2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 1 Expert Review analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.

Design

  • Good aesthetics, with an attractive, gradient finish at the back
  • The back itself is removable - not that common in smartphones these days
  • Sturdy plastic build

Display

  • Big 6.52-inch HD+ IPS screen that looks great - the waterdrop notch helps the phone get an excellent screen-to-body ratio of 89.5 percent - colours look punchy and the quality is good for this price point
  • Decently bright for outdoor use

Software

  • HiOS on top of Android 9.0 Go helps the phone make the most of its hardware specification - the custom UI packs some useful features such as app shortcut, reading mode, and gaming mode
  • There is some bloatware that comes with the phone (though most of it can be uninstalled)

Performance

  • Performance is decent for the price, backed by the entry-level MediaTek Helio A22 chip (similar to Snapdragon 429) - you can even do some light gaming

Camera

  • Decent rear and front cameras (both single 8MP lenses) for the price - colours are represented nicely and pictures are clicked fast
  • Edge detection works surprisingly well in Bokeh mode on both rear & front camera (though the blur is on the subtle side)
  • The phone offers up to 1080p video recording on both the front and rear cameras which is a huge plus point
  • The camera interface is very simple to use even for beginners
  • Focus could have been better on the rear camera
  • Unsurprisingly, low light performance on both cameras is just average

Audio

  • Call quality is fantastic on the Tecno Spark Go Plus - you can hear people very clearly and visa versa

Battery

  • Tremendous battery life thanks to the 4000 mAh battery- a full charge will easily give you over a two day’s worth of juice on light usage
  • There is unsurprisingly no fast charging on the phone - very few phones in this price bracket have it

Verdict

  • A solid bang-for-buck at this price - if you’re on a tight budget, the Tecno Spark Go Plus is one the best options to look forward to
  • If you can stretch your budget to about an extra Rs 1000 you get more options to choose from like the Infinix Hot 8 Pro and the Xiaomi Redmi 8A (3GB RAM), which offer better hardware
