First of all, Tecno L9 Plus has been tagged by its manufacturer, Bigger And Longer and we’ll tell you why that is.

This latest model in the L series features a large battery and display which are its most outstanding specs.

The battery does not come as a surprise since all the devices in this series have at least a 5000mAh battery and one can assume that they were built to compete with Gionee’s Marathon series.

They may not hit the 6000mAh mark of the Gionee M6, but trust us when we say this line of smartphones can offer the same level of battery life, if not better.

Take a look at its predecessor the Tecno L8, L8 Plus, and L9, you’ll agree that this is a series that speaks volume when it comes to battery life.

You can also compare this series to the the Spark Series whose devices like K7 and K9 Plus focus mainly on their camera.

We’ll go ahead and say this quick, the difference between Tecno L9 Plus and the Spark K9 Plus is the battery.

Asides its battery, the L9 Plus has so much more to offer and that is in the area of its camera, RAM, processor and operating system.

Make comparisons such as the Tecno L9 Plus vs Infinix Hot 5, Hot 4 Pro, Note 4, and Note 3 and you’ll agree that  this smartphone still comes out strong.

This and many more make the Plus a contender with several others out there.

Find that hard to believe? Then give us a moment and we’ll convince you!

Tecno L9 Plus Full Phone Review

Here’s the part where we give you the Tecno L9 Plus battery review as well as other specs of this smartphone.

This will help you compare among a list of other devices within its price range and to decide if this smartphone is a better option.

So, check this out!


Tecno L9 Plus picture

The L9 Plus features a screen size of  6-inch which is obviously large.

We found the same screen on the Spark K9 and we’ll tell you what we said back then.

This is a screen that will enable you to read its content with ease.

You don’t have to strain your eyes to make out the words neither do you have to have to rely on a small keyboard layout to type.

Place your fingers comfortably on the keys and you’re sure you won’t be pressing two keys at the same time as is usually the case of a smaller screen.

But when it comes to portability, you may find it a bit difficult to carry this device about with ease.

Its large size means you may not be able to easily operate it with one hand and also slide into your wallet without it pocking out.

We don’t expect that this will be a problem given that its advantage outweighs it.

It is also worthy to note that the L9 Plus has an IPS LCD display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and pixel density of 244 PPI.

While we may have expected a Full HD resolution on this large screen, it seems Tecno had other plans.

This will result in a slow battery drain, thereby contributing majorly to its ability to last longer asides the large capacity.

Alternatively, if the resolution was stepped up, you’ll have a much sharper and clearer display which your eyes may be able to tell apart from the latter resolution.

The screen, therefore, at that resolution can give you crisp and clear images, texts and videos.


The L9 Plus boasts of a metallic design which gives it its premium look and durability.

You’ll find most high-end smartphones sporting the same build which tends to prevent the phone from wearing and tearing easily.

The dimension of this smartphone is 162 x 81.8 x 7.99 mm and its weight is 180g. This is a slim build that doesn’t weigh a lot.

As a result, you can use it for hours without feeling like you’ve got an extra load on your hands.

There’s also a 2.5D curved screen to allow the smartphone to sit comfortably in your palms.

The Tecno L9 Plus colors include Sky Grey, Dark Blue, and Champagne Gold which is a lot to ensure that you get to own the smartphone in your favorite color, or something close to it.

The Gold color is likely what most people will settle for and we expect that this high demand for the color will influence its price over other colors.


The Plus has a  large RAM of 2GB which has been tasked with the duty of aiding in multitasking.

Therefore, more than one app can be run at the same time and this means that a large number of apps can be opened.

You can run memory intensive apps and games that tend to take a lot of space and they won’t hang while the smartphone is in operation.

The inbuilt storage on this variant of the L9 is 16GB and it can be expanded using a microSD card up to 32GB.

While the storage may be small, it is comforting to know that it can be expanded to a large capacity using an external storage device.

So, it’s still a good trade even though content tends to load faster from the internal storage than from an external storage.

