First Impressions

Even before handling the TECNO Spark 2, my first thought was “1GB RAM, TECNO, really?”. But before running away with that thought, I stopped to consider that this is somewhat a budget smartphone and the specs are not supposed to be glowing. Secondly, I have to actually use the phone to see how the 1GB RAM performs; even though I stubbornly still suspect it won’t be anywhere near excellent. But budget phone, still.

Apart from this seeming hitch, from design to camera and battery every other thing looks and feels well stacked. An experiential review will show more strengths and weaknesses.
