Wow! (Washes Hands)…. Ok Ok Ok you guys are trying to bribe me abi? Me I don’t care oo, if you’re a whack phone I will tell my readers, shikena! Look at the carton, they said getting the Camon CX means you get 1GB data free and a socialite pack free for 11 months as soon as you activate a glo sim. Also, if you put in a registered MTN sim, you get 100% data bonus for the first 6 months, now this is what I call pure bribe. (I’m preparing to browse free for the next 11 months shaa, hope you’re with me?)

Another bribe is on the way, they said if your Tecno Camon CX screen unfortunately cracks within the first three months of purchase, you get a free replacement. (I am not praying my own spoils shaa). Let’s see the Tecno Camon CX Unboxing.

This is what I call baby fresh a wonder phone! Just that 16mp camera that I’m seeing in front of it is making me want to kiss the phone snap an instagram selfie.

Say hello to the phone of the year!!!

Ok, let’s see the accessories it came with.

The Tecno Camon CX comes with a pair of headphones, a smart flip case, a usb adapter, a user manual and a warrant card (in case phone malfunctions within warranty period, this is your passport to replacement/free repair).

Abeg, let me touch this phone before they touch it for me..

Ok the phone has a big screen size. I don’t particularly like large screen phones cos it seems bulky but a 5.5 inch Tecno Camon CX is perfect for me. Not too big, not too small. Gotcha!

Oh, how I love slim phones! Compared with how big the phone looks, I promise you it doesn’t have much weight when compared with other phones of the same size.

Ok, so this wasn’t the exact back side we expected. The one we projected in this post looks a lot more like that of the iphone and would have actually been preferred, I mean, who doesn’t like the iphone’s sleek design? But on the bright side, I would say this one ain’t bad. It’s actually very crisp and friendly and I’m tempted not to put this phone inside it’s flip case.


But wait! Did anyone notice the dual flash on the front camera? Night should come first, I sure want to test this out. The other buttons are also located at the right side of the phone just as you dey see am. I’ve learnt many things on this Tecno Camon CX Unboxing shaa.

Ok, let’s give you the key specifications of the Camon CX smartphone so that you’ll know what you’re in for.

Key Specifications of the Camon CX

  • 5.5-inch FHD IPS Touch Display
  • 1.5GHz octa-core
  • Android 7.0 (Nougat) with HiOS (smiles in french)
  • 2GB RAM and 16GB Storage with support for memory card up to 128GB (Ahrg, why not 3GB RAM nah, which one is 16GB ROM again? #sad)
  • Dual 16MP Rear Camera with dualflash and 16MP Front Camera with ringflash (You’re my 1 and only)
  • 4G LTE (up to 150Mbps)
  • Fingerprint Sensor (Rear)
  • 3200 mAh Battery with Fast Charging (Eeeh, we know! It’s not too bad shaa)


Ok, it’s time to round off and tell you what is what from what we’ve observed about the Tecno Camon CX unboxing we just did. We’re doing this based on our first impressions of the phone. Ok… go..

Display: The 5.5 inch FHD IPS Touchscreen is dope and so is everything about the display of the Camon CX.

Processor: The 1.5 GHz processor is ok to me shaa, but still they should have raised it to 2.0 just like the Phantom 6 unless they intentionally did it shaa, so none of Tecno phones could compete with the Phantom 6.

Operating System: Perfect (No other words explain it better)

Memory: 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM are ok shaa but still not comparable to that of the Phantom 6 which spots a 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM. Still it’s ok.

Camera: Perfect is an understatement (If there is anything more than perfect, that’s what the camera is for now. Even the iphone 7 camera no near am, quote me anywhere)

Battery: Not too awesome, especially for a heavy user (but e try shaa)

Other miscellaneous features: They’re just okay.

So far so good. Thank you for staying with me all the way to this point. Shows you have faith in me and I’ll never let you down. Kudos to Tecno for releasing this magnificent gadget. We’re hugely impressed with it.
