Also here’s a testimonial by a user on nairaland –

Background:

I have been engaging in amateur orders from China since late 2014. Hitherto, I’ve been using freight forwarders/delivery agents operating here on Nairaland to facilitate the shipment of my consignments after payment for orders from alibaba. 

Typical iteration of my mini imports were as follows:

1. Source for and pay for orders.

2. Pay for courier delivery to my freight forwarders’ location within China.

3. Forwarder ships my orders to Nigeria (Usually takes 2-3 weeks). I normally use normal shipping which is cheaper/slower than express shipping.

4. Upon arrival of my package to Lagos, I also pay a logistics company between N700 – N1,500 to pick the parcel from freight forwarders’ Lagos office and deliver to transport company or Post Office – for onward delivery to Akwa Ibom State.

5. Transport company or Post Office then delivers to Akwa Ibom State.


This lethargic scenario persuaded me to subscribe to the idea of buying from Chinese online stores with inbuilt delivery to buyers address. My first such online store shopping experience was with www.gearbest.com


My gearbest.com Experience


1. Payment & Shipping:

*It is very easy to pay instantly with PayPal. 

*Processing takes between 1 day to 1 week in all my experience. I only once complained about processing delay via tweeter but the response was swift.

*Registered parcel takes about 18 days to arrive my destination in Akwa Ibom, Nigeria and about 3 days on the average for ordinary postage. All my orders always arrive 100% safe.

*The packaging is neat and conceals the content satisfactorily. Gearbest is security conscious. The package does not give clue that it is a merchandise. They resembles ordinary letter as much as possible. 

* At checkout, there are options for paying for tracking no ( which comes as Registered Parcel in Nigeria) and for shipping insurance. I am to suggest that if the amount of the order will be painful to loose, it makes a lot of sense to pay about $1.99 or thereabouts for each of the aforementioned options to guarantee replacement in event of loss/damage of items in transit, or any thing that may motivate claim for restitution from the supplier. It must be acknowledged that international trade has it peculiar risks! 


List of my orders from gearbest:

Of all my orders, I observed that my colleagues at work tends to like the LED bulbs, especially ladies. I have accordingly been requested to make repeat orders both single and bulk for their personal use and resell.



2.Customer Relationship:

* I opened a ticked about delayed delivery and gearbest’s customer care responded professionally. 

* My other communication means has been through their tweeter account. I have always been attended to promptly and positively. I was once assured that my goods will be replaced if it delayed beyond a certain timeframe in postage. 

* I really regard their Customer Care system as top notch.


3. General Remark:

* Gearbest now is my major online shop in China. Most of my orders in 2016 has been from geatbest because it simplifies international trade to a simple art of just clicking buttons online and waiting for my orders to be delivered. Hitherto, I have been using freight forwarders and go through the complex process of customs clearing and multiple courier agents in order to get my Chinese imports to my doorstep. With gearbest, no more stress. 

* So far I have placed 8 orders on a wide range of items, such as: power banks, car accessory, Led bulbs.

* All my orders came as original goods. I have not received any fake product. 

* User reviews are genuine in my impression and reliable enough to guide an aspiring buyer. Most of my orders are for resell, I have repeated orders for satisfied power banks and cheap but original Led electric bulb customers.

* I earned points on buying and writing user reviews and converts the points to discount when shopping. 

* I have no hesitation in recommending gearbest.com to any buyer. They have lived up to expectation and I am looking forward to a sustained long term business relationship with gearbest.com

Google Stadia – The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? – Reader Opinion

Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 4

A few weeks ago, Google announced the release of Google Stadia a new state of the art gaming platform that would change gaming as we know it apparently.

Google Stadia

This has been met with a lot of skepticism in the gaming community if this is going to actually work but I believe Stadia has what it takes to change the whole console gaming model that we have been used to for years, However, it would take some time to actually give Microsoft and Sony a run for their money.

Google Stadia Controller

Google Stadia actually got me thinking Sony’s Playstation and Microsoft’s Xbox would have a strong problem to contend with when it fully launches this year. Google Stadia’s cross-platform play is something I’m looking forward to, so you can play hardware intensive games on a system or phone with low specs.

Imagine playing PUBG or FIFA on a 1GB RAM Phone or Laptop and it runs without any lagging or glitches. So it’s practically goodbye to having to get a new system to play some games if they are available on Stadia.

I decided to put out this question to you guys on facebook and I was pretty impressed with the replies I got.

Google Stadia Reader Opinion

Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 5

Apeh Ikechukwu said – Even if it will be the beginning of the end for PlayStation 4 and Xbox, it will take time A very long time for it to gain popularity and to be accepted by all.
What if it becomes more expensive? That you have to pay huge to access it?

George Oz said – I don’t think to gain popularity is a problem, the announcement alone gathered enough publicity online. And yes it is definitely the end for others Like x-Box and co…Sometimes let’s learn to think Outside the Box.
#MyOpinion🚶🚶🚶🚶🚶

Osazeme Usen said – Stadia will take quite a long while to catch on. Internet speed is still an issue in most nations of the world. In the long run, stadia will eventually be cheaper than owning a console and purchasing games but that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

Olusola Glory Olamide said – Before we throw those Xboxes, PlayStations, Nintendo Switches and stuffs to the bin of history we have questions to answer.
Will most gamers’ broadband connections be fast enough to make a streaming service of that proposition? Will developers all come on board? And is Google the right company to trust with the future of the games industry? Though we’ve got Apple on board and Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon are also in the launch plus Sony Nintendo and others won’t stay put.

ューセッ州 小岩 マサチ said – I feel we will have to pay for most of the games…and Nigeria’s 4g speed is about 2mb/s.

Samuel Jarvis Adeyemi said -Stadia is a good innovation from Google and I think it’s great since gaming could be done on a device, they said it would be super fast even cheating the speed of light in 4k Res without a glitch.
Anyways Google is the software boss, I think they can do it.

I hope Xbox and PS4 meet up but cloud gaming is not really their stuff. And Google has the resources.

Swiss Alex said – well mainly I would say Google Stadia is a welcome development but Xbox and the ps4 has to upgrade too

Google Stadia Reader Opinion – Join The Conversation

Google Stadia looks like something that would work very well in countries with very fast broadband connections for now. Hopefully, Google would find a way to bridge the gap and fix things before it gets rolled out to Africa and Asia. Nevertheless, it’s a win for gamers with this. So what’s your take on this?

Checkout The Xiaomi Fast Charge Tech That Charges A Phone Full In 17 Minutes 7

At the moment, Oppo’s SuperVOOC is the fastest wired charger with its 50W speeds at 10V/5A, but Xiaomi is coming up something crazier and different that can charge a dead battery to 100% in just 17 minutes.

Here is a video posted by Xiaomi’s brand president Lin Bin, it shows a phone with 4000mAh battery charged fully in just 17 minutes.

Xiaomi has compared this to OPPO’s 50W (10V/5A) Super VOOC Charging that charges 3700mAh battery up to 65% in 17 minutes.

This was introduced as the world’s fastest smartphone charging tech that can charge the phone up to 92% in 30 minutes.

For comparison, Huawei’s upcoming 55W Super Charge fast charging technology for the Mate X’s 4500mAh battery will need just 35min to fully charge the device.

Xiaomi’s new Super Charge Turbo technology is currently in testing stage and will take some time to reach the market… it will be announce few hours from now at an event.
