Price comparison

The price of any device will matter and the first question you will ask is. Does it fit my budget? This is why I start with a comparison in prices. Tecno spark 2 will cost you up to UGX 480,000 at Jumia Uganda while Tecno Camon cm costs up to UGX 640,000, but note that the prices keep on changing depending on the season of purchase.

Look at the Battery

Talk about the battery, Tecno Camon houses a 3000mAh removable Li-Ion battery whereas Tecno spark 2 carries a very powerful 3500mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery. Of course the figures show it clearly that spark 2 may last longer, but note that none of these two devices supports fast charging.

What about the display.

Tecno Camon Cm has 5.7-inch HD+ screen with 1440 x 720 pixels in resolution; this gives it a sharper 282 pixel per inch density because of the compact screen. In addition to that, it gives 18:9 aspect experience which means that details will be sharper. On the other hand, Tecno spark 2 has a 6-inch HD+ screen, which boasts of 1440 x 720 pixels in resolution and 268 pixels per inch density. This displays out 18:9 aspect ratio, with minimal top and bottom bezel.

Camera pixels

Tecno Camon CM is equipped with a 13MP rear camera with a Quad-LED flash and many other features that will enhance your photography. Beside that Tecno Spark 2 also has the same camera specifications of 13MP rear shootout but with a TRI LED flash.

If we talk about the quality of photography, Spark 2 rear camera shoots better pictures than the Camon CM despite having the same 13MP camera. You may ask yourself why, perhaps the two cameras of 13MP have different lenses.

Moving down to the selfie usage, Spark 2 carries an 8MP selfie capturing camera with dual LED flash capable of supporting Face ID, whereas the Tecno Camon CM dominates in this aspect with its super sharp 13MP selfie shooter that has f/2.0 aperture, although no support for Face ID inbuilt here.

Compare both Hardware and Software

Behind the screen, Tecno Camon CM is powered by MediaTek MT6737 chip with a Quad-Core running on a processor speed of 1.3GHz, while Tecno Spark 2 houses the MediaTek MT6580WP chip with Quad-Core and processor speed of 1.3GHz, practically the devices run the same processor speed.

However MediaTek MT6737 housed in Tecno Camon CM is a better processor compared to Tecno Spark 2. This is because MediaTek MT6580 is a 32-bit and a very old processor which doesn’t support 4G LTE as well while MediaTek MT6737 is a 64-bit processor capable of supporting 4G LTE. This is the reason why the Camon CM has 4G LTE and the Spark 2 does not.

Tecno Spark 2 also has just 1GB of RAM for smooth multitasking since it runs on Android 8.1 Oreo Go Edition. While the Camon CM packs 2GB of RAM and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat. Both internal storage spaces are tied at 16GB with an option to expand via a MicroSD card.

With performance evaluation, Tecno Camon CM is a better device as compared to Tecno spark 2, and this is the reason it costs more than Spark 2.

The Design

Moving down to the design, you may fail to differentiate the two phones. First of all they share the same design language. A Polycarbonate body with antenna line as well and a rear camera that pops up. They both come with a fingerprint scanner for quick access to the device.

More to that, the camera and LED flash placement on both devices are quite positioned in the same place, both are in a vertical position which is very trendy. Tecno Camon CM measures 7.6mm in thickness as Spark 2. The only obvious difference may be Tecno Spark 2 is bigger and heavier than the Camon CM because of a more powerful battery capacity on Tecno Spark 2 which isn’t the case with Tecno Camon Cm.

Another difference is the placement of the 3.5mm audio jack. On Tecno Camon CM, it is placed at the top of the device whereas on Tecno Spark 2, you will find it at the bottom. Overall, the bottom placement is the ideal place, but note that Tecno spark 2 fake auditions place their audio jack at the top.
