Avoiding Avechi and Android Kenya Article


#1

From that article, it’s very obvious that you should not buy anything from Avechi Kenya. However, from all forums I am in the Mi A1 is very clearly a badly built phone and it’s the sole reason I did not buy one. Avechi also does not check network bands so you will most likely end up with a phone that does not support 4G in Kenya. The thing I hate most is their website lists products they do not have so you end up having false hopes after viewing their site. In the meanwhile lemme stick to Jumia Express and their exorbitant 650 shipping fee. They atleast have a good warranty as I have seen them return cash or replace products severally.

There is a thread here about Avechi and this post could have fit in that post well.

Nonetheless, the punchline on that article

"The lowdown: get it if you can, just not from Avechi Kenya (they’ll leave you crying)"

You are making some of us who have done Business with Avechi fearful of the longevity of our Devices…

I purchased 1 from them long ago 2014(I cant forget), its well and running but they claimed it had a 3GB RAM 32ROM & 13+16MP camera only to find it was 1GB RAM 8GB ROM & 8+5MP. Sitawai wasamehe… returned it but nilipata wauzaji ni madanda they have no idea what I was asking ikabidi niende zangu.
NOTE: It was a delivery phone I didnt check much coz a friend had purchased similar device that had matched the features as on the web

sometimes I feel like they pretend they dont know about tech. They had advertised Galaxy J7 Pro 32gb 3gb at 28k. went there to buy it for a friend and only got the 16gb 3gb ram still at 28k
