Many people today are so busy, they simply might not have time to go to the gym for their workouts. Gyms are notorious for charging a lot of money and requesting annual contracts which may be followed by cancellations fees etc. I personally think that gyms are a waste of money; in fact 80% of people who buy a gym membership end up not going anyway.
In this instructable, I will teach you how to perform workouts at home without any equipment. The body is the best equipment you need in most cases (especially if you are just starting).Step 1: Planning Out Your Routine.
You do not want to workout the same body part every day or every 2 days. Your body will need to recover, so you can perform exercises which will work your shoulders and biceps on Monday, do some cardio on Tuesday, do Yoga on wednesday, legs on Thursday, etc.
This way individual body parts can recover the muscle mass and be ready to start getting torn up again the following week. I always suggest 1 or 2 rest days per week. Some people take just a Sunday off and some workout 2 days on and 1 day off. It really depends on your personal goals and abilities.
Step 2: Exercises to Work Your Upper Body.
There are a number of different upper body exercise you can perform without any equipment. Check out the list below and mix and match them in your routine:
Push ups: My favorite exercise. In fact you can do push ups so many different ways: regular, military, diamond, wide, declined, etc. Ladies, don't be afraid of the push up!
Chair Dips: Another great exercise to target the triceps area (in the back of the arms).
Plank: Just like a push up, this exercise also has a lot of variations. You can simply hold a plank position for a minute, you can do walk walkups, plank walkouts, planks with twists, etc.
Arm Circles: This may sound easy, but after a while of doing arm circles your muscles will start to get sore. It's also a great way to stretch out your muscles.
Step 3: Exercises to Work Your Legs.
Don't forget those legs. It seems like many people focus so much on other body parts while walking around with puny legs. Legs have the biggest muscles in the body, so if you start working them out then you will actually start burning way more calories undefined
Here are some of the exercises for legs:
Squats: yeah baby! You can do slow and steady squats or speed squats to get your heart rate up. You can also do a jump squat to get work on your legs and to get your heart rate up.
Lunges: Lunging will get your legs burning! Lunges can be done in a number of different ways, a regular lunger, reverse lunge, step up lunge (you can use a chair to step onto), side lunge.
Wall Sit: You can start doing wall sits for 10 seconds at a time and work yourself up to a minute or more. Make sure not to touch your legs with your hands when you are performing these and have your knees bend at a 90 degree angle.
Jumping Jacks: Good ol' jumping jacks, remember doing those in middle school?
Calf Raises: Calf is another body part that doesn't get much attention. Do these slowly or quickly for different results.
Bicycles: This is not just a leg exercise, you may feel it in your stomach as well. Do regular bicycles and reverse bicycles for ultimate workout.
Step 4: Exercises to Work Your Core.
Core exercises are not all about sit ups, in fact I don't really like doing sit ups because they don't do much.
Pick from the exercise below:
Plank: although variations of planking is great for arms, it sure is amazing for the core.
V-Bend: This is an awesome exercise. You can do reps or hold it for extended time to feel the burn.
Scissors: If you've never done this exercise, then you are in for a surprise! It will burn so good! Make sure to hold your reps for 3 to 4 seconds before you switch your legs.
Burpees!: Enough said.. look up what a Burpee looks like and get going!! Add a oush up in between to work on your arms.
Step 5: Combination Exercises for a Full Body Workout.
Full body exercises are a great way to workout multiple muscle groups at the same time. It will not only save time, but it will also burn more calories. The key to performing full body exercises is to do them intensely with a little down time.. only 20-30 seconds between sets (and to rehydrate).
Here are some of the full body exercises:
Burpees! This is by far is the best full body exercise.
Squat Jumps: This exercise does not only work your legs, but you are also burning calories by jumping up in the air.
Dumbbell Squats or Lunges: While performing leg exercises you are also working your arms. You can use water bottles instead of dumbbells.
Push Up With Single Leg Raise: This exercise works on arms as well as thighs and buttocks.
Overhead Medicine Ball Slams: This exercise works arms, back, shoulders, and even thighs. Although I concentrate on no equipment exercise, I added this one in here because it's such as awesome exercise and you would only need to get one medicineball and incorporate it into many other exercises at home.
