Here are the top 7 best android phones you can buy

Nokia

Deciding on the absolute best cheap smartphone in Kenya can be a challenge given that the choice doesn’t entirely come down to comparing price tag. Of course, the price can be relative when looking for the best cheap smartphone in 2020, however, one’s cheap is not always someone else affordable. For instance, with the prices of flagship smartphones like Samsung (Galaxy Note 20 Ultra), skyrocketing higher than Ksh 100,000, other shoppers may find anything under Ksh 30,000 cheap while those on tight budgets may be looking below Ksh 15,000 or Ksh 10,000 for a cheap phone.
