When it comes to the Kenyan market, I’m skeptical of talking about budget-smartphones because it’s very different, unlike other markets. The budget range in Kenya is often the under Ksh 10,000; however, let us upgrade and look at what’s beyond the entry-level devices. In this list, I’ve compiled the smartphones that will offer you a better value for your money priced between Ksh 10, 000 and Ksh 20,000.

You get a 6.4-inch 720p HD AMOLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and it comes in a 3GB/32GB ROM memory configuration which is good at this price range. The device packs a 4000mAh non-removable battery. With a 32MP selfie camera on the front housed in a water-drop notch, there are limitless capabilities for selfie lovers. At the same time, there’s a dual 13MP + 5MP camera on the back.
