  1. Thanks for this article Mister MO, this is really useful. Now I know the kind of phone to purchase at this prices. But I think Huawei Nova 3i should also made this list, the device is around N87,000 or so, and it’s a 128GB storage phone too.

    1. I’m sorry. Did you read through the piece at all? Huawei Nova 3i is 3rd on the list. I think it’ll be good to always check through before placing comments.

  2. The midrange space is way to wide it need further classification to prune it down.
    One of the most interesting thing about this smart phone category series is the ease of recommendation. Kudos for that..
    Someone asked for smartphone to buy, simply send them a link of their budget category job done.

  3. If I were to choose, I’ll pick UMIDIGI F1 FHD+ with MediaTek Helio P60, 4GB RAM, 128GB ROM, 5150mAh coupled with 18W fast charging adapter. And yet, still sells for ₦66,900
    It’s so beautiful.

  4. I copped this lenovo k5 Pro 6gig ram and 128gig for just 62k off aliexpress.. I feel that is the most budget friendly price out there. Possess dual camera.. qc 3.0 its really a beast

    1. I will appreciate if you can put me through on how to order items from Aliexpress. Thanks in advance

    2. Download the app or go to the website, create an account or just login with Facebook or other social account, and start shopping. You will need a debit/credit card to process your order.

      I have been able to use my GTBank card to make purchases there without any issues.

  5. All the mentioned smartphones above really worth it. If am to purchase I now know which one to go for. Thank you very much Mr MO for the writeup. More knowledge sir
