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 >>

Factors to I consider when buying Bluetooth earphonesThere are a number of factors to consider before buying either Bluetooth or wireless headphones and earphones. Top among these factors is sound quality and the type of the gadget. We will first discuss these two factors in-depth and give the right tips to illustrate the considerations and put you into perspective.
Sound qualityGo for earphones that can balance sounds and frequencies well. This will depend on the make as well as the version of Bluetooth technology that they are running on – we recommend going for the latest Bluetooth technology version.Also, check for sound control systems that will give you greater control over sounds and frequencies – for instance, earphones come with sound controls at the back of the earphone that is controlled via voice commands while most other makes feature sound control buttons.Modern wireless headphones are coming configured with Bluetooth technology so that they are compatible with a wider range of devices. This, however, is not the case with Bluetooth headphones whose connectivity is mostly limited to Bluetooth technology.Interestingly, however, some Bluetooth and wireless headphones can be tethered to a two-pronged wire. Bluetooth headphones are generally compatible with more devices compared to wireless headphones.Sweat Resistance and DurabilityBluetooth earphones are especially popular with trainers and gym-goers. This means that they are prone to sweat, dust, and other harsh elements. These elements can compromise their performance and durability. This is why almost all Bluetooth earphones are sweat-resistant, but their resistance varies. For instance, some earphones are completely resistant to water while others only take enough measures to prevent moisture from getting into the driver chamber.My Oraimo OEB-E58D supports thisBattery LifeAgain, battery life should be the first thing to consider as there is no music without power. Earphones have longer-lasting batteries than most headphones, but battery life depends on the make and design.The average earphones have a battery life of 5 hours of continuous playtime. Sub-standard earphones, however, barely last 3 hours of continuous playtime. However my Oraimo Bluetooth earphones are pushing the limits to up to 10 hours.

Powered by SONY Camera
Like the previous TECNO CAMON series, the new TECNO CAMON 15 series carry forward the legacy of superior photography performance.

With the chip’s incredible sensitivity, photos can still maintain precise details after being zoomed in even 8 times. The quality of photos will be very high, even from a long distance!
Trademarked TAIVOS™ technology for Ultra-Clear Night shots
As a high-tech company, TECNO broke new technological ground by to creating TAIVOS™ (TECNO artificial intelligence vision optimization solution) to bring you genuinely ultra-clear night shots. The Ultra Night Lens allows for better edge correction and multi-frame noise reduction, producing cleaner and clearer night shots.

Ultra-clear picture with 64 Megapixels
Equipped with 64 Megapixels, CAMON 15 makes even the tiniest details clearly visible from 30 meters away. In the current market, most cameras utilize 48 MP cameras to process sensory data. However, TECNO CAMON 15 has the 64MP SONY camera as its computational support. It can reduce visual noise after zooming in on subjects, and less noise means a clearer vision!

It is also unclear from the release if there’ve been other similar Phone of the Year awards from AITTA before. And if so, which phones have won the awards previously.The official press release by TECNO states that:TECNO SPARK 3 was awarded as the phone of the year as a result of its cutting edge features as well as its positive reception by TECNO brand loyals, and customers.Starting their business from the Africa market in 2006, TECNO has been Africa’s leading smartphone brand and was the first dual-SIM handset supplier to the African continent.

