The device was tagged ‘Do business, stay mobile’ because it was launched with the intention of  carrying the mission of offering an improved and efficient business life.  Just like how Tecno Camon CX was released with the aim of satisfying the urge of selfie lover is the same way tecno phonepad 3 phablet was launched with the intention of facilitating  business communications and productivity for its users on-the-go.

Disadvantages of TECNO PhonePad 3 Phablet

  • Body and Design

The number one cons of tecno phonepad 3 phablet is the body and design. The device is a 7-inch phablet with a large screen and very flat surface. These is enough to make it prone to falling off while handling.

  • Non-Removable Battery

Having a non-removable battery is another headache and limitation of tecno phonepad III to some people who have had some bad experience with it. Like inability to remove the battery anytime it is neccessary.

  • Low Front Camera

Personally, I commend the rear camera but I think the front camera(5MP) is kind of low. And it has no special feature attached to it.
