• Tecno Camon C8 Hands- on Review: Complete phone Specification and pricing

    For about ten days, A friend of mine have owned the new
    Tecno Camon C8 and it has been an
    amazing Smartphone. We unboxed the
    device last week and there’s a video on
    that in this article . Tecno Camon C8’s
    major selling point is the camera and
    we actually tested this. More on that
    later as we go deeper into the review.


    We may tend to center of our  attention particularly on
    the digital camera afterward within the article as this
    is the foremost selling factor of this gadget.

    First Impressions

    In the event you maintain this phone for the primary time,
    the first thing you notice is that it feels
    light for a 5.5³ gadget. I doesn't consider
    bulky not like different instruments of the equal
    reveal dimension out there correct now.
    Once more, the design is precise and doesn't
    seem like every other device round. I
    is also fallacious although and i stand to be

    Pros & Cons

    Camon C8 has a better battery with
    3000mAh capacity. Tecno Camon C8 is
    well designed and looks like a premium
    device. Android L plays well with a 64-
    bit processor and phone performs well
    despite sporting only a 1.3Ghz quad-
    core processor. The camera also
    produces bright pictures that still retain
    quality when zoomed to a reasonable

    What’s not so good: The 1GB RAM on
    the phone puts a limit to how you
    multitask. You’re limited to 1GB of RAM
    capacity. However, this doesn’t imply
    that the phone is slow in anyway.

    FAST AND Quick Specifications

    Design & Physical

    Tecno Camon C8 is superbly
    designed and for a Tablet, it doesn't
    think too heavy. I for my part love the
    design and just about the whole thing about it.
    The gadget has a 5.5³ Screen with
    softkeys positioned beneath the reveal. The
    entrance digital camera is on the top-left with the
    LED flash and light sensor positioned
    beside it.

    The silver colored frame adds to the
    overall beauty of the device. At first
    glance, it looks like metal but it’s
    actually plastic.The home button and
    softkeys are backlit with white LED
    light. The home button also lights up
    and blinks when there’s a notification.

    Bezels are getting thinner on
    smartphones and the general norm is
    that wide bezels are unappealing. The
    bezel on this device is minimal, it’s not
    particularly thin but very moderate.

    The back cover is removable but the
    battery isn’t. The back cover has a
    leather grain texture and looks similar
    to that on the Phantom Z .

    When you're any one who has on no account used
    a cell with a committed digital camera
    button, you may in finding yourself
    mistakenly pressing the one on the
    slash correct side of the Phone.


    This button makes it less complicated taking
    snap shots and selfies with one hand. It's
    even less difficult if you're looking to take a
    selfie with the back camera. The vigour
    button can be on the higher a part of the
    correct side.

    Again Back camera has a dual flash that
    enhances taking portraits at the hours of darkness.
    There's a snapshot proven later within the
    publish taken in pitch darkness. The 13MP
    digicam isn't simply built-in with the
    rest of the back duvet to combo in, it's
    intentionally designed to stand out.


    The removed back cover shows the
    3000mAh battery, two sim slots (mini &
    micro) and a SD card slot.

    THE Display
    The device has a 5.5″ HD screen with a
    resolution of 720×1280 and the display
    looks great. Images appear crystal clear
    and the display is enhanced by
    MiraVision engine.

    Camera & Picture Quality

    Tecno Camon C8 is a digicam telephone and
    of course, I was once ready to take some
    breathtaking graphics with superb
    exceptional. The snap shots taken nonetheless
    hold the quality and don't rapidly
    get blurry when zoomed in. The colours
    look almost normal and this under was once
    taken in wide daylight on a alternatively
    cloudy day.

    Also, the pictures in the gallery below
    were taken during the day. The fixed
    aperture is f/2.8 but the shutter speed
    varies. Click on any of them for a larger
    image opened in lightbox.




    And here’s one taken in pitch darkness
    around 11pm:

    Low Light Photography
    Challenge: Tecno Camon C8
    vs Huawei Honor 6 Plus

    Given that the only source of light was
    the dual flash, the digital camera produced a
    just right photo. Nevertheless, I used to be anticipating
    to see a night time mode to further open up
    the aperture and gradual down the shutter
    pace much more with the intention to take photos
    with out the flash. This could've been
    superb for low gentle photography when
    you pick not to use the LED flash. I
    tried this and wasn't too eager about
    the effect:


    And here is another picture taken with
    Huawei Honor 6 Plus from the same
    point right about the same time:

    As you will find, the second photo taken
    with Honor 6 Plus is extra precise. It
    used to be taken under the equal lighting
    condition with out a further camera settings.
    Anyway, each instruments aren't within the
    same cost variety and we shouldn't
    even be evaluating them, we are most effective
    doing some benchmarking right here.

