Tecno Spark 5 (KD7h) is the latest model of the Spark phone series of the Tecno Mobile. Spark phones are known for their affordable price and trendy features.

At an affordable price, therefore, Tecno Spark 5 offers a sleeker design and up-to-date specs such as an ample Dot-in display, quad-lens back camera and latest Android 10 O.S.
Tecno Spark 5 is also fitted with a stronger 5000mAh battery.

Being a budget smartphone, however, Tecno Spark 5 is equipped with basic components. And most of these components are already found in the earlier Tecno Spark 4.

Therefore, like the earlier model, Tecno Spark 5 features Helio A22 chipset, 2GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage capacity. Tecno also return the same 8MP front-facing camera of the earlier phone to the latest Spark.

Meanwhile, the price of the Tecno Spark 5 is currently around 52,900 Naira. And like the earlier model, Spark 5 is also available in four colours, but slightly different options of Misty Grey, Vacation Blue, Ice Jadeite and Spark Orange.

Verdict: Considering its trendy design, stronger battery capacity and extra back camera lens, Tecno Spark 5 is a better upgrade from the Spark 4. Nonetheless, i still think Tecno should've complemented those features with 3GB of RAM.

Tecno Spark 5 Shares Design with Tecno Camon 15:
Though, Tecno Spark 5 comes with the same sleek look and the same 20:9 aspect ratio as the Spark 4. Also, the latest phone's 6.6-inch screen is just a little bigger than the 6.52-inch of the Spark 4, therefore, both phones also have almost the same dimensions.
Yet, Spark 5 still comes with one or two modifications that make the latest phone to look more appealing than its predecessor.
For instance, and instead of having screen-notch, the 6.6-inch screen of the Spark 5 comes with a cut-out hole, which is located at the top left corner of the display. And due to the presence of this cut-out hole, the screen of the Tecno Spark 5 is referred to as Dot-in Display.

The back of the Tecno Spark 5 is also mounted with a different, rectangular-shaped camera module, which houses the latest phone's quad-lens back camera and its quad-flash.

In summary, the overall look of the Spark 5 is a replica of the recent Tecno Camon 15, though, the latter packed better specs. As a result, Tecno Spark 5 can also be seen as the stripped-down variant of the Tecno Camon 15.

Other Visible Attributes Remain The Same:
Meanwhile, apart from the ones mentioned above, other physical attributes of the Spark 5 remain as those of the earlier model. Therefore, the frame and back of the latest phone are also made of plastic, and its fingerprint reader is also found in a position that's similar to that of the Spark 4.

On the phone's right edge are the volume rockers and power button, while the 3-in-1 SIM tray is found on the left edge. Furthermore, the phone's  3.5mm audio jack, microUSB port, microphone and speaker are located on the bottom edge. And as usual, there is nothing on the top edge.

Spark 5 Weight And Dimensions:
Compared to the 165x75.9x8.2mm dimensions of the Spark 4, Tecno Spark 5 has dimensions of 164.7x76.3x8.75mm. Which means both phones have almost the same sizes, despite the fact that the earlier phone has a slightly smaller display.
Nonetheless, as a result of its 191g weight, Tecno Spark 5 is heavier than its predecessor, which has a weight of 176g (6.2oz).

Slightly Increased Screen Size, Yet Same Screen Resolution:
The 6.6-inch display of the Spark 5 packed the same 1600 by 720 pixels like the earlier phone's display. But, due to its slightly increased size, Spark 5's display has a slightly lower pixel density of 265ppi, compared to the 269ppi of the Spark 4 display.

In other words, and technically speaking, Spark 4's 6.52-inch display is slightly sharper than the 6.6-inch display of the latest Spark 5. Though, your eyes won't be able to notice the difference.

Same Processor Power And Storage Capacity, But Latest Software:
Also found on the earlier model, Tecno returns the same Helio A22 MediaTek chipset to the latest Spark 5. Designed for budget smartphones and otherwise known as MT6761, Helio A22 is a Cortex-A53, 12nm Quad-Core processor which has clock speeds of up to 2.0GHz. This also means that Tecno Spark 5 features the same PowerVR GE8320 GPU like the Spark 4.

Tecno Spark 5 is fitted with the same 2GB of RAM and 32GB internal storage space as the earlier model. And the internal storage capacity can also be increased, via microSD card, up to 128GB.
Meanwhile, Spark 5 is preloaded with the new Android 10 (Q) O.S. and the latest Tecno HiOS 6.0.1 custom UI.

Upgraded Back Cameras, Yet Same Front Camera Lens:
Over the years, the back cameras of the Spark phones have increased in numbers, and again, compared to the Spark 4's triple-lens back camera, Tecno Spark 5 features quad-lens back camera.

Yet, apart from the newly introduced camera or Macro lens, the other three sensors are exactly like those of the Spark 4. In other words, and besides the newly introduced Macro lens, Spark 5 also features 13MP Main lens, 2MP Depth Sensing lens and a QVGA lens, just like the earlier model.

And just like the two previous Spark phones, i.e., Tecno Spark 4 And Spark 3, Spark 5 also features an 8MP selfie lens which is found inside the cut-out hole of the latest phone's display.
Furthermore, and like the Spark 4, Tecno Spark 5 does not have notification LED, instead it features Screen Flash. And like the earlier phone, the latest phone also features Face Unlock.

Stronger Battery Capacity:
Although the earlier Spark 4 came with a sufficient 4000mAh battery, nonetheless, Tecno still equipped Spark 5 with a stronger 5000mAh battery capacity.
Still, the latest phone doesn't support fast charging like the earlier one. Therefore, and due to its higher battery capacity, it might take more than three and half hours to charge the Spark 5 from zero to hundred percent.
