1. Tecno Spark specs
Spark is the newest member of the Tecno phones family. The latest device is aimed at buyers on a budget who are quite passionate about photography. Camera specs in the Tecno Spark phone have a lot in common with the Camon CX, another leading photography smartphone. Here is what Tecno Spark has inside:
- 1.3GHz octa-core CPU
- 1GB of RAM
- 5.5-inch display
- 16GB of internal storage + 32GB microSD expansion capabilities
- 13MP primary camera
- 5MP front camera
- Front and back flash
- Battery capacity: 3000mAh
Tecno Spark is one of the most affordable smartphones on offer today, but, luckily, the low price didn’t make its appearance or specs any less attractive. The device comes in a metal design and four colors: black, gold, blue, and red.
The display and performance of the new Tecno phone promise an enjoyable use: the 5.5-inch screen will let you enjoy all of your favorite media, while the quick performance will allow you to run even the most demanding apps.
Of course, the strongest point of the newest Tecno device is its two flash-equipped cameras that make it super easy to take masterpiece photos even in low light setting. The built-in storage of 16GB may not be enough to store your photos after a few months of use, but this problem can be easily solved with a microSD card.
2. Infinix Hot 5 specs
Infinix phones always make a splash in the news whenever there’s a new release, and the new Infinix phone 2017 is no exception. Infinix Hot 5 is another budget smartphone that shares many features with the Tecno Spark, but at the same time, it has a unique set of specs. Here they are:
- 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek chipset
- 2GB of RAM
- 5.5-inch display
- 16GB of internal storage + 128GB microSD expansion capabilities
- 8MP primary camera
- 5MP front camera
- Battery capacity: 4000mAh + fast charging
If you’ve spent the last few months looking up the latest Infinix phones and prices, you already know that the Infinix Hot 5 release date is late August. The Hot 5 is a representative of the budget class of smartphones that are not aimed at any particular category of buyers, unlike the Tecno Spark. It comes in a trendy brushed metal body and is available in 5 colors, including pearl white, gold, and the rare grass green.
The Hot 5 sports a 5.5-inch display and average specs for its price range, which means you’re guaranteed to get an enjoyable viewing, playing, or working experience thanks to the widescreen resolution and fast performance.
The cameras on the new Infinix phone are pretty much average: they will let you snap a quick photo on the go or a cute selfie, but the lack of a front camera flash and the subpar primary camera are what may possibly bring the quality of the photos down.
3. Which one to choose?
New devices from both Tecno and Infinix are respectable entries in the budget smartphone market. Both of them can be a great choice of an affordable new mobile phone since even the price of the two phones is quite similar – each of them will retail in Nigeria for ₦35,000-45,000, depending on the location.
However, there are some key differences to consider. If you think of yourself as a photography enthusiast, you may find the camera specs of the Infinix Hot 5 not advanced enough, while the photography capabilities of the Tecno Spark are exactly what you need for high-quality photos.
Nevertheless, the Infinix Hot 5 has a major advantage over Tecno Spark. We’re talking about its battery capacity: 4000mAh is clearly better than 3000mAh, and the fast charging technology will allow you to use the phone all day long without running for the next power socket.
