2-Minute Review

Let's cut through the noise, and get to the crux of it. 3 Expert Reviews analysed and summarised by the PhoneCurry Editorial Team, in a short and sweet 2-minute review.


  • Modern design with a waterdrop-style notch screen
  • Nice looking mirror-finish back
  • The frame of this phone is made out of plastic and is rounded, which makes it easy to hold
  • Fingerprint scanner at the back works well
  • Face recognition is on the slow side


  • Big 6.2-inch display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and good outdoor legibility


  • HiOS UI includes lots of add-on features like gesture navigation, raise-to-wake gesture, ability to launch apps by tracing alphabets on the screen, double-click-to-broadcast feature which broadcasts the time and the weather when you double tap the display, flip-to-mute gesture, and music gestures that let you control music by swiping on the display
  • There is also a WhatsApp mode in that restricts background data access to WhatsApp alone, and only lets other apps use it when they are active
  • There is support for some UI customisation using the Hi Theme app
  • Swiping right from the homescreen will take you to a search screen that also shows a list of recently used apps and a news feed
  • There is also plenty of bloatware that comes preinstalled


  • Pretty average performance for this price bracket with a Helio A22 inside (similar to Snapdragon 615) - while basic use is alright, start using heavier apps, and you will see the phone start to lag - competitors like the Asus ZenFone Max Pro M2 and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 have much more powerful processors


  • The highlight of the phone is the triple camera setup (13-megapixel primary camera with an f/1.8 aperture, an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor) which isn't very common on phones in this price bracket
  • You will get some good photos in daylight, and macros are surprisingly good
  • The wide-angle sensor comes in handy for shooting landscapes
  • The AI Cam mode is buggy and tends to detect ‘sport' every time the phone moves even a little
  • Low light performance is average - the output tends to have a lot of graininess
  • Edge detection is also average when using the bokeh mode
  • Selfies are decent enough to go on social media but lack detail when you zoom in
  • Video recording maxes out at 1080p for the rear and the selfie cameras - there is no image stabilisation, which means that footage is shaky
  • Overall, while the triple camera setup is a rarity for this price bracket and the ultra-wide sensor might offer some versatility, the overall camera quality of the Camon i4 is just about decent, and nothing exceptional


  • Good battery life with a 3500mAH battery - you should comfortably get over a day of use
  • Decent (though not great) charging speed with the company's proprietary Rocket charging technology - the supplied 10W charger takes less than two hours to charge this phone completely


  • Overall, the Tecno Camon i4 will find it difficult to compete with the fierce competition from the likes of Xiaomi, Realme and Asus, that offer more bang for the buck
