    still too expensive for the stated objective, if Google wants to remove fragmentation and standardize the entry level/budget segment, they’ll need to make Android One devices cheaper

    Elroy, Shebi lava is coming to Nigeria…. I have always wanted those Indian companies like micromax to come

      Yeah Lava has a presence in Nigeria, but I doubt this model is in Nigeria

    When I see devices like this, I wonder if the Indian businesses haven’t left it a bit late to try penetrating the African market, unlike their Chinese counterparts?

    In all likelihood, this may never be available in Nigeria, and if it is, on a very limited release.

    The Infinix Hot Note/Pro has most specs better than this for a great deal less cash.
