  1. Thank you guys for existing and doing a review of this particular phone. If any African user only had mainstream website as only source of information, we would have been fooled believing the asian version is universal and be deceived.

    • It is not clear why some companies embark on such schemes. Just hoping that Nigeria and other African countries will have a functional body to regulate some of these unacceptable schemes in the future. Infinix have been playing these deals since the launch of Hot 6-series.

  2. This is a kind of disdain for us as customers. They don’t care for the African continent at all. Meanwhile they are creating specifics phones series for countries like India exclusively. It is time we, as African create our own brands, made by us from scratch. It would not be that difficult since most of the raw material comes from our underground. We must build entrepreneur mindset and invest in manufacturing of goods and services. Maybe you should write an article on this theme and list all the brands and models that are concerned.
