Tecno Spark K9 Full Phone Review

Our Tecno Spark K9 full phone review gives you an in-depth understanding of the pros and cons of this smartphone.

This is to ensure that no stone is left unturned and you know what to expect even before handling the smartphone.

It may look flashy on the outside and look like the next trendy device in 2019, but there’s more than what meets the eye.

So, let’s get things underway!

Display

The Tecno K9 display is significantly larger than that of the K7 at 0.5 inches. This is because it features a 6.0-inch screen instead of the 5.5 inches as found on its lower model.

While this screen may be larger to give you more convenience as you type, browse and watch movies, it may tend to be less sharp than the K7.

The reason is, the same HD resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels has been maintained on this variant and one would’ve expected more pixels to be packed into the screen.

Tecno has also gone ahead to step down its pixel density to 244 PPI instead of the 267 PPI on the Spark.

This may look like an insignificant value but given that its a larger screen we’re talking about, you might want to think twice before settling for this variant.

That may be its con, but the pro to this design is that it’ll make the device’s battery last longer.

Another advantage is that you can watch your movies from a distance due to this large display and you’ll still be able to make out its content.

So, if we do not compare it to the Spark, you’ll still have a smartphone that can display images, text, and videos in good quality.

Next, there’s  a  2.5D glass on this screen whose function is to give the phone a sleek look and comfortable feel.

Its curved edges ensure that it sits securely in your palm as you play your favorite game or surf the net

Design

Tecno Spark K7 Images

The Tecno Spark Plus K9 features a metallic build to make it feel sturdy and ensure that it stands the test of time.

This is because phones with an aluminum build are known to last longer than those with a plastic build.

For this reason, it’ll survive quite a large number of falls before degrading.

The Plus’s dimension is 162 x 82.6 x 7.75 mm and since you already know its display’s measurement, you can have a clear picture that this is a large smartphone.

If you’re one of those that prefer your devices large and outstanding, then this will definitely settle well with you.

On the other hand, you’ll have to maintain a firm grip while operating with it, since it’ll more likely tend to slip compared to a smaller device.

Currently, the Tecno Spark K9 Champagne gold color seems to be user’s favorite due to the fact that it is a premium color, but you’ll still find this smartphone in variations such as Elegant blue, Scarlet red, and Anthracite grey.

So, take a pick to match your taste and fashion!

Hardware

The Spark Plus features a 2GB RAM to enable you to multitask.

For its price, this RAM size is considerably good and will tend not to lag or hang easily while the device is undergoing heavy task.

The same could not be said about the Spark which has one its variant featuring a 1GB RAM.

Therefore, you can read ebooks, listen to music, open different tabs on your web browser, and leave the previously accessed apps open and you won’t really have any noticeable lagging issues.

Asides the Plus’s increment in RAM capacity, the same internal memory storage has been maintained.

Here, what you’ll find is an inbuilt storage of 16 GB which can be expanded up to 32GB using microSD card.

This space to us, is quite large after comparing with another smartphone, the Gionee M6 Mirror which features the same storage, but is offered at a higher price.

Software

The details of the Plus’ processor show that it comes with a MediaTek CPU with 8 cores.

These cores will help you to carry out simple and complex tasks on the smartphone and at a speed comparable to that of the K7.

This is because the same processing Speed of 1.3Ghz has been maintained.

For its user-friendliness through the ease in navigating about the phone, the operating system of this smartphone is HIOS 2.0 based on Android 7.0 Nougat.

Nougat is still a hot cake when it comes to the latest OS from Google, but if you’ll like to stay in trend, you may be able you update the phone to the latest Android Oreo.

Camera

The Spark series are notable for their camera and as such, it should be the first feature you lookout for if you’ve decided to settle for a smartphone in this series.

The Spark K7 we reviewed was remarkable in this aspect and so is the K9.

The Plus has a rear camera whose resolution is 13MP. It has been enhanced with features such as autofocus, face detection, and HDR.

The front camera has a resolution of 5MP and it has been equipped with an LED flash to enable you to take clear and bright pictures even in a dark environment.

Therefore, our Tecno spark plus k9 camera review says this is a smartphone that can give reproduce images with great quality.

Battery

A larger screen will definitely need to pack in more battery and that’s what Tecno mobile has done.

Accordingly, the battery capacity of this smartphone is 3400mAh and it makes it slightly larger than the 3,000mAh battery of the Spark K7.

It might not look like a big of a difference, but you’ll definitely get a longer battery life due to the fact that the resolution of the screen has not been incremented.

Also, there’s the  Nougat power management feature to ensure that the phone’s battery power is utilized properly.

Charge it fully and you’ll be able to get a full day’s use on an average use and a couple of hours on heavy usage.

Connectivity

The K9 comes with dual SIM card slots to enable you to use more than one SIM at a time.

You do not have to make trades with a microSD, since a dedicated slot has been provided for each SIM.

Does Tecno Spark K9 have a 4G network? No, it doesn’t!

You’ll have to rely on its 2G and 3G network capabilities to access the internet.

If you’re also wondering, does the Tecno Spark K9 support OTG? Yes, it does and other connectivity options include Bluetooth, GPS, and WiFi.

There’s also a fingerprint sensor on this smartphone which serves to enhance its level of security.

The sensor is embedded at the phone’s rear, meaning that you’ll have to pick it up before you can unlock the phone.

This wouldn’t have been the case with a sensor embedded into the device’s home button.

Other sensors include G-Sensor, Proximity, Accelerometer, and Light sensor.

The Tecno Spark Plus K9 price in Nigeria ranges between ₦40,000 to ₦46,000 and it’ll vary if you’re buying it online, offline, or even a second hand.
