The TECNO Camon series smartphones have to be one of TECNO Mobile best smartphones made. The Camon 15 succeeding the Camon 12, even though doesn’t have much with upgrades in specs and features, it still gives consumers an exciting smartphone experience. But is it worth the price?
Recapping, TECNO Mobile partnered with MTN Uganda earlier this month to unveil three Camon 15’s in the county. The Camon’s are: Camon 15, Camon 15 Air, and Camon 15 Premier – priced at RRP UGX688,000, UGX625,000 and UGX1,025,000 respectively. PC Tech Magazine managed to acquire one of the Camon’s, the TECNO Camon 15 for customer experience; hands-on and review.
If you’re one those consumers that love bigger displays, good-performance cameras, long lasting battery life and bigger storage then the Camon 15 would work for you.
A display with a size above 6-inches should be considered a good display. The Camon 15 comes with a 6.6-inch display which gives you more content viewership. The side bezels were cut by 0.5-inch from the predecessor to produce such display. In the entertainment mode it takes on the whole screen giving you the theater-mode experience at your hands.
The camera one of the phones selling points will draw you to buying the phone. The photos produced from the cameras are good, better at least than the predecessor; the Camon 12. This is because TECNO hyped the megapixels of the camera .i.e. the rear camera, to a quad camera setup. It comes with 48MP primary + 2MP wise + 2MP depth + QVGA sensors that produce stunning photos worth sharing. On the other hand the selfie mode has a 16MP punch-hole sensor. For a mid-ranger 16MP isn’t bad for a phone itself, it does give nice and awesome selfies and with modes such as beautification modes, and more enchantment modes makes it worth getting.
It also comes down to the battery life of the phone. Battery life is always a look out key aspect when buying a phone. This is because you don’t a phone with a weaker battery. When a battery drains out fast prompts charging and over charging does spoil the battery, and today’s phones that come with non-removable batteries will see you spending more on phones.
The Camon 15 has a 5,000mAh battery. Upgraded from 4,000mAh, TECNO wants to give its consumers more power that won’t prompt charging all the time. Having used the phone for now two weeks, the battery is no disappointing.
The performance of the phone in general is all good, with less hangs that come as a result of running heavy apps that consume a lot of your RAM.
Therefore, in its price range RRP UGX688,000 the phone should be worth its price. You can get its smaller version the Camon 15 Air at UGX625,000 and if your pockets are large you could Premier at UGX1,025,000.
