In this TECNO POP 1 VS POP 1 Pro comparison review, you get to know the major differences between these two devices. The TECNO POP 1 and POP 1 Pro are TECNO’s latest budget devices. The devices are also known as TECNO F3 and F3 Pro, coming with much-improved specs than the F1 and F2 smartphones. Back to the topic here, the TECNO POP 1 and POP 1 Pro will be going head to head in this specs comparison.
We all know the Pro version will definitely triumph, but what are the major differences? Well, all your questions are about to be answered in a minute. In this specs comparison, you’ll get to know all the major differences. Let’s get to know if the price pump on the Pro version was worth it as well.
TECNO POP 1 VS POP 1 PRO – DESIGN
The design on both smartphones is pretty simple like most budget phones from the company. They both have well crafted Plastic removable back cover with a simple design. With just a single antenna line at the top, the rear camera and LED flash are seen on top as well.
Most Pro versions are known for their bigger overall body, but that’s not the case here. They are both identical in terms of design, you can’t even tear them apart just by looking at their body. Even the loudspeaker, TECNO logo and other features are still in their usual position.
TECNO POP 1 VS POP 1 PRO – DISPLAY
These big screen beauties are perfect for those on a budget and want the trending big screens. The POP 1 is equipped with a 5.5-inch FWVGA IPS capacitive touchscreen with a low resolution of 960 x 480 pixels. The bottom bezel houses three navigation buttons, while the top houses the usual features.
The POP 1 Pro has the same screen features as the POP 1, no difference here. It has the same 5.5-inch FWVGA IPS capacitive touchscreen and 960 x 480 pixels in resolution. Meaning there is no improvement in terms of design and display between TECNO POP 1 and POP 1 Pro.
TECNO POP 1 VS POP 1 PRO – CAMERA
In terms of photography, both devices won’t let you down but don’t expect the kind of pictures you will get from the Camon Series. The POP 1 is equipped with a 5MP rear camera with dual-LED flash which is incomparable to the 13MP rear camera with dual-LED flash on the POP 1 Pro. If photography is your thing and you need a good low-end camera smartphone, then the POP 1 Pro does it better.
However, when it comes to selfies there is no difference here. They are both equipped with the same 5MP selfie shooter for all your selfie needs. Both selfie snapper comes with a LED flash as well for night photography and video calls. Although you have to keep in mind it’s a budget smartphone, so don’t expect magic with the cameras.
TECNO POP 1 VS POP 1 PRO – HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE
They are both powered by a MediaTek chip with Quad-core processor that clocks at 1.3GHz. So if you think the Pro version might execute tasks faster then you need to think again. To make matters worse, they both have the same 1GB RAM space for just light multitasking.
The difference is clear in terms of storage, the POP 1 has just 8GB storage space to accommodate all files. While the POP 1 Pro comes loaded with a bigger 16GB storage space. So, if you need more storage space, you know the one to choose. Nonetheless, they are both upgradeable up to 32GB using a memory card and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat operating system.
TECNO POP 1 VS POP 1 PRO – BATTERY
Another similar feature here again, they are both powered by a 2400mAh Li-Ion battery with no fast charging feature whatsoever. I don’t think you need the fast charging feature to charge a 2400mAh battery any way.
TECNO POP 1 VS POP 1 PRO – PRICE
The POP 1 Pro is more expensive obviously, thanks to the.bigger 16GB storage space and crystal clear 13MP rear shooter. It retails between N30,000 to N35,000 on shopping stores, while the POP 1 retails between N25,000 to N30,000.
From the specs comparison, it’s obvious there’s no major difference in terms of appearance, battery and display. But if you are a photography lover, then you need a bigger storage space as well. The POP 1 Pro will give you a 13MP shooter and 16GB of storage.
