Exactly on the 24th of March, 2013 that is over 35 days ago, Mymobnet! blog was the first to report on the entire world wide web that Tecno Mobile has something big in store for us, which shall be called the Tecno F7. See our initial post on the F7 here.
The review got almost a 6,000 read or views so far and
met no little controversy at the onset. I was almost accused of spreading a false rumour just to boost traffic to my site. But I was happy at same time to give our readers the would-be breaking news before time. Actually I am much connected with Tecno officials that provide me with gists before time. After the publication of that post, I got comments like this:
Now, Tecno F7 Android phone or Tecno Innovation Phantom A1 is here and no rumour! Unfortunately, Tecno dropped some of the features it was originally meant to come with and added some more or less great features!
This Tecno Innovation Phantom A1 without doubts beats the Tecno n7 Android device. The BIG question we are asking is if it will fairly compete with or beat the amazing Gionee Dream D1 that has been in the market for some time now.
Ok, we are not starting our spec review on a bad note because the F7 is a great device. Anyway, this Tecno Innovation Phantom A1 is loaded with a not old Android 4.0 ICS. But wait, why not a Jelly Bean, like other new great devices? Anyway the ICS should make the phone faster considering its other features, so its not a bad idea but great for this great brand new phone! We learnt that the new shipments will load a 4.1 jelly Bean OS.
**We have now confirmed from Tecno themselves that all the phone will come with a 4.1 Jelly Bean OS!
Hardware and design:
The design of Tecno Innovation Phantom A1 is great! The idea behind these Chinese Android phones is to let you own expensive looking devices at a cheaper rate and great features! So don’t be surprised when someone mistakes your F7 for a Samsung Galaxy S4! The curved edges of Tecno Innovation Phantom A1 will let the phone, though bulky, to easily slide into your jean pocket.
Display and resolution:
The display and resolution of this Android phone from Tecno is about the coolest thing we found in this phone here at Mymobnet! Lab. Samsung has taught us that a 5 inch screen phone is cool. The F7 has no less but a 5’’ like the Tecno n7. Now the greatest thing here is the Phantom A1’s High Definition resolution which by far outshines that of Tecno n7 and provides a clearer and sharper picture with higher ppi. The Tecno Innovation Phantom A1’s resolution is 720 X 1280 pixels compared with the poor 480 X 800 pixels of n7.
Speed and Performance:
The speed of the Tecno Innovation Phantom A1 is the best we can get on the phone at its price range. The generous Tecno Mobile loads this great phone with a 1GHz processor duo core CPU and a 1GB RAM. Compare this with the 512MB Ram of the n7. So you don’t have problem with this fast phone.
It’s no news again. It comes with a 3G and WIFI (hotspot) support. Why not? J
The battery life of the F7 is not bad. It can last up to 24 hours when internet is used. Compare it with other 2100mAh batteries.
