Coming as an entry-level smartphone, Tecno Spark Plus K9 is news worthy and surely a good contender in the low-end category of Android phones.

Speaking of other phones to consider, the Infinix Note Pro will be great alternative of the Tecno Spark Plus K9; it has a better display resolution, bigger RAM and battery. The Camon CX will be a great choice as well if you need a device with outstanding front and back cameras.
