Tecno Camon 16 Pro User Reviews and Opinions

2 COMMENTS

  1. I would go for the tecno camon 16 pro simply because of its camera specs and the helio G70 chipset that it uses. Good design and battery power as well.

  2. Tecno phones are actually not that well known but are secretly quite good. their integration with mediatek chipsets makes them even better I feel.
