5 Awesome Budget Smartphones Priced under Ksh. 10,000: December 2015

December 5, 2015
Comments off

Under Ksh. 10,000 defines the budget smartphone segment in Kenya.

Smartphone vendors now focus on the under Ksh. 10,000 segment, a segment that for long was dominated by second-rate smartphones that struggled to provide the value that keen smartphone buyers now demand.

December is a great month to buy a smartphone since retailers will often offer a number of festive season deals and thus you will able to save more.

That said, here is the best you can get with a Ksh. 10,000 budget.

Ps. I appreciate for your feedback from the October 2015 Buying Guide.
