The Tecno Pop 5 Pro is inarguably designed as a budget device with the aesthetics of a pricier device. Under the hood, it’s fairly a standard budget device. It still has a micro-USB port, no fast charging, 5W charging speeds, and basic utilities like radio. The phone has a huge Li-Po 5000 mAh non-removable battery. It should be more than enough considering it’s a low-power device. Overall, it’s a basic phone, for basic use. No bells and whistles to be expected.
