On the right side of the smartphone, we have the volume rocker above the power key and on the left side is where you will find the SIM tray and a unique button to wake up a Virtual Google assistant. This triple-slot tray makes it more convenient for users who need to use two SIMs but want to expand the storage using a microSD card.

Camera

The Pouvoir 4 comes with an artificial intelligence(AI) quad multi-function camera that allows users the ability to produce top-of-the-line video quality allowing for a unique vlogging experience.Techno Pouvoir 4 - Camera

It is equipped with a 13MP AI quad camera, plus two 2MP cameras and an AI lens at the rear, and an 8MP dual flash camera at the front. The main camera packs a F1.8 big aperture and 8X digital zoom with a 77-degree shot angle that produces HD video recording function. The phone also comes with a low light video record mode that automatically brightens video shots in the dark.

Here are some sample photos using TECNO Pouvoir 4:

Performance

Inside the Pouvoir 4 is 2.0 GHz MediaTek Helio A22 quad-core processor paired with PowerVR GE6300 GPU, 3GB RAM, and 32GB expandable storage. The phone also comes with Android 10 with HiOS 6.1.

Built with gamers in mind, the Pouvoir 4 offers bespoke features such as a specific shooting intelligent scheduling of system resources to ensure a high-quality experience. The phone also uses a magic button that can be used as a fire key in arcade and shooting games as well as a Screen Off Gaming Mode that saves more than 50 percent of battery power.

For storage, the Pouvoir 4 is equipped with a 32GB of internal storage that is expandable up to 256GB through a dedicated microSD slot. Hence, we highly recommend that you get a microSD card for more storage especially if you take a lot of photos.

In terms of gaming, gamers will enjoy playing games over 10 hours, give or take, which is higher than most smartphones at this price range. I tried playing games like PUBG, ran at low settings by default, but it ran smoothly. I was also able to install and play Mobile Legends: Bang Bang, Call of Duty and NBA 2K20, not bad for a budget smartphone.

Battery

TECNO Mobile’s Pouvoir 4 can provide users with long hours of uninterrupted ultimate entertainment experience from gaming to vlogging to photography or watching videos to movies, thanks to its massive 6,000mAh battery capable of powering the phone for up to four days straight on a single charge, allowing users to enjoy multimedia content on a larger display longer.

Verdict

One of the key features we liked about the new Pouvoir 4 is it’s massive 6,000mAh battery capacity, capable of powering the phone for up to four days straight on a single charge. The 18W fast charging and dual stereo speakers are also a welcome addition especially at this price point.

So if you are looking for a stylish handset with a big screen, large storage, extra-long battery life, loud speakers, and decent cameras for work, homeschooling, multimedia consumption, and of course, a bit of play then TECNO Mobile’s Pouvoir 4 is definitely worth checking out.
