Tecno Spark 10 Pro in for review-in South Africa

I received a pleasant surprise when the doorbell rang, and a courier delivered the Tecno Spark 10 Pro phone to my house. The phone I received was the captivating Starry Black version, which is one of the options available in South Africa, along with the elegant Pearl White variant.

Speaking of the packaging, it is a relatively small box, yet it contains more items than you would find from mainstream manufacturers. (The phone has a plastic screen protector pre-installed, by the way). There is a transparent silicone case, a charger, a USB A to C cable, a SIM ejector and – surprise! – a wired headset.

The TECNO SPARK 10 Pro is an outstanding smartphone that offers a wide range of features at an affordable price. Recently introduced to the South African market by TECNO, this device deserves a closer look as we delve into its design, performance, camera capabilities, battery life, and overall user experience.
