Battery Capacity.

The battery capacity found on tecno phantom 6 is a bit disappointing as it is a downgrade when compared to Tecno Phantom 5 battery. It is packed with a non removable 2700 mAh battery.

On the Plus version, a large non removable 4050 mAh battery is found. Don’t know why they packed the original version with so much small battery.

Security Measures/Biometric.

Both  2016 phantom flagships rock biometric eye/iris scanner. But an extra layer of security (Finger Print Scanner) is extended to Tecno Phantom 6 Plus. It is stylishly placed below its rear camera.

You don’t know how biometric works? Check explanation below.

A biometric equipment/device uses a reader or scanning device to scanned human biological data/characteristics, a software that converts the scanned information into digital form & compares match points and a database that stores the biometric data for comparison. This data are usually encrypted to prevent identity theft.

To convert the biometric data, the software identify specific points of data as match points. The match points in the database are processed using an algorithm that translates that information into a numeric value. The database value is then compared with the biometric input the end user has entered into the scanner and authentication is either approved/granted or denied.

The working principle of biometric remains the same, no matter what methodology is employed. That is, a record of human’s unique biological data is captured and kept in database and when verification is required, a new record is captured and compared with the previous one in the database. If it matches, it confirms the identity.

USB Type C on Tecno Phantom 6 (Plus).

This is new technology used in many phones and laptop manufactured today. USB Type-C port and connector is the latest connection which was finalized around late August 2014. USB Type-C is a lot more easier to use, faster in transfer rate and charging rate than its predecessor(USB Type-B). USB Type-C port measures 8.4mm by 2.6mm and also encourage reverse charging. Read more about USB Types and Versions. I am glad to witness Tecno mobile dancing to the tune of latest technology.

    You´ve covered pretty much most of the aspects but to backup what you said about Asphalt 8 running smoothly, you should have used a benchmark app. I say this because of the framerate i saw, which was kind of low (less than 30 fps) from what i could observe. Also people really need to know your price tag vs quality evaluation on devices. That´d help them a lot more to have a good pick. Apart from these points, i´m super happy that someone on this side of our continent is doing things the way they are supposed to be done. I´ll still watch my usual channels in whatever language, but now! i got you Guys too. Thumbs up!!! Good work. Keep improving.
