TECNO Q1 ANDROID PHONE features, specifications and review


[ A+ ] /[ A- ]

We first got the alert of the new Tecno Q1 Android phone when it officially hit the stores last month from an Official Tecno representative in Nigeria but we waited until now to give you a full review of this unique Tecno Android phone called Tecno Q1. As usual this review is detailed and we advice those that copy and paste Mymobnet! reviews to at least give us a link back.

Design and Packaging:     We have reviewed a lot of phones so far and we have bluntly stated to our readers what we like and what we don’t like about the phones we reviewed without any sentiment attached, so believe us when we say that the Tecno Q1 Android so far has got the best design so far!

This unique Smartphone is packed in a rectangular box and when you unveil the box, you’ll soon recognize that the Tecno Q1 is a wonder to behold. In our other reviews like the Tecno D5 and Infinix X350, I stated that Android lovers are getting tired of the now typical rectangle with curved edges design of almost all the Android phones from China so we say kudos to Tecno mobile for introducing a unique and the first Android phone with a Touch screen and a QWERTY keypad! Tecno Q1 looks like a modified Blackberry Porsche and this will become a blow to Blackberry if we can get more of Android Touch screen phones with QWERTY key pad.

Operating System:             We love most things about Tecno Q1. It is loaded with Android 4.0 ICS operating system which is a very nice idea in line with the latest technologies.

Display:        The display of Tecno Q1 is superb. A 2.6 inch screen with a 480*320 resolution will give you an excellent picture quality. Although we dislike it that the screen size of Tecno Q1  is as small as 2.6”, we remind our readers that it is not bad with this phone because it is originally meant not to be touch screen and we are yet to explore what a touch screen and a QWERTY keypad will look like on an Android platform. What we are saying is that the design of the keypad may not let the screen get bigger than this.

Speed: I thought this Tecno Q1 will come with a 256 RAM like the Blackberry Curve 3 but I was surprised that it has a 512 RAM! The Q1 is fast, as fast as needed for it and the apps respond quickly on command.

 Camera: When I reviewed Gionee P1, I wrote that “A nice camera is a great feature most of our readers love to see.” This is so true and Tecno Q1 has the best camera resolution Tecno has offered so far. The 5MP back and 0.3MP front is same with that of the now famous Tecno n7. Of course you need a bigger screen to see the full size of what Tecno Q1 camera can offer. The camera flash accompanied can take an image in a completely dark room (though noisy), and it takes an excellent image in the normal environment. So you get the idea of what this camera looks like?

Internet Connectivity:    Tecno Q1 has a 3G (up to HSPDA) which is great for high speed browsing and for Video calling, Live TV streaming, YouTube, heavy file download and etc.
