MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict

Looking at the specs and features of the Mara X phone, it is difficult to justify its $130 price tag. The average Android Go Edition smartphone with 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB internal storage cost around $85.

You will be able to pick up an itel, TECNO, Infinix or even Samsung smartphone in the same class for $85 to $120. Those competing devices won’t have Gorilla Glass protection and an oleophobic coating on them though. But even at that, $130 is a tough amount to swallow for these specs and features.

The ₦65,000 price tag on Jumia is one of the most ridiculous we have seen. This is a smartphone with entry-level specs, after all.

Our Buyer’s Guide Verdict is a recommendation based on the specs of the device and a general guide to help you understand how much value a device offers for its price. It is not an endorsement of the device. Ask questions and use your judgement when buying any device; MobilityArena takes no responsibility for your buying decisions.
