Cheapest Smart Phones in Nigeria Below 55k: 2017 List w/ Price & Specs

The importance of smart phones in our day-to-day activities is so enormous than one can do without owning one. With thousands of useful apps and tools aimed at making living fun and easy for everyone in circulation, one can hardly do without a smart phone that allows enough storage for apps/games in large numbers.

This is why techs would normally advice that you go for devices that aren’t completely out-fashioned, outdated or not in line with modern realities.

Our focus today is on mid-range Android smart phones below NGN55,000 (ie. from ₦20,000 to ₦50,000). We sourced the price-list from around our locale and from popular online shopping malls in Nigeria.

We chose this price range because what may seem expensive to Mr. John may be as cheap as airtime allowance to Mr. James. Whichever way, this price range will suit anyone that’s looking for affordable mid-range smart phones in Nigeria.
