The Tecno Phantom 6 Plus has been tagged the 'BEAST' because of its large display size, Internal storage and humongous battery. Sporting a design similar to Huawei’s Mate 8, this smartphone has features that are better than those of  its co-variant, the Phantom 6, and its predecessor, the Phantom 5.  It has a better design, more RAM and Battery capacity, and an enhanced level of security. Below, a review of the specifications, features and price of the Phantom 6 Plus has been given.



Overview Features

Display and Build

Tecno Phantom 6 Plus features a 6 inch Full HD LTPS Capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and pixel density of 367 PPI. Its large display size categorizes this device as a Phablet and its high resolution offers a screen that is bright, crisp and clear for reading, browsing, and watching videos etc. Shielding the screen is a Corning Gorilla Glass v3.0 that reduces the effects of scratches and cracks on the screen.

The Phantom 6 Plus's body has a 98.1% metal ratio, hence this device has a metal unibody with a premuim look and classy feel. This body curves slightly at the back, has rounded edges to enable a firmer grip of the device and its back is non-removable, thereby protecting the internal components of the device.  It has a dimension of 160.35 x 83.46 x 7.7 mm which gives it a slim build, making the Phantom 6 Plus still easy to be held and moved around with. The smartphone is available in Champagne Gold and Grey colours. 

Like the Phatom 6, the Phantom 6 Plus also features an Iris Scanner that scans the user's eye before unlocking the device (only if scanned Iris matches the Iris of the user pre-saved on the phone). This variant of the Phantom 6 also features a fingerprint scanner that can unlock the device in 0.3 seconds, as well as a free TrustLook antivirus software. Enabling both scanners would require scanning of one's fingerprint, then the eye print before unlocking the device. This makes the Phantom 6 Plus the first Tecno smartphone to feature dual biometric securities like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and a pre-installed antivirus (tri-fold security). 


Hardware and Software 

Tecno Phantom 6 Plus is powered by a 64-bit Deca-core Mediatek Helio X20 processor, which is split into two quad-core processors with processing speed of 2.0GHz and 1.55GHz respectively, and a dual-core processor with a processing speed of 2.1GHz. This processor with its fast processing speed can ensure speedier operations, provide an enjoyable experience especially when playing graphic Intensive games and generally, an acceptable level of performance.

The RAM is large enough to support mulitasking and switching between apps seamlessly, and the Inbuilt storage can support several apps and games Irrespective of their sizes. Tecno claims that the RAM can run 32 apps simultaneously without lags or hangs and the inbuilt storage can support up to 25 HD movies or 12,000 songs in mp3 format. 

The Phantom 6 Plus runs on Tecno's custom UI HiOS, based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The HiOS features lots of creative wallpapers, themes and font styles for customizing the phone. It also provides convenient camera access, commands to regulate app data usage, onscreen makeup for radiant photos, and a quicker way of freeing up app caches and temporary files in-order to ease memory space. This user Interface does not only uniquely distinguish Tecno devices like the Phantom 6 Plus from other Android phones, it also promises a good user experience.

Tech Lass's Verdict:

The Tecno Phantom 6 Plus specs are remarkable as they are ones that would be expected from a brand's flagship device. But for the price it is being offered, which is rather on the high side, It might lose out in the race with several other devices that are less expensive but offer almost similar specs. It comes with great specs like an ample RAM storage, good cameras and large battery capacity, but does not come with the moderate price tag reputably known for Tecno devices. But then, for the specs it offers, the Tecno Phantom 6 Plus is worth the price.