The TECNO Camon Series is well known for their photography prowess, hence when a new one is being introduced, people already know it is about the camera
The new Camon 12 Pro brings a lot of camera improvements compared to last year’s Camon 11 Pro. The device focuses on delivering better nightlife, wide-angle and macro photography experiences.
Here we will be unboxing the Camon 12 Pro in its full glory.
Key Specs of the Camon 12 Pro
6.4″ AMOLED HD+ display
720 x 1548-px resolution
16MP + 8MP + 2MP Main cameras with quad-LED flash
32MP front selfie camera featuring Uniquely Placed front LED flash
Octa-core 2.0 GHz Mediatek Helio P22 CPU
6 GB of RAM
64 GB of built-in memory
HiOS 5.5 based on Android v9 (Pie)
3500-mAh non-removable battery
In-display fingerprint scanner; AR and Emoji Stickers
The Camon 12 Pro comes wrapped in a white box has the name of the product name, the brand name and a schematic of the phone
So when you opened the box, you are greeted with the phone, then a small pack containing the back cover and finally the other accessories can be found underneath.
These accessories include a charger, a pair of headphones, a free pouch, SIM ejector tool and user manual.
Display-wise, the device is occupied by a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen. There is a Dot-hole cut-out that houses the 32MP front-facing selfie snapper followed by a dual-LED flash.
The mouthpiece is also placed at the top which is something interesting if you consider how slim the chin at the top is.
Down at the bottom of the screen, you will find the multitasking button followed by the home button and the exit button.
When it comes to the placement of a button, you get the volume controller and the power buttons at the right-hand side while at the left-hand side of the phone, you get a dedicated Google Assistant button and a SIM slot which can take two Nano-SIMs and a micro-SD card.The back of the phone houses back a triple rear camera set up consisting of a 16MP main camera, a 2-megapixels depth sensor and a wide-angle 8-megapixels sensor
The device will be available in Nigeria in the coming weeks and customers will be able to purchase it across retail outlets and TECNO exclusive stores.Read all >>
The Google Voice Assistant is a Google feature present on all Android-based devices and is one cool feature a lot of users like and would love to be educated on.
Google Assistant is an artificial intelligence-powered virtual assistant developed by Google that is primarily available on mobile and smart home devices. There is so much you can do with your Google Assistant both online and offline. You can make calls, schedule appointments, open apps, play music. Surf the net and so much more.
Due to this usefulness of the feature, a dedicated key was created for it on the Camon 12 Pro to aid easy access to the feature. So instead of using the voice prompt to activate the feature, you could just press the button on the side of the device and voila, the assistant is activated!
Do you have the Camon 12 Pro, what do you feel about the Google Assistant Button?

Do you live in a fast-paced, heavy traffic city like Lagos? Then you know quite well that we were lied to growing up. No one told us that adulthood will be this fast-paced and tough. As if hustling and bustling through the day aren’t hard enough, heavy traffic had to be added to the mix. But we are Nigerians, we are strong and resilient and we have nightlife!
Nothing beats Lagos nightlife guys. Absolutely nothing. And the fun doesn’t just stop in Lagos. I know for a fact that other cities have great nocturnal activities too. So, the days might get rough and frustrating, but the nights are always there for us to unwind and get new air under our wings!
Several restaurants across the country offer awesome live music and entertainment, some even turn into dance clubs most nights of the week, while others turn into amazing karaoke bars as the nights proceed. This isn’t even to mention the oh-so-fantastic food in all shades and forms.
Then there are clubs, and point and kill joints, and football showing centres, drinking bars, pepper soup joints, and even night gaming centres. The list is endless, the beautiful experience unlimited
There is a downside to this though. Imagine this; you are having a beautiful time, and you whip out your phone to make videos and or take pictures. The best you’ll get is a really dark photo with flashes of eyes and teeth. If there is no sufficient light, then you are automatically getting a really bad photo. This right here is the downside. You’re flexing and enjoying life, but the memory can’t be captured. Most times when I get stubborn and snap those pictures anyway, I end up deleting them myself, most times angrily.
TECNO has been changing the game, releasing smartphones that shoot amazing images even at night. The information has it that they are about to release a new phone to top the previous Camon 12 Series night king. A new TECNO phone is about to be launched. And I hear it is going to be the birth of the true night shot king. Oh, what joy.
According to leaks, the new TECNO phone will be armed with a new technology trademarked TAIVOS™. Apparently, TAIVOS is short for TECNO AI Vision Optimization Solution. Sources say that a dedicated microprocessor will work together with AI algorithms to do one job and one job only; significantly enhance night-time photography.
According to analysis, TAIVOS™ will help improve other photo effects with its ability to increase the sharpness and brightness in digital image signals. When the user is combining cutting-edge camera hardware and powerful algorithms, TAIVOS™ is the missing link that gets all features working together to deliver amazing pictures with a burst of colours.
This is very interesting and exciting! Just days ago, we heard that the new TECNO phone will be equipped with a SONY chip and a whopping 64 mega pixels. We thought that was enough to make the camera outstandingly amazing. But we were wrong. Will you blame us though? The SONY chip news is such a big deal. With the chip, the phone will be the first of its kind in Africa.
We certainly didn’t see this new feature coming. TECNO sure knows how to surprise their fans. The brand says TECNO is for Nigerians and I am starting to believe it! They know how much our nightlife means to us, and they took it upon themselves to solve the one, nightlife problem we have. I really hope all these will be true and not just some leaks thought out by someone.

