It is an extreme oldness to just ascertain at this point that the country is in recession, prices of almost everything has skyrocketed and minimum wage is not smiling at all. Well, still yet, as long as we survive, and we still crave for what we crave for, I’m guessing we can’t do without smartphones.

And there comes this period of recession when there is not enough money to buy your desired phones. Don’t worry, we got you covered as we bring you a list of smartphones you can get currently for less than N40,000 in Nigerian naira.

1. Tecno L8 Lite – N38,000

It has a 5.0 inch display, with a camera quality of 8 MP and 5 MP on its rear and front facing camera respectively. I can tell you that the phone is lit, because I’ve handled (handling) one, ND most importantly, it is priced below N40,000.
This one too, is a lite version. It is much more affordable as it features a price below N40,000, while it offers just about the same specs as the Hot4 with the main differences being that the Lite variant drops the fingerprint sensor and offers half the memory with only 1GB RAM.
