Want a big screen at an affordable price? The Tecno F7 (a.k.a the Phantom A) is worth considering. Tecno F7 is the new flagship of the Chinese manufacturer, replacing the Tecno N7 from the top spot. Like the N7, the Tecno F7 is a 5-incher but the display is more brilliant and the design sleeker. Plus it runs on Jelly Bean (Android 4.1.1) and still offers Dual-SIM. Tecno Phantom 8 is the latest member of the Phantom series.
Where to Buy Tecno Phones
The Hardware & Software
Tecno F7 is powered by a 1GHz dual-core processor, just like the N7. However, the on-board RAM has been doubled to 1GB, which should offer some noticeable performance improvement. Performance is further boosted by a separate graphics processor. The Tecno Phantom comes in a sleek design (just 9.1 mm thick) and offers Android 4.1.1.
Tecno F7 comes pre-loaded with Facebook, Twitter, and Asphalt 6 game with loads of Google Apps like GMail, Google+, Google Talk, YouTube and over 600,000 apps available for download at the Google Play Store, which by the way also comes pre-installed in the device.
Display & Camera
Tecno F7 offers a way better display than the N7. Both phones are 5-inchers, but the Phamtom A packs more pixels offering a more brilliant view with a half HD resolution (720 x 1280 pixels). No glass protedtion is offered. Tecno F7 comes with an 8 megapixels camera, with LED flash. A front-facing 1.2 MP camera for videocalling is also provided.
Price & Availability
Tecno F7 is available in Nigeria and the price ranges from N34,000 to N38,500 depending on your location in Nigeria. You can buy online or at a phone store near you.
