To get a good smartphone, you will need to have around Ksh 20, 000 on you. That is the ideal situation on paper; this is not the real situation for most people. The truth of the matter is that most people, who badly need a smartphone, operate with a budget of as low as 10k. A few years ago, it was almost impossible to get a phone at such a low price.
Some of the new entry models have made it possible for people to own smartphones with as low as ten thousand shillings. Tecno happens to be one of the brands that have made that possible. Putting in mind that this is an affordable model, it is deemed as a credible phone by most people. With a budget of less than 10K, there are several phones that you may be able to buy from Tecno with that cash, let me bring some of them to light so that it will be easy for you the next time you want to get a phone.
Tecno Y6 comes at an average price of around Ksh 8, 500. This means that it is way below the 10K mark. It is a good phone as you get some of the latest apps to work with. Let us take a look at some of the specs that you get with this phone; Tecno Y6 comes with a plastic body which has an attractive look from a distance. You will just love how colorful this phone happens to be. The beauty is not only on the inside as it also comes packaged with other goodies which you will definitely fall for.
It is 5.0 inch in size which makes it the ideal phone size for most people at any day. If you are looking for a phone to take you by before you are able to afford a high-end phone, Tecno Y6 may be the phone that you have been looking for. It runs on the 4.4.2 Android OS and is powered by a 1.0GHz Dual Core processor with a 1GB RAM. The three gives this phone a performance that is good to keep you enjoying this phone, you only realize that you are not able to load so many apps on the phone.
This is due to two possible factors, the first one being that this phone runs on the Kitkat OS which may not be in a position to perform as other latest operating systems. You get an internal storage capacity of 8GB which is somehow good when it comes to storage of your favorite documents. Music and images don’t occupy a large capacity, so you expect to have so much of that. It will actually be long before you have the need of buying a memory card. Alternatively, you can upload some images to Google Drive which is a better alternative for saving most documents that are important to you.
Tecno Y4 is yet another phone that gives you the Android experience with less that Ksh 10,000. We know that Kenyans love phones that can give them the very best at the least amount of money. You can get Tecno Y4 with as low as Ksh 7, 500 which makes it an amazing deal. A glance at this phone reveals a phone that has a Nokia Lumia-like design. You know how most of the Nokia Lumia body’s have a smooth plastic body; this is the same thing you get with this phone.
The plastic body is really awesome and quite comfortable in your hands. This is the phone that makes you feel like you are holding something quite valuable on your hands. Plus it is a colorful phone which gives it so much life to it; it is not the old boring smartphone that you get which has a boring look. I think that it is quite stylish for anyone irrespective of the age. The performance is really good as it comes with a 4.4 Kitkat version which might not be the most recent but which gives you access to some good apps such as what’s app.
It is powered by a 1GHz Dual Core processor and a 1GB RAM. Considering that this phone has not been created to manage and handle some large apps, you don’t expect it to constantly hang. The RAM is in a position to handle all the multitasking work that you may want to subject the phone to. You get an 8GB internal storage capacity which I consider sufficient whenever you want to store your documents.
If you want to have more, you can possibly buy a micro SD card which will give you more room to store anything that may not fit in the 8GB storage. The camera does not give you a lot that you may want to talk about but it is considerably goods, it comes with a 5MP rear camera which takes good images under proper lighting. At least this is a dual sim phone; thus you will get the opportunity to enjoy more than one service provider on the same platform. You should consider getting this phone in case you want something to take you by before you can afford some of the expensive phones.
Tecno W4 offers the best deals on phones that are below 10K, this is because you are able to get a great deal and a great phone. It is not every day that you come across a good phone that costs you less. You may want to read through this carefully as you may be getting one as soon as you get to see what this phone comes with. First of all, this phone does not present to you the same old boring specs that most of the affordable phones come with; on the contrary, it is the first Tecno phone in Kenya to run on the 6.0 Android OS.
This must have put a smile on your face. It only costs an average price of 9K in most of the shops in Kenya. With the Marshmallow OS, you get a phone with really cool features in terms of security, and the UI is quite amazing. Basically, it is an affordable phone that gives you almost everything that you can get in high-end phones. Used to the 8GB storage? At least not with this phone. Tecno W4 comes with a 16GB internal storage capacity which I think is quite large to store all your favorite data without limiting you. What I love about this phone is the fact that you can even save a whole series and you will still be left with sufficient space for other documents that you may want to save.
Kenyans love a phone with dual sim capability, and this is definitely the phone to give you such kind of pleasure. With a dual sim phone, you get to enjoy the benefits of more than one service provider. With such a phone, you get to roll with the service provider that gives you the very best in terms of calls and data bundles. This phone gives you an edge in decision making concerning the service provider that you may want to enjoy the services from.
The camera gives you an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera which gives you decent images. The only limitation that you will get with this phone is the fact that you may not get good images when the lighting is not so good. From the look of things, this is probably one of the best under 10K phones that you may ever get.
Tecno has been doing it big in the past few years. I would not be surprised to find out that big brands such as Samsung are somehow scared of the potential that Tecno has in the market. Any product should have a specific market target, and this is the main issues that either causes a product to make it or not make it. Tecno found a niche that had not been occupied and it occupied that niche giving people phones that are as low as Ksh 5, 000.
In a time when getting a good smartphone could cost you approximately Ksh 20, 000 Tecno made it possible for people to access smartphones at low prices. Now Tecno is battling with some of the biggest brands in the world as it has continually been improving the consequent models making them have less flaws and much of perfection. The reason as to why you will get a phone at such an affordable amount of money is because Tecno well knows the market and will give you what you want at what you have.
