Okay so it’s been about a week since I got my TECNO Camon CX and as i promised in my unboxing post, It’s time for a full review.
If you haven’t seen the unboxing post, you can check it out here
Now, time to review the TECNO Camon CX.
The Camon CX or Camon C10, however you’ll like to call it is the latest and the best member so far of the Camon family from TECNO mobile. First of all, if you’re a regular on any social media platform, you would’ve seen people waxing lyrically about this device. I promise you, they are absolutely right to. Before I delve deeper, let me shoot down the rumors we all heard a while back about the phone having about 4 cameras (It doesn’t) and 2 front facing cameras with individual flashes (it doesn’t either). However, the device does have the dual flash right in front, so that part wasn’t a hoax and honestly it’s one of the best things about the CX.
With a Camon CX, there’s no such thing as low light for your selfies. Even in the darkest of rooms, selfies taken with a CX would still look as bright as ever, add that to the 16MP capabilities of the front facing camera and what you get is amazing selfies.
Now let’s jump to the specs, cos that’s important right?
The TECNO Camon CX comes with
- 5.5-inch FHD IPS Touch Display
- 1.5GHz octa-core
- Android 7.0 (Nougat) with HiOS
- 2GB RAM and 16GB Storage with support for memory card up to 128GB
- Dual 16MP Rear Camera with dualflash and 16MP Front Camera with ringflash
- 4G LTE (up to 150Mbps)
- Fingerprint Sensor (Rear)
- 3200 mAh Battery with Fast Charging
That part of the review is for the geeks, now for the rest..
Let’s talk about the beautiful design on the CX. I personally think the design team at TECNO mobile did wonderfully well on this device, compare it to its predecessor the C9 and it’s almost like they were released 10 years apart.
For a 5.5 inch phone, this device fits perfectly in your palm and the smart cover which is included in the pack look perfect.
On the Battery life, which is very important for us Nigerians, the CX battery is very solid. For context, i played Drake’s entire 22-track More Life album while i was actively on twitter and by the time I was done, the phone only moved from 100% to 96%.
Also, unlike the C9 there are no physical buttons on the phone just the on screen buttons. With it’s 2GB RAM, the CX isn’t the most powerful TECNO device but its 16MP front camera with dual flash and it’s 16MP rear camera with Quad flash makes up for it. The picture quality on this phone is immaculate.
The Camon CX will retail at between 65,000 to 80,000 and for that price it’s one of the best devices in the market and worth every penny.
