Kennedy Jr.

The phone is cool, I love everything about the size apart from the heavy weight of the phone.

Wajim Yerima

I bought the phone but I don’t know how/where to insert my sim card. Please explain to me. Thanks

Ekpa, Stephen Monday

There’s a little SIM ejector pin in the pack, slid it into a little hole at the side of the device to eject the SIM. Please read your manual for proper guidance.


Good day bro, please how far about b phone camera hope is nice and the phone graphics

Ekpa, Stephen Monday

Welcome to DroidAfrica Hussain. The samples I’ve seen so far are not bad. But don’t expect too much, remember, the focus of Tecno here is battery, not camera. Good Luck bro.

Nigerian guy 123

Take it to a phone store or use the sim injector to remove the sim plate and place it


My Tecno lc6 consumes a lot of data,what should I do please

Ekpa, Stephen Monday

Two things: you either increase your data budget or reduce your data consumption


I just got this phone and i couldn’t download Instagram from the play store because they said its not compatible …. what can I do pls

Ekpa, Stephen Monday

Since you just got the device, you should let some apps like Google play store and Google play services auto-update. You could also try updating them manually from your apps on playstore.

***just a side note: try confirm your phone is original


How will you know if the phone is original

Ekpa, Stephen Monday

Where you bought the phone is number one key to knowing the originality. Alternatively, you could try comparing the phones specs with what is written here.


Pls how far about the battery, how many days will it takes to shut down when it’s full

Stanley u-g

Please i misplaced the little injector pin for opening the sim and sd card space, is there any other object i can use to open that side or how can i open it?

Ekpa, Stephen Monday

Use any pin that can fit into that tiny hole, and the SIM will still eject. You can use SIM ejector of another smartphone, or simply use needle. However, as tempting as it might be, you might want to avoid the use of broom stick, or similar breakable objects.


Is the battery good


The phone is cool but I’m not able to transfer from it’s internal memory to SD card to clear space. Any help?


Go to xender, click on the menu, a dialog list will come up, go to setting, click on it, it will take you to download to SD or phone memory, click on SD card, then you click save


Am thinking of going for the pouvoir 3 air but how flat is the phone because I don’t like big bulgy phones

Ekpa, Stephen Monday

Check the dimensions, compare it with the phone you currently have, then, you’ll know how flat it is

Why does my phone blacks outs someone calls


Please I need urgent answer , anytime I dail number why is it always black and I will be unable to cut the call


why z it DAT each and every VPN goes off when I try to use my social media apps on my lc6 tecno

adeniyi ayomiposi

why is it that each time I receive a call while playing music,the music stops after I end the call and will just restart instead of pausing so I can play again

I might not understand fully what you mean. But it a normal thing for your music to get pause when a call comes in, and then resumes immediately after the call. But if what you mean is that the music doesn’t resume after call, the you should try another music player in that case. Google music app is a great alternative bro
