The Tecno Spark 5 is the latest from the company to launch in Kenya. The phone is available in the country from Ksh 13,400 and the price will vary depending on where you get it from. This phone replaces the Tecno Spark 4 that is still available in retail stores across the country. The Spark 4 is available for about Ksh 11,000, slightly cheaper than the Spark 5.
Given that the updated version is here, I thought it was a good idea to compare the two to see what is new and if it is worth upgrading.
Below is a specifications comparison between the Tecno Spark 4 and the Spark 5.
