The Tecno DroiPad 7D is a rectangular smartphone like most regular tablets. I peel off the multi-colored temporary scratch protector covering the screen. Tecno Droidpad 7D 15 of 27

First Impressions

The Tecno PhonePad 7D is the first tablet I have seen in a long time and the specs are not looking too impressive, but if I have learnt anything, the specifications of a smartphone do not always equal performance.

With this big boy, I feel different things. Physically and specification wise, I am not very impressed. But if its predecessors are anything to go by, the DroiPad 7D may actually be a good device for its level.

There is no way to know for sure until I do a comprehensive test and  review in a few days.
