Tecno Camon 20 Premier Smartphone Review

Tecno Camon 20 Premier Smartphone Review

Picking up the Camon 20 Premier, you’ll start to get its “premiumness”. The back is made from TECNO’s new Magic Skin technology featuring the Puzzle Deconstructionist Design. We get lychee-pattern leather for the back and nano-crystalline ceramic for the camera island. The design implements 20 irregular ribs for the back pattern.

The back panel feels really good to the touch and you might want to ditch the included case. The sides are glossy and flat. The phone is a mid-range 5G smartphone that offers a lot of features for its price. It comes in two different colours; Dark Welkins and Serenity Blue.

The front is a 6.67-inch AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch sampling rate. The screen is beautiful and the dual stereo speakers add to a more immersive multimedia experience. This is especially when consuming content on the phone. It has an in-display fingerprint sensor. The display is bright and vibrant, and the high refresh rate makes scrolling and gaming smooth and fluid.

The Camon 20 Premier comes with Android 13 and HiOS 13, which is a customized version of Android with some additional features and apps. It is powered by Dimensity 8050 chipset paired with Mali-G77 MC9 GPU. Additionally, it comes with 8GB of RAM and upto 8GB virtual RAM. It has 512GB of onboard storage or at least mine came in that.

The phone has a triple rear camera setup consisting of a 108MP wide main camera, a 2MP depth camera, and a QVGA camera.  The cameras can capture good photos in daylight, but they may suffer from noise and low details in low-light conditions. The video recording is limited to 1080p@30fps for both the rear and front cameras. For the front camera, we have a 32MP selfie camera and dual LED flash. Video recording is capped at 4K 30fps for the rear cameras and 1440p(2K) 30fps for the selfie camera.

The Camon 20 Premier comes with a 5000 mAh battery that supports 33W wired charging. Its life is impressive and can last for more than a day on moderate usage. The fast charging can top up the battery quickly, but it may generate some heat. However, it doesn’t have the wireless charging input, which kind of leaves it behind compared to other modern smartphones.

Its price ranges from UGX1700,000 to UGX2,100,000 depending on where you’re purchasing it from. It is a good option for those who want a large display, a big battery, and ample storage. However, it may not be suitable for those who want better performance, camera quality, or software experience.

We will come back with a detailed review.