Step 6: Safety Rant.Always make sure to stretch before and after your workouts. Your muscles need to be loosened up so that you do not injure yourself.
If you are using weights at home, make sure not to start small and increase as you go. This also goes for using the body; for example, if you cannot do a regular push up, go to your knees so that you are pushing less weight. As you get stronger, you will be able to increase the weight or the intensity during your workouts. Don't try to be a hero and end up hurting yourself.#StayHome#KeepFit

Retro games have always had a certain charm. They evoke nostalgia and make us think of the old days when graphics didn’t matter as much as they do now. If you’re looking to get your hands dirty with a bit of nostalgic gaming, we have the best retro games currently available on Android.
BEAMDOG GAMES (6 Titles): Beamdog is a developer on Google Play. They’ve remastered four retro games. The available titles include Baldur’s Gate, Baldur’s Gate II, Planescape: Torment, Icewind Dale, Neverwinter Nights, and Seige of Dragonspear. These are all early 2000’s-style RPGs with vast world, deep story lines, and tons of game play. Each one can easily go for four or five dozen hours. The UI feels cramped on smaller displays. These games are best on larger displays like big phones or tablets. Otherwise, these are all classics. They run 3,725 naira each.
BEAT COP: Beat Cop is a good retro Noir game set in the 1980’s. You play as Jack Kelly, a disgraced former detective on the beat cop grind. You were framed for murder, your new boss is horrible, and your wife is a money sucking leech. The player grapples with these obstacles while trying to find out who framed them for murder. The graphics help set the old school ambiance and the mechanics are also engaging. Full version cost 1,900 naira.
CASTLEVANIA: Symphony of the night: Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is a port of the popular PlayStation game from 1997. The game is a faithful port of the original classic with some modern add-ons. They include full compatibility with game controllers along with on-screen controls, various achievements, support for six languages, and a new continue feature. The game plays like classic Castlevania. It’s an arcade-platformer with some hack-and-slash and horror elements. It’s an excellent overall translation and it’s only 1,100 naira with no additional in-app purchases or ads.
CROSSY ROAD: Crossy Road is an iconic retro mobile game. It’s this generation’s version of Frogger. You bounce a chicken across various roads and streams. You must also avoid obstacles and employ proper timing. It’s a simple arcade game that is both family friendly and actually fun. There are also a variety of unlockable characters as well as Android TV support. It hits all of the right buttons. The same developers also did Pac-Man 256 and Shooty Skies.
DOTEMU GAMES: Dotemu is a developer on Google Play with some truly excellent retro style games. Many of them are ports of popular old games like Ys Chronicles 1 and 2, R-Type I and II, and some older arcade classics like Double Dragon, Another World, and I Have No Mouth. The games seem to be mostly RPG, arcade, adventure, and horror with some beat ’em ups thrown in for good measure. The most expensive game in Dotemu’s lineup cost 3,650 naira on google playstore with no in-app purchases or ads.
EVOLAND 1 & 2: Evoland 1 and 2 are modern mobile games with retro gaming elements. It’s difficult to express their genre. Both games encompass a variety of styles, graphical designs, and game play mechanics. That includes RPG, fighter, top-down shooter, trading card game, platformer, hack-and-slash, and others. These are great games for people who just like old styles but aren’t married to a specific type or genre of game. The first one is fairly inexpensive. Evoland 2 is newer and, thus, more expensive by comparison. Both are excellent games. Doom and Destiny Advanced is another excellent, original, retro-style JRPG.
KAIRASOFT GAMES: Kairosoft is yet another developer on Google Play. Most of their games have a retro theme and feel to them. Some of the more popular games include Grand Prix Story 2, Ninja Village, Game Dev Story, and The Manga Works. All the games have varying mechanics. However, they do all share a simulation element. In Grand Prix Story 2, you race cars, but you also run a race car business. In Ninja Village, you do combat for regional dominance, but you also much build the ninja village. You see where this is going. The graphics are charming and the game play typically isn’t difficult to learn. Some of the games are freemium, others are pay-once titles.
