From wallpapers and themes to fonts, ringtones and layouts, there are plenty of ways for you to customise and personalise your phone. It’s a reflection of your style, tastes, and interests, and even though you have the same phone model as others, it can definitely standout from the rest. Here’s the lowdown on the customisable settings on TECNO phones that you can experiment with to make your phone uniquely you.

Static, digital and AI generated wallpapers

The wallpaper on your home screen is your first canvas for creativity. Some people snap a picture, perhaps of loved ones or pets, and use that as their background, while others choose from the wide array of static wallpapers that come pre-loaded or that can be downloaded from online. TECNO’s newest phones take it one step further with the AI wallpaper generator. You type in what you are looking to create, for example a dog playing in a field, choose the style that you want the wallpaper in and watch as the generator works magic creating the wallpaper based on your idea. The possibilities are endless with the AI wallpaper generator, and you can change the wallpaper as often as you like to keep things fresh.

Create your own theme

In addition to creating wallpapers based on your ideas, on TECNO’s phones you can also create your own themes. Choose from various elements including colours, lock screen and home screen background wallpapers, icons, fonts, and much more to mix and match to create a phone theme that’s just right for you. Or you can simply choose from one of the pre-loaded ones if you need some more time to think some more about all the elements, or download some from online.

Your favourite ringtone

The stereotypical ‘ring ring’ of a phone has mostly disappeared, replaced by all manner of ringtones, and even people’s favourite songs alerting them to incoming calls. It makes it easier to realise that it’s your phone that’s ringing, so that you don’t miss important calls, but is also an indication of your audio tastes. Who would believe how far ringtones have come from the days of polyphonic ones. While some come pre-loaded on the device, others can be downloaded from online to be used.

Customising the phone’s layout

Navigating around your device and accessing your frequently used apps and tools should be quick and easy, and the layout on the device can assist with this. However, this can also be used to customise and personalise the phone, as not everyone will necessarily enjoy the same layout. The first choice to be made is between gesture or three button navigation, depending on your preference. Functions on TECNO phones such as multi-window, which allows for multiple floating windows on the screen at once to enhance the ease of multi-tasking, and Smart Panel, which adds a slide out tab on the home screen to access all your frequently used and favourite apps, can also be used to customise your phone just the way you like it. There’s also Eye Care, which adjusts the brightness of your display, particularly if you have sensitive eyes.


Go and explore all these customising and personalising options and settings so that your phone is perfect for you (options and settings may vary depending on device model). TECNO devices are available from select retail partners, including Ackermans, Dunns, Edgars, Game, HiFi Corp, Jet, Makro, Mr Price, PEP, Pick n Pay, Shoprite, TFG, Vodacom and Woolworths (availability varies per retailer per product and while stocks last).
