Tecno Spark 5 Vs Nokia 2.3 Which on gives you value for money?

Nokia 2.3

TECNO recently announced the availability for the new Spark 5 in Kenya retailing at Ksh 13,999.

The TECNO Spark 5 is an upgrade of the Spark 4 and spots almost similar features to its predecessor. The major upgrade that Tecno has included in the Spark 5 is a 5000mAh battery, Android 10 out of the box, and a quad-rear camera sensor. The device also comes in a 6.6-inch display.

Nokia 2.3 on the other hand was launched by HMD Global in December 2019. The device features large 6.2” HD+ screen, 4000mAh battery, dedicated google assistant button.

On face value, Nokia 2.3 features are no match for the Tecno spark 5. However, HMD prides itself on the 3 years’ monthly security updates and two year OS updates that according to the manufacturer, enable your phone get better over time and that investment is future-proofed.
