The TECNO brand is not new to our market and has been supplying Russia with such normal smartphones of the middle price segment with good characteristics for quite a long time.

If you choose a gadget according to the “price-quality” criteria, then TECNO smartphones definitely deserve attention. It is not surprising that the manufacturing company is one of the ten largest smartphone manufacturers and makes smartphones with good features at affordable prices, which directly affects their popularity in various countries from India to Russia.

I got a new TECNO POVA 3 smartphone in my hands: a powerful 7000 mAh battery, a screen with an actual frequency of 90 Hz, smart stuffing and all this for 18,990 rubles at normal times, and now even less, 16,990 rubles. It seems that the best smartphone in the price range under 20 thousand has been found? Let’s figure it out.

Appearance

The body of the smartphone is made of plastic, the back panel is matte, fingerprints are not visible on it. In the center there is an additional decorative element in the form of a glossy strip, and in the blue version of TECNO POVA 3, this strip has a built-in backlight. The silver version of the smartphone is deprived of this luxury for unknown reasons.

This glossy strip protrudes slightly from the body, so that if you put your smartphone on the table, the cameras will not come into contact with the surface. But the strip itself perfectly collects fingerprints and small scratches, so it’s better to immediately hide the gadget in a transparent silicone case, since it is included in the kit.

In addition to the case, the TECNO POVA 3 box contains a 33W charger and a USB-C cable. In my test copy, there were also wired headphones, but they will not be included for the Russian market. But in the smartphone itself has a 3.5mm jackwhich in our time causes a nostalgic smile.

The front side of the device greets the user with a large FHD + diagonal screen 6.9 inches and a resolution of 2460×1080 pixels.

The screen matrix is ​​IPS, so that at an angle the image turns pale, but not critical, but the brightness parameter reaches 500 nits, and this is quite a comfortable level for displaying a picture under the bright rays of the sun.

The front camera at the top of the screen is almost invisible and has a resolution 8 MP. At the back there is a dual camera, where the basis is a 50-megapixel module with f / 1.6 aperture and one auxiliary “eye” with a resolution of 2 megapixels. Also under the cameras is an AI module.

TECNO POVA 3 dimensions are 173.1×78.5×9.4mm, weight – 230 grams. In the hand, the device lies comfortably, it does not seem heavy and easily fits into almost any pocket.

The case also has physical volume keys, a power button that has a built-in fingerprint scanner and several slots: one for two nano SIM cards and a separate slot for a micro-SD memory card with a capacity of up to 512 GB.

Also, TECNO POVA 3 boasts stereo speakers that produce loud sound without extraneous wheezing. You can hear it even from the inside pocket of the jacket, so you definitely won’t miss notifications and calls.

Filling and features of TECNO POVA 3

Inside the smartphone, an octa-core Mediatek Helio G88 processor is installed, which consists of two Cortex-A75 with a frequency of 2 GHz and six Cortex-A55 with a frequency of 1.8 GHz. A separate ARM Mali-G52 MC2 processor is responsible for the graphics.

TECNO POVA 3 comes to our market with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory. One of the main advantages of this gadget is a huge 7000 mAh battery by the standards of other smartphones in this price category. On a single charge, POVA 3 can easily work for two days, if you do not abuse resource-intensive games.

And if you like to run one or two rinks in PUBG or CoD mobile, the smartphone will please you with slow discharge: according to personal impressions, one rink in the royal battle eats up about 7% of the charge, which is a very good indicator.

The smartphone is generally focused on gamers: among several pre-installed applications there is a proprietary Panther Engine 2.0 engine. If you run the same PUBG through it, then the processor power is optimized for the game, allowing you to get a stable frame rate for playing with maximum comfort.

The included 33W charger charges the smartphone from zero to 100% in about 90 minutes. Half an hour of charging charges the gadget up to 45%.

The powerful battery even allows you to use TECNO POVA 3 as an external battery for other devices and accessories. You can easily charge your headphones or even another smartphone from your smartphone using a USB-C cable.

In natural daylight and without zoom, the photos are quite clear and detailed. As in all smartphones from the Middle Kingdom, all pictures are processed by default with the built-in “beautifier” – some people like it, and some people can disable this add-on.

If you use a zoom, even the weakest, two times, the quality of the pictures is already beginning to raise questions. Although you can still say that the smartphone takes good pictures for its money.


Smart blur in portrait mode does a good job, given that the photo was taken in motion and not staged at all.

But I don’t recommend taking pictures against the light on TECNO POVA 3: it’s clear that HDR tried to stretch the picture, but it still turned out dull:

The smartphone also shoots videos in a maximum resolution of 2K at 30 frames per second.

As for me, POVA 3 copes well with photography, the main thing is not to abuse the zoom and not expect a miracle from shooting at night.

Output. Really great device for the money.

TECNO POVA 3 is really worth the money considering what you get:

▪️ large clear screen
▪️ impressive battery
▪️ adaptation for resource-intensive games
▪️ fast charging
▪️ stereo sound

In addition, the smartphone is equipped with NFC, so you can pay using contactless payment via Mir Pay. Add Bluetooth 5.0, support for Wi-Fi 2.4 or 5 GHz, VoLTE and it turns out that POVA 3 is perfect for both teenagers who are fond of mobile gaming and adults who value long autonomy and a large screen so as not to strain their eyes.

I remind you that today TECNO POVA 3 costs 18,990 rubles (now 16 990 rubles) and you are unlikely to find a suitable alternative for the money, which would have the same characteristics. Therefore, I recommend taking a closer look at this smartphone as the main working gadget or mobile game console.
