Design and Framework

The design of Phantom 9 is a bit similar to that of Spark 3 Pro. The device matches a wide and flooding screen with a superb coated edges. With the fingerprint scanner placed on the screen, the front side also features it’s a massive 32MP camera affixed at the mid-top of the screen. Metal forms the main material of its design which covers from the back through the edges with little chamfer to allow smooth insertion and pull-out from pocket. The back side features its triple camera that along with an LED Flash just below it with Tecno inscribed at the bottom left. The entire body is coated to be shiny and smooth while also forming a firm grip with your palm.


This is where I can’t really pass judgment given the fact we have seen devices with smaller battery mAh lasting longer than even ones with higher mAh. The fact is we have seen several Tecno devices even in the Midrange category that come with bigger battery mAh. However, one should expect a superb battery life with this 3500mAh of battery.

Display and Screen Size

6.4-inch Full-HD with 1080 x 2340 display pixels. Tecno seems to be having it right recently in this aspect. Tecno Phantom 9 comes with a relatively large screen size which seems to match the demands of this day. Not just the big screen but it matches that with 1080 x 2340 display pixel to assure quality imaging. Moreover, the display is further enhanced by its Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with 16M colors. This is exactly what Tecno users over the years have been clamouring for.

RAM and Processor

Multitasking tasking takes a whole new dimension with this 6GB of RAM. One should expect a speedy device in this particular product. The RAM combines superbly with its powerful 2.35 GHz Mediatek Helio P35 processor to give an all-round performance with an edge.

Internal Memory

Tecno Phantom 9 comes with 128GB internal memory as default. This can be further expanded to more than 500GB with SD Card if need be. The space in the system frees the product up thereby allowing a good output delivery.

My Verdict

Tecno Phantom 9 represent quality at the highest level. Some may see bragging as the reason for purchasing products like Apple or Samsung but believe me Tecno Phantom 9 has what it takes to match these names.
