TECNO Spark's features, performance, reviews

TECNO Spark's size

The TECNO Spark has a width of 3.00787inches (76.4mm), a length of 6.0236inches (153mm), and a thickness of 0.31inches (7.9mm). It might be possible to operate it with one hand, but depending on the person it might feel big. In addition, the weight of the TECNO Spark is about 6.0oz (169g). You can feel some weight when holding it in one hand. You might feel tired if you operate it for a long time.

Assessing the overall ease of holding the TECNO Spark, it has some difficulties but if you use it based on its strengths and weaknesses it will not cause many issues.

TECNO Spark's screen

TECNO Spark has a 5.5 inch display. It is fairly large and has a good presence. Photos, videos, and games will really enjoy this screen estate. It is also suited for productivity use such as creating a business document.

TECNO Spark has a mid-range screen. It is OK for normal use, but if you want to enjoy photos, videos, or games at their best, you may feel dissatisfied.

TECNO Spark's CPU specs

With the 1.3GHz×4(Quad core) for processing power, the TECNO Spark has ordinary performance. 2D games can be played smoothly but with 3D games power is a little lacking. It is fine for uses other than gaming although there are some apps where operation feels heavy.

With 2GB of RAM, the TECNO Spark has a sufficient amount. Very occasional cases of insufficient RAM do occur, but with this sort of amount of RAM, it will rarely be the cause of feeling any stress.

Evaluating the overall speed of operation of the TECNO Spark, it is a mid-range smartphone, and in everyday use operation doesn't feel very jumpy or jerky, but to enjoy games, movies and the like a grade higher smartphone is recommended.

TECNO Spark's storage size

The data storage capacity of the TECNO Spark is 16GB, and while it is enough for taking photos, it might feel insufficient for those who often shoot videos or who install many games.

The TECNO Spark is compatible with SD cards, so it is possible to increase the capacity easily. Therefore, you probably do not need to be concerned with the storage capacity.

TECNO Spark's camera specs

TECNO Spark has a 13 MP main camera, which can take very high-resolution photos and videos. While you might feel a little dissatisfied when you need better resolution for landscape photography or want to print high-definition photographs, you will be satisfied most of the time.

Also, TECNO Spark has an 5 MP front camera, which is an average figure for a smartphone camera. It is good enough for taking selfies, but you may be a little dissatisfied when you need to take a group photo or print your photos.

TECNO Spark's battery performance

The battery performance of the TECNO Spark is 3000mAh, so it has a relatively large capacity. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the TECNO Spark is good. At this amount, you will not feel stressed even if you are on the internet and Twitter for a long time. Even when playing a game or watching a movie on the go, you can do so comfortably without needing to be conscious of the battery. However, some caution is necessary when watching movies or playing games for too long.

TECNO Spark's general rating

The TECNO Spark is a relatively capable smartphone. If used as the main smartphone, it may be somewhat inconvenient for everyday use, but it is at a generally acceptable level.
