Tecno Spark 2 VS Tecno Spark K7

Tecno Spark 2 VS Tecno Spark K7: Could this be the end of the Tecno Spark K7? Tecno Mobile has released another smartphone under their new Spark series called Tecno Spark 2. The first two smartphones under the series are Tecno Spark K7 and Tecno Spark Plus (K9). And of course, the smartphones under the Spark series are budget phones. The new Tecno Spark 2 offers some trending stuff like full HD view display and face unlock.

According to Tecno Mobile, the new Tecno Spark 2 is an upgrade to 2017’s Tecno Spark K7. But we won’t just take their word for it without doing our own investigation LOL. So in this article, we’ll be comparing the new Tecno Spark 2 with the Tecno Spark K7.

Aside from the Camon series, the Spark series also features great design. We can even argue between the Camon and Spark series. The Tecno Spark 2 and Spark K7 comes with a front glass and polycarbonate unibody. There’s a cute antenna line on both smartphone, making them look perfect to the eyes. On the Tecno Spark 2 is a rear mounted fingerprint sensor and face identification technology for biometric security. While on the Tecno Spark K7, there’s no face identification technology but you get a rear mounted fingerprint sensor.

In terms of thickness, the difference is pretty slim. The Tecno Spark 2 measures 7.8mm thick while the Tecno Spark K7 measures 7.9mm thick. I like the positioning of the rear camera of the Spark K7 than that of the Spark 2. The rear camera and LED flash of the Tecno Spark K7 is at the top left in a horizontal direction. While the rear camera and LED flash of the Tecno Spark 2 is at the top left also but in a vertical direction. The Tecno Spark K7 is available in four body colors; Phantom Black, Metallic Red, Champagne Gold and Coral Blue colors. While the Tecno Spark 2 is also available in four body colors; Phantom Black, Metallic Red, Champagne Gold, and Ash.

The new Tecno Spark 2 sports an 18:9 aspect ratio with minimal bezels at the top and bottom. While the top and bottom bezels on the Tecno Spark K7 is pretty large, with the bottom bezels housing the three navigation buttons.

Both the Tecno Spark 2 and Spark K7 sports a 720 x 1440 pixels resolution with 268 pixels per inch density. The only major difference between the two smartphones in the display department is the full view display and bigger screen size of the Tecno Spark 2.

Tecno Spark 2 VS Tecno Spark K7 – Hardware and Software

Powering both the Tecno Spark K7 and Spark 2 are MediaTek MT6580 chipset, Mali-400 graphics processing unit and a 4-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz. I was expecting a slightly better chipset on the Tecno Spark 2 since they said it’s an upgrade to the Spark K7. Hardware is one of the key department of any smartphone.

Running on the Tecno Spark 2 is Android 8.1 Oreo (Go edition), 1GB memory and 16GB internal storage, which is expandable up to 128GB using a microSD. While on the Tecno Spark K7 is HiOS 2.2 skin on top Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, 1GB memory and 16GB internal storage, which is also expandable up to 128GB.

Tecno Spark 2 VS Tecno Spark K7 – The Battery

Tecno Mobile is really funny to me. The battery department is where you get an upgrade from the Spark K7. The Tecno Spark 2 packs a bigger 3500 mAh battery capacity. While the Tecno Spark K7 packs a 3000 mAh battery capacity. No fast battery charging technology on both Spark smartphones.

Tecno Spark 2 VS Tecno Spark K7 – The Price

The Tecno Spark K7 is available for about $97 (N34,000). While the Tecno Spark 2 goes for about $103 (N36,000).
The main difference between them is the battery capacity, front camera megapixels, bigger screen size and Android Go edition. All that is worth the little extra cash that comes with the new Tecno Spark 2. Honestly, there’s no point of buying the Tecno Spark K7 anymore.
