TECNO Camon 15 Premier Review, Pros and Cons – The Camon 15 Premier is one of the most powerful smartphones in its series and simply more elegant than the other members.

TECNO’s Camon 15 series is launched with a group of members, including Camon 15 Premier and Camon 15 Air. This phone is currently available in Nigeria, about $ 240 (17,4999 INR), although there is no word from officials about the launch of this series on the global stage.
TECNO Camon 15 Premier Review
Design and Display
There are two color variants – Ice Jadeite, Opal White. Each of them has an impressive bright gradient effect in different light settings and the color scheme increases the brightness of the phone while improving the appearance of the phone. In addition, an intact fingerprint sensor next to the quad-camera configuration.
On the other hand, the display with 6.6 inches FHD+ IPS LCD technology offers an impressive viewing experience, in addition to a gorilla glass 3 covering the front panel and increasing durability. Unlike Camon 16, it did not provide an advanced level refresh rate or HDR certification.
Memory and Internal
The Camon 15 Premier comes with Mediatek MT6765V/W Helio P35 chipset under its hood and powered by an octa-core processor unit that provides speeds of up to 2.35 GHz for seemingly gaming sessions and performance-driven tasks and accompanied by a PowerVR GE8320 graphics unit.
The phone follows the Android 10 operating system on top of the HIOS 6.0 interface that has several types of customization features on it. In terms of storage, the single vanilla variant has 128 GB of internal storage with eMMC 5.1 memory support and 6GB of RAM where you can add more space via microSD card.
A set of quad cameras is introduced in the Camon 15 Premier, which comprises 64 MP main, 5 MP ultrawide angle, 2 MP depth, and QVGA lenses as its camera plate. With this configuration, you will get interesting AI-based features with 1080p video recording capability.
In addition, the 32 MP pop-up camera really offers a full-screen view to the display panel, although there are some flaws with having a pop-up camera, as the selfie port is prone to damage easily.
Battery and Others
About the battery, the 4000 mAh battery is not enough to conduct incredible photoshoots as well as watch videos. We expect 4500 mAh at least from the beginning, it is still convenient, but without fast charging, it just makes the phone less valuable.
Although, according to standards, battery life is excellent. In addition to the long battery life, there are several features, from security fingerprint scanner to accelerometer and proximity sensors.
