Tecno Camon 16 Pro vs vivo Y20s: Camon 16 Pro’s edge
The Camon 16 Pro has a massive 6.8-inch LCD screen with a slightly better resolution than its rival, simply meaning that it provides better images with greater detail, making it a joy for users who enjoy touching up their photos or mobile gaming.
It also has one more rear camera (which also boasts better numbers) than its rival, fielding a quad-rear camera setup. However, camera comparisons are not as straightforward as we may think, meaning that these numbers may not necessarily suggest the Camon 16 Pro offers a better photography experience.
Under the hood, the Helio G70 takes care of business, with faster processing speeds than its rival’s Snapdragon 460.
The Camon 16 Pro shares the same onboard storage as its rival, but brings more external memory to the fray.

Tecno Camon 16 Pro vs Vivo Y20s: Who Prevails In This Mid-range Duel?
Both devices offer 4G support, boast good camera specs and offer long-lasting batteries. But where exactly do we pitch our tent? The Vivo or the Camon 16 Pro?
The Y20s is a cheaper option than its counterpart and should be ideal for you if you are on the lookout for a device that lets you get your hands on some nice specs (with more RAM) at a decent cost.
However, the Camon 16 Pro brings a better display quality, letting users enjoy their favourite shows on a larger screen. It also has more cameras (rear and front) than the Y20s.
The Camon 16 Pro offers more external storage than its rival. However, it costs a little more than the Y20s, and should be a delight for smartphone gamers.
The Camon 16 Pro slightly edges this one, with its faster processor speeds, larger display and higher external memory coming to mind. However, its rival brings more RAM (for a better price) and can be a good pick for prospects looking for a smartphone with a bit more RAM than the 16 Pro.
