  1. From what I see here, this one definitely beats the Camon C8

    1. There is no argument about that. btw, I learned today that Camon now has 6.0 update.

    2. easy tiger, two of them are great devices. don’t be so quick to judge

      1. It depends on your choice..i have used both devices and i love themm..i cannot resist any

        1. Some people missed the part where it indicates that Only you get the two of them??? habe give your siblings one na.

          1. He should be a cheerful giver

    3. Are you sure though?

  2. The HiOS? will there be an obvious difference?

    1. of course!

      The browser uses chromium engine, that’s the kind you find on google chrome.
      There’s the breathing lights function.
      The call embarrasment blocker.
      The boom player app.
      The gaming functions

      and more importantly, now that we have HiOS, it allows me to update my phone regularly.

    2. This question is funny, still looking a reason why. So you think a reputable company will spend money on developing an OS that won’t have obvious differences

      1. It is just a question nah. He/she who asks question does not get lost. Lol

  3. i hear it is selling for 41K. Is yours cheaper? I can patronize you.

  4. Tecno should be more upgrade to bring out gorilla screen

    1. Oga go and check out retail outlets. Tecno started making gorilla screen 3 years ago.

    2. Lol,the phantom 5 is a gorilla screen device

      1. Yes, I read so too.

    3. @Adeshola wake up, this is 2016 oh!!

  5. i will purchase a techno device when they upgrade to amoled displays

    1. They have other versions with amoled display with gorilla 3 glass.

  6. if tecno can use snapdragon chips from Qualcomm.. instead of mtk… I will be buying their products

  7. compare for me c8 n J8

    1. There is really nothing much to be compared, C8 is a great phone with emphasis on the camera quality, while the J8 is a great phone with emphasis on music. But considering the fact that the J8 runs in the new HiOS. J8 wins.

      1. I have been reading about the HiOS. I think it is pretty awesome

    2. I think they are both good.

  8. I really need one tecno Boom j8.

  9. what if my place there is no 4G is it posible to enjoy internet to that J8?

    1. laurent A.chuwa,
      Yes you will. 3G is sufficient for your internet browsing.

  13. the battery is giving me so much problem

    1. Battery?? The new j8? Please can you be more specific, because I have been using the boom J8 for 3 weeks now and I have no problem with the battery.

    2. @don please are you sure you are not mistaken?? I have never heard anyone complain about the boom j8 battery.

  14. Kenny Blessing@Busybrain

    I really love the phone’s specifications but why is the battery life so low compared to techno L5 with 5000mAh.Had it been its up to 5050mAh or 6000mAh l would have tried buying the phone.

    1. Techno is tryna do 419 with their products,they don’t want yu to have it all, what ur phne lacks, u’ll find it in anoda and what dat one lacks, u’ll find it in urs. I use L6 but d features of j8 is more better but my batt is better though.

      1. Eeyah..sorry
        But is there l6?i thought it was l5

      2. Lol @419. No phone is perfect!! But the boom J8 comes with impressive features that brings the word “perfect” to life.

  15. tecno j8 its owesome
