Tech Arena is a website that does not only give you the latest tech news but tech advice and comparison and review of gadgets to ensure our readers have full knowledge before buying that Smart phone/app. The article I wrote about reasons on why to own a tablet was actually a short and simple guideline to our readers on why they should consider small portable hand held devices and ditch that big boring big desktop or laptop.
Today’s article will feature A quick comparison between two tablets; the Tecno Phantom Mini Pad and the Samsung p6200 Mini tablet. As previously noted from my previous articles on Tecno Gadgets the Chinese Mobile phone Company is doing it right giving Kenyans with great taste for Smart phones and low budgets capability that smartphone or tablet at a relatively low price compared to other brands like Samsung.
However Samsung is still a favorite to many due to its massive campaigns, Promotions and large spending on Advertising. The move to actually integrate a 2Yrs warranty on Samsung branded products, personally is really convincing and seems quite impressive and catchy. This shows that the Samsung team actually has great trust in reliability, performance and durability of its Products. Check out the Quick Specs Comparison of the Samsung p6200 and Tecno Phantom Mini Pad.
