Tecno Boom J8 Review (Based On Specs)

Boom J8 all about beats

From the specs sheet above , we can see that the Boom J8 is a BIG improvement from last year’s boom J7. The design has been polished , the user interface has been revamped and the RAM has been bumped up to 2GB. The Boom J8 has a 5.5 inch screen and 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. Tecno told us that the display has been optimised to consume less battery. In terms of design , the device comes with a plastic body , and a little bit of metal at the sides and the speakers are at the bottom.  The volume and power buttons are on the right hand side , while the charging port and speakers are both at the bottom. At a first glance , you would almost mistake the Boom J8 for an iPhone 6. They have a very similar design and the speakers are at the same spot ; at the bottom. But the iPhone 6 has a full metal build , while Tecno J8 is made of plastic and a little bit of metal. Have a look :

For performance , Tecno J8 uses a 64-bit Quad-core MediaTek processor , clocked at a speed of 1.3Ghz frequency. When put through a series of test , The Boom J8 performed exceedingly well. There was barely any noticeable lag , and the 2GB RAM helped a lot during multitasking (switching of apps). AnTuTu benchmark test revealed a processor score of  32143 and a RAM score of 4333.

Now lets talk about the user interface. The J8 will also be the first smartphone to use TECNO’s new and improved User Interface , HiOs.  The HiOS is designed with practicality firmly in mind; HiOS’ icons are sleek, intuitive and instantly distinguishable. HiOS has a user-interface that has a clean look and it isn’t cluttered in anyway. The lock screen has a minimalist design and the same goes for the home screen.

For those who love to customize, there are different themes to choose from and I am sure that new ones will constantly be added.

In addition to the goodies , TECNO is giving out free headsets to everyone that buys the boom j8!.

  • What i don’t understood is actually how you’re not really much more well-liked than you may be now. You’re so intelligent. You realize thus considerably relating to this subject, produced me personally consider it from so many varied angles. Its like men and women aren’t fascinated unless it is one thing to do with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs excellent. Always maintain it up!

  • well, I really enjoy the Boom J8, because it’s battery long-last,it’s not all that heavy and very portable,

  • It’s perfect, I just wished it’s OCTA CORE and I would go for it, if the prize range can be from 36 – 40 thousand naira

  • i like the fact that it is 2GB RAM. I was looking for a tecno with this feature and finally I’ve got it.

    .

  • @Mercy ,

    Camera quality is as good as that of Camon C8 , but Camon c8 still edges out when compared to J8 ; thanks to the dual flash light and inbuilt image enhancing software

  • Please how about picture quality is it as good as camon 8? I’m very prticular about pictures

  • Bonjour Monsieur. Je suis Ali. J’ai acheté le tecno boom j8 à Douala au Cameroun. Mais il n’y avait pas de casque écouteurs. Comment expliquez vous cela ?

  • @Gary

    Did you request for it?

    It would have been better if you bought the device from any of the online stores. They deliver both the phone & headset.

  • I buy Techno Boom J8 at Spar V.I. here in Lagos but no free headset the in-charge says no stock.I wonder because they still have stock for phone only.

  • I’ve been Looking for an Affordable & good 2G Ram phone with Great Specs, Think I’ve finally found it.

  • I have Read a Lot about this Phone, Particularly the HIOS and Hi Manager for better user experience. It’s a Must Use for all phone Lovers.

  • For those saying the Phone should be cheaper obviously don’t know what they’re saying. The Phone with this many features for 41k is already cheap enough.

  • This is a beautiful phone with great specs but I think it’s too pricey. Should have been in the range of 30k.

  • This is definitely going to sell so much! Tecno paid attention to details when making this.

  • Cool fone, super dope specs… Xpensive? I’II say in btwn, tecno shld put in mind dat dey now haf so many competitors unlike before, we now haf infinix and innjoo so I think they shld tone down d price a bit cuz if not dey will loose customers to their competitors after all its an open mkt system…..am DEFINETLY GETTING THE PHONE….☺☺☺☺

  • Tecno is trying to win me over with this boom J8 but i would have love a better display than this

  • I fell in love with this device, forgetting the fact that I’m not really a tecno fan, they are begining to bribe me to like them.
    Awesome headset though.

  • The TECNO J8 phone is really sleek and simple. As a music lover I fell in love with the Boom Maxx. Would definitely get one.

  • well with the above spec it will surely be a great phone. So how soon will it be available across the country? And lets know the actual price because i read from the previous article that the price ranges from 32 to 41 thousand and here now it ranges from 41 to 46 thousand.

  • i was trying to get benchmark results for the chip and it definitely is not MT6753, rather MT6735, the previous one is octa core with stronger graphics and 16 MP and FullHD screen res.
