Tecno Spark K7 is one of Tecno’s new smart devices that debuted the Tecno Spark series; the other phones in the series include Tecno Spark K8 and Tecno Spark K9. The phone is a medium-range a smart device with a 5.50-inch screen and a fingerprint scanner well positioned on the back of the smartphone.
Tecno Spark K7 Review
The Tecno Spark K7, which is also called Tecno Spark, comes with a 5.50-inch screen. Its screen, which is a liquid crystal display (LCD) switching plane (IPS), has an impressive resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. Large monitors are known to consume a lot of energy; this display is different in that it saves energy.
Spark K7 runs the Android 7.0 Nougat (OS) operating system as its primary software. Although many new devices run the Android 8.0 operating system, this does not make the Spark K7 useless to buy.
The system of active electronic components in the Tecno Spark K7 system is promoted by a MediaTek chipset. The MediaTek chipset that defends the system is a quad-core chipset and the chipset’s four processors collaboratively help to complete tasks quickly. In addition, the processors in this chipset have a common processing speed of 1.30 GHz.
A Tecno Spark K7 build may come with 1 GB random access memory or 2 GB RAM. The 1 GB RAM will be suitable for a typical medium-range smartphone user. However, users who do not want a 1 GB RAM device can always opt for the 2 GB RAM variant of this smartphone. A user using the device’s 2 GB RAM variant will have a great smartphone experience.
The Tecno Spark K7 comes with 16 GB flash storage as internal storage. When a new build of Spark K7 is purchased, the total free space will be much less than 16 GB, as the operating system (OS), pre-installed applications and some files take up some storage space. The K7 supports the expansion of storage space with the help of a micro SD card. Smart device storage can be expanded up to 32 GB. Attempting to expand the device beyond 32 GB may cause the phone to malfunction.
The Tecno Spark K7 has two cameras, a 5 MP camera as the front camera and a 13 MP camera as the phone’s rear camera. The selfie camera of this phone has many improvements that improve the quality of the photos taken by the phone. The rear camera also has enhancements, some of which include geotagging, face detection and HDR.
The smartphone is not a 4G LTE device, but it does support second-generation (2G) and third-generation (3G) mobile network technologies. 4G LTE is undoubtedly a great technology, however, its absence in this smart device makes the phone useless to buy. A medium-range a smartphone user is likely to happily use the phone without 4G LTE support.
The Tecno Spark K7’s active electronic component system is powered by a 3000 mAh battery. In addition to the fact that the battery is quite powerful, its energy is also used efficiently by the hardware presented in the device. The K7 comes with a quick charge system that helps you charge this 3000 mAh battery in less than two and a half hours.

Appearance and display
The Tecno Spark K7, which is a very attractive smartphone, measures (153 x 76.4 x 7.9) mm, with 153 mm in height, 76.4 mm in width and 7.9 mm in thickness. As can be seen from the thickness measurement, the K7 is a slim device. In addition, the phone has a lightweight of 102 grams.
The phone was designed by one of Tecno’s best design teams. The K7 has a plastic body and is available in only four colors, namely: ghost black, metallic red, champagne gold and coral blue. Among these colors, champagne gold is the least preferred.
A 5.5-inch liquid crystal display (LCD) is presented by this smartphone, and this is a very interesting feature, as the size of a large screen usually gives rise to greater experience with the smartphone. The device does not just come with a standard 5.5 inch LCD screen but with a standard resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels.
The 720 x 1280 pixel screen, presented by Tecno Spark K7, provides the smart device with a cool pixel density that reads 267 pixels per inch (ppi). With this pixel density, the smart device provides standard graphics. The Spark K7 screen supports more than 16 million colors.
Connectivity and OS
Tecno Spark K7 has several connection-oriented technologies. The device has all generations of mobile network technologies, except the first and fourth generations. The device will work with 2G and 3G networks of all cellular operators in the country. However, using these networks will require a nano-SIM card.
In addition to mobile network technologies, Tecno Spark K7 has support for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. With support for Wi-Fi technology, a user of this device can make use of fast Internet connections. Bluetooth technology helps to facilitate connectivity of the device with peripherals such as speakers, external keyboard and the like.
Spark K7 runs the Android 7.0 Nougat operating system as its main software. However, the smartphone runs a modified version of the Android 7.0 Nougat operating system, not the standard version of the operating system. The Android Nougat operating system is a very interesting operating system, more secure than all older versions of the Android operating system.
The Android platform is a very rich platform; the platform is rich in applications and games. An Android user has many applications available to them, compared to users on other platforms. Although security has been the main criticism of Android, it is possible to use the platform without problems, as long as the user takes the necessary precautions.
Chipset and RAM
The chipset that sponsors the Tecno Spark K7 system is the MediaTek chipset, popular in the mobile industry. The chipset is popular due to its excellence in many ways. The chipset is widely used by Tecno, Infinix and many other phone manufacturers, including those that are not based in China.
This chipset that defends the Tecno Spark K7 system is a quad-core chipset. Its four cores work together to complete tasks in a shorter time frame. All processors in this chipset have a common processing speed of 1.30 GHz. A processing speed of 1.30 GHz is undoubtedly a fair speed for a medium-range device.
A 1 GB random access memory (RAM) is used primarily by the K7 chipset, as the main memory. The 1 GB RAM displayed on the device is a high-speed RAM. Without a high-speed RAM being featured on the Tecno Spark K7, the speed of your chipset will not be fully utilized. This is because slow RAM keeps processors waiting longer than they should.
It is possible to get a version of Tecno Spark K7 that comes with 2 GB of RAM. For some smart device users, 1 GB RAM is very good for them, while some smartphone users consider 1 GB RAM to be inadequate. Users who consider a 1 GB RAM to be inappropriate can always opt for the 2 GB RAM variant of the smartphone.
Cameras and sensors
The Tecno Spark K7 comes with two cameras, one on the back of the smartphone and one on the front of the phone. A 5 MP camera with many improvements acts as the phone’s selfie camera. Incredible images are produced with the help of these enhancements and the camera. Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR and panorama are some enhancements presented by the selfie camera, to name a few.
A 13 MP camera sits right on the back of the smartphone and acts as the main camera for this smartphone. The 13 MP camera is also greatly improved. Some of its improvements include geotagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, panorama and LED flash.
The Tecno Spark K7 comes with many sensors, one of which is a fingerprint scanner. With the help of this fingerprint scanner, a smartphone user can unlock his device more easily. As the fingerprint scanner has its cons, it should not be considered the best security system for a smartphone.
The other sensors featured in Spark K7 helps to expand the capabilities of the smart device. Some of these other sensors are an accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor and compass. The smartphone can know your acceleration and position in space, all with the help of the accelerometer. In addition, the proximity sensor lets the device know how close it is to a surface.
Storage and energy
The Tecno Spark K7 uses flash storage as its internal storage device. Flash storage has a capacity of 16 GB, but the total free space will be less than that. The operating system, pre-installed applications, and some files are responsible for why the total free space on the device will be less than 16 GB.
The storage space of this device can always be expanded if needed. The expansion of the storage space can be done with the help of a micro SD card. It is important that any micro SD card used for expansion has no more than 32 GB of capacity. Using a micro SD card with more than 32 GB can cause the smartphone to malfunction.
The power of the entire Tecno Spark K7 system is a Li-Po battery, and this battery has a large capacity of 3000 mAh. The battery cannot be removed, but it can be replaced if it is damaged.
