On the front of the Tecno F3 you have a 5.5 inch 960 by 480p 18 by 9 aspect ratio display. On top of that display you have a 5 megapixel camera with flash and front firing speaker.

As for battery, it has 2400 mAh battery whic gives you around 4 hours and 30 minutes of screen on time which is only slightly better than the Tecno F2. With medium usage you still need to charge before your day runs out. For light users who save data by turning it off occasionally it would last you a full day.
If you wish to get a device for media consumption, to keep up with social media maybe occasionally share selfie or two and your budget is just right on target the Tecno F3 is what all of that price .
