The Best 5 Affordable Android Phones In Nigeria With Great Specifications in 2017

Hello Nigeria! Let’s look at the recent affordable and high-quality phones available in Nigeria, updated till the month of June, 2017. This post would be restricted to android phones that are affordable right now in Nigeria, cos that is what everyone needs! The list is not long, as I have selected the best carefully:



Infinix Hot 4 X557 is not new to many. The Infinix Hot 4 is gradually becoming a brand inside the Infinix brand in Nigeria, as there are 3 variants of the phone:

-Infinix Hot 4 Lite

-Infinix Hot 4

-Infinix Hot 4 Pro.

I have personally used   both the Infinix Hot 4 and the Infinix Hot 4 Pro (Currently using) and I say it has not been a bad choice. Many times I am being asked about which of the 3 variants to buy, and my answer has always been ‘Buy either Hot 4 or Hot 4 Pro’. I regard the Infinix Hot 4 lite as a mistake, cos I have had the chance of surveying the phone from a friend, and I noticed the following:

-The camera sucks- both front and back cam are not really sharp

-It has no fingerprint.

(All these complaints are about the Infinix Hot 4 Lite oly, so I am not mentioning Infinix Hot 4 lite in this article.

So, I am talking about the Infinix Hot 4 here as number one. It ranges between #40,000 to #45,000 where # is the Nigerian Naira. Here is a screenshot from Microstation of the Infinix Hot 4:Best Affordable Phones to buy in Nigeria 2017 androidHere are key features of The Infinix Hot 4:
