The R7 is a mid-entry device from the Chinese led company – Tecno.  This is phone is ideal for users especially Customers that are on a strict budget and can’t afford Premium Tecno Smartphones on the market.

Most people often associate cheap as fake, however, far from that train of thought the phone is an affordable device that holds premium features.

Before we delve into the review, I’ll first start by highlighting the pros and cons of the device.

 PROS – The Good:

  • Great Camera: it features a 13 MP rear camera that comes with ample features like Geo-tagging, auto focus with LED flash.
  • Amazing Design: On the first touch, you’ll notice the high quality materials that’s used to construct the body of the phone making it feel comfortable in the hand.
  • Average RAM storage:  The phone features an average RAM storage that allows the phone to run multiple apps & multi-task without crashing.
  • Extremely Affordable: judging by the price tag, the R7 is too cheap for its price. Check out the specs of the phone below.

Features, Design and Display

Featuring a 5.5 inches screen, this phablet device offers a window screen that allows users to enjoy the pleasure of viewing.  what’s more, the R7 is extremely comfortable to get a hold of, even with one hand.


Giving that the phone is a mid-entry device, the 13MP rear camera of the phone is somewhat unbelievable. Though the Camera pixel is the same as that of premium Tecno Phones like the Camon CX and Tecno C9, it doesn’t match their clear shots and precision.

The front camera on the other hand sports a 5MP camera that is suitable for video calling and taking selfies.


An average 2430mAh battery boots the phone to action. I seriously doubt the competence of the battery juice to pull through the day. However, you can buy a power bank and save yourself the dissatisfaction of plugging the phone to a power source from time to time.


The R7 goes a sale for a price between N35,000 to N40,000. E-commerce stores like Konga and Jumia are the best places to find a reasonable discount for the smartphone.
