The Tecno Boom J7 boasts of a display profile that is worth a second and may be a third look. We are talking of a 5.0-inches IPS capacitive display with a 1280 x 720 Pixels resolution. The 5.0 Inches display does sit pretty on the Tecno Boom J7, however, the secondary display feature that I truly adore is the 720p HD resolution.
No so long ago, 720p display were a preserve of the mid-rangers but times have now changed and the feature has started trickling down to budget devices. A 720p display is at least steps away from the 1080p Full HD display that everyone desires.

The Tecno Boom J7 is an excellent choice for anyone who appreciates an excellent Smartphone design. The Boom J7 boasts of a minimalistic yet exquisite design. The perfect blend of the two features, gives the smartphone a premium look and feel.

Most would have expected Tecno Mobile to include some stereo speakers on the devices to enhance the audio experience. But, unfortunately, you just have one external speaker. However, Tecno includes some sleek metalicious in-ear earphones to provide some smooth stereo output.
