So here you have it the most anticipated Camon C7 review you must read right now. Will the device live up to the camera hardware? And how well will it compete with the highly successful Camon C9?  I will leave you to judge at the end of the review.

The unit I will be reviewing is the sandstone black, it has this rough texture and is really cool. I like the feel in my hands because it is light too. Let’s go into the review proper.


Tecno Camon C7 complete review

It’s available in four fashionable colours

The TECNO Camon C7 is available in four different beautiful colours which are champagne gold, Rose gold, elegant blue and the sandstone black. So there is a colour that matches everyone’s style of fashion and every one of them is fashionable. Tecno Camon C7 is a fully accessorized device –all the necessary items are provided. Meanwhile, I am not expecting anything less since TECNO has a tradition of providing all accessories on their devices.

The Design concept

The device is slim with curvy back. It shares the same design with TECNO Camon C9, in fact, if you have seen the TECNO Camon C9 before, this is the mini version. The curvy back design makes it easier to pick up from a flat surface and is very solidly built and light in my hands. Just like the Camon C9, all the physical buttons are located at the right side.

The back camera is well designed to align with the back which is something I like so much unlike most phones that have their cameras sticking out above them-camera bump. The position of the speakers hasn’t changed, so design –wise this a Camon C9 mini.

A Smart pouch

When you put the pouch on the device, you will be presented with three screens; a calendar, battery percentage and music. So you can access your music, check time and date and monitor your battery level without having to open your phone. It’s a very functional pouch.

Light and portable

I like the fact that the TECNO Camon C7 is very light. It may not be the lightest device out there but at 142g, it feels so comfortable in both hands and pocket. It is a perfect size for those who think 5.5-inch is too big and 4.5-inch is too small

Vivid and colourful display

The screen is HD with IPS display, so texts and images are crisp and very sharp. The sharpness and vividness of the display is visibly better compared to many phones with the same display. One can hardly know if it is not full HD.

Outdoor visibility is great at maximum brightness. I could read texts and operate the device easily outside on a sunny day without having to strain my eyes

Iris scanner security

The TECNO Camon C7 also comes with eyeprint scanner just like its bigger brother; Camon C9. The eyeprint can be used to encrypt the phone and other data on the phone, it, therefore, provides additional security on the device.

Setting up the eyeprint is quite easy and it takes few seconds, pretty fun and exciting stuff but the feature is still relatively new on a mobile device and unstable. I will give it a score of 6/10. The unlock feature doesn’t work under low light, hence there is an option to use the password to unlock the device.

It comes with dual SIMS and a memory card slot

The TECNO Camon C7 is a fully dual SIMs compatible device and also an SDcard slot to extend the inbuilt storage capacity up to 128GB is provided. Two SIM cards can be used at the same time which is both 3G-enabled.

13MP Front and Back camera

The device is fitted with 13 megapixel rear and a front camera just like its bigger version, TECNO Camon C9. But we all know higher megapixel doesn’t really determine the quality of a picture but the lens being used. The TECNO Camon C7 uses a 5P graded optical lens and f/2.2 aperture diaphragm which enable more light to come into the lens for better picture production and the 13MP front-facing camera has 83° wide-angle selfie capability.

Since it is a camera-centric device, this is part many people are eager to read, and how well the device performs compares to the acclaimed Camon C9. I have been able to take pictures with the device and they are quite good maybe not as good as that of Camon C9 but overall the camera is very good.

The camera also performs well in capturing detailed images. I am impressed with the quality of the camera TECNO has been able to use on this midrange device, it’s really awesome. I put the camera to test under abundant light and low light and here are some of the camera samples from the device.

The Camera also comes with watermark (you can add Camon C7 logo and five others on your pictures) and beautify photo, which helps to enhance your photo viewing experience.


The device came running TECNO’s HiOS V1.1.0 on top of Android 6.0 marshmallow. It works fine with little or no lag switching from one app to another. It just multitasks fine.

There are a huge selection of themes including the latest ones from the ongoing Olympics in Brazil. They make the look of the icons so unique and I find myself changing from one to another.

Specifications of the device

Tecno Camon C7 comes with MediaTek 6753 quad-core processors clocked at 1.3 GHz and a Mali-T720 GPU. There is 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage which can be extended to 128GB through the MicroSD slot. The screen is 5.0-inch HD 720 * 1280 –pixel IPS panel. The battery comes in at 2500mAh and the front and back camera is 13MP like I mentioned earlier. There is Irish scanner, 3G-connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0, dual SIM and Wi-Fi direct

Major differences between the Camon C7 and Camon C9

TECNO Camon C9 TECNO Camon C7
5.5-inch screen 5.0-inch screen
Full HD IPS display HD IPS Display
3000mAh battery 2500mAh battery
Octa-core 1.3Ghz Mediatek processor Quad-core 1.3Ghz MediaTek Processor


TECNO Camon C7 is a camera-centric phone but does that make it a low performance? Definitively no. The 2GB of random access memory and the 64-bit quad-core processors ensure that all my apps run well without the bad experience of apps refreshing and crashing. Basically, it handles most of my apps very well and the inbuilt browser also does a good job, browsing with Camon C7 is very fast. So if you need a very good camera phone with decent performance, the TECNO Camon C7 won’t disappoint you.

The Battery of Camon C9

It comes with 2500mAh removable and it lasts like a normal 2500mAh battery, I don’t get to charge it every time but if you are the heavy user types, you will need to charge it every day. The device also comes with battery saving feature that helps you to preserve the battery power in case you are running low on power, during this time you can still be making and receiving calls with the device.

Final Verdict

The TECNO Camon C7 device has a very good camera just like the Camon C9. It does not in any way disappoint being called a Camon C9 mini. The battery is decent and the display is sharp and colourful.  Overall it is a good device and will suit most peoples need just fine. It is available in four different colours; champagne gold, Rose gold, elegant blue and Sandstone black. The price is between N39,000-42,000.
