Tecno Pova 5 Free Fire Special Edition unboxing

1 minute, 39 seconds Read

The Tecno Pova 5 just went official and we got a chance to check out its special Free Fire Special Edition. Here’s what we found inside that roomy box.

If you’re not familiar with Free Fire (Seriously? It has 1 billion downloads on Google Play), it’s a battle royale game, by Garena. So Tecno now partnered with the developers to offer the Pova 5 done up in this custom guise.

What it includes is an Amber Gold variant of the phone with a Free Fire sleeve for the box, a gift card valid for in-game purchases, and custom Free Fire stickers (with Kelly).

The other accessories inside the box are a bumper case, a 45W charger, USB cable, and earbuds.

The changes also run inside the phone, where you’re greeted with the Free Fire theme. It has a customized live wallpaper (featuring Hayato, Kelly, Moco, Maxim, or Wukong), custom app icons, and even special ringtone and notification sounds.

Note to potential owners – you will still need to download Free Fire as strangely enough it’s not preinstalled.

After you’ve downloaded it, the Pova 5 has a built-in Game Space powered by what Tecno dubs the Panther Engine – it lets you tweak the gaming experience as well as to limit your distractions.

A note on the Tecno Pova 5’s interesting finish. The design on the back is Mecha-inspired, aiming to replicate the look of a futuristic giant robot. Ours is the Amber Gold variant, but it’s not always yellow in hue. In fact, when looked at an angle, the rear panel is more of a subtle cyan color.

It’s really lovely to look at but that quickly fades due to the smudge-prone glossy finish. The sides are also glossy with a mirrored finish, which perhaps is meant to emulate stainless steel. An impressive design indeed, but also one that’s properly hard to keep clean.
