1. What do we think of the Tecno Camon CM?
We were lucky enough to be among the first Nigerians to take a look at the Tecno Camon CM and see what the fuss is all about. Curious what we think about the new Tecno phone? Check out the video below!
2. Design and display
Perhaps, the strongest feature of the newest Tecno mobile phone is its impeccable design. With the Camon CM Tecno decided to explore the popular bezel-less trend and follow into the footsteps of the iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S8 and other devices that come with full screen displays.
The 5.65-inch display and the brand new 18:9 aspect ratio promise a unique viewing experience, which is exactly how the Tecno Camon CM got its name - CM stands for See More. It’s worth saying that the CM is a very elegant Tecno phone in general - with its ultra slim frame of 7.75mm, curved edges, and premium body materials, the Tecno Camon CM is a pleasure to own and to use.
On the sides and bottom of the device you will find standard connectivity features: a microUSB port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a SIM card slot, and volume and power buttons. We also need to mention the conveniently located fingerprint scanner, which is now even faster than in previous Tecno models.
The 4G capability is a nice surprise for future Tecno Camon CM owners - as long as your service provider offers 4G, you can get ready for the fastest Internet use experience of your life.
Performance features of Tecno smartphones never fail to attract as much attention as the design of the phones - Tecno is always quick to catch up with the latest trends and introduce them to their new models.
On the one hand, the specs of the Tecno Camon CM are perfectly acceptable for an upper-range budget mobile phone. On the other hand, given the CM’s outstanding design, you would expect Tecno to add features that are a bit more exciting. The Tecno Camon CM is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor that is paired with 2GB of RAM - while there is nothing wrong with those specs, they don’t match what Tecno offered with its previous models like the Tecno Phantom 8 or Tecno Phantom 5. There is an internal memory of 16GB, which doesn’t seem a lot, but, depending on your phone use, it can take a while to fill it up.
Unsurprisingly, the Tecno Camon CM comes with Android 7.0 Nougat on board, which works nicely with the processor and the RAM and, in based on our experience, has been pretty fast.
4. Camera and battery
Cameras have always been among the strongest sides of Tecno mobile phones: all of the recent bestsellers, including the Tecno Camon CX, Tecno Phantom 8, Tecno Spark K7 and Tecno Boom J8, had outstanding camera capabilities. The Tecno Camon CM doesn’t disappoint with its camera specs either: the phone comes with two 13MP cameras - one in the front and one in the back. Both cameras are LED flash-enabled, which means that finally the difference in the quality of selfies and primary camera photos is gone.
The battery characteristics are crucial to any Nigerian mobile phone user, which is why we’d never skip this part in our review. Many of the latest Tecno phones came equipped with batteries with giant capacity, but, we’re afraid that’s not the case with the Tecno Camon CM. The CM’s 3000mAh battery is average at best, and there no word yet on whether it will have the fast charging technology.
5. Pricing and availability
The Tecno Camon CM has been officially launched on January 9th, 2018 in the Ikeja City Mall and it won’t be long before you can finally own the device - it will become available in stores starting from January 15th. The price of the new Tecno phone is ₦47,000, which is more than fair for its amazing design and competitive features. There’s no doubt that the Tecno Camon CM will be a huge hit among its buyers, just like any other Tecno phone has been so far!
