  1. Thanks once again for your time and articles, you made us understand more about smartphone and their prices, we appreciate you. But how come most budget phones like this packs more bigger battery than the mid-range and flagship phones. Or should we say it’s market strategy

  2. One possible reason, among others, could be that high-end phones are often much more power efficient than entry level phones. So, these entry-level devices would tend to need heftier batteries.

  3. Thank you very much Mr MO for taking your time. I never knew are great smartphones for such amount. This is so great. 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♀️

  4. This list makes choosing so difficult. I have my top list choices, though. But if I were to settle with one in particular, I’ll pick Infinix Note 6. I can see it comes in 2 variants: 1GB & 2GB RAM. The 2nd after this is – Gionee P10m. Followed closely by Samsung Galaxy A2 Core. The only downside of this is the battery which clocked at 2600mAh.
    We’ll appreciate it, sir, if you could keep updating this list from time to time for us.
    Thank you sir. And, well done.

  5. Kudos!!! I can imagine the stress of keeping up with the pace or rate at which smart phones are being churned out to our market this days..
    Having grasp of all this, isn’t a play job..
    I say.. Well done sir..

  6. These best Phones in a category and the Comparison posts are some of my favourite Mobility articles.

    Looking at phones in this category, I think I would rather buy used for the price although I understand the appeal of buying brand new.

  7. wow, great budget devices,thanks for this list. didnt even know there was a device like tecno spark youth, well i think its truly for the youth.

  8. Great job. But infinix hot 6 is far more expensive than the price stated here. Please do necessary adjustment
