Let me also say that the launch of the Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus have made a lot of smartphone enthusiasts happy particularly those who have been battling with unstable Power Supply in Nigeria.
I am also excited with this launch. In fact, I am already planning to send a cup of coffee ☕ to Tecno Mobile. Should I?☺️

If you ask me to describe the design of the Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus with a single word, I will use the word “beautiful”. This device is good looking, you might want to mistake it for the Phantom 9.

While the top remains empty, the bottom got the remaining slot. Right there you will find the speaker grill, micro USB port, mic and 3.5mm headphone jack.
The rear received a trending outlook. Just like almost every other new smartphone that was released this year, the Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus didn’t step out of it.
At the back of this Power King, you will see the vertically placed Triple AI cameras plus flash, fingerprint scanner with some Tecno and Pouvoir brand inscription.
Now that Tecno have decided to start using OLED screens on her budget smartphones, I can gladly say we now have more views to enjoy in Nigeria.

Lets talk about the camera of the Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus. Right in front is a 13MP selfie camera with dual front-facing flashlight that is invisible. It only appears when you need it.

The Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus have other essential camera features like Bokeh effect, 120° wide-angle and macro photography assist with better views on photo scenes.
The battery life of the Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus is considered the biggest upgrade so far. This tech comes with a 6000mAh super battery that can stay activate for 5 good days.
This is no joke at all, Tecno really planned for this. Could you believe the Pouvoir 3 Plus did more than 12 hours screen on time and the battery did not die.
That’s number one, there is also another thing I need to tell you about this phone.
You know we have this normal tradition of seeing our smartphone shut down when the battery enters 0% right? Well, that didn’t happen with the Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus.
Could you believe this phone didn’t shut down immediately even at 0%. I must say I am highly impress.
The Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus can guarantee up to 2100 minutes of calling, 12000 minutes of music playing, 1020 minutes of gaming and 1740 minutes of video playback.
On top of that, the Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus is of light weight even with her 6000mAh battery capacity. It weighs only 196gram which is amazing especially when you compare it with smartphones with smaller battery size.
Tecno was able to prove to us that the battery life on her Pouvoir 3 Plus is King. So no body should tell me he or she could not do a thing due to low battery. Dude! go and buy this smartphone in Nigeria
Before I proceed to next section, I also must let you know that it took the Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus almost 4 hours to charge from 0 – 100%. I was expecting to see it happen, I just wish it has fast charging.🤨
You can however escape this hurdle by simply charging the Tecno Pouvoir 3 Plus over night and use it through out the day in Nigeria. That’s the way to go.
