Tecno camon c9 wowed us with a 13-megapixel front and back camera and not just that it came with an LED flash at both ends that is beside the front and back camera.

The front Camera

All who have actually used the Tecno Camon c9 front camera has one thing to say it has a 13-megapixel but to be since it does not wow after all the hype but it is still worth the buy.

Here is a picture of an unedited Tecno Camon c9 picture taken with the front camera

The Back Camera

The back camera is actually great. I must say it is worth all the hype and not just that it is good it performance on low light is actually great I must confess. The true test of camera strength always is on low light and it passed ……. well I must say it has an LED flash at both ends.

Well for selfie girls and boys if you need a really good phone with low price and a good camera then I guess it will be Tecno Camon C9.


The Tecno Camon c9 is strongly and solidly designed, even when it’s on you hand you have that confidence that the phone is very strong. The back is slightly curved, and I must say the black sandstone colored version is actually the best color you can wish for because of its good body finishing and has a good feel when carried around. But I must say it’s not the sleekest of the Tecno phones.

As to the audio jack it comes with a 3.5mm audio port at the top of the phone, and it also has a volume and power buttons on the right side as you would suspect. It has a microUSB port at the bottom of the phone, best of all it has a camera shutter at the bottom right corner.

The usual Tecno trademark is imprinted at the back of phone just below the camera and the LED flash. if you pull the back off it will open up to the battery, sim slot and memory slot location respectively.


It comes with a 2G Ram, 1.3GHz processor and a Mali-T720 graphic processor to help handle the graphic processing. Am kind of disappointed with the 1.3GHz processor cos they have produced a lot of phones with that processor range but for the price the phone is worth the performance but don’t expect top performance as to first generation phones. It will handle all the daily activities without hassles but that is it.

On the benchmark scale the phone scores are

  1. AnTuTu Benchmark: 38,767
  2. Quadrant Benchmark: 22,291
  3. Geek 3 Benchmark: 630 Single-Core; 2,949 Multi-Core


It comes with a 3000mAh battery, you can finish with 20% a whole day, on 3G and on Wi-Fi it would last a whole day, and that is it but I don’t really enjoy that short range but I know on their next update something would be done about it.


It comes with an Andriod 6.0 (Marshmallow), it does not keep any application in memory and it also come with a custom tecno interface and a HiOS. Which for me I think is the only drawback in the phone software design because it kind of does not allow the marshmallow to show its full potential such as lack of quick settings, lack of lock screen notifications and some many other marshmallow features.

I must say they wanted to wow the market with the introduction of this technology into their phone and they did. This is a feature that most smart phones don’t have.

The Tecno Camon c9 comes with an iris scanner which is used as an unlock protocol in place of password or drawing of pattern or entering of pin. I must say it really actually work because it only allows only the person who’s eye pattern is in the phone to unlock the phone. So I must say James Bond tech is close to us now.


  1. Eyeprint Scanner to unlock phone, apps, payments etc
  2. Android 6.0 Marshmallow (With HiOS on top)
  3. 13MP AF Back camera with flash
  4. 13MP front camera with flash
  5. Supports 4G/LTE networks
  6. 5.5 inch Full HD screen
  7. 1.3GHz Octa Core Processor
  8. 2GB RAM
  9. 16GB Internal storage.



The phone did not really live up to the hype in all aspect, I must say , the phone Is really a good and exciting one to have. For the selfie girls and boys, I must say the camera Is worth trying out. for battery life i would rate it on the average.

A stolid and nice build, will I recommend the phone for someone? yes I will,

Will I recommend it to a heavy user? not really, you will have to read this to make a decision.
