Tecno L8

Tecno L8 Plus or Gionee M5 Mini which one to get?

 TECNO L8 plus: a better Deal than the Gionee M5 mini

Gionee M5 mini was launched earlier this year while the Tecno L8 plus was released just last month into the market. Meanwhile there is also TECNO L8 which came with 1GB RAM. I was checking the prices of phones on konga.com and I discovered that the Tecno L8 plus is now back in stock. The device was said to have been out of stock last two weeks in the market and lots of people were eager to get the device.

TECNO got the pricing of the Tecno L8 plus right because the price of M5 Mini is a bit higher but specs-wise, the TECNO L8 Plus is better with its monstrous 5050mAh battery capacity and the full body metallic design

Some of the major attractions of the Tecno L8 Plus is the monstrous battery life. The device boast of 5050mAh battery which is rumoured to last for four days on constant usage and 2GB RAM. Another attractive feature on the Tecno L8 plus is the metallic unibody appearance.
