Tecno N7 Smartphone full Specifications & Features with Video

TECNO is the brand that have overtaken Nigeria by storm when it comes to phone sales. The prices of TECNO phones are very low compared to other kinds of phones with the same specs and function. 
In fact, Nokia that used to dominate phone market in Nigeria, has lost huge market share and have been replaced by tecno phones in the hands of low and middle class income earners.

Of course TECNO phones have always been though of as a silly China phone, but with the series of smartphones been released by this company e.g TECNO N3, D5 etc, one will say that the game is on especially with the new TECNO N7.

Have been asked by many people if I had seen the new and latest Tecno N7 smartphone developed by Tecno Mobile Industries, and I have always replied that I have not only seen but am presently using one.

In case you don't know, Tecno N7 is the latest and highest range smartphone made by Tecno Mobile and below are the specs and features of the device including a video here.

NOTE: 4GB ROM comes with 512mb RAM but the 2GB ROM comes with 750mb RAM

Price: Price is between 29 - 30k in Naira. Slot a phone store located at Ikeja, computer village, sells for N30, 000, while some other stores sells for N31, 000. However I bought mine at another Tecno shop for N29, 000

It comes pre-installed with Whatsapp, Google+, Bible, Quran, Facebook, Twitter, Asphalt 6, Angry Birds etc. and I have installed AVG anti virus, Temple Run 2, Skype, Viber etc on it.
Am currently using this device and I can say that the price is okay. I have also included images so that u can see it for yourself.

This device is okay but not without a down side.
The down side is in the screen resolution and RAM space. I believe that TECNO should have increased the RAM to 1.0GB instead of its 512mb and also, the screen resolution should have been around 1200 x 1200 due to screen size. 
RAM issue is noticeable when a lot of apps are running in the background, and you try playing a game like Asphalt 6, it could hang for a while and get back into play. However, when some apps are stopped, game play is seamless and enjoyable.
This device is rootable. In fact Wondershare Mobile Go sees this device as HTC TECNO.

Obviously, a higher version of TECNO N7 will show up soon enough and I would like to trade in this N7 for that. 
I have included images and a video link here for you just in case you had like to see what this device actually looks like.


Obviously, the game is on for smartphone makers. If TECNO can come up with something as good as this, then we are sure that even better devices and tablet are in the works and would be released soon.

  • Solid build
  • Fairly good camera
  • Strong and long lasting battery
  • Low RAM
  • Low screen resolution
  • Possibility of operating system upgrades are minute

    1. Mr Abbey, sorry for the late response, office work.

      Google services, i remember when I was using N7, i couldn't install google services too cos it wasn't compatible with the phone. It usually take a lot of ram and space in the long run.
      One problem though is that without it, you may not be able to use YouTube, Google+ and some other apps.
      I will suggest you just forget about Google Services all together. I believe an upgrade of Operating system and phone is what may benefit you.

  25. on it i can use youtube on this n7 but with others which i download i cant used it, dat what required google play services.

  26. Plz my N7 is saying phone memory full when I don't even save anything on the phone, all my apps are on the memory card, plz what can I do, I can't install any app at this moment. Have even try to delete some of the app that came with the phone, too bad :(

    1. Follow the guide in this link to help solve the problem http://phonegist.blogspot.com/2013/11/how-to-free-up-internal-memory-space-on.html

  27. I have purchased my Techno M7. I enabled 3G and affected the network. How can i correct this.

  28. I have purchased my Techno M7. I enabled 3G and affected the network. How can i correct this.

    1. Maybe there's no strong 3G network around your area. If that's the case, switch back to 2G network.

  29. Both the iPhone 5s and the Galaxy S5 offer very different specs when it comes to display, with Samsung choosing to kit its newest offering out with a Full-HD, Super AMOLED screen measuring 5.1-inches.Android phones in general have always stuck to the larger screen sizes, with the iPhone sticking to the more pocket friendly 4-inch size.

  32. First, that error is due to corrupt OS or if you installed a custom ROM on your N7. Follow this link http://goo.gl/nK0zAw for more info
