TECNO Spark 2 Review – Specs, Features and Price

Just immediately after the release of the Pouvoir, TECNO has decided to release yet another one called the Tecno Spark 2.

The Tecno Spark 2 was launched on the 8th of June 2018, the smartphone is really impressive and comes with a lot of exciting features. Though the features of the Spark 2 may not be out of this world, it has been really modified than the last year’s own. So, if you are still contemplating which of the smartphone from the Spark series to use, you need to go through this full review before drawing your conclusion.

Design

The Spark 2 comes with a simple but unique design that is too well constructed for its price. Just like last year’s Spark K9, the Tecno Spark 2 comes in with a screen size of 6.0 inches and has an 18:9 screen that is also capped at 720p. The Tecno Spark 2 comes with a  Face ID.

This device still retains the traditional positions of things, the power and volume buttons are on the left hand. Then, on the left-hand side of this device still find the SIM card tray.

The Tecno Spark 2 back did not change. You still see the primary camera at the back, the LED flash, the fingerprint sensor, loudspeaker, and the company’s logo. The Tecno Spark 2 uses a dual SIM which can still double as a MicroSD card slot.

This device is very light weighted and comes in with a body dimension of 159.4mm for height, 76.2mm for width and 7.8mm for thickness. This device also comes in different color varieties and they are Champagne Gold, City Blue, Midnight Black.

Camera

On the back of the Tecno Spark 2, you will sport the 13MP camera just like we have on the K9. The primary camera also comes with a LED flash that usually flashes when the device rings.

At the front of the Tecno Spark 2, you will find an 8MP selfie camera that is much better than the 5MP on the Spark K9. Just like the other Spark series, the Tecno Spark 2 selfie camera also comes with a LED flash for better shots and videos in low light condition.

Performance

The Tecno Spark 2 uses the current Android Operating System, Android 8.1 Go edition which is specially optimized in other to make this smartphone perform smoothly and compete with high-end smartphones.

This device is powered by a MediaTek MT6737M 32-bit quad core processor. The processor is assisted by a 1GB RAM which we think is poor, though a pro version is expected to be released soon with a 2GB RAM. The smartphone also has a 16GB internal memory.

Battery

Tecno Spark 2 is powered by a huge 3500mAh battery life that is capable of taking you for 2 days. We noticed that the incredible power of this device is as a result of the Android Go it uses.

The Android Go due to its system tweaks and lite apps is light on system resources, which result in a less battery drainage for running apps.

Other Features

  • 3.5mm Jack ~ Yes,
  • Expandable storage ~ Yes,
  • Colors ~ Champagne Gold, City Blue, Midnight Black.

The Tecno Spark 2 arrives with a price tag of NGN36,200 in Nigeria, which is equivalent to Ksh 11,299 (Kenyan currency) and finally (100 USD). This device is already available in most offline markets.

Verdict

When my team and I first went through the Tecno Spark 2, I was surprised, because this device performed really well in most aspect, far from what we had expected, though there is still room for improvement on few other aspects.
