Let me show you what you get in the box. Now, when you buy the Tecno Camon 17 Pro you get the free set of earbuds, called the Tecno Earbuds 1. They’re super easy to connect to your smartphone and sound really good. What’s more, is that they look more than and fashionable. Back to the smartphone, it is available in the colors California Silver, and Malibu Blue. Inside the box is a warranty card, a TPU case that fits the smartphone perfectly. It also comes with a 25.3 Watts, fast charger, earphones, micro USB type C cable, and that very important (when you need it) SIM ejector tool. There isn’t a screen protector inside the box although a film screen protector has already been applied.
For the build quality, Tecno Camon 17 Pro has a plastic frame. The edge of this smartphone is easy to hold. Thanks to the 3.5D design. For the rear, Tecno prefers to call it organic glass. But no! It isn’t glass but is made from plastic. Well not just any type of plastic, but one that is smooth to touch and is also fingerprint smudges and drop resistant. Oh best this one is built to resist quite some heavy drops you can believe that! What about water resistance I hear someone ask?
The Camon 17 Pro doesn’t have an official IP rating. When you take out the card slots you see gaskets that help to keep water out of the smartphone. All we can cautiously say here is that accidental slips into water will not render your phone useless. The display doesn’t seem to be protected with Corning gorilla glass. We’ll advise you to get a plastic screen protector to properly make this phone even more durable.
Tecno Camon 17 Pro is the first Tecno device with a secondary mic. It’s a big deal guy because the secondary microphone helps with noise cancellation. That is for when you’re making the call. It also improves the audio quality when you’re making phone calls and it improves the audio when you’re shooting a video. Now let’s go around this smartphone real quick. On the left side, it’s a constantly dual nano-SIM card tray and a memory card slot.
The bottom is where you will find the 3.5mm audio Jack, the main microphone, a USB type C port, and one of the speakers. Yes, Tecno Camon 17 Pro comes with dual stereo speakers. The other speaker is at the top and it sounds really good. Moving to the right side, you will find the volume of the under buttons and the power button. The power button doubles as the fingerprint scanner which is fast and instant.
It is on the back of this device that you will notice the camera setup. It comes to a 64-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera that doubles as the macro camera. The same also has a 2MP depth camera and a 2-megapixel mono camera. Besides the cameras is the led flashlight. Switching to the front. It has a 48-megapixel front-facing camera. “The clearest selfie camera,” according to Tecno. What’s your take on that? Leave a comment on the review section if you have tested this phone.

Photos from the 48-megapixel front-facing camera are decent. Portrait shots look okay. And yes! This front camera can shoot videos in [email protected] frames per second. The 64-megapixel main camera on the other hand the takes breathtaking pictures. The other is an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera and further what you also see is a 2-megapixel monochrome camera. Both picture and video quality are really good I must admit. It doesn’t have an image or video stabilization. So if you want that you need to downscale from 4k to [email protected]
That display of the Tecno Camon 17 Pro is a 6.8 inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 1080 x 2460 pixels. The display has a refresh rate of 90 Hz, and it touched a sampling rate of 180Hz. It’s a bright display with peak brightness at 500 nits so using it outdoors shouldn’t be a problem. Watching say movies, on this 1080p device will be enjoyable. Although Tecno should have used an AMOLED display on the Camon 17 Pro considering that price.
Performance is one area where Tecno Camon 17 Pro flies. It’s powered by the Mediatek Helio G95 processor. Comparisons on YouTube show that t is faster than the Samsung Galaxy A52 with a Snapdragon 720G processor. And in some cases, it’s faster than the Redmi Note 10 Pro with the Snapdragon 732G processor. But hey! Benchmark results don’t translate to how smartphones perform in the real world. Also we, PhonePlace Kenya, have not carried these tests out for ourselves. So keep that in mind.
This we do know though! That for multitasking Tecno Camon 17 Pro comes with 8 gigabytes of RAM. With 8GB RAM, the aforesaid cannot be an issue for the phone. And it isn’t. For gaming. The Camon 17 pro comes with a Mali-G76 MC4 GPU which helps in rendering graphics-intensive games. For the operating system, this one runs on Android 11 with HIOS 7.6. HIOS 7.6 brings a new privacy feature that makes it impossible for someone next to you to read your screen.
The Tecno Camon 17 Pro has a 5,000 mAh battery inside it. It will definitely last the entire day. Takes one hour, five minutes to charge this smartphone from zero to 100%, which isn’t bad considering the size of the battery. Worth noting is that this phone comes with a fast-charging brick 25W.
