Smartphones just become bigger and bigger. So if you’re in the market for smaller, compact devices, your options are quite limited. Thankfully, a new one has been introduced for you, the TECNO Pop 5S.

Most of the phones today come with at least 6-inch screens. But if you want something smaller, there are rare devices like the TECNO Pop 5S, which only has a 5.7-inch HD+ display.


Sadly, the smaller size also resulted in underwhelming hardware. For one, the display itself only has an HD+ panel, which actually shouldn’t be a big deal since it’s a small screen after all.

Albeit, everything else is quite limiting. It only has a quad-core processor from UNISOC, has a low-resolution 5-megapixel camera, and a small 3,020mAh battery that still charges via the old microUSB port. It also didn’t get to have a fingerprint scanner and will only rely on the face unlock feature of its low-resolution 2-megapixel front camera.


On the upside, the TECNO Pop 5S has a really affordable price of MXN2,239 (around Php5,500) and is now available in Mexico. If you really want to go small but without a compromise on power, you can check out the ASUS Zenfone 8 or the iPhone SE 2020 — both have screens under 6-inches and flagship-level features.
