The budget segment of mobile phones here in Kenya is saturated with quite a number of devices that are both promising great features as well as an almost rock-bottom price tag. While the likes of itel are still struggling to grasp the lucrative market in East Africa’s biggest economy, efforts towards enticing more consumers cannot go unnoticed, at least for the devices that are currently on the Kenyan Market. We recently reviewed a Tecno Camon 20 device that’s coming to ride on the brand’s popularity in the country, however other players such as itel might not be so lucky unless they go an extra mile; hence the latest initiative to increase warranty periods.

Itel isn’t that pronounced here in the country, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t globally, the manufacture has announced a significant enhancement to its after-sales policy by extending its warranty coverage for feature phones across Sub-Saharan African (SSA) markets. Instead of sticking to the usual 12 months period, the warranty has been doubled to an impressive 24 months.
