Happy birthday to the author of geniusspecs

Tecno Spark 5 the successor of the spark 4 is available in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and throughout Africa. The launch price of this device was not be more than that of it predecessor, but due to the shipping fees and economic crises, All Smartphones price skyrocketed, which makes the spark 5 vulnerable. But you should know that the features of this phone might actually cause you a change of mind and not just that, but also drive you to purchase it.

Design: At first impression you get attracted by the sweet colour gradient of the rear, which could be Spark Orange( I love this one) or Ice Jadeite or Vacation Blue or Misty Grey and you might wonder what the rear is made of, well if you’ve seen the hot 9(see review) which looks just like spark 5 you’ll know its no other than a polycarbonate or plastic(glass like) build.
With the curved edges and 3D radian body, this phone can be held and also carried in the pocket with ease and comfort.

There’s more to the rear, What? Tecno has not made up their mind for a side scanner, so as usual, mounted on the rear is a capacitive fingerprint sensor and beneath the rear is embedded or stamped (whatever) the tecno logo.

The camera layout is also interesting, yeah, I mean the Quad AI camera, we would get there, let’s checkout the front.

Display: What more could you expect than a 6.6inches screen meant for viewing of the the dot-in display, whereby the dot houses the selfie camera. With the spark 5, Videos, movies, games, name it are viewed at high resolution resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels having pixel size of

Maybe you’re worried about the bright weather, I just think I should expound to you that it’s non of Spark 5 business, but why? That is because the display is equipped with maximum brightness of 480nits.


Tecno Mobile decided to spice things up a little bit. Instead of the triple camera of its predecessor, they decided to bring in the Infinix hot 9 style as the tecno spark 5 is manufactured with AI Quad rear camera but Tecno spoilt everything by making it 13 Megapixels.
You’re disappointed and about to leave this page, but know for sure that the next info will convince you.

Quad camera


The rear camera includes the 13 MP main AI camera 3.0, 2 MP Macro lens (zoom into the Micro word), 2MP depth vision camera which ofcourse is needed for bokeh effect and the QVGA light sensor meant to brighten images in low light without even switching on the flash.

2MP Macro lens

Arrangement if the Quad rear flash is just like that of Infinix note 7, meaning it’s aligned vertically close to the camera.
Selfie Camera: sitted in the dot embedded on the the display is a selfie camera of 8 Megapixels blessed with Dual LED flash which is also hidden immediately above the display.

Checkout: Tecno Spark 5 Pro Review, price and Specs 

Features: Well the Aperture size of the main sensor which is 13 Megapixels is measured to be f/1.8, and what this implies is that, more light would be permitted in, and combined with HDR that ensures image colours quality, the end product must be bright colourful images. Also there are features other than the aforementioned and they include Paranoma, AI scene detection, AI beauty mode, Stickers, wide selfie, portrait mode 2.0….

Bokeh effect which is the same with portrait mode other than the first being for the rear and second for the front, keeps the focus on you and blurs out everyother thing that’s not important in your photos.


Beneath the device is a meditek chipset and an octa CPU clocked at speed of 2.0GHz.
The storage is a nice one, I mean 32 GB of internal storage (what we were all expecting) and 2 GB of RAM.
This is enough to run your pes 2020 till you’re tired due to the large battery.

4G connectivity is what you get because anything less will not be acceptable looking at the price of the smartphone. There’s an audio port, loudspeaker, WLAN, Bluetooth and everyother essentials.
Further, the operating system on which this device runs is HiOS based on Android Q.


Battery uptimeThis graphics explains it all but let me share my part, Powering Spark 5 is a large battery of 5,000 mAh which can last long depending on usage as the graphics above explains it.
