TECNO Camon C9 Selfie Test [Indoor]

Posted by

You have seen the specifications and photographs, performance tests, and 4G LTE tests of the TECNO Camon C9. TECNo markets it strongly for its front-facing 13 megapixel camera, so for my first Camon C9 selfie test, I took a few photos indoors. The photographs were taken within a metre of an open window around 3.30 in the afternoon. Have a look at the photos:

Mr. Mo’s Verdict

The Camon C9 selfie camera is very prominent on the front of the device. It has the largest front-facing camera lens I have seen on any phone, and I was hoping that for once we would have pictures that were close to matching the quality of photos that we have been used from rear cameras on phones. Unfortunately, these do not meet that expectation.

In my opinion, they are still not close to being as good as the photographs produced by the rear camera. Despite a handful of brands pushing their phones as having great selfie cameras, none has yet been able to pull off the feat.

Considering how poor front-facing cameras on phones have been, the above selfies from the Camon C9’s front-facing camera are not bad. But they just do not excite me after all the hype. Can we make that drastic change happen in the next iteration of the Camon series, TECNO?

Your Verdict?

I will love to hear from you. It is possible that you disagree with my verdict. You have seen the selfies. What do you think of them?


  1. This goes on to show that, its not ALL about the megapixel. I was expecting the quality to match the rear camera since they have the same mp size. but nope.

  2. disappointed… not as sharp as 13megapixel. closely with my c8 5mp. the only enhancement is the viewing angles.

  3. And to think the Camon C9’s unique selling point is the 13MP front camera, and yet the selfie pics are this mediocre? So, the slogan ‘Selfie Game Changer’ is an empty one after all. At N50K price and with the pics Mr. Mo has taken, Camon C9 is overpriced.
    It’s a shame, TECNO that you want to be taking Nigerians for a ride.
    By the way, Mr. Mo, how has the so-called Eyeprint feature of the phone performed?

  4. I’ve seen other pictures with it (you can check twitter to see too, just search #C9ja or just check for Camon C9 tweets) and they meet expectation. Maybe you dont hv good hand for snapping

  5. Techno C9 is the best…but I got problem with the expected battery time per day, how long it last per day(batteey time of use, 12hours or 15hours or 18 hours?).
