Nigeria Smartphone Market: 9 Smartphones under N40000 Budget in 2018



Here’s a list of mobile gadgets below N40,000 in Nigeria. Most on this list will be base on specs and how they can help fulfil your day to day activities such as going online etc.

But before we grace this list, let’s evaluate the Mobile Phone distribution market in Nigeria and how the growth trends have massively increased.

A preliminary data from the International Data Corporation, IDC’s Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, revealed that smartphone vendors shipped a total of 342 million units during the second quarter of 2018, 2Q18, showing a 1.8 per cent decline when compared to the 348.2 million units shipped in the second quarter of 2017.

Nairobi – Africa’s mobile phone market declined 2.1% quarter on quarter (QoQ) in Q3 2018 according to the latest figures announced today by International Data Corporation (IDC). The global technology research and consulting firm newly released Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker shows overall shipments for the quarter totalled 52.6 million units, with feature phone shipments falling 2.7% QoQ and smartphone shipments declining 1.3% over the same period.

Transsion brands (Tecno, Infinix, and Itel) led the feature phone space in Q3 2018, with a combined unit share of 58.2%. Nokia was next in line with 11.7% share. Transsion, Samsung, and Huawei dominated the smartphone space with respective unit shares of 34.9%, 21.7%, and 10.2%. However, in value terms, Samsung led the smartphone market with 37.2% share, followed by Transsion (21.0%) and Huawei (13.0%).

There were differing fortunes in the region’s three major markets, with Nigeria suffering a heavy 11.6% QoQ decline in mobile phone shipments, while South Africa and Kenya saw respective QoQ growth of 8.5% and 7.9% in Q3 2018. According to the International Data Corporation (IDC).

With this market share report amongst the standing competing brands, it’s then easier to say our financial economy call for Nigerians or Africa at large to patronize this low budget gadget. However, those who got the ball rolling saw the market in Africa on time and penetrated before most of them came. In this post, we are going to reveal the best budget Smartphones under N40,000 in Nigeria and where to buy them.

Lenovo is still a good choice in the telecom business. As a matter of fact, they still produce quality gadgets in the market under low budget.

Spark with 6-Inch HD, 1.3 GHz Quad Core really has low performance in the tech space but in a normal convention where you are looking for a small smartphone under a low budget, this is a good choice.

It also has 1GB RAM and 16GB ROM which I don’t really like though. I suggest it should have been at least 2GB RAM.
