Poverty is the cause of this. If not for lack of money no sane individual will choose a tecno phone over a Samsung, apple, Oppo or xiaomi phone.

Your mentality tells you that not reality

Tecno and infinix devices aren't in the top 30 phone brands in China, they're basically non existent there. Their devices are sold mainly in Pakistan, India and Africa.

if you are going to dominate any market in this era, you must study the locality of the region, the buying power of the market, how Large the market is and also the peculiarities of the market so as to give the people within the region the best and what specifically suit them.

that's what TECNO MOBILE has always done, no wonder they could overtake a mobile brand like samsung .

congratulations to them.
Absolutely correct.

Africa is the poorest continent per capita....what did u expect... in the Americas, Europe and Asia, iPhone tops ...those are rich continents

Tekno is not even among the top 10 phone brands in the world... 1 Samsung, 2 Huawei, 3, Apple, 4 Xiaomi, 5 oppo
If Samsung would top number 2 in Africa then the bolded text isn't enough justification. Samsung phones are expensive yet they still have buyers in Nigeria

Not much sha, but y the comparison by mentioning Samsung n others, that's exactly their message, not the feat, they trying to get the elites too, that's y they have started producing expensive phones l, they now have phones worth over 100k.

Although we can say same for Samsung producing mid rangers/entry level phones - but these are done by subsidiaries not Samsung themselves
We both Know Samsung is a bigger brand, so if they can beat a Competitor like Samsung to gain that status, I think it pretty much explains the PR.

As regards subsidiaries, everyone is doing what they can to remain afloat and capture more customers in various socio-economic class.

Everybody go gas chop breakfast Las Las.

TECNO Mobile has regained it top spot as Africa's Top Smartphone Brand of the year 2020 after displacing Samsung Mobile, riding on a successful launch of models in the affordable segment and continued market spending, according to Counterpoint Research’s Market Monitor service.

The Transsion brand achieved this feat against the backdrop of a 6.7% YoY fall in Africa’s smartphone shipments in 2020. Much of the damage was done in the first half of the year due to retail and supply chain disruptions caused by COVID-19, which were partially offset by a swift recovery in the second half due to pent-up demand.

Speaking on the market dynamics, Senior Analyst Yang Wang said, “Looking at the entire year, the African smartphone market outperformed other regions but was not immune to disruptions caused by the pandemic. Q2 2020 was especially difficult as demand was hammered when most countries entered lockdowns. Smartphone shipments during the quarter saw a YoY drop of 27%.”

Wang added, “Restrictions started easing in July. Demand followed suit, riding on a surge in promotional activities, even as COVID-19 cases ticked upwards heading into the Christmas shopping season. Q4 2020 actually eked out a 1.5% gain in YoY terms, the best quarter on record.”

Speaking about smartphone prices in the African market, Wang said, “The ASP decreased 15% between 2018 and 2020, and today over 80% of Africa’s smartphone shipments come from the below- $200 band. We can expect further replacement of feature phones by entry-level smartphones, leading to the ASP likely remaining under pressure in the next few years.”

2020 also saw sales of the first 5G capable smartphones in Africa. 5G is unlikely to be a main factor in the African market in the next few years though, as the deployment of 5G commercial networks is still in its infancy in the continent. Still, there is room for 5G smartphones in Africa, especially if prices can drop below $200, as Counterpoint expects to happen in the near future.

Tecno is a crappy phone. Of course, Africans go for cheap crappy phones you won't see in developed countries due to poor quality!

Samsung is a beast! It's in the same high-end level with Iphone. Of course, Africans buy less Iphone too because of it's price due to its high quality!

I only buy Samsung. cheesy smiley

Poverty is not bro. There is no established fact as it mere speculations which can be refuted. Any who blame it on poverty should be able to provide empirical evidence for back up
