Tecno is primarily geared towards developing countries and this is the reason it is taking an entirely different approach to smartphones than other manufacturers. The Camon series has big screens and batteries with excellent camera performance and excellent performance on the low-cost. The cost is even lower because of pre-installed partners apps and baked-in advertisements within the interface. To some users, it may be a major issue while for others, it’s the trade-off they’d love to take.
In fact, the Camon 18 Premier has a couple of flagship-worthy features like the large AMOLED screen that runs at 120Hz There’s 256GB of base storage, an enormous battery with fast charging of 33W as well as an impressive camera in the back. The primary camera is the standard 64MP snapper we’ve seen a number of times. However, there’s 8 megapixel telephoto cameras that has five times optical zoom that is long-range and 12-megapixel ultrawide camera with stabilized gimbal.

Its Tecno Camon 18 Premier is certainly not ideal. The Helio G96 chip is fine however gaming could require some modifications to your graphics if you’re looking for a smooth experience. Although the screen supports up to 120fps it is unlikely that any game could be able to reach that speed.’
Tecno Camon 18 Premier Main Camera
What we’re really missing is stereo speakers as well as some form of protection against the elements . A basic protection against splashes would be great. The camera likely ate up much of the budget therefore we’ll try not to hold the omissions against the current Premier.
Tecno Camon 18 Premier unboxed
The Tecno phones are packed with rich retail bundles as well they offer a variety of bundles, and the Camon 18 Premier is no other. The retail box comes with numerous accessories, starting by a 33W power adapter as well as an 3.3A-rated USB-powered cable.
The phone also has a lovely pair of earphones that have microphones that end on the 3.5mm connector. Additionally, you will find an ultra-soft transparent case which not only covers the phone, but also its camera’s island too.
The Camon 18 Premier arrives with a protective film that is thin over the screen. Although it might not be as tough as a glass shield with tempered edges however it’s certainly not as cheap and smudge-proof like the screens we’ve seen installed on more well-known phones.
