The screen features a 7.85-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2000 x 2296 pixels, which delivers stunning visuals and vibrant colors. What we loved most is the fact that the display supports HDR10+ content, ensuring that you enjoy high-quality videos and images with enhanced contrast and brightness. Tecno ensured that with the V fold you are going to get premium built quality because they ensured the frame of the phone is made of metal while the front and back is covered with a Corning Gorilla Glass Victus basically ensuring that you get a device that is durable and is resistant to scratches and cracks. We were impressed by the overall built of the device especially the premium look and feel that oozes out from the Vfold.
The performance of the Tecno Phantom V Fold did not disappoint us, the device is powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset, which is currently the fastest processor available in the market as of May 2023. They didn’t stop there, Tecno ensure to pair the processor with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage ensuring that you get a smooth and efficient experience especially when multi-tasking with different applications, the internal storage is huge enough to store all the applications that your heart desires, large media files and any other type of data you want to store using your phone. The phone also comes with an in-built 5000mAh battery that supports fast charging, therefore in the unfortunate event that your device runs out of power, you are able to charge it quickly and get back to using it without having to wait for a long time.

Honestly, we found the performance of the Tecno Phantom V Fold top-notch, and particularly loved the fact that it is well-suited for users who demand a high level of performance and reliability from their smartphone.
The camera for the Tecno Phantom V fold has to be one of the big things that we were excited to try. At the back, we have a versatile triple camera featuring a 50 MP wide camera with a focal point of f/1.9, you then receive a 50 MP telephoto camera with an optical zoom capacity of 2x and the final camera set at the back is a 13MP ultrawide camera. The rear camera captured high quality detailed and vibrant photographs with an excellent dynamic range. We were happy to discover that the rear camera comes equipped with optical image stabilization and phase detection autofocus which came in handy when capturing sharp and blur-free images even in low light conditions. At the front, you receive a dual selfie camera with a 16 MP wide sensor and an additional 32 MP wide camera. I would say that is WILD, the selfie camera also comes with LED flashlight that allows you to capture stunning selfies and group photos but this device will blow your mind when it comes to vlogging because of its ability to shoot videos of up to 1080p@30fps. Another thing that we noted is the fact that the selfie camera supports advanced features such as portrait mode and beauty mode, allowing you to enhance the selfies that you take using this device.
Aside from the foldable display, powerful processor, large battery capacity, and top-of-the-line cameras. The Tecno Phantom V Fold has other features that we were huge fans like the fact that it supports fast charging and 5G connectivity giving you the peace of mind that you are purchasing a phone that is up to date and you won’t have the need to upgrade it anytime soon unless 6G connectivity comes out. When it comes to protection, this smartphone comes with a fingerprint scanner and facial recognition. The device equally supports a range of connectivity options some of which include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and NFC. The Tecno Phantom V Fold comes with a standard 1-year warranty, which covers any defects or issues with the device. I simply love the peace of mind that comes with the fact that if you spent over 100,000 shillings to purchase a device.
