Due to its basic features, Tecno Spark Go 2020 (KE5) belongs to the category of entry-level smartphones. And, from its given name, it's also obvious that the phone comes from the line of Tecno Spark Series. Apart from coming from the line of Spark Series, the design (especially the front) of the phone is also a reminiscent of the Tecno Spark 4. The phone also comes in size of the older Spark phone.
 
Yet, talking about its exact looks, i'd like to refer Spark Go 2020 as the smaller version of the Tecno Spark 5 Air. Because unlike the Spark 4 that has triple back camera and different looking back camera module, Spark Go 2020 back camera module looks like that of the Spark 5 Air, and it also features dual-lens back camera like the bigger phone.
But, instead of having 7.0-inch screen like the Spark 5 Air, Spark Go 2020 sports 6.52-inch screen like the Spark 4.
As a result of this, Tecno Spark Go 2020 can either be seen as a stripped down variant of the Tecno Spark 4 or a smaller version of the Tecno Spark 5 Air.
 
As A Strip-down Variant of The Spark 4: 
Tecno Spark Go 2020 comes in size and shape of the previous Spark 4. In addition to that, this phone also packed most of the features of the older Spark phone.

Like the older phone, for instance, Spark Go 2020 sports 6.52-inch drop-notch display and 20:9 aspect ratio. The phone also features 2GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage space and 8MP front camera. Also, the Primary back camera of the Spark Go 2020 is fitted with a 13MP sensor like that of the Spark 4. But, instead of having triple-lens back camera like the Spark 4, Spark Go 2020 comes with dual-lens back camera. Apart from having dual-lens back camera, the phone also comes with a different looking (rectangular-shaped) back camera bump.

Furthermore and despite that Spark Go 2020 has the same amount of RAM and ROM as the Spark 4, the phone's processing power is slightly lower than that of the Spark 4. In other words, Tecno Spark Go 2020 is equipped with Helio A20 chipset, which has a slightly lower processing power, compared to the Helio A22 of the Spark 4.

Nevertheless, more than the 4000mAh battery of the Spark 4, Spark Go 2020 is fitted with a much stronger 5000mAh battery. And while Tecno Spark 4 was pre-installed with Android 9 Pie, Spark Go 2020 is running on the Android 10 (Go Edition) with the recent Tecno HiOS 6.2. Though the difference in their OS is due to the age gaps between the two phones.

As A Smaller Version Of The Spark 5 Air:
Apart from its smaller size and slightly lower processing power, every other attributes of the Spark Go 2020 are like those of the Tecno Spark Air.

In other words, and while Spark 5 Air sports an ample 7.0-inch drop-notch display, Spark Go 2020 has a slightly smaller screen of 6.52-inch. And like the Spark 4 above, Spark 5 Air is also fitted with the Helio A22 chipset; which, as i said earlier, has a slightly faster processing power, compared to the Helio A20 of the new phone.

However, that is where the differences between the Spark 5 Air and Spark Go 2020 ended. Because, apart from the fact that Spark Go 2020 also features 2GB of RAM, 32GB ROM and 8MP front-facing camera as the Spark 5 Air (and  Spark 4 above), the phone also features the same 13MP dual back camera and has the same type of back camera bump as the Spark 5 Air.

Also as i mentioned earlier, Spark Go 2020 is equipped with a 5000mAh battery; which is the same battery capacity that came with the Spark 5 Air. Both of the phones are also running on the Tecno HiOS 6.2, on top of the Android 10 (Go Edition) OS. This phone also support 4G (LTE) network like the Spark 5 Air and the earlier Spark 4.

Meanwhile, Tecno Spark Go 2020 is available in four colour options of Aqua Blue, Ice Jadeite, Mystery White and Sky Black. The current price of this phone is around 45,000 Naira (Ksh 12,999), and it's available in most of the phone retail outlets and online stores.

DESIGN: Tecno Spark Go 2020 shares looks with The Spark 4 And Spark 5 Air:
Though, due to the three phones 20:9 aspect ratios and identical Drop-notch displays, the front of the Spark Go 2020, Spark 4 and Spark 5 Air look alike.
Yet, the front of the Spark Go 2020 looks a lot more like that of the Spark 4. This as a result of both phones similar dimensions and their identical 6.52-inch displays.

However, from its 193g weight and 165.6x76.3x9.1mm dimension, it's obvious that the Spark Go 2020 is heavier than the 176g Tecno Spark 4. And i think the latest phone's heavier weight is as a result of its higher battery capacity. Besides its heavier weight, the stated dimension also revealed that the new phone is thicker than the Spark 4; which has a thickness of 8.2mm. And in comparing the plastic bodies of the two phones, it also seems the chassis of the Spark Go 2020 doesn't have the premium finish of the Spark 4.
 
Nonetheless, the arrangements of ports and button on the Spark Go 2020 are almost the same with those of the Spark 4 and Spark 5 Air. You have the Volume rockers and power button on the right edge of the phone, while the 3-in-1 SIM slot (and tray) is located on its left edge.
However, instead of having its speaker placed on the bottom edge, like those of the Tecno Spark 4 and Spark 5 Air, Spark Go 2020 speaker is found on its back, and it's located towards its bottom. Still, like those of other two phones, there is nothing on the top edge of the Spark Go 2020.

Spark Go 2020 Display And Cameras:
Like that of the Spark 4, the 6.52-inch IPS-LCD display of the Spark Go 2020 also features the same HD+ resolution of 1600 by 720 pixels. This also implies that the screen has the same pixel density of 269ppi.

Meanwhile, the rectangular shaped back camera bump of the Spark Go 2020, which looks like that of the Spark 5 Air, is also mounted with a dual-lens camera. And the dual camera also comprises of a 13MP Primary sensor and a QVGA sensor; which assist the main camera in taking a more clearer low-light pictures.
By the way, the two back cameras, and the phone's 8MP front-facing camera, are capable of shooting 1080p videos at 30fps.

Processing Power, Software And Battery;
Tecno Spark Go 2020 is powered by the MediaTek MT6761D or Helio A20 chipset; which has a little lower processing power, compared to the Helio A22 that's found on the Spark 4 and Spark 5 Air. Though Helio A20 is also a Cortex-A53 Quad-Core processor like the Helio A22, but instead of having 2.0GHz maximum clock speed, Helio A20 has a maximum clock speed of 1.8GHz. Yet, this chipset is also fitted with the same PowerVR-GE8320 GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) as the Helio A22.

Still, like the Spark 5 Air, this phone is running on the Tecno HiOS 6.2 (custom UI) on top of the Go Edition (the lighter version) of the Android 10 OS (Operating System). And it also comes with 2GB of RAM and 32GB inbuilt storage. The inbuilt storage capacity of the Spark Go 2020, like that Spark 5 Air, can also be expanded, via microSD card, up to 256GB.

Despite sharing screen size and form factor with the Spark 4, Spark Go 2020 is fitted with a much stronger 5000mAh battery; which is the same battery capacity that came with the bigger Tecno Spark 5 Air. Yet, like the Tecno Spark 4 and Spark 5 Air, Tecno Spark Go 2020 doesn't support fast charging, so it might take you over three hours to fully charge Spark Go 2020's battery from one percent.
