But ever since I started using tecno.. R7,I can’t tell you any problem about the phone. The battery is hundred percent nice.. The camera is wow… It could be possible that there are fake ones in the market as well.. I bought mine 55000 naira and still enjoying it well.

  43. Thompson Eldorado

    Tecno smartphones and phablets are nice products but most times the reviews done here seem to be biased. Currently I am using Tecno A7, the ultimate speed machine called phantom Z. Previously, I used the Phantom A3 which is the M9 model. Most of my friends who copy from me depend on reviews here to trend along as the cost of Tecno smartphones and phablets are not one naira. They need advice and reviews from first hand users to obtain guarantee about these products and evaluate the pros and cons. The Phantom A3 as long as I am concerned have astonishing features but has a serious bug, one no customer of tecno’s will like to experience. Looking at its specs, I was proud with the M9 when I had it, but the bug issue was inevitable and it dampened my pride and all my peers that envied it fled for other substitutes. The worst of it was that the phablet did not last more than 3months before this bug – sensor and touchscreen – showed up. I wish Tecno would do something to restore confidence at no cost to its numerous customers who purchased the M9. The specs are good, but the hardware isn’t good enough. The Phantom Z is a good smartphone, but I currently have it undergoing numerous tests such as actual battery capacity under varying conditions such as 3G only limited service area, 2G only limited service area, actual screen resolutions as it currently appears that it’s Samsung counterparts have a better resolution. Other tests include vigorous usage reliability and gorilla glass claims, processor clock speed, etc., as these tests should be completed before a detailed review should be made. The blog contributors should restrict themselves to publishing the company claimed features until these beautiful and designed-to-be-tough and superb treasures are verified for consumers locally.

  44. It’s smart, but battery goes fast compare to
    my previous tecno D7(2500MAh). A phone with 6 core processors, and other amazing features should have atleast 3000MAh to support them. I charge it often because of its 2430MAh (too low).

  45. Does this phone work with dstv drifta?

  46. I need tecno r7 and am in Tanzania how can i get it

  47. Nyaaba Albert Ayinkara

    Wow I can’t wait to have it. I need two but in Tamale. How do l get them?. I kwn techno office in tamale but I will go there becos they don’t value their customers. Any help pls call +233-207529444 thank you.

  48. What is the current price in shillings,am interested

  49. The R7 is the phone every one would love to get but its battery life is not that good as that of F7 Please improve on it otherwise thanks the creativity!!!!

  50. My techno phantom A 3 screen got broken and I don’t know where to fix it

  51. Pls i need help. I wanna knw which to buy between BB Z10 and Tecno R7. Will be awaiting ur response.

    • Knowing which phone to buy depends on several factors but answering these 2 questions can help me recommend for u:

      1. What are the things u need in a smartphone?

      2. What is your budget like?

      • i just bought this r7 and its not displaying 3G. If i set it to 3G, the network (mtn) will not com up but will com up when i set it back to 2G. What could be the cause?

        • Hello,

          Please Confirm if there is MTN 3G Network coverage in your area, you can get a friend’s phone and set it 3G and see if the network comes up. Let me know the outcome.

          BTW, are you enjoying the phone? What are the things you love about it? Kindly share with me 🙂

  52. Wow…. This is a nice phone indeed , wish to have it though…

  53. Hi, I bought techno r7 but I didn’t get external memory card and asked the shopkeeper about it he answered me that techno r7 doesn’t external memory card it just use international memory only and if you want external memory card you have to buy it is fair?

  54. collins solidec

    the phablet is a nice one, and I think its better than the techno phantop… like it.. love to get update on newest phone
