I had promised I’d never write about a Hotwav device no matter how good it claimed to be. That was after a friend got one and was totally angry with all the lies about the device. I’m sure some of you have ever thought of buying one of their phones.
But I’ve thought it better to make this post so that it cautions everyone who may be lured to buy these fake devices.
Whether or not Hotwav is a real company I cannot tell. But their reach and “popularity” has been fueled tremendously by online sellers like Kilimall. I have a big concern and problem with the lies that are perpetuated on online e-commerce sites. Especially the reviews and comments section.
Yes they run Android. No, the stated version of Android is never necessarily the version of Android you’ll find the device running.
Yes they have RAM and Storage, but never ever the stated size or amount. A device may be listed as 16GB storage and you’ll find it with either 4GB or 8GB only.
The cameras are all fake. I mean check this Cosmos V13 Review that was submitted to Techish some months ago.
The amazing battery ratings are all a lie. Some devices, like my friend’s can have agreeable battery life while some suffer less than 2hr screen on time.
There’s even a Hotwav device called the Pixel with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage that costs just Ksh. 12,000. Want to bet it has less than 16GB storage?
You can however ignore all the people who’ve complained about the Hotwav phones and get yourself one. Some people are really ripping off people.
