My Problem With Chinese Brands by Nobody: 4:53am On May 24, 2020
I have a budget of 40k

Here's the issue: I've used a Chinese phone before and I have to say performance is good but I had repair issues so I don't want to go down that path and I do not trust Tecno and their 1gb phones. I considered Nokia as they have Android One and can be repaired but the reviews are bad. How should I go about this?

Check Redmi 8a but you will need to increase your budget a little or better still check Umdigi thread on NL.

Apart from iPhone and Samsung phones,almost all phones you see and use here in Nigeria is Chinese,the Chinese have gradually edged most other phone makers on earth out of businesses. Do a proper research and purchase a phone that meets your demands and also falls within your budget,never ever fall for all these noise makers (marketers) here o,they are not sincere about any shit they post here o,they are only trying to earn their money.

The oil prices fell and the Naira is basically worthless on the Forex market.

In addition, goods are not entering the country due to this lockdown so sellers are using this scarcity to hike the prices of goods and services.

That's why everything is expensive.

I rather use a random unamed brand than use bullshit like hios or xos. Only truth there is the part about Samsung

Oga said he's scared because of repairs, I wonder if people buy phone's to repair them in a short while
Re: My Problem With Chinese Brands by Qsand: 5:32am On May 25, 2020
Buy a fairly used redmi 8a. Except you're not serious. Every top smartphone company has manufacturing plants in China. So in the end,, everything is still Chinese.
