There is a new player in the mobile industry—Tecno Mobile. They launched a new entry level and more affordable smartphone, the Tecno Spark 6 Go. Bringing users an elevated immersive experience along with more powerful cameras, multiple Bluetooth sharing, bigger screens, higher capacity, and faster speeds.
Unboxing the smartphone is very familiar with the eye-catching logo of the Tecno Spark 6 Go, there are some details in the front and back. When you open the box the first thing you see is the phone with a screen protector already installed which is nice, next is the yellow box presented with warranty card and it has a free soft clear jelly case included with a headset, and lastly, the USB cable connector and a white charger adaptor.
For the Tecno Spark 6 Go you can either buy the color variant mystery white, aqua blue, and ice jadeite. The phone equips 6.2 inch HD+ IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 720 x 1600 px. It has a plastic back and plastic frame. The phone is slim, light, and very easy to handle though a little bit slippery.
The design of the back consists of a gradient style, there is a change of color depending on the light. The front has water drop notch style with a 8mp camera sensor and for the rear cameras it has dual lens style contains 13mp for the main sensor, 8mp for portrait and a LED flash.
The selfie cameras captures good colors not that saturated and not that contrasty with a good light condition it produces a true to life skin tone and you can take wider selfies that works like panorama. For the 13mp camera sensor at the back, it captures okay photos but nothing mind blowing.
There is some noise in less than ideal lightning conditions. The 8mp portrait produces natural and cleaner bouquet effect. It has a fingerprint sensor at the back which is easy to set up and reliable and convenient than face scan since people are wearing masks outside during this pandemic.
Powering the phone is a 2 GHz 12nn Mediatek Helio A20 Quadcore processor with a GPU of PowerVR GE8300. The phone is fast for the price. You will experience small amount of frame drops but manageable when playing games but still an amazing experience and satisfying.
Phone is expandable via micro sd card up to 256gb. When it comes to benchmark it scores 131 for single core 452 multi core in geekbench 5 this scores are impressive for the price.
One thing weird is the speaker of the phone that is actually located at the lower back of the phone, good thing is as it doesn’t block the area of speaker when playing games but when calling someone the speaker will be block for the full audio experience.
A unique feature of the phone is the ability to remove the plastic back where you put the sim card and the micro SD card but the 5000mah battery is not removable.
It has already the latest Bluetooth 5.0 that doesn’t give any problems when connecting to any Bluetooth devices or speakers.
The software of the phone has a skin of HI OS 6.2 on top of Android 10. It has clean icons and straight forward experience but there are some bloat wares installed but easy to uninstall.
The phone has a huge 5000mah battery and really one day is not enough to drain it to 0 percent. Taking photos and videos, playing games, watching Netflix and YouTube, surfing the web, scrolling to some of the social media and yet it still has some juice left. Only disadvantage is the charging since it is a big battery and still using the micro usb traditional charging and it is bit slow.
In summary, we recommend this phone. The phone is fast, has good display, capable cameras, quick fingerprint scanner , back firing speakers, amazing battery life, and insanely very affordable price which starts at 3,990 PHP for the 2GB RAM / 32 GB internal storage and 5,490 PHP for the 4GB RAM / 64 GB internal storage.
