The Camon 15 Premier is the best from the folks at Tecno at the moment and you can be sure it’s a good one. It is 6.6 inches tall from top to base. The front is made of glass while the body and frame are made of plastic. The camera array is perfectly aligned to the top-left corner and it looks great.
The phone’s face is an ocean of uninterrupted glass. No punch hole or teardrop anywhere. Just glass. This is called the perfect view display and the camon 15 is the first from Tecno to feature it. Where then is the Selfie camera located? It’s right umder the display and only comes out when it’s needed. Tush, right?
This phone features more than a smooth face, the display is also one of the best from Tecno. At 1080 x 2340 and featuring 390 pixels per inch, the camon 15 premier offers you a peak into a higher level of graphical rendition. That display really isn’t cheap.

Like its opponent, this phone is comes in a plastic plus glass body. The plastic is specially designed and has the premium feel as well.
Unlike the Camon phone, the Note 7 sport an Infinity display. This means there’s an interruption to the frontal glass. In this case, a punch hole to the tiop-left which houses the selfie camera.

Tecno Camon 15 Premier and Infinix Note 7 Comparison
Though these phones make a good comparison. It’s not any less difficult to pick one single winner. That’s because each person may have to choose based on their needs. Personally, I’ll base my choice on Chip and CPU. For that, the Note 7 wins. The higher, the better.
However, the Camon 15 premier has a better display. It features a higher resolution and pixel density. The main camera is 64MP. The macro lens is 5MP. The front camera also is 32MP. But the CPU and chip are below my expectations.
The Note 7, though sporting a better CPU and chip has its shortcomings. It sports a 16MP selfie cam. The main camera is 48MP. The display is also not as great.
The question now though, is “Can you buy the Camon 15 Premier at NGN105k”? In my opinion, it is too expensive. In a few days time, Both of these phones will be compared to another one in the 100k price range from Xiaomi or Huawei or both.
