Tecno Spark 7 Pro Review
Now that you have a clear picture of the specs of the Tecno Spark 7 Pro, let’s discuss some key features. Doing this helps us to see whether this smartphone is truly an upgrade while understanding its key features. Let’s dive straight in.
Display and Design
A lot of work has been put into the design of the Tecno Spark 7 Pro. It is an attractive piece with an amazing build. The first thing that you notice about this smartphone is the metallic finish with a Spruce Green color. Despite having a metallic finish, this device is made from premium quality plastic.
The rear cover of this smartphone has a very attractive arrangement. There are three cameras behind and they are all properly arranged to enchant the user and anyone who sees the device. Sitting close to the cameras is the SPARK logo that shows the uniqueness of the Spark series from Tecno.
There is also a fingerprint scanner mounted on the rear panel. Looking at the dimensions of this device, 164.9 x 76.2 x 8.8 mm, you can tell that it is quite portable. This means that it will fit into your pocket or purse seamlessly. It is almost impossible to miss the textured design on the rear cover of the smartphone as well as its curved edges.
What about the display of the Tecno Spark 7 Pro? This smartphone comes with a 6.6-inch display screen that presents you with a mix of Dot-in and HD. It also comes with a refresh rate of 90Hz so it provides you with an amazing visual experience. The Spark 7 Pro doesn’t come with an FHD, instead, it presents you with 1600 x 720p in resolution.
How efficient is the camera on the Tecno Spark 7 Pro? Don’t forget that the camera of a smartphone is one of its chief features. The Spark 7 Pro features both rear and front cameras.
Its rear camera features a triple camera setup with a total of 48 megapixels. Tecno has added a Quad-LED flash to the setup to make it easier to shoot clear photos in dark places. To further improve image quality, Tecno has added an AI lens and a depth sensor. By the design, the main camera is capable of capturing high-quality images in the daytime to give a lot of detail.
The camera is also equipped with a Super Night Mode that boosts the brightness of photos and videos in dark environments. This camera also supports slo-mo videos of 240fps and the much-loved Bokeh effect. Finally, there is an 8-megapixel front camera similar to what you have in the predecessor of this smartphone.
Software and Hardware
The software and hardware of a smartphone are the core of its operation. Without both, the other features have no platform to function. The Tecno Spark 7 Pro comes with a MediaTek Helio G80 chipset. This is married to an octa-core processor that clocks a 2.0GHz speed. With this, you are assured of a smooth and swift performance
The chip of this smartphone is great and powerful enough to handle heavy apps and games without hiccups. It also runs on the latest Android 11 operating system based on the HiOS 7.5.0 interface. Also, the Spark 7 Pro features Bluetooth Audio Share 2.0, chat bubbles (instant messaging), scheduled dark theme, App twin, and video assistant.
Internal storage space and RAM size are also very important. There are three different variants of this phone based on the internal memory and RAM size. They are 64GB + 6GB, 64GB + 4GB, and 128GB + 4GB.
Another important factor to consider when choosing a smartphone is the battery life. Thankfully, Tecno equips the Spark 7 Pro with a 5000mAh battery similar to what is obtainable in its predecessor. This battery promises to last up to 14 days in standby mode and give you several hours of talk and game time. There is no fast-charge feature but the battery should get full within 2 hours of being plugged in.
