This is a quick review of the Tecno Spark 4 launched in late August 2019.
Tecno Spark 4 is the latest addition to Tecno’s Spark-series, and also the standard variant of the Spark 4 Air, which had just 6.1-inch display. In contrast, the Spark 4 comes with a larger 6.52-inch IPS HD+ display, with 720 x 1600 pixels resolution.
Features of the Tecno Spark 4
Colourful Gradient Design
Tecno SPARK 4 surprisingly designs 4 colorful gradient back cover – Royal Purple/Vacation Blue/Misty Grey/Energetic Orange -.
13MP AI Triple Rear Camera
Equipped with 13MP Triple Rear Camera and 8MP Front Camera, SPARK 4 does well in clear photography, bokeh effect and AI portrait mode. Photos and selfies taken by SPARK 4 would be much more impressive and attractive under any scenarios. Newly upgraded algorithm “AI Camera 2.0” brings AI HDR, AI Scene Detection and more amazing photography functions. Even in back light scenarios, SPARK 4 could still be brighter and clearer, avoiding overexposure of the light parts and clearly showcasing dark details.
32GB Memory & 2GB RAM
The Tecno Spark 4 offers 32GB ROM offers user more space for photos, music, videos and files storage. 2GB RAM is fast and o, but not THAT fast. 2.0GHz Quad-Core processor presents lower power consumption and faster running speed. You can do a bit of light gaming as well.
It has a 4000 mAh battery.
Android™ 9 Pie & HiOS 5.5
HiOS 5.5 is Tecno’s own Operating System. Far cry from an IOS 13 but at least very worth it. Read about it here.
Android Pie (codenamed Android P during development) is the ninth major release and the 16th version of the Android mobile operating system. It was first released as a developer preview on March 7, 2018, and released publicly on August 6, 2018.
The new HiOS 5.5 provides a slew of immersive experience and creative features that improves the overall phone experience of users. The AI Video Chat Beauty Mode is cool too, and they say gaming is a much more friendly experience.
As for the camera department, you are getting a dual 13 + 2-megapixel rear placed camera, and a single LED flash. At the front, there is a 5MP sensor for more real selfies, which also come with a single LED flash upfront.
