Early Impressions

From the looks of it the smartphones looks on par with the devices in this price range. The unit we have with us comes in Black color, which looks good. This time around Tecno has used a Qualcomm chip, Snapdragon 425 to be precise. Snapdragon 425 is a capable chip under normal usage and that is what we noticed in our usage.

Tecno has packed the Camon I Twin with 3GB of RAM which is ample and runs the apps fluidly. On the memory front there is 32GB of storage and you get 23GB free out of the box. Tecno has been using a custom skin on top of the Android 8.1 Oreo called the HiOS. Now we aren’t a fan of it but it gets the job done.

Talking about the optics, Tecno has packed the Camon I Twin with dual rear cameras, the main sensor is 13MP shooter which is assisted with a 2MP sensor for those Bokeh and Depth shots. For selfie lovers the Camon I Twin uses a 13MP f/2.0 sensor. In our initial testing the outdoor performance is good but we noticed some noise creeping in the low light shots, which is to be expected in a smartphone in this price category.

For more in-depth keep an eye for full review dropping soon.
