Tecno i5 & i5 Pro Specifications, Review and Highlights

Design & Display

The Tecno i5 and i5 Pro come with 5.5-inch displays with HD (1280 * 720) pixel resolutions. They have metal unibody designs, are 8.05mm thick and weigh just 160 grammes.

Both smartphones use capacitive navigation buttons and a physical home button into which an anti-oil fingerprint sensor is embedded.

The Tecno i5 comes with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage while the i5 Pro comes with a higher 3GB RAM capacity and 32GB of internal storage space. The smartphones feature microSD card slots through which the internal storage capacities can be further expanded.

Camera

A 13MP camera with a LED flash is present at the rear of the Tecno i5 smartphones for taking quality pictures, and selfie-lovers are well-taken care of with a 8MP camera (also with LED flash) upfront.

Battery & Connectivity
