Overview Features

 Display and Build

For its display, the Tecno R7 sports a 5.5 inch HD Gorilla Glass which is 1280 by 720 pixels resolution and this resolution is equal to the sharpness on the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. The Gorilla Glass makes the screen tougher and protects it against scratches hence, using a screen guard on this device is not necessary. This display almost puts the Tecno R7 in the league of major high end devices like the Samsung Galaxy S5 and places it on the larger end of smartphone screens.

This android phablet has a slim body of 158mm tall, 78.5mm wide and, 8.4 mm thick. With its stylish and sleek design, it is probably the slimmest phone released by the Chinese company, Tecno. The Tecno R7 is a dual sim smartphone and the dual sim works on standby mode, meaning that when none of the SIMs are in use, then both SIMs will be active, but when a particular SIM is in use, the other SIM becomes inactive.

Although it might be difficult to operate the Tecno R7 with one hand due to its large display screen, Its light weight makes it easy to hold, easily slide into a pocket and carry around. It also has a plastic back cover and comes with a flip case cover.

Processor and OS

Tecno R7 features a 1.5GHz 6-Core Processor which tends to load apps and games faster with support for multi-tasking. This processor ensures maximum performance and power efficiency in the Tecno R7. 

It runs on Android 4.2 (JellyBean) OS, has a RAM size of 2GB capable of eliminating frequent lagging or hanging of running apps/games and gives it a significant performance boost over most mid-range phones. A 16GB in-built memory storage which can be expanded up to 32GB with a microSD card is included on this device.


It sports a 5.0MP BSI Front- facing camera for taking selfies with great quality and a 13MP BSI rear camera that offers up to 4128x3096 pixels resolution pictures. The BSI (Backside Illumination) on both cameras improves their performance in low light. With the inclusion of features like geo-tagging, auto focus, face detection, ability to capture 1080p high definition video, LED flash and at a megapixel of 13, one should expect pictures and videos of high quality from its rear camera.

Battery and Connectivity

The battery capacity on the Tecno R7 is 2430mAH and this is above the average battery capacity for a smartphone. The battery is capable of supporting up to 500 hours of standby time and 6 hours of talk time. There's also a free 5200mAh power bank to support this device.
