August 24, 2017
5 min read

The TECNO Spark and the Spark Plus new series were unveiled at a glamorous party in Victoria Island Lagos, to the admiration of many attendees -- which were mostly students.

This makes a lot of sense as the new TECNO Spark series is said to be targeted at the youth population. The TECNO Spark series comes in three variants -- the Spark with 1GB of RAM and 2GB of RAM and there is the Spark Plus with 6.0-inch screen and 2GB of RAM. One thing that caught our attention is the appealing design the Spark series has, TECNO didn’t sacrifice on this part a bit.

Join us as we unbox the TECNO Spark in full glory

There is a quality Assurance seal at the left side of the box-telling you are not to accept the package if it’s broken. Well, you may have to look out for this seal when making a buying decision

Upon opening the box, you are greeted with the usual accessories that come with devices these days

The TECNO Spark phone with some specifications written on the screen protector. The one that strikes our attention is the Mix Flash. We will talk more on this during the full review.

There is also a thick cellophane nylon at the back of the phone, you have to remove this well

You will have to open the plastic cover at the back to access the microSD card and the SIM slot (micro SIM + micro SIM). The device comes with 16GB of internal storage and you can expand to 32GB via the microSD card slot.

The charging port is located at the bottom of the TECNO Spark phone. This is where you will connect the USB cable during charging or when you are about to transfer a file from the phone to your computer

TECNO Spark comes with 13-megapixel at the back with dual LED flashlight. Beneath the camera is the fingerprint scanner that functions as the camera button to take pictures, receive calls and helps to secure the phone against unauthorised access.

The three-circular dots are the speakers grills -- meaning the speaker is located at the back of the phone.

We love that the TECNO Spark phone menu button is not onscreen -- you also have the exit button and the multitask buttons flanked in-between the menu button.

At the top of the screen, are the front flash, the 5-megapixel camera and the microphone

TECNO Spark first impression

TECNO nailed the design of the Spark phone, the plastic back cover is sleek and fits well with the device. It doesn’t look cheap at all.

There is a beautiful transparent pouch that accompanies the phone, the 13-megapixel back camera, 3000mAh battery, stock Android 7.0 Nougat with HiOS launcher are some of the features we love and will go a long in making a buying decision. Especially, for the price it is retailing for.

You can get the TECNO Spark for ₦32,800 at 3C Hub and other retail outlets in Nigeria.

This is the unboxing of the TECNO Spark device. Let’s know in the comments what you’d like us to cover in the full review. Keep sparkling.
