TecnoCamon i4 execution, cameras, and battery life

The Camon i4 has enough execution for fundamental errands, for example, utilizing WhatsApp and performing multiple tasks with a few applications, however knock the heap up and you will see that this telephone battles to keep up.
The 2GB of RAM is a bottleneck, and we found that there was distinctly around 1GB of RAM free in the wake of utilizing the Phone Master application. Face acknowledgment is accessible however isn’t actually quick, and the capacitive unique finger impression scanner at the back opens the telephone impressively snappier.

When shooting against the light, we noticed purple bordering. Macros were shockingly great and the telephone oversaw great detachment among subjects and foundations. It was anything but difficult to change to the wide-edge camera to catch a more extensive field of view, yet this camera needs self-adjust and should just be utilized for scenes.
In low light, the camera regularly neglected to bolt concentrate consequently and required us to tap the screen to center.
