Say "Hello" To A New Phone From These Rosebank Mall Stores

TIPS AND TRICKS  |  JAN 31, 2023


Is it time to shop for a new phone, or do you maybe need an upgrade on some of your mobile devices? These Rosebank Mall stores have your back and a range of options for you to choose from. Let’s take a look. 

Cell C 

Cell C is a leading mobile provider in South Africa offering a wide range of products and services, including voice, data, device and sim deals to more than 20 million customers. If you are looking for renowned cellphone brands such as Apple, Oppo, Samsung, Huawei, and more, visit Rosebank Mall’s Cell C today for a cash or contract purchase. 


MTN has been known to not only offer services and products independently, but they sometimes involve third-party companies and offer affordable contracts to people of different income statuses. Visit the Rosebank Mall branch and take a look at the latest promotions, or simply look for the MTN Y’ello Trader leaflet on their website to view specials and current promotions. 

Telkom Direct and Vodacom

Rosebank Mall is also home to Telkom Direct as well as Vodacom. Both offer contract and cash purchases, with a range of mobile devices, laptops, and even wireless internet services. The two have been capturing the hearts of South Africans, much like Cell C and MTN, and many people often have arguments about which network provider is the best. Our tip? Find YOUR fit, and soar. 


If you want to shop for a phone cover, charger, cable, or any kind of accessories, visit Rosebank Mall’s CellCafe. Not only will you find accessories, but repairs as well as devices are available there too. If your devices are still in good shape and suffered one or three drops, consider visiting CellCafe and getting them fixed instead of making new purchases. 

What To Look For In A New Device 

When you are getting a new mobile device, you want to factor in the following so that you get the best value for money: 

  • Battery: Are you the type of user that frequently has many apps open at once? Do you envision yourself using video streaming applications or playing video games frequently? Batteries typically deplete faster when used heavily online. If you fall into this group of users, you should get a phone with a powerful battery. 
  • Memory: Random Access Memory (RAM) and Read-Only Memory (ROM) are the two types of memory found in smartphones. Your phone's CPU and RAM work together to affect the speed and usability of the device. Most often, ROM is referred to as storage. This memory is used to store the operating system, apps, as well as all of the videos, pictures, and songs you wish to store on the phone. It follows that phones with more RAM will operate more quickly, while those with more ROM will provide more storage. A 2 GB RAM and 16 GB ROM should be sufficient for the majority of users. However, if you use your phone frequently, get one with at least 3–4 GB RAM and 64–GB ROM. You may also use a micro SD memory card to expand your ROM, but keep in mind that software stored and operated from memory cards typically operate more slowly. 
  • Camera: The built-in cameras on smartphones are the subject of a lot of excitement, with companies competing to deliver the highest megapixel count. Don't be fooled by this. A camera with higher megapixels doesn't automatically produce photographs that are better. In addition to megapixels, other elements that affect photo quality include the ISO setting, the aperture, and the autofocus response time. If you anticipate taking many photos, choose a phone with a 12 or 16 MP camera and an aperture of f/2.0 or less for excellent images, even in dim lighting. If you don't anticipate using the camera frequently, a phone with an 8–12 MP camera and an aperture of f/2.2 should work great. 
  • Operating System (OS): There are only two Operating Systems (OS) to choose from – Android or iOS. If you opt for iOS, then you are by default opting for an Apple iPhone. All other smartphone makers function on the Android OS. But this also comes in a confusing array of names and versions. Often the Android OS is tweaked by manufacturers to add features which could also result in bloatware, thereby slowing down the phone. So, try the phone out before making the decision.
