Camon C8 Camera: Snapshot in the Blink of an Eye

It’s faster and more accurate for shooting. The camera of C8 imitates the eye location algorithm and it can focus on objectives within 0.3 seconds. When the camera is focusing, it uses a mix of contrast and phase detection, and it’s indeed a good deal for being more professional than common camera phones. Besides, it offers you the best and a fast way to snapshot on the black screen. When the screen is switched off or locked, just simply press the special button twice which is made for snapshot. So, Tecno C8 focuses on the objects fast and accurately no matter when and where.

Tecno C8 pays attention to the beautification effect. With the technology of Visidon face recognition, selfies and other captures are delicate and nice to see. The front-facing camera is very nice as well at 5-megapixel and it even has its own dedicated flash, so selfies should also come out quite nice as well.

  1. The metallic body build of this phablet is grand. The Camera is grander. Taking a Panorama with these awesome camera specs would be pure ecstasy.

  2. I hope this comes out beautiful. I just hope. If the testimonies of people impress me well enough, I would give this a try. The camera features are truly enticing sha.

  3. Camon C8 is so spectacular with its features but 1gb RAM is gonna be boring I suggest ….we need as well the price in Nigeria

  4. Please I won’t to know when it will be out in lagos state I need it ,I won’t to be the first person to bay it in my Ariel,please in box me.thanks Emeka

    • Please I wanna get this for my Mom, is the phone out yet? pls just email me your account number, I’m not in Nigeria so I’d like you to buy and deliver it to my Mom when its out newly in the market. what attracts me most is the camera and battery capacity.

    • It really hasn’t been a bother since I’ve been using it. Honestly. I’m surprised a 1GB Ram has been pulling all the stunt needed for, atleast, a 1.5GB

  5. Pls I need an alert when this phone is out…. thank God I didnt buy the phone I wanted before because I’ve had a change of mind…. am waiting!

  6. Its quite okay but the 1gb ram is too poor for the big phone. But we cannot do anything all you get to do is to buy it if you want

  7. Nice phone n good upgraded features but at some point it will become a mess with storage memory low because of the 1Gig RAM.
    Tecno should increase their RAM size to at least 2-4 Gig RAM.

    I don’t think I’ll go for it cos of the Ram experience have gotten before.

    • but the storage memory is 16GB, you can have as many apps as possible, the RAM doesn’t affect it. Plus, recently heard Tecno is about to release another Phantom with about 3GB RAM. Looks like they listened to the Nigerian people.

  8. IT LOOKS 9CE BUT 1G RAM IS DISINCENTIVE….I REALLY APPRECIATE TECNO FOR MAKING HER PRODUCT AFFORDABLE…..PLS IMPROVE ON RAM.

    • Yeah! Have you seen or heard about the rumored Phantom to be released? – The Next Phantom. It looks like it’s with very improved RAM. I’m beginning to appreciate Tecno

  9. Well, as far as I’m concerned, the battery has been impressive
    Under normal usage, u could use a 100% for 38hrs,
    But people ℓ̊ike mƺ use d ba3 for 14hrs. 3G downloading and doing all other stuffs

    Yesterday, i started with 80% in 6PM downloaded 3.2GB stuff, watching a movie + all other background applications and i was left with 63% in 10:15 pm

  10. u guys are complaining about 1gb Ram are u telling me you won’t use SD card on the phone? or what is the complain all about, go to Techno company in China to complain and stop nagging here mtsheeeww

  11. am not a tecno fans guys buh am considering †̥O̅ go “Fø̲̣̣я̅ dis tecno c8 but 1GB Rom is giving me consign,pls friends did anyone av confirmed to dis already pls is he dependable

  12. This is nice but I don’t think I can use 1gig ram in a tecno fone cos that will be boring
    Kindly produced 32 GB Rome and 2 GB ram and I will get 1

  13. Nice discription….luvin it already…cant just wait any longer…..what about d screen…is it gorilla screen protected like hotnote

  14. Hello, how could you steal the whole post from geek.ng. Someone mentioned that your site is a C&P (copy and paste) site.
    But i wanted to see it for my self.
    You took his photos without even giving credits to him for the pics.
    Shame on you, bro.
    Mtcheeew.

    • lolz… well thanks for noticing that yourself, i gave him a call and he gave me the go ahead. And for the image credit, if you are not blind you will see it at the middle of this article.

  20. TECNO C8
    5.1 lollipop- Excellent
    13 mega pixel- Excellent
    16G ROM – Very good
    1G RAM – good
    Graphics – Excellent
    HOT NOTE PRO
    4.4 kit kat (upgradeable)- Excellent
    8 mega pixel (if true)- poor
    32G ROM – Excellent
    2G RAM – Excellent
    Graphics – Very good

  21. Comment…. Pls, if u know what phone u desire, go for it and stop castigating any phone here. I love camon c8. Simple and Sharp in all angle. 16 Rom or ram and 1 g doesn’t matter. Atleast, appreciate it first and u will not get what u want in all phone in this world remember. Gossipers, mind u!

  22. i took time today to a study on camon c8. is an amazing piece piece of upgrade from tecno. kuddles. The RAM remains the primary concern. Hey guys considering the 27,499 rate as posted by Jumia today 17/09 is ok. Go for it guys.

