Tecno is one of the leading mobile technology companies in the world. The giant tech company not only have their products right here in Africa, but also may be the leading in terms of the sales wings they have spread all over the continent. This brings us to our phone model today, the Tecno Y2. The phone model, which is not so new to the market is actually one of the cheapest Tecno phones in the tech market. The Tecno Y2 price in Ghana currently stands at about 217 GHc if ordered from Jumia. Stay put if you actually want to find out whether the specs of the phone justify the prices or otherwise.
Generally, the Tecno Y2 is a good catch for those who multitasking and large internal memory spaces do not excite. The phone sure has it lows, but the good points definitely override them.
- The gadget comes loaded with a slot for the MicroSD card that can be used to expand its internal memory up to 32 GB. Its internal memory also stands at 8 GB, a perfect for storing a whole load of music and pictures.
- In comparison to its peers and the pricing put on the gadget, the display put by it does not disappoint. The 4.0 IPS display put forth by the phone, of about 480 * 800 pixels is pretty colorful and apparently works well in integrating the user with the phone.
- Of the 8 GB present as the internal memory, only about 5.8 GB is usable to the product consumer. This might come as a disappointment especially to the tech newbies who envision storing excessive items on their phones.
- The phone boasts of a camera of only 2 MP. In defense of picture lovers, the phone might be as well said to give blurry images, when set against the current expected standards of the X generation cameras.
Let that not deter you just yet. Let’s build up the Tecno Y2 specs one at a time, and maybe, your already formed opinion might change.
Tecno Y2 specifications
Some of the key features the phone holds are like:
- 4.0 Inch screen
- A display of about 480 * 800 pixels
- 1.3 GHz Dual Core MTK chip
- 8 GB Internal Memory
- 512 MB RAM
- Android 4.4 Kit Kat

- 2800 mAH battery
The perfect word that can be used to describe it is sturdy. Yes, the Tecno Y2 is sturdy. We cant really complain of its sleekness owing to the price of Tecno Y2 in Ghana, but the phone which is all plastic at the back, has a design fit enough to slip through a tight denim pant. The volume buttons are found on the left hand side while the power button is found at the right side of the phone. The backside is smooth enough to guarantee a slip in wet or slippery conditions and at the same time pleasant to feel.
As we had already hinted above, the phone has a display of 480 * 800 pixels in a screen wide range of 4.0 inches. The display is rather very intriguing for such a small screen but kudos to the makers as the color ranges enhance the user interface.
3. Processor, storage and performance
The Tecno Y2 runs on a dual core 1.3 GHz Cortex A7 and a chipset Media Tek MT6572 chipset. The above qualities do as little to enhance on the speed of the phone, let alone try to improve on its multitasking capabilities. The capability of the Tecno Y2 to support some of the mobile games is low, and would lead to a resultant heat up if taken too far.
The storage of the phone, as one of the Tecno Y2 specifications, stands at 8 GB as the internal memory of the phone. The phone also comes with a slot for the micro SD card which enables the memory of the phone be expanded to a maximum 32 GB. The RAM however is rather small, at 512 MB, which is a main contributor to its sluggish nature.
Generally, the phone’s performance is all that a slack comparing variably to the price of Tecno Y2 in Ghana, but fact still remains that it cannot multitask as efficiently as the netizens society would dictate.
The Tecno Y2 comes with a good battery of 2350 mAH that supports a good talk time from a moderate to heavy use of the phone. It however does not support fast charging and uses cables.
5. Speaker and call quality
Astonishingly, the speaker and the quality of the call of this phone have managed very well to stand out, giving the user a good experience when calling or even listening to music. It has a mono type loudspeaker which is quite good with it.
1. Operating System and features
The Tecno phone runs on the operating system Android 4.4 Kit Kat which was among the best in its time of release. Though it does not give the option of upgrading the system to a higher version of the Android, the Kit Kat version still does well in running the phone. The User interface is not that much sophisticated, with basic Google Apps appearing on the Home Screen.
The phone also comes preloaded with some applications e.g. the document viewer and editor and some social apps such as Facebook, Whatsapp and YouTube among others.
Some other features include the fact that it uses the Accelerometer and Proximity sensors and uses HTML as its default browser.
I must really say that of all the Tecno phones, the Tecno Y2 has got really low camera specifications. The phone has a 2.0 MP back camera that has an LED flash accompanying it. For the front bit, the phone boasts of a 0.3 MP that produces pictures that are of 640 * 480 pixels.
The camera MP value can easily depict the kind of videos the phone would produce. Though the images and the videos are not as clear, the tiny tinge that is not blurry gives it an upper hand, comparing to its mates in the same price range.
After having looked at the Tecno Y2 specs and price in Ghana, one can easily judge the gadget. Users who have managed to use the gadget portray contrary views in regard to this. To others, the pocket friendly device is a save owing to its 3G network support. However, some users find it not so good mainly because of the processor.
After pondering on the specs, here is what I think. You are here because you are looking to acquire one of the Tecno phones Ghana. I know you have also looked at the Tecno phones prices in Ghana. If you have some level of gadget user friendliness and keen on the features, then a higher, more costly phone would do. If this is a first time experience for you, then buy Tecno Y2 as it would totally introduce you well to the world of gadgets.
