  1. Partner KS1 3.5

The name might be sounding weird and considering how cheap the phone is, you will be looking so down on the phone. But it really gets the job done. Although not a spec worthy phone to call your main Smartphone, the phone will be a perfect use for individuals who need an android phone but are not financially buoyant enough to go for the big players. Or, if you just need a phone for your small kids and you don’t want to spend much. Just go for it.

  1. SooCoo V7

If you have been around the Android smartphone realm for a while, the name SooCoo will not sound so weird to you as the one mentioned above. SooCoo is a Chinese company, if you’ve not heard about them at least you must have heard about the SooCoo s60 Action camera or other cameras from the company. The company is known mostly for its cameras and they are not doing quite well in that niche.

Just like I mentioned above, if you need something as cheap as this, SooCoo v7 is still a nice choice.

They entered the Nigerian Smartphone with full velocity and right now they are seriously sliding back, giving way for Nigerian smartphone market big players, Infinix and Tecno. Most users’ complain lie on the fact that Innjoo spare parts can hardly be found in the country. The Innjoo X3 is one of the cheapest Android Smartphones you can buy in Nigeria and you can get it for just 18k.

  1. itel 1409 Dual Sim
    I must be plain here, I don’t like itel smartphones. I see them as that brand that’s always trying to play catch up in the Smartphone market. Just by taking a look at their itel P51 you will notice that they don’t have any new thing tangible feature to offer to Nigerians that other big players are not offering yet and even better. Those that I have seen itel phones in their hands are always complaining about one thing or the other.

Itel Smartphones have always found its way into people’s hands through their parents. They are the type of phone that your parents will buy for you instead of giving you the money to go and get the phone that you like by yourself.

Meanwhile, the one below is not bad compared to the price.

  1. Alcatel Pixi 4 .5 

    This is another smartphone brand that their mission is not well stated in Nigeria. I hardly see their phones in people’s hands if not for the lower feature phones. I wonder how they’ve been surviving for long.

This year, Alcatel released their Idol 4 Pro which was supposed to be their flagship. The idol 4 pro turned out to be a windows 10 variant of their 2016’s idol 4S which is an Android version.

They are definitely one of the few brands sustaining the windows mobile operating system.

Anyway, the Alcatel Pixi 4.5 Smartphone is a reliable and affordable phone. Still a phone I will recommend for you if you are looking for a Smartphone that is small, cheap, simple and still possess some basic features one should expect from an Android phone.

  1. Tecno W2
    And here is a Tecno device. Nigeria’s most famous smartphone brand or atleast it used to hold that title until competitors like infinix divided and parted away with a better chunk of the market. Tecno was at the forefront, during the fight to take over the smartphone market from Nokia. While iOS and top android game players were trying to win worldwide, Tecno was winning in Nigeria with their longer battery life and cheaper phones by putting android smartphone features in the hands of people that couldn’t afford Samsung phones and other phones from other bigger brands.


Now the competition is tough. Techno have been called the people’s choice and they are still trying to live up to that standard by creating cheaper, stronger and easy to maintain smartphone in Nigeria.
