Top 5 Smartphones in the Kshs. 15,000 Price Range

Top5

With the many Smartphones available on the market, choosing the one that is perfect for you can be challenging. With this in mind, I have decides to compile a list of the top 5 Smartphones that you can get for Kshs 15,000 (give or take a few hundred shillings). When coming up with this list, I have looked at design, camera, battery, display, processors used among other features. I know there are so many Smartphones in this range but the ones listed here are based on my personal preferences. The list is in no particular order.

Microsoft Lumia 535

The Lumia 535 is the first Lumia Smartphone with the “Microsoft” branding. The Lumia 535 is an entry level Smartphone with some amazing specs. The Lumia 535 has a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 960 x 540 translating to a pixel density of 220PPI. It is powered by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 200 processor coupled with 1GB of RAM. This combination makes performance snappy and fast when running most apps.

The Lumia 535 has 5MP rear and front facing cameras. The 5MP front camera has a wide-angle lens meaning that the quality is going to be high and you can fit more people into your selfies. Storage capacity on the Lumia 535 is 8GB but can be expanded using a microSD card. The battery on this phone has a 1905mAh capacity that can last you through the whole day depending on your usage. The price of the Lumia 535 in Kenya is between Kshs 15,000 and 17,000.

Wiko Rainbow

Wiko is a new brand in Kenya and its Smartphones seem to be taking over. The Wiko Rainbow is one Smartphone that has caught my eyes. This Smartphone has a 5-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. Powering the Wiko Rainbow is a 1.3GHz quad core processor and 1GB of RAM.

Wiko Rainbow HD

A 200mAh battery provides the power needed to keep the Wiko Rainbow on. Storage capacity for this Smartphone is limited to only 4GB. This can be expanded using a microSD card but I still think Wiko should have just had 8GB of memory from the start. The cameras for the Wiko Rainbow include an 8MP main one and 2MP front facing one. The price of the Wiko Rainbow in Kenya ranges from Kshs. 15,000 to 18,000.

Huawei Ascend G6

The Huawei Ascend G6 is one good looking Smartphone. This phone has one of those designs that will always attract attention anywhere you go. It has a 4.5-inch screen with a resolution of 960 x 540 giving you a pixel density of 245ppi. Huawei has used a 1.2GHz quad core processor combined with 1GB of RAM to ensure the performance of this Smartphone is reliable.

The cameras on the Huawei Ascend G6 are really impressive for its price with an 8MP main camera and a 5MP front facing camera. Do not expect to store all your photos on this Smartphone’s memory as it’s maxed at 4GB. The good news is that there is a MicroSD card slot if you want to expand the memory. The battery capacity is 2000mAh and this can last you the whole day depending on usage. The price of the Huawei Ascend G6 in Kenya is between Kshs 15,000 and 17,000.
