So since the news of the launch of the TECNO Boom J8, have been excitedly waiting as i could only imagine what TECNO MOBILE has in store this time. The preceding device, the TECNO Boom J7 was quite an impressive piece. As a matter of fact, that’s actually when I started falling in love with the TECNO Mobile brand. First things first, the TECNO Boom J8 has been tagged the “Next Generation Music Phone” -- so we already have an idea of what to expect. BOOOMMM!!
Next Gen Music Phone
Strong Battery Life
Smooth HiOS Software
Beautiful Body Design
Plastic Back Cover
The HiOS UI Can Get Better
So let’s keep it rolling, and you may know that i am not particularly a gadget reviewer but i just love to share my impressions about great brands and products.. *winks*
Next Generation Music Phone:
The TECNO Boom J8 looks very elegant with the phone speakers sitting at the bottom. The six magnetic high performance speakers guarantees users an amazing musical experience. To make this experience even better, the BOOM J8 comes with a pair of the BOOM Headphones. Now this headphone has an impedence of 32omhs with a sensitivity of around 111 decibels which means they are almost just as loud as a premium headphone.
Of course, you also have the TECNO Boom Player and this about the best music app that allows you to play your local music from your device, stream and download your favorite songs using earned points. The BOOM Player also keeps you up to date with your favorite artiste and also opens you up to a vast option of musical genre.
Now, this is the part where I score phones major point. With the fact that the TECNO Boom J8 comes with its own unique HiOS user interface; it promises an improved App management with a highly optimized software feature leading to a 'really really' great BATTERY LIFE. The battery is a non-removable 3000maH and depending on how you use it -- if you manage your running apps properly, then this could just be your best phone yet, battery-wise.
Body Design and Display:
Most will want to call this an iPhone look-alike but i personally think its an improvement from TECNO MOBILE. The ultra thin metallic edge which makes the BOOM J8 really cool gives you a classy feel. On top of the phone to the left corner is the headphone plug and below between the speakers is the USB Port. And by the right side of the phone are the volume and power buttons sitting properly with a sleek and comfortable feel. Now, that’s a turn on for me right there.
The Boom J8 has a Display of 5.5” HD IPS Touch screen with a resolution of 1280x720. In comparison with other 720p display, the viewing Is quite awesome.
Amazing Camera Quality:

So my excitement wasn’t just about the news of the release of the TECNO Boom J8, it was also of the HiOS UI! Now, I knew for a fact that this will provide some unique privileges and so far it hasn’t disappointed me. This part is where TECNO MOBILE deserves a pat on the back for this feat. Though i expect certain improvements.
The HiOS provides the opportunity to choose your preferred interface theme including the lock-screen. You can also select font styles to suit you making you generally enjoy the interface of your phone. Most interestingly, the HiOS also has this Power management feature that extends your battery life by a great deal.
The BOOM J8 retails at a Recommended Price of N41,000 and its available online and in stores near you. So guys, you all would be hearing from me again but until then, let me know what you think.
