Another Battery Beast from Tecno – the Tecno L8

You would agree with me that before purchasing a smartphone, one of the things we look out for is the battery capacity; and in these current times with power failures and what have you, people have come to rely heavily on power banks. In the case of the Tecno L8, I believe you would depend less on your power banks because of the massive battery this thing packs: a whooping 5050mAh! Honestly, that should get anyone through a whole day with moderate to heavy usage; and in cases of low usage, it could last for two whole days. All these are being inferred from the paper specifications and real life usage might vary but not very much.


One thing I have noticed is the fact that having a device with at good battery usually means sacrificing a couple of things. The most common being RAM; which is true in the case of this device as it has just 1GB of it. I’ll let you read the other specs below:
