iLand mobile released their flagship device, the iLand Genesys 3 in 2017. The company launched the Genesys series back in 2015 and has since gone on to release updates yearly. The Genesys is a midrange device, very affordable with lots of mouthwatering specs.

The device was mainly designed with aluminium and has a plastic like a cover. It’s a sleek smartphone, with curved edges and very portable too. That circle at the back of the device is not a fingerprint scanner, it is the island’s logo. The fingerprint sensor is situated at the front, on the home button for easy access.

  1. I bought the Iland Genesys 3 mobile phone for 36,000 IN June and once I connected it to the internet, I started getting pop up ads. The ads became intrusive, forced itself on my browsers and other applications and even began installing unsolicited apps on my phone. I did a soft reset and a hard resent, and the virus did not go. So I went online to find the root of the problem and found that the phone came with malwares from the manufacturer. I finally took my office leave in September and went to the iland mobile store in Ikeja where I was told that there was nothing that could be done about the malware as it came with the phone. After insisting that they change the O.S they decided to humour me, and did whatever to make the malwares disappear , then a week later the malwares reappeared with the pop up ads and the intrusive installations.
    The malwares that came with the phone are Android innovation and Support.
    And if you check the system app you’ll see the com.android.snap malware too which is actually com.gyaun.android.
    I also went online to check for the actual makers of this phone and I am 99.9% sure it is not made by Nigerians. But a western country that sees third world nations as a dumping ground for rejected brands.
    Sure the phone is heavy and strong, but if you do not want to have your life annoyed by this malware, you might want to get a phone from a known brand with a good reputation.
