Published

on

Tecno is apparently one of the few smartphone brands that bring stylish and feature-loaded phones under mid-budget category. The brand has been so consistent in bringing affordable smartphones so far and CAMON series is primarily the flagship series by Tecno. Tecno CAMON 16 is the latest addition to this series and Tecno assures to offer the industry-leading features in this smartphone. Telecom Today reviewed this phone to share honest feedback about its overall features, camera, battery, and most important performance.

Unboxing 

Apart from device you get all required accessories in the box which includes a charging adapter that comes with the impressive build quality. Along with this you get a micro USB charging cable, you are not getting Type-C cable in this box so here we are a little disappointed, but this will not be a big concern for buyers. Also, you get a transparent back cover, user manual, warranty card, and SIM ejector Pin in the box. 

First Impression 

Tecno CAMON 16 smartphone is probably one of the best smartphones in CAMON series if we talk about its design and build quality. You get a very nice curved and shining body that gives you a good hand feel. Also, it looks very premium, the body has really nice finishing on the rear side. So, it seems to offer good value under the budget price range. 

Display

Tecno CAMON 16 comes equipped with a large 6.8-inch HD+ Dot-In-Display. You get 89.1% screen-to-body ratio which offers a good viewing experience. The content looks sharper and the quality of the content is really impressive due to the HD+ display. 

Camera 

The camera remains the key aspect in every smartphone and the brands try to deliver the best photography experience to users. Tecno CAMON 16 comes equipped with a powerful 64MP Ultra quad-camera setup. The camera is designed in the square shape and looks very amazing. In the camera setup, you get a 2MP depth control lens, 2MP Macro shot lens, 64MP primary camera, and an AI lens. The quality of pictures taken with CAMON 16 is detailed, sharper, and very bright. Tecno has provided 10x Zoom in the camera which helps you to capture the objects with great details. You can explore pro photography modes such as Night Portrait, Macro, Body-shaping, 10x Zoom, etc, or shoot perfect Slow-motion, video Bokeh, or 2K QHD videos for a memorable experience. While the unique Eye Autofocus feature, found on a few high-end smartphones and mostly DSLR cameras, enables one to stabilize focus around the eyes and makes the portraits sharp. 

For selfie lovers, Tecno has given a 16 MP Dot-In-Selfie camera with which you will be able to click bright selfies. The phone consists a Super Night Shot mode that will help you to click the best selfies even in low light conditions. So the overall camera setup is really nice in the mid-budget segment and you can’t get more at this price point.

Performance 

Tecno CAMON 16 boasts MediaTek Helio G70 SoC processor which is a Hyper Engine Fast AI performer that is great for gaming and daily robust usage. The gaming becomes very easy when you get such a powerful processor and we played some heavy games but we didn’t notice any performance issue or heat issues. You can do multi-tasking with CAMON 16 as we are really impressed with it’s performance during the testing.    

Price 

TECNO CAMON 16 comes only in 4GB + 64GB storage option and you can buy this phone in two colors Purist Blue and Cloud White. This smartphone has all the leading features that you get in high-end phones but the best thing about this phone is its affordability. CAMON 16 is priced at Rs. 10,999 and it’s quite suitable if you evaluate its specifications, so you are getting a pretty good deal. 

Telecom Today Rating 

Now it’s time to share our honest feedback and review. We measured its performance over several parameters that help us to evaluate its performance on a different basis. The performance of this smartphone doesn’t get affected while playing games or doing many tasks simultaneously. Apart from this, the camera is definitely an impressive part of this phone. The 64MP ka Ultra quad-camera helps you to click sharp and bright pictures. So overall it’s been a quite good experience with Tecno CAMON 16 smartphone and we are impressed with this mid budget smartphone from Tecno. So we give this phone 4 stars rating out of 5 and it is quite good rating.

Product Review: AVITA Essential

Published

on

AVITA recently launched its latest budget-friendly laptop AVITA Essental in India. We received this laptop for review so let’s check out what this laptop has to offer.

AVITA Essential Laptop Design

AVITA Essential is a quite modern and stylish laptop like the other models being offered by AVITA. The laptop seems to be an attention driver as its design and texture is really unique. The laptop comes in a cloth texture design and has a plastic body so it is slightly lightweight. Its actual weight is 1.37 Kgs which is not so heavy and allows you to carry it easily anywhere. However, the AVITA Essential is a budget-friendly laptop but due to its slim and unique design, it will give you premium laptop feel.

Apart from its design, there is nothing to see except the connectivity ports that are given on the backside of the laptop. It is to make this laptop free from tangled wires on the left and right sides. AVITA Essential laptop has one jack to power the laptop, 2 USB 3.0 Type-A ports, one full-size HDMI port, a microSD card slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. There are two 0.8W speakers underneath the laptop which are provided on either side to make a balance for a good audio output.

Keyboard for comfortable Typing

AVITA Essential laptop comes with a big keyboard which allows you more comfort while typing. The typing speed gets enhanced with a full-size keyboard and makes the typing experience even better. The keys of the laptop are designed in a way to provide perfect gripping. Apart from it, the touchpad of the laptop is a little bigger than the usual size.

