Forget the likes of Samsung, Sony, Huawei, HTC, Tecno and new entrants like Infinix, Injoo… etc… etc,  that have dominanted the Kenyan smartphone market recently, I am not focusing on those.

These phones are very much pocket friendly, considering the  specs they carry. Currently you can only get such phones by importing them into the country but I personally think, they are worth the hustle.
