TECNO Mobile recently released a new model to its Pouvoir line-up that boasts a lasting battery power and shockingly low price.
But for this review, we’ll be focusing on TECNO Pouvoir 4 to see if it does live up to its name. Here are the technical specs:
7-inch HD+ (1640 x 720) display
2.0GHz quad-core CPU
Quad-rear cameras w/ 13MP primary
8MP front camera
Fingerprint scanner (rear)
Dual Stereo Speakers
HiOS (Android 10)
Cosmic Shine, Ice Jadeite, Fascinating Purple
Build and design
One thing that catches tech-savvy people’s eyes is its large display, which sports a 7-inch screen, perfect for binge-watching shows or playing games without eye-strain. Due to the size on top of its massive battery, carrying it around is quite heavy, so it doesn’t feel cheap for its price.
For this review, we have the Cosmic Shine variant. Pouvoir 4 has a fantastic design, although the back is made of polycarbonate with a glossy finish that is prone to finger smudges. This is why it comes with a jelly case to protect the phone from such prints. Even with the jelly case, it’s still relatively slim for its size.
Display, camera, and ports
Pouvoir 4 comes with 1640 x 720 resolution, displaying vibrant colors that rests easy to the eyes. It can also be viewed well under sun-lit places, so there’s no problem for those who are always on the go.
It got plenty of cameras, in which the Pouvoir 4 also features a wide cam arrangement. They’re appreciatively slim that prevent the build from grazing on surfaces.
Unfortunately, there’s no Night mode, but for those who are familiarly technical with photography, it might not pose a problem.
The bezels on both sides are slim, with its volume rockers customized as the “Fire” key in certain games and a fourth red button dedicated to Google Assistant feature.
The best part of the build is that it features dual stereo speakers paired with digital sound effects that fix all sound effects for audiophiles to enjoy an immersive listening experience either through the speakers or using headsets.
It houses 32GB storage capacity, a downside since the phone already stores in-built apps or bloatware.
Pouvoir 4 performance is nothing to scoff at either, as it’s backed with 12nm MediaTek Helio A22 chip that can keep up with popular games such as Mobile Legends, PUBG, or Among Us. The model’s attractive part is its “Pouvoir-ful” battery capacity of 6,000mAh battery that can grind non-stop activities up to 2-3 days without charging. The little downside to this is charging it back up will be slower than average.
Pouvoir 4 retails at a shocking price of PHP 4,590. Its performance and extreme battery power are an attractive feature recommended for heavy mobile users looking for an affordable alternative. Opt for Pouvoir 4 for those looking for a cheaper alternative with a large display and finely-tuned performance.
