Tecno Camon C9 Review




A week ago, Tecno Mobile Uganda launched their latest addition to their smartphone range; the Camon C9, at a meet up with journalists at Tecno Mobile head offices. The Camon C9 is Tecno Mobile’s tune up of the already impressive Camon C8, and the smartphone is enjoying considerable success elsewhere in Africa, notably Nigeria and Kenya.



The C8 was sweet; oh my! Yet Tecno Mobile has deliberately chosen to slap us in the face with the even sweeter C9. As you ponder on your next smartphone buy, keep the C9 atop your list of options; it is that good.



Camon is an acronym for ‘Camera On’ and this makes the C9 the ninja of the Camon series. Tecno Mobile has fitted the Camon C9 with a 13MP rear camera and has upped the ante on the front/selfie camera from 5MP of the C8 to a whooping 13MP. The C9 boasts of a LED flash both front and back. Exposure compensation for the camera also points to extra brightness to bring you night time camera exploits to life. Besides the Beautify 2.0 plugin, the C9’s camera comes with a 120 degrees Panoramic mode and excellent Quick Snap sensitivity at just 0.1 seconds which eliminates blur in moments with motion.




The C9 runs on a HIOS V1.0-Android 6.0 hybrid, with an Octa-core processor with 2GB RAM that enables undeterred multi tasking and data processing. The C9 supports the best networks there is; GPRS/EDGE, WCDMA/LTE with vast band coverage.



The Camon C9 has 5.5 inch touch screen that will blow your mind with colourful splashes of 1920*1080 HD resolution; making for pocket size TV screen for all your video needs. Its 3000AmH battery has been refined further allowing for 10 hours of standby power, what could go wrong? Watch out for its 16GB internal storage, expandable Micro SD storage of up to 128G.




Talking design, the C9 is novelty and its 153 x 76.4 x 10.35 mm dimensions make it smaller than the Camon C8. Tecno has ditched the block build of the C8 for a slimmer, curved back finish. The smooth metal plus polycarbonate design for the C9 is available 3 colours; champagne gold, elegant blue and sandstone black.




When it comes to security, Camon C9 is one of a kind; equipped with high tech eyeball recognition to unlock your phone. No joke guys, this is a spy level upgrade! Unlocking your phone with retinal scanners will make you feel like James Bond. Now the kids can forget about stealing your phone for Candy Crush sagas.




The C9 is the best budget smartphone on the market today selling for 560,000 Uganda shillings. Get this phone at all Tecno Mobile outlets countrywide.
