Tecno 7C Review

Design

  • Good metal design.
  • The power button and volume control buttons are on the right side of the tablet.
  • The headphones and USB slots are on the top side.
  • The tablet’s back cover is manually removable. Underneath it, you will find the battery and slots for dual SIM cards and a memory card.
  • The speakers are on the tablet’s bottom side.

User experience

  • The design is conventional. However, it provides the user with easy control over the device and large display to read and use apps.  
  • The device is made of aluminum, which gives it strength and resistance against shocks and scratches.

 

Screen

  • The screen is 7.0 inches.
  • 1024 × 600 pixels quality.
  • Pixel density is 169 ppi.

User experience

The screen presents convenient resolution compared to its size. However, the player will have little fun playing advanced-graphics games, as the screen will fail to display it with satisfactory quality.

 

Performance

  • The device runs Android Lollipop operating system.
  • 1.3 GHz quad-core,.
  • Mali-400 GPU graphics card.
  • 1 GB RAM.
  • 16 GB internal storage — expandable to 32 GB in case of memory card usage.

User experience

The device’s performance when multitasking is fair. The user will, however, experience lagging performance and failure to process advanced-graphics games, as its image processing is weak and it would make the device heat up.

The limited internal storage does not fit with a device targeting family use, since it will not enable everybody to download their favorite apps, pictures, and files. You will find yourself forced to use a memory card.

 

Camera

  • Two rear cameras of 2 MP quality with a flash.
  • Front-facing camera of quality 2 MP, also supported with a flash.

User experience

The photography experience is below average, as it produces low-quality pictures and unclear details. However, in case of children’s use, it might be somewhat satisfactory.

 

Battery

  • 3000 mAh battery capacity.
  • The battery is non-removable.

 

User experience

The battery is considered one of the failures of the device, as its low capacity (3000 mAh) will force the user to recharge it at least once to last till the end of the day. The battery being non-removable might prove inconvenient to some, as well.
