My take: If you own a Tecno Phantom A2 there is no point going for Phantom A3 as their features are almost thesame. What’s your take on this?

    Please help me compare this phone TECNO Phantom A3 , with Blackberry Z30.. the BB is a lot costlier but I like to know if TECNO will satisfy my needs.. e.g picture quality (some pple have said the 8MP in BB Z30 is far far better than the 13MP in TECNO)..
    TECNO a3 doesn’t have JAVA, is JAVA very important on a smartphone.. I’d await your kind response . thank you

    • Both phones are 2 different phones entirely , Z30 is a premium and sophisticated phone, as regards camera, most times the technology behind d camera determines d quality, this can be seen in HTC One (4MP)….also JAVA shouldn’t be an issue since we have lots of Android apps that can replace most of our beloved java apps/games in the store.

      Right now, u can install android apps/games on Blackberry 10 devices. I think Thats another good news.

      So, Choosing between the 2 phones depends on your budget but I’l prefer a Z30 any day :D

      BTW: although there are emulators that let’s u run jar on android but Running jar apps on android isn’t worth d stress. The difference in app quality and capability is just too wide.

  2. I want to know which one i shd go for btw techno A3 and n9

    • hello shola,

      When it comes to overall specification, Tecno A3 beats Tecno N9. But in terms of physical appearance Tecno A3 has 6″ screen while Tecno n9 has 8″, this makes Tecno N9 a tablet (i prefer something small though). The summary of it all, I’ll prefer a Tecno A3 anyday.

      BTW Tecno N9 has a higher battery capacity 4,500mAh
