Tecno Pouvoir 2 was launched with a sole purpose – to provide enough power for its users to enjoy the features of the device without worrying about plugging it into a socket to charge in a long time. This is evident in the word Pouvoir present in its name, which is French for Power.
That said, the smartphone satisfies in other areas like the screen and software.
The Tecno Pouvoir 2 which succeeds Tecno L9 in its series packs a large 5,000mAh battery which can last for days on end before requiring a recharge. Coupled with a large screen and the latest software, the device is a solid mid-range offering from Tecno Mobile.

Design & Display :
The battery isn’t the only monstrous thing about this device. It features a large 6-inch display which is made with the IPS LCD display technology and has an HD+ (720 * 1,440) pixel resolution.
The resolution could have been bumped up a little more, but it’s manageable considering the other features of the device. And you have an 18:9 aspect ratio which puts the full length of the device comfortably in your hands.
The Pouvoir 2 comes with a metal unibody and its design is impressive; I can’t help but imagine how the designers managed to cram a 5,000mAh battery and other components into its 8.5mm-thick body. The device also sports a fingerprint sensor on the rear.
Memory & Performance :
A MediaTek processor which uses four cores (quad-core) and has a clock speed of 1.3GHz powers the device underneath, while a Mali-400 GPU handles graphics processing. Together with 2GB of RAM, the device runs fast in most situations.
It comes with 16GB of inbuilt storage to contain apps and multimedia files, and if that’s not enough, you can add up to 128GB of storage with an external microSD card.
A 13MP camera with Autofocus and a dual-tone LED flash handles main photography on the rear of the device, and its selfies are handled by an 8MP camera that also comes with LED flash on the front.
These cameras won’t win any awards for mobile photography, but they capture clear images all the same, especially in the abundance of light. Night shots aren’t very great, but they are made better by the inclusion of LED flash on both sides of the device.
The Tecno Pouvoir 2 also comes with Face ID which is fast becoming a phenomenon on mid-range and high-end smartphones. Using the front camera, you can quickly unlock the smartphone just by looking at the screen for a few seconds. Couple that with the fingerprint scanner on the rear, and you have doubled security on your device.
Battery & Connectivity :
The Tecno Pouvoir 2 packs the largest battery capacity on a Tecno smartphone so far, a 5,000mAh battery that can last up to four days at a go. Even when it’s used for heavy tasks like gaming or watching videos, the phone offers far more than 24 hours of usage on a single charge.
The Pouvoir 2 comes with 4G LTE connectivity, but we don’t know yet if it supports Glo 4G as its LTE bands haven’t been specified yet. It comes with a dual micro-SIM slot housed on the phone’s left side.
The Tecno Pouvoir 2 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo, the latest version of the Android operating system out of the box. It also comes layered with Tecno’s custom UI skin for its Android devices, Tecno HiOS which provides a different look from stock Android and offers some extra customizations to the user.
