  11. I like your products. Pls how much is the current price for tecno phantom z & how do I get it. I’m residing at Ogoja, Cross River State.

  12. I have had it for almost one year and it has a myriad of issues which carlcare cannot solve, it is just a useless substandard phone.

  13. I want to register my disappointment with Tecno customer care service and the Tecno phone (phantom z) I acquired this phone in August 2014 from a shop in Nairobi for Ksh 33,500.00, the first six months everything was perfect, suddenly there was a problem with the clarity of the loud speaker but since I live far away from Nairobi I had to live with it, after sometime the phone could not connect to the computer it kept indicating that the device is faulty, then around April this year the touch screen started operating itself in most cases when texting it closes the text and open another application, when browsing the problem get even worse, when you open a page it close it. I took the phone to their carlcare in Nairobi and all I wanted was the self-operating issue and the issue of connecting to the PC to be sorted, the rest I could live with, after almost 2 months and 4 trips to Nairobi, being taken in circles and a ton of lies I was finally told that the phone was ready for collection. Due to distance I had to look for someone who was going to Nairobi to collect it for me. The most disgusting things is that when I received the phone the slot that hold the lines was missing, and a third of the screws that fix the mother board were missing, I had to make another trip to Nairobi to collect them whereby I had to wait for 5 hrs to be given what was rightfully mine, for the missing screws the lady there downplayed their absence and the phone is useless because it cannot detect any network. My word of advice to those who value their hard earned cash, don’t buy any tecno phone, it is the most substandard phone I have ever seen. If you happen to be foolish like me and buy one, once it has issues (which I can promise you will APPEAR in less than 6 months) don’t bother taking it to their carlcare centre, it will be rendered useless and you will have wasted your time and money, their technicians are the most incompetent you will ever meet ( how could they forgot to screw back the screws? If they could not sort out my phone they should at least have returned it the way it was) The ladies at the front desk will tell you some beautiful lies that will make you spend a whole day there waiting for non-existence service. To Tecno, you can pack your WHATEVER and go back to where you came from, we need service providers who are competent & value their customers.

  14. My A7 cant play some apps or open them, i went to carlcare inthe Nairobi cbd bt they couldnt help, wat can b wrong with my device

    • Don’t believe the hype, I have had this phone for almost one year now, to the outside it still looks new, but the touch screen has now been operating itself, it cannot connect to the PC, for it to charge I must switch it off, it erratically detect the network, the switching on button is not working, the clarity of the loud speaker has since disappeared. It is just a substandard phone buy it at your own risk because the carlcare center here have been unable to sort any of the issue mentioned above.

  26. The phone is definitely superior in regard to memory and camera compared to other tecnos. However its connectivity for communication flow is poor. It disconnects despite being service boosters. this experience frustrates me whether through texting or audio calls. i didn’t experience this with R7

  31. Tecno phantom Z has improved but nowhere near Samsung S5 or Nokia. However, Tecno has come a long way. Let them upgrade instead of repeating their old products in new designs.

  33. This phone is the most useless phone I’ve ever used. Guys don’t be deceived! I was impressed by what I read about the phone and I rushed to buy it. Some days the BBM app on the phone will go out of service and you won’t be able to send or receive bbm messages. When your bbm contacts update their status you may not see it for more than 24hours. Sometimes you may be using an app and it will just close abruptly. At other times the apps will be fluctuating, closing and opening endlessly without your control. This imitation phone will give you nothing but a frustrating experience.

  34. Wow! The Phantom Z is simply amazing. Quite apart from beauty, it’s just superb, I mean in everything. It more than just a phone. It’s a computer. It’s pictures,touch, sound (employing d Dolby technology), and how it functions in general is just undescribable on this platform. I ve no regrets for acquiring it. It fits into even more than d reasons for which I acquired. The specs are high. Phantom Z ll rub shoulder with most smart phones produced by other telephone giants.
    I salute techno mobile.

    The Phantom Z runs /><p class=The Phantom Z runs on the Android 4.4 Kitkat platform providing cutting edge features, geared towards optimising user experiences and positioned to compete against other comparable smartphones in the market/FILE
    NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 25 – Tecno Mobile a brand under Transsion Holdings, has launched the highly anticipated Phantom Z device.
    The Phantom Z runs on the Android 4.4 Kitkat platform providing cutting edge features, geared towards optimising user experiences and positioned to compete against other comparable smartphones in the market.

    The device features an array of features including a 7.9mm unibody design; a 2GB RAM that can store memory of up to 32GB and a 3030mAH battery.

    Its 5.2 inch scrachproof screen makes use of the latest Amoled screen technology to ensure high pixel density and high contrast ratio.

    Transsion Holdings President, George Zhu who spoke during the launch of the Phantom Z says the move is aimed at deepening its mobile phone penetration in East Africa.

    “While in the process of deepening our mobile phone penetration in East Africa, we have developed a dedicated focus on driving smartphone adoption to facilitate the global information age economy,” Zhu said.

    On his part Information communication and Technology (ICT) Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i says Phantom Z’s entry to the market is a strong indicator that the sector is an exciting destination for new investors who are keen to exploit the economic potential of the Kenyan Market.

    “The lion’s share of Kenya’s internet subscribers consume data through their mobile phones, techno mobile has played a role in enabling Kenyans access the internet through affordable hand held devices,” Matiang’i said.

    Techno is present in 18 African countries with the biggest market being Nigeria which they are the number one brand.
