If you have a budget and are looking for the best phone deals under 80000 naira, you can expect to find smartphones with decent performance, 4GB RAM, and 64 GB built-in storage. Other factors like screen size, camera specs, and battery size will differ, as each manufacturer deems fit.

Let’s look at some of the phones under 80000 naira that we were able to find in Nigeria right now in 2022. It is a mixed bag: some have unforgivable omissions, while others offer everything you expect.

Some phones under 80000 naira

Samsung A03 4/64 GB

Samsung A03 has a 6.5-inch display, 48MP rear camera, 5MP selfie camera, and 5000mAh battery. One huge omission on this phone is fingerprint scanner. Yes; there is no fingerprint scanner in it. If that is a deal breaker for you, it is time to move on to the next phone. If you will buy it anyway, the price of the 4GB RAM + 64 GB storage variant is ₦70,000 only. Plus, Samsung is silent about the processor, which usually means it is a crappy one.


With a 6.52-inch, 720×1600 pixels, display and Gorilla Glass 3 protection, 13-megapixel rear camera, 5MP front camera, 4100mAh battery, OPPO A16k narrowly escaped hitting the ₦80,000 mark.

It is powered by a MediaTek Helio G35 processor, coupled with 4GB RAM + 64 GB storage. It will set you back by ₦79,900. Wait. Like the Samsung A03 before it, the A16K does not have a fingerprint scanner either. Cripes. How did we get to the point where we have ₦80,000 phones without fingerprint scanner?

And it is no surprise that these two phones are not among the bestselling phones under 80000 naira. It just sounds like poor value for money to spend that much and still have to beg for something as basic as a fingerprint reader. There are ₦50,000 and ₦60,000 smartphones with fingerprint functionality, for crying out loud.

The bestselling phones under 80000 naira

The phones listed below all sell at prices below 80000 naira, and are selling like hot cakes (based on what retailers told us). And it is no surprise: they have fair prices and do not skimp on the features you want.

TECNO Pova Neo

Pova Neo packs a large 6.8-inch display with 720×1640 pixels, a Helio P22 processor, and a massive 6000mAh battery, the largest on this list. There is a rear fingerprint scanner, a 13MP rear camera, and an 8MP front camera. The 4GB RAM + 64GB storage variant sells for between ₦71,000 and ₦74,000, depending on where you look.

Infinix Hot 11 Play

Another model on our list of the best phones under 80000 naira is Infinix Hot 11 Play. It sports a large 6.82-inch, 720×1640 pixels display, a massive 6000mAh battery, 13MP rear camera, and an 8MP selfie camera.

You’d almost think that it has the exact same specs as the Pova Neo, but the processor here is a more capable Helio G35. The fingerprint scanner is on the back here. The price of the 4/64 GB variant is ₦73,000.

Xiaomi Redmi 10C

Redmi 10C is one of the best phones under 80000 naira

The Redmi 10C has a 6.71-inch display with 720×1600 pixels resolution and is powered by a Snapdragon 680 processor. There is a side-mounted Fingerprint scanner and a 5000mAh battery. The variant with 4GB of RAM and 64 GB built-in storage sells for ₦78,000.

As far as we can tell, the Redmi 10C is the best deal you can get for under ₦80,000 right now and also the best Redmi phone for that price. You can look for it and others on this list from Pointek, Raya, Slot, Swot, Finet, Jumia, Konga, Jiji, and other stores.
