The new TECNO Phantom 8 was launched some weeks ago and a lot of things have been said about the device.

After the launch of the Phantom 6&6 Plus, I was among the set of people looking forward to the next Phantom because the Phantom 6 for me, remains the best smartphone to grace the market last season.

So, the question was “what else would TECNO do that would wow their fans? Well, I guess they just answered the question with this “super” new Phantom 8.

OK, without wasting much time let’s dig into this device.

The amazing device comes in a stylish black box with the inscription of the number 8 written with a juicy, glossy gold paint at the front while the word “Phantom 8” is engraved at the side of the box.

And yea, I finally opened the box. Believe me when I tell you, this is one of the most attractive android smartphones from TECNO.

The device comes in a fashionable package, TECNO deserves a thumbs up for this, they sure know how to package.

I must keep this box away from my wife, because if she sets her eyes on it, she wouldn’t have a need to get a new jewellery box <<chuckling>>. The Phantom 8 is so well packaged, that you smell “classy” by just opening the box.

The first thing you see when you open the box is the phone itself as a black foil paper (with details of some Phantom 8 spec written on it) covering the screen.

 

Not trying to be too dramatic, but the new TECNO Super 8 (that’s how I like to it) is a feast for the eyes and what makes it so special is this: its tall, narrow shape that fits snugly in the palm and curved sides that scream "PREMIUM."

One thing I like about the Phantom 8’s design is the positioning of the back camera- although this isn’t new from TECNO, but the smooth positioning of the back camera, makes it amazing and different. Although, the phone’s glossy and glass finishing are still a bit too slippery for total comfort but the size and edges help you get a better grip on the handset. And yes inside the box is a protective cover the prevent this.

Will there be a Plus version? Well, that’s for TECNO to decide but with what I am seeing already, I don’t think there is a need because this got me all in love.

I take the foil off and start up the phone, but while we wait, let's look at what is inside the box...
