Read further for some vital details about these devices.
First on our list of cheap Android phones in Nigeria is the Box PrimeU, an Android 6.0 Marshmallow device. It has a 4-inch display with a 480 x 800 pixel resolution and a 1900 mAh battery. The back camera is a 5 megapixel snapper, while the selfie camera is a 2 megapixel unit. Internal storage is 16 GB, which is pretty decent. RAM is 1 GB.
The price has dropped to N10,000 since its introduction in early 2018. It is being marketed as Nigeria’s most affordable smartphone. It is available almost exclusively on SME MarketHub. This affordable smartphone offers great value for money.
Also on our list is the FERO U451. What it offers is a dual SIM 3G smartphone with a 4.5-inch display. Batter capacity is 1800 mAh. The camera is a 5 megapixel unit. At this price point, you are not likely to find the latest operating system, so what you have here is Android v4.4 Kitkat. Powering everything is a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor. The FERO U451 costs NGN14,500.00 in the market.
Innjoo X3 is a 3G smartphone that offers a 4-inch display, 4 GB internal storage and 512 MB of RAM. The battery capacity is 1300 mAh. The X3 initially sold for about N18,000, but the price has dropped to around N12,000 now. We have an Innjoo X3 review published, if you’d like to explore the device further.
Partner is a relatively new mobile brand in the Nigerian market. It is hard to find footing in a price-sensitive, competitive market like Nigeria. But Partner may well be off to a good start with the KS1. It is one of the cheapest smartphones in the country, if not the very cheapest. Finding a smartphone for N10,000 is like the proverbial needle in the haystack. So, the Partner K51 should sell like hot cake if marketed well.
The humble specs include a 3.5-inch display, 3G internet, a single-core 1.2 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, and 1.3 megapixel cameras. The battery has a capacity of 1,300 mAh. Like we said, these are really humble specs. You can check out our full Partner King Series KS1 specifications.
The Partner Mobile KS1 is available for between NGN10,000 and N14,000 in the market. This phone is available in retail stores, including Slot, Konga, Pointek, and others.
