The best smartphones today are arguably the ones with the best camera. If you're in the market for a new TECNO phone but are skeptical of the best one for photography, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to help you. Here’s our recommendation for TECNO’s best camera phone in 2023.

Which TECNO Phone Has the Best Camera Quality?

Best Camera Phones From TECNO in 2023

Pointing out the most suitable TECNO phone for photography isn’t straightforward. While these phones come with distinct designs, features, and unique selling points, their functions are similar. For that, we won’t focus on helping you fetch TECNO’s “best camera phone,” but help you find the one with the better camera.

If that’s it, then let’s jump into business. Here are the best camera phones from TECNO in 2023.

TECNO Camon 19 Pro (4G)

Starting with the latest and most improved TECNO phone of 2023, the CAMON 19 Pro has presented itself as the brand’s best camera phone. While it skips some of the hardware features we love about its predecessor, it makes up for them with the primary camera. That, I believe, is what most people use mostly on their phones.

TECNO CAMON 19 Pro features the industry’s first RGBW sensor, which aims at offering top-notch nighttime photography and overall better camera quality. Spec-wise, you get a 64MP primary camera, a fantastic 50MP portrait lens, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 32MP selfie shooter.

The device uses the 50MP telephoto lens by default when you switch to portrait mode. And in my experience, it does a fantastic job. I also enjoy the brilliant high dynamic range on the primary and telephoto camera, which keeps the shot balanced even in the trickiest situations.

If you care about the video quality as much as the photo quality, you won't be disappointed with the CAMON 19 Pro. The dynamic range does well at balancing the exposure, and the combination of OIS and EIS makes your footage less jittery. Besides that, it's the only TECNO phone with Professional Mode built into the camera app. That's an extra advantage if you know what it means.

The CAMON 19 Pro 5G and the regular CAMON 19 are fantastic alternatives, but this CAMON 19 Pro 4G is notably better - thanks to the dedicated portrait lens.

TECNO CAMON 18 Premier

Here's an admirable package if you’re more concerned about the most versatile TECNO camera setup in 2023. The CAMON 18 Premier features three impressive rear cameras. There's a 64MP Super Night sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide lens, and an 8MP periscope telephoto lens with 5x optical zoom and up to 60x digital zoom.

CAMON 18 Premier is also the first Android phone to feature gimbal stabilization but on an ultra-wide camera. And while that lets you record arguably the best-stabilized footage, we can all agree that ultrawide cameras aren't the best in terms of quality. But surprisingly, it does a fantastic job on the CAMON 18 Premier, thanks to TECNO’s in-house imaging lab.

The selfie camera is also pretty impressive, featuring a well-to-do 32MP shooter. Selfies come out nice, colorful and well-detailed. Anyone who loves taking selfies would love the CAMON 18 Premier.

TECNO Phantom X

You can’t talk about TECNO phones with the best cameras without mentioning the brand’s flagship device: the Phantom X. Besides its impressive triple camera setup, many people loved the Phantom X for its curved display and premium design. And that makes it one of TECNO's best phones even in 2023.

On the camera side of the thing, Phantom X features a triple rear setup: a flagship 50MP primary lens, a 13MP telephoto lens equivalent to a 50mm lens for crisp portrait shots, and an 8MP ultrawide lens. You’ll also find a dual 48MP + 8MP selfie shooter on the front.

The device’s 50MP flagship primary camera has Laser autofocus and Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), making it an incredible night shooter, even without the dedicated night mode. Being a flagship lens and TECNO’s only true-premium device, the Phantom X overshines the CAMON 18 Premier sometimes. It's, however, tricky to pick the best between them at the time.

Phantom X takes excellent videos as well. You can record up to 4K stabilized footage on the prime camera, as well as creamy videos on other lenses.

Overall, the Phantom X is a sleek package if you’re looking for the best TECNO phone available. Besides its incredible camera performance, the device is powered by the Helio G95 chipset with 8GB of RAM and a whopping 256GB of storage. You also get an enormous 4,700mAh battery with a 45W wired charger, so you can use the camera longer and juice up the battery faster.

TECNO SPARK 9 series

If you’re on the lookout for a budget TECNO phone with the best camera, you need to check out the latest SPARK 9 series. Specifically, the TECNO SPARK 9 Pro and SPARK 9T do well in photography, especially with selfies. No wonder TECNO markets them as their best smartphones for selfie lovers. They're simply affordable and outlandish for photography.

While neither of these devices is camera-centric or offers as many features as the CAMON and Phantom series, either can be a great start if you're on a tight budget.

Camon 19 Pro vs Camon 18 Premier

Which TECNO phone has the best camera quality?

CAMON 19 Pro offers the latest and most improved camera system on any TECNO mobile phone, making it easier to recommend as the brand’s best camera phone in 2023. The 50mm portrait lens is exceptionally suitable for taking creamy portrait shots and sometimes when you need to bring the subject closer. Besides that, the new 64MP RGBW sensor lives up to our expectations. It does well with both nighttime and daytime shots. The dynamic range is top-notch, and the 64MP mode produces detailed shots.  

However, you may want to lean towards the CAMON 18 Premier if you do a lot of zooming on your smartphone. Its 8MP periscope lens with 5X optical zoom produces crispy shots, even up to 10X, making it a fantastic package at that price range. The added Gimbal stabilization system on the ultra-wide lens is also a game-changer, not gimmicky.

After all, choosing your "best camera phone" between these two depends on your needs. But remember that the CAMON 19 Pro, being the latest, brings you the latest and most improved hardware and software features. In context, the phone offers the latest Android and HiOS versions, better battery life, a premium-looking design, and a lot more.
