TECNO Spark 5 Pro Gaming Review


The Tecno Spark 5 Pro really performs well when it comes to simple offline and online games like Ninja Arashi and Among Us respectively. Playing simple games like cand crush and Danger Dash feel like nothing to the Spark 5 Pro.

Video Review

The following video better explains my thoughts on the Tecno Spark 5 gaming performance.

Tecno Spark 5 Pro Gaming Review

As for resource demanding games like PUBG then the graphic settings are set to smooth with medium frame rate. I changed the graphic settings to balanced and after a 30 minute PUBG game, the temperature on the device was just35 degreed centigrade. No overheating and lag reported. The Tecno Spark 5 Pro is indeed a budget gaming device. My general review https://www.techsawa.com/reviews/tecn… Specs -2.0 GHz Octa-Core processor -4GB RAM -128GB ROM -16MP Quad rear camera


PUBG is one of the most resource demanding games on the Playstore right now. This very fast paces game needs a device that will handle all its demands from a stable network to good graphics. The following screenshot was taken using the inbuilt game mode panel.

The screen shot above and below have this black bar on the left. That is not an error, that is the Spark 5 Pro tying to hide the camera dot on the screen. In fact all the video screen recordings have this black bare too. I had to scale and position the screen recordings for my video review.

The system automatically chose smooth graphic s with medium frame rate. For experimentation purposes I changed the graphic settings to Balanced Graphics with medium frame rate.

After playing one PUBG for at least 30 minutes the highest temperature I recorded was just 35 degrees centigrade. I never experienced any overheating while gaming on the Tecno Spark 5 Pro. The laser temperature gun with the temperature is what you can see as the features image on this post.


The Spark 5 Pro supports DTS audio for a vey good experience while gaming. For a fully immersive gaming session I would suggest good headphones. Those who have played PUBG know what the sound experience is like. One feels like they can point at where a vehicle or footsteps are ciming from.

So the Spark 5 Pro also came with free Tecno Hipods H2, and I also tried gaming with these connected. When it comes to music playback, whatching youtube and TikTok vides, the sound is of high quality and there are no problems and complaints all.

When it comes to gaming, there is a noticeable lag. The experience is not so great so I would suggest gaming with wired earphones or headphones. Leave the Hipods H2 for music and video playback.


The big battery capacity is why I would recommend the Spark 5 as a budget friendly device. 5000Mah is a lot and while gaming on modest screen brightness settings you can play games continuously for 5 hours for resource demanding games like PUBG and Call Of Duty.

Simple games that don’t require network access can go for a lot hours of continuous game playing.

The only downside to battery and charging is that the Spark 5 does not have fast charging.


The gyroscope sensor is not available on the Tecno Spark 5 Pro. So what happens when you enable the Gyro settings in PUBG? Well, I feel like the phone tends to use the accelerometer instead and that makes the gameplay a little jittery. I would not recommend using the gyro settings. Just use the native on screen controls for navigation.


The cost of the Tecno Spark 5 Pro in Kenya is Ksh13,999 which is exactly the cost of the original Tecno Spark 5. So for the same amount of money you will get more RAM, Storage, a bigger camera and slow motion recording too.

According to the current exchange rates, the cost of the Spark 5 smartphone is USD129.
