TECNO Camon 16 Premier Unboxing & Quick Review: Should you upgrade?

Hey, what’s up guys, this is my unboxing the TECNO Camon 16 Premier, and TECNO is also launching alongside it, their iPods H2 Bluetooth Wireless Earphone which they’re giving away for free by the way, They’re giving it away for free if you pre-order this guy before the 21st of September 2020, you know TECNO wants you to pre-order because those who do pre-order get 10GB Data on any network of their choice for free.

In this blog, I’ll be unboxing and giving you guys, my initial thoughts on this post, the TECNO Camon 16 Premier and we’ll talk a bit about how it compares to its predecessor, the Camon 15 Premier, and what TECNO is trying to do here.

Unboxing TECNO Camon 16 Premier

Alright, guys so this is how the box of the Camon 16 Premier looks like, it’s pretty reminiscent of the box of the Camon 15 Premier’sbox, except that it’s slightly taller. This is also the box of the HIPOD H2 wireless headphone which we’ll be unboxing in a bit.

Inside the box, you get an inverted color mini box housing the paperwork and warranty cards and all. You also get a case that has some clipp able openings as well. Up next is the color mini itself covered paperwork shows a highlight of the specs it comes with 64 MP quad camera set has comeback and 48MP dual set up in front which we’ll cover letter, super video mode, ultra night mode, a big 6.9 inch screen and 33W fast charging Which is really jogging my memories here, only feels like I’ve seen this before. 

Hmmm. In terms of accent mode, you do a g6.9-inch phone and a USB C power cable. I know I’m not the only one seeing that it does take a lot of inspiration from the previous device under Transsion I’ve reviewed. If not the same thing. Taking that wrap off the Camon 16 Pre that it’s of course welcomed to the device. 

6.9 inches which is not small and as standard with these phones, you get a 1 minute start up and set up time. There’s nothing at the top of the device, on the right side is the volume rocker and standard with the slash power button which has start-up become the norm and trend these days, you’ve got the standard dual sim slot at the left of the device, and of course, headphone jack, mice which have, a USB C port and the single firing speaker which you’ll definitely block.

The bottom of the Camon 16 Premier is flat and it actually can stand on its own. Included as a special product is their new HiPods H2 wireless Taking the wraps off, there is a faint text and some value proposition inscriptions, we get the user manual, a normal USB cable, ear tips, and the headphone itself whose case is made out of plastic. The case of the headphone does feel sturdy and has some weight to it, which is fair and I like how the headphones are built.

Talk About Its Battery Life

TECNO claims 30 hours of battery life on standby or when it’s idle and sturdy and music playback. It should also take 2 hours to get fully charged. It’s touch sensitive and also supports instant connection to your TECNO device.

Talk About Headphone Sound Quality

The headphones did sound fine because it’s the in-ear kind, you do get some sound touch-sensitive and the quality with music was okay, just a little heavy bass but for the price of free, probably worth it.

Talk About Camera Quality

TECNO has ditched the pop-up selfie camera and straight protruded back camera array and a rear fingerprint sensor on the older Camon 15 Premier for a more subtle look now. On the back is where we get the 64MP quad-camera set up. A 64MP main lens, 8 MP ultra-wide, Dual 2MP depth, and low light sensors. The flash is a bit different; it’s a 5 point flash and not a quad flash as we’ve previously seen.

The back of the phone is polycarbonate and it kind of mimics glass because of the way it reflects the logo but its polycarbonate and I like the subtle gradient color. Speaking of color, TECNO hasn’t teased so much more than this one color option which is sort of a blue to silver gradient pattern.

Which is particularly prone to a lot of smudges. Anyway, upfront is their dual 48MP camera set up and beside it, an 8MP wide-angle camera and an actual flash upfront.

Quick explanation guys: The 64MP sensor is the Sony IMX 686 with pixel binning which stretches out a 16MP image from0.8 to 1.6, giving it a larger 64MP resolution image which is 4 times bigger. Same thing with the front camera’s 48MP, which is a 12MP pixel binned camera. 12×4 is 48. The advantage here is of course a higher resolution image, an image that lets more light in and of course, better relative quality overall.

So that’s something to note. In their respective normal modes, you’ll get 16 and 12MP images until you switch the 64MP on, or in the case of the front camera, the 48MP on You can shoot 4K on both the front and back camera even 960FPS super slow motion and lower. 

Night mode is an option too, as well as I have only had some hands-on time with this device so I’ll have to check it out later. When it comes to the display, the full view hands-on of the Camo this device will surely be missed. This ditches the pop up camera for a cutout and increases from 6.6 inches to 6.9 inches in an LCD.

Camon 16 Premier gets you up-up0Hz which you can route and to 60 or Adapt. It’s of course a 1080p display, 1080 by2460 At this point. If you’re an Infinix fan, I think you already have a Camon 16 Premier in your lineup because this is almost the Zero 8 in the Camon body. 

Quite a few already have rarities packaged differently and vice versa. This also translates into the main processing power. Here we’ve got the G90T. Their different landing processor.

Also in the RAM and storage department. 8Gb of RAM and 128GB of storage. 4,500 mAh battery which will charge up to 100% in 1 hour and 5 minutes on average. The software on here is Android 10 that comes with heavily skinned HiOS 7 and a lot of bloatware.

The fingerprint reader comes with enough, also comes with Face Unlock and yeah, it’s pretty much the whole deal. It’s something I’ll describe, in my own opinion, as a 2020 transition smartphone since it’s not the whole unique in its offering if we’re not looking at the brand name.

Hotransition’s improvement from the previous Camon series de offering now there are bigger brands like BBKthat houses Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus, and Realme which are unique but under the conglomerate.

It’s a pretty standard company practice across many industries. My blog isn’t recommendations of any smartphones but rather me sharing my practice across it. It’s definitely an improvement and its clear that a lot of things have been done and some things have been taken care of to get as much tech out for the price that this comes with.

I can’t give a full verdict but I’ll be down in the comments chatting with you guys and answering your questions. Alright, if you liked this post, Thanks again for giving your precious time and I’ll talk to you in the next one.
