In a bid to retain it’s spot as Africa’s top selling smartphone brand, Tecno have continuously released smartphones with credible specs and affordable prices.
The Tecno Camon C8 is not an exception. As this phone has managed to pack good specs and it is quite affordable.
A fairly stylish design, large screen size for your viewing pleasure, average size RAM and memory capacity, good processors, good battery life and the highlight of the device is the super amazing camera.
Design of Tecno Camon C8
Tecno Camon C8 boasts of a fairly nice design. Not in anyway near the designs of HTC One M9, Galaxy S6 or even the design of the Infinix Note 2. However, like I said earlier, the design is fairly stylish and the sturdy back makes for a firm grip round the device.
The Tecno Camon C8 has a 5.5 inches screen, well rounded edges and a sturdy rear cover. It is available in four beautiful colours; black, dark blue, amber gold and white.
The Tecno Camon C8 has a physical body size of 8.8mm.
Right in front of the phone, you will find 5MP front facing camera and the notification light. While the square home button is found down the screen.
Along the rounded edges, you will find the volume button by the left, the standby/power button and the camera shortcut button by the right, the headphone jack at the top while at the bottom you will find the microUSB port.
The back of the phone is beautifully designed with a black rectangular glass and a red strip. This houses the massive 13MP camera and the dual LED flash. While the speaker is located near the bottom part of the rear.
In all, the Camon C8 doesn’t have that aesthetic finish. But, I believe more effort was put into making the phone more performance-oriented than stylish.

Tecno Camon C8 comes fitted with a 5.5 inch capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels.

Camera Quality of Tecno Camon C8
The camera quality of this smartphone has raised much controversy among smartphone users. Few align with Tecno in their claim that the phone shoots better pictures than Iphone 6 while others disagree with the company.
However, the camera of the phone is awesome.
The Tecno Camon C8 comes fitted with an amazing rear camera of 13MP. With amazing features such as autofocus, dual LED flash, and the ability to capture HD videos.
According to Tecno, the Camon C8’s camera lens imitates the lens of the human eye. Thus, you are assured of vibrant pictures even in dimly lit environment
The front camera of 5MP equally captures crisp selfies even in low light environment.

My Opinion on Tecno Camon C8
This phone is largely over-hyped. There is nothing spectacular or amazingly unusual about the phone I must say.
Though, the camera is very good, other features of the phone are rather in the mid-end region.
If you are a camera phone enthusiast but lack the financial power to get the likes of Galaxy S6 and Iphone 6s, then the Tecno Camon C8 is your next best alternative.
However, you should be ready to endure some compromise. Anyway, it is available at a very affordable price.
