    For heaven’s sakes, the r7 isn’t in the class of the Gs3 talk less of the GS5. Techno isn’t on the world map of smart phone producers. They simply wait for samsung to produce a phone and then make a cheap imitation. No phone with such credentials has the right to be described as “a beast of a phone”.

    • Hi Benjamin,

      I agree with you, Tecno Mobile has a tendency of introducing cheaper imitations of their flagship devices. Samsung is a fairly mature Smartphone brands and has mastered the art of creating great handsets and Tecno Mobile will take some time before it achieves a similar status.

      Kenyans love fine handsets, and everyone would love to own a Galaxy S5 or an HTC M8. However, the cost of those handsets is prohibitive and thus remain exclusive to a few .

      You have to admit that the Tecno R7 is a fine Smartphone. The R7 is therefore, perfect for buyers who want a feel of flagship grade features while on a budget.

    @benjamin, Tenco R7 beats Galaxy note 2 and galaxy s3 in performance benchmarks. And it ties with galaxy s4 …… so, its worthy of mention!
