The Tecno Spark 2 has a 3500mAh battery and an 8MP front camera . Have I got your attention? It also has a 6 Inch screen and is a Google Go smartphone. What is a Google Go smartphone? Keep reading to find out.
Here are more specifications but first the unboxing video.
From the video you could notice that there was a boom player card inside but the smartphone itself does not have the boom music player installed. Well this has something to do thith the Android version which is known and Google Go edition.
Inside the box

- Detachable USB cable

Google Go is a very light operating system that includes the most basic apps needed in a smartphone. For this specific smartphone, the Tecno Spark 2, only WhatsApp and Facebook Lite were the odd apps out because they are not from Google. Every other app on the Tecno Spark 2 is directly from Google. Note that it had Facebook lite installed? Well the YouTube app installed is the YouTube Go version which is lighter and does not have fancy user controlled graphics. For example, you cant drag a playing video to the bottom of the screen as you browse YouTube home page, trending page or a channel.
I don’t want this article to drag on and become a full review so here is a screen recording of the Tecno spark 2. Note that the Spark 2 does not have the app drawer.
So as I was saying here are the Tecno Spark 2 specifications.
- 6 Inch Full screen display with a resolution of 1440 by 720
- 1.3GHz Quad core processor
- 1GB RAM
- 16GB Storage
- 13MP rear camera with ring flash
- 8MP Front camera with dual flash
- 3500mAh battery
Well they weren’t lying when they said that the Tecno Spark is bigger and brighter. We have already seen from the specifications above that it has a 6 Inch screen. But that is nothing or everything compared to how you view it without the following supporting features.
- Eye Care. The bright screen is good for outdoors use but when indoors, the brightness setting is greatly helped by the eye care setting. This is very helpful for late night browsing, chatting and watching. I tried this setting in the unboxing video above.
- Face ID. This is a very enjoyable feature. Having the ability to unlock the Tecno Spark 2 simply by looking at it is…..no words to explain.
- Fingerprint scanner
- One hand use
- VPN feature installed
- Web based apps can run on the Tecno Spark 2. This eliminates the need for installing apps that take up storage space. Instead apps like Twitter,fac Facebook and Instagram can run directly from the Google Go platform.
