Tecno Phantom Pad II Review, Specification and Price In Nigeria

Tecno Phantom Pad II Review

Are you looking for an android tablet that has the basic features that would meet your expectations of a device ? Or are you looking for a cheap android tablet that can compete with the likes of other high end devices in every possible way without losing its essence, then you are at the right place because I have found one that would match your expectation- THE TECNO PHANTOM PAD II a.k.a TECNO G9


The Tecno Phantom mini pad II to me is by far the best mid-range tablet that Tecno has produced which impressed me. The tablet which comes with a 1GB RAM has a vast number of features and qualities which I believe one would always look out for before purchasing such device. Factors like camera quality, internal memory space, SD card slot, size and build of tablet and most of all battery life are what we are going to look out for in reviewing this device. So read on as I’ll prove to you why the Tecno G9 is not just an ordinary cheap tablet but a tablet made for the local with global mindset.

Under the hood, the Tecno Phantom Pad II runs Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) with 1GB RAM. This device has the capability to run high end games like FIFA 2014, Grand Theft Auto, Mortal Kombat and other games without slowing down thanks to the MediaTek chipset that handles the graphics with a quad-core processor of 1.3GHz. Honestly, I opened about 5 heavy games on this tablet with seven light applications and yet, the Tecno G9 handled it well without hanging or even rebooting itself.

The Tecno Phantom Pad II also has a 7.85-inch IPS touchscreen with 1024 x 768 pixels resolution which i believe is wide enough unless you want to go for a 10 inch tablet which other brands like Samsung, Lenovo and Apple has produced. So, if you are a movie lover like me who wants an mid android tablet that can handle movies, then you should go for this tablet. Using the tab under sunlight, you would have to increase the brightness level to the highest to see properly.

Next in line is the internal or phone memory. The Tecno G9 tablet has an inbuilt memory of 16GB but unfortunately, 13GB is available to the user. I noticed that the remaining 3GB was used to store the many apps which are pre-installed when you boot the device. Applications like camera, messaging, contacts are all stored within the 3GB but Tecno G9 still offer an SD card slot in which you can put a 32GB memory card if you feel that the 16GB is not enough for you. Well, i would advise you buy an original 32GB memory card if you want to enjoy this table.

At the back of the Tecno G9 sports a 5 megapixels camera which is also same at the front. The 5mp rear camera comes with autofocus and LED flash with recording of 720p HD quality videos. Honestly i would not give much credence to the camera because Tecno scored an average in terms of the quality but compared to Samsung and Apple tablets, this tablet’s camera quality is by far the best especially during the day. To achieve better camera result at night, you would have to set the camera to night mode and focus it near the object.


The tablet which comes in either white or dark blue is a single normal sim tablet because i noticed that many blogs  wrote that it is a dual sim. The only dual sim tablet released by Tecno mobile for now is the S9 which is a 6 inch phablet. The tablet supports 3.75g, 2G, 3G and also has Wi-fi and Wi-fi hotspot in case you want to share data with another system or device.  Though the tablet looks familiar to its predecessor, Tecno P9, it has a better graphics than the G9.

The Tecno P9 offers a two back facing loudspeaker with beautiful design like that of an Ipad. Tecno would have to improve in the sound quality as the speakers weren’t that loud but moderate.Although, it can be tweaked. Also, you can connect a flash drive, mouse and keyboard (both bluetooth & USB keyboard) to this device via the use of an OTG cable.

Finally, in terms of battery life, I would score this tablet 9/10 because the 4200mah battery seems modest for this tablet. At 100% bar, I ran a test by watching a seasonal movie “Agent of Shield” on this tablet with the earpiece connected from 9am and by 2:15 pm, I had 50% battery. I left it for an hour to do some other things, came back by 3:20pm and met it at 49%. Then I played FIFA 2014 until 6pm and I had 25% remaining before I charged the Tablet. So from experience, this tablet is really good when it comes to battery life.

All said and done before i give the spec below, the only disadvantage i saw in the the Tecno G9 tablet is the speaker quality which i had to research before i used a code to increase it, apart from that, this Tablet passed other test i put it through.
