When Tecno announced the coming of Tecno Camon 17 pro, every phone enthusiast wouldn’t wait to be the first to place their finger on it. Tecno is the undisputed king of value-for-money smartphones. However, Tecno is not only good at saving you that extra shilling; its devices are tailored to meet the needs of its market. One of the best new releases, the Tecno Camon 17 Pro proves its quality to its users and maybe answers the question, what will be your next smartphone.
Let’s start with what we see. It’s for sure the Tecno Camon 17 Pro is a well-built smartphone. It receives praise for its extensive design and how the manufacturer has carefully laid everything most perfectly. The plastic edge of the Camon 17 holds everything perfectly in place, reduces the phone’s weight to only around 201 grams while still giving the piece an aesthetic look and touch. The display is pretty solid, but that will be discussed deeper into the review. The backside is glass, too, to prevent the smartphone from accidental fluid spills. We have a 3.5mm jack on the phone’s bottom side and a USC-C port for charging or data transfer. The smartphone also comes with the latest BlueTooth technology, Bluetooth 5. 0, which offers excellent
Under the hood are a MediaTek Helio G95 and Android 11 running parallel with a HIOS 7.6. When all these features are coupled with the large (6.8-inch) display, the Tecno Camon 17 Pro becomes undoubtedly one of the best-designed smartphones of current times.
The Camon 17 Pro comes with a large 6.8-inch screen that is perfect for media playing and gaming. Ordinary operations like texting are easy to do, but maybe with both hands due to the screen’s colossal size. The panel is an IPS LCD, with a 90Hz refresh speed and 500 nits maximum brightness. With a screen resolution of 1080×2460p and ~395ppi pixel density, gaming, and media watching are fully immersive and of impressive quality. The screen, however, doesn’t have gorilla glass protection, but you can protect it by adding a screen protector (provided).
The Tecno Camon 17 Pro features an amazing 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. That means that you can install a good number of high-end mobile applications from Google Playstore. Moreover, the 8GB RAM is crucial when it comes to gaming. Gamers, this is your ultimate dream-come-true phone. The phone’s ability to handle heavy games, like PUBG mobile, and still multitask between apps is unparalleled. The 256GB ROM is enough to store all your files, but Tecno is generous enough to add a MicroSD slot for additional storage. You can never find such kind of storage in a phone within this price range.
Tecno has improved on its cameras in their Camon 17 Pro. First, the back camera has four shooter lenses. The primary lens is rated at 64MP, the best in the game for similar-priced smartphones. Secondly, the PDAF lens gives you those quality portrait shots and videos that will spice up your socials. Moreover, the primary lens is assisted by three more lenses, an 8MP ultrawide lens, a 2MP depth sensor, and 2MP monochrome sensor.
The selfie shooter is also crystal clear, working at 48MP with a dual-LED flash. For those breathtaking selfie shots and videos, the Camon 17 has you completely covered. The rear camera shoots at 4K 30fps while the selfie does 1080p 30fps. You’ll be amazed by the Tecno Camon 17 cameras. Moreover, the smartphone has a quality video editor with good preset video transitions to assist you in making a compilation of your videos and photos.
Nothing puts a smartphone user off than a fast-dying battery. The Tecno Camon 17 Pro comes with a 5000mAh battery that, even when not perfect, gives you a load of on-screen hours.
