My Personal Experience Shopping With Gearbest

Published

on

A couple of weeks ago, a product was ordered on my behalf from Gearbest and I’d say it was a somewhat nice experience shopping with them. However, since the product was sent via free shipping (Registered Air Mail) , it took about 2-3 weeks to get to Nigeria. Normally paid shipping usually ships within a week.

Once the product was purchased, I received a tracking number 2 days later from Gearbest and also a link that shows me the status of the package.

It actually took a while to get here. When the parcel finally got to Nigeria, there was a notification like this –
Parcel Arrived At Exchange Office.

After some days, I saw another notification – Recipients refused to accept shipment.

I was surprised when I saw the notification. I decided to do a little research and got to know that I could also track the package on the NIPOST website.

I tracked the package from the Nipost website and found out that it has been shipped from Lagos to Port Harcourt.

I went to the nearest Post Office close to my location and picked it up. However before picking up the package I had to pay N500 and also come along with my ID card.

The package was intact and nothing was broken. The perfect product. So if you’re thinking of ordering products from Gearbest , you don’t have to worry. You have my word, your order will get here complete and in good shape.

Nigerian cards are also supported on Gearbest – Verve, Visa and MasterCard.

    Tracking From Nipost Usually Begins When The Shipping company indicates that the package has arrived Nigeria. They usually send it to the nearest post office close to your location based on the Zip Code you entered. They won’t bring it directly to your doorstep unless you used a different shipping method .

After almost two decades of service, Apple is reportedly dumping iTunes.

It first started off as rumors, but now it is going to be made official at WWDC in just a few hours.

Before this, you might have noticed that the Instagram and Facebook page of iTunes has had a slight change.

Posts on both pages has been entirely deleted – Apple’s move at shifting away from iTunes links, I guess.

Before this, there has been separate apps for music on its mobile devices, however, not available for Mac OS.

Relating to that, there is supposedly going to be an announcement for three separate apps for its music, TV and podcasts, and hopefully they’ll also be available for Mac Books.

We’ll just keep our fingers crossed for this and other big announcements at WWDC.

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

Google Stadia - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 7

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 - The Future Of Gaming Or Not ? - Reader Opinion 8

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.

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?
