Avoid the Rush

Yes! you have to avoid the rush since you might buy something that you will regret later. You need to take time and go for the kind of smart phone you really want.

Avoid competition

There shouldn’t be any competition when buying a smart phone. The kind of smart phones others are using shouldn’t lead you to buying yours. You don’t need to compete, its not necessary. Just buy what your money can afford.

Avoid buying used smart phone


Most people buy used smart phone or what we call second hand and get a lot of problems later. In other to avoid this, you need to buy a smart phone which is new and can last longer. Especially the life span of the battery.


Avoid buying smart phone on the street


Buying any item on the street is not right and buying smart phone on the street is not an exception. Most of these people selling smart phones on the street are fraudsters and they can sell a bad smart phone to you. So please advise your self and do the right thing.

I agree with you on this @op, i decided to have extra phone so I saw this very beautiful looking tokunbo phone to my surprise it's having 3gb Ram & 32gb internal memory, with this features I don't even think twice before buying it hoping it will be even more faster than my phone but it's a pity that even Nairaland homepage the phone can't load. cry Snail is faster than the shit

Re: Things To Avoid While Buying A Smartphone by henrixx(m): 8:34pm On Feb 15, 2018
so op....for instance I bought a phone one month ago and I need some cash and I decide to sell does that put the buyer in any risk? or I use a phone for a year in perfect condition and decide to feel something new or upgrade. even if you buy new phone a time will come when you have to sell.

there are many used phones that are in perfect condition... also there are many new phones that come with defect. people don' buy used phones flexx am for years. while there are people who have bought new phones that packed up in months.

bottom line is follow your heart and respect your pocket. and Most of all be careful and pray for luck.
