    The Official Xiaomi Thread

    I don't live in South Africa, I'm from Kenya, East Africa. Second, I can understand them sending bulk orders in separate batches, but when it is 2-4 months apart, that is odd. And with one of my orders, they sent a year later than the rest of the order

    I have been buying from Gearbest for about 5 years now. They have become VERY slow lately. Two year ago I placed an order for a bunch of stuff - it arrived after 2 months.

    MTN Black Friday Discussions

    I LOVED my MTN contract that I took out in January 2017. I got over 50 GB of data every month for around R 200 per month. I have been working in Kenya the last year. I arrived back in SA today, and I see they have dropped me to a 4 GB per month package while I was out the country - this...

    I am frustrated - last year February I moved to Kenya as I was offered a contract here. I went back to S.A in October for a work conference, and while there cancelled my R 700.00 a month data LTE contract, it had expired its two year period in August. Great (I thought), I had the cancellation...

    Galaxy Note9

    Wow, then it is going for a steal here in Kenya !!! It seems odd - S.A being more first world (supposedly), bigger market etc and yet it is so much more expensive there. Petrol here is also a bit cheaper than ZA, we pay around R 14.00 per litre. My cellphone plan costs R 300, and for that I...
