Tecno Spark 8 launched with Helio P22 and 5,000 mAh battery

31 August 2021
The phone is up for grabs for retailers in Nigeria for NGN 50,000 ($130).

Sort by:


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.

Rearrange the word spark and you get skrap! More junk (and expensive!)

Tecno is very funny a 3 year old chipset, a useless secondary camera and 2GB ram for 130 dollars. This phone should be priced at 70 dollars.

That's a "interesting" design!

Would be nice if GSMArena writes an article about such curiosity like QIN F21 Pro. :-)
