Tecno Camon 15 Review
The Tecno Camon 15 smartphone is a representative of the new generation of the Camon line, known for last year's releases of Camon 12 and Camon 12 Air, and continues the tradition of camera-focused devices that will not empty the wallet.
The new Camon 15 offers a number of parameters that attract attention. Case and design The Camon 15 is made in the style of a unibody - a monolithic case with tightly fitting parts.
On the back panel in the upper left corner is a rectangular block of quad-camera. A little lower in the center is the fingerprint sensor. The physical volume and power keys are on the right side.
The SIM card tray is located on the opposite side. By the way, Camon 15 is a two-seater with a separate slot for a microSD card. The microUSB port, stereo speakers and 3.5mm audio jack are at the bottom. The front camera is located in the hole in the right corner, and the phone's memory has a wallpaper that allows you to mask it. In general, for the 6.6-inch phone, the Camon 15 looks compact and powerful. It has a small frame, except for the bottom, which is much larger than others.
One of the most popular tasks of smartphones today is to take good photos in the "point and shoot" mode. To do this, the Camon 15 has a main camera of 48 megapixels. It works well in good lighting and can experience problems in poor lighting. The situation in some cases can be saved by special night modes, which can be selected in the camera menu. The gadget has a 2-megapixel macro camera for capturing tiny objects.
The focal length of its lens allows you to take pictures of a subject from a distance of 2 cm. The phone also has a 2-megapixel wide-angle lens. In addition to the main camera, the smartphone has a depth sensor camera with QVGA resolution, so that the processor can accurately separate the main subject in the frame from the background and take pictures with a bokeh effect. The front camera of the smartphone has a 16-megapixel resolution sensor with a built-in dual LED flash.
Camon 15 screen - 6.6 inches with HD + resolution (720x1600 pixels), dot density - 266 ppi. The display is made by IPS technology and offers rich colors and large viewing angles. On the Tecno website, the description of the phone states that the built-in dark theme allows you to save battery power, but this statement is true only for AMOLED-screens. IPS displays have another advantage - they put less strain on the eyes due to the lack of flicker (PWM).
Camon 15 runs Android 10 with its own HiOS 6 shell. The hardware is represented by an octa-core Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of flash memory.
Photos, audio and video can also be placed on a microSD. The power of the processor and the amount of RAM is enough for normal office work: messengers, mail, browser. Also, this processor allows you to play games on a smartphone, but on the "heavy" top toys, it can quickly overheat and significantly reduce its performance.
The autonomy of the smartphone is at a decent level thanks to the battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh. This figure allows you not to worry about the charge during the day, even with intensive use of the device. You can charge the device up to 18 watts - the appropriate adapter is included.
As a result
Well, the Camon 15 is not a flagship, but its features offer enough comfort for typical daily use of a smartphone. Among its advantages, in addition to the affordable price, it is worth noting the presence of an even more common microUSB connector, a 5000 mAh battery and a practical plastic case. The smartphone also comes with headphones and a protective case. And Camon 15 has a 1-year and 1-month warranty.
