Checkout Tecno L9plus Full Review. The L9plus is another mid-ranger from the stables of Tecno Mobile. With a better looking all metal design, upgraded specs, and the latest software, the L9plus does a fantastic job of massively improving on its predecessor and providingcompetition to the infinix note series.

The L9plus has a massive 5000mAh and this by no suprise the USP of the phone. The L9plus offers fast charging is touted as being able to provide power for 3days of usage. The phone has been my daily driver for almost a week and I’m not making this up when I say I’ve only charged it just 3 times, and yes I’m a heavy user. Also, with the included OTG cable the L9PLUS can perform the honorable job of charging other smartphones.
The L9plus has a 6inch, 720p HD, LCD display. A FHD would have been nice but that would’ve impacted on the price. One can’t really tell the difference between both from mere looking at it so anything to make the phone super affordable without compromising hugely on hardware is welcomed.
PERFORMANCE AND STORAGE
It’s fairly predictable that the L9plus is powered by a mediaTek chip. The variant installed is the MT 6580 clocked at 1.3GHZ and is paired with a Mali T400 GPU. The phone comes with a 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM which is expandable up to 32GB via micro SD. Based on the benchmark results and of course real life performance, the L9plus performs quite respectably. So far I’ve not experienced any sort a of lag, performance has been zippy.
The speaker grill and USB port can be found at the bottom. The top houses only the 3.5mm head phone jack. The sound coming from the speaker is quite loud and enough to fill a small room.
The L9plus is equipped with a 16mp rear camera and an 5mp front facing camera. I am by no means a photographer but the L9plus takes really decent photos. The images in well-lit environment turned out bright and clear. The 5mp selfie camera isn’t too shabby and I am pretty confident that your selfie game is covered.
The camera interface is fairly straightforward and locating the settings won’t be a problem. It operated smoothly with no flag whatsoever.
As you’d expect the L9plus comes with Android 7.0 Nougat with Tecno’s HIOS skin on top. It also has almost zero bloatware.
This version of HIOS looks very much like stock Android. Everything from the notification icons to all the stock apps has stock Android written all over it, and it’s not a bad thing.
The Good: Design, Display, Battery
The Bad: No 4G LTE, Capacitive buttons aren’t back lit.
The L9plus won’t satisfy everybody, but if you are in the market for a smartphone with a good design, massive battery, large and impressive display, good performance, a decent camera that won’t make you look out of place on social media, then the Tecno L9plus should be your next smartphone.
What a nice phone…
