Smartphone makers Tecno came up with their latest installment – the camon c9, successor to the camon c8. The c9 has been making waves across the nation with customers giving it high ratings.
But the phone is OVER-RATED. If the c9 is your dream phone, this post may leave you disappointed.
2GB RAM IS INSUFFICIENT
How can a late 2016 phone be carrying a 2GB ram, that’s absurd. My own smartphone came with 3GB ram- this is a 2015 made phone. More ram means more optimality. In this respect, the camon c9 has failed. Phones made in late 2016 come with 4GB of ram. Check out the Elephone p9000, Meizu, xiaomi Redmi note 3, these phones comfortably compete with the likes of Samsung galaxy s7 and note 7, with respect to ram size. What do I need a 2GB ram phone for? Definitely not in this dispensation.
NO FINGERPRINT SENSOR
Fingerprint functionality has been a main stay in smartphones since 2015. The UMI Iron, ulephone power, are examples of 2015 phones sporting an even advanced fingerprint sensor. But the recent 2016 Tecno camon c9 has none. This is a major failure, one that cannot be overlooked. If you are gonna get the c9, just know that you’d be using a 2014 speced phone. Disappointed yet?
The Tecno c9 comes with 1.7GHz Octa-core CPU, MediaTek MT6582 chipset, Mali-400MP2 GPU. This processor maybe fast in its own right, but it’s no where near new. The latest 2016 smartphones come with the recent “Helio P10” or even the ‘Helio p20’ processors. Some phones even have ‘deca-cores’ (10 cores) as compared to octa-cores (8 cores). Phones such as elephone p9000, Xiami Redmi note 3, Meizu MX5, and many more come with newest processors,with faster clocking speeds. The Tecno camon c9 doesn’t measure up to expectation in this aspect.
NO GORILLA GLASS PROTECTION
screen protectors are a major smartphone requirements. The galaxy s7 and note7 carry the “corning gorilla glass 5”. The ulephone power possess “corning gorilla glass 3”. Most recent 2016 smartphones come with gorilla glass screens but the Tecno camon c9 has none. If you have the c9, know you are not protected incase it falls. This is a major disadvantage.
3000mAh, NOT ENOUGH!!! NOT AT ALL.
For heavy phone users like me, 3000mAh is a big No-No. Battery life is my major look-out in a smartphone. The Tecno camon c9 also fails in this respect. My present smartphone carries a 6000mAh battery capacity and last me as much as I would want.
The major bright side in the Tecno c9 is the camera sensor, possessing a 13MP front camera with flash is a big thumbs up afterall.
If you are a Tecno fan, I hate to burst your bubbles. But am just offering useful information- constructive criticism. There are better phones out there, open your eyes.
