Reasons why some people don’t buy Tecno phones

You can only be living in space if you have not heard of Tecno smartphones.  It is a phone that has taken over Kenya and some part of Africa like a plague. If Kenyan Tecno phones happened to be one of the devices that cause mass death, Africa could be on the brink of extinction.  We are lucky that it is not; otherwise it could be a whole different story.  You will find someone using a phone in a matatu, in class, and on the streets.  For some time it was somehow annoying, but we got over it.

Not everyone has been carried away with this craze in Kenya. With a large population almost swearing allegiance to it, there is a group that has sworn not to have a Tecno phone now and in the future. They’d rather walk with a feature phone than be caught with a Tecno phone.  I sought to find out why some people are not willing to flow with this wave considering that it comes with the best deal in terms of the price. What I found out was kind of interesting.


Apparently, some people think that most Tecno phones come with a similar design.  Someone said that there is no point in buying a phone that has a similar design as the previous design. Looking at this closely, you notice that there is some aspect of truth. A look at the Tecno series phones might give you a clue of what we are talking about. You find that most phones have an almost similar design until you are not able to differentiate between all the models. This does not work well with people who feel like they want something unique and people who want to stand out from the crowd. Let’s just say that a smartphone will most of the time determine the personality of a person.

[huge_it_slider id=”2″]

Tecno is just one of those phones that will not always allow you to stand out or even bring out the unique aspect in you. That is why there are people who’d rather be caught dead than walking with a Tecno phone.  There is some aspect of truth in all that, come to think of it, from a distance anyone can tell the kind of Tecno that you are using. People have a funny way of thinking where they tend to even give your phone the price range. If I see someone with a Tecno J7 Boom, I will tell that it costs Ksh 10, 000, it is probably one year old and I can sometimes tell the kind of issues with that kind of phone.

Why buy a phone that everyone has something that they can talk about, unlike other phones, Tecno has all its specs and details known to most people. A phone such as an iPhone or even most of the Samsung phones leaves people wondering what they are made of. If you are looking for a phone that has some sense of intrigue and an atmosphere of suspense, Tecno is not the phone for you.


The other reason as to why other people don’t want to associate with a Tecno phone is due to the name. It’s rather interesting but the name Tecno is enough to put off some people. Tecno has a rather interesting story in Kenya; remember the time when all China phones had to be de activated? Well, most people developed an attitude towards Tecno phones and other models from China. It has not been so easy convincing people that Tecno is way better than what other models from the east were giving us some time back.


I have to admit that people who bought Tecno smartphones immediately they made a landing in Kenya experienced tough times. It was almost difficult convincing people that your Tecno phone was just like any other Android phone or even better. With time people came to accept this phone making it one of the best and most sold brand in Kenya. That has not been enough to convince some people that Tecno is a phone that they can consider getting, their response is that a Tecno phone is a Tecno phone, and they would not want to be found with it at any day.


High-end phones can be easily upgraded, to a better Android version. This is not the case with most Tecno phones. You get a Tecno phone that runs on the 4.2 Android OS, and you will be stuck with it in like forever till you do an upgrade. I tend to think that this is a strategy that Tecno has to keep people buying their phones. We know that this is one of the brands that release new models every time, with each new model there is probably an upgrade with them. To keep up with that pace, you have to keep buying, and this is what has kept Tecno in business for the few years that it has been in Kenya. This fact does not always resonate well with people who appreciate devices that can be upgraded when it comes to the OS. These people prefer having an expensive phone that they can probably use for two years than having an affordable phone that can be used for around six months before it is faced out by a better device.



I didn’t want to say this, but I bet I will have to, as we are talking about issues that make some people buy a Tecno phone. Tecno loyalists will agree with me that most Tecno phones keep on hanging; this is a constant problem that has been there for some time. High-end Tecno phones are probably the only models that will not give you this headache. If you have ever come across Tecno P5 or even tried using it, you will agree that that is one of the worst smartphones that you can ever use. It makes you wonder what was going through the minds of the people who created Tecno phones.

This phone will hang on every other task that you put it up to including reading your text messages. This problem cuts across the board with most Tecno phones in Kenya. Ask anyone using a Tecno phone and you realize that they keep on complaining, but there is nothing that they can do about it. For that reason, most people who appreciate efficiency will not be found using this phone. That is why they prefer saving for a very long time to invest in a phone that will give them quality promising efficiency.

Some people will fail to buy Tecno phones due to the low price that they come with, this is common for people who believe that cheap is expensive, and they are probably afraid that this phone will cost them in the long run. This group of people don’t have a problem with the quality of the phone, but they are afraid that the phone is too cheap for them to buy. You don’t expect such people to spend their money on such a phone. Not at any day, not unless they are buying it for home usage but not for their personal use.



We all agree that Tecno is one of the growing companies that have achieved great success in the Kenyan market. Statistics show that this is one of the phones that are used by a large majority of the people in the country. As a matter of fact, five in nine people use a Tecno phone; this is an indication that without a shadow of a doubt it is a popular model in the country. Just because a certain thing is popular does not necessarily mean that it is good, and it still does not mean that every other person in the country is ready to be responsive towards it.

There are people who don’t like Tecno phones, and they would do anything in their power not to have one. They actually say that even if the phones were to be given for free, they still would not want to own one. Tecno has a good side; it is the phones that made it possible for lots of people in African and in Kenya for that matter enjoy what an Android phone has to offer. It still has some major flaws to work on, and maybe things will change in future. To begin with, Tecno should work on their phones and give people phones that don’t hang. Most of us would really appreciate if that became a reality. They might not ask, but there are times that we feel like want to write a letter to Tecno giving them the dos and dont’s with smartphones. Since some things are next to impossible, Tecno haters will remain hating the brand while Tecno lovers will continue being loyal to this brand.
