When it comes to smartphones, aren’t we all spoilt for choice? There are several models available today in the market - some have a good battery, others a good camera, and another a perfect display, but we can’t buy three separate phones, right? Plus, even if you find your ‘dream smartphone’ with everything rolled into one, the price point is most likely to shatter you.
Fret not. We’ve got news that’s going to cheer you up in a jiffy! The TECNO SPARK Go 2020 is your answer to a big display, a monster of a battery, and a great camera, and that, too, at an unbelievable price of ₹6,499 – and that makes it the ‘Big B’ of all budget smartphones!
In the last few months, we’ve all realised the significance of a big display and powerful battery, since remote working and e-learning have become the ‘new normal’. Technology is a critical part of our lives today, especially the smartphone, whether you are an office-goer or a student, and, in both the cases, TECNO SPARK Go 2020 will be your most trusted companion.
With every TECNO Spark phone, the company goes a step ahead to introduce segment-first features. In January this year, the company launched SPARK Go Plus and received an overwhelming response, and it wants to replicate its success yet again with the new phone that caters to the needs of aspirational Bharat!
The moment I got my hands on this smartphone, I couldn’t take my eyes off it- it was dazzling, to say the least! Read on to know how the TECNO SPARK GO 2020 turned out to be.
I have to say that this smartphone surpassed my expectations of the battery! Yes, it goes on and on and on, and you’ll be thankful for all the juice. You literally don’t have to worry about anything, when you have this monster of a phone with you.
It houses a 5,000 mAh battery with a standby time of 36 days, calling time of 27 hours, web browsing for 19 hours, music playback for 145 hours, video playback of 21 hours and game playing for 14 hours. Well, these are all real numbers - you got to try to believe how good it is!
I think I have binge-watched all kinds of shows during this lockdown, but never have I had so much fun like I did on my TECNO SPARK GO 2020. I watched my favourite shows and films, and guess what? The battery didn’t run out!
Now that I’ve been working from home, I often get inundated with calls and video conferences, but this phone has truly had my back. It just never runs out of fuel, phew! I really think it’ll be difficult for me to go back to any other phone now.
If the battery impressed you, wait till you hear about its massive display! Never have I seen something like this on a budget smartphone - imagine, it has a 6.52-inch Super Big Screen. The display is impressive, but I also noticed how the phone sports a Dot Notch display with a 20:9 aspect ratio. The phone also has 480 nits brightness, 89.7% screen-to-body ratio and a 720 x 1600 HD+ resolution. There’s so much and more that’ll win you over!
And, again, for someone like me, who loves to binge-watch content, this phone is truly a blessing! I think it has seamlessly become a part of my lifestyle now - I read, work, play, watch and do anything and everything on this phone!
Dual cameras to impress
And how can we forget about the camera? Yes, I am literally a BIG fan! It has a 13MP AI dual rear camera with F1.8 aperture, 4XZoom, PDAF, Dual Flashlight and AI lens - you will get a picture-perfect shot, every single time!
And for someone like me, who loves selfies, this phone turned out to be my best friend. It has an 8MP selfie camera with a F2.0 aperture and a micro-slit front flash with adjustable brightness. Its Beauty feature made me look like a true beauty - yes, my skin looked flawless and my eyes bright! When I uploaded it on Instagram, my friends couldn’t stop raving about the image!
The camera is also equipped with 18 Auto Scene Detection Modes, Bokeh Effect, AI Beauty Mode and AI Portrait Mode. I took so many pictures of the view from my balcony, and wow, they turned out to be perfect! The greenery captured soothes the eye like no other. I literally didn’t have to do anything - the AI feature did its job.
What’s more, I zoomed in as well, and unlike most cameras, the picture wasn’t hazy or pixellated.
Helio processor: A powerhouse
The Helio A20 is a highly efficient processor with 12nm chip, and offers 27% higher performance in CPU tasks and 123% in games over the previous generation. A20 also offers the best power efficiency with its ultra-low power sensor hub, and is useful for apps which require more battery like fitness apps or voice assistants. Its Edge AI enables advanced single camera depth of field feature, which was not available in entry-level phones earlier.
Lastly, it has improved low-light performance over the previous generation, and boasts multi-frame noise reduction and clear zoom techno.
Spark GO 2020 also comes with a unique audio-sharing feature that enables users to connect two Bluetooth earphones or three Bluetooth speakers simultaneously. I can definitely play the role of the DJ at every house party with this smartphone.
The smartphone also comes with a rear Fingerprint Scanner for unlocking the smartphone, which is often overlooked by other phones in this price range.
The best budget phone
The ‘Expect More’ philosophy envisioned by TECNO is true to the T – it has been rolling out one phone after the other with the best features, at prices that don’t pinch the pocket. TECNO SPARK Go 2020 is a complete ‘Value Package’ priced at just ₹6,499. The smartphone also brings with it the brand promise of free one-time screen replacement, and one-month extended warranty (12+1 month).
