Avoiding Avechi and Android Kenya Article


#21

Well, then seemingly the offer at Avechi is better, since its 36.5K for the 64GB/6GB one and 37.5K for the 128GB/6GB variant. And its supposed to arrive tomorrow, 12 Sept 2018. I was also surprised by the apparent 1K difference between the two, since internationally, the difference is about 3-4K. Although it seems Avechi made a 5-7K margin on the international price, so it didn’t bother me so much, though 1K difference looks suspiciously low. What is your view?

Thanks for that clarification. I’ve been checking out the unboxing videos, just to be sure when I pay them a visit at their shop of how the setup should be. Do they have phones on display, or is it just like Jumia where you just have like a pick up centre?

That’s the cost you pay for the non-existent after-sales service.

Unfortunately, not. They do not have displays phones. You’ll have to pay first before they break the seal

DONT buy from Avechi. I can assure you they will mess you up. Xiaomi Kenya informed me they will have the device before year end and the price will be 30 to 32K.
