Camon 15 comes with lots of interesting features, bearing in mind the Camon phone series are very popular among Nigerians. Moreover, they’re quite affordable and offer some of the best specs for a fair price tag, including a decent camera set-up.
The current pandemic has definitely changed the way we work, and the way money are spent. Due to the increased Independence on smartphones for business, and school lessons, it’s a heightened sense of application on phone brand makers as they have to come up with a cheaper shortcoming that’ll suit every enthusiast’s budget, battery life, camera set-up, display, and design, as well as sound quality. Interestingly, the Chinese-based mobile brand never fails to deliver on these aspects.
The Tecno Camon phone Series are widely regarded because of their decent camera setups which pack advanced camera technology normally found in standalone cameras making it an ideal smartphone for photography lovers.
Like anyone else, I have been wondering what this Camon 15 is all about apart from the decent cameras. In this Tecno Camon 15 review, I’ll highlight the full specifications, features, and price in Nigeria including all you’ve to know before going for this smartphone.
Tecno Camon 15: Design
Out of the box, the Tecno Camon 15 comes in an extremely gorgeous design and perfect color combinations. The phone comes in a combination of two colors, bringing out more beauty thanks to the glossy finish on the backplate especially when light reflects on it.
The Tecno Camon 15 looks stylish and feels sturdy owing to the glass front, plastic rear, along with the plastic flame compacted. The design is further complemented by the featured dark Jade color. And to wrap the design up, the Camon 15 weighs just 196g, giving you peace of mind when at your hands or traveling.
Unfortunately, the rear camera module still struct with that rectangular camera set-up similar to that of Camon 12. This means the phone’s rear plate has four cameras and a quad-LED flash all stocked up in a dark rectangular camera bump. This is the same design as that of Camon 11 and 12. This design was first seen on the iPhone 11, and since then, other smartphone brands have picked it quite too. This is the design enthusiasts are fed up with, as we would love to see something more stylish than the rectangular module.
Right beside the camera is a trustworthy rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. It works reliably and can respond in not more than 2 seconds. Unfortunately, rear fingerprints are outdated as new smartphones are integrated with either a side-mounted fingerprint or an in-display scanner.
Moving down the fingerprint scanner is an inscribed Camon 15 logo followed by Tecno brand’s logo showing it’s the OEM behind this technological innovation.
A glance at the side reveals a bare top, in contrast to a power button, and volume rocker on the right side, and then a SIM card slot on the left. On the bottom part of the device is a speaker grill, accompanied by a USB port, and headphone jack. The phone comes in Shoal Gold, Fascinating Purple, and Jade color options.
Tecno Camon 15: Display
Coming to the front, is the expansive 6.6-inches HD+ display. Unfortunately, a 7-inches display would have been better but with this price tag, it’s not bad but enthusiasts would love to see more. That aside, the screen is bright enough for indoor usage, but you’ll struggle to navigate through the phone when outside.
Games and movies won’t be a problem, thanks to the 720 × 1200 screen resolution. The Tecno Camon 15 has a dot-hole notch on the top left of the device housing the 16-MP selfie camera, and that’s the only interruption you’re going to see on the phone, making it an ideal choice of smartphone for never-notchers.
The phone’s flat screen is the perfect one for you as the screen does not hide even the thinnest bezels with curves, making customers continue loving this phone. Overall, there are lots of exciting things to talk about on this Camon 15. It has lots of features that punches above its price tag.
Tecno Camon 15: Camera
Just like we earlier said, the Tecno Camon 15 is a camera centered device and it absolutely does the job well. The Camon 15 quad-camera comes with different shooting modes such as AI camera, Night mode, Bokeh, Beauty, Panorama, Portrait, AR Shot, and Ultra-wide selfie camera.
However, the camera specs of this device are the main talking point. Tecno really gave us more than what we expected on this smartphone’s camera. The rectangular camera module houses a quad-camera set-up consisting of a 48 MP primary camera, 2MP, 2MP, and QVGA sensor, along with a dual-LED flash. It’s also cubbed with a 16MP selfie camera that offers smarter, crisp, and clear photos.
The Camon 15 cameras are capable of recording videos at 1080p @30fps, thanks to the presence of 8× ultra-clear photography.
Tecno Camon 15: Performance and Battery Capacity
There are lots of things to love about this Camon 15. The dark theme mode not only prevents light irritation on your eyes but also saves your battery. You can also activate a blue light filter christened Eyecare from the phone’s display settings. Also, you can go ahead and customize the system’s fonts, all depending on how you want to use your Camon 15 device.
Under the hood, the Tecno Camon 15 runs on Mediatek Helio P22 (12 nm) chipset which is complemented by a PowerVR GE8320 Graphics. With this third tear processor, the Tecno Camon 15 runs apps averagely. You’ll not experience slow down or logs except when playing high-end games, or RAM hungry apps. The phone is further implemented by a 4GB RAM and 64GB inbuilt storage which can be expanded (up to 256GB) via a dedicated SDcard.
The Tecno Camon 15 rocks HiOS 6.0 based Android v10 operating system. This is a very good upgrade as some of the latest devices launched earlier this year still runs on Android v8 or v9.
The Tecno Camon 15 battery life is very excellent. With the massive 5000mAh battery capacity, this is very huge compared to Camon 15 Premier 4000mAh battery. The 5000mAh battery can last up to 9 hours on moderate usage. Unfortunately, the device doesn’t come with fast charging capability. It’ll take close to 3 hours of constant charging before it’ll reach 100%.
Tecno Camon 15: Price and Availability
The Tecno Camon 15 is available in all markets and slots across Nigeria for ₦64,000 ($158). You can also get one through any leading e-commerce store available worldwide. With this price tag, you’re surely getting a fare value of what you paid for.
