Tecno Spark 3 Pro : Before you Buy this phone

Manufacturers of the Chinese phone, Tecno Mobile was on Tuesday, the 2nd of April, 2019 very pleased to announce the launching of their newest brand to the Spark family, the Tecno Spark 3 and Tecno Spark 3 Pro.

In their remarks, the tecno Spark 3 comes in two versions which are; Tecno Spark 3 and Tecno Spark 3 Pro. Launched with android 8.1 Oreo lite and 9.0 Pie respectively.

However, while the Tecno Spark 3 comes with a 1 gig RAM, the Pro is better equipped with a 2gig RAM powered by a MediaTek Mtk6761 processor which allows for seemless performance.

Tecno Spark 3 is said to be available in a variety of colours ranging from Midnight black, champagne gold, Bordeaux red and Aqua Blue.

Fans were also enlightened that the Tecno Spark 3 comes with a 6.2 inch display with a 1520×720 pixels housing a notch display. This display is best fit for entertainment and video watching.

Memory space of the phone varies from 16 gigs to 32 gigs for the Spark 3 and Spark 3 Pro respectively.

Both at which can be expanded to 32GB with a memory card.

The most impressive feature of the Tecno Spark 3 is its camera. The phone is said to be equipped with a dual 13MP rear camera which has AI beauty mode.

This feature will allow the Spark 3 to take more clearer and beautiful photos.

The front facing camera is however not left out as it houses an 8MP camera. Perfect for taking selfies.

Both variations of the Tecno Spark 3 supports dual sim but only the Spark 3 Pro supports 4G LTE mode.

In terms of battery, nothing much has changed as it is seen to house a 3,500mAh Li-on battery.

This however would be greatly affected when 4G network mode is turned on.

In terms of security for the phone, the Tecno Spark 3 like its predecessors has fingerprint scanner at the rear and face ID.

Price ranges from $107.33 to $115.48 (₦39,500 to ₦42,500) and can be purchased from online stores like Jumia and Konga in Nigeria and Ghana


  • Although recently launched, the Tecno Spark 3 and Spark 3 Pro are both failures to the smartphone community especially smartphones released in 2019.
  • The phones are powered by a 1gig RAM and 2gigs of RAM respectively. A benchmark that has long been put to rest by other competitors.
  • The Tecno Spark 3 memory space can only be expanded to 32GB. A feature that goes to show how low-cost this phone was made.
  • Also, the 720 pixel screen resolution does no good for the Tecno Spark 3 given its current price tag. Most phones of such price range come better equipped with a FHD screen.
  • The dual 13MP rear AI camera is a hoax. This phone can barely take good shots of anything except under light (sun). Areas where lighting is poor, pictures turn out to be almost dark.

If you’re an android user looking for value for your money, I would suggest you look elsewhere.

Give a try on other manufacturers like Huawei, Nokia, Umidigi, Elefone and Ulefone.
