Tecno D7 gives you a massive 5.5-inch display at an affordable price. Looking at the raw specs, it is more or less like the Tecno M7 with a larger display, bigger battery, but a lower 5 megapixel camera with autofocus. Tecno D7 is for consumers who fancy a large display (phablet), but do not mind missing out on some memory intensive apps like some power games as the device comes with 512MB RAM.
The Hardware & Software
Like the M7, Tecno D7 features a 1.3GHz dual-core processor with Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean), but offers just 512MB RAM compared to the 1GB RAM in the M7. This should offer decent performance for browsing, gaming, messaging, and apps. However, if you are a hard core gamer, the Tecno D7 may struggle with some games and will not be able to run some at all.
Tecno D7 comes pre-loaded with Facebook, Opera Mini, GameLoft (3+1), Whatsapp, PalmChat, Flash with loads of Google Apps like GMail, Google+, Google Talk, YouTube. Yes, it is not pre-loaded with BBM, but BBM is one of the over 600,000 apps available for download at the Google Play Store.
Display & Camera
Tecno D7 spots a 5.5-inch touch display with 480 x 854 pixels resolution. It has a rear 5 megapixels camera with flash and autofocus with a 1.3 megapixels front facing camera for video calling.
Price & Availability
Tecno D7 is available in Nigeria and the price ranges from N25,000 to N30,500 depending on your location in Nigeria. You can buy online or at a phone store near you.
