The smartphone is designed in an up-to-date style. Its front side is covered by a beautiful screen with a format of 20.5: 9, surrounded by a not very thin frame. The back panel is where the company's designers have expressed their unique style. In this case, this is seen along the strip in the center of the spine. It is embossed and differs from the general background in color.

The camera unit is made in a classic version - a rectangle with a glossy finish with four lenses and a flash.

For the front panel we should note that it is covered by a whole piece of tempered glass, the brand of which is not mentioned. The back is made of slippery plastic, so we recommend that you supply the Tecno Pova 2 with a case of your choice.


The device has an IPS matrix with a diagonal of 6.9 inches and a resolution of 2460 x 1080 pixels. The pixel density is 389 per inch. The screen does not support a high refresh rate. The maximum brightness is 345 cd / m2, the contrast - 1080: 1. Under the scorching rays of the sun, you may have difficulty reading information on the screen. The budget of the model is recognized by the slight problems with the angles of view - the picture is slightly lost when viewed from the side.


Tecno Pova 2 is based on the MediaTek Helio G85 hardware platform, which was introduced in the spring of 2020. It consists of 8 computing cores - two ARM Cortex-A75 clocked at 2.0 GHz and six ARM Cortex-A55 clocked at 1 , 8 GHz. ARM Mali-G52 2EEMC2 is responsible for the graphics.

The platform provides acceptable performance with increased energy efficiency. Although the Tecno Pova 2 cannot be described as a gaming smartphone, it shows excellent results and will appeal to anyone who likes to play games on their device. The frame rate is stable. Basic applications start and respond without delay.


By choosing Tecno Pova 2, you get a quad camera. The main module is 48 MP with a lens with a brightness f / 1.9 and phase autofocus. There is no optical stabilization, but you have the ability to shoot with two different focal lengths and double zoom.

The other three cameras are respectively - 2-megapixel macro sensor and 2-megapixel sensors for measuring the depth of the frame. The front camera is single, 8-megapixel with an aperture of f / 2.0. It is realized in an unusual way, which is typical for Tecno Pova devices. You can use a beautifier and artificial bokeh effect, but only separately from each other.

With the rear camera of the Tecno Pova 2 you can record video with a resolution of 1440 pixels at 30 frames per second and 1080 pixels with both the front and rear camera. Its quality is worthy of a modern budget smartphone.

Autonomous work

From the very beginning we suggested that you can expect a lot from the Tecno Pova 2. It has received a battery with a capacity of 7000 mAh and this definitely affects your impression of the device. The manufacturer has also used an energy-saving system, which further improves autonomy. You can safely enjoy up to 2 days without reaching for the charger.

In standby mode, the battery charge is almost not lost. At extreme load you have 10-12 hours.


Tecno Pova 2 is a robust smartphone with a modern design and a satisfactorily large screen. You will like it not only because of its affordable price, but also because of the performance that exceeds that of many competitors in the market.

Among its main advantages is the beautiful screen on which you can use a variety of content. To it we must add smooth shapes and a body in a modern color - silver, blue or black. Tecno Pova 2 lies comfortably in the hand and can undoubtedly be defined as a multimedia smartphone.
