MobilityArena Buyer’s Guide Verdict

Looking at the specs and features of the Mara Z phone, it is difficult to justify its $190 price tag. Quite a number of mid-range droid with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB internal storage cost much less.

You will be able to pick up a TECNO, Infinix or Xiaomi smartphone in the same class and with more recent software for $150 to $165. There is no other way to say it: the ₦90,000 price tag in Nigeria is ridiculous for thwe specs.

The Mara Z may be one of the latest phones, but it will be a tough sell in a market choked full of competing products that cost much less.

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.
