Created date: 12/10/2018, 17:15:08, Updated date: 04/15/2020, 17:57:54

What are the strengths of the TECNO Spark 2? We explain its advantages and disadvantages when compared to other smartphone. Even if you are not used to choosing between different smartphone, you'll learn to make the decision of whether or not the TECNO Spark 2 is right for you.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the TECNO Spark 2

The camera function of TECNO Spark 2

The TECNO Spark 2 has a 13 MP main camera that lets you take photos and videos in a quite high resolution. You may be a little dissatisfied with it in some situations, for example when you want to capture scenery in very high resolution or print out beautiful photos, but this should not be an issue you run into very often.

The TECNO Spark 2 comes with a 8 MP pixel camera, which is a standard level. It's perfectly fine for selfies, but may be not as satisfying if you wish to take photos of large numbers of people, or make printouts.

The battery performance of TECNO Spark 2

The TECNO Spark 2 has a relatively large battery with 3500mAh. The TECNO Spark 2 has a good battery life compared to other smartphones. You won't feel stressed even if you spend all day surfing the web or on Twitter and you can also watch videos or play games on the go without having to worry too much about the battery. If you watch videos or play games for too long, however, you might want to watch your battery a bit.

TECNO Spark 2's size

The TECNO Spark 2 is 3inches (76.2mm) wide, 6.3inches (159.4mm) tall, and 0.31inches (7.8mm) thick. I can just barely use it with one hand, so it may feel big to some people. In the case of the TECNO Spark 2, it weighs about 6.2oz (175g). It feels a little heavy when held with one hand. It may tire your hand out if you operate it for too long a time.

In giving an overall rating to the TECNO Spark 2, while it may be slightly difficult to hold, it shouldn't be much of a problem when considering its general strengths and weaknesses.

TECNO Spark 2's screen

The TECNO Spark 2 has a 6 inch screen. The smartphone has a large, impressive screen, which allows you to enjoy photos and videos to the fullest. It is also very good for writing business documents and doing other work.

The resolution of the TECNO Spark 2's screen is pretty much standard. It shouldn't be a problem for normal use, but it might prove to be a bit dissatisfying for those who wish to better enjoy their photos, videos, or games.

The CPU performance of TECNO Spark 2

The TECNO Spark 2 has a run-of-the-mill processing power of 1.3GHz×4(Quad core), so while you'll be able to play 2D games with ease, it's a little lacking for 3D games. Outside of games, the phone runs most things quite smoothly, but certain apps can cause a bit of slowdown.

The TECNO Spark 2 has 2GB of RAM, so it has plenty of space. In rare cases this amount of RAM might not be sufficient, but there shouldn't be too much stress on the machine with this amount.

The overall operational speed of the TECNO Spark 2 rates as a mid-range smartphone. While you will probably not experience much sluggishness or lag with normal use, we recommend a phone at least one tier higher if you want to enjoy games or videos.

TECNO Spark 2's storage capacity

The TECNO Spark 2 has 16GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

Since the TECNO Spark 2 is compatible with SD cards, you'll be able to easily expand your storage capacity; you won't need to worry about how much internal space it has.

Overall assessment of TECNO Spark 2

The TECNO Spark 2 is a relatively high-performance smartphone. If you plan to use it as your main smartphone, you may find it slightly inconvenient, but within tolerable limits.
