Chances are that you don’t own either a Sony Xperia or an LG smartphone. How do we know? Because your favorite gadget junkies themselves here at Dignited don’t own them!
Sony has really struggled with its smartphone division while LG even though has registered success in the US and Asian markets is more known to be a consumer brand for home appliances than smartphones. However, both Sony with it’s Xperia brand and LG have really solid devices to offer.
Now only afew mobile networks specifically MTN and Airtel Uganda are carrying these devices while online retailer Jumia Uganda has only a few Sony Xperia devices. So if you’re looking at buying an LG or Sony Xperia smartphone from Uganda, then you’re options are only a handful.
MTN Uganda Smartphones

Airtel Uganda Smartphones
