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 February 2016 Buying Guide.

P.s: Smartphones on this list are available for purchase from Jumia Kenya (one from Kilimall)

    • Hi,

      That’s awful.

      I am yet to use the Cubot P11 and thus i can’t say more about it. But from the way you sound, it looks like it isn’t that awesome when compared to the Note S.

      It possibly could be a faulty unit and i don’t understand why they aren’t replacing it.

      Anyway, best of luck.
