Every year, I cover this favorite topic, the best shops to buy the best smartphone in Phnom Penh. A new major update to last year review is that you can easily buy a Motorola phone. From Moto C to Moto G, these budget smartphones with Motorola brand are available in most phone shops in the Cambodian capital city.
Believe it or not, you can buy any smartphone in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. There are thousand shops across this Southeast Asian city. From Apple to Samsung to Huawei, you have a lot of choices. This year, Motorola made a comeback to Cambodia after a long absence from the market. Apple iPhone is probably the most popular smartphone among Cambodian users.
Latest price: iPhone 8 : from $838 at Smart, an authorized Apple reseller (link here for pre-order).
iPhone is much loved here in Cambodia. Cambodian people love iPhone more than anything else. Although the price isn’t so affordable, the local people save as much as they can to buy a used iPhone, if not a new one. This popularity of iPhone use in Cambodia means that the Apple brand is also widespread across the country. In Phnom Penh, any smartphone shops or stores (not really official Apple stores) have the latest or even previous models of the iPhone available in stock for grab. If you compare the iPhone price in Phnom Penh with other cities in Southeast Asia, you can always get a better price. In addition to this, anyone in Phnom Penh with deep pocket can always buy the newest iPhone model as soon as it’s available in the US market. This has already happened with the previous models like iPhone 6 and iPhone 7. So if you’re planning to spend money on buying an iPhone 8 or iPhone X, you will surely be able to get one as soon as it’s released. Check out these Phnom Penh shops for Apple iPhones and prices.
