If you wear a heavy armor as well, yes. Otherwise just 6+, as says Luisjoey. ;)

ok thanks friends! i use a army builder and it considers spear as a hand weapon adding +1 sv in close combat.

Most models with spears still carry their normal hand weapon. As such, even when buying a spear they can choose to use their (presumably light) armor, shield and hand weapon to gain a 4+ armor save for the entirety of a combat engagement. If, however, you choose to use your spears for that combat engagement, you will be limited to a 5+ save instead.

Not possible unless it is Saurus Warriors with the Blessed Spawning of better armour save.
