Posted by

You will find scores of smartphones that cost ₦50,000 (or $150) and below. However, not all of them offer the same value. If you are shopping in that range, we have compiled for you a list of the very best Android phones under 50000 naira.

First up, what can you expect from smartphones in the ₦50,000 price range? You can expect to see smartphones that combine the following:

  • 4G LTE,
  • a dependable processor,
  • at least 3GB of RAM,
  • at least 32GB of storage,
  • a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, and
  • a beefy battery.

The best Android phones under 50000 naira or 150 dollars

With that in mind, let us jump into our list of the best Android phones under 50000 naira. We even have one that combines 64GB storage and 4GB RAM. Great value for money, if you ask me.

TECNO Camon 11 4GB/64GB – best value for money

TECNO Camon 11 Pro stands head above the shoulders of others in our list of the best smartphones under 50000 naira or 150 dollars

We are starting off with the best bargain available for most users. TECNO Camon 11 Pro stands head above the shoulders of others in our list of the best smartphones under 50000 naira or 150 dollars. Why? Besides the standard fare 6.2″ display, Helio A22 chipset, and 3750mAh battery, it offers a combination of 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. No other smartpone on this list offers that combination.

It is not the most powerful though, as the Helio A22 processor does not pack a powerful punch. But as said earlier, this is the best value for most users – they do not require a power house, but they will find the 64 GB storage very generous.

Price: ₦47,000. TECNO Camon 11 specifications.

Xiaomi REDMI 7 3GB/32G – most powerful and splash resistant

  1. This list surely whets my appetite for some high-end phones. It’s just that what my mouth speaks is not in consonance with what my pockets are saying. Having said this, every other brand listed/mentioned here qualified to be on the list. But, I think Nokia 4.2 doesn’t deserve the space given to it, looking at the sparse specs it’s carrying.

  2. This is a very useful post. .Thank you!

    I use a RedMi 7 and I’m still looking for something to complain about.

    For such a low price, it’s awesome value for money..

    Thank you very much!

  3. Beautiful list. Thanks for including the honorary mention..
    I love the honorary members most.

  4. If I must go for any of these phones, it has to be the Nokia 6.1 plus, I’ve seen this phone before and I love it. But I thought the price of this device is more expensive than 50k. I red it in article like that, saying there are two types of this phone, the original version and Chinese version. Could this 50k in price is the Chinese version?

  5. Nice list, but I couldn’t find my precious valem phantom Z+ in it. Valem Phantom Z+ is one of the few tablets you can use to do your office work and still able to use it to answer phone calls. Thanks to the 4G LTE for best data connectivity speed, The Tab is equipped with an Android 9.0 operating system built for high performance on Octa-Core structure for best performance
