Why you should buy the any of the 2019 Tecno Camon Series

All three phones are pretty decent at the price that they come with and for most people, the features of the Camon 12 Pro, including the screen fingerprint and the Amoled Display (perfect for dark mode) should make it a clear choice.

You should be looking at buying the Camon 12 Pro if you run a lot of heavy apps and don’t mind dishing out a higher amount to enjoy the 6GB of RAM and a high 32MP selfie camera experience.

However, for the fact that the Camon 12 Pro packs in a smaller battery (3500MaH Capacity) compared to the Camon 11 and Camon 11 Air (both have a 4000MaH battery) means the two other devices are worth exploring.

For those who are tight on a budget but are willing to enjoy the goodies that the Camon 12 offers, then the TECNO Camon 12 Air should be appealing enough. However, it only has 32 GB of internal space and 3GB of RAM, almost making it feel like the TECNO Spark 4 which was released earlier this year.

The Standard Tecno Spark 12 should be your buy if you are not looking to spend too much but willing to pay just a little higher to enjoy almost all of the features of the 2019 Tecno Camon phones. With the 4GB of RAM, you should be able to run a lot of the high memory consuming games with ease. Definitely buy this if you are looking to use the phone for a long time.
