Tecno POVA (LD7) comes from the line of Pouvoir Series; the company's phone models that are popularly known for their stronger battery lives. Therefore, it's unsurprising that this phone is equipped with a much stronger 6000mAh battery. Besides, it should be recalled that it's the same 6000mAh battery that comes with each of the earlier Tecno Pouvoir 4 (LC7) and Pouvoir 4 Pro (LC8).

Unlike the earlier Pouvoir phones, however, the strength of the POVA doesn't lie in its battery capacity alone, in fact, Tecno POVA is more of a gaming phone. This is because the phone is powered by the Helio G80 CPU; a midrange yet powerful gaming chipset from the MediaTek. And to ensure smoother or lag-free gaming, Tecno POVA is also equipped with 6GB of RAM. This brings about a more pleasant gaming experience, especially, when you are playing your favorite high resolution and fast paced games.

Still, having a much stronger battery live, like the earlier Pouvoirs is more of a bonus for this gaming phone, because it helps you to stay online as long as you like without being conscious of battery status. Besides, Tecno POVA support 18W fast charging and it also comes with an 18W fast Charger.

Though this phone offers an higher storage space of 128GB and it's also running on the recent Tecno HiOS 7.0 on top of the Android 10 OS. Still, apart from its impressive processing power and stronger battery capacity, other features of the Tecno POVA remain as those of other midrange and entry-level smartphones in the market.
For instance, despite that Tecno POVA features a big 6.8-inch Drop-notch display, the screen still packed the usual 720p pixels. 

Both the front and the Quad back cameras of this phone are also equipped with lower megapixels lenses, in fact, the front and back camera setups of the Tecno POVA are exactly like those of the Tecno Pouvoir 4 (LC7). In other words, the phone has an 8MP front-facing camera and 13MP Quad-lens back camera. Therefore, the pictures taken with this phone's cameras are not that impressive.

POVA Appearance, Colour And Price:
Though Tecno POVA is on the big side, yet, thanks to its Drop-notch display and taller aspect ratio, the phone appears attractive, sleek and slightly tall. But, the chassis and back of this phone; which are made of plastics, look a little less brilliant (compared to most of other recent midrange smatphones from the Tecno), thereby causing the back of the phone to look slightly less attractive.


Meanwhile, the current price of the Tecno POVA is about 78,500 Naira (KSh 22,500), and it's available in three colour options of Speed Purple, Magic Blue and Dazzle Black. But out of the three colour options, Dazzle Black is my favorite, because Tecno POVA with this colour option has a red vertical stripe on its back, which make the overall appearance of the phone to look more appealing.

POVA Dimensions, Ports And Buttons:
For its dimensions, Tecno POVA measures 171.23x77.6x9.4mm. Which implies that apart from its big size, the phone is slightly on the thick side too. However, the weight of the Tecno POVA is undisclosed.

The arrangement of ports and buttons, on Tecno POVA, is similar to those on the Tecno Pouvoir 4. In other words, you have the Volume rockers and Power button on the right edge of phone, while the 3-in-1 SIM tray and slot are located on the left edge, close to the top. Right below the SIM slot is an orange coloured Google Assistant Button.

And as expected, there is nothing on the top edge of the phone. Also, because the speaker of the POVA is not placed on its bottom edge, therefore, you only have microphone, microUSB port and 3.5mm audio Jack on its bottom edge.

POVA Has Front Firing Speaker Instead Of The Usual Bottom Firing Speaker:
Unlike most of other phones in this range, POVA doesn't have bottom firing speaker(s), instead this phone comes with a front firing speaker, and it is embedded on the top edge of the phone's display. And located on both sides of the speaker is the phone's dual screen flash. And as usual, this phone doesn't have a Notification LED, but there is a Charging Indicator LED; which also located on the top edge of the POVA's screen.

Tecno POVA Display:
The 6.8-inch Dot-in display of the POVA features an aspect ratio of 20.5:9. And it's the aspect ratio that makes the phone to look slightly tall and sleek, despite its big size. Still, as usual, the 6.8-inch screen of the phone features an IPS-LCD panel and also has an HD+ resolution of 1640x720, with a pixel density of 264ppi.

Tecno POVA Cameras:
While the 8MP (f/2.0) front-facing camera of the POVA is placed inside its display hole-punch, the phone's Quad-lens back camera is placed inside its rectangular shaped back camera bump. And the four back cameras are arranged, in an orderly manner, on the top part of the back camera module.

These four back cameras are made up of a 13MP (f/1.8) Primary lens (for taken Portrait shorts), a 2MP Depth Sensing lens (for taken pictures with Bokeh effects or blurred background), a 2MP Macro lens (for taking detailed pictures of close-up objects) and a QVGA lens (for taking a sharp and bright low-light pictures). And right below the four sensors is the back camera Quad-LED flash.

Meanwhile both the front and back cameras of the Tecno POVA are capable of shooting 720p (HD), 1080p (Full-HD) and 2K videos at 30fps (frame per second). And the back cameras are also capable of recording 720p Slo-Mo (slow-motion) video at 240fps.

Processing Power, Storage, And OS:
Helio G80 or MediaTek MT6760; which powered this phone, is a 12nm Octa-core (2x Cortex-A75 and 6x Cortex-A55) chipset. And it has a maximum clock speed of 2.0GHz. And for an optimum gaming experience, this chipset is fitted with the Mali-G52 MC2 GPU; which has a maximum gpu clock speeds of 950MHz.

And as i said earlier, this phone comes with 6GB of RAM; and the higher RAM is paired with 128GB inbuilt storage which provides enough space for your game folders and numerous videos files. Yet the inbuilt storage can still be expanded, via MicroSD card, up to 512GB. Meanwhile, Tecno POVA is running on the Android 10 O.S. (Operating System) alongside the latest Tecno's HiOS 7.0 custom UI (User Interface).

Big Battery With Quick Charging:
As i also said earlier, and being a Tecno Pouvoir's phone, POVA is equipped with a huge 6000mAh battery; which, normally, would've taken you longer hours to charge fully. But thanks to the phone's support for 18W quick charging and its 18W quick charger, you should expect Tecno POVA to be full charged in less than three hours.
