Yaba, this is not an improvement from the spark 7 and spark 7p, sure 8mp selfie, 16 mp main shooter, helio p22 , esp the 2GB RAM is so disappointing

  • Nikke

2GB RAM paired with 64GB ROM bad combination
P22 chip set is not powerful enough

I will compare spark 8 by specs with pop 4

Mohit, 31 Aug 2021Woww bro 👌🏼Or krap(with a silent s) lol✌️

Same chipset on the Spark 5 Pro. After 3 releases, back to the same chipset???

🤣🤣🤣

I'd not pay $90 for this. Only the ignorant consumers—which, unfortunately, there are many of—would pay ₦50k for those poo specs.

I've only ever bought three Tecno smartphones and all were before 2015:, P3, M3, and P5. The first as backup to my Gionee Elife E3, while the latter two deputised for my Galaxy Note 2, with the M3 handing over the baton to the P5 in a matter of weeks.

Tecno and siblings (Infinix, and—worst of the lot—Itel) offer poor value for money. They, alongside Gionee, served some purpose as alternatives to, then, Samsung's crappy budget offerings, offering better value.

They're lucky that Xiaomi doesn't run Ads for its phones. And that OPPO that does is busy rubbing shoulders with Samsung, asking for more money than their phones are worth, leaving store attendants (a very potent weapon) the duty to trick buyers into getting overpriced OPPOs. If not, Xiaomi would have easily relegated them to the sidelines, farther away from the action. Olympic style.

These shared fingerprint sensor and camera island designs are not doing it for me.
