    1. Honestly, my husband bought the Infinix note 2 from his work colleague. the Phone is not bad but not fantastic either. He sold it to buy Boom J8 after adding some extra money.

  1. I am glad it will be upgradable to Marshmallow/ I will definitely consider buying it now.

    1. Hahaha it is 42-44k o. Please if you see it for 25k, buy 1000 QTY, I am willing to repurchase them for 35k from you

  2. I use the boom j8,the phone uses 4G and i love it ….I actually brought it because of the trip to paris option and i was thinking of dashing it to my lil cousin,but aftet i used it for a weekkkk,i turned a stingy aunt..lol

    1. Mehn… You stingy no be small o. Haba. be a cheerful giver. don`t you want your cousin to feel the Boom j8 like you?

    1. Recommended retail price is N40,999. To save you stress it is advised you buy it online. Nice choice you’ve made.

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

    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.

  4. What’s d battery life of ur phone and how many months or years uve been using it for pls?
    WhatsApp me 08065398505

  5. Am using c8 and d battery is giving me hell of troubles..am scared bout this j8 in particular..
    Wud also lyk to knw d exact price

    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.

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

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