Why Tecno S3? What about Tecno S1 and Tecno S2? Whatever you may be thinking please note that this Tecno S3 is not in any way related to the Samsung Galaxy S3 device. It is a unique phone of its own proudly made by Tecno Telecom.

If you are new to Mymobnet! E-Tech Magazine and blog please follow us on Twitter and Facebook to stay up to date with our reviews.

We shall proceed to review and discuss some of the features of the Tecno S3 Android phone.

Hardware and Design:

The Hardware and design is typical of Tecno Smartphones. The S3 may be the true upgrade of the Tecno n3 phone. It looks much alike to it too.

This Tecno S3 as usual is all plastic which helps to bring the price down and has no Home Button key but Touch all through except at the sides. In short it has the typical design of Android phones of its class.

Operating System:

Tecno S3 is preloaded with Android Jellybean 4.2. Things are changing rapidly in the Tech world. In as much as we commend them for loading this device with Jellybean 4.2, we remind Mymobnet! readers as we normally do that there is Android 4.3 and 4.4 and also that the over the air update of Tecno devices is almost impossible. But Jellybean 4.2 is an OS you should own and use, it is very stable too so Tecno carefully chose it to grace this S3!


The screen size of this device is 3.5 inches and it has a fitting resolution of 320*480 which brings a great display to the device.


This is simply a low end device with only 512Mb RAM and 1.0GHz duo core RAM. This specs is superb for this portable phone and lets you use the device at a speed you will appreciate.


Back is 2MP and front is 0.3MP. If you so much desire a camera that is at least nice, this device camera is not what you need. It supports Skype and video call and the picture quality is excellent if this phone came out middle of last year and before.


The internet is excellent. A 3G connection with a WI-FI is what we see in it. You can connect your other gadgets and PCs with your favourite WI-FI hotspot. No 4G.


Tecno S3 ROM is 4GB and RAM is only 512MB and the expandable memory is up to 32GB.

      You may take your phone back to the Tecno shop where you bought for the certified technicians to look into it. Your Tecno 13months warranty covers the cost
