Recently I went to Mobile Mela 2016 which is going on at Lalitpur Mall till Jan 30. The Ex prince of Nepal, Paras Shah was the chief guest for this event. The organizer of Mobile Mela 2016 is promoting this event by saying people can get up to 40% discount on mobiles and up to 55% discount on mobile accessories. Which is kind of true but there is a catch.
You can get a 40% flat discount only on old Huawei smartphones. Like: Huawei Ascend G700, Huawei Ascend G610, Huawei Ascend G630, Huawei Ascend G6, Huawei Y625, and Huawei Ascend G620. Which, I suggest you not buy any one of these. But on new Huawei smartphones, you can get a discount of only up to 7%.
Microsoft Lumia 532 and Lumia 435 have a flat 30% discount too. But Again I will not suggest you buy any one of these. Remaining Samsung, Gionee, Micromax, Lava, etc you can get a discount of up to only 7-8%.
The only new devices I got to see were from Elephone. It’s a Hongkong based brand and Deals and Discount Nepal Pvt Ltd is the authorized distributor. So let’s have a look at these devices.
5.5inch IPS LCD made by LG, 1920×1080 pixels resolutions
Mediatek MT6753 64bit 1.3Ghz octa-core processor and Mali-T720MP2 GPU
3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage
13MP Sony IMX214 CMOS image sensor with f2.0 aperture, autofocus and dual-tone LED flashlight
Mobile Mela 2016 for me was kind of disappointed. There was nothing really special at the event that excited me. If you already visited the event let me know your thoughts. Also if you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to write in the comment section below.
