None that I have heard of. Many people using it seem to be enjoying it.
The battery is only 3000 mAh, I’ve seen it.
From what I read on the Tecno website, the battery capacity is 3800mAH, not 3000mAH. you might wanna effect the necessary corrections.
Hello Obama, thanks very much for the information, we will look into it!
