Under Ksh. 15,000 is what defines the lower mid-range smartphone segment in Kenya.
It is in this segment that you find some of the best lower mid-range smartphones available on the Kenyan market.
Without any much further ado, here is the best a Ksh. 15,000 budget can get you in Kenya (July 2015 Edition).
Infinix Hot Note X551
The Infinix Hot Note X551 ranked well in our previous list and is still one of the finest budget smartphones on the Kenyan market.
We did a full review of the smartphone a couple of weeks ago and once you go through it, you will realize why the smartphone has sold out on Jumia Kenya on several occasions.
Samsung Galaxy J1
The Galaxy J1 is a great choice for the buyer who simply wants an affordable smartphone with a Samsung logo on it.
The Samsung Galaxy J1 is by itself a beauty and packs some decent features here and there with its highlighted feature being that it is 4G ready.
Microsoft Lumia 535
The Microsoft Lumia is one of the best budget smartphones that we currently have on the Kenyan market.
The Microsoft Lumia 535 is a great choice if you desire to jump ship to the Windows Phone OS or simply if you are out shopping for a smartphone that is big and beautiful.

Tecno Boom J7
The Boom J7 is a fine choice if you are out shopping for a trendy smartphone with a great design and an affordable price tag.
HTC Desire 320
The HTC Desire 320 is a fine budget smartphone that launched early in 2015.
The Desire 320 features a Powerful Performance Profile plus a handful of premium features that every budget Smartphone buyer desires.

Bonus: Microsoft Lumia 540
The Microsoft Lumia 540 is a fantastic smartphone that launched in Kenya just a couple of weeks ago. The Lumia 540 is very much alike to the Lumia 535 in design and specifications.
However, one of its standout features is that it boasts of a 720p HD display and through this, it provides a vibrant Windows Phone experience.