MINECRAFT: Minecraft is a classic. The decidedly retro graphics have long been a part of the game’s charm. It also features tons of stuff to craft, kill, explore, and do. Updates in 2017 gave the game cross-platform support. You can play the same worlds on your computer as you can on your Xbox and mobile versions. The games are all basically the same at this point. The game runs for 1,495 naira. With in-app purchase of character skins & Minecraft Realms add-ons.
OLD SCHOOL RUNESCAPE: Old School RuneScape is, well, RuneScape. This game originally launched in 2001 and that makes it retro by today’s standards. It’s the full game without any compromises. The subscription costs, in-world activities, and all of that is identical to the web version. There is a free version with a bunch of stuff to do. However, the subscription makes the world about three times larger with more skills, more quests, and a ton of extra bank slots. It’s one of the few MMORPGs that doesn’t rely on freemium tactics to earn a buck.
OK GOLF: OK Golf is reminiscent of old arcade golf games. This one is about as retro arcade as it gets on mobile for golf, anyway. You drag back and release to launch the ball. There are no clubs or anything like that to distract from the experience. The game also features unlockable courses, secret areas, and challenges. There is even an online multiplayer mode and that adds a bit of modern flair to a classic premise. This one is inexpensive at 1,060 naira. There are no additional in-app purchases or advertisements.
RAW FURY: Raw Fury is a developer on Google Play with some truly entertaining retro games. The developer has a few decent titles, including Kathy Rain (point-and-click adventure), Whispers of the Machine (Sci-Fi Noir, mysery), Dandara (platformer/Metroidvania), and Bad North: Jotunn Edition (RTS). Each game is surprisingly well done and are excellent examples of retro games in each one’s genre. They also represent something a little different from the usual array of arcade fighters and platformers that usually dominate lists like this.
SEGA FOREVER GAMES: SEGA has a bunch of retro games in their SEGA Forever collection. Some of the titles include Sonic the Hedgehog, Altered Beast, Golden Axe, Phantasy Star II, Ristar, Comix Zone, Kid Chameleon, and several others. Each game has their own sets of mechanics. However, they all share a common theme: they’re old SEGA games. You can play each one for free with ads. There is an optional 700 naira purchase for removing advertisements. It’s a veritable treasure trove of retro games goodness.
SLAYAWAY CAMP & FRIDAY THE 13th: Slayaway Camp and Friday the 13th are horror games with retro puzzle elements. Slayaway Camp features tons of gore, unlockable characters, 140 levels, and a hair metal-inspired soundtrack. Friday the 13th features 100 levels, all of the various varieties of Jason Vorhees, tons of gore, and more. Both games are by the same developer. The gore would be worrisome if it weren’t the same style of graphics as Minecraft. It helps take the edge off of how truly brutal these games can be.
SQUARE ENIX: Square Enix is among the best developers for retro games. They ported many of their old console classics to mobile with a bit of modern flair. Some of the titles include several main Final Fantasy games, several main Dragon Quest games, Adventures of Mana, Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy Tactics: WotL, The World Ends With You, and many others. Those looking for jRPG retro games should definitely start here. The games are a bit expensive, though (4,980 naira). However, you are purchasing a complete port of these old games with no ads or in-app purchases to gum up the works.
SKYFORCE RELOADED: It doesn’t get much more old school than top-down aerial shooters. Sky Force Reloaded is exactly that. It features a bunch of levels, upgradeable ships, simple controls, and plenty of mini-missions to do. The graphics aren’t retro, but everything else about it feels like the 1990’s. It is a freemium title with a few of the usual pitfalls.
So that's it for the best retro games on android. If we've missed any great retro games, let us know in the comment box.

Dear T-fans,for the downtime you have between all the adulting on Easter, here are 13 adult Easter activities that will help you have a fun day, too.
1. Adult Egg Hunt
2. Lucky Lotto Egg HuntIf you want to do an Easter egg hunt for adults, but don't want it to be alcohol-related, go for every grown-up's next favorite thing: money. Have everyone geta plastic egg or two with a scratch ticket inside, and then hide them all around for your family members (or quarantine buddies) to find. It's an inexpensive way to spread cash around, and if you're lucky, someone will win big and share the love.
