  • I have a techno camon c8 and in some areas, it switches automatically to 4G(H+)network.Does this mean we got two brands of this phone bcz u said camon c8 don’t support 4G?

  • Got both J8 and c8 the only big diff is c8 dsnt support 4G bt its photos are more appealing than of j8 trust me…no other big diff

  • I have J8, it has both flashes but the pictures are not better than those of c8. When you zoom the picture, it is flou*. I do not know whether I failed to set well the camera. Morover, when headsets are in you cannot listen to music while writing a msg. Help please if you can

  • I don’t think its fair to compare the C8 vs J8 because of their age difference. The comparison should have been C9 vs J8. But if cost is a major factor, then it makes sense going for the cheaper C8. The only thing you’ll probably miss is the 4G capability and fast charge.

  • Hmmm boom j8 has better feature than camon c8 it has a new operating system called Hios why camon dont have it and it has front nd back camera flash

  • But in differences above they said J8 has no fron flash, now u guys said it has,which one ah dey believe na,infact am going 4 C9

  • Some said the J8 has no front flash,some said it has,which should i believe? PLS DOES THE J8 has front flash?

  • Boom j8 has both front n back flash lights trust me ..the picture quality is superb.. Boom J8 also comes with a free pouch n a lovely headset that makes music more beautiful… I love my boom j8

  • Am currently using the J8, even with front nd back camera is still nt bright. Is there anyway I can set it cos apart from that every other thing is OK.

  • The difference btw both phones don’t amount to much. Except the J8 supports 4G network. On that it’s no contest.

  • J8 has both back and front dedicated flash o… D fone is much superb to C8 trust me… U dnt want to miss out

  • do u know why i love c8 is because of the flash for front and back camara it will enable me chat with my people even when there is no light.it is a technological world atimes it needs face to face interaction mostly when it has to do with ur relations afar.since the b3 charging is the case get a small phone for ur calls and dnt allow the b3 die automatically.

  • i wd hv lov to go 4 c8 only if d price is 30 bt 36 i cn buhari no wan bring money oooo

  • I want to go for Boom J8 because of the 2 GB RAM but i’m afraid the camera has no flash. Can you possibly show some pictures taken with this phone?
