I’ve had the Tecno spark 7P for over 30 days and this is my Tecno spark 7p review I am going to tell you all the things that I found while using this phone. Straight up this is one of the cheapest phones with a 90Hz refresh rate panel. we have the MediaTek helio G70 processor powering this device. it comes with 4 gigs ram and 64 or 128 gigs storage. left to me this is one of the most powerful spark series devices released by Tecno. we have a 16MP main camera here and it is quite okay.
The Spark series by Tecno is where they offer some affordable devices and the Spark 7P comes in at 60,000 NGN. This is very affordable because it comes with a 90Hz refresh rate panel. we will get into every detail in this review and talk about all you need to know. We reviewed the Redmi Note 10 it is also one of the best budget phones of 2021.
Enough of the chit chat let’s get into the review of the Tecno speak 7P starting with the design and build quality.
Tecno Spark 7P Review – All You Need to Know
The design of the Tecno spark 7p is stellar. the color I have with me here is the Magnet Black and other color options include summer mojito, spruce green, and alps blue. The phone is made of plastic and we have a triple Ai camera and a fingerprint scanner at the back. we also have a Tecno Spark branding that gives the device an identity if you grab ahold of it.
The back has a textured finish and it doesn’t pick up fingerprint stains and smudges easily. There is a silicon TPU case inside the box in case you want more grip. The power button and volume rockers are on the right side and they are easily accessible. At the bottom, we have a micro USB port, a headphone jack, and a speaker grille. Up top, we have another microphone.
On the left-hand side, we have the Simcard and SD cardholder. The phone has a 6.8-inch display that we will explore in a bit. We have the dated waterdrop notch style display that houses an 8 MP selfie camera. The phone feels a bit too big for my hands and it’s not suitable for one-hand usage. I love the design at the back because it’s kind of unique but the notch at the front makes the device looks dated.
We have a 6.8-inch IPS LCD on the Tecno spark 7p and it also comes with a 720p resolution. The device has a 90Hz refresh rate and it makes scrolling smoother and faster. We have to appreciate the fact that Tecno is giving us a high refresh rate at this price point. I wish the resolution was 1080 at least it would have been better. Scrolling through apps here is pleasant especially because of the high refresh rate.
Watching content, gaming, and browsing the web with the display is also great. the bezels around the display are noticeable but it doesn’t have much effect during usage. The display is vibrant and contrasts even though it’s an IPS LCD. Under direct sunlight it is usable but you have to increase the brightness. You are going to enjoy the display panel, and for the price, it’s selling at, it shouldn’t be a thing of concern in my opinion.
Software – Tecno Spark 7P Review
The Tecno Spark 7P runs on android 11 and the HiOs 7.6. there have been some minimal design tweaks with this new interface and I must say it feels a bit better. One of my favorite new features is peek proof where you stop others close to you from viewing your display. There Is also a swipe panel by the side where you can quickly access your favorite apps.
The phone comes packed with all the latest Android 11 features. But software update is not guaranteed on this phone I really want tecno to look into this aspect. However, the device came with some bloatware’s and it is usual with any phone running on the Hios Skin. Some of the bloats can be removed or disabled. The notification panel has some changes too and when you pull it down you can enable the peek proof and other new features. I hope with the next software iteration we can see a massive cut down on bloatware.
The Spark 7p is powered by the Helio G70 by MediaTek and the Mali G52 is the GPU. The unit here comes with 4GB Ram and 128 GB storage and that’s the highest configuration. Running everyday tasks like social media and calls is okay and there won’t be any issues. The high refresh rate seems to make using the phone even better. I used it extensively to switch between Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and chrome. Multitasking was swift and most of the time there were no app crashes in the background.
For gaming, it is quite decent but there a few lags here and there while playing graphic demanding games like COD mobile and PubG. The Refresh rates make playing these games even better. It handles games like subway surfer and candy crush even better. I am really impressed with the performance here and I didn’t expect the chipset that was used here. We are used to seeing the Helio A25 and P25 on this type of phone by Tecno.
Camera – Tecno Spark 7P Review
We have a 16MP primary camera here and others include a 2MP depth sensor and a gimmicky AI camera. there is a quad-LED flashlight next to the camera. there is also another dual LED flashlight at the front. the pictures you get with the rear cameras are decent when you have a ton of light. You also get a lot of features to explore in the camera app. The selfie camera is an 8MP camera and it gives some decent pictures as well. The phone shoots 720p, 1080p, and 2K at 30 frames per second the front-facing also shoots videos at 1080p 30 frames per second. Here are more pictures.
The spark 7p has a 5000mAh battery and it can last the whole day even when you turn on the 90Hz refresh rate. It comes with an 18W fast charger that powers the phone from zero to a hundred in almost two hours. Battery life is amazing here and no matter how you handle the device the battery would last a whole day.
Conclusion Tecno Spark 7p Review
The spark 7p is a decent phone for people under a tight budget. For the price of 60,000 naira it is one of the devices I would recommend. It has a decent chipset and battery life while the 90Hz refresh rate is the icing on the cake. I wish tecno would continue in this path with their spark series. Because what we have here is far from the norm. if there is anything that was not clear to you use the comments below to ask them.
