(Review) Tecno Camon 17 Pro compared to Camon 17 and Camon 17P
As i said earlier, Camon 17 was accompanied by 2 other versions but with lesser features and if you care to know what differentiate the 17 Pro form other versions then read this carefully.
Display & Design
Camon 17 Pro has the same screen size of 6.8 inches as Camon 17P while the Camon 17 has a 6.6-inch display. You might find it hard differentiating between The P and Pro version of the Camon 17. When it comes to design they both look great with almost the same design. what differentiates them is the features.
Looking at the back, both Camon 17 Pro and Camon 17P have quad rear camera aligned vertically at the left side of the phone while Camon 17 has triple rear cameras in the same position. Another thing that differentiates the Pro and P version from the norm Camon 17 is the side-mounted fingerprint sensor which the 17 version doesn’t have but comes with a rear-mounted sensor.
Judging from the display and design, you will agree with me that Camon Pro and Camon 17P are better than the normal Camon 17 but as well more expensive too.
Operating System and Processor
Both versions of the Camon 17 is equipped with Android 11, HIOS 7.6, when it comes to the chipset, Camon 17 and 17P has MediaTek Helio G85 along with an Octa-core processor. Camon 17 Pro on the other hand comes with a more advanced Mediatek Helio G95 chipset, Octa-core processor as compared to other versions.
Looking at the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), Camon 17 Pro is built with Mali-G76 MC4 while the normal Camon 17 and 17P has Mali-G52 MC2 which shows that Camon 17 Pro is better. If you are looking for the best gaming smartphone then consider Tecno Camon 17 Pro as the best choice.
Memory Size (RAM & ROM)
When it comes to memory size, Camon 17 Pro is the best with 8GB random access memory (RAM) and up to 256GB read-only memory (ROM). The next is Camon 17P with 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM followed by Camon 17 with 4/6GB RAM + 64/128GB ROM.
Most of the Camon 17 smartphones comes in different variations in terms of memory sizes and it’s left for you to choose according to your needs and desire. If big Processing Memory and storage memory is what you consider most in a smartphone then consider Tecno Camon 17 Pro as the right option for you as long as you can afford to pay extra cash for it as compared to other versions in terms of the price.
Camera capacity and features
The 3 versions of Camon 17 comes with good quality cameras and I recommend any of them for those that need a good phone with a high-quality camera. However, I am going to specify each phone with the camera quality and features below.

Looking at the camera features above, you will agree with me that both phones are great in terms of camera. Camon 17P is good but Camon 17 Pro is better especial the front camera with 48MP while others offer 16MP.
Tecno did a great work by powering both versions of Camon 17 with 5000 mAh battery capacity which clearly put the new smartphones on the list of phones with good reliable battery. However, looking at the capacity, there is no clear winner among the 3 versions of Camom 17 phones.
What differentiates them is the fast charging features, Tecno Camon 17 Pro is equipped with 25W Fast charging features while Camon 17 and Camon 17P has 18W Fast charging which indicates that Tecno Camon 17 Pro will charge more faster than others.
