30 Best Cheap Affordable Phones in Kenya (2018)

Best Cheap Affordable Smartphone Prices in Kenya Jumia

What are the best cheap affordable phones in Kenya? These days, getting a mobile phone at a cheap price, is possible. With these affordable smartphones, not only do you get good design, but also very good features. Gone are the days where cheapness was associated with low quality. In this list of best affordable and cheap smartphones in Kenya, I have listed phones of various brands. You’ll get Infinix, Tecno, Samsung, Oppo, Huawei, Ulefone, Nokia and Itel. When it comes to the prices, most of the smartphones in this list, cost under 10k in Kenya. However, I have also listed some that are a little bit expensive (20k). You should at least get these specifications in this list: 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, Android, 5 inch screen and quality cameras.
