The Tecno N3 is a new Android mobile that came out around November 2012. If you are looking to change your mobile to Android, or even start your first of many to come, then the brand new Tecno N3 running Android Gingerbread is a good way to head. The Tecno N3 dubbed ‘ the smarter smart phone’ can do a bit of everything and was primarily introduced to target the younger generation. Part of that reason was that of its great gaming, but we’ll touch on that a bit later.
When you first purchase the Tecno N3, you will have all of the basics pre-installed on the device. Apps such as Gmail, Search, Messenger, Talk, Google Plus and YouTube which is also owned by Google come standard and already set on your Tecno N3 devices display.
There are a few reasons why this phone is great to own, especially for the younger crowd. It has been praised for its surprisingly good functionality, especially for the price it comes in at. On top of that, it comes unlocked when you buy it which has its obvious benefits. These two things are great for the younger generation that knows all about unlocking and are looking for as much bang for their buck as possible.
We are still seeing several budget Android smartphones opting to stick with the Gingerbread operating system. Thanks to the great OS it was, it has allowed devices to continue to use it several years later while coming in cheaper than supplying the newer operating systems would have been. That said, I’m a big fan of Gingerbread, especially the 2.3.5 which is what the Tecno N3 comes with. I have been using it for a while now and didn’t feel the need to upgrade it regardless of the cost just yet.
The Tecno N3 looks a bit like the Microsoft Kin One and Kin Two that were released a few years back but discontinued. In fact, it seems to look nearly identical to the Kin Two if the Kin Two didn’t have the extra keyboard part that flips out. Point being if you are a fan of this type of style and design then you will be a big fan of the Tecno N3. Some say it looks classy and some say it looks cheap. There is no right or wrong answer. However, there’s no denying the cheaper plastic material it is made out of. The Tecno N3 has also had a similar appearance to that of its closest rivals such as the Samsung Galaxy Pocket. If you are looking for a device of similar caliber and that holds a similar price tag, then the Samsung Galaxy Pocket is the other device you should take a look at before deciding what you want to purchase.
When you look into it, you can see where the Tecno N3 has done its cost cutting, but that isn’t to say it’s not a great device for the price. And that’s exactly how the owner reviews and comments left about the device seem to go. The Tecno N3 is widely regarded as an excellent device for the price you pay.
Because it’s targeted at the younger generation, you may be interested to know if it is WhatsApp compatible. Well, I can say the answer to that question is a big yes. Because it does use the Gingerbread 2.3.5, there is no problem downloading WhatsApp for the Tecno N3 at all. The Tecno N3 also comes with Spinlet, a neat App that is designed to save battery life.
Speaking of battery life, the Tecno N3 is very impressive in that category. Even if you are using WiFi for a few hours each day, the battery life should be able to see out your entire day from getting up time to bed time.
