Tecno Camon 30 Pro battery life test results are ready

Peter, 30 April 2024

We’re putting the finishing touches on the Tecno Camon 30 Pro review, but we wanted to share the results from our battery life test early as they are fairly impressive. The phone will be compared with the Premier and they do have the same batteries (5,000mAh, 70W charging) and the same chipset (Dimensity 8200 Ultimate), but the Pro model edged out its pricier sibling by a full hour in our Active use score chart.

Looking at the breakdown, the phone stands out with its gaming endurance (it lasted just over an hour longer), longer web browsing time (just under an hour longer) and phone calls. We mentioned the battery and chipset, but we should also mention the screen.

The Pro model has a 6.78” 144Hz OLED with 1,080 x 2,436px resolution, while the Premier has an LTPO OLED panel with a higher resolution of 1,264 x 2,780px and the refresh rate is up to 120Hz. Normally, we associate LTPO with lower power usage, but in this case it seems that the extra resolution tipped the scales the other way.

Note that we calibrate the screen to 200 nits brightness before testing, so the phones are on equal footing, despite their different panels (aside from the inherent advantages and disadvantages of each panel, of course).

Compared to other phones, the Tecno Camon 30 Pro is one of the best performers in its class. Something like the Galaxy A55 gets a full hour less on the Active use time, while a Redmi Note 13 Pro does much worse overall despite having 100mAh bigger battery. The vivo V30 Pro, which (more or less) the same Dimensity 8200 chipset and has the same 5,000mAh battery capacity scored on par with the Premier at 13:25, but behind the Pro.

The Camon 30 Pro is shaping up to be a great device from Tecno, though we still have more tests to cover – the full review is coming up soon!

Them finishing touches are taking at least a month by now. It's understandable though because GSM has been flooded by new phones almost daily, and some requires priority review due to partnerships and the fact it's more popular. Hoping...

Thats good, if there were no game battery data people wouldnt be misled. There is no value in a battery test like that, yes.
