Tecno Spark 2 is a great phone
admin thanks for the posts it is enlightening
keep it up.
I HV itel 1556 i want to change it to techno k7 he I my going to add before I will collect it
Not bad. I’d take this Spark 2 over Spark K7
The specs are slightly better than the first one. And the facial recognition technology on this is a plus.
great device, bigger view with a facial recognition isn’t a bad idea for an upgrade.
Its a nice phone but I think they can do better, especially with the camera. I think they will launch a TECNO Spark 2 pro to supplement this phone.
Indeed….. Let the front camera pixels b upgraded for a perfect selfie
they must upgrade for sure
