Tecno K7 Review:

Design & Body:

The Tecno K7 exhibits a design reminiscent of the Apple iPhone 7 Plus and the OnePlus 5, with sleek bezels and a premium look. The on-screen navigation buttons, positioned below the 5.5-inch HD IPS display, enhance the overall aesthetic. The rear, crafted from plastic with a metallic appearance, houses the 13MP main camera, LED flashlight, fingerprint scanner, and the Tecno logo. The available color variants include Phantom Black, Metallic Red, Champagne Gold, and Coral Blue.


The 5.5-inch HD IPS display with a resolution of 720 x 1080 pixels delivers vibrant colors and acceptable contrast. With a pixel density of 267 ppi, the Tecno K7’s display performs well for its price range. The use of 2.5D curved glass adds a layer of protection against scratches, making it a practical choice for everyday use.


Equipped with a non-removable 3,000mAh battery, the Tecno K7 offers decent battery life, particularly for moderate users. However, the absence of fast charging technology results in a longer charging time, approximately 3–4 hours from 0 to 100 percent. Despite this drawback, the phone’s power management ensures reliable performance throughout the day.


The Tecno K7’s camera setup shines in the midrange category. The 13MP rear camera features face detection, autofocus, and HDR capabilities, delivering satisfactory results. The 5MP selfie camera, accompanied by an LED flashlight, captures bright images. While the rear camera performs well, there is room for improvement to enhance image quality.


Powered by the MediaTek MT6580 chipset clocked at 1.3GHz and supported by 1GB or 2GB of RAM, the Tecno K7 handles everyday tasks with ease. The choice between the two variants influences gaming performance, with the 2GB version offering smoother gameplay.

Other Features:

A standout feature of the Tecno K7 is its inclusion of a fingerprint scanner, accommodating up to 5 fingers. Beyond security, the scanner enables call control and online payment functionality.


the Tecno Spark K7 presents a compelling option in the midrange smartphone category. With its affordable price, responsive fingerprint scanner, premium build quality, and commendable selfie camera, the Tecno K7 proves to be a fantastic choice for budget-conscious consumers. While improvements in the battery charging speed and rear camera quality could elevate the user experience, the Tecno K7 remains a reliable and pocket-friendly device suitable for one-handed use.
