Tecno has unleashed its top gun here in Kenya to take on the likes of Nokia 5.3 and Samsung Galaxy A31, but does it have enough firepower to outbid current segment leaders? We done our ground work to help our readers decide if the latest Tecno Camon 15 Premier deserves a place in their pocket. To start off, the brand has gained a respectable following within Kenyan households and you’d probably see it with at least one in ten of Nairobians.
Tecno Camon 15 premier comes with a 64Megapixels Sony Camera
Tecno unleashed one of its flashiest launch event in recent times with the likes of Wizkid gracing the successful online launch. As its main selling point, the latest Tecno Camon 15 premier is equipped with a 64MP Sony sensor that on paper promises to take stunning imagery. But we all know the number of pixels is just part of the bigger picture. We’ve got the likes of Google Pixels and iPhones having less than half of the Tecno Camon 15 premier’s pixels but take photos that are miles away in comparison.
The manufacturer promises to bring industry level innovations with cutting edge technology that will compete favorably with industry leaders. While there’s too much talk on the success of the so called first online product launch in Africa, which gave fans a real-time hands-on experience and DEMO of what they can achieve with a smartphone camera the manufacturer calls powerful. The handset has a lot going for its design as well and is expected to cause riveting amongst its customer base.
Let’s take a look at the 6.6 inches display with FHD+ resolution
When I go out looking for my next smartphone, the first place I look is usually the display – it’s the main component we interact with most and it has to be super. The Tecno Camon 15 premier has a large display panel with minimal bezels that has become an industry standard nowadays. Its as the manufacturer describes wider, clearer, and more colorful visual experience but nowhere close to those equipped with an AMOLED panel. It covers close to 91.2% of the front though something you’d only find in premium devices in the days of yore.
While Tecno has made a big deal out of the Sony sensor, we’ll focus on something else for a change unless there’s a proven side by side hands review, we can’t tell just how much photos on the Camon 15 premier will pop.
We like the fact that Teco opted for a popping selfie shooter to save on some real estate. When the selfies shooter is activated, the front camera will “POP-UP” from the body, and the 32MP Clear Lens will be ready to capture your shining moments.
128GB ROM + 6GB RAM, 4000mAh long-lasting battery, Powerful Performance
There’s a 128GB ROM that offers more space to store your data, this is really nice considering most devices still come with 32GB or 64GB space. So, you won’t need to frequently clean-up to get more storage and you are as well not limited with the number of applications to install. Underneath there’s also 6GB worth of RAM that should support a stable and highly efficient performance. Multitasking and gaming has become faster and smoother. The 4000mAh battery should be enough for a full.