    For a phone that costs around 20,000
    NGN, the camera isn’t bad. With the
    dual flash enabled, it can take some
    pretty nice photos in the dark: I mean
    in pitch darkness without a single ray
    of light. Indoors with no flash, however,
    the picture appeared noisy when the
    lighting condition is rather poor.

    The digicam has distinctive modes for
    capturing snap shots. It helps excessive
    Dynamic Imaging (HDR) which
    enhances your photographs when used at
    the proper time. There's Face magnificence
    mode for boosting faces in graphics,
    Panorama mode for taking a photograph
    covering a wide angle at the same time slowly
    moving the digicam & PIP mode that
    makes use of the rear and entrance digicam to
    produce a mixed image.

    The 5MP front camera too is flash
    enabled and allows you take pictures
    even in the dark. I took a shot in broad
    daylight outdoors and the produced
    image look a bit too sharp though.
    Anyway, I’m not a selfie freak, I was
    more interested in the primary camera
    which performed well.

    Software, Hardware &

    Tecno Camon C8 runs a customized
    version of Android Lollipop 5.0 (64-bit)
    but I’m assuming there’s a planned
    upgrade to Android 5.1. The UI is a
    customized and looks pretty good.

    Google apps are pre-installed and there
    are others like Facebook, Opera Mini,
    UC Mini, DU Speed Booster and more.

    The phone responds to touch and
    there’s no noticeable lag when
    navigating the phone. Tecno Camon C8
    has a 1.3GHz 64-bit quad-core
    processor. Theoretically, 64-bit
    processors are faster and more efficient
    than 32-bit processors and the ART
    runtime now enabled on Lollipop
    makes it all better.

    There’s a 16GB ROM out of which the
    OS takes about 5GB leaving a little over
    about 10GB left. That’s not really a
    problem as there’s a slot for external
    memory supporting up to 32GB SD

    The phone has a 1GB random access
    memory. It’s sufficient but in this age,
    huge specs sound magical and a lot of
    people are of the opinion that the
    phone should’ve come with a 2GB RAM


    Tecno Camon C8 also has the new
    proprietary music software found on
    Tecno Boom J7 , Boom Player. I tried
    comparing the sound quality of the
    speaker with that of Tecno Phantom Z
    and I was amazed. It sounded way
    better than Tecno Phantom Z and the
    quality was good.

    I should mention that I dislike the
    speaker placement though. It’s at the
    back of the device and this impairs that
    quality sound when playing music and
    the phone is lying on its back.


    The non-removable battery has a
    capacity of 3000mAh that’s more than
    enough. I was able to use it for two
    days without charging but I must
    mention that I didn’t put the phone
    through much heavy use and I did some
    optimizations here and there. Mobile
    data was always turned off when not in
    use and I always killed background
    You can exhaust a 3000mAh battery in a
    day. We all have different use pattern
    when it comes to mobile phones.
    The battery saving mode can get you
    going for hours with only 20% of
    battery left.


    Tecno Camon C8 is 3G enabled and can
    also connect to the Internet through
    WiFi. You can also use your phone as a
    WiFi hotspot and share your internet
    For file transfer, it’s bluetooth enabled
    and you can as well transfer files via
    with other HotKnot enabled MediaTek

    At the moment, the phone isn’t yet
    available in stores but the information I
    got directly from tecno Mobile suggests
    the price should be a little bit over
    20,000 NGN



    Is this a phone I would recommend?
    The short answer to that is “Yes”. The
    battery is a big plus and that fact that
    it’s not just another Kitkat phone makes
    it better. The sleek design makes it look
    like a high-end device plus the camera
    gives some great shots in daylight. If
    there’s anything missing in the phone,
    it’s a night mode feature to shoot
    pictures without the need to use LED

    However, the price tag puts it in an
    interesting position as there are devices
    in the market within the same price
    range offering higher specifications. But
    for anyone who wants a phablet that
    can capture good pictures and who
    considers that top priority, Tecno
    Camon C8 is a multimedia phone and
    it’s your best bargain in this price
