Amhaz (Stars Communications) shop

Download the latest pricelist on: http://amhaz.herokuapp.com/

Hello everybody,

I heard that Amhaz (Stars Communications) is a phone shop in Dahiyeh, Beirut that has the best prices. Is this true? Should I trust them? Do they provide warranties?

Thanks

Yup Amhaz usually provides lower prices but I'm not sure about the warranty.

Regarding prices, Amhaz will sell you phones at the same price as he sells the wholesalers.

Re: Amhaz (Stars Communications) shop

He's the official ''tehrib'' distributor in Lebanon so he's cheaper (way cheaper) than other shops.
The advantage over others is that he doesn't ''play'' with the phones before selling them,so you get them straight from the manufacturing without somebody messing around replacing the battery or charger with false ones ;)
It doesn't have warrenty but generally a mobile phone's default is obvious when you turn it on (no sound,display or camera) SO you SHOULD try it before buying it just in case...

I've just been told that Amhaz replaces parts (including the main boards of the cell phone sometimes) with Chinese ones. I am not sure about this information, but that's what I've been told.

I bought my Blackberry Torch from him, and its cleaner than my friend's torch from Official Reseller in KSA, his wobbles and has a cranky keyboard. So +1 Amhaz

Of course jaelous shops and specially the ones who are ''mad3oumin'' from the official companies will say any sort of lies against him to justify the 200-300$ they ask more.
It was the case of PCandParts , many PC shops used to say that all its products are refurbished while we all know he just doesn't take 200% from original price like major PC shops in Lebanon and all his products are even newer than them.
Both Amhaz and PCandparts are wholesalers which accept to sell to individuals so they will never have the time to change boards of thousands of devices each week (sales volume of Amhaz), it will cost them more in employees hand work then ;)

I guess you do know the cross roads between Beir El 3abed and Mouawwad, right? If you take the route that takes you into Beir El 3abed main street (from that cross roads), Amhaz should be on your left. Well, you can go to the cross roads and ask for Amhaz, they'll tell you where his shop is located.

Re: Amhaz (Stars Communications) shop

Stars prices are way cheaper than the prices of other shops and official distributors, in example: Galaxy tab costs 599$ @ CTC (official distributor of Samsung) and 450$ @ Amhaz , that's a 150$ difference, well i don't want the warranty if it's gonna cost me an additional 150$.

Yeah but its a BIG risk! You may either save 150$ or lose 450$ if the problem is huge, so the device would become useless.

People think of warranty that if you took a good care of your phone, you wont need it. But, many problem can be as a result of manufacturing defects. You might not know whats the problem from the fist moment, it might appear later after using your phone/device for a period of time.

Re: Amhaz (Stars Communications) shop

I hesitated a bit before writing this, but seeing the topic's name is "Amhaz (star communication) shop" then this is not out of topic.

Amhaz does not pay taxes, as previously said, he is the official "tehrib" shop.
supporting his shop is supporting piracy, stealing and everything that this country stands for.

Amhaz is also "mad3oum" but his "da3m" is political and he is in fact hurting our industry, ie: there was a story going around that Amhaz forced the sony-ericsson distributors to close in lebanon as he was actually competing with them! In any country in the world, the distributor should be the one providing the retailers, but guess what, this is not a country.

What kind of business are you trying to support?

The extra money on products is the one enforced by the product distributors who take licenses from official manufacturers, this is how things work in every "civilized" country and this is why all distributors are finding it hard to enter the lebanese market with such "mad3oumin" and "above the law" shops.

So if you give a +1 or are very happy you got your phone for 50$ less, please think again...

Re: Amhaz (Stars Communications) shop

I agree with you but the problem is that many companies are runed by stealers in Lebanon and the difference between Amhaz and HTC for exemple can reach up to 250$ for a phone.
Plus CEPP (dunno if they are still SE dealers) used to bring new phones with 2 to 3 months later than Europe while Amhaz bring them at the same time or even sometimes before Europe!!
If it was only 50$ difference I think nobody here will ever think to buy from Amhaz.
As for ''gemrok'' taxes we all know that their colonels and generals (amn el a3m) take the money for them and not for the Lebanese government

Re: Amhaz (Stars Communications) shop

hey just remember that customers didn't search for official retailer they search good quality and cheap prices so i buy all my phones from amhaz and never had a problem with any device,in fact i have never repaired a phone that i have bought from amhaz, and i will not wait 2 or 3 months to get my phone for a higher price while it's available now for a cheaper price i am not concerned how or from where he get his devices or if he pay taxes or "min de3mo" as long that i get phone for good price and with a good quality.
and if you say that this is piracy supporting it's not my job to ask every shop about his products and to ask for papers to prove that those products are legal.
in other country no one can put a pirated CD in his shop and it's impossible for a phone to pass the "gemrok" and the security if it's not for official retailer so when we will be like that ?
