If you are looking for a smartphone for less than Ksh 12,000, you may have seen the Huawei Y5 Prime 2018 and/or the Infinix Hot 6. The Huawei Y5 Prime 2018 is available on Jumia for Ksh 9,999 while the Infinix Hot 6 is available for Ksh 11,400. Keep in mind in this post we will be talking about the Infinix Hot 6 not the slightly more expensive, Infinix Hot 6 Pro.
The Infinix Hot 6 Pro has been in retail stores in Kenya for a couple of months while the Huawei Y5 Prime 2018 was just launched in Kenya last week. These two phones target the same customers, the youth who want the most recent smartphones with the latest features. The customers these two phones are targeting do not want to spend a ton of cash on a phone and that is why these two are ideal.
Both the Infinix Hot 6 Pro and the Huawei Y5 Prime 2018 are capable smartphones that you will not go wrong with. They are reasonably priced and aim to offer a different experience from other smartphones within the same price range. This is a very competitive price point and both Huawei and Infinix know this. Infinix has been in this segment for years while Huawei has had a handful of devices over the years. So, who will you go with?
