Tecno C9 Review

Tecno Mobile has been keen to improve how it presents its phones. The packaging of the C9 is really impressive. It comes in a blue box. The blue box is partly covered by a black easily retractable cover.   When you open up the box, you will find an adapter, USB cable, flip case, SIM ejector tool, user guide, warranty and other documents.

Design & Display

The Tecno Camon C9 is lighter and thinner than its predecessor, the C8.  It is only 7.35mm thick and weighs 143 grams. This makes it easy for it to fit in the pockets correctly.  Its screen size is 5.5 inches. It is a full HD screen with 1080×1920 pixels resolution. The quality of this screen is better that that of the Camon C8 (720×1280 pixels). It displays crystal clear, sharp images.

Tecno Camon C9 In Kenya


The Tecno C9 is elegant and attractive.  It looks nothing like its predecessors the Tecno Camon C8 and the Tecno Camon C5. It looks more like the Tecno Boom J8.


The Camon C9 runs on Android 6.0(Marshmallow).  This is the second Tecno Smartphone to run on the latest Android version after the Tecno W4. The Tecno HiOS UI further helps to give the C9 is a sleek appeal.

The Camon C9 processor clocks at 1.3GHz.  This octacore MediaTek MT6753(64 bit) processor is supported by 2GB of RAM.  This hardware configuration makes the smartphone capable of delivering a satisfactory performance. It is a good choice for anyone looking for smartphone that can multitask.

The internal storage space is 16GB. This space can be expanded by up to 128GB using a microSD card.  The Tecno C9 comes with an iris scanner.  This scanner allows you to unlock your phone using your eyes.


This smartphone was built with camera lovers in mind.  The Tecno Camon C9 has a 13 Megapixel rear camera and a 13 Megapixel front facing camera.  It’s no doubt the phone with the best selfie camera at the moment. Its front facing snapper has dual flash camera that captures breath taking photographs.

The back camera also has dual flash and features like autofocus and HDR. Both cameras are amazing. They capture high quality photos and videos even when you are in low light conditions.  The f/ 2.0 aperture allows more light to get into the cameras. Although the megapixel count of the back camera is the same as that on the Camon C8, its performance is better.


The capacity of the battery on the Camon C9 is 3000mAh.  This battery capacity is the same as the capacity of the battery on J8.  This battery is not removable.  This battery is “big enough” because it can easily take you through a day of heavy use.
