  6. Emmanuel Godwin says:

    1. Khaleesi says:

  7. Khaleesi says:

  8. david says:

    please do a review of the hios3.0

  9. Waiting for review, hoping Infinix throws out something with same or better specs with a cheaper price.

  10. Anonymous says:

    Kk i have hearing you people, let me go and start saving money.

  11. KingAbsolute says:

    The only thing I like about this phone is the 6GB RAM and processor.
    They say it has 20MP front camera + dual camera 12MP/13MP but we all know that’s not what makes phone cameras click. I’d go for Phantom 6 plus or Phantom 5 for this.
    The price is way above. But still an awesome device.

  12. Emerson says:

    I would really love to see the P30 on the next ‘Zero’, but I still keep wondering why they always go for P instead of the X. 128k with those specs is good enough.

  13. George Jinn says:

    TECNO try. But i would keep that 128K for the Nokia 7 when it finally retails over here. TECNO no be spec sheet we go chop.

  14. ayo says:

    please…. you will see better bezelless phones with the better Spec… more cheaper… Tecno is a huge pile of crap… Go to and you will see better phones

  16. Kenny says:

    Os update for how many years? Can the dual 12mp and 13mp cameras beat the single 12.3ml of the Pixel 2 XL, well It’s a good development but nothing to be excited about.
    Chai, iPhone X preorder sells out in minutes, even though it’s $999 , Apple has taken over the world.

  17. Enny says:

    Woow the price is really nice

  18. Sherif Price says:

    Yeah am loving the Tecno phantom 8 specs, most especially the 6 GB ram, and the camera – 20 megapixel is no joke for a front camera and the 12/13 rear camera is the real deal, Tecno means business this time around. Great. Just the price is much ooh, Tecon mobility should help us reduce the phantom 8 price down to 100,000 Naira.
