The Tecno mobile smartphone company have proven themselves to be one of the most loved android mobile smartphone brand in Nigeria due to the range of numerous cheap/affordable smartphones they’ve been getting into the mobile market.

Today, I decided to do a little comparison between 3 loved and cheap tecno android phones you must probably come in contact with. They are the Tecno N7, Tecno Q1 and the Tecno N3.  I would compare the said smartphones side bar side base on their display, cameras, memory and OS information e.t.c.

  1. Hmmmm, now u succeed in getting me confused the more… Cn u compare between D5 and n3 pls.. I would like to get one of them later.

  2. pls Q1 android OS is 4.0 not 2.5.3
    i still prefer Q1 to N7, well N7 has a larger screen dan d former. Dats d only difference. Q1 has keypads n touch screen (as Bold 5) unlike N7, if d screen crashes it becomes useless.

  3. pls Q1 android OS is 4.0 not 2.5.3
    i still prefer Q1 to N7, well N7 has a larger screen dan d former. Dats d only difference. Q1 has keypads n touch screen (as Bold 5) unlike N7, if d screen crashes it becomes useless.

  4. There is no phone without disadvantages, I am currently using techno F7 phantom… the phone is so coollll and best ever I have seen and could stand Samsung galaxy S3 but the techno suck battery like mad…..its a big turn down to me.

  5. N7 would b it for me, xcept dat it doesnt allow java apps..what happens to my whatsapp…and its battery life wen playin music is not as cool as d others

  6. the admin,that posted this is lying..for that of tecno Q1 the android it has is 4.0 ice cream sandwich with both screentouch and Qwerty keyboard.with multi apps….tecno Q1 is not a gingerbread

  7. Pls whats d different bteen gingerbread and ice cream sandwich. Pls i’m new to these words can somebody help me out.

  8. rooting of android devices is all about and its advantage, Rooting your device means obtaining superuser rights and permissions to your Android’s software. With these elevated user privileges, you gain the ability to load custom software (ROM’s), install custom themes, increase performance, increase battery life, and the ability to install software that would otherwise cost extra money (ex: WiFi tethering).
