When you are looking for a smartphone below 10000 shillings, the battery should be one of your top considerations. This is because these phones are usually weak in other areas, and will not make sense to buy a phone with a weak battery too. The Tecno Pop 2 Plus is one of the best devices you can buy if you are on a budget. This smartphone is cheap but comes with a massive 5000mAh battery. When you buy it, you completely eliminate the stress of carrying a charger around. According to Tecno, you can get up to 48 hours on a single charge.

Tecno Pop 2 Plus Design & display
Pop 2 Plus is not the most beautiful Tecno phone in Kenya. It is not a bad looking device either. It has the look that you should expect from a phone in its price range. It has some bezels and the body is plastic. This device has a single camera at the back and a single front-facing camera. Next to the rear camera is a single LED flash. The Pop 2 Plus measures 161.7 x 78.9 x 9.55 mm and weighs 193 grams.
This device comes with a 6.0 inches display utilizing IPS LCD technology with a resolution of 480 pixels by 960 pixels and has pixels density of 194PPI. This smartphone has an aspect ratio of 18:9 and 71.3 screen-to-body ratio.
Again, this is not the best camera phone from Tecno. If you are keen about buying a phone with great cameras on a budget, you should check the likes of Tecno Camon 12 and Camon 12 Air.
