Published

Loading...

The new TECNO Camon 12 is an amazing smartphone with premium features—amazing imaging, speed, latest in innovation and technology with all-round beauty—is not very common in this clime. TECNO has a knack for making this possible. They have just released a phone that will deliver premium features at a sweet price point. What phone?

TECNO just unveiled the 6th generation
of its Camera-centric line, the Camon 12 series, which has
the Camon 12, Camon 12 Pro as well as the Camon 12
Air.  The first impression and unboxing videos I have watched on YouTube
showcased a smartphone that is beautiful with impressive specs.

Out of the box, the Camon 12 comes in a Nebula gradient inspired look, which is patterned after the star lines. This is one element that cannot be overlooked, as it gives the device, an impressively stylish yet glossy look that reflects under light conditions.  Also, the Camon 12 comes in three colors –Bordeaux Red variant, Aqua Blue variant and Midnight Black variant, which gives you three lines of choice to pick from when choosing one that/to suit(s) your personality.

Did I also mention that the
device is impressively light? Yes, its 8.2 MM thickness makes it very light and
fits the hands properly when held – not to forget that the device is also very
trendy and stylish.

The Camon 12 comes with an anti-slip phone cover,  white earphones, a white USB cord, and a three-pin charger to go with it. You will also find an instruction manual; a warranty certificate; a Sim ejector as well as the Camon 12 in whatever color variant you have decided to buy in the box when you open it.

The TECNO Camon 12 is further proof that the brand is really big on Smartphone photography by packing this device with a handful of advanced camera feature updates.

As a user of Camon 12, you get to enjoy the 16 MP front camera, which is flanked by dual flashlights to enable you to take crystal-clear selfies under lowlight conditions. It is great to state that, this is a visible upgrade from its precedent, which was launched last year with a single front flashlight.

The device also comes with
an upgraded Beauty mode, which has an advanced 3D stereoscopic facial beauty to
make your selfie more natural and charming, interestingly, the beauty
mode also expands its scope to body beauty and video beauty.

Far from the usual selfie DNA
of the Camon Series, the Camon 12 packs a lot of
improvements with its Max Triple AI Rear Camera, of 16 MP+ 2
MP + 8 MP which indeed guarantees you the perfect picture output – as you can
now enjoy close-up shot without losing the smallest details due to the
inclusion of a 2CM Macro photography feature on this new device. The
macro photography mode will come in handy in scanning documents, or just simply
goofing around capturing images close up for fun or to showcase close up
details of a product.

The above image shows the exact picture quality you can get when using the Rear Camera of the Camon 12 to take a close-up shot, no fears TECNO has got you covered with the littlest of details when taking the perfect picture within a close range.

Also, with the rear camera, wide-angle photography takes a new stand, as users can enjoy up to  120° super-wide-angle shots –giving you the ability to capture amazing landscapes, cityscapes, and indoor architecture, without any hassle.

You do not have to worry anymore
about that not so fantastic background when taking your pictures,
the Camon 12 has an impressive Bokeh effect that helps you
blur out the background, leaving you with a flawless image. You could give it a
try.

Powered by MediaTek’s Helio P22 chipset which makes possible Smart AI imaging, AI Camera, reliable
connectivity and power efficiency — trust me, with all the power packed in
the Camon 12, the device would not get hot while performing powerful
functions due to this new premium chipset.

I must commend the longevity of the Camon 12 battery after a single charge. I sent a lot of emails, instant messaging, took photos, watched movies, listened to music and played games on its 6.52 HD dot-notch screen, which guarantees an amazing cinematic experience and I still had some juice (battery) left at the end of the day.

The Camon 12 comes with top-notch security features, worthy to mention is the rear-mounted fingerprint and Face ID unlock, which makes the device really cool. The speed the Face ID works at makes it my most preferred method of unlocking the phone.

All these features and the Camon 12 sells for only ₦47,500 in Nigeria, approx. Ksh. 15,000. That is premium features at a sweet price point as I mentioned from the start.

There is more. When you
purchase the Camon 12, you’ll also be given a raffle ticket that entitles you
for a raffle draw to win a trip to Europe courtesy of TECNO.

If
you are looking out for my evaluation of the device, then here you have it, the
Camon 12 is an amazing device to have. I score it an 8/10.

Haraka Haraka app to link customers with service providers

Published

on

Loading...

A new App dubbed “Haraka Haraka” has today been unveiled in Kenya to help customers find the right service providers in their current location within a specified range of choice.

The platform was invented by three former Meru University of Science and technology students and with the app, they seek to make it easier for people to find services such as a plumber, retailers, shops and house agents that have been difficult to get physically.

The team, Mr Kelvin Muinde, Mr Pius Momanyi Nyachio and Mrs Naum Mutie said there are currently about 3,500 users who are potential clients and service providers on the platform who include carpenters, hairdressers, plumbers and mechanics, and more.

“We are taking away the burden of searching for experienced and reliable professional businesses in a hassle-free model to deliver critical services to individuals who are in need of their specific location,” said Pius Momanyi Nyachio who is the Marketing Manager.

Mr Kelvin Muinde, who is the head of the project said the idea to start Haraka Haraka was initiated out of his observance of people having difficulty in finding a reliable service in an area that they are not well conversant with.

“The biggest challenge customers face is finding the right service providers at any area, mostly if you are not familiar, most people end up getting poor services that cost them time and resources,” he said.

To find any service or to register as a service provider, individuals are requested to first download the Haraka Haraka App on Google and register where later one can choose a range between 100m to 30km to find the service they are in need of.

The app also comes with an option of reviewing and rating a service provider which acts as an advantage to next service seekers enabling easy referrals to new clients.

‘’The registration to the app is free for both users and professionals,’’ said Mr Kelvin Muinde. The company’s aim is to hit 10,000 users by the end of this year. Ideally, they plan to have a maximum of 30,000 professionals on the platform.
