TECNO camon 16 premier review

TECNO camon 16 premier review

Currently the best smartphone by Tecno mobile limited this 2020. The Tecno Camon 16 Premier went on sale in the Kenyan market last month. The device is the successor to the Camon 15 Premier.

The Camon 16 Premier features a 6.9-inch LCD panel that refreshes at 90Hz. Having a high refresh display at this price point is impressive. Still, this is a bright and vibrant panel with a very modern hole-punch cutout design. This cutout houses a pair of selfie cameras, consisting of a 48-megapixel and an 8-megapixel ultrawide angle lens.

Around the back is a “four camera” system. IT packs a 64-megapixel primary camera on the rear with an f/1.89 aperture; a second 8-megapixel camera with an f/2.25 aperture; a third 2-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 aperture and a fourth 2-megapixel camera with an f/1.8 aperture.

On the front, the Tecno Camon 16 Premier packs a 48-megapixel primary camera with an f/2.2 aperture and a second 8-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture.

The main selling points are in battery, screen, cameras and performance: the 4500 mAh cell in the 16 Premier is huge and charges plenty fast using the included 33W charging brick and USB C. The 15 Premier launched with USB A, which we thought was a bummer at that time.
