The display of the Tecno Camon C9 is no joke one of the best. It sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display that offers great imagery and it is good for watching. The display and the device overally are done to amaze anyone who finds interest in it. The Tecno Camon C9 smartphone has the display resolution of 1080p (1920×1080 pixels).

In as much as we would love a better and improved display screen, resolution is one thing that indicates that a device screen is amazing and other specs also do. The Tecno Camon C9’s display being a Full HD (FHD) display is amazing. But it comes with a couple of issues relating to battery. The FHD display with a 1080p resolution has a tendency to crave for more power and this is why a 3000mAh will not last really much like it would on a device with a 720p resolution.

Tecno Mobile plus doing some innovations on the design of their phones, the Tecno Camon C9 is nicely designed to catch one’s eye. Tecno Camon C9 adds some design thing to the design of the Tecno Boom J8 that so far was one of the best designed Tecno smartphones. But all in all Tecno Camon C9 design is a premium one. The back cover is nicely done. For instance I happen to have the Sandstone Black back cover and this cover is amazing. It has great grip that cannot be found with any phone.

You will never be worried of your phone slipping out of your hand due to less grip. The sandstone black cover offers the much needed grip even if your hand was so slippery. And also some kind of good thing is that the back cover is somehow plastic and can bend easily.

Tecno Camon C9 is one such powerful smartphone. The Tecno Camon C9 runs on Android M. Android 6.0 Marshmallow on this phone is laced up with HiOS user interface. Android 6.0 Marshmallow provides so much amazing features. Power saving or management is one key feature that has been improved with every release of Android OS. Next we will be seeing Android Nougat which is the official name for the next Android OS release.

Tecno Camon C9 is powered by a 64-bit octa core processor that clocks at a frequency of 1.3GHz. The processing is done by the CPU that sports the MediaTek chipset MT6753. One thing that does make its performance a little more upped is the 2GB RAM. The 2GB RAM makes the Tecno Camon C9 more superuior to the Tecno Camon C8.

Even though performance is much more faster, there are things that does not amaze me on the Tecno Camon C9. I believe that some Google apps should not have been included in this phone. What’s are Hangouts doing in the Tecno Camon C9? Some Google apps I believe should not have been system apps. We’ve the Boom Player why should Tecno Mobile add the Play Music by Google?

To a section that is amazing with the Tecno Camon C9 is the phone’s cameras. The phone features powerful DUAL camera system. It features amazing features that come along with the phone’s camera interface. Both the primary camera and the secondary camera sports a LED flashlight that turns out to be amazing.

The primary camera is a 13MP camera that stands out tall as one of the best cameras. It has night mode that offers more light than any phone beating iPhone 6 Plus’s camera by 15% in brightness. Both night and day pictures taken with the rear camera of the Tecno Camon C9 are amazing. Anyone who has been privileged to own the Tecno Camon C9 I believe has fallen in love with the phone’s primary cameras.

I think up to that point you can agree with me that Tecno Camon C9 rear camera is amazing and will actually convince you to buy this one camera.

The secondary camera is amazing too. The secondary or front snapper is a 13MP front camera that is powerful with amazing features such as the Iris Scanning technology. Tecno Mobile has stated that this is the best camera in Africa, the second to none. And I can ascertain that, the Tecno Camon C9 front camera is one amazing snapper. All selfie lovers are high on this, not the high you will imagine but this camera got my attention.

It is a 13MP front camera that has introduced the iris scanning (eye scanning technology) technology that has not been noticed anywhere else. Not so many devices that we’ve heard of or know exist have the iris scanning technology. Tecno Camon C9 has this camera scanning your eyes to unlock. This is one of a kind security measure for locking people out of the phone. You won’t duplicate one’s eyes to use for such security matters men. This is amazing.

Girls who have not opportunity of applying make up can apply make up on their selfies or pictures using the Tecno Camon C9 camera. The image editor that is featured on Camon C9 sports these awesome and powerful make up for ladies. Get rid of acne, apply lipstick, foundation, eye liner, brusher, eye brow, eye shadow, lenses and so on. One thing that actually hit me is the breast thing that gets you to enlarge ones boobs, slim someone, twerk the chin around, whiten your teeth and all that stuff.


Storage on this phone is not that amazing but it is good. Tecno Camon C9 features a 2GB RAM that works hand in hand with the octa core processor that clocks at 1.3GHz to provide efficient performance that cannot just be realized anywhere.

The device too features a 16GB ROM (internal storage), this memory will give you some good storage space. The Tecno Camon C9’s internal storage offers you closer to 9GB free storage. The other memory is used up by system resources and system applications.


The battery on the Tecno Camon C9 like earlier mentioned is a 3000mAh. The lithium ion polymer battery would provide your some juice that you won’t easily get anywhere. With light usage, the Tecno Camon C9 will take you to more than a day. But with full use that’s doing the 4G network,having Wi-Fi hotspot on, will last you some good 5 hours. Isn’t that amazing given it is a smartphone and it is not made to last you a week on full charge.
