Tecno released a smaller variant of Spark 6 at an attractive price of $120 ~N45,000, the latest Tecno Spark 6 Go will be available for sale in India on December 25th via Flipkart. The device comes with an impressive design and a large battery, however, it is exactly like the Spark Go 2020.
While the Spark Power series is Tecno’s battery-centric devices, the company has maintained a great option for consumers who don’t want to spend much and still want a resilient battery, a HUGE display, and decent camera quality.
The Tecno Spark 6 Go is an amazing value for money. It has a wide display of decent quality, a great setup of dual-camera, and delivers performance that is on board with one of its main competitors like Realme C3.

The device features a 6.52-inch HD+ display with a 720 x 1600 pixels resolution, 269PPI pixel density, and an aspect ratio of 20:9.
Although the display is LCD and not AMOLED, it can still provide bright colors and a decent viewing experience. The back of the Spark 6 Go is made of plastic with a slightly lower premium feel. The eye-catching color options (Ice Jadelite, Mystery White, Aqua Blue), however, makes up for the plastic feeling.
There is a 13 MP(f/1.8) main camera on the back of the Spark 6 Go. This is combined with an unknown secondary lens. The phone has a front camera with 8 MP(f/2.0) AI for selfies.
Of course, compromises are typical and must be done in this price segment in order to cut costs. The phone comes in two chipset options and they are all not powerful chipset. We have the Mediatek Helio A20 (12 nm) option which is coupled with a 2/3GB RAM and the MediaTek Helio A25 (12 nm) which is more powerful and it’s coupled with 4GB RAM.
In most cases, the chipset will provide a smooth experience, although it will lag when playing hardcore games or multitasking.
The device has a 5,000 mAh battery that can comfortably last for one day of moderate use. Most budget phones nowadays support fast charging tech and include an 18W charger but that’s not the case here as the device comes with the usual 10W charger.
The Tecno Spark 6 Go runs on top of Android 10 of Tecno’s HiOS 6.2. If you are acquainted with HiOS 6.2, there is nothing new to talk about here. The OS is heavily filled with advertising, but there are abundant choices for customization which is very nice.
We wouldn’t prefer HiOS over stock Android that is seen on Nokia phones which many users may find boring, but the truth must be told, it not cluttered and it is well optimized than many Android OS.

Tecno Spark 6 Go price in Nigeria & availability
We don’t have info concerning the pricing of the base model but for the single 4GB RAM + 64GB storage model, the Tecno Spark 6 Go price in India has been set at Rs. 8,699. It comes in the color choices of Aqua Blue, Ice Jadeite, and Mystery White. In terms of availability, starting at 12 pm (noon) on December 25, the Tecno Spark 6 Go will be available via Flipkart.
No info concerning its release here in Nigeria. It may take time before it is released in Nigeria or may not be released. Nonetheless, we expect it’s release in couple of months and we estimate a price range of N45,000 – N55,000.
The Tecno Spark 6 Go seems more than good enough to meet most people’s needs when considering phones under 15,000, or maybe even 20,000.
Tecno Spark Power 2 doesn’t have the strongest processor, fast charging support, or an OLED screen with good resolution, it doesn’t even claim to be the best phone yet it’s a very balanced budget device priced as low as possible with a MASSIVE battery and screen which I believe it is very advantageous for watching Youtube videos all night long.
We you consider the price, there is actually a very little place to complain here, except you try hard to find flaws with the phone. I still feel that Tecno should have improved on the performance, but then again, this is a budget smartphone and it would be unfair to take Tecno out for the compromises.
You will have to extend your budget to N100,000 and get the Camon 16 if you need more strength in terms of gaming.
