Top smartphones with high battery capacity for heavy users in Kenya


Battery endurance is one thing we all want when it comes to our favorite gadgets. There are a ton of devices out in the market, but when it comes to battery endurance, very few phones have the stamina to power the device a full a day.

So in this post, we compiled a list of some great devices in the market you can go for which have more battery juice specifically for heavy users.

1. Samsung Galaxy M30

Samsung Galaxy M30 was launched in March this year, primarily targeted at the youths. The device features the latest Android 9.0 Pie, 6.4-inch HD Super AMOLED display, 13MP front camera, 16MP selfie camera lens, and Samsung’s Exynos 7904 Octa-Core processor. Besides, the Galaxy M30 has a 13MP main camera and a 16MP selfie camera plus it comes in two variants 4/64GB or a 6/128GB both with microSD support. Galaxy M30 is powered by a massive 5000mAh Li-Po battery. Galaxy M30 is currently going for approx. Ksh 22,000 for the 4/64GB model.

However at lesser cash, you can opt for the Galaxy M20 with a 6.3-inch TFT display, similar battery capacity but has the internal storage is either 32GB or 64 with 3/4GB RAM. Galaxy M20 starts at a price of Ksh 18,000.
