  1. You excluded Umidigi A5pro. Kindly make sure you research the phone so you won’t limit your audience to under performing ‘popular’ phones.

  2. Oukitel? I know the brand and they’re really good. But wouldn’t it be hard to find items compatible with it in the market, considering the fact that it’s not common in Nigeria? And it may not be easy to repair when damaged, since finding replacements for damaged parts may be hard.
    Pardon me, but I just want to know if it would be a good idea to buy an Oukitel phone cos I’ve been eyeing them sha.

    • Everything you stated above is 100% correct. I don’t normally advise people to go for them only if you are patient enough to wait for parts/accessories after shipment when faulty. But on the flipside, they are a really decent brand with less awareness here.

  3. Nokia 2 is not on the list. Its price ranges from 32500 – 35000 naira on jumia. Its a phone with 4Gvolte,1gb ram, quad core, a 4100mah battery and a corning gorilla glass 3 protection.

  4. Alcatel Pixie Plus and Infinix HOT 5 got my attention. The duo would be a great buy.
    Thanks for sharing this with us. ?

  5. Hmmmm…. Nice. Great compilation! But…. The picture you put up for infinix hot 5 isn’t correct cos it doesn’t show its fingerprint scanning feature. Other than that, great work
