Top 10 Cheap Smartphones You Can Buy in 2017

Every day, two million smartphones are sold all over the world. In Nigeria, more than four million units are sold in a month; that’s about 7% of the smartphone market. These statistics are amazing. However, what is amazing to the consumer is getting a phone that is coherent with the value. Most people think an expensive phone equals a quality device. At Zokija, we are here to tell you that it is not always the case. There are cheap phones that give about the same performance and utility just as the expensive ones. 

In this post, we will give you the top 10 cheap phones you can buy in 2017. Put in mind, only one of the listed phones is above N30,000. If you want to buy a phone like this quality Samsung device that comes at a good price, then scroll down to see our top 10 list

 

1. Gionee P8W – N30,000

The 5 inch Gionee P8W is a beautiful scratch-resistant phone. The polycarbonate plastic cover ensures that your phone retains its new look even after using it for weeks or months. It comes with a dual primary camera capable of capturing 8MP photos. It also has a front-facing 5MP camera that is suitable for amazing selfies even under low light. This Gionee P8W made the top of our list because of its many features that should only come with expensive phones, especially the 4G connectivity. With Gionee, you know you are getting a device with a long-lasting battery. Gionee failed us this time with the 2300 mAh battery in this device.

The 5.5 inch device comes with Android 7.0 Nougat and Tecno’s HiOS 2.0 which is specially built for the Android Nougat. The only reason why this device comes behind the Gionee P8W is because of its price despite offering about the same specs as the Gionee device.