3. Plastic Egg Truth Or DareAdd a little juvenile fun to your adult Easter with a good old-fashioned game of truth or dare. This one requires a little creativity and your Zoom app. Get all of your friends on a Zoom call this Easter and tell them to fill plastic eggs with slips of paper that either have a "truth" question written on them, or some kind of dare. Each person will pick out eggs for other players. If someone pulls an egg for someone and the other player doesn't like it, they aren't allowed to pick for that person again — the player either has to do what the egg asks, or take a drink.
4. Egg Decorating

5. Egg TapOne of my favorite traditions as a kid was the annual egg tap game. The rules are simple: everyone grabs a hard boiled egg and goes around in a circle using their egg to try and crack the person's egg next to you without cracking your own. To give it an adult twist, you can give away a bottle of wine or champagne for the person whose egg cracks last. This can be played with both the adults and children in the family, so you don't have to worry that you can't invite any other outside guests to join.
6. Beautiful Egg HuntSure, any adult would love to open up a plastic egg and find some booze inside, but if you happen to be quarantined with your girl gang this Easter, make your egg hunt beautiful. Hide plastic eggs filled with mini nail polishes, lip stick, eye shadows, face mask packets, and sample sizes of your favorite beauty products. Everyone will be happy with a mini beauty kit.
7. BrunchIf your Easter is going to be sans-children or family, gather up your grown-up friends via and throw a fun and boozy virtual brunch. Make a mimosa or Bloody Mary bar, try some new brunch recipes, and don't be shy with the Plus, with everyone in their own homes, you don't have to share your waffles with anyone. Who says you can't party on a Sunday?
8. Schedule A Family Zoom Call
9. Easter Makeup LooksEvery holiday offers the great opportunity to create a fun and festive makeup look. For Easter, whether you choose to use pastel colors or draw zig-zag lines, it can be fun to play around with your face. Once you're done, you can even post a totally cute Easter look on your Instagram. Plus, now that you're an adult, there's a lot more you can probably do artistically that just painting on bunny whiskers.
10. Cook Your FavoritesEverything can be so rushed on Easter with all the guests set to arrive early. This year, you can take advantage of the social distancing guidelines and take your time cooking dinner without feeling like you have a deadline. With no guests, there's no worry. Cook at your own pace and then sit and relax to eat your meal on your own time. You might even be able to try out that new recipe you've been itching to attempt.
11. Order TakeoutIf you don't even feel like cooking for this Easter, you don't have to. With no guests on their way, you can just sit back and get your favorite food delivered to your home. This way, you get to relax and still eat chow down on your Easter faves — you just don't have to be the one to cook them.
12. Sleep InEaster may usually be a hectic and stressful time just because of all the work that has to go into the preparation. But without having to attend to guests or a bunch of kids this year, you can give yourself the morning off and sleep in or even nap in the middle of the day. You'll be able to start your day at your own pace and celebrate the holiday in a more relaxed state of mind.
13. Easter Gift SwapChristmas isn't the only time to give gifts, and thanks to this great idea courtesy, you can spread the love on Easter, too. While you may not be able to physically exchange gifts this year, you and your friends can always send little trinkets to each other's houses to spread the Easter joy. Whether you have a book delivered or Edible Arrangements, it's a great way to brighten up everyone's Easter.

Dear T-FANS, what were your plans for Easter before the lockdown? please share your plans with us in the comment box. #StayHome and #StaySafe
What is Easter?
Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus from the tomb on the third day after his crucifixion. Easter is the fulfilled prophecy of the Messiah who would be persecuted, die for our sins, and rise on the third day. (Isaiah 53). Remembering the resurrection of Jesus is a way to renew daily hope that we have victory over sin. According to the New Testament, Easter is three days after the death of Jesus on the cross.

TheCAMON 15 is equipped with a powerful 64MP SONY camera, which is the leading global mobile photography trend.

