When you are looking for a low-cost phone in Kenya, you have to keep in mind the fact that the manufacturers are going to cut some features to make a phone cheap.  You are not going to get the features found in high end phones such as the Huawei Mate 9, Samsung Galaxy S8, iPhone 7, Sony Xperia Z5 Premium, BlackBerry KEYone and other expensive phones.

More and more smartphones will definitely be introduced into the Kenyan market this year. If you can’t afford to pay more or you simply don’t want to spend more than Ksh 10K on a phone, we hope this list is helpful. There are many other awesome smartphones in Kenya under 10k that you can buy this month. When creating this list, we considered a lot of things, from brand reputation and price to camera quality and battery life.
