The Tecno Spark Power 2 comes with a HUGE battery of 6000mAh and a huge screen of 7-inc). The device will soon be available in Nigeria with an expected price of N55,000. As for now, it will be available since June 23rd in Indian retail stores for Rs 9,999.
The Tecno Spark Power 2 is the sequel of Tecno Spark Power that was released last year. There aren’t too many worthy improvements in Spark power 2 but there are some slight improvements in the cameras and screen size that might make the update worth it for users who binge-watch movies.
As the name suggests, Tecno Spark Power 2, is a smartphone that targets those who want a device with large battery capacity. Honestly speaking, this will be the most affordable smartphone with such a large battery capacity.

- Cameras: Front — 16 MP | Rear — 16 MP + 5 MP + 2 MP + QVGA

Design & Display
Looking at the pictures of power 2 for the first time from Tecno’s official site, there is no much change in the design when compared to its predecessor. The Spark Power 2 though looks a little bit different from its predecessor and this is due to the quad Al camera on the back cover plus the overall color Inspired by the river of stars with exquisite textural lines and colors overlapping and changing under the light of different environments.
Despite all that I’ve said, the design is still decent for its price but if it was an entirely unique design, it might have been great. The device will definitely feel heavy and this is due to its huge battery and screen size.
The volume buttons and power buttons are on the phone’s right side. Like other budget devices, this device uses a fingerprint reader on the back. Facial recognition is also available for extra security.
The device comes with a MASSIVE 7.0-inch screen with a water drop cut off in the middle. I realize this sort of notch has been ditched by many manufacturer’s but Tecno still provides it for this device.
The screen resolution of 720 x 1640 pixels is not fine by me! but the 20.5:9 aspect ratio makes it easy to hold and use with one hand, and I like such devices.

Spark Power 2 has four cameras on the back, consisting of a 16 MP (f/1.8) Wide sensor, a 5 MP Ultra-wide lens, an 2 MP macro lens, and a QVGA depth sensor. A 16 MP lens takes care of the pictures and videos.
You are getting a variety of camera settings to help you capture the videos and images you like. The AI system, beauty mode, bokeh mode, super night mode just to name a few are some of the main modes. Also supports panorama mode, and so is full HD video capture.
Performance & Battery
Within the Tecno Spark Power 2, it is powered by Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 (12nm) chipset. The device is based on Android 10 with HIOS 6.1 as its UI.
As for the memory, it comes with a 4 GB RAM and 64 GB ROM which can be expanded using a Micro SD Card of up to 256 GB.
The Tecno Spark Power 2 comes with a 6000 mAh battery that will be enough for most users. It can last a whole day, or even more, depending on your activities.
This is a device with much focus on the battery and screen size so bear in mind that it will surely deliver the long-lasting battery. With the provided 18W adapter, the device will charge fast (50% in 60 min as advertised by Tecno).

Tecno Spark Power 2 Price in Nigeria & Availability
- 4 GB + 64 GB: ~$130/₹9,999 ~ N55,000
It is already available in the Indian market since June 23 2020 and the expected release date for Nigeria is yet to be known.
This is a nice budget phone for those who are interested in long-lasting battery and big screen. Other than that, it is totally not worth buying. There are no many improvements when compared with its predecessor.
As usual, the processor is not meant for heavy usage or playing heavy games like PUBG. Of course, you can still play some games but still, it won’t be that smooth.
This device will have been better if it comes with at least an OLED screen and a 1080 pixel display. Not even to talk of a Qualcomm chipset or a better Mediatek chipset.
