Tecno Camon Vs Spark Series: Which gives the Best Price vs Features?

Tecno Camon vs Tecno Spark seriesIn the past, we’ve written about the features of Tecno Camon, but would like to compare same with Tecno Spark series.

This is because a lot of Tecno fans do ask this question and I have decided to give my perspective, verdict and tech advice on the best Tecno series to choose between the two.

The chief details I’ll be taking into consideration is the; stand-out features, specifications and special enhancements that comes with either of these (Camon/Spark) product line.

Tecno Camon  Series

The Tecno Camon series boasts of smartphones with affordable prices, stunning cameras, lovely music experience and decent-enough battery life. Camon CM, Camon CX, and Camon CX Air are the latest smartphones from this series and they’re all earning great impressions plus sales in the mobile market.

These three Tecno smartphones have some things in common especially the Tecno Camon CX and CX Air which are like twins in feature-specs.
