Both the TECNO Camon CX and Oppo F3 have their unique selling points. Where as the TECNO Camon CX truly delivers as a mid-range camera phones, the F3 also equally delivers.

The main difference is with the price, with the Camon CX having a price tag that’s almost half that of the OPPO F3. I guess the extra price is to pay for the more powerful performance profile.

In a nutshell. the Camon CX will appeal to buyers balling on a budget, while the F3 will be a match for buyers who don’t mind wiggling their budget.

The TECNO Camon CX takes this one.
