  • 4 little-known smartphone brands now available in South Africa

    Mobile enthusiast? Then you'll know about the likes of Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Xiaomi, LG and other prominent smartphone brands. But there are a few more brands out there that are actually available in South Africa.

It's one thing to have cheap dual-camera smartphones, but another to have them in the country. Fortunately, there are actually a few devices that fit the bill... Ulefone S8 Pro Ulefone is a little-known Chinese brand, specialising in entry-level and mid-range smartphones. In other words, don't expect blazing-fast phones from this company. Nevertheless, you can buy the Ulefone S8 Pro from the Smartphone Shop on Takealot, coming in at a rather well-priced R2499. For your cash, you're getting a 13MP+5MP combo on the back (enabling depth-of-field tricks), a 5MP...
