chinandroid1Do you know “MADE IN CHINA TOPS EU LIST OF UNSAFE PRODUCTS” The growing number of dangerous products for sale  comes from China. Do not be deceived based on how cheap and affordable that device might be, It’s not just be the best for you.

We all have seen the advent of china phones coming in bulks to our Nigerian market. Well, cheap is always welcomed here as the economy makes people to adapt to get the last kobo value for any product purchased. However, unless you are buying for a short-term period(3-6 months), then you might need to review your policy on chinadroids

Below Are Facts Exposing China Phones:


Unfortunately, we are not privy to be close to china as neighbours, most times when a phone’s priced less than $80-100 then you got to ask, what’s the catch? most likely, the parts would be of the level you paid for, not only that, getting their replacements can be a huge pain that you can avoid by going for more recognized brands.


Just as the above, they don’t just last especially for hardcore users.. a friend’s Infinix Zero is close to Zero now (Burial arrangements made) and all these claims to have a gorilla glass and all..Wait a minute, Gorilla glass on a $100 phone? erm…i really don’t think so. With the scarcity of specific parts to help you like i said earlier, when a fault develops you most likely think the selling path.


The Big one of three.. From my findings about reselling these gadgets either to users or people at computer village, alaba or any tech resell joint China phones and tablets come last. I reiterate: A Big LAST. We get cases whereby a phone for about N15,000 would be getting lowball offers of N7,000 at best.That’s for the best and cleanest ones compared to other goods that would be getting N10,000 and around, every second with your phone costs more than the amount you would have supposedly saved.

ADVISE: Don’t go with that idea that the phone you’re getting is a bargain, wait a bit and get reactions from other users, then perhaps measure it with what you want. From personal experience, it’s a lot more painful the stress and headaches than the extra MONEY cough out for your gadget at the end of the day.

    • The main issue here is, we Nigerians love cheap things, And the greedy phone dealers prefer importing fake china cloned phones to the country.Sorry to say, the FG wouldn’t do anything about it. The country is so highly corrupted.

  1. This is just hateful propaganda from the US and EU. The west is getting jittery over China’s growing economic and political dominance in the world. They’re doing everything in their power to checkmate it. There’s nothing wrong with China phones. At least not the one being bought and used by China’s own citizens. Nigerians love cheap products, thus China manufacturers make phones specifically for Nigeria that are low grade. Go to China to see the kind of phones it makes for it’s own people and you’ll see they make good quality phones on par with IPhone and Samsung.

    • You got a good point sir, Do you know most phone dealers in Nigeria go to china to clone android phones and come and sell as real device here for the real price not even cheap and affordable. Its just sad!!! Hope this stops. Thanks for your comment okeke.
