  1. It is quite funny how talk about image stabilization and noise. The CX is good for those who are does not know much about camera. Just like most tecno and infinix the problem is not about the pixel. So even wen tecno says it 16mp an 8mp iPhone camera will still produce stunning images than.Can the phone record 4k video? It is crap comparing it with iPhone 7 camera. Gionee m5 camera is still better the than the CX camera
