It’s almost 6 months since the arrival of the Camon 15 series. The camera-centric phone we all praised for offering a superior camera setup including a Super Night feature TAIVOS™ and a long battery life.
After two months of the Camon 15 Mobile Experience, this is what we call a Long Term Review. If you are just seeing this, kindly click here to get abreast with what you missed.
Software and Hardware
The phone boasts of a 48MP ultra quad rear camera with a quad flash and a 16MP front camera with dual flash, 6.6" dot-in IPS led capacity touchscreen display, glass front, plastic back, plastic frame, a non-removable 5000 mAH battery, a rear fingerprint scanner and 64GB internal storage with a 4GB RAM.
It also has a 5.0 Bluetooth, HiOS 6.0.1 skin based on Android 10, Mediatek MT6762 Helio P22 chipset, Octo-core 2.0 GHz Cortex -A53 CPU and a PowerVR GE8320 GPU among other features.
For the nerds that want to get a bit technical, this is for you as compared to Camon 12. Please click here!
Camera Setup and Experience
The Camon 15 series is all about photography prowess. Its quad-camera consists of a 2MP AI Bokeh Effect camera, 48MP main Al Scene Detention/ Super HDR camera, 2MP Secondary camera solely for the purpose of extreme close-up shots, and an Ultra Night Lens - TAIVOS™（TECNO Artificial Intelligence Vision Optimization Solution) which is equipped with quad flash on the rear camera module which is fearless of the dark environment, enabling you to take bright and clear photos.
The front camera is a 16MP AI camera with Dual Flash, which enhances clarity, high-quality lighting effect, and real-time image optimization to offer you the best selfie pictures.
Broadly speaking, the Camon 15 is a pretty accurate shooter, with features meant for your everyday life. (For tips and tricks to take better pictures on Camon 15, click here)
The verdict (Conclusion)
Camon 15 is an affordable must-have photography powerhouse. When it comes to performance and battery, it offers impressions that are better than most in terms of features and raw specs. It has a very unique recognizable design, and a nice finish.
The phone has a solid feel which is easier on the hand, sleek, and runs effectively when watching movies or playing games.
Since Camon 15 comes with HiOS 6.0.1, it would have been better if it's HiOS Launcher internal theme was 4.0 instead of the classic HiOS theme; not forgetting Phone Master too. Although I know this would be fixed in the future, it would have been nicer if it came preinstalled.
Secondly, although the charging capability of the phone is not slow, I would hope to see an improvement in the future.
Furthermore, HiTheme is doing a pretty good job when it comes to wallpapers, but the preinstalled Camon 15 wallpaper wasn't much to write home about. An improvement with preinstalled wallpapers would be recommended.
