About

Hello and welcome to my website. I am the person you see on the left. My full names are Dr Mbah Melvin Temo, but you can call me Dr Temo. I hope it is an easy name to remember

I graduated from the School of Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences, the University of Buea in the year 2015. I am currently living in Bafoussam, Cameroon where I work as a Chief Medical Officer. I am also a partner with a company that runs an android app called DigiPOS, a digital point of sale service aimed at making the transfer of airtime and money easier across all network carrier platforms in Cameroon. However,  I shuttle between the big cities of  Yaounde, Douala and Bamenda. You will soon understand why I travel a lot. 


As you would come to see in my blog, I have a lot of interests ranging from Health, Tech, Internet and Startup Business Ideas.

In early childhood, my ambition was to become a Medical Doctor. A Medical Doctor in an African family is often associated with great family pride, and that is something my parents are very much proud. However, in my secondary school years (in the prestigious Cameroon Protestant College, Bali Cameroon), my colleagues and I already realised how knowledgeable and geeky I was when it came to issues regarding phones, laptops, the latest tech advances, internet and Microsoft Windows. At the time (2007), one could only have a glimpse of a desktop computer at the computer lab in my school. I am grateful to my dad who paid for my computer classes in 2001 when I just got to Secondary school. I believe that was the early push I always needed. It is worth mentioning that my first devices were the legendary Nokia 3310, Siemens T90 and the Motorola V3. I owned the Nokia 3310 in the year 2006 as a reward for my brilliant performance at the GCE Ordinary Level.


After I passed my Advanced level in 2008, I made the competitive entrance exam into the school of Medicine at the University of Buea. And this is where my opportunities! I was able to own my first laptop, a Sony Vaio with 16gb of Storage and 256mb of RAM, running Microsoft Windows. At the time, it was a beastly machine and was even much more faster for me when I finally saved some money for a RAM upgrade. This was the beginning of my learning cycle in Tech as I frequently experimented in formatting my operating system, installing and testing apps and helping colleagues resolve their common computer problems. It was not only limited to software but also hardware. Below is are photos in my earlier years. In one, I am seen opening my colleague's packard Bell laptop for repairs and in the other, I was customizing one of my colleague's phones with my bluetooth earpiece on ( a rarity back in the days)




 The year 2010 was a blessed year for me. I finally laid hands on a second handed T-Mobile G1, which I purchased from a third party while in med school. This was my first Android device! Then I began learning about custom roms, root access, phone customizations and optimizations. I was always hungry for the next firmware to flash, the next best app to have, the best configurations for internet access, the best internet settings, etc. 


By the year 2011, I realized i had problem ( lol, well not exactly a problem). I always had this urge to always upgrade or change my devices as fast as i could. That was a way to try new experiences and experiment with devices. That was how I sold my first device. I now developed a habit of using a phone for averagely 2 or 3 months. Some of you will be asking how was that possible. Well, this was because I always tweaked my devices to be best possible state. This amazed the buyers who prefered to get a tweaked version rather than getting a new boring phone. Another factor which contributed to this was that internet was still expensive and few people had knowledge about smartphones. I then switched to home based brands like Tecno which dominated the Cameroonian markets for their cheap offerings and easily customizable roms.


Many of my friends and colleagues were amazed by my skills and asked me to create a website or blog. Some even said they never understood how I ended up in med school and was wasting such an incredible talent in Tech. So in 2014, I began this blog. By this time, I easily averaged 15+ phones used per year and felt it was a good time to blog. Unfortunately, I could not keep up with it, as I was in my final Year of Med school which was challenging. I later graduated in 2015. Below are some photos from the graduation with my parents.









 After the graduation, I got a job as a doctor and this enabled me to have money to get more devices to try. By early 2016, I established deals with online retailers in China (Aliexpress, Alibaba, Gearbest, etc), Spain and Switzerland (where I had some friends to collect parcels) and the US ( Ebay, Amazon, Newegg). I was able to import gadgets , ranging from smartphones, laptops, smart bands, etc at affordable prices. This enabled me try them out and sell some off as brand new items at steep discounts. This was because what mattered to me was not profit but the idea of trying out new items.


In 2017, Jumia, an African online market eventually gained its grounds in Cameroon. They supply a wide range of merchandise though at more expensive prices (as compared to competitors overaseas) at the time of this writing. Though the price tags on items were not particuarly competitive, I still got many items from Jumia for reviews and for my loyal fans. Because of this, I travelled alot sometimes to get items as first hand for reviews and recommendations.

By now, I am sure you have a picture of me. Let's head to why I have finally decided on dedicate more time to blogging. This is 2019, and I noticed a widespread and frustrating problem when I sourced for information online about the latest tech in Cameroon, the latest smartphones found in Cameroon and their prices and an overview of Internet and cellular network companies. Also, no links point to recommended phones to get quickly in shops in the country and some reviews to guide customers. The information obtained online doesn't apply v to the Cameroonian context. With the ever-growing tech and active community in Cameroon, there is a constant search of data on the above subjects in their immediate environment. That is what this blog is here. It is for you, the Cameroonian community and the world at large. I promise to bring up to date legit content as soon as possible. 

The entire content of this blog was done by me with extensive research and playing around with codes. Eventually, I hope to link up with more people and with online websites in Cameroon and make life easier for people searching valuable information on the above topics. I hope to update this page as the need be.


Please follow me on my social media tags on the top of the site.  Stay tuned. Thanks once more guys.
