Looking for a low cost 5-incher? Consider the Tecno M7. It is an upgrade to the Tecno N7. The processor has been beefed-up and the RAM doubled. So, it should run smoothly on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean). Tecno M7 also features a better display and camera. All these improvements you get at the same price as the N7.

The Hardware & Software
Tecno M7 features a 1.3GHz dual-core processor with 1GB RAM, which should run Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) for a decent performance for browsing, gaming and apps.

Display & Camera
Tecno M7 spots a 5.0-inch touch display with a little more pixels added with 480 x 854 px resolution, which should make the M7’s display slightly better than the N7.
