Crystal-clear display.

One of the outstanding features of the Tecno Spark 6 Go is its display. It sports a large 6.52" IPS HD+ display made to let you enjoy an immersive viewing experience. Moreover, the screen is quite bright for standard usage, and for a 720*1640 pixels resolution, viewing content should be pleasurable for most Kenyans looking for a phone under KSh 13,000.

Meanwhile, if you're in the market for a large screen, the regular Spark 6, with a 6.8" HD+ display,  and the Spark 6 Air, with a 7.0" HD+ display offers you just that. Additionally, their 480 nits of brightness mean they'll be more readable under direct sunlight.

Performance and processing speed

Powering the Tecno Spark 6 Go is a MediaTek Helio A20 processor. Like most entry-level devices, the Helio A20 processor is powerful enough to run basic tasks like texting, calling, social media, and games. Similarly, the Spark 6 Air took it up a bit with its MediaTek Helio A22 processor.

Thanks to Android 10 (Go Edition), both devices pull up some excellent performance. For the unaware, Android 10 Go is the stripped-down version of Android 10, optimized for better performance, low storage and memory usage, and minimal data consumption. Joining the Android Go OS on the Spark 6 Go is Tecno's custom HiOS 6.2 skin, which gives you additional features.

Moving forward, the Tecno Spark 6 Go and Spark 6 Air are not for power users. If you want a more powerful performance, you're better off going for the regular Spark 6 with a MediaTek Helio G70 processor. It’s a gaming-centric device that should run most of your games and tasks smoothly.

Storage space

Both the Spark 6 Go and Spark 6 Air features up to 64GB of storage. However, the Tecno Spark 6 Go offers a variant with 4GB of RAM, leaving the Spark 6 Air to only 2 and 3GB of  RAM. More RAM equals better multitasking.

The regular Tecno Spark 6, being the king here, offers 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage. As expected, all the device features a dedicated microSD card slot to expand the internal storage if you want to store more.

Cameras

Tecno has continued to improve the camera systems on its devices, and the Spark 6 series aren’t left out. Even for their affordable selling price in Kenya, they deliver good cameras that can take stunning photos.

Once again, both the Spark 6 Go and Spark 6 Air features similar camera specs, as you get a nice 13MP primary camera on the rear. That's not all; there are other tiny details hidden under the specs. Feel free to check it above again.

On the other hand, the regular Tecno Spark 6 features a 16MP Quad-rear camera comprising a 16MP main, a 2MP macro, a 2MP depth sensor, and a dedicated AI camera. Where the regular Spark 6  shines is in video recording. The device can record up to 4K video quality, thanks to its more powerful MediaTek Helio G70 processor.

Finally, all three devices feature an 8MP selfie camera in their respective selfie camera cutouts.

Overall, all the devices feature many camera modes to use, most of them serving as enhancements to make your shots look good. They include AI Scene Detection, Portrait mode, Beauty Mode, AI HDR, and many more.

Battery life

Like many entry-level devices, excellent battery life is necessary! And for the Tecno Spark 6 Air, you get a massive 6000mAh non-removable battery, allowing you to enjoy unlimited fun throughout the day without worrying about recharging your phone. For most people (the normal users), the device promises a 2-day battery life or more. Unfortunately, it's hard to deplete the battery in just a day. And when you do, its 18W flash charge is always ready to refill it ASAP!

In contrast, both the regular Spark 6 and Spark 6 Go features a large 5,000mAh battery. Even in 2021, we consider 5000mAh to be a large battery! You also get an 18W fast charger on the standard Tecno Spark 6. Unfortunately, it's only the Spark 6 Go that doesn't offer fast charging amidst the three devices.

Once again, thanks to Tecno's Battery Lab on HiOS 6.2. Power never goes to waste on the Spark 6 series, as Battery Lab provides you with various ways to preserve your battery, even in critical conditions.

Final thoughts

Conclusively, the Tecno Spark 6 series offers you steep features at their respective price points. And also, Tecno has tailored the series based on your needs and pocket size.

If you're in the market for a phone with better performance, camera, design, display, and storage, then the standard Spark 6 is for you.

Meanwhile, if all you need is just a phone to carry out basic tasks like texting, watching movies, calling, and others, any of the Spark 6 Air or Spark 6 Go would be exceptional for you. Even with that, you're most likely to go for the Spark 6 Air if you care about a large battery and display.

So, whatever are your needs, the Tecno Spark 6 series is ready to offer you at an affordable price.
