After much anticipation, excitement, and to some point anxiety, Tecno L9 Plus was finally launched in Kenya earlier in March, 2017. The Tecno L9 Plus lived up to the hype that had proceeded its release date. It is by far a better phone compared to its predecessor the Tecno L8. It comes in a very impressive design with a slim metal frame, and a bulgy curved back, which makes it easier to pick from a flat surface.
The L9 Plus has a unique design with a bulgy curved back and sandstone textured back cover that is meant to enhance its handling and grip. Compared to its predecessor, the L8, it is far lighter weighing at only 152 grams and thinner with a thickness of 7.99 andmm. The buttons and ports are strategically located on the phone, with the audio port at the top, and micro USB port at the bottom. The volume and power buttons are on the right side of the device.
The Tecno L9 Plus has a 6.0-inch full HD screen and a screen resolution of 1080*1920 pixels. Its screen quality is by far better than that of L8. Thanks to its crystal clear display and sharp images, it is ideal for viewing images and videos.
Software and Performance
It operates on Android 7.0 (Nougat) .This has a 2GB RAM and an internal memory of 16 GB.Its Quad-core 1.3 GHz processor gives it a remarkable performance with a better multitasking capability compared to the L8. It’s Tecno HiOSUI makes its operation fluid. Its storage capacity can be expanded up to 128GB with the help of a microSD card.
4G Compatibility and Mobile Network Reception
In the 4G tests that I conducted, the L9 Plus responded well with the Safaricom network. It has an option whereby one can select the 4G/3G/2Gmode of connectivity. The 4G setting ensures that the connectivity is fast and one can stream videos online smoothly.
The Tecno L9 Plus, just like the other smart phones in the Camon range was built with its camera as the key selling point. It has a13Megapixel rear camera and a 5 Megapixel front-facing camera that is placed at the center just above the screen. This front facing camera with dual flash was perhaps one of the best features of the mobile phone as it guarantees an amazing experience when it comes to taking the perfect selfies.
The back camera is also awesome with dual flash and additional features such as autofocus and HDR. Despite the back camera being of the same megapixel as that of L9 Plus, it still manages to give better results. These two cameras can be used to take high-quality photos and videos even in low light conditions.
The Tecno L9 Plus has quite a remarkable battery life with a capacity of 5000 mAh.When using WIFI, the battery can last a full work day but will drain slightly faster over a 3G network. Over 4G network, it drains faster and you will have to recharge it at least once during a work day.
This cool feature enhances the security of the phone with the option of fingerprint recognition password management.
The Tecno L9 Plus is perfectly designed and is appealing. It’s the ideal phone for photograph and selfie lovers. The L9 Plus display and resolution is far much better compared to its other smartphones that are within its price range.
