Unboxing And First Impression Of The Tecno Camon CX

share on:

The new Tecno Camon CX was launched today in Nairobi, Kenya and we just got ours, can you feel our excitement?

In the coming days, we’ll release a proper review on the phone but right now, we can’t wait to get to the unboxing, so here we go!



First look at the case, and you can already see a couple benefits, getting the Camon CX means you get 1GB data free and a socialite pack free for 11 months as soon as you activate a glo sim. Also, if you put in a registered MTN sim, you get 100% data bonus for the first 6 months, pretty cool if you ask us.

That’s not all, if your Tecno Camon CX screen unfortunately cracks within the first three months of purchase, you get a free replacement.



Now, let’s see what’s inside the box..



You’re greeted with your Camon device in all it’s glory as soon as you open up your phone. Lifting the phone reveals all the accessories included.



The Tecno Camon CX comes with a pair of headphones, a smart flip case, a usb adapter, a user manual and a warrant card.







The phone itself is a lot lighter than it looks and pretty handy as well. You can notice the front facing flash (hello late night peng selfies) as well as the fingerprint scanner at the back of the phone. All the physical buttons are located on the right side of the phone just like its predecessors.

First Impression

A simple ‘Wow’ would describe how we feel after this unboxing, Wow. Wow seems like the perfect way to describe this device. However for the sake of this post, we’ll be breaking down why we are wow’d by the Camon CX.

First off, plastered all over the phone is a sign that indicates that the secondary (front-facing) camera would be packing 16MP AND a flash light. Why? Why not? We don’t need selfie ring lights anymore, your phone comes with it’s own flash for that perfect selfie lighting.

Given how rough and rugged Lagos can be, it’s good to know we can at least get a cracked screen fixed for free withing the first 3 months.

The phone is beautiful to look at, and feels even more amazing and perfect to hold, can be easily operated with one hand (which is always a plus) and the plug in headsets are amazing. We are super impressed.


We will release a full review soon enough but so far we’re hugely impressed.

Questions are welcome in the comments section and you can send in what you would like to know about the Camon CX in the detailed review.

  1. I guess it’s ok, but its somewhat below my expectations. I wanted a helio p10 processor at 2.0Ghz, and 3GB ram. I guess in terms of performance i feel like it’s a let down, but all that aside it looks really good and the fingerprint scanner is a good touch.

  2. The CX is a real upgrade and I feel it could easily be their flagship phone, so great a device. I hope to get it soon

  3. Camon CX has surpassed my expectations, Tecno can be very proud of this very phone. Besides the camera being so fantastic, it has a very good battery, a sleek design, the phone is a beauty, runs on Android 7.0 Nougat. It’s just a phone that you have to get.
