The notch on this device is a bathtub one taking almost all the top screen real estate. It also has quite a noticeable amount of chin down at the bottom.

Again, we are seeing a new design here, the MicroSD card slot is found at the top of the device, at the back is the dual 13MP camera aligned vertically at the top of the device, under the camera is a LED light. At the center is the fingerprint scanner.

At the side is a power on and off button and volume up and down, the dual SIM slot is found at the side of the device. The design is sleek and fit perfectly in hand.

Tecno Spark 3 - Performance, Storage and Camera

Performance is very important, this is a midrange smartphone so we might not expect the device to be super fast but the performance of this Spark 3 is really good. Here the performance is enhanced with a 2GB of Ram and a 2.0 GHz Quad-Core to ensure that the device will not slow or nag even under heavy usage.

Furthermore to the performance, the device runs on Tecno's own HiOS based on the latest Android™ 9 Pie (being the company's first device to run on the latest Android OS). You are guaranteed a good performance that can withstand multitasking. The SPARK 3 brings you a faster, stronger, and seamless smartphone experience

As for the storage, the device comes with an Internal Storage capacity of 16GB ROM, it also supports up to 32GB MicroSD card expansion slot that is located at the top of the device that allows you to not run out of storage space so you can store more.

As for the camera, it featured with the newly upgraded camera and the intelligent image processing, the photos taken by SPARK 3 are very bright and clear. It has a built-in filter that can beautify the expression even in low light. With the 13MP dual rear bright cameras and 8MP front-facing selfie camera, you can capture the perfect moments whenever you like. The dual rear camera provides excellent depth of field effects with the AI beauty mode.

Tecno Spark 3 - Battery and Other Feature

A long-lasting battery is one of the major deciding factors when buying a new smartphone and Tecno has packed the device with a normal sized 3500mAh non-removable battery capacity that promises a full day usage. But, the device does not support fast charging.

However, other features include the face lock and fingerprint scanner for security and accepts dual SIM card. Connectivity options on the device include Wi-Fi, GPS, USB, and 3G, while the sensors on the phone include G-Sensor Ambient Light Sensor Proximity Sensor.

Tecno Spark 3 - Pros
  • Beautiful design and full view display
  • Good performance with the aid of more cores
  • Powerful camera quality powered by dual 13MP AI camera
  • Runs on the latest Android OS for better performance
  • Very security conscious, supporting both fingerprint and face lock
  • Midrange - so it is expected to be cheap
Tecno Spark 3 - Cons
  • The battery should have been at least 4000mAh
  • No Fast charge
  • No 4G LTE support
Finally, considering that the device is targeted at budget-oriented customers (does that need trending smartphones but does not have much money to spend), I would greatly recommend it to anyone needs a cheap smartphone. Expect from the missing 4G LTE, the 3500mAh battery is good enough and can last a whole day when fully charged.
