Tecno Camon 17 Pro review

Introduction

Not quite Premier, but still a Pro, the Camon 17 Pro is Tecno’s latest and greatest, bringing decent camera hardware, powerful midrange chipset and a big battery, all for about €250 to €300 depending on who you ask.

Africa being the primary market for Tecno, we’re finding the Camon 17 Pro at Nigerian retailers for as low as NGN130K (€260). That will get you a large, 6.8-inch display with a 90Hz refresh rate, though it’s an LCD and not OLED. The Helio G95 should be easily good enough for most things, and the 5,000mAh battery promises excellent endurance.

Camon is the camera-focused series in the brand’s lineup, and this 17 Pro comes with a 64MP primary unit, joined by an 8MP ultrawide with autofocus. Then there’s a couple of 2MP cameras, one labeled ‘bokeh’, the other – ‘black/white’. More important than these 2×2 is the selfie camera – a 48MP sensor is in charge there.

Here’s a quick recap of the specs before we open that box.

The Camon 17 Pro arrives in a two-piece box that’s white on the outside and blue on the inside, the same blue that’s used for the bold ‘Camon’ lettering on the lid.

Inside, there’s a full set of accessories, including a reasonably beefy charger rated at 5V/3A and 10V/3.3A and a USB-A-to-C cable to go with it. There’s also a transparent silicone case for protection, as well as a set of earbuds.
