Tecno’s Phantom V Flip 5G is its official entry in the flip phone race in the market. But what’s surprising about the Phantom V Flip 5G is its price, it is only P29,999! This gives Tecno a competitive edge as flip phones in the market currently cost an arm, a leg and probably a portion of your liver.
But kidding aside, despite its affordable price tag, the Phantom V Flip 5G delivers an impressive performance. It runs on HiOS 13 on top of the Android 13 operating system and a Dimensity 8050 processor. A 4,000 mAh battery powers the Phantom V Flip 5G with a 45 Watts Supercharger that fuels up the power of the flip phone fast.
When folded, the Tecno Phantom V Flip 5G is only 14.95 mm thick. Its outer screen is housed in a circular form that occupies most of the upper half of the flip phone. The screen is 1.32 inches which is also circular. It is a far cry from its competitors that usually build their flip phone’s outer screen in square or rectangular shape. The outer screen can display numerous apps and notifications. Swiping left or right shows the apps available and music control. Swiping down shows the settings and swiping up reveals your notifications. The outer screen can also be personalised and has an always on display option.
On the other hand, its main screen measures 6.9 inches with up to 120 Hz refresh rate. The screen’s brightness can reach up to 1,000 nits. The crease in the main screen is not as visible as you would expect. You will only notice the crease at some angle but not bothersome at all. You will also feel the crease slightly when you run your fingers in the middle of the screen.
Around the outer screen are the cameras and flash. Its main camera consists of a 64-megapixel main camera and a secondary 13-megapixel Ultra-wide angle camera. This dual-lens setup is good enough for everyday snapshots of people, places and food. The colours are vibrant and life-like. The AI feature of the camera also automatically scans the scene and adjusts the settings automatically. The selfie camera on the other hand sports a 32-megapixel shooter that captures clear selfies.
In summary, the Tecno Phantom V Flip 5G is a very attractive option for users who are looking for affordable, trendy and innovative Foldable Smartphones. The phone comes with an abundance of features that make it the perfect choice for users who are looking to have a device which is both elegant and useful.
