storage, the phablet offers integrated capacity of 16 GB, which is expected to be expandable by up to 128 GB using a microSD card.

Performance and OS

With a quad-core MediaTek MT6753 processor under the hood, the Tecno Boom J8 looks ready to deliver enjoyable performance for a low mid-range smartphone.
The 64-bit CPU is clocked at 1.3 GHz. It is paired a Mali-T720 graphics solution and RAM of 2GB capacity – for comparison, the Boom J7 had 1GB RAM.
The Tecno Boom J8 is powered by Tecno’s newly-designed HiOS software, a custom version of Android 5.1 Lollipo