  23. perfect mid-range phone….only the RAM is a concern..the phone’s processor is 64 bit which makes it more powerful and faster than conventional 32 bits processor…probably might be the reason tecno gave it 1gb ram…the 64 bit processor process data faster nd more easier than 32 bits reducing the work load on the 1gb ram… so its performance is almost the same as 2gb(32-bit) mid-range smartphones.
    Am going for this phone soon!!

  24. I succeeded in getting my own yesterday @#24,900 in anambra state. anyone who needs it in Anambra state can contact me. #25,000 retail price. 09035225044…is my contact. An awesomely elegant device.

  25. Yes it can be rooted, I bought my own on the 8th of dis month in abule-egba beside just-rite then it was rooted by there engineer. So now I can use GLO subscription on it,Perfectly .

  26. I REALY LIKE IT. BUT RAM(1GB) IS NOT ENOUGH ALSO I HAVE BROBLEM IN NETWORK CO. IT STUCK ONLY ON 3G
    I DIDINT SEE ….. H+

    WH?

  27. Samsung Galaxy A5 up for sale @45k interested buyer should contact my whatsapp number @08096974964 price negotiatable… dnt add me if u ar nt crious.

  28. This fone hsd a huge multitasking problem, it doesn’t sometimes allow apps to run in background, this is an unacceptable bug. Driving me crazy

  29. This phone got what it takes for I can work all round the clock. However mine doesn’t pick on when I use in my can when I wanted to my music… Any other options!

  30. It’s a wonderful device I’ve ever come across. In fact, I love it so much that even without you paying me, I will do a little PRO job on it. Everything about the device is on point. You took your time, thought deeply about what Android device users want.
    The battery, camera n the touch are so marvelous. On my way home from work, I came across this young man taking a picture of his girlfriend with a very expensive phone but it was like the lady never liked any of the pics taken. So without permission, I took a shot of the lady from a distance and got closer to show what I’ve taken. Surprisingly, the lady took the phone from me and started asking questions about it; when n how I got her picture? I told her I took a shot of her from a distance. Wonderful Device!!! she shouted…
    This young man made me take pics of himself and the lady and whatsapped them all to him.
    For the battery, I’ve a few words to describe it; POWERFUL AND HARDER THAN THE HARDEST ROCK.

    With C8, u enjoy a smart life!!! Go out there get yourself one and another for her so you can both look smart in town.

  31. Whats the current price of it in PHC. Just like Fatma asked, what could be the reason for whats-app messages not showing until opened. Does the phone have warranty?

  32. The phone is ok and perfectly fine but once u lost or it charger got spoil, u will hate it cos the only good charger for it is that white infinixy charger….

  33. There was a question asked by someone here dat hasn’t been replied nd I want to repeat it. Wat does it mean for a phone to be ROOTED? Becos I already signed out of tecno phones ever since I used their m5 product nd got dissapointed at how slow it is but this new c8 is giving me serious reasons to av a rethink but I need to be sure that wen I buy it, it won’t be like my first experience. I need to know if there is any upgrading u need to do before u can start browsing with it. Still explain the meaning of ROOTED pls. Thank u

    • Rooting is the Android equivalent of jailbreaking, a means of unlocking the operating system so you can install unapproved (by Google) apps, update the OS, replace the firmware, overclock (or underclock) the processor, customize just about anything, and so on.

    • If u root ur tecno u won’t get any OTA update if there is any software update.
      Rooting gives u access to system that’s the root of the fone but it also voids the warranty. There is no need Rooting bf u can browse. am using mine since September 2015 but I hv no problem with it. There is no upgrade to make bf u start browsing.

  34. I have the phone and its great,got it in dec2015
    But here’s my problem, wen I plug it in to charge,the charger gets hot like extremely hot regardless of if its on or off while charging.
    B4 u day its normal,my sister got the exact phone on the exact same day as me,and her charger remains extra cool even when she’s using it as it charges,
    Did I get ripped off,is anyone else having the same problem
    Please help,this worries me

  35. Whats the current price of it in PHC. Just like Fatma asked, what could be the reason for whats-app messages not showing until opened. Does the phone have warranty?

  36. I BOUGHT MY OWN CAMON C8 ON SATURDAY 23RD JANUARY, AT FINE BROTHERS JUST ON THE LEFT HANDSID IMMEDIATELY YOU ENTER INSIDE SPA SHOPPING MALL IN PORT HARCOURT.

  38. i got my camon c8 phone a month ago , it was sent to me in school but after 2weeks, the phone went off i charged it and its still refusing to come up although its been 2 days . pls what should i do

  39. Comment…please I can’t read my message I stored on the sim. Cos if you go to sms settings and go to manage messages on sim card, it tells you simply card is closed or unsupported format. Please is it a software problem or what cos my network provider said it’s not from them.

  40. The phone is awesome but the main problem is that sometimes it reboots. That’s the problem I got with the c8. Also the pip mode in the camera is not that good in that someone may think it’s a camera application… Atlst the white part shouldn’t be there… Besides all that, am enjoying my tecno c8… Perfect job for the tecno company
