#TECNOL8Fifty50 User Review


I often wonder how I used to survive each day when I did not have the #TECNOL8FIFTY50 in my life.  It seems like another time,  another world. A world where I had to carry my charger along wherever I was going in addition to having a power bank.  A world where the moment I stepped into any place or office,  the first thing I would be looking out for is a spot to put my phone on charge so it doesn’t die on me. I no longer belong to that world.

When I read on the pack of the #TECNOL8FIFTY50 that the battery was 5050  I did not appreciate what it means. I’m not a techie you see,  but I love phones and know what I wanted in a midrange phone.  Like Oliver Twist,  I wanted more.  Most of all I wanted more battery time.  I also wanted to be able to take selfies and photos clear enough to share on Facebook and Instagram.  I wanted to be able to enjoy using my Twitter,  Telegram,  IG and other apps and games without the phone dragging. I also wanted a phone that is aesthetically appealing so I wouldn’t be shy to hold it in my hand or drop it on a table during meetings.  The #TECNOL8FIFTY50 ticked all the boxes.

Before long it became my primary phone.  My other phone must be wondering why we broke up.  I didn’t really hold up a candle to my new suitor. The battery life of the #TECNOL8FIFTY50 was both the cake and the icing on the cake.  What is more,  the TECNOL8 could be used to bring my other phone back to life when it fails. It’s been over a month of romance and the honeymoon is far from over.



Two other things.  My #TECNOL8Fifty50 gives live to my once primary phone literally.  When my other phone is down like it is wont to,  I use my L8 to resuscitate it.  Now isn’t that neat!

Second,  a few people are wary of the fact that it has just 1Gig RAM.  Their fear is that it will be lagging or hanging.  So far, this has not been my experience even though I have allowed  several applications run at the same time.


So would I recommend the #TECNOL8FIFTY50?
