A Particular Focus

Tecno markets the Phantom X2 Pro with a focus on its photography potential, not only because of the mechanical portrait lens but also the software integrated with the whole array.

The rear camera array is a head-turner unto itself, with two lenses looking like they’re ready to burst out of the back panel — partly by design given the portrait lens actually kind of does that already.

It’s a big phone by any measure, and noticeably heavier than comparable models, although its profile is actually pretty slim. The 6.8-inch AMOLED (2,400 by 1,080 pixels) has a 20:9 aspect ratio and 120Hz refresh rate. You get 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage without the option to expand on it since there’s no microSD card slot.

The MediaTek Density 9000 processor is supposed to be a high-end alternative to the best Snapdragon chipset, and while zippy, it won’t overtake the kind of performance we routinely saw in phones running on the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. That chip won’t be the new kid on the block in 2023 anyway, so it wouldn’t be a stretch to suggest this Tecno flagship is playing catch-up from the start.

Camera and Software Features

The Phantom X2 Pro technically isn’t the first phone to have a retractable lens, but it still feels like a novelty because you simply don’t see it as a common feature yet. In any case, there are two 50-megapixel lenses: one wide, one portrait. The latter has a 2.5x zoom (65mm equivalent) that pops up once you engage it in the camera app. While very much a telephoto lens, Tecno doesn’t term it that way, preferring to call out the portrait features. The unusually wide f/1.5 aperture also speaks to that as a way to increase the level of natural bokeh when shooting.

Tecno Phantom X2 Pro Review

The portrait lens uses Samsung’s ISOCELL JN1 image sensor, which is often used for telephoto or even front cameras. Meanwhile, the main wide 50-megapixel lens (23mm equivalent) with f/1.9 aperture uses a Type 1/1.3 Samsung ISOCELL GNV sensor — the same one previously seen in the Vivo X80 Pro. The 13-megapixel ultra-wide (16mm equivalent) uses a Samsung ISOCELL 3L6 image sensor with an f/2.2 aperture.

While the wide and portrait lenses are each 50 megapixels, pixel binning cuts them both down to 12.5-megapixel images. The only difference is the 50-megapixel mode can shoot at full resolution with the wide lens, though not the portrait one. There is also a 32-megapixel front camera with fixed focus and f/2.5 aperture.


Strangely, Tecno calls the auto mode “AI Cam,” which is also a referencing the elective AI settings you can toggle on or off. Even when off, Tecno’s software processes images in ways that make it seem like it’s still on. The “AI” in this case is a “color enhancement” and scene recognition meant to add more vivid output, a setting that doesn’t officially factor into the other modes, including portrait. Nevertheless, Tecno’s processing applies all over the software in one way or another.

Image Quality

Wide and Ultra-Wide Camera

Despite the weird layout and feature set, the Phantom X2 Pro can take good shots once you learn what makes it tick. I left the AI setting off to maintain as much of a natural look as I could get. I also tried shooting with HDR on or off, where again, the software would decide when to apply it and by how much.

Images have a vivid appearance without the extra AI setting, but I was pleased to see it wasn’t over the top. Without a pro or manual mode, the 50-megapixel mode is the closest you’ll get to shooting something with more pixels you can work on later in post. Sharpening tries to mimic results in the pixel-binned shots, but look closer and the results are obvious. Even so, dynamic range isn’t bad, including in varying circumstances.

Tecno Phantom X2 Pro Review

Video Features

I spent the most time capturing stills, but also looked at the two video modes. You can shoot in 4K at 60fps from either the wide or portrait camera, only the ultra-wide and front cameras max out at 1080p. Footage isn’t bad, but hardly anything to get excited about. Tecno’s processing applies to all video coming from the wide lens. It also does with the portrait one, except the visual effects are less pronounced, only increasing contrast instead. Regardless of what you shoot with, you can forget HDR video.

Not Quite Ready for its Closeup

The Phantom X2 Pro takes a unique approach in some respects, but its most unique feature is clearly the retractable portrait lens. And yet, it sometimes feels like an existing feature is matched by one that’s missing. Case in point, autofocus on all three rear lenses, yet no optical image stabilization on any of them. A fairly tough design, yet no official water resistance. A large screen, only with brightness that won’t match others on the market.
