MyBroadband spoke to the companyâ€™s founder, Blake Levitan, about what you should consider before importing a smartphone into South Africa. He said that some of their most popular imported smartphones include models from Xiaomi, Google, OnePlus, and CAT.
He goes on to explain some of the very valid risks of importing a phone yourself and the hidden costs. On the whole their prices don't actually look that bad (and consider that you'd be actually buying it "locally" then - it arrives quicker and you have a 12-month warranty). They're selling my Pixel 2 XL for 3x less than I imported it for (OK it's older but still a d**n good phone).
