Tech Lass's Verdict:

Upgrading to the Tecno Camon CX Air by someone who has used or is currently using the Camon C9 might not actually be a good move since the CX Air specs are quite similar to that of last year's Camon. On comparing the basic features of the Camon CX Air with the Camon C9, most are the same. They both have similar RAM size, Internal memory storage capacity, same camera resolutions and no significant increment in the CX Air's battery capacity. 

The Camon C8 and C9 are among the most remarkable devices from Tecno and are still stirring a wave of excitement among users hence, they might not just be ready for the CX Air yet especially when most of its specs are similar to those of its predecessor. But if you want the latest device in the Camon series and the least expensive of both variants, then the Tecno Camon CX Air would be a good choice for you. You get a better optimized device that can save battery power, running on the latest Android OS, dual camera setup with dual flashes and a device with the latest design from Tecno.
