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

5MP camera and flash are behind the Tecno DroiPad 7D

Another speaker grill is situated at the bottom corner of the phone

SIM tray on this tablet is in an external covered compartment beside the primary camera

To open it, I pried the cover open from a small slit to access the SIM and memory card areas.

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.

Like that fact it can automatically turn into eye protection mode at night as it will filter out a harmful wavelength.
