  1. Yves says:

    La gamme techno pouvoir surtout pour des personnes aimant un téléphone qui ne nécessite pas constamment d'etre entrain de charger le téléphone q tout moment est bonne mais le problème est un peu au niveau de son stockage car au niveau du processeur un téléphone de cette gamme doit avoir un processeur 8 coeurs cadence à 1.3 ou 1.5ghz et au niveau du stockage la mémoire doit être élargi à 32gb contrairement à son prédécesseur le pouvoir 2 pro que l'on disait 16gb mais au fond ce n'est que 10gb et en plus le pouvoir 3 doit venir en deux version vie son prédécesseur en simple 32gb de rom 3 Gb ram et 1.3ghz*8 et la deuxième version la pro 32/64gb rom et 4gb RAM processeur 1.5/2ghz ….toute fois sans n'exclut en rien son autonomie qui est déjà excellente et vraiment continuer comme ça techno…. Merci d'avance je vous aime

    The two difference I can see from 3 and 2pro is the internal memory and the screen size. Aside that. They are both the same. Tecno should give something that will make someone want to spend.

  17. Gold says:

    I use pouvour 2pro and with all Av seen from this new 3,the 2pro still remains the best in all the pouvours for now. Imagine 3gb ram, 32 GB internal memory, and pics, while the 3 has nothing up-to this. instead is lower. 2pro still remains the best

    • Kunde Moses says:

      Please the pouvoir 3 as far as I know is 32 gb internal storage while the pouvoir 2 pro in the other hand has 16gb and the screen size of the pouvoir 3 is 6.2 while the other is 6.0 and I think that’s the major difference in the two

  19. Kunde Moses says:

    I like this phone and I will like to buy it but I want to understand some few things about the pouvoir 3, what version is it? Secondly how many GB lnternal storage does it have? I was made to understand that the Ram remains the same as the pouvoir 2pro, that is 2gb ram, pls is that equally true? Pls I need candid answers from those that have used or are using the phone.
