So, where to start? Hmm…how many of you own Tecno or Infinix devices? I am an aggrieved user of two Tecno devices currently, The Phantom 9 and the Spark 3 Pro. It pains me that I went through the process of saving up momey in order to buy the Phantom 9, a device with 128 gigs of storage which at the time had an asking price that simply left me speechless.
Problem is, these companies do not send OTA updates, a business move that is a real menace. In order to enjoy newer Android versions with newer features, you simply have to buy a new phone that comes with a newer system out-of-the-box. I also purchased the Spark 3 Pro, because I was astounded last year in March when it made it to the shortlist of devices that were on Android 10’s beta list.
It’s been almost a year now, and that device has never received the OTA for Android 10. They are still ‘beta-testing’ the software as they claim (since late November last year), with 2000 users worldwide; a complete joke given that the device’s sales in Kenya alone almost quadruple that number. The move to list that phone last year now seems to have been nothing but a ‘hey me too!’ moment; a publicity stunt. I am tired.
If you have half a mind to grab a new phone, forget about any of Transsion Holdings products I tell you. Just trash. Share your thoughts.
