Get To Know Your Smartphone 4

Lesson 4 = Durability

Durability is a very serious deciding factor as to whether a brand is to be bought or not. Unfortunately, due to greed of our own sellers Chinese branded phones have always been tagged poor, cheap and fake. The irony in this is that the world's largest phone company makes phones that are generally known to be problematic. I have heard numerous complaints from user of 4 month old Galaxy phones bought at over N90,000. Nobody will consciously shell out large sums on a product with reliability problem. The most durable phones on earth are the iphones, however that doesn't mean its hopeless for the average man who needs a N20k or N30k product with strong reliability / durability records.

China's Largest Phone Makers
1: Huawei
2: ZTE
3: Lenovo
4: Coolpad

Most Reliable Chinese brands in no particular order
*Lenovo (new owners of Motorola)
*TCL (Alcatel)

If am to give my personal opinion, a Xiaomi, Oppo or Meizu can rival any IPhone because these brands have legendary quality and durability.

So, the next time you ask somebody "what phone is that?'' And he says, "Gionee Elife E7" and you then say "hmmm, china" make sure you are using at least a Nexus 5 or Xperia Z1 else, you may have to eat your words. Bold 5, Lumia 720 and the likes don't stand a chance in hell.
