My Afrione Gravity z1 Android Phone Experience, The First Nigerian Made Smartphone
Going to the computer Village to get myself an android phone. I walk everywhere and in every shop hoping to get an affordable, I discover that most of the phones I fell in love where quite expensive. I searched wiki mobile phone but I couldn't get one. When I was almost getting tired, I bumped into a particular shop and the first particular that displayed some android phones caught my eyes and it was the size and the strange name, Afrione GravityZ1.
I picked it up and gently perused through the phone, at first the feel was great and amazing. Then ran through it with my finger moving through every specs on the phone, I then realised that I loved the phone but the name made me skeptical because it was uncommon and unknown company.
What baffled me was the lady that quickly approached and told me it was Nigerian made. I became and dropped the phone. She then said they are from India but the phone was made in Nigeria. And I loved the phone the more.
I quickly bought the phone after much information from the lady. I got it for N25,000.
