Tecno Camon C8 is one of the most amazing phones ever produced by Tecno Mobile. This phone was designed with photograph lovers in mind. It is a perfect device for anyone who loves taking pictures. It features a 13MP back camera and a 5MP front camera. With new phones being released into the Kenyan market every single month, Tecno had no choice but to design an awesome camera phone to keep up with the competition.
Design & Display
The Tecno Camon C8 is slightly curved and has thin bezels around its display. It has a leather back and silver side frames. It’s easy to think that the frame is metallic. However, a careful look at it will help you notice that it is plastic.
Its 5.5 inch 720x 1280 pixels, 267ppi display is awesome. It displays sharp crystal clear images. The front side camera has an LED flashlight right next to it. The soft keys and home button are located below the display. These keys are revealed when the backlight is on. The power button is on the right hand side of the Camon C8. A dedicated camera button is also on the right hand side. This button allows you to use your camera without having to navigate through the phone’s User interface. The USB charging port is at the bottom and the earphone jack is at the top side.
On the back side., you will instantly notice its 13MP primary camera with dual LED flash. You will be able to see its non-removable 3000mAh battery when you remove the leather back from the device.
The Tecno Camon C8 is a dual SIM phone. You cause either a normal SIM or a micro SIM. It also has a micro SD port for those who want to expand its memory.
Clearly, Tecno Mobile resisted the temptation of using cheap plastic when making this phone.
The Camon C8 is powered by 1.3GHz quadcore processor. The powerful processor is supported by 1GB of RAM. These specifications make it more than capable of handling graphic intensive games and other apps. This phone allows the user to multitask without a lag. It runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop. You can easily customize the use interface to fit your preferences.
The Mediatek-MT6735 64-bit chipset is a more powerful and efficient chipset than 32 bit chipsets used in many phones. It reduces the dependency on RAM size. This explains why Tecno mobile opted for 1GB RAM instead of 2GB or more for this flagship device.
The Tecno Camon C8 has 16GB internal memory. The Android OS takes up around 5GB and leaves around 10GB to the user.
The speaker is on the back side. You wall have to put the face of the device down to get maximum sound from the speaker. The Boom player makes it easy for the user to enjoy the music from the music library.
As stated earlier, this phone has been built with people who love taking pictures in mind. Tecno mobile did put a lot of effort to create a camera that beats the cameras of its competitors. The dual flash on its 13MP back camera produces a powerful light that makes it possible for the user to take clear shots at night or in low light conditions. There are tons of options that make using the camera a fun experience. You will be able to take a photo using voice command and gesture. The shutter speed, ISO, focus and other options set themselves depending on the lighting conditions.
The Camon C8’s front camera comes with LED flash. Keep in mind the fact that the flash-light might irritate your eyes when you are taking a selfie. This front camera LED flash is one of this phone’s selling points.
