Tecno Pouvoir is a phone knows for its battery prowess and not performance, but somehow Tecno decided to build this extreme version of the Pouvoir series. Its battery capacity is humongous, it has lots of RAM, great CPU and a respectable Helio P22 Soc.

Honourable Mentions

  • Infinix Hot 9: Is a perfect replica of Tecno spark 5 Pro, costing just a little more than its sibling from TH, it’s an alternative pick for those who prefer Infinix to Tecno but common we know they exactly the same phone. = ₦54,800
  • Oppo A5 2020: This was one of our most recommended phones for Q1 and it still is a prime phone if you can find it in the market. =₦56,500
  • Samsung M11 2020: Is a good pick for Samsung fans looking for something at this price point, although it seems to have half the internal memory of the other phones on this list. But if your keen on Samsung and you can live with 32GB internal memory, then go for the M11 = ₦56,000
