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.

I appreciate all your feedback from the December 2015 Buying Guide.

P.s: All the smartphones on this list are available for purchase from Jumia Kenya
