The device also has a larger display, and this makes it bigger, compared to Pouvoir 2.
Tecno Pouvoir 2 Review
Tecno Pouvoir 2 is a very nice phone, in terms of design as well as hardware making it up. The device measures 159.8 x 76.8 x 8.5 mm, while having a very sleek body. This smartphone comes in colours that were carefully selected by the designers of the phone. These colours are blue, midnight black and champagne gold. The device comes with an aluminium body, just like Pouvoir 1.
Tecno Pouvoir 2 comes with an amazing 6.0 inches liquid crystal display which is furthermore a high definition (HD) in-plane switching display. The large display has a standard resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels. This resolution leaves the smart device with a pixel density of 304 pixels per inch (ppi). The display of this smart phone has support for over 16 million colours which can all be identified by hexadecimal codes between #000000 and #FFFFFF.
Pouvoir 2, just like its predecessor, is a 4G LTE smartphone and also supports second generation and third generation mobile network technologies. With the help of the 4G LTE support, users of the mobile phone can use the internet with high-speed connections. However, using a 4G LTE network or any 2G and 3G network will require a micro SIM card.
In the aspect of storage, Pouvoir 2 does not have any significant improvement. The device features a 16 GB flash storage, just like Pouvoir 1. Note, the total free space of a build of the smartphone is less than 16 GB as the OS and pre-installed apps occupy some of this storage space. In case a user desires storage expansion, the storage space can be expanded with the help of a micro SD card that is not larger than 32 GB in capacity.
Tecno Pouvoir 2’s system is championed by a MediaTek chipset which has four processors. These processors all have a processing speed of 1.30 GHz and share tasks among themselves to complete the tasks in a shorter period. The chipset championing this system has the support of a Mali graphics processing unit (GPU).
As stated above, Pouvoir 2 comes with the same battery capacity as its predecessor. The smart phone’s battery has a capacity of 5000 mAh, making it possible for the device to be used for 4 days when placed on normal usage. Such a powerful battery makes this smartphone ideal for people who live in a place with poor power supply, and need a mid-range smart device.
Tecno Pouvoir 2 comes with two impressive cameras, one of them in the front of the phone, and the other at the back of the device. Sitting in the front of this smartphone is an 8 MP camera which takes epic selfies with the help of its enhancements. A 13 MP camera is positioned on the rear side of the smartphone. This camera also has enhancements and the support of a bright LED flash.
Pouvoir 2 features a 2 GB random access memory (RAM). A 2 GB RAM is no doubt a good RAM for a mid-range smart device. The 2 GB RAM gives room for the device to seamlessly run more apps simultaneously. A mid-range smartphone user will find this RAM satisfactory.

Tecno Pouvoir 2 Detailed Analysis
Appearance and Display
Tecno Pouvoir 2 has a nice appearance, compared to the design of Pouvoir 1. The smart device which is an improvement of Pouvoir 1, has a body dimension of 159.8 x 76.8 x 8.5 mm. Compared to 154.5 x 77.2 x 8.8 mm which is the dimension of Pouvoir 1, Povoiur 2 is longer but slimmer than its predecessor. This smartphone furthermore comes with an aluminium body.
Tecno Pouvoir 2 comes in three colours which are city blue, midnight black and champagne gold. The city blue and black are the most preferred colours of the smart device. Although champagne gold is not one of the most preferred colours, it is a very cool colour for the smart device. The aluminium body furthermore makes the device look better in these colours.
A 6.00 inches display acts as the display of Tecno Pouvoir 2. Such a large display is a very cool thing, and it makes the smartphone more desirable in the smartphone market. With the help of this large display, the user will have more fun using the smart device.
The 6.00 inches display of Pouvoir 2 is a high definition (HD) in-plane switching (IPS) liquid crystal display (LCD). This display has a great resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels. The resolution leaves the 6.00 inches display with a pixel density of 304 pixels per inch. This display furthermore has the support for over 16 million colours which can all be identified by hexadecimal codes.
Connectivity and OS
Just like Pouvoir 1, Pouvoir 2 is a 4G LTE smart device. The support for this technology makes it possible for a user of this smartphone to use the internet at very high speed. Downloads that take minutes on a 3G network will take some seconds to a few minutes on a 4G LTE network. Aside from having support for 4G LTE networks, the smartphone also has support for 2G and 3G networks.
