    Enough with the accessories, let’s take a proper look at the Phantom 8 device. The very first thing that caught my attention is the 4GLTE
    worldwide roaming
    meaning you can make use of your Phantom 8 device anywhere in the world.

    Another thing I noticed about the device is that the menu, exit and multitask buttons are not on-screen like its predecessor, which is actually cool for me.

    The Sim injector tray is at the left side of the device and it is accessible with the help of the sim card injector in the box. All you have to do is slight insert the pin the hole beside the tray, apply little pressure and the tray pops out.
    Note that the device comes with a hybrid sim tray which can only accommodate a single Micro Sim/SD Card or a Micro/Nano sim cards at a time.

    Overall the Phantom 8 is a remarkable device, based on a first impression Tecno did quite some good job on the device. So let me hand the rest over to you guys.
