Tecno boom j8 Design and display

The tecno boom j8 is a mobile device that has a plastic body which is totally appealing to the eye, also rimmed with a metallic frame probably for durability. This device also boasts of a massive 5.5 inch IPS display raising expectation of great wide viewing, though that expectation is a bit tempered by a HD resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, of which i think is decent for the tecno boom j8.