As expected, Tecno Pouvoir 2 has support for the Wi-Fi and the Bluetooth technology. However, the manufacturer took a step further, by making this device support the USB-OTG technology. With the support of the Wi-Fi technology, Tecno Pouvoir 2 can join computer networks wirelessly. The Bluetooth and the USB-OTG technology makes it possible for the smartphone to use external peripheral devices.
Tecno Pouvoir 2 runs the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system. This operating system is a cool operating system as expected. The operating system is the version of the Android OS most 2018 high-end smartphones run. The OS has a number of new exciting features, and it furthermore features improvements to the Android 7.0 Nougat operating system.
Android OS is no doubt one of the best mobile operating system. The OS has one main competition which is the iOS. However, Android has beaten iOS many times to winning awards. Aside iOS, no other mobile OS can compete with Android. This OS exists as an OS that makes the mobile industry better.
Chipset and RAM
Tecno Pouvoir 2 is made up electronic components that are championed by a MediaTek chipset. The MediaTek chipset in question is a quad-core chipset. These four processors of the chipset all work together on tasks to help quickly complete tasks at hand.
It is true that some chipsets have eight cores, but it does not mean the eight cores work simultaneously. In octa-core chipset, the cores exist in two sets of four cores. Only a set of four core works at a time. Thus, featuring of four cores does not make Pouvoir 2 at disadvantage.
The cores in the MediaTek chipset that champions the Pouvoir 2 system have a common processing speed of 1.30 GHz. Majority of cores featured in mid-range smartphones have processing speeds between 1.25 GHz and 1.50 GHz. With 1.30 GHz cores, this smartphone will operate as expected.
A 1 GB random access memory (RAM) serves as the primary memory of the chipset championing the Tecno Pouvoir 2 system. For a mid-range smart device this RAM is enough to make the device work seamlessly. Regular Android apps will run on the smartphone with very little or no glitch.
Cameras and Sensors
Tecno Pouvoir 2 comes with remarkable cameras, one positioned in the front of the smartphone and another nicely placed on the rear side of the smart device. A 13 MP camera sits nicely on the rear side of the smartphone and acts as the primary camera of this smartphone. The 13 MP camera that is positioned on the rear side of the smartphone is well-enhanced. Some of its enhancements include geotagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, panorama, and LED flash.
The front of Tecno Pouvoir 2 features a cool 8 MP camera which has been tested to produce very impressive pictures. The camera produces these impressive pictures with the help of its enhancements. Some enhancements of this smart device include a LED flash, geotagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, and panorama.
Not all mid-range smartphones feature a fingerprint scanner, but Tecno Pouvoir 2 has a fingerprint scanner. The fingerprint scanner is an innovative approach to phone unlocking. This approach is easier and not susceptible to brute force. This approach to phone unlocking has its cons, which is why it does not completely replace existing phone unlocking systems.
Aside fingerprint scanner, Tecno Pouvoir 2 comes with other sensors; to name a few, the phone features an accelerometer, a gyro, a proximity sensor, and a compass. The phone will be unable to play some games without the presence of an accelerometer. The smart device will also have issues running some apps without a gyro, a proximity sensor, and a compass.
Storage and Power
Tecno Pouvoir 2 is equipped with a 16 GB flash storage as its internal storage. However, this does not mean the total free space will be up to 16 GB, as the operating system, pre-installed apps and some files occupy some storage space. It is possible for a mid-range smartphone user to use the device without the need for storage space expansion.
Pouvoir 2 however supports storage space expansion with the help of a micro SD card. Any micro SD card can be used to expand this smart phone’s storage as long as it does not exceed 32 GB in capacity. Making attempt to expand the device storage beyond 32 GB can cause the smartphone to malfunction.
Just as the primary selling point of Pouvoir 1 is its battery, the primary selling point of this smartphone is its battery as well. Tecno Pouvour 2’s system is powered by a 5000 mAh battery which can not be removed. The battery can be charged fully under 3 hours, with the help of a rapid-charge system featured in the smart device.
