All About The Boom: The Tecno Boom J8 Unboxing, 360-degree View Included.

I’ve had the Boom J8, Tecno Mobile’s music phone which was launched some days back for a while now and I can’t wait to show what it has to offer, both the good and the bad, but first an unboxing.

THE BOOM J8 UNBOXING

 PACKAGING

The first song that came to mind when I saw the yellow package is:

However, the unique package is blue and yellow.

WHAT ACCESSORIES COME WITH THE J8?

Pretty boring stuff, but one added benefit made Tecno score a point with their accessories.
The random stuff includes your Smartphone case, which is nothing fancy

Charger & USB Cable


And the killer piece, the headphone.  But more on the headphone later.


MEET THE J8, TECNO MOBILE’s LATEST MUSIC PHONE.

The Boom J8 is one slim 5.5-inch device that is made of plastic. Thanks to its weight and size you have a lot to hold onto without the feeling of it being heavy (P.S:You can drag and zoom the 3d image below to see the angles).


 

WHY DOES IT LOOK LIKE AN iPHONE?

The first time I showed off this device, someone said  it looked like the iPhone 6 at first glance

How? For one, you have the dual speaker grills placed below the phone.

Also, you have the antenna lines, similar to that of the iPhone, but truth be told, the similarities end there.


A TOUCH OF CHANGE?

Even though you still have your regular 3.5mm earphone jack port placed on top of the device

The dual speaker grills changed the game for the Boom J8. Correct me if I am wrong, but isn’t this the first time a Tecno phone has dual speaker grills and unique placement?

Another pass mark is the uniquely designed volume and power buttons placed on the right side.

THE NON-REMOVABLE BATTERY LOOKS TOUGH

When you open the plastic back cover, you’d notice that the Boom J8 has a non-removable 3000 mAh battery, but I reckon that the fellas at IFixit might have a thing or two to say about the way Tecno covered up the battery i.e. it gives the impression that it might be hard to fix should anything go wrong with it. But I trust my computer village boys ;).

You also have your dual-micro-SIM card slots and the SD Card slot

CAMERAS AND SENSORS

The back of the device houses the 13MP camera with flash and the Tecno name inscribed on the phone

Meanwhile, the front view houses the 5.5 HD IPS Touchscreen, with a 5MP front facing camera placed on the right side and the sensor & front-flash placed on the left.

NOT Every time IN EAR HeadPHONE, SOMETIMES Supra-Aural Headphone

You don’t get the luxury of an earphone when you buy the Boom J8, what you’d get is a lightweight headphone, that might not impress you when it comes to quality (more on that in the full review)

I love the color

Like you must have read, the Tecno Boom J8 debuts Tecno Mobile’s new OS, the HIOS and I have uncovered some pretty cool and not so cool stuff about it, so stay glued for the full review!

    Tecno kicking a*ses (In Kay’s voice)

    1. Kay says:

      LOL!
      Hell! they sure are!
      They’ve changed strategy and its looking promising.
      No more releasing “smartphones” every two weeks 🙄

  5. ỌBÁDÁRÀ says:

    … WELL, SINCERELY, I HAVE TO SAY THE PHONE IS SLEEKLY PRETTY. WHAT IS INCARCERATING MY ATTENTION HERE IS THE HEADPHONE! AM AN ADDICTED USER OF EARPHONES/EAR BUDS/ HEADPHONES, THIS WILL GIVE ME A CONSIDERATION. EVEN IF THE HEADPHONE IS NOT THAT GOOD, THE PHONE FOR SURE WILL HAVE A GOOD SOUND QUALITY WITH A GOOD HEADSET OR EARPHONE…

  6. omanemoses says:

  8. Kay says:

    Hey Tobi, please confirm the chipset the device is running on. is it MT6753 or MT6735 cos the former is octa-core while the later, quad-core.

  9. BenKafor says:

  10. Rose says:

    Hopefully, someone will buy this phone for me

  11. Rose says:
