this is the definition of entry level, unless you use your smartphone like a dumb phone ie calls, texts and little browsing you shouldn’t buy bottom drawer smartphones. wouldn’t touch any of these “smartphones” with a 10 ft pole

Like Elroy said, there comes a time when a smallie niece or cousin starts asking for a phone gift. This is just the perfect article to run to when another smallie comes knocking.

I thought infinix had d cheapest phones though. Never knew lumia was even on that list.

Sometimes 3WT, that’s basically what some people would want to do. And maybe use WhatsApp. In that sense, these phones are useful for those looking for a “basic” smartphone.

What about the Opsson Genesis X Mini? It’s got a bigger screen & more compact than the Gionee P2M albeit with a smaller battery.