With many people being asked to socially distance themselves from others, while other cities have placed their residents under mandatory lockdown to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus, the United Nations has tips for those seeking to strike the balance between vigilance and the need to maintain some normalcy in their lives.
With school closures, parenting has become increasingly challenging. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has issued six parenting tips for parenting during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
“School shutdown is also a chance to make better relationships with our children and teenagers,” says UNICEF in the guidance document. “One-on-One time is free and fun. It makes children feel loved and secure, and shows them that they are important.”
School shutdown is also a chance to make better relationships with our children and teenagers. One-on-One time...makes children feel loved and secure, and shows them that they are important.
UNICEF recommends parents and their children to create a flexible but consistent daily routine. “COVID-19 has taken away our daily work, home and school routines. This is hard for children, teenagers and for you. Making new routines can help,” it says.
In a document on how to talk to children about the coronavirus disease, UNICEF says “children have a right to truthful information about what’s going on in the world, but adults also have a responsibility to keep them safe from distress”, recommending that adults use age-appropriate language, watch children’s reactions, and be sensitive to their level of anxiety.UNICEF also offers some advice for employers on how they can support working parents during the coronavirus outbreak.
The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is rallying international organizations, civil society and private sector partners in a broad coalition to ensure that learning never stops.The agency has also release a document listing distance learning solutions and recommendations.
The closure of gyms, sport facilities and stadiums, public pools, dance studios, and playgrounds means that many are not able to actively participate in individual or group sporting or physical activities. But that does not mean, people should stop being physically active, nor should they disconnect from the coaches, teammates and instructors. In the lead up of the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (6 April) the United Nations is working with influencers in sport to create social media messaging encouraging audiences to be active and to foster solidarity against the challenges posed by COVID-19.

The World Health Organization recommends 150 minutes of moderate-intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity per week, or a combination of both. WHO also have some tips on how to achieve this with no equipment and with limited space. There is an abundance of free and accessible online and digital tools targeted at encouraging people of all ages and abilities to stay active and mobile while remaining indoors.
Changes to lifestyle during this difficult period can adversely affect people’s wellbeing. It is always important to protect mental health.WHO has released a 31-point guidance on mental health that specifically targets the general population; healthcare workers; health facility managers; childcare providers; older adults, care providers and people with underlying health conditions; and those who are living in isolation to try and contain the spread of the pandemic. (Read UN News story on this).
UNICEF has some tips on mental health for teenagers. One recommendation is to find new ways to connect with friends via social media. Get creative: Join in a Tik-Tok challenge like #safehands. “I would never underestimate the creativity of teenagers,” says Dr. Lisa Damour, expert adolescent psychologist, best-selling author and monthly New York Times columnist. “My hunch is that they will find ways to with one another online that are different from how they’ve been doing it before.”

The bezel is that space bordered around your smartphone screen where the camera, phone sensor, home button, etc. are located. A notch is that small space on the screen where the camera, sensor and the phone speaker is located.
These days in the race of bigger bezel-less screens, phone companies have been continuously innovating their smartphones and some go a ‘notch’ further and remove the notch altogether. One may wonder if the phone has a bezel-less screen, where does the camera go? How does it work?
Say hello to the pop-up camera, Tecno Camon 15 Premier and Pro!!!
Back in the day, the camera, memory, RAM management, screen material used, the micro-chip, processor speed, battery backup, brand, etc were considered to be important factors for a person to consider while buying a smartphone.
But with the introduction of Tecno Mobile, smartphones are now slimmer, slicker and it's improves screen-to-body ratio should be one of the reasons you should get a smartphone.
Below arereasons why pop-up camera phones are awesome:
1. The cool feel: Pop-up sliders are cool and attractive. It shows how revolutionary and transformative technology has become.
2. More display area: One good benefit of the pop-up feature on any smartphone is that it gives room for a bigger display, also hides your camera in such a way that your screen is at the full display which is the perfect view to watch all your favorite movies and play video games.
