Which of the two smartphones will you purchase? Nevertheless, if you can afford the TECNO Pouvoir 2, go for it instead; it grants you more.

With better security features such as the Face Unlock and fingerprint sensor, better multi-tasking management with larger RAM, better display and not forgetting larger expandability of memory, the Tecno Pouvoir 2 is the clear winner. If you can, by all means, upgrade.

If you think otherwise, I’d, by all means, want to hear from you in the comments below.


  1. nice review , i personally think this pouvoir 2 is a worthy upgrade of the pouvoir 1 and the pouvoir 2 pro is the bomb, that face ID will really come in handy for security purposes and its got a better RAM on it too.
