Tech Bloggers Round Table 2015 by Jumia: A brand vs blogger meet-up
The 2015 Tech Nigerian Bloggers RoundTable winded down with top brands and bloggers in attendance and BestMobs, represented by our very own Elvis Okoye, was there to bring you all the inside scoop from the event.
Held and organized by Jumia Nigeria, the Round Table took place at the e-commerce giant’s headquarters in Ikeja, Nigeria. We saw and met other big names in the Nigerian tech blogging industry such as Jide (Ogbongeblog), Oscar (Oscarmini) and Steven (Stevenbergy) to mention a few. Top smartphone brands like Lenovo, Infinix and LG also had their representatives at the event and BestMobs was more than delighted to ask these guys a few questions and answer those thrown at us.
Among the questions we got asked at the event, one we were particularly happy to hear was “What are the specs for an ideal smartphone,” asked by Jumia’s Yemi Kuti.
We told Yemi (who is the PR and Offline Marketing Rep at Jumia) and the entire audience what we’ve heard from our fans here at BestMobs (yes, we do listen to you fans):
Our Nigerian fans say that they’ll love a phone with
- a 5-inch 1080 x 1920 pixels display
- 2GB of RAM
- Good Snapdragon or at least octa-core MediaTek CPU
- 2GB of RAM
- 16GB of expandable storage
- 3,000mAh of battery juice (may or may not be removable)
- Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system
- and finally, a price not far from 20,000 naira ($100)
After the event, there were pleasantries and
exchange of contacts between the guests chitchats. Our guy (Elvis) managed to download some of the presentations displayed at the event. In summary — the 2015 Tech Bloggers Round Table was a huge success!
