Conclusion


Tecno Camon 18 series does have a beautiful smartphone design. However, it looks too similar to the Oppo Reno series. Thus, it feels like a copycat smartphone design. At least the Tecno Camon 18 series is available in different colors than the Oppo Reno series.

In terms of specifications, I feel the Tecno Camon 18 series was a bit of a let down. The previous Tecno Camon 17 series has better specifications while the Tecno Camon 18 series has decreased in their specifications.

The Tecno Camon 18 Premier only does better in the rear camera specs. Rest, the Tecno Camon 17 series does far better in terms of specifications. Thus, in my opinion, I feel the Tecno Camon 18 series does not stand out enough against other smartphone brands.

  1. The Tecno Camon 18 series looks like a fantastic phone.  I am not sure that it will be available in the U.S.  The pricing is certainly comparable to cell phones common in the U.S.  The specs you have quoted put it on a par with the new IPhones. I found the site that was link to the article helpful, but I am still not sure if the phone will be available in the U.S.  If so, how would it link to the various cellular services?  This is an interesting article.  I am going to bookmark this page and keep a watch on the phone.

      Firstly, the Tecno smartphone brand is sadly not available in the U.S market. Thus, if you want a Tecno smartphone, you will have to order online through the site I referenced or any other online store outside the U.S.

      If you stress a Tecno smartphone will not work in the U.S, just make sure the Tecno you select meets the following frequencies: the primary frequency support for 2G/3G phones are the 850MHz and 1900MHz, while network carrier like Tmobile also support 1700/2100 AWS frequency. For 4G LTE, the primary frequency band supports are 2/4/5/12/17.

      Then you have no stress if your new Tecno smartphone will work in the U.S.  If you have anymore questions about Tecno, do not hesitate to contact me directly. Thank you for taking time to comment.

  2. Oh wow, these are great, thank you for such a helpful comprehensive list, you started me off today, it is high time for an upgrade, I have been putting it off for such a long time, now you got the wheels turning with this great post, thank you.  I especially like the Tecno Camon 18.  When I get that one, it will be the Irish Purple color, and the Tecno Camon 18 Premier will be the Vast Sky.  Those colors are beautiful.  

    The design is beautiful, I love it, even though it’s much the same as the Oppo Reno Series, it is elegant and beautiful.  And the colors are divine.  

    What would be the reason for the RAM being less than its predecessor?  Would you not think they will increase with every model?

    If I have to choose between the Tecno Camon 18 Premier and the Tecno Camon 17 Pro, the pro is the winner, mainly because of the battery power capacity.  The longer the phone battery lasts, is a very important aspect of any phone.  The longer the better.  

    Thank you Burnheart for this great informative post.  You surely helped me today to make a very important choice, one that I’ve put off for a while now, but now I have the one I want.  Thank you so much.

      It is a pleasure to assist you!

      It is quite upsetting to see the RAM memory decreasing in the new Tecno Camon 18 series. You are right to say that new smartphones are either the same RAM memory size or more. Thus, very upsetting a device go backwards.

      I hope you enjoy your smartphone selection. 😀
