Smartphone review: Tecno’s latest spark 5 with five cameras, more angles 

Tecno Mobile’s newly launched Spark 5 smartphone which as the name suggests, is the fifth device under the brand’s Spark mobile line-up. It has given Nigerian mobile phone enthusiasts something new to get excited about with its impressive technology upgrades.

Out of the box, the Spark 5 comes in two colour variations; the Holiday Blue and Star-Studded Orange colour variations, which allow for vivaciously interesting choices to pick from.


Large screen for maximum view

The Spark 5’s screen is impressively massive and elegant. The device comes with a 6.6 Dot in screen with a super immersive display, an industry leading 90.2 percent perfect screen ratio and a screen resolution of 720*1600 HD that will totally transform users’ experience. With this, movie lovers, gamers and even vloggers will enjoy unhindered, unfettered fun in whatever form they choose.


Better picture quality

 Here is the X Factor for TecnoSpark 5. For the first time on a Spark device, the Spark 5 spots a set of Quad AI Rear Cameras. The device is equipped with a 13-megapixel rear AI Quad camera and an 8-megapixel front camera. The device also features six flashlights with four situated around the back camera and a dual front flash that makes the device absolutely fearless of dark light, promising clearer, brighter and more charming pictures with bursting colours no matter how dark the environment is. Users can also enjoy close-up photography with a 4cm macro photography mode that enables them to capture small and minute details. Additionally, the device includes AI HDR technology to increase dynamic range beyond what is captured by the camera’s sensors, allowing users to take photos with a higher dynamic range, fewer noise and clearer details.

Summarily, with Spark 5’s newly upgraded algorithm AI Camera 3.0 and AI scene detection, photos taken by the device will be much more impressive and attractive under any scenario.


Longer lasting battery power 

With Spark 5, you can literally forget about your power bank. The Spark 5 Series packs a punch with a powerful 5,000 mAh battery, so that consumers can run powerful applications and multiple tabs without the need to constantly recharge. The high-performance device that runs on HIOS 6.0 allows for a wide range of user customisation without requiring rooting the mobile device. The operating system is also bundled with utility applications that allow users to free up memory, freeze applications and limit data accessibility to applications. With the device’s dark mode, the phone also gives users more battery time and decreased blue light emission, reducing eye strain.

Other features on the Spark 5 include Bluetooth 5.0 which makes connecting one device to other easier and transferring files faster, and 4G LTE capacity for smooth high-speed browsing.

In terms of storage capacity, the Spark 5 is available for sale in a sizeable 2GB ROM+ 32GB RAM and an expandable memory capacity of up to 128GB through an SD card.

Tecno says it’s targeting trendy students who love fashion with the Spark series, but the phone has quickly risen to fame with young working professionals and middle-aged folks.

The Spark 5 comes in 2 variants; Tecno Spark 5 Air and Tecno Spark 5. Both variants feature Tecno’s HIOS 6.0 built on Android Q, and is available at a price range of 47,000 Naira and 49,000 Naira respectively.

If you are expecting my verdict on the Spark 5, considering its sleek look and feel, camera, battery, high performance and price, I will rate it an 8/10.
