  5. Hi! I have a problem with my Tecno R7 when i go to the phone book and start searching for a certain number it will take time to search please help

  6. You mean I’ve to buy an external memory card of 8G to r7..(2) my m7 tecno goes off often & I took to carlcare for repair I was told it’s out of warranty; that I should pay #10000 to fix it. what do you think I should do?

  7. Am in Uganda j got that phone in one of the shops at $400 why is it that expensive’j need but j neva bought it,,,,,

  8. Please can r7 be upgraded to Android 4.4.2 kitkat cos most of applications may not work out on jellybean android. Thanks

  9. I wanted to buy this R7, just to be told that’s its too big and the screen breakes easily and ones it does it would stop tourching until u change it. Pls is all these true.

    1. Tecno R7 has a 5.5″ screen which makes it handful but whether tz too big or not depends on u! Also, no smartphone has a break proof screen, u jst av to be careful not to allow it fall.

  10. please i need to know why the tecno r7 champahne gold is cheaper than the tecno black. coz i saw on jumia.com 35,000 and 37,000 respectively.

  11. I will like to ask which of the techno phone model that can run window application.thanks I need a responses

  12. Though, I don’t know how you used your phones but I bet you, you don’t used phone more than I do… Am among those that condemned tecno as the restored glory of China phone.. 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. If not for my carelessness that make the phone to dash on the floor from the third day of purchase. So please try and get a good one… You will enjoy it. Am a living testimony…. Juding

  13. Was falling in love with r7 but with all I have read ….pls tell me what to do. NCOs I do almost all sot of things on my phone as am always on d road .. I need a very strong battery life…..

  14. Is thr anybody who has had issues with using large size micro sd card, 16gb and above on his R7. The cards I got do not retain data, the last one was a sandisk 32gb( class 4). I still think its the memory cards that are bad, but will like know if there are different views.

  15. currently am using R7. Its cool but the battery is messy. I found out that it carries a li – polymer battery instead of li-on as claimed in the review. Do u suspect any shady deal from the seller. or is that it!

  16. Is wat Thomson said true about de bugs please I need to kn cos I will be spending a lot on de r7 n I need to be sure

  17. 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.

  18. 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).

  19. 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.

  20. 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!!!!

      1. Pls I bought my tecno r7 55000 and UN the third day of it it felled down and the first screen was broken. Pls where can I fix it.am in ekiti state now. My number 08062905904 pls its not Upto a month now.

    1. google carlcare and you’ll find the addresses where u can fix your tecno depending on the state you are. they are the customer service provider for tecno,infinix, itel etc

    1. 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?

      1. 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?

        1. 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 🙂

  21. 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?
