Technology 101: What you should know about ODM & OEM

Whenever there’s a new smartphone in the market, the first thing we check are its features such as RAM, camera, ROM, display, etc. Seldom do we try to find out who manufacturers these various components. What difference does this make to us as a user? 

All the difference in the world!

Have you ever heard of OEM & ODM? Probably not, we’re guessing. Here’s what they mean – 

OEM: OEM is an acronym for Original Equipment Manufacturer. Simply put, if your smartphone company is an OEM, all of the product’s components are manufactured in-house. 

Advantages of OEM – 

1. Quality

Since OEM parts and components are produced in-house, they undergo stringent quality checks. They are also guaranteed to be compatible with your equipment and perform according to factory specs.

2. Support

Since they’re all produced in-house, parts and components are easily available in the authorised service centres. 

3. Longevity

An OEM’s parts last longer as they will always be of high quality material due to the standardized testing and quality controls required for the envisioned end product.

4. Warranty

Perhaps one of the most important benefits of OEM parts is that each part comes with a manufacturer’s warranty.  

ODM: ODM is an acronym for Original Design Manufacturer. An ODM company designs and manufactures a product. Just like OEM parts and components, the final product also goes through strict quality checks, which negates the possibility of any flaws in products that hit the stores.
