TECNO KA7 – All you wanted to know

Posted by

The TECNO Spark2 is a 2018 smartphone and is the upgrade to the original TECNO Spark, though those familiar with the devices will argue that there isn’t much of an upgrade. TECNO Spark 2, aka TECNO KA7, gets a bigger display – now 6 inches, and a bigger battery, but it retains the 1GB RAM and 16GB internal storage of its predecessor. In addition, it has Face unlock.

Where there is an upgrade – and hopefully leading to better performance – is the software. The Spark 2 (TECNO KA7) runs Android 8 Oreo Go Edition. If you are not already familiar with the terminology, “Go Edition” means the software is optimised for budget smartphones with low resources.

Does that mean the phone runs pure Android OS and will get software updates from Google? No; it does not run pure Android OS, which is the best kind of Android for low-end smartphones. There is a layer of HiOS on it. As for software updates, we do not have an official confirmation of that.

For photography, we have a 13-megapixel main camera with LED flash and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies. The selfie camera has a quad-LED flash to assist in low-light situations.

Note that there is a TECNO Spark 2GB RAM variant that offers better multi-tasking and performance. That is the one to buy, if you can shell out the extra bucks.

Whichever of the two variants you go for, you are stuck with 2G and 3G network support for both voice calls and data. This is not a 4G LTE smartphone. But like all TECNO mobile phones, the KA7 is a dual-SIM device. Both SIM slots support 3G service.

With a 3500mAh battery, users should get reasonable battery life, considering that 4G is not available. Charging is at regular speeds, as quick charging is not available for the phone either.

    1. I don’t see this as an upgrade at all, an upgrade should be a 2GB RAM or more

      Araoye,

      That isn’t quite how it works. An upgrade comes in different shades. Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S9, for example both have 4GB RAM, yet the S9 is an upgrade to the S8 – better camera, newer features, newer software, etc.

      Spark 2 has newer and much better software, and even a newer, more capable processor, among other improvements. It still is an upgrade.
