Posted by

Box PrimeU is a cheap smartphone introduced into the Nigerian market. Its target is the bottom of the pyramid, so it is no surprise that it has a 4-inch display with a 480 x 800 pixel resolution, a 1900mAh battery and a 5 megapixel main camera. The selfie camera is a mere 2 megapixel unit.

There’s a quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM, as well as 16GB internal storage.

So, what we are looking at here is a budget smartphone in the same class as MTN’s Freetel ICE 2 and 9mobile’s Rhino 2. The app icons on the home screen of the official phone images suggest that Guaranty Trust Bank has a hand in the production and/or marketing of this cell phone.

The icons include GTbank mobile banking app, 737 app, and GTWorld app. See the picture? lastly, the Box PrimeU is currently available only on GTBank’s SME MarketHub. Go figure.

  1. This is not a bad phone, at least it’s a cheap phone one can use as backup or let’s call it as a second phone. I will pick this phone ahead of Freetel Ice 2, because it comes with 5MP rear camera, while Freetel has just 2MP. Also got 16GB ROM and Freetel has 8GB ROM. And battery size is more than Freetel battery capacity, 1900mAh compare to 1340mAh of Freetel ice 2. The N16,000 tag price is not bad too
