  • The image you used on this post is actually of the Tecno W3, the Camon C7 has a similar design build as the Camon C9, but just smaller (5 inch screen). Correct that.

    hi, i have a question

    Is it true that phones from Jumia and kilimall do not last compared to phones bought from actual stores?

    • Hi j,

      No, it isn’t true. It all depends on whether you bought an original or a counterfeit. An original smartphone bought online, will provide better performance than a fake bought from an offline store.

      The performance of the phone has less to do with the medium you used to purchase it. It’s more of whether it’s a fake one or an original one. When purchasing the phone online, be keen on the seller and the reviews posted by previous buyers.

        Hi Kevin,

        Which seller would you recommend, i was told that if you are buying phones like techno and infinix if they have a problem and are taken to callcare they will not accept to check the device for you?

        i am also having a hard time deciding which phone is good between techno c7, infinix hot 4 and infinix hot 3 lte and tecno l9, htc desire 820 and htc desire 626+ Asus Zenfone Go ZB500KL. if you could help i would appreciate. Thanx
