    1. tecno p3 doesnt switch off any how. What causes to do so depends on the type of network provider u are using. It doesnt happen on etisalat, glo and airtel. So if u check very well, u will discover that the ones that switches off are those that browse wit mtn. Thank u. Kindly change ur sim frm mtn to any other sim, prefferably, etisalat.

  19. Please between Tecno N3 and P3 which one is better cos i learnt most of the applications on P3 does not work correctly.please i need help cos i wanted the P3

  20. Tenco P3 is a piece of sh*t. All outdated pre installed apps like youtube and whatsapp CAN NEVER be updated. its damn slow and powers of at will… at your own risk!

  21. my phone watsapp is malfunctioning and any time i try to update, am told insufficient storage available. please help me.

  22. This Tecno thing is a hoax. They claim it has 512 Mb internal memory when it actually has 175 mb only. It hangs and goes off on its own.

    1. The features are good but much similar to techno’s n3.Otherwise techno is doing a commendable job.

  23. Well, I just hope to get it at the computer village tomorrow. So that I can be among the first to get it distributed.

  24. Thanks to tecno.
    I just bought tecno n3 few weeks ago and i have no regrets. I will buy this p3 for my girl friend. I love it

    Etisalat, Nigeria’s most innovative
    network provider, to launch the latest
    addition to the TECNO smartphone
    family, the TECNO P3 in the Nigerian
    The launch which took place today at
    the Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island,
    Lagos, was attended by a cross
    section of the Nigerian media and the
    crème de la crème of the Nigerian
    showbiz industry. At the launch event,
    Etisalat unveiled a twelve-month
    special promotion for its subscribers
    offering 100MB free data bundle on

    The TECNO P3 is an entry-level

    internet savvy Nigerians are in dire
    need of a fast, innovative and
    seamless internet experience. These
    experiences are what TECNO P3
    smartphone brings, and that also
    informs why we partnered with
    etisalat”. Arif went on to explain that
    consumers can choose either the
    Etisalat customized version available

    services to satisfy this needs.
    Etisalat’s fast easyblaze, 3.75G
    broadband service combined with
    these TECNO phones is yet another
    example of our continuous effort to
    bring our customers easy access to
    the internet.”
    Also speaking at the event, Alex
    Dadson, Sr. Director of Business
    Development for Qualcomm West

    TECNO in manufacturing smartphones
    according to the Qualcomm Reference

    Nigerian market the best 3G
    smartphone experience. QRD is the
    only program of its kind that brings
