10 cheap android devices to buy in Nigeria, 2022

10 cheap android phones in Nigeria you can buy in 2022

cheap android phones are becoming ideal in Nigeria. Flagship phones are crazy expensive, and mid-range devices are still expensive for the average Nigerian, so most tend to buy a cheap android phone, or a pre-owned one, although I prefer the latter.

These android devices are built for those who aren’t really into their smartphones i.e people who don’t do much with their phone other than call, text, and social media.

I’ve gone hunting and I’ve found 10 cheap android phones under 70,000 Naira that you can buy, their basic specifications, and where you can purchase them, so go through them. (This post contains affiliate links and will earn us some money if you purchase through those links)
