Tecno Phantom 6 Plus;Unboxing and First Impressions

by | Sep 26, 2016

The Tecno Phantom 6 and Tecno Phantom 6 Plus were officially launched yesterday night at the Burj Khalif in Dubai. With a campaign tagline of Beauty and the Beast, the Phantom 6 is Beauty because of its extra sleekness and amazing build while the Tecno Phantom 6 Plus is the Beast as it packs monstrous heavy duty power underneath.

The Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus are successors to the Phantom 5 which was Tecno’s initial foray into the market of premium devices. The Phantom 6 and Phantom 6 Plus are way advanced than their predecessor.

We are unboxing a unit of the Phantom 6 Plus to see what “the Beast” is packing inside its carton.

What’s in the box?

The box itself is a showy well packaged affair that has many compartments with a nylon wrapping holding everything in

Tearing off the nylon wrapping revealed a glossy black rectangular box that had another box inside

The “6′ logo formed a brilliant outlet by the side of the box to push the inner box out without plenty fuss

There was a seal at the opposite end from the “6”

After tearing off the seal…

TECNO-PHANTOM-6-19
…the second box was slid out easy from the “6”. Perfect views.

There was a slimmer box atop the larger box. Three boxes in all including the glove-like casing

Slimmer box with the “GIFTS” tag didn’t contain actual gifts. Just this palette…

…smart cover (pouch), and screen guard underneath.

Headphones and OTG adapters in the other corner to enable your device act as a host to other devices via the USB port.

That was all that was contained in the slim box.

The bigger box was easier to open

The device was nestled on top with yet another hidden layer.

Under the secret compartment there was a Type-C USB cord as earlier announced, two removable heads for the charger.

Here’s to making sure you are steadily plugged in!

The device itself had the usual nylon wrapping covering the screen…

…and on the back too!

The device itself in its 6-inch beauty is compatible and light.

And the pouch has compartments on the flap for 2 SIM cards and an ejector pin.

On the top there is a front facing camera, speaker for calls and soft flash for the camera.

Speaker grille, microphone and charging port are under the phone

The volume rockers and power button are on the right side of the phone,

while the SIM card slots are on the left

The camera, flash and fingerprint scanners are at the back

 

First Impressions

With all the power it is supposed to pack, the Tecno Phantom 6 Plus is really a Beast. At a massive 6 inches and with a battery that large, the Tecno Phantom 6 Plus is surprisingly lightweight.

The lightness makes it super easy to operate. Tecno Phantom 6 Plus will sell for between ₦92,000 — ₦95,000.

As we have seen the plenty components of the box, I will be bringing you a comprehensive review in a couple of days to see what “the Beast” is packing under the hood.
