Top 5 Smartphones Under Ksh 10,000

When it comes to buying a new smartphone, not everyone has all the money in the world to spend on an expensive device. If you have Ksh 10,000 or less to spend on a smartphone, you do not have to be forced to get a used or fake device. You can actually get smartphones under Ksh 10,000 that will offer you exactly what you have been looking for.

This article will be looking at smartphones that you can get right now (March 2017) for Ksh 10,000. Most of these devices included on this list are available on most ecommerce platforms and we have included a link to each one where applicable. I have included devices from brands that have a presence in Kenya as I do not want to recommend a device that you can’t find accessories for and may not find a repair centre if it is damaged.
