About 30 minutes ago, I jumped awake and wondered why. Usually, I coast out of my sleep. I jump when something prompts it. There was a sound coming from somewhere outside the house. I lay there in the sweltering heat listening and eventually the sound went away. But I was awake now and going back to sleep would be a tall order. So, I picked up my phone and found myself strolling through the streets of the phone section of Nairaland. It was there that I saw a topic titled, “Why The Tecno Camon CM Is Better Than The Pixel 2 XL”.
I needed no psychological tests to know that someone has been smoking a bad strain of weed. And it has to be the kind of weed that makes you say and do the dumbest things ever. Like hop around on one leg and pretend to be a chimpanzee. Or face an oncoming trailer and be warning the driver that you will jam him if he doesn’t swerve away from you. It has to be that horrible kind of weed.
Because there is no way in heaven, on earth, in limbo, in purgatory, or in hell that the Camon CM or any Camon in existence right now is anywhere close to being half as good as Google Pixel 2 XL.
Yes; TECNO’s marketers often get ahead of themselves. I suspect that they belong to the group of marketers who will not make heaven. Perhaps every now and then at a departmental meeting, the marketing lead tells them that weed is great for confidence and so great for telling stories.
“If you smoke weed, you will be invincible on the field,” s/he tells the enthusiastic team. “You will be able to convince an Eskimo to buy ice from you!” And someone decided to give it a try but ended up purchasing the worst strain of the substance.
The result is this absurd claim that Camon CM is better than Pixel 2 XL.
Ladies and gentlemen, if you want the best camera phone in the world right now and you can afford it, go buy the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL. It is the undisputed best camera phone produced in 2017. Also consider iPhone X/8/8 Plus, Samsung’s flagship Galaxy series, LG V30/G6 and others in that class.
TECNO’s own current flagship, the Phantom 8, is not even in the same class as the above-listed top dogs in terms of photography, and even that is miles better than the Camon CM.
Do not listen to people who smoke bad weed. Not only might you end up with buyer’s remorse after buying their whacked recommendation, you just might end up smoking whatever brand of weed they are smoking and start talking like nuts are loose in your head too.
If interested in the best camera phones, we have the authoritative list of the best camera phones in the market right now. You can take that list to the bank.
