Tecno Camon 12 Air Display Review

camon 12 air review

The Tecno Camon 12 air has a 6.55inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen rocking a 720p resolution with an of 20:9 aspect ratio.

As usual, most Tecno phones come with LCD panels and the Camon 12 Air is not different. I don’t mostly pay attention to the Display when it comes to smartphones the only thing I check out is pixel density and higher resolutions I don’t mind using any kind of display. The display panel is very bright even though it is an LCD display.

What is the Battery on the Tecno Camon 12 Air Like?

The Camon 12 Air is powered by a 4000mAh battery it has enough juice to power the device for whole day usage.

The battery is awesome on this device as even during heavy usage which includes streaming YouTube; listening to music and regular gaming it still held its ground.

Honestly, the Tecno Camon 12 air as one of the best battery life in its price range and I don’t see most phones that can be better the only problem is lack of fast charging.

Design Of Camon 12 Air

The Tecno Camon 12 has a 6.55inch screen which makes it big it is also has a plastic build at the back. It has a triple camera set up at the back and the color combinations it comes with makes it even more beautiful there is a fingerprint scanner at the back.

The volume rocker keys and power button are placed on the right side of the device. While the left side carries the Sim card and SD card tray. Well, the Tecno Camon 12 Air has the same design with most of the devices that Tecno has released in 2019.

It comes with a chin at the bottom but it’s forgivable since the device doesn’t have a dot notch screen. There are no bezels at the top this kind of gives you the feeling of using an all-screen device. The charging port, speaker grille, and mouthpiece are at the bottom.

Performance and Software on Tecno Camon 12 Air

The Tecno Camon 12 is powered by the MediaTek Helio P22 clocked at 2.0 GHz, it comes with 4GB ram and 64GB internal memory. It runs very smooth and it’s capable of handling everything thrown at it.

Throughout usage, there was no lag experienced it was fast and I sense it’s as a result of the 4GB Ram on the device it handles all sorts of apps. But toggling through the apps every now and will cause apps to crash.

Gaming, on the other hand, was smooth but playing games like COD had to be on lower frame rates and it ran cool with no lags as well.

Tecno Camon 12 air runs on android 9 pie with Hi-Os as we all know the Hi-Os comes with pre-loaded bloatware. some of the bloatware can be uninstalled. there are a lot of ads attached and that’s my major problem with the software.

What is The Camera Like On Tecno Camon 12 Air?

Now let’s talk about the camera this is where the power of the device lies. Tecno Camon 12 air has a triple camera setup capable of taking amazing shots. The primary sensor on the device is 16MP other cameras include a depth sensor and a dedicated macro lens.

The macro lens is capable of taking amazing shots. Instead of having an ultra-wide sensor Tecno opted for a macro camera on the Tecno Camon 12 air.


It comes with an 8MP front punch hole camera and I must say that it is not as impressive as the rear cameras but it still tries to do the job. This device is no doubt capable of taking the most amazing pictures are seen below

Overall Verdict

This is simply one of the best android smartphones you can get below N50,000. Photography quality and performance are top-notch. The display is large and the 720p resolution should be enough for you to enjoy media contents.

Another factor to consider again is battery life on this device.
