Africa has over 520 million devices and that number is growing very quickly. However, device manufacturers don’t provide enough support in Africa, so when devices break, it’s really hard to get the right help from the brand or retailers and it’s also unnecessarily expensive to fix or replace.
- Device protection products/ services were almost non-existent in Africa. In the US, Europe, and South-East Asia, products/ services like Applecare+ and Samsung Care+ are widely available, leading to African customers sometimes doing away with their devices or shipping them abroad for support.
- Consumers (businesses and individuals) have to visit local repair shops which are inconvenient and lack transparent, authentic, and time-bound service delivery.
- Fixing or replacing broken devices is unnecessarily expensive and it’s such that Africans spend between 30-100% of the device value on it.
