TECNO W5 Lite Unboxing, Specs and Price

TECNO W5 Lite has been in the market for quite some months now but I am glad to tell you that it’s a nice addition to the W5 series and from the information available to us, there are two variants of the Tecno W5.

There is Tecno W5 and Tecno W5 Lite. The Tecno W5 Lite is not an LTE device as the name sounds, it is rather a watered-down version of the W5. Below is all that you should know about the Tecno W5 and Tecno W5 Lite.

Two variants for the Tecno W5

There is the base version; Tecno W5 Lite and the Tecno W5 itself. Tecno W5 comes with 4G internet connection and a fingerprint scanner which are the only noticeable differences between the two devices.

For those that haven’t got the chance to see the Tecno W5 Lite phone, I present to you the  TECNO W 5 lite unboxing and first impression.

The device is housed in a white box with gold inscriptions around. I must say that the box is much more revamped than what we are used to when it comes to packing from TECNO. It’s very light which means that the phone inside will be light too.

When you unwrap the box, you are immediately presented with the device inside. It bears so much resemblance with its predecessor; the W4.

In a bit to see other items inside the pack, I removed the phone and underneath, you will find the usual suspects which are

  • The wall adapter charger
  • The USB cable
  • The 3.5mm headphone
  • And a smart pouch

As it’s the tradition of TECNO Mobile, everything you need has been provided in the box. So there won’t need to buy earphone and pouch because those are things many phone makers don’t normally include in their package.

My First impression of the Tecno W5 Lite

TECNO W5 Lite is an upgrade to the Tecno W4 in terms of screen size, battery capacity and camera. It has a 5.5-inch IPS HD display, battery capacity is 3000mAh and the rear camera is 13MP while the front is 2MP with flash.

The design language of the Tecno W-series still remains the same and in fact, the Tecno W5 Lite looks exactly like the Tecno W4.

The power button, volume rockers, charging port and the 3.5mm audio jack are all placed in the same position as its predecessor. The device is very light in the hands and I like the fact that this comes with a better battery.
