Design and Display comparison
Though both of this device feature a plastic rear build, spark 5 air appears to have more mass as it’s taller the spark 5. They come in the same colour variants and they both have fingerprint sensor embedded on their rear.
Of course if spark 5 air is taller the other guy so is it’s screen of 7 inches unlike spark 5 with 6.6 inches display screen, however both have a punch hole that houses the front selfie camera
This is where spark 5 starts equalising as it has been trashed 2-0, sitting at the rear is a quad camera supported by a quad flash, the main lens being 13 Megapixels while the tecno spark 5 air possesses only two rear camera but also has it main lens to be 13 MP. Cmaea features such as HDR, Paranoma are available on both device.