The first thing you'll want to know is that cleaning and disinfecting are two very different things. The CDC recommends we all do a bit of both, even if nobody in your home is sick.
1. Cleaning is about removing contaminants from a surface.2. Disinfecting is about killing pathogens.3. Do both daily if anything or anyone has entered or exited your home
Transmission from person-to-person is a much greater risk than transmission via surfaces, but the CDC recommends we clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces in our homes at least once daily just to be safe, assuming we have had contact with the outside world in some way, either a person leaving and returning or goods coming in.
High-Touch Surfaces to Clean and Disinfect Daily:1. Doorknobs2. Table surfaces3. Hard dining chairs (seat, back, and arms)4. Kitchen counters5. Bathroom counters6. Faucets, faucet knobs7. Toilets, (seat and handle)8. Light switches9. TV remote controls10. Game controllers, etc.
First Clean, Then Disinfect:1. First, clean the surfaces, removing any contaminants, dust, or debris. You can do this by wiping them with soapy water (or a cleaning spray) and a hand towel.
2. Then apply a surface-appropriate disinfectant. The quickest and easiest way to do this is with disinfecting wipes or disinfectant spray.
That’s it. Just adding these to your daily routine can help lower the risk of infection for you and anyone else in your household.The EPA has a full list of disinfectants that will kill the novel coronavirus, but here are a few essentials to keep an eye out for.
Cleaning Essentials:1. Disinfecting wipes (Clorox, Lysol, or store brand will do)2. Disinfectant spray (Purell, Clorox, Lysol, all make sprays that will work)3. Isopropyl alcohol4. Hydrogen peroxide
How to Make Homemade Bleach Disinfectant Spray:1. 4 teaspoons household bleach2. 1-quart water3. Pour both into 1-quart spray bottle, shake vigorously4. Spray on surface to disinfect, let sit for 10 minutes, wipe away with a wet cloth
Bleach is excessive in most cases. You should never ever mix bleach solution with any other cleaning chemical, and it's likely to damage or discolor sensitive surfaces. Use it as a last resort if you can't source or acquire any other kind of disinfectant. With bleach, remember to wear gloves, open your windows (ventilation is your friend), and be careful.

PS: The virus has an outside coating, and the stuff inside — DNA or RNA — is what actually causes the disease. It's kind of like the casing on a bomb or torpedo.
For a virus, that coating is a protein, and the soap or detergent break up that coating, so the virus spills its guts and falls apart.”
To decontaminate a surface, you can’t just swipe it, you’ve got to scrub it, really scrub it until the entire surface is wet, and then let it dry on its own.

