The new Camon i Sky has a tall screen with curvy edges around the corner. The device is feels very light when it is held. The front panel of the phone has the display and top of display has the selfie camera along with the front LED flash.

At the right side of the phone lie the power button and the volume rockers.  The left side of the phone is having the hybrid SIM tray. The rear side of the phone has rear camera which is assisted by LED flash, fingerprint sensor and the speaker. The presence of fingerprint sensor is making the new Camon i Sky to stand at a different place from other budget smartphones.

Display

The new Camon i Sky has 5.45 inch Full View HD display. The compact screen size is allowing enough display view to have a comfortable view of anything being displayed on the screen.  The 2.5D glass is providing the screen protection from any threat which the screen can come across. The resolution of the screen isn’t much to talk about and it could create problem if the users is out in the Sun. Tecno could have added few more pixels to it.

Processor

The new Camon i Sky has 1.28 Ghz quad-core processor. The processor power is decent and can take load of multitasking comfortably. It also tries to keep the device at stable and at calm state when the phone gets heated up during game playing or when big apps are used. It runs on Android Oreo 8.1. The smartphone does not lag anywhere during our testing. The OS is an advantage of Camon i Sky.

Camera

The Tecno Camon i Sky is sporting two very attractive cameras with amazing power capability. The front camera is of 8 Megapixel which is very rare to find in budget smartphones. The 8MP selfie camera gives you clear images at most of the occasions and might induce little bit of graining effect while clicking at dark conditions when the flash comes into play. There are various modes and filters present for you to opt for according to your choice. The rear camera is of 13MP with dual flash. The rear camera delivers astonishing images at every occasion. The rear lens is an advantage of Tecno Camon i Sky and will surely be one of the hot selling propositions for this smartphone.

RAM and ROM

The new Camon i Sky offers 2GB RAM size which is handy in handling applications of the phone. The RAM size together with the processor tends to keep the workload to a minimum level allowing the device to function appropriately. The phone has 16GB ROM which is decent amount of ROM size to allow you to store all the needed apps and multimedia. The storage can be expanded with the help of microSD card. At this price, the company could have gone for a 3GB variant to compete with the likes of Xiaomi.

Battery

The new Camon i Sky has powerful battery of 3,050mAh which can keep the phone working throug half a day. The charging speed is also decent as well and while charging the device on some occasions gets warmed up. For a budget smartphone, the battery is on the lesser side as compared to others which are offering 4,000 to 5,000mAh battery.

Conclusion

The new Tecno Camon i Sky delivers on majority aspects with good camera performance, clean Android and Full View display. At Rs 7,499, it seems to be an apt choice for the first time buyers and for those who want to upgrade from feature to smartphone. The Face Unlock is an extra addition to Camon i Sky apart from the fingerprint sensor. The battery could have been more powerful especially when it’s catering to budget audiences.
