Dear Nairalanders,

Sincere greetings to you all. Even though all the political parties are busy trying to outdo each other, we the techies will stick to our business which is to talk tech things. We will have their time when the elections come around. For now, let them keep at their business, we will keep at ours too.

I have always wondered why phone manufacturers like Samsung and HTC would sell an Android phone for over 70k when then OS itself isn't proprietary. Have always believed it should be cheaper. Take for instance, the new HTC and Samsung phones that run the Android 4.4 Kitkat. the Android OS isn't theirs why should they make customers part with huge amounts to get just a phone. But after I bought a phone on Jumia called Innjoo i1s, I realised that what Samsung and HTC are selling are not just phones loaded with an Android OS but phones that have gone through rigorous Quality Assurance tests and certified by the appropriate standard organisations.

I was glad to see a phone on sale on Jumia which costs just N13,999 that is dual-sim enabled and it runs on Android 4.4 Kitkat. Yeah you read the price right, just N13,999 for an Android phone that runs the 4.4 Kitkat. I thought this was too good to believe, so i quickly placed my order and got from a nice Jumia call centre agent confirming my order and the delivery address and my mode of payment. After about 4 days my order arrived. I unpacked, charged, and started using it. I even convinced so many peeps in my office to buy. Some of them still think am an Innjoo agent.

After a while the true nature of the phone appears. the phone is full of so many bugs and memory issues. I will quickly list the problems for those with intentions of buying these phones.

1. Damaged sd card: Anytime my Innjoo i1s goes off and I charge and put it back on, I get a damaged sd card error. This damaged sd card is referring to the phone memory mind you and the only solution to this is to format the phone and do factory reset

2. Not enough memory: You think this shouldn't be a problem with the advancement of storage technology, but in these Innjoo phones memory is an issue. I have the i1s, once i try updating any app all I get is 'not enough memory to update this app', meanwhile I haven't downloaded anything on the phone. Friends using the Innjoo i2 phones have also complained about the same issue. I can't update any of my apps and games. To make matters worse, after Innjoo received many complaints about this issue, you wouldn't believe what their solution is. A flashing guide and ROM was provided on their website for all customers to use in flashing their phones. I was like this can't be true. For a phone company to tell customers to flash their phones with a fake software provided on their website. And this flashing guide and ROM didn't work for those who have tried it. For those who flashed successfully, they lost GSM signal after rebooting

3. Audibility of conversations: I know by now you are thinking all these issues on a phone. After you use the Innjoo phones for about 4weeks, audibility of conversations during a call becomes a problem. You might have to put the phone on speaker to hear your friend at the other end well.

I am not one of those who try to spoil a man's business but after sending them countless mails and dropping many long messages on their facebook page, facebook.com/Innjoo, without any reply, I have decided to alert Nigerians to the faults in these phones.

Instead of solving their i1s and i2 phones' problems, [b]Innjoo [/b]simply made an i2s with a bigger storage than i2, thereby leaving people with the i2 to figure out what to do with their phones.

Please watch out for these phones on Jumia.com, they come cheap though but they are not good phones. Am stuck with my i1s now not knowing what to do.

A word is enough for the wise.

when did you buy your phone because am sure memory issue is general and Innjoo has released a statement on their site concerning that. you might want to visit innjoo.com to confirm this. I guess you only make calls with your phone then. And when was it bought?

am surprised you guys aren't experiencing the memory thing. even Innjoo has realised this and put out the flashing rom on their website http://www.innjoo.com/Support/storage_solution . it just shows the poor quality of these phones. A woman who bought in my office can't hear conversations except she puts the phone on speaker, while the audibility is reduced significantly for some others in my office. But they all have this storage issue. this is the link to the solution proferred by Innjoo for storage solution http://www.innjoo.com/Support/storage_solution. It is also on their facebook page facebook.com/Innjoo.

Well, those are the 1st set of Innjoo phones that were made. The 1st set only had those problems u stated, buh am not sure of the loudspeaker thing u mentioned.

Although Innjoo corrected the errors by rolling out new i1s phones, which no longer have memory issues because that's the one I bought from Jumia. That is why Innjoo users here do not complain of "Low Memory" issue except battery.



Like I said earlier, I do not experience ANY problem since I started using this phone

Sorry bro, I think you bought the defective one...Come to think of this..all this electronic produce are luck..I bought Samsung S5 from slot in Lagos..because is a shop to trust for quality product..After some month, I mean 2month and 5 Days..my phone will just hang until I do force restart*Removing the Battery*..I did it one day and the phone refuse to on...I took it to post office in maiduguri to check..and they said is board problem so I sent it to slot and gave them ultimatum ..
To cut the story short I did not enjoy it so It and bought low end phone...good in design but hot a lot..but works perfect and I bought innjoo i2s and is superb.....

I mean working without clause and the battery is not too bad..mind you..I don't play games on my phone I only use it for Internet, but 24/7...

Moreover Yoruba adage says...The size of a rat hand is what it USE to cover is eye..if 104k phone is not perfect then don't expect much from 14k...my opinion