3. No requirement of notch screen giving an elusive and cool impression: In this type of display, a place where the camera is placed is blank for the camera, making it look good as compared to the notch display
4. They also have a futuristic vibe and give users concerned with privacy peace of mind, as the front-facing camera isn’t staring at them the whole time.
PS: Every phone needs a gentle touch and since Pros goes with Cons, I would edge you to treat your phone like a diamond, however, if you turn out to be careless, Carlcare would be ready to assist.

By now, I believe a lot of us are familiar with the term "TAIVOS" which came into existence with the birth of Camon 15 in Tecno's effort of pushing technological innovations to a whole new level.
TAIVOS™ is a signal processing technology. In other words, it’s a dedicated microprocessor that works together with AI algorithms to do one job: significantly enhance night-time photography, optimizing processes and renderings by making images clearer, enhancing night shots, and overall improvement through high-performance imaging algorithm capabilities.
I don't own the device yet but a few who do have said that TAIVOS™ enables up to 15-frame synth with an imaging time of just 4.68 seconds while most other smartphones only achieves this in 5.5 seconds or even 7 seconds. That means that the photographs shot with TAIVOS™ are built from a composite of 15 image frames that can be analyzed and recombined pixel-for-pixel, vividly capturing each element in your scenes with optimal contrast. This technology really pays off for all-day photo-taking lovers including night shots, since evening shades naturally tend to run together and darken after nightfall. Consumers are likely to be dazzled by these great photos since TAIVOS™ is able to filter out image noise and optimize image clarity to deliver clear, balanced, vivid photographs even in low- to lower-light conditions.
This is just one out of the loads of technological richness packed on this device. Visit Tecno's official website to place an order and don't forget to follow me on Tspot for more.

But basically what you get in the box includes:
I didn’t know which colour my review unit was, so unboxing it on video, I was amazed by the Shoal Gold model here as TECNO has decided to name it. I have no idea what shoal gold means. But I feel it is the only adequate description that could fit the phone’s look. It is both gold and sort of blue at the same time. It’s a gradient that shines differently under different light conditions. Plus, there’s also a series of curved lines running on the device that appear more prominently under bright light.
These pictures here should explain what I am trying to say:
At the back there’s just what you see above:
A new inscription written “Innovation Designed by TECNO”
The Fingerprint scanner, and
The rear Quad-camera setup which protrudes
The Quad camera setup is weird because TECNO hasn’t been clear on what the 3 extra lenses do. Yes, there’s the 48MP main lens, but I cannot state what the other 3 lenses do. Of course I know one lens is a dedicated low light lens for helping with night shots, but I cannot tell which one. Checking in software, there’s nothing to show which lens is which, or what each lens does. This isn’t a good thing, because as a buyer I’d want a clear explanation on what each lens’ purpose is. I hope the company comes out clear on what the extra lenses do before the phones hit the stores.
I’ve seen some retailers have listed the rear camera setup as 48MP main + 5MP + 2MP + 2MP. However, GSMArena have listed the lenses as 48MP+2MP+2MP+QVGA. This leaves everything to speculation. Which isn’t right. Still, expect a full camera review. Hopefully by then I will know the exact specs of each of the lenses, and what role each lens plays.
On the front, the 6.6 inch HD+ display looks as colorful, and as bright as with almost all the recent TECNO phones. That’s to say, it’s a decent display. I am still not happy it isn’t FULL HD. But it serves its purpose well. There’s a circular cut out at the top left that houses the 16MP selfie camera. The front dual flash is housed on the phone’s top bezel, together with the ambient light sensor, and other important sensors.
The bezels, like all phones we’ve seen recently from TECNO and Infinix are of reasonable size. They’re not stuff I can complain about at this price range. Of course when you compare it to flagships they’re quite thick, but this is a very budget phone, and as such, this design is more than good. Anyway they look to me just as thick as, if not thicker, than iPhone 11’s bezels. Fight me.
The bottom chin could be a little smaller, but given the tech needed to really be able to bend the LCD panel to reduce that chin, this is also acceptable at this price range. It doesn’t take away a lot from the aesthetics of the device, and many people getting the phone won’t have any issues with that chin. I am happy there’s no TECNO logo on that bottom chin. I’ve seen some Nokia phones do that and I hate them.
