MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict
Zzapo Mobile smartphone has a number of decent specs, not to mention a unique design (that huge selfie camera lens!). We are also looking forward to knowing the capabilities of the 720-degree panoramic camera. Other features of the phone include an in-built screen recorder and in-built antivirus (which we are still not convicned that anyone needs on a modern smartphone.
It will be interesting to find out what the catch is for such a smartphone to be offered for the price of ₦8,000 (or ₦10,000 for the 6GB variant) in the first five days of availability. The manufacturer calls Zzapo phone the most affordable smartphone. But what will the regular price be after the promo period? We will have to wait and see.
But if you can, grab one during the promo period. We do not know what specific Snapdragon processor is on the inside, but let’s assume that it is the lowest possible. A Snapdragon smartphone with 4GB of RAM, 64GB storage, 3200mAh battery, and fast battery charging at that price is a steal.
People have called and written to ask if this is a legitimate deal. Mister Mobility answers that question in his article, Is Zzapo Mobile a scam?