Anti-Glare Display with Narrow Bezels

Today most of the budget category laptops don’t come with a narrow bezel display and carry the conventional display with thick bezels. But AVITA has gone an extra mile to provide a great viewing experience to its users by bringing a laptop with 4mm thin bezels. This is an anti-glare display so it doesn’t fend-off the quality of the content when we watch anything from side angles. Also, the display has 1920 x 1080 resolution to support HD content. However, the screen is not so much brighter and vibrant which disappoints to an extent.

The 2MP webcam has been given near the keyboard because of the narrow bezels. This angle is a little disappointing because it might not show the face correctly and you will have a bit of disappointment while being in a virtual meeting or doing video chat.

AVITA Essential Specifications and Performance

The laptop falls under the budget category but it doesn’t make any impact on its performance as the laptop is packed with some good features. AVITA Essential comes with an Intel Celeron N4020 processor. Also, the laptop has Intel UHD graphics inside so it will let you have a smooth user experience. AVITA Essential comes with a 3200mAh battery and AVITA commits upto 6 hours of backup. During our review, we got around 2-3 hours of battery support which is not so bad. The laptop runs on Windows 10 Home for a smooth and secure user experience.

As far as storage is concerned, AVITA Essential has something great to offer. The laptop comes with 4G DDR4 RAM and 256GB M.2 SSD. Due to the inbuilt SSD, the performance of the laptop has got a boost and we don’t see any lagging issues on the device. Moreover, the boot time of the laptop is nearly 10 seconds which is great.

AVITA Essential Price

MRP of AVITA Essential is INR 27,790 and it is available in three color variants, Matt White, Matt Black, and Concrete Grey. Pricing may differ depending on purchase platform.  

Telecom Today Verdict

AVITA has done a quite good job as AVITA Essential is really a nice laptop under budget. It is one of the ideal laptops for budget-conscious consumers who don’t want to spend much and want good features. The design of the laptop is really outstanding and it won’t let you feel that it is a budget category laptop. Also, the performance is good according to the features given on the laptop. People who are working from home and students who are learning from home can once consider this laptop for their daily work.

Product Review: Kingston Canvas Go! Plus SDCG3 MicroSD Card

Published

Product Review: AVITA Essential

Kingston recently upgraded its Canvas portfolio of SD cards with the launch of its new Canvas Go! Plus microSD cards. The Canvas Go Plus series offers storage capacities starting from 64GB and goes up to 512GB. We received the 256GB variant microSD cards for review. The microSD card comes along with an optional SD adapter. We tested the canvas series storage product on various parameters during the review. Read below the complete and detailed review:

As per Kingston, the Canvas Go Plus memory card support blazing fast read/write speeds up to 170/90MB/s. These storage products can help you shoot 4K UHD videos and high-quality pictures with ease. These memory cards are ideal for those who love to shoot on DSLR/GoPro cameras for excellent pictures and videos. Additionally, Kingston stated that Canvas Go Plus memory cards are waterproof, temperature proof, shock and vibration proof and X-ray proof. So we were quite happy with the review of this product from Kingston. 

Performance

Although, the company says that it can deliver 170/90MB/s read and write speed, but we wanted to be assured from our end. So we went through a speed test for its read and write speed. First, we checked its write speed which generally means that we transferred a 4GB file from our Lenovo AIO PC to the Canvas Go! Plus MicroSD card. The data file included high-quality pictures, MP3 files, MP4 files, ZIP files, some word documents and etc. The memory product recorded data transfer speed upto 82.5MB/s. Such write speed is considered good and it can save your time while being in an urgency to copy your data from any device to the SD cards. 

After checking its write speed, we moved ahead to check the read speed. The read speed means transferring the data from the storage device to your local device. We transferred that 4GB data file from the Canvas Go! Plus memory card to our Lenovo AIO PC. The read speed was also commendable as the memory card recorded 158.2MB/s speed. 

The read/write speed of the Canvas Go! Plus MicroSD card is amazing and there is one more good news for those who are looking to buy the Canvas Go! Plus device. The memory card comes with a lifetime warranty which means you do not have to worry about its quality. Kingston has shown a commitment to the quality of its product by offering a lifetime warranty. 

As the microSD card is capable of shooting the 4K videos, we used the memory card for shooting videos in our DSLR camera. The overall experience while shooting the videos and clicking the pictures was truly overwhelming. We can say that this device is good for professional photographers/videographers.

Price & Availability  

The Kingston Canvas Go! Plus microSD Card is priced at INR 4600 and available across online platforms. 

Telecom Today Verdict 

The Canvas Go! Plus microSD card from Kingston is really a great offering and it is good for today’s content creators who work on big storage files. Data transfer used to be a tough task but with the Canvas Go! Plus storage, it is no more a challenge as per our own experience. The data transfer speed which we experienced was really great. Moreover, its compatibility is also noticeable. The memory card worked well with our DSLR and we did not face any issue while shooting the videos or while copying the videos/pictures from the SD card to our PC. This Canvas series is aimed at professionals who can boost their performance. We find Canvas Go! Plus MicroSD worthy in our review and we give it 4 stars out of 5.
