Forbes contributor Ben Sin, known for his honest tech product reviews, gave a glowing endorsement of the CAMON 17 Pro. “The phone is solidly built—its plastic back has a frosted finish that gives it a more premium feel; the side-mounted fingerprint scanner is fast and responsive; the screen pumps out vivid colors with respectable brightness; and the main camera is surprisingly capable,” he said. “The standout feature here is the 48-megapixel selfie camera, which uses an OmniVision sensor. It’s a fixed-focus lens, but sharpness and detail are both excellent. ” Ben also shared that he thinks “for its intended market, the Camon 17 Pro should be another hit.”
