To truly enjoy mobile gaming, a player needs two things: firstly, to find games that they will enjoy and get lost in; and secondly, a smartphone that is capable of managing and enhancing the experience of playing those games, no matter how intensive their requirements are.

There’s nothing worse than a game freezing or lagging just as you reach a crucial point, or when you’re just about to dispatch that final enemy that you’ve spent so long on. Finding the right smartphone is crucial, and several features and specs contribute to TECNO’s SPARK 10 Pro offering a solid gaming performance. Here’s a summary of each of them.

A Chipset Built for Gaming

SPARK 10 Pro is powered by MediaTek’s Helio G88 processor, a chipset that is specifically designed with gaming in mind. It comes with an octa-core processor that features two Arm Cortex-A75 CPUs operating up to 2GHz, enabling quick responsive reactions. Equipped with MediaTek HyperEngine 2.0 and supercharged by the GameTurbo Algorithm from TECNO, the SPARK 10 Pro estimates lags and intelligently improves operational smoothness, providing an enjoyable and powerful gaming experience. This is complemented by the device’s 90Hz refresh rate, which translates to more frames per second for a smoother gaming performance.

Boosting Performance with Memory Fusion Technology

If your SPARK 10 Pro’s performance needs a bit of a boost due to resource heavy games, TECNO’s Memory Fusion Technology is the solution. With this, the RAM capacity of the device is increased by up to double the allotted amount. For example, 8GB of RAM can be extended up to 16GB. Such huge memory ensures more games run at a much faster rate, bringing the smoothest experience in the history of SPARK. A big differentiator with TECNO phones when compared to others is that you can choose from three Memory Fusion options compared to only one.

Activate Gamer Mode for Uninterrupted Gaming

Normally when you get calls or messages during gameplay, they disrupt the game, often at the most inconvenient of times. With Game Mode, a minimised call interface allows you to interact with the call or message without disrupting your game. With Game Mode you can also enhance the graphics of games, set time limit reminders to combat anti-gaming addiction, as well as many other useful settings. Game Mode can be pre-assigned to selected games under the game management settings, so that you don’t have to keep switching it on every time you play your favourite games. Browse through the Game Mode options by selecting Settings, Special Functions, Game Mode on your device.

Also found under the Game Mode options is Game Data, which gives you a snapshot of your gaming activity for the past week. This tracks what games you’ve played as well as how much time you’ve invested in each one.

Enough Juice for Long Gaming Sessions

Gaming marathons usually drain the battery of your phone faster, and before you know it you need to put an end to the fun in order to charge the device. SPARK 10 Pro comes with a 5000mAh battery, which promises a long-lasting battery life that keeps the device powered up even with heavy use. And if your SPARK 10 Pro does need a top-up of juice 18W fast-charging ensures that you can get back to your favourite games in no time at all.

Thousands of Games to Choose From

If you’re looking for a new game to try, SPARK 10 Pro offers two convenient avenues to explore. The first is the Google Play Store which, like all other Google Mobile Services, comes pre-installed on the phone. The second option is TECNO’s own game store, AHA Games, which also comes pre-installed on the device. This platform offers more than 15,000 free games to choose from. No matter your favourite genre of games, there’s bound to be something new for you to enjoy with either of these two app stores.
