The recent Camon iClick 2 which Tecno has revealed is the upgraded version of Camon iClick which was launched some months back. In our review we will be looking at all the upgraded features of the new Camon iClick 2.
To begin with the looks of Camon iClick 2 it is having an eye catchy looks with mirror coated shiny rear panel but not to be mistaken it is not glass body rather it is plastic body. The glossy panel looks very attractive but this shiny advantage has its cons as well which is it attracts a lot smudges which requires regular cleaning. The phone feels very light and comfortable in your hands allowing easy grip. What is striking about Camon iClick 2 is that it is very light which can easily surprise you from its big body looks. The rear panel of the phone is sporting the dual rear camera sensor and LED flash framed in one frame. The fingerprint sensor could be sported at the rear side as well and it has very quick response time. At the front side of the phone lies the impressive display of 15.7cm and on top of the display a notch could be sported carrying the selfie camera and the front LED flash. The volume rockers and the power button lies at the right side of the phone while at the right side lies the hybrid SIM tray capable of holding dual SIM and microSD card at the same time. The top side of the phone is left blank whereas at the bottom lies a speaker grille, micro USB port and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The face recognition feature of the phone is providing additional security feature and it works very fine even in dark conditions as well.
The new Camon iClick 2 has upgraded display size which is 6.2 HD full view display comparatively bigger than the previous Camon iClick. The display has an aspect ratio of 19:9 and screen resolution of 720×1500 pixels. The aspect ratio of the phone is giving wide viewing angles to the display and you get so much space to enjoy any multimedia or any game. Brightness of the screen is no issue as well because the screen is visible in every condition is it bright sunlight as well but this visibility is attained only when the brightness is almost next to maximum. The notch of the phone is another striking feature of the phone showing the company is keeping up with the latest trend of notch.
Powering the new Camon iClick 2 is 2GHz octa core MediaTek Helio P22 MTK6762 SoC processor with eight cores. Tecno has well understood the trick that for a phone to be successful it has to deliver smooth performance and the processor is exactly capable of delivering that. The phone worked smoothly without any lag in its processes, be it multi-tasking or playing games. The RAM size and the ROM of the Click 2 is similar to that of its predecessor which is 4GB RAM and 64 GB ROM. The plastic body sometimes do acquire some amount of heat especially when playing big games. Gaming experience is good as well and the graphic card installed is PowerVR GE8320 giving you HD quality experience without adjusting too much the graphic quality. Overall, the phone is capable of delivering all round performance with stability and consistency.
The new Camon iClick 2 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo based on the custom cased HiOS software and there are no much changes when compared to Camon iClick.
Tecno is clicking the attention of the users with the new Camon iClick 2 from its cameras. The new Camon iClick 2 is sporting dual rear camera sensors with primary sensor being of 13MP and 5MP respectively. The rear camera delivers crispy images with great refinements. The camera quickly adjusts according to exposures and the shots captured maintain all the natural colours without any deviation in them. The daylight shots are impressive and the night shots are equivalently clear and detailed. The zooming in while shooting images do make the lens unstable and some graining effects are also quite visible. The selfie camera is one of the major power point of the Camon iClick 2. The selfie camera is of 24MP and AI driven capable of delivering well detailed selfies which will surely buy some attentions of the selfie lovers. The selfie camera has an advantage of front LED flash which allows you to take selfies even brighter and clearer as compared to other phones with just display flash. There are various modes available as well like Bokeh, Beauty, and Panorama etc. which you can opt for according to your preference.
The battery power of the phone is of 3,750mAh and the same battery power was in the previous Camon iClick meaning there is no upgrade in the battery section. The battery lasts almost throughout the day if the phone is used moderately like some hours of playing games and some hours playing movies.
Tecno has focused on Design, Selfie Camera and Big Display to attract the buyers in the mid-segment. Tecno Camon iClick 2 ticks almost all the boxes of being a good mid-ranger. The AI-enabled cameras did well in daylight; Selfie lens remains its main USP in optics department which produces good selfies. The low light is bit of problem but, manageable to an extent. Battery capacity is huge too but drains quickly. At Rs 13,999, Tecno Camon iClick 2 can be a good option if you’re having a second thought to Xiaomi and Asus.
