Everyone wants to have a smartphone with blatant internet connectivity and speed. So when buying a phone, you must note which LTE bands are supported by your required smartphone.

After-sales support means that in the event of any problems arising in the phone, the company must be able to help its customers. Therefore check that the parts and expertise of the Chinese phone is available in any part of the world. After-sales service of Oppo phones is available in many parts of Asia, including Bangladesh.
Select a vendor
Many smartphone manufacturers sell their phones through online portals. Meizu and Xiaomi phones are available online at BAGDOOM.com at attractive rates. Do a thorough research on the vendors and read the reviews before placing your order. Also look if they have a delivery option.
Due to cyber security, many Chinese smartphones do not have Google apps installed in them. They instead offer ROM software within the Android platform. So check if the international ROM is available within your required phone and avoid any malware or unnecessary applications.
When a phone is being shipped from China, the customers must be aware of the customs policy. It may often takes weeks for the phone to be delivered and the cost may rise due to customs duty.
When you have carefully looked at all the features, the final thing to make the phone usable is to change its language to English. Then install the Google Play store and download a number of apps on your phone.
