13 Things You Need To Know About The Tecno L9plus by shiftback: 2:31pm On Apr 20
1: Fast Boot up time
The L9plus takes 40 seconds to boot up and 47 seconds to completely power off, that's impressive by most standards.

2: 720p resolution on a 6inch display clearly shows the display isn't its strong point. Regardless, the display is surprisingly good and sunlight legibility is ok provided the brightness is cramped up.

3: Android Nougat? Yes, but no HIOS.
HIOS has matured over the years and it was kinda surprising to see that Tecno opted to load up the L9plus stock android version. I know those that likes their dessert plain will be happy with this.


4: Reasonable fast charge time
It makes perfect sense to equip the L9plus with fast charge. You get from 1% to 88% in a little under 2hrs. For a Smartphone packing 5000mah battery thats impressive.

5: Amazingly battery life.
No surprises here. Phone usage habits differ, you are sure to get 2days worth of juice from the L9plus. I don't know about you, but 2days without needing to charge is a huge deal for me.

6: No quick access to settings like ultra power saving mode. I think this feature only comes with forked Android skins. With Stock Android you'll have to get right into the settings and enable it.

7: Very decent speakers hence notification sounds can be very loud.
This sound coming out of this phone is quite loud. Not loud enough to do an outdoor owanbe but loud enough to not miss when a call comes thru.

8: Decent Multi tasking ability.
The L9plus can handle quite a few light apps running simultaneously but don't Coman start playing GTA IV while having all those heavy resource hungry apps open at the same time.

9: Gets a bit warm from extensive use
like a lot of Smartphones out there, the L9plus gets warm from extensive use, nothing in the extreme so na worries.

10: Decent Camera
You'd expect that the camera will be average but it turns out the they take pretty decent pictures. You also get all the additional camera settings that comes with stock android so yes, you can tweak the exposure and white balance.

11: Benchmark results aren't too impressive.
This is to be expected considering the L9plus packs a madiatek 6580 quad-core processor. The results speaks for itself.

12: Like on the iPhone and xiaomi devices, you get a quick ball setting floating on the homepage. This provides quick and easy I access to shortcuts and apps. For example, you can quickly take screenshots, get quick access to the apps you use, plus it also acts as your navigation buttons. For those that find it annoying, it can be turned off by going to the T.point and deactivate it.

13: I couldn’t enable the option to view my battery percentage.
I noticed that the battery percentage wasn’t visible on the L9 Plus, this is actually normal with stock android OS, however, efforts to activate “System tuner” an option that would allow you to view your battery percentage proved futile.

This is not correct. You can actually restrict background data on the L9plus.

Android Nougat offers a different way to do it...
1: Launch settings
2: Under the ‘Wireless & networks’ section there’s an entry labelled ‘Data usage.’ Tap on it.
3: You’ll see a bunch of options here pertaining to cellular data. Tap on ‘Data Saver.’
4: See the toggle switch? Tap to turn it ON.

Turning on the feature will start limiting access to apps in the background.

The L9plus is a very decent Smartphone. Take your time to explore your phone and it's settings. Enjoy!

Not true! I use the phone and the data saver is what's saving my small data, a really good feature.

I can't relate with the phone getting a little warm with extensive use, maybe I've not used it enough you say? Lol I run lots of apps tho, browsers, music players but I don't play game, not a game person. The phone is a powerful phone literally.

Except for the absence of 4G, I think every other part ticked the box.

that cable is called OTG cable. also used for connecting SD and transferring files between phone and the SD.

I think the focus was on the battery life. While Tecno made all other thing normal. I still think it's a decent device altogether.

Gaming makes every iPhone warm over time and even really hot depending on how much graphics load the game requires too.

Yeaahhhh you know how it's so easy to transfer files on computer, with the OTG cable it makes it much easier to transfer between phones like it

were a PC, not to mention how it can charge another device, weak devices grin grin

Lol. But you can't compare it with the CX's camera. Just like how you can't compare the L9 Plus's battery to the VX's battery. Both phones are alright though

Not a bad device but could be better. Apart from the huge battery which is impressive, I think there should be more

That's exactly the whole point of the L series. If huge battery capacity is a priority for me then the L9PLUS is something I'll consider

How much is the phone
Re: 13 Things You Need To Know About The Tecno L9plus by paolokonqueror(m): 11:46pm On Apr 27
Not comparing, I'm just saying the L9 Plus is good enough and it even has a good camera that can actually compete with any phone out there including the CX, plus the everlasting battery so, yeah!

Of course I agree, it's a great phone and the camera ain't bad too. Even though battery life is the most important feature of a phone for me.

Not limiting the device at all. But minor improvements won't hurt it. 4G?
