Tecno Camon C8


The cameras are the primary specifications of the Tecno Camon C9 and the Tecno Camon C8. They both feed and sell based on their cameras. The cameras are the chief selling feature that is why they are dubbed camera phones; selfie centric or photographic phones.

Tecno Camon C9 has got a camera system that has been upgraded. The Camon C9 is believed by the company to be the best camera designed phone that would cost the price it does. It actaually is the first smartphone in Africa to feature iris scanning capabilities enhancing security. Tecno Camon C9 sports 13MP primary camera that features DUAL LED flashlight just like the Tecno Camon C8 but the main difference comes in, in the selfie section.

The Camon C9 beats Camon C8 by the fact that the Tecno Camon C9’s front snapper has a 13MP sensor and this camera is better than the camera of iPhone 6 Plus and is bet to be the best camera we’ve in Africa; front camera. The camera is centrally placed and has iris scanning technology.

The Camon C8 on the other hand is not bad but has a much smaller front snapper. With just a 5MP sensor; Camon C8 sits really down the ladder with Camon C9 at the top. Lacks the iris scanning technology and is much relied on for selfies and some video calling only.


I would say that when it comes to performance Tecno Camon C8 still won’t catch up with the Tecno Camon C9. Why do I say so? Tecno Camon C9 features a 2GB RAM which the counterpart the Tecno Camon C8 only has a 1GB RAM. Performance is mainly determined by the processor type and the amount of storage allocated mainly to this operation. Both Camon C9 and Camon C8 both feature 64 bit octa core processors and they work efficiently but on the Camon C8, the 1GB RAM is the main reason it doesn’t perform to the bar as the Camon C9.

Camon C9 runs on Android M which is much more efficient than the Android Lollipop that comes with Camon C8 out-of-box. Even though through updates the Tecno Camon C8 has received Marshmallow it is different with Camon C9 since C9’s Android M is out-of-box but the one Camon C8 runs on is OTA update.


Tecno Camon C9 and Tecno Camon C8 both feature the same amount of battery that’s the 3000mAh battery. Both are non-removable or built in if that is the case. They are lithium ion built battery, using lithium ion technology to store power. There is a small difference when it comes to both phone’s battery or power management. Tecno Camon C9 supports quick charge technology and would not last you very long to charge the Camon C9 to 100%. The Tecno Camon C8 will actually last you so much time to charge to 100%. This is the main difference when it comes to battery management.


The two phone when it comes to pricing they are not so much different. They both cost some more about above 10K. Tecno Camon C9 would go for Kshs. 17,999/- whereas the Tecno Camon C8 will go for around Kshs. 13,999/-. Depending on the specifications the pricing is just right as it should be.
