    • Ekpa, Stephen Monday says:

      This is spark 4 Air, that’s the reason the battery is small. The main Spark 4 has 4000mAh battery.

  6. Sirian says:

    I changed to Tecno for one reason: Battery. I have been having an L8 which was incredible at battery life. Recently I got a Spark 3 Pro and honestly am very, very disappointed. It’s a Camera Phone, yes, but how will u use the Camera when the battery is down! I charge it overnight, switch it on at 7 hrs and by at most 18 hrs the battery is down. Very annoying.

    Tecno u r doing a great job but as Erasmus says, battery life keeps going down. Pls do something abt it. Otws great work!!!

    • Ekpa, Stephen Monday says:

      Hi… Like I replied the other comments above, the air versions of most Tecno Phones has reduced specs, which also reduce the battery capacity, of course, except for the Tecno Pouvoir 3 Air which retained it 5000mah and the Camon 12 Air also retaining it 4000mAh battery. For the Spark 4 Air… There’s just 3000mAh battery. But the standard spark 4 has 4000mAh battery.

    • Moses mukaka says:

      The spark 3 pro it’s quite a good Device but it’s not battery phone unless you switch to spark power or pourvoir 3 plus

  7. Jibrin musa says:

    That is to say i will go for spark4 be that. Because of the battery capacity and vogue.

  8. Ukashatu says:

  10. Ezenwa says:

    battery too poor
    I bought mine and at the back was written 6000mah

    • Ekpa, Stephen Monday says:

      • Egbo ozioma says:

      • Moses mukuka says:

        The phone has a removable battery which has a capacity of 3000 amh so upon purchasing a phone they will give u another spare battery which is also 3000amh which will give it 6000amh all together

      • Ekpa, Stephen Monday says:

  21. Tumwine Peter Simon says:

    It’s not a bad phone but for all the techno phones I have held, this is one of the worst batteries. It doesn’t last for long and the extra battery is also not good I will need to buy a new battery yet I bought this phone in a techno shop
