Phantom 9 Gaming Review

Camon 12 Pro Gaming review


Both the Tecno Camon 12 Pro and Phantom 9 packs a non-removable Li-Ion 3,500 mAh battery with fast charging support.


The Tecno Camon 12 Pro costs around N61,500 while the Phantom 9 goes for N77,500. Based on this comparison, the Phantom 9 features better display and chipset.

But honestly, from the performance side of things, there is no difference between these two phones.

In fact, the Camon 12 Pro might be able to handle games better than the Phantom due to its IMG PowerVR GE8320 GPU.

Looking at the specs and price of both phones, I will gladly pick the Camon 12 Pro over the Phantom.
