Tecno Pouvoir 3 – Review, Specs & Price in Nigeria


Tecno Pouvoir 3 is a phone we have everywhere. Hardly would you find a phone store which does not have this device. But what is up with that phone? What is special about it? Well, this is what we intend discussing. The phone was released in June of 2019, and the design of the product is pretty impressive.

It also comes with a pretty powerful battery, and its cameras are also among the interesting things about the product. The price of this product has dropped because of the release of so many other new pones, so you would not be buying an overpriced product.

Design and Display

The design of the Tecno Pouvoir 3 is one of the things that have been contributing to the popularity of the phone. The item is a product that deserves having a 5-star rating in the aspect of design. The design also shows that the design team at Tecno are experts at what they do. The Pouvoir 3 comes in three colours which are: gold, black, and blue. If you do not like one colour, you would almost certainly like at least one of the other two.

It is becoming a standard thing for mid-range Android phones to come with displays not less than 6.00 inches, and the Tecno Pouvoir 3 follows this standard. The product is equipped with a display of 6.20 inches, and this display is claimed to have a resolution of 720 x 1,500 pixels.

A resolution of 720 x 1,500 pixels, leaves the 6.20-inch display with a pixel density of about 268 pixels per inch (PPI). We also find the display to have support for over 16 million colours. As regards the screen-to-body ratio of the device, Pouvoir 3 has a screen-to-body ratio of about 80 percent.

Computing Power

We have many people who claim they would give the Tecno Pouvoir 3 a 3-star rating when it comes to computing power. Their reason for this is that the phone is powered by a chipset having four cores which can be clocked at 1.30 GHz. This is the kind of processing speed low-end devices have, so it is far from what everyone expected. Tecno could have done a good job equipping the phone with at least a chipset having cores that can be clocked at 1.50 GHz. However, if you feel this is a thing you can manage, then you should read on.

The graphics processing unit that supports the MediaTek MT6739WA 1.30 GHz quad-core chipset of the Tecno Pouvoir 3, is the PowerVR GE8100. This GPU Is pretty good at what it does, and we believe it would perform up to expectations.

We have a 2 GB main memory supporting the processors of the MediaTek MT6739WA 1.30 GHz quad-core chipset. The main memory of 2 GB is not bad for such a phone, so we do not consider Tecno to have disappointed in this aspect. Once you do not have a lot of heavy apps running in the background, you should have no problem playing games with this product.

OS and Storage

Tecno has its own custom Android operating system, and this OS is called HiOS. The OS is a thing we have so many Tecno device running, and the customization has nothing special to offer Android users. The benefit of the customization is rather meant to benefit the company. Rather than running the stock version of the Android OS, the Tecno Pouvoir 3 runs the version 4.1 of the HiOS. This HiOS 4.1 is based on the Android 8.1 Ore operating system.

Builds of the Tecno Pouvoir 3 are items that come with 32 GB of storage space. Storage of 32 GB is far from being unimpressive, for a mid-range smart device, so we give the company a 4-star in this aspect.

With such an amount of storage, you can have a lot of apps installed on your phone. It also gives room for having a good number of heavy media items on it. And for people who would need more storage, you can expand the device storage with a micro SD card. Any micro SD card not having more than 128 GB of space, is guaranteed to work with this device.


We are pretty pleased with what Tecno did in the aspect of the camera. It seems the company is trying to make up for the chipset of the phone. This smart device features a very cool 13 MP camera in the front. The camera is a highly-enhanced peripheral, and it has the support of a bright LED flash. That is not all, we also find the camera of this product to be a thing you can use to take 30 fps 1,080p videos.

The rear side of the Tecno Pouvoir 3 comes with a 13 MP camera. The camera is also not a plain camera, it is rather loaded with lots of enhancements. Just like the front camera, this peripheral has also got the support of a bright LED flash.


We hardly see single-SIM smartphones coming from Tecno, and the Tecno Pouvoir 3 is not one of them. This smartphone is rather a dual SIM smart device. It comes with support for micro-SIM cards, and both SIM card could be placed on 4G networks simultaneously.

However, its support for 4G does not mean the phone has no support for 2G and 3G networks. You can always step down to a 2G or 3G network, whenever you want. In addition, if you find your mobile networks to be slow, the Tecno Pouvoir 3 has support for Wi-Fi, so you can get yourself connected to a Wi-Fi network.

To transfer items from and to your phone, there are a number of ways you can do this. And some of them include Bluetooth, hotspot, Wi-Fi, and micro USB 2.0 port. It is, however, unknown if this device has got support for USB OTG.

The battery powering the Tecno Pouvoir 3 is a 5,000 mAh Li-Po battery, making the device one of those that would take a very long time, before requiring a recharge.
