Buying an OPPO Smartphone in Kenya

      Comments Off on Buying an OPPO Smartphone in Kenya

Buying an OPPO smartphone in Kenya has now become easier due to the increase in the variety of phones they provide.Chinese smartphone maker OPPO, has been officially selling its devices in the Kenyan market since 2015.

Oppo is slowly increasing its local market share by positioning itself in mid-range sector. OPPO smartphones have reliable software and premium styling for those who are not able to spend the amount of money associated with flagship phones such as iPhone and Samsung.

The company has been giving more importance to mobile photography and camera. So their camera department is more advanced than their competitors. Therefore, buying an OPPO smartphone in Kenya is the best gift for people who love to click amazing shots and selfies.

OPPO smartphones are known for their premium build, quality camera, long lasting battery life and excellent packaging. OPPO smartphones mostly ape the Apple design so it gives you the feeling of owning an iPhone without actually buying one.

Africans, especially, love to buy the latest OPPO smartphone because of the value you get from OPPO phones at a fraction of the price you would have spent on other dominant smartphone makers.

Here are more advantages of buying an OPPO phone in Kenya:

Upsides to buying an OPPO smartphone in Kenya

  • Nice sense of style: An Oppo phone is thin, light and delicately styled.
  • Fast charging: It’s capable of charging the phone to 70 percent in just a few minutes, making it relatively painless to keep your phone going.
  • Dual SIM capable: If you want to run a work and personal SIM in the same phone, most OPPO phones allow for that.

Downsides to buying an OPPO smartphone in Kenya

  • Derivative design: Buying an OPPO smartphone in Kenya does open you up to the risk of folks assuming you’ve bought an actual iPhone and thinking you’re cheap when they realize that’s not what it is.
  • Dual SIM at the cost of storage: Most Oppo smartphones are dual SIM which gives it some appeal, but it uses the SIM card tray as its microSD storage slot as well, which means you can either have microSD expansion or two SIM cards, but not both.
  • Middling battery life: The charger may be able to charge quickly, but its overall battery life is nothing particularly exciting.
