Tecno Camon iACE 2X Design And Display
This device is made of plastic as expected of a device in this price bracket. It comes in two; Blue and Black. The back is occupied by a dual camera setup with an LED flash at the top left corner of the device’s back with the fingerprint sensor at its usual spot – centre. Overall the device weighs 150 grams and measures 8.5mm in thickness just its sibling.
The display is also identical; a 5.5-inch 720p IPS LCD display with a pixel per inch density of 293 and an aspect ratio of 18:9. The front-facing camera, proximity sensor and speaker grill all sit comfortably at the huge bezel at the top, leaving the equally sized bottom bezel vacant.
The dual rear camera setup on the TECNO Camon iAce 2X comprises of a main 13MP camera with an f/1.8 paired with a secondary 0.3MP camera which helps make portrait photos possible. It is also equipped with a dual-LED flash for low light photos, HDR for good dynamic range and Panorama for wide angle shots. 1080p video recording is also possible at a maximum of 30fps. As for selfies, this device uses a front-facing 8MP camera which has an f/2.0 aperture and can be used for Face Unlock a.k.a FaceID.
Hardware and Software
Inside this device is a MediaTek Helio A22 SoC; A 12nm based SoC which has a Quad-Core processor clocked at 2.0GHz alongside a PowerVR GE8320 GPU. It is accompanied by a bigger 3GB of RAM for smooth multitasking and 32GB of expandable storage for files. The storage space can be expanded further via a microSD card, up to 128GB. TECNO Camon iAce 2X also runs TECNO’s HiOS 4.1 out of the box, just like its sibling. HiOS 4.1 is based on the not so latest Android Operating System – Android 8.1 Oreo.
Battery & Network Connectivity
This device is powered by a decent sized 3,050mAh battery capacity. However, there is no fast charging support. It also has dual 4G VoLTE connectivity, WiFi, WiFi direct, WiFi hotspot, Bluetooth, GPS, 3.5mm jack, Face Unlock a.k.a FaceID and a micro USB port with support for USB On The Go.
The iAce 2X uses a 3050mAh battery that lasts about a work day. During our use, we streamed videos, music and played casual games and still, it managed to survive till the end of the entire day. However, it must be said that battery life is completely subjective and it depends on individual use
The hardware feature that separates the Tecno Camon iAce 2X from the iAce 2 is the amount of RAM supplied. The 2X features 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage expandable up to 128GB. For a handset priced at this range, this is not so common as most of the handsets in and around this segment come with 2GB of RAM. Lastly, the handset is powered by a quad-core Helio A22 (MediaTek 6761) SoC that’s clocked at 2.0GHz.
When it comes to day-to-day tasks, the Camon iAce 2X performs its duties efficiently; however, when pushed to the max it tends to struggle a bit. This isn’t a phone for the performance seeker but is for basic streaming of music and videos, social media and instant messaging. While you can’t play graphic intensive games such as Asphalt 9 and alike, expect to see flawless performances otherwise. We didn’t observe any overheating even while casual gaming for longer periods.
The Tecno Camon iAce 2X is priced at Rs 7,599 and with it, you get a host of features that are rare in this price range. To highlight some of the USPs here, we would say that the camera and UI are something that the brand offers n a lower price as compared to some Rs 10,000 handsets out there. So, if you are a new smartphone user or upgrading from a feature phone and your budget falls within the Rs 8K mark, the Tecno Camon iAce 2X gets our recommendation.