The Camon 15 comes with 4GB RAM, a Helio P22 Processor, and 64GB of internal storage. You can expand the storage with a dedicated microSD card slot. For the estimated price point of between 14k and 16k, this is obviously a really good deal. In 2020, on Android moreso, at least 3GB is what should be enough for tasks like social media, a little gaming, and a little productivity work like photo and simple video editing.
I believe the 4GB is enough for keeping a good number of apps in memory, and for making the phone feel considerably snappier. The only let down is the dated processor. I wonder why TECNO insists on these old chips. I will share more thoughts on the processor and the RAM in my full review. I hope I won’t be disappointed.
So I’ve said I like most of the things I’ve already mentioned above. However, there’s something that really annoyed me when unboxing this phone.
The included charger is a meagre 10W charger for some reason. Remember this phone packs a huge 5000mAh battery. Charging it with a 10W charger will take a lifetime! At least 18W charging would do TECNO. And if you’re hoping for type-C here…. forget it. It’s a micro USB cable.
I really wish TECNO added USB Type-C to this phone. I would – with no hesitation – easily recommend it to anyone. Because that one port would be a good step in future-proofing the device.
Anyway, there’s lots of people, I’ve come to realise, who don’t mind the MicroUSB port, and will definitely not see this as an issue. And for those people, this is a great device they will definitely be picking up.
I also believe the specs of this phone – provided TECNO hits the price right – will make many people compromise of the USB Type-C port and pick it up because they want 4GB RAM/64GB storage at a low price.

Yes yes yes, Tecno Camon 15. The device we've all been waiting for finally launched yesterday. And for those who don't know, the Tecno man you were asked to guess was revealed yesterday and it turns out to be none other thanAyodeji Ibrahim Balogun. Our very own STARBOY A.K.A WIZKID.
Though on the show yesterday, it wasn't much of a surprise for fans, as those of us who are followers of wizkid on twitter noticed recently he was twitting via android and yes we guessed it right, he is the Tecno man/Tecno ambassador. Tecno also made its way into Guiness Book of Record on 20th March 2020 for achieving the largest flip book which adds to a new era marked by the device, Tecno Camon 15.
A few other things went down yesterday which you know of already but let's get down to other things having to do with the launch of the device.
(1) MISINFORMATION ON PRICE: Yesterday, Tecno officially announced the price of the amazing Tecno Camon 15 but immidiately after the show ended somewhere, somehow, somebody looked at his telly and was like "Nooooo man, we need to change this price from this
. This fake price withing minutes started making rounds on social media and it made me feel like the guy whose television is faulty because what I saw on telly was totally different from what is been circulated round. Quick enough Tecno made a post about it on facebook and that was put to rest.
(2) VARIANTS: At the moment, I only know of four variants of the device Tecno Camon 15 as shown below.
We only know of two of which prices were announced, I really would have loved them all to be talked about at the event and pricing announced because with the misinformation that went on immediately after the show ended on something so obvious that millions of people saw on telly, live streamed, what would now happen to the remaining not talked about with an absence of price tag? We are dealing with the corona virus pandemic at the moment and with the lockdown, prices of things have been inflated and I personally feel this leaves a window for that. I would have loved the names and official price of all to be displayed at the launch and not just two.
(3) PRO & PREMIER: Ok guys both are not the same, I had to argue with a few people yesterday over this. The premiere comes with 64mp ultra quad camera while the pro comes with 48mp. For now I don't own the device so this is all I can tell you but seriously both are not the same. Some people who agreed to this that they are not the same though thinks the price displayed yesterday of 95k and 62500K is for that of the premier and pro. Well no guys, that's not true. If you take a look at the picture posted by Tecno yesterday via facebook shown below,
you would notice that of 62500k has a punch hole camera/dot in display. This I believe should be the normal camon 15 or the air version and not the pro. Both premier and pro houses a pop up camera and not a punch hole/dot display camera.
Let us know your thoughts on this with regards to the launch yesterday in the comment section and don't forget to follow me on Tspot for more.Read all >>
