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

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

I have received a lot of feedback from the August 2015 buying guide (Thank You!) and I incorporated your valuable suggestions in this September 2015 list.

My greatest wishes is that the next buying guide will at least have a device running Android 5.0 Lollipop priced under Ksh. 10,000.

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

Infinix Hot 2

The Infinix Hot 2 is a smartphone any budget smartphone buyer would love to own. The Hot 2 is a fantastic smartphone that was designed by Infinix in collaboration with Google (Yes Google!) and the smartphone is part of the Android One program.

The technical specifications profile of the Infinix Hot 2 grays that of its rivals and I am confident to say that the smartphone will, just like its predecessor be a massive hit.
