Tecno P9 Phantom Pad mini Features
  • For those that greatly value portability, Phantom Pad mini makes for a more compact companion than the original 8-inch Pad N9 and even throws in some attractive features that make it act more like a super-sized phone than a tablet
  • 7.0-inch IPS LCD display showing improved color contrasts and wider viewing angles than TFT LCD used on most low-cost smartphones (color reproduction is however stuck at a modest 256-thousand as compared to a norm of 16-million colors offering noticeably more vibrant graphics)
  • Despite this outdated capacity, resolution is actually crispier at 216 ppi when compared to HP Slate 7 or Lenovo A3000 both with 170 ppi, this makes smaller text sharper so you don’t need to always zoom in
  • Dual SIM connectivity which lacked on the original Phantom Pad is present here and with dual stand-by, both lines remain active for calls or texts even when the other is busy
  • 5 MP primary camera with digital zoom, white balance, video recording in high definition and LED flash for better low light performance
  • 2 MP front-facing camera which on tablets is handy for a quick snap considering the back camera is almost impractical due to device size
  • Android Jelly Bean operating system with Google Now, Hangouts and BBM support
  • Preinstalled Google and social apps include; Google Play, Maps, Search, Gmail, Calendar, YouTube, Yahoo!, Opera Mini and Facebook (essentially all other popular apps supported via download through Google Play)
  • Stereo FM radio and multi-format video and audio players
  • Stereo loudspeakers ensures for louder, more distinctive music or dialogue
  • Tecno flash share enables you to send or receive files of any size across wirelessly connected devices in a faster way than Bluetooth
  • Device available in white or black colors with 13 months manufacturer warranty
