  3. am a tecno d5 and it runs out of memory every single second so i have to uninstall my apps except one or two that i will have uninstalled with low memory occupation.. the most annoying thing is that i do install some on the S.D card but the internal memory still runs out as if i install the app on the phone’s memory…. in your specifications you claimed the OS is android 4.0 ice cream sandwich but it is android 2.3.5 zombie.. i just want to know if i am not using the right phone and the right steps i can take to enhance its fastness..

  4. bought D5 i nice phone but since the screen got faulty i ve been unable to fix it went to tecno office in onitsha but they didnt have the part pls Tecno make sure u provide enough parts for your phones cos it been more than 2 months since mine got faulty and the customer care could need more customer service training.

  5. I really love this D5 but i will love to knw more about it bfore i buy it. I want to knw what it can do and what it can no do. Especially the low internal memory and lack of 3G espect. Thanks and stay bless

  9. I am currently using a tecno n3 bt I hve gotten hold of a D5.
    D5 is better than n3 since it has a bigger screen n more pixels per inch (ppi).which means one will get better n more fine images.
    The only limitation with D5 is lack of 3g network meaning slower internet speed,bt I dnt expect it to b tht slow!!
    Tecno is realy doing an amazing job in african market!

  10. Dseries are all cool… u can improve d speed of browsing n downloading by downloading 2g/3g booster on google play store …u will enjoy it.

  11. Guys pls I need 2 know if the tecno d5 can access googleplay, if it has gmaps and if it can stream live videos pls I need ur reply

  12. D5 is d best 2 me.even wit d 2g it browse faster 2 d xtend dat am speechless 2 d condemnation of it.d try of it wil convince u.

  13. For sure the way i have seen this Tecno D5,it means Tecno company you are the best now,I love this type of a mobile phone.Oh my God i wish TECNO would give it to me as agift! May Tecno last longer and continue to bring more best products.I have been using these other small type of Tecno mobile phone,they are good and their battris are good.Many of them have a very fast internet which is not the case to other phones produced by other companies.
    TECNO mobile phone, you are the best for me here in Uganda.A big number of people like Tecno here in my country Uganda,They are good and not very expensive!!

  14. It is a nice phone but it should be upgrade to 3.5g or 4g to actualise the customer test n market oriented

  15. I don’t like tecno D5 courx Its not good that’s all because their no 3G I don’t like phones without 3Gs tecno is bad please inform others not to wast their money. Courx am usin tecno D5 and the browsing power is not strong…..mtcheww I regret bying tecno

    1. waiting for d5 to be modified to have a 3g,internal mem of at least 1gb and a ram also,of 1gb.IT WOULD BE VERY POWERFUL

    2. Am using tecno d5 n is realy gud but note dat cause der is no 3G going to de google play s difficult so if u wnt to dwld any iterm get to a place were u will get a wifi n u will feel de fone .for more detail halla on 0204613719

  16. Hello,
    I bought Tecno D5,but I got trouble becouse I used password thereafter I forgot I need help to reuse it.It is wonder full phone,cheaper with android OS!!!

    1. y did u 4get ur passwrd solomon ,u have restore the phone by connecting the cable to the phone and fellow the steps

  17. dis d5 has no 3G hence limited acess 2 GOOGLE PLAY and to make it worse it can’t suport GOOGLE NOW.N3 is a lot beta.

    1. nana akuwa the price is much affordable and i can educate u alot abt the phone b4 buyn .let me no when ever u get ready to buy.

  18. D5 has dis 3G Problem, but for me i prefare d5 more to n3, cus n3 doesn’t have a flash and a secondary camera+ 2.3.5 os version, and low internal memory. D5 is gud 2 go…

  19. I am also having issues with video aspect of tecno d5 when skyping, but d audio call on skype works fine. I have equally stream videos through youtube successfully, though it pauses at interval & continues again from the stopping point. note the phone worth thrice it price in the market. what more do you xpect from a 2g phone that is compatible with lots of application. get yours today.

  20. i think d only difference is dat n3 has 3G and it is of less ram, internal storage space, screen scre, OS and doesn’t have secondary
    camera compare to d5. D only thing d5 suffers is 3G ntwk. It’s a gud phone 4 me and a yes over n3.

    1. according to d info i got from a blogger ‘mymobnet’it can skype but wont dat much smooth bcos of lack of 3G, d price is arround N12,000 if it havn’t less.

  21. pls i want to buy this D5 but i want to know full details and its capability first,can it straem video? can it play youtube fluidly? can it watch web tv? how fast it is arround the web? pls i need to know.

    1. i want to knwo more about d d5,can it download books,video, your tube and all other features faster. What is d diffrence btn n3 and d5 please wat due u advice me to buy. I cherish all but confuse help await ur reply.
