The new Tecno L9 is one of those budget Android smartphones designed to offer a fantastic battery life. It is a stripped down version of the recently launched Tecno L9 Plus and a more powerful successor to the Tecno L8. The new beast features an impressive design with an even more slimmer body than its predecessor, a smart fingerprint, also a huge battery capacity that can last up to 72 hours on full charge. This new addition to the Tecno L series range of smartphones still retains same display size as the L8; comes with a large HD IPS display, decent cameras, amongst other entry-to-midrange features.
This affordable phone has got everything you would expect in a smartphone – a large screen, excellent cameras, latest Android™ OS and a notable bigger battery similar to what Infinix offers on its Note series.

Let us quickly take a look at some of the Tecno L9 phone specs and features. Now let’s get to it.
Product History: Tecno introduced its Tecno L3 as the first “L series” smartphone in 2013 to cater for those that care a lot about battery life. Each device in this series is known for its long-lasting battery; usually above 24hours.
The Tecno L9 comes with an impressive 4000mAh. This is the largest battery capacity you can find on a budget Android smartphone on the smartphone market. The battery is excellent and is able to last 3 good days on full charge. That is same battery capacity that the old Infinix Hot Note has. A 72-hour battery life is arguably a great selling point of this device.
The company boasts that the battery power the device for 2 days on heavy usage.
In addition to the large battery capacity, the Tecno L9 supports QuickCharge (2A) with a ‘Boost’ charging feature that gives 40% in roughly 30 minutes from 0%. Five minutes of charging is also enough to take 1000 photos, a win, especially if you are into smartphone photography.
DESIGN & DISPLAY
The Tecno L9 parades same plastic body as its predecessor. Nonetheless, the smartphone has a metal appearance that gives it that premium look. It measures a dimension of 151 x 76.2 x 8.2 millimetres which are quite thinner than the previous L8.
The device sports an excellent designed that is distinctly different from other Tecno L series smartphones. Overall, I really like the design.
As mentioned earlier, the Tecno L9 has a same 5.5-inch IPS LCD touchscreen display with a body ratio that offers 1280 x 720 pixels resolution as expected and a 294PPI display density for more immersive wide-angle viewing. Its screen is not protected by any Glass, so you just have to be careful with the way you will handle the phone, or better still, you can get a protective glass along with it.
Regarding cameras, the Tecno L9 still packs an 8-megapixel rear-facing shooter and an improved selfie snapper now having 5-megapixel. The main camera features LED flash, autofocus and HDR to improve shot quality.
SOFTWARE & HARDWARE
Tecno L9 runs latest Android 7.1 (Nougat) on a MediaTek Quad-core Processor clocked at 1.3 GHz coupled with an embarrassing 1GB of RAM (definitely the weakest point of the smartphone). Considering a 2GB RAM on this device would have been more excellent, but this is a budget device after all.
The onboard storage capacity of 16 GB should suffice for handling thousands of photos, songs, videos and apps. The storage can also be expanded up to 32 GB via microSD card slot provided.
Fingerprint Security: A fingerprint scanner is provided on the rear of the device just under the rear camera for easy touch with the index finger. This works as extra privacy.
On the connectivity front, the Tecno L9 supports dual-SIM feature and comes the standard set of connectivity options including Wi-Fi 802.11ac, 3G, Bluetooth v4.2, NFC, 3.5mm headphone jack, and a USB Type-C port. The L9 does not support 4G LTE Network.
