Also going by the name Tecno K9, the Tecno Spark Plus is the big brother of the new Spark smartphone. Tecno Spark Plus K9 offers a faster processor, more RAM and a higher capacity battery, in addition to a bigger display.

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.

Tecno Spark Plus K9 didn’t come alone, it was accompanied by Tecno Spark K7 which has lower price tag and lower features compared to its senior counterpart in the new ‘Spark’ series of phone from Tecno. See Tecno Spark phones comparison.

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.

If you happen to be tight on budget, consider Itel S31, Infinix Smart, Gretel A9, and the Spark K7. They are all budget-friendly with nice features to compliment.