Nevertheless, get an original memory card to support this phone and you’ll be able to store as many movies, songs, ebooks, apps, and games.


Like the Tecno Spark Plus, the L9 Plus is powered by a quad-core MediaTek processor.

This is a CPU with a frequency of 1.3GHz  which is fast enough to allow you to carry out major operations on the phone speedily.

Launch your apps, connect to the internet, chat on Whatsapp, take pictures and you won’t notice any considerable lags.

To make this phone easy to navigate without great expertise needed, it uses the Tecno’s customized user interface HIOS and it is based on Android 7.0 (Nougat).

The Nougat is also known to come with battery and memory management features to enhance your level of productivity.

It can clear the device’s cache to free up space and also close apps running in the background to save your battery.


Tecno L9 Plus camera is another thing we’re grateful for asides its battery.

This is a camera that has been bumped to 13MP (AF Back Camera with Flash) at its rear and 5Mp at its front.

For a device that is targeted at battery life, it is quite impressive due to the fact that we’ve seen devices who claim to center on camera, but also feature this same resolution on their front and back camera.

Now we don’t like to mention names, so let’s forge ahead.

The rear camera at 13MP should translate into a great image capability however, what’s written in the paper is not crafted on a rock.

Therefore, the value should not determine if you choose one phone over the other.

This is because we’ve seen smartphones like the iPhone 7, 8, X and others with a lower resolution camera and you’ll still be impressed with their picture quality.

Before we derail further, the L9 Plus’s front camera also comes with a LED flash to ensure that you don’t need to turn on the light in the room or use another flashlight to aid in taking pictures if at all the place is dark.

Other camera settings of this smartphone include Autofocus, Panorama, HDR, and Geotagging.


The highlight of the Tecno L9 Plus is its battery which is 5000 mAh.

This is remarkable, but then we aren’t surprised that Tecno Mobile went that high with this model given that all the smartphones in this series are not joking in this aspect.

Therefore, the battery life of this smartphone should last you up to 3 days if you’re not a heavy user, and let’s say a two days if you’re always gaming away or browsing on the smartphone.

That being the case, this smartphone is not all about numbers, it actually gives a real-life operation that defends what is written on its specs sheet.

Set aside your power bank and only charge the phone with its original charger and you can be sure of a long-lasting battery for years.

Tecno has also added that this phone can provide 72 hours of battery life on heavy usage and capture up to 1000 Photos after a 5 Minutes Fast Charge.


The Plus is a dual SIM smartphone which supports two micro SIMs.

Each SIM is supported in its own slot, therefore, you won’t have to swap between the microSD and a second SIM.

In the same vein, there is a fingerprint sensor mounted on the device’s rear.

What it does, is to enable you to unlock the device, take pictures, and answer calls using your unique fingerprint.

In the area of security, you may not have the need to use passwords and patterns given that an easier and more secure method of securing the phone has been provided.

Now, let’s answer some questions that some users have been throwing our way:

  • Does Tecno L9 Plus have a fast charge? Yes, it does, Tecno’s website where the specs sheet is provided confirms this.
  • Does Tecno L9 Plus have screen record? It definitely does. There are also third-party applications on play store you can use to record the screen.
  • Does Tecno L9 Plus have a fingerprint? Yes, it does.
  • Does Tecno L9 Plus have a notification light? Yes, there is a sensor on the front that notifies you of missed calls and received messages.
  • Does Tecno L9 Plus have 4G? No, it does not. The smartphone only supports 2G and 3G network connectivity.

Those aside, other connectivity options of this smartphone include WiFi, Bluetooth, OTG, and GPS. Its sensors are Ambient Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, and G-Sensor.

This and many more are some of the reasons why L9 Plus is a good device.

We’ve also taken its price into consideration and compared it with smartphones like the Infinix Note 4 and Camon CX who are also in its range and it all boils down to the fact that the Plus is a strong competitor.

Now it’s left for you to decide if this guy is worth being your companion for the next few years.
