MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict

We are seeing TECNO Mobile adopt a differentiated market approach with the different variants of the Spark 4. If you are resident in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, and elsewhere in Africa, only the 2GB/32GB variant is officially available to you.

In India and other Asian countries, the 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB variants are on sale.

We wonder why this policy. Whatever the reason for it, it is similar to the policy that Nokia Mobile has implemented in the last two years – making only the lower variants of its phone models available in the Nigerian market while higher variants sell in other regions.

Regardless of the variant in view, the Spark 4 has a modest design, a triple camera at the back, as well as a fairly big 4000mAh battery. There is no quick charge in the picture though. In all, it is a decent 4G Android mobile phone at a decent price.

Our Buyer’s Guide Verdict is recommendation that we make based on our evaluation the specs of the device. It is a general guide designed to help you understand how much value a smartphone offers for its price. It is not a stamp of quality assessment or an endorsement of the device or of the manufacturers.
