The strongest budget phone with shining stylish look and powerhouse battery

The design of any smartphone is very important while buying it because apart from the user, other people’s eyes also often fall on stylish smartphones. If you think that all the phones in the budget segment come with boring design, then tech brand Tecno has proved you wrong. Recently, the brand has launched Tecno Pova 6 Pro 5G smartphone with Arc interface with LED light, 108MP camera and 6000mAh battery with 70W fast charging. We used this device for a week and are sharing the review with you.

Design and box contents

Pova 6 Pro 5G is available in two colors – Comet Green and Meteorite Grey, of which we used the Comet Green color 12GB + 256GB RAM variant for review. The unboxing experience of the device was good and all the features of the phone have been highlighted above. Apart from the smartphone unit, a 70W charging adapter, USB cable, SIM ejector tool and transparent hard case are also available inside the box. Getting a transparent case in the box along with a stylish phone ensures that you can easily show off its design to others.

The phone is extremely light and despite coming with a massive 6000mAh battery, its thickness is less than 8mm. Apart from this, there is no problem in holding it while using it with flat screen build. Speaker grill, IR blaster and microphone are provided at the top and apart from USB Type-C charging port, a 3.5mm headphone jack with speaker grill and primary microphone is provided at the bottom. The power button and volume rockers are found on the left side of the device.

Pova 6 Pro 5G comes with a plastic build with a glossy finish and the shine gives it a glass-like feel. However, fingerprints are easily visible all over the device so it felt better to use it with a case. On the top part of the back panel, the interface of Arc Light is given next to three camera rings and LED flash. Below also the branding and highlight features of the device are mentioned on the entire panel.

When seen from the rear, the smartphone gives the feel of a futuristic device and does not look like a budget segment phone. A lot of hard work has been done on its design and very special patterns have been made. This back panel shines even in slight light and its reflection can be seen in it. We have not seen such a design before in any device in the budget segment. This phone gives a strong feel while using and the LED flash is found at the top of the frame along with the punch hole camera cutout at the front.

Large display with high refresh rate

Pova 6 Pro 5G has a large 6.78 inch AMOLED display with very thin bezels all around and while using it, we got 120Hz refresh rate performance from this display. Colors appear bright and punchy on this display. This display is slightly raised from the frame of the phone and an under-display fingerprint scanner is found at its lowest part. On YouTube, we got the option of streaming in up to 2K quality and the media playback experience on the big screen was great.

Apps also use screen-space and one gets the benefit of larger screen-size even during multi-tasking. HiOS animations also look good on this display and it gives a premium feel. Although we did not get the benefit of high-refresh rate during gaming, in-game content with high-graphics also came out clearly on the display. The option to adjust the manual refresh rate seemed very useful. It is true that some apps do not use the top part of the punch-hole display.

Powerful camera with lots of features

Talking about camera performance, the back panel has a 108MP main sensor along with a 2MP depth sensor and a third AI lens. We got the same output in photography in good light as we get from other phones in the budget segment and good photos can be clicked from it. While doing photography in low-light, grains are visible in the photos clicked with the primary camera. Apart from this, when taking photos in portrait mode, sometimes the background blur and Bokeh effect is not clearly visible, but at zoom up to 3x, good image quality was obtained in outdoor lighting.

For low-light photography, Super Night Mode has been provided in Pova 6 Pro 5G and many such camera modes are supported. It has fun camera modes like AR Line and AR Shots, which may be useful for some users. Also, the camera has been provided with modes ranging from slow motion to pro mode and dedicated mode for scanning documents. Many features related to the camera improve the photography experience of the users. We also liked the photos clicked in 108MP mode.

Talking about the selfie camera, the 32MP sensor gave us good results. The good thing is that many camera modes are also available with the selfie camera and users can also use AI beauty filters. Apart from this, the option to change the color temperature and brightness level of the flash for selfie has been given, which is rarely seen in any other device in this segment.

In terms of video, the output was similar to other devices in the budget segment and we were able to record up to 2K videos. At the same time, recording can be done only at 1080p 30fps in ultra-steady mode. It has a dual video mode, through which the front and back cameras record video simultaneously. The previous settings also apply for selfie videos but in terms of video performance, we found the primary camera to be better than the selfie camera.

Make an old phone or tablet into a smart photo frame, everyone will say ‘wow’ as soon as they see it.

Software and performance

Tecno Pova 6 Pro 5G smartphone has Mediatek Dimensity 6080 gaming processor and we tested it while gaming for hours and with benchmark apps. No lag or frame drop was seen anywhere in games like BGMI and COD Mobile. There will be no problem even while using apps for daily needs and multiple apps can be used simultaneously. The top model has the advantage of 24GB RAM with Virtual RAM feature and with dual stereo speakers, you can enjoy hours of multimedia.

Talking about software experience, the device has HiOS 14 software skin based on the latest Android 14. There are a lot of features included, although some improvements could be made to the UI in terms of smoothness of animations and transitions. When you turn on the phone for the first time, it comes with many pre-installed apps, which you can delete. The company is going to provide security updates to Pova 6 Pro 5G for two years.

Amazing battery and fast charging

In one respect, Tecno Pova 6 Pro 5G surprised us and that was its battery life. It is the first phone in India to come with a 6000mAh battery with 70W fast charging. One thing we can say with certainty is that it is very difficult to find such a powerful battery in a budget phone. It provides more than 6 hours of screen-on time despite heavy gaming and hours of calling. This phone can be easily used for two days on a single charge.

Even if you are a heavy user, the phone will have to be charged every other day and you will be relieved from the hassle of daily charging. The situation was such that for battery testing we had to wait a long time for the phone to discharge and drain the battery through benchmark testing. Not only this, with a 70W charger it gets fully charged between 40 to 50 minutes after plugging in and then you can forget about the charger for the next two days.

Should you buy or not?

The sale of Techno’s latest phone has started from April 4, in which it can be purchased from online shopping platform Amazon at a discounted price of Rs 17,999. Not only this, Tecno S2 Bluetooth speaker is available free with the phone. Now if you were looking for a stylish phone at a budget price, then you can order it without thinking.

You will not have any complaints with this phone in terms of design, performance and battery. However, if your main focus is on the camera, then budget phones of OnePlus, Xiaomi and Poco are also available at this price-point. It is certain that you will not find a stylish design like Pova 6 Pro 5G and Arc interface with LED lights in them.
