Gfive Tango 7 Video Review
The Gfive Tango 7 Review
Hello everyone, We are back today with a new review after a long break. However we shall try to do more reviews now as there are a lot of new phones and models available.
Gfive Tango 7 comes with a new processor from mediaTek the MTK M6591 1.6 Ghz Hexa Core processor (6 cores) and a Mali450 MP GPU all accompanied by a 2GB Ram. The phone has a 16 gb built-in memory. The main feature of the camera is its 13 MP Swivel Camera , which is a great feature for selfies. The phone also has a backpanel touch pad , which is a new feature and we havent seen this before. The back panel touch pad can be used as a shutter key and browser the screens on the phone.
Gfive Design and build quality is basically a copy of Oppo N1 and looks like Gfive is following Qmobile’s philosophy this time by rebranding chinese phones. The tango 7 is a rebranded version of iNew V8.
Gfive also added a new accessory in the box of Tango 7 , a wireless camera shutter key , It connects via bluetooth to the phone and you can use it to take pictures without having to worry about pressing a button on the phone. So if you have a selfie stick , you can take pictures wirelessly without ever touching the phone . Lets look at the video review of Gfive Tango 7.

Build Quality of the Gfive Tango 7
Material Used and Design
So Although we know that Gfive Tango 7 takes its design from Oppo N1 , but it has a removable backside. The body is all plastic but it definitely doesnt feel like a cheap phone. The body has a very premium feeling . There is a thin metal strip that surrounds the body and gives a feeling of strong build quality.
Screen and Display:
Gfive Tango 7 has a 720p HD screen , Although now we are getting into an era of 2K display and we would have wanted a 1080p display atleast on the device but still 720p display on Tango 7 performs pretty well. The sunlight visibility is very good and because of IPS display , the viewing angles are pretty good and OGS display adds the sharpness in colors.

Gfive has a history of having bad phone cameras ( with the exception of few ) . However Tango 7’s main feature is its swivel camera , which can rotate at approc 207 degrees. Tango 7 is definitely the best camera phone we have seen from gfive up till now. The Swivel effect on the camera is ideal for the selfie lovers , coupled with the wireless remote camera shutter which comes in the box.
The HDR mode in camera produces very good colors in the photos and the macro shots also produce a very smooth bokeh effect. Overall we are quite satisfied with the camera and compared to 2 or 5 mega pixel cameras for selfies , you get a full 13 MP camera even for selfies which is a good plus point.
Below are some camera samples from Gfive Tango 7.
