Tecno W5 LITE Unboxing, Specifications And Review

The Tecno W5 Lite is one of  Tecno's new Android Smartphones released in Q4 of 2016.
It's a mid-range device coming with a poly-carbonate plastic body and metal frame . The Tecno W5 Lite smartphone measures 153.2 x 76.4 x 7.8mm. It is a mid-range smartphone featuring a 5.5 inch HD display with 720 x 1280 pixels screen resolution. its comes in the colors of black and white and Gold, It also bears so much resemblance with its predecessor; the Tecno W4 .

If you're planning to purchase this device or just want to know more about this smartphone keep reading. 


The W4 comes in a very slim portable pack like most devices in Tecno's W series.

Once you get to open the pack,  you get to see a device sporting a beautiful 5.5 inch display.

Like they say,  all that glitters is not gold. Let's have a look at the device and determine if it's really gold.

The device comes with the following accessories :
1 headset
1 power adapter + USB cable
1 phone pack.

There’s also a warranty card .


Powering the W5 Lite  Is a 3000maH battery. The device runs on Android Marshmallow so the battery should last longer than devices with the same battery capacity that have lower android versions .

Network / SIM Card Slots

The W5 Lite does not support 4G, it only supports  WCDMA/3G/2G.  It supports dual sim and each sim should be a micro sim card.


The rear camera packs a 13 megapixel shooter which is quite an improvement to the W4 that has just 8 megapixels.

Coming to the front camera, this is where Tecno killed this phone. The front camera packs a MASSIVE 2 MEGAPIXEL shooter. Your eyes are not deceiving you. It's not a mistake,  Tecno decided to add a 2 megapixel shooter to this phone plus a LED flash.

If you love taking Selfies, I'm sorry you won't like this device. I wonder what a front flash is doing beside a 2 megapixel camera.

Selfie-Lovers Right Now
Tecno right now

Tecno gave us eguisi soup with bone as meat. (Hehehe)

Camera Test

The front camera is very poor so i won't bother adding the images i took with it.

I compared the W5 Lite's  13mp shooter against the W4's 8mp.

The W5 Lite totally knocks out the Tecno W4

Awww.. That's gotta hurt
