Tecno Pouvoir 1 VS Tecno Pouvoir 2: Tecno smartphones with 5000 mAh battery. It’s really hard to keep track of Tecno Mobile naming.

Tecno has released the first two smartphones under the series; Pouvoir 1 and Pouvoir 2. Just like the F-series, the Tecno Pouvoir 1 and Pouvoir 2 are budgeted smartphones. The Tecno Pouvoir 1 was released in April 2018. And in May 2018 Tecno released the Pouvoir 2.

These two smartphones have broken Tecno Mobile record as the smartphone with the biggest battery capacity. They’re both powered by a huge 5000 mAh battery capacity. In this article, we will be comparing the Tecno Pouvoir 1 and Tecno Pouvoir 2. We already know they have the same battery capacity, so let’s find out other similarities and differences between them.

Tecno Pouvoir 1 VS Tecno Pouvoir 2 – The Display

The first major difference in the display of the Tecno Pouvoir 1 and Pouvoir 2 is the bezels. The Tecno Pouvoir 1 features large bezels at the top and bottom, with the three navigation buttons on the bottom bezel. The three navigation buttons of the Tecno Pouvoir is on-screen as it features a bezel-less display.

The Tecno Pouvoir 1 sports an IPS LCD 5.5-inch touchscreen. The display features a 720 x 1280 pixels resolution with 267 PPI density. While the Tecno Pouvoir 2 sports an IPS LCD 6.0-inch touchscreen. The display ditches out an 18:9 aspect ratio, 720 x 1440 pixels resolution with 269 PPI density. Aside from the bezel-less display, there isn’t much difference between them.

Tecno Pouvoir 1 VS Tecno Pouvoir 2 – The Camera

The Tecno Pouvoir 2 supports Face ID technology, while the Pouvoir 1 doesn’t. At the rear camera of the Pouvoir 2 is a 13MP sensor while at the front is an 8MP sensor. Both cameras of the Tecno Pouvoir 2 features LED flash. The Tecno Pouvoir 1’s rear camera features an 8MP sensor and a 5MP sensor at the front camera for selfies. Just like the Pouvoir 2, both cameras of the Pouvoir 1 also supports LED flash.

Tecno Pouvoir 1 VS Tecno Pouvoir 2 – Hardware and Software

Under the hood of the Tecno Pouvoir 1 is MediaTek MT6580 chipset with 4-cores processor clocking at a speed of 1.3GHz. And the ARM Mali-400 graphics processing unit handles the graphics of the Pouvoir 1. The Tecno Pouvoir 2 is powered by a better chipset; MediaTek MT6737 that carries 4-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz. The graphics of the Pouvoir 2 is powered by an ARM Mali-T720 MP2 graphics processing unit.

The Tecno Pouvoir 1 runs on HiOS skin on top of Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. While the Pouvoir 2 runs on HiOS skin on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. The Pouvoir 1 comes with just a 1GB memory, which is really poor for a smartphone that does not run on Android Go edition. You get a 2GB memory on the Tecno Pouvoir 2. They both have a 16GB internal storage space.

Tecno Pouvoir 1 VS Tecno Pouvoir 2 – The Battery

Both the Tecno Pouvoir 1 and Pouvoir 2 packs a non-removable Li-lon 5000 mAh battery. But the bad news is that they don’t support fast battery charging and will definitely take over 3 hours to full charge.

Tecno Pouvoir 1 VS Tecno Pouvoir 2 – The Price

The Tecno Pouvoir 1 is sold for around $99 (N34,650). While the Tecno Pouvoir 2 is sold for about $129 (N45,000). Not really impressed with either phone, but I would pick the Tecno Pouvoir 2 here. The Pouvoir 2 has added security advantage thanks to its fingerprint sensor and Face ID. And it also features bigger memory size and camera quality than the Pouvoir 1.
