Are you looking for where to buy phones in Nigeria ? I am not thinking you don’t know where to buy phones, but I want to recommend genuine phones dealers where you can buy only original phones that will last for you.
Everyone needs a phone in Nigeria. If we ask each person in Nigeria why they have or need a phone you will hear different reasons.
But the major reasons we need phones are;
- A means of communication.
- It is easier to pass/receive information with a phone
- We need phones (mobile phones) for easier access to the internet
- Some people use phones for social networking (twitter, facebook,bbm), etc.
There are many reasons why phones are needed and these are just few of those reasons. But how can we make good use of our phones if they have one fault or the other. How can we enjoy using our phones if they are fake?
This post is just a guide to people who have been victims of purchasing faulty phones or “china phones” as we call it here. This post gives you and me where to get genuine phones from in Nigeria.
One of the major advantage of buying phones from these places is the warranty given on each phone gotten from them. Let’s get this started shall we….
Slot is one of the popular places to get phones in Nigeria. I can boldly say this because I have gotten a phone from them before.
They are known to be the best when it comes to selling latest phones and gadgets in Nigeria. Their phones are also cheaper compared to other phone dealers.
They have phones ranging from Samsung, Nokia, Apple phones, Huawei, etc. They have branches in Port Harcourt, Lagos State, Abuja, Abeokuta, Ibadan, Uyo, Akure, Calabar, Ilorin, Ogun State, Aba, Owerri, Benin, Enugu, Warri, Asaba, Kano, Ife, Osun State.
Look for one close to you and get a phone with a sure warranty (as long as you have your receipt). Another great thing is that you can place an order for any phone listed on their online store, www.slot.ng and have it delivered at your doorstep.
Callus Miller is another great store that sells phones and other gadgets. They have their head office at Port Harcourt.
Callus miller is fully registered with the Nigerian Communication Commission (NUC). Callus miller communications limited is a mobile phone company that sells and distributes mobile phones and other gadgets in Nigeria and within West Africa.
Another great thing about callus miller is that you can your mobile phones online from www.callusmiller.com with free delivery for orders over ₦99,999 and free returns.
Located at the heart of Lagos, Ikeja. Computer village as the name goes is a computer and computer gadgets market.
In this market, you can find a wide range of different brands of computers, computer accessories and mobile phones. In this market too, you can find technicians, both the ones that will make your phone better and the ones that will “destroy” the life left in your phones and computers.
You can exchange your old phones for a new phone of the same brand in computer village too. Just add a little more money and you get a new phone. It is also done with laptops.
We are no strangers to this. Most of us prefer purchasing our phones at shopping malls for reasons best known to us. Shopping malls are great places to get phones from because you will see different brand representatives waiting to attend to you. Malls like Ikeja city mall, SPAR, Palms shopping mall, etc.
Many of us get our phones from online stores in Nigeria because of convenience. While for some people, heaven has to come down before they make such move. Online stores like Jumia, Konga, Kaymu,OLX,Jiji,etc. sells different brand of phones on their site and you will have them delivered anywhere within Nigeria.
You can get mobile phones from as low as ₦5000 from these online stores. Although it is better to see what you are paying for first before purchasing it.
I am all for visiting the stores I mentioned above and getting a good look of whatever phones I want to get. As the saying goes; one man’s meat is another man’s poison.
Before purchasing a mobile phone in any of the stores mentioned in this post, you should weigh the pros and cons. For instance, ask yourself questions like;
- Do I get any warranty if I purchase the phone from there?
- Is there any return policy if I end up not loving the phone?
- How useful is the phone I want to purchase?
- What if the phone I purchase online turns out to be fake and worthless?
These are the questions you should ask yourselves before you choose to purchase a phone in any of the listed stores.
Don’t let your money go to waste. Imagine getting a cool Samsung phone with nice phone case, only to put it on and see the Nokia handshake.
It’s also going to be worse if the store you purchased the phone from has no return policy…. My brothers and sisters you will be stuck with that phone.
Although the price of a phone is one of the major determinants why we purchase any brand of phone but it shouldn’t be the only thing we look out for. You can’t get an iphone6 for ₦40,000 anywhere so don’t be deceived when you are directed to a store that sells for that amount.
In summary, mobile phones has slowly become a part of our day to day lives. We use our mobile phones every day.
Since that much workload is put on phones, it is very important we purchase good phones with a long battery life, good internal memory and any other thing you can look out for.
The points listed above shows where in Nigeria you can get original phones with different brand names.
Stores with a minimum of a 1 year warranty, and also stores where you are sure your money isn’t going to be wasted. I hope you found this post really informative because that is what I want it to be.
