About a month ago, I wanted to change my phone and was so particular about the specs of the phone I wanted, so I headed to Konga and Jumia to see what they have to offer me. To make it clear, I can’t remember the last time I entered a shop to buy a phone for myself, all my devices are purchased online.
Talking about my specifications, I was actually looking for a 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM phone and I was prepared to pay over N30,000.00 for the device I choose. I went through all the sites and was lost for choices. I saw a lot of brands and with tantalising specs. The one that appeals to me most was the Lenovo Vibe 1 Pm that was on Special Sales for N30,000.00
As I was about clicking the Add To Cart Button, I decided to check some other deals to see if I will get another sweet offer and I saw this phone on sale and decided to check it out, what I saw was unbelievable! Unbelievable Specs and Unbelievable Price!
The phone, Mi-Tribe A500, happens to be a 2GB RAM and 16GB ROM device and it goes on sale for less than N20,000.00! The camera specs too was also good for me, 8MP back camera and 5MP Front Camera, I was shocked and I decided to probe further. Check the specs below for yourself:
- 5 Inch IPS HD Display
- 16GB Internal Memory, 2GB RAM
- 8MP Primary Camera, 2MP Front Camera
- 1.3 GHz Quad Core Processor
- Android 5.1 Lollipop
- 2300mAh Battery
- Dual Sim (1 Mini + 1 Micro), Dual Standby
- 3G and Wifi Enabled
- FM Radio
All the above specs matched my taste except for the battery but I was not to be deterred. I immediately added it to my cart and also looked for a powerbank to support it. The interesting thing is that even with the powerbank and delivery(same day) I didn’t spend up to N25,000.00, meaning I still had a change of N5,000+ left from my initial budget. 🙂
I used the phone at the launch of Tecno’s Camon C9 and the picture above is one of the numerous images I took on that day.
If you are not a freak for brand name, if all you desire is the functionality of your device, then this phone has all you need and it will SAVE you enough money!
You will surely thank us soon!
