The successor to the Camon C9 is here. As the name suggests, the TECNO Camon CX is a selfie-centric device, as all Camon devices from TECNO are. So, let’s explain the Camon CX to you in simple, non-technical language.
The large, centralised front camera lens is easy to spot on the Camon CX. It is a 16 megapixels unit, having the same megapixel count as the rear camera. In reality, though both cameras have the same megapixel count, the rear camera still take better photographs than the selfie camera. This doesn’t mean the selfie camera is bad; it just isn’t as good as the rear one. Selfie cameras have not matured enough to being as good as the rear cameras on phones, and that is still the case here.
The TECNO Camon CX has a 5.5-inch screen and runs Android 7 Nougat. That means you have a big screen and up-to-date software that supports the latest Android apps.
What of battery? The 3,200mAh battery is good and should not have you looking for a charger every few hours. There is also fast battery charging, which means the TECNO Camon CX charges faster than many other phones. That is a good thing.
But is the storage adequate? Will you need a memory card? Internal storage space is 16GB. That is adequate for most people. But if you record and download a lot of videos and large images, it is a good idea to buy a memory card for use with the phone.
The Camon CX has a fingerprint scanner located at the back. It also supports 4G LTE networks for fast mobile internet. The Camon CX cost around N47,000 at launch.
