Design and build quality

Tecno Camon i has a crowd pleasing design and is available in a midnight black color,blue and gold. It has a plastic body but feels good on hands. The corners are rounded and the side edges smooth. The device is ergonomic with a tall boy design which is in trend now. The antenna lines are at the edges of the top and bottom. The rear has the 13-megapixel rear camera and 5P lens at the top corner and fingerprint sensor in the middle, with the Tecno branding a little below. The bottom houses the speaker grille, microusb port and a mic. A audio jack occupies the lonely spot at the top. The right side has the power button and the volume button and they are easy to access and offers a good tactile feedback. A SIM tray nests on the left side. Many would appreciate the fact it can accommodate two SIM and has a dedicated microSD card slot to expand the storage further.


The front has the on-screen navigation buttons at the chin and there is the 13MP selfie camera, LED flash, earpiece grille and sensors at the forehead. The bezels are very less as is the design trend now. That brings us to the display. The Tecno Camon i has a 5.65-inch IPS display with a HD+ (1440 x 720p ) resolution. The full-view display with the 18:9 aspect ration cuts no corners when it comes to the in-thing in the mobile world now. The display is bright and vivid with good viewing angles and sunlight legibility. The display settings also has a eye care mode for comfortable use at night and darker areas.


Tecno Camon i runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with their own HiOS UI topping it. There is no app drawer. The HiUI brings few changes and additions to the stock android. The home page has a power widget that give you the estimated usage time left and the power remaining and also has a quick toggle to shift to ultra power mode, if your battery juice is running low. You can choose to remove the widget, if you want to and alternatively opt to enable the ultra low power mode from the power saving management settings. There are few add-on features in the micro intelligence settings like flip to music, gesture actions for music control, option to silence the incoming call by covering the screen, three finger screenshot and gesture actions to launch apps directly.

Fingerprint Sensor

The rear placed fingerprint sensor responds good with good accuracy and is fairly fast in unlocking the phone. It supports app lock and also includes some touch gestures on the sensor area to take photo and accept incoming calls.


Tecno Camon i is powered by MediaTek MT6735 chipset clocked at 1.3Ghz paired with a 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The processor may not be a sizzler but can take you through the daily usual tasks for most. If you are a gamer though, this might be a bit of an underpeformer when it comes to handling heavy games. Otherwise, it works well for most tasks. It supports split screen. Call quality is good and the speaker is loud enough too. Camon i lacks gyroscope sensor, so if you intend to play VR apps you might be disappointed.


  • 13MP Rear Camera with ƒ/2.0 ,5P lens and Quad LED flash.
  • 13MP Front Camera with ƒ/2.0 ,5P lens,Front LED flash and Screen flash.
Where Camon i sizzles though is on its camera performance. For a phone priced under Rs 10,000 in India it delivers and handles better image capabilities. I was quiet surprised by the quality of the images and more surprised with the low-light performance which most phones in this segment struggles. Day light pictures come very well while the low-light performance is one of the best I have seen in this category.The camera app has beauty, panaroma and HDR modes and can also take square pictures. The quad-LED flash is one of the better flash I have seen, usually I hate flash but this one is more manageable. Selfies come good too. So the camera is an all-rounder and excels in almost all conditions. [gallery link="file" columns="5" ids="13076,13077,13078,13079,13080,13081,13082,13083,13084,13085" orderby="rand"]

Battery life

Tecno Camon i is equipped with a 3050mAh battery, so what can you expect with this pack? It can easily sail through 18 hours to 1 day depends on your usage pattern.


Tecno Camon i is priced at Rs 8,999 in India and more importantly it is available across 30,000 stores pan-India. At this price, the Camon i is a value for money offering with a good display and a commendable best in the class camera performance.]]>