Ever since the emergence of COVID-19, the net has been buzzing with misinformation. The world is not only dealing with a pandemic at the moment but an infodemic as well. Facebook and twitter has been hit the most with these and the companies are seriously putting in place strategies to address these. It appears nothing is happening on whatsapp with regards to that because that is where these false informations are constantly dished out massively on a daily. And if you live in Africa, especially Nigeria, it is very difficult to have missed any of it. So here's a compilation of some of these making rounds.
(1) AFRICANS ARE RESISTANT TO COVID-19: I don't know where this came from and why some people chose to believe it. There's a video on youtube where some africans (I can't say which country precisely) were heavily celebrating and partying reason been for this. This is so not true. We are dealing with a war between a novel microbe and humans and with the amount of celebrities we've seen tested positive to the virus shows you it has no respect for age, race or class. It has gone pass europe and asia to african countries so why would you believe simply because you are black enough and have lived in africa your whole life makes you different and immune to something that is new to human history? It is a novel virus never experienced before by the human body which can cause our immune system to sink into chaos known as cytokine storm where one's own immune system goes berserk thesame way you would react when confused. And when this happens, our body becomes our own enemy.
(2) DRINKING ALCOHOL CURES COVID-19: Ok this one is very funny because am sure a drunkard somewhere made this up as an excuse for his drinking attitude and while at the table with his alcoholic friends they all agreed is the only way to be a respected alcoholic in the society. And then boom, more drinkers joins the alcoholic club, even the complaining wife is now buying alcohol for the whole family as a cure for COVID-19. Incase you still believe alcohol cures COVID-19, then you need to know that the death toll from consumption of toxic alcohol as a cure for COVID-19 in Iran rose by 65 on Thursday, bringing the total to 180 in nearly two weeks, as reported by a local news media.
(3) NIGERIAN PREACHER FIGHTING CORONA VIRUS: An evangelical preacher who claims he can cure the virus has also been the subject of disinformation. Stories about David Kingleo Elijah, from the Glorious Mount of Possibility Church started spreading online after a video of him saying he would move to China to "destroy" the virus was uploaded on YouTube and shared on other platforms.
"I am going prophetically to destroy coronavirus. I am going to China, I want to destroy coronavirus," he says in the video. A few days later, reports appeared in blogs alleging that he had travelled to China but had been admitted to hospital after contracting the virus. The blogs refer to the pastor under a different name - Elija Emeka Chibuke. The photo used to show him in hospital is actually a photo of Adeshina Adesanya, a Nigerian actor popularly known as Pastor Ajidara, who died in hospital in 2017.
(4) DRINKING DETOL CAN CURE COVID-19: An image of a bottle of Dettol, the well-known disinfectant used to clean surfaces, has been widely shared on social media in Nigeria and South Africa with people noting that the label says the surface cleaner is effective against "human coronavirus". In Nigeria, the message that has circulated on WhatsApp is "Wow! We'll share! Imagine Dettol can help in fighting Corona virus and we're ignorant of it. It's written on the container." Several of the most widely shared posts were in South Africa. Someone wrote: "Apparently Dettol can treat the virus." However, Dettol has not been proven to kill or treat the new coronavirus - officially called Covid-19 - although the use of surface cleaning solutions such as Dettol are recommended to reduce the general spread of infections. In a statement, the company said that their disinfectant has not yet been tested against the new coronavirus but says their products " have been found to be effective " against other known coronaviruses affecting humans (such as Sars-CoV).
(5) BATHING WITH SALT PREVENTS THE SPREAD: Okay uhmmmmmmm, if you are a Nigerian, it is no longer news we were able to get rid of Ebola by unanimously waking up at 5am to bath with salt water ( that's what some people believe) and quite a lot of people are still keeping this tradition that came into been during the Ebola crisis. I really don't know how Nigeria as a country escaped Ebolabut I don't think bathing with salt was a reason. I think we all just wanted to be tasty Nigerians that day ( LOL). A lot of people ended up at the hospital with skin burn, irritations and all forms of skin related problems after the salt bath. There was even another during that time saying kolanut is a cure for Ebola. Families were buying sacks of it, forcing it on all family members as desert during meals.
No matter what we've heard or seen, misinformation is there to always make sense of things or fill in the voids. It is one of human strategies of avoiding panic.
We are constantly seeking for meaning to our lives and misinformations are there to always fill in those voids in this case where our medical system has left empty. We need to understand that this is something new we are dealing with. And we are trying to solve it the same time as we are trying to understand it. Balancing both is difficult for medical operatives. Their resources and energy have been stretched out thin. We need to give them time to make meanings of the situations and provide feedback because they are the expert. Be open to all informatons but make sure your source is authenticized. Let us know on the comment box the misinformation on COVID-19 making waves in your country and don't forget to follow me on Tspot aswell.Read all >>

What do you think has become the single most important feature of a smartphone? I know this has been an ongoing debate, and today, we are going to lay it to rest once and for all.
Personally, I’ll say it’s hands down the camera. I mean, what’s a smartphone if its camera won’t turn bland ordinary moments into beautifully captured memories with bursts of colours. But that is just my take on the matter. What do I know though? Why don’t we see what the experts have to say?
According to MIT TECHNOLOGY REVIEW, more megapixels come tops amongst the technology innovations that smartphone manufacturers are expected to prioritize and continually enhance in order to obtain the leading market position and earn creativity bragging rights.
The review states that the demand for more megapixels has become a key mobile phone trend because, as it stands now, a great camera enhances the lifestyle of smartphone users.
So, it is settled; a great camera is the best feature of a smartphone. And it would seem that TECNO is in on this too.
Here is why I think so; according to news making the rounds in the tech world, the smartphone brand is planning to change the entire dynamics of mobile phone photography by partnering with SONY on their next phone.
Sources say the new NEXT CAMON series might be equipped with a whopping 64 megapixels, and once released, will be the first phone in Africa to run on the SONY chip.
This is mega huge?! Do you know what this means? You have to take a pause to process what having a 64 million pixels camera on your phone would mean! Everything will be magnified. Every detail is delicate and clear. Even a dark portrait is bright and clear.
With a 64MP smartphone camera, the user can zoom to the extreme, even to an object 30 meters away. Think sweeping evening landscapes with still-life detail you can zoom right into, and you are starting to get the picture. Every detail, no matter how tiny, will be captured and clearly seen, even to tiny insects and the fluff of their backs.
We all know that TECNO has always been dedicated to camera smartphone technology and has solid technology accumulation, plus they have proven over and over that TECNO is indeed for Nigerians. But we didn’t see this coming. Is Nigeria even ready for this level of exquisite technology?! Brace yourself guys, things will never remain the same. If this is even a little bit true, TECNO will change the smartphone game forever! I don’t know about you, but I am definitely keeping my fingers crossed for this one.
