It stumps me how most Nigerians are so much engrossed in obsessing over high-end Android devices that they cannot afford while overlooking cheaper devices that are equally as functional and durable. I mean devices like Lenovo Android smartphones.
In case you didn’t know, Lenovo smartphones are just as popular outside Nigeria as any other popular brand you can think of. In fact, the company recently acquired Motorola. (Does that speak volume?)
You also have Lenovo, another popular brand that is widely known for powerful batteries that could last for days.
Did you just wonder if there are Lenovo devices in Nigeria? Well, there are. Many of them. And here are some popular ones you should start considering.
Lenovo A516 (N20,900)
Running on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, this remarkable slim and light dual-SIM smartphone sports a 4.5-inch display. As expected, it flaunts two cameras: a 5MP rear camera and a 0.3MP front camera. It’s powered by a 1.3GHz dual core processor, and it packs 512MB of RAM with 4GB of internal memory (expandable). Under its hood lies a 2,000mAh battery.
Lenovo A369i (N13,900)
This 4-incher also runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and it’s powered by a 1.3GHz dual core processor that works in conjunction with the device’s 512MB RAM and expandable 4GB in-built memory. The Lenovo A369i has only one camera, a rear-facing 2MP fixed-focus camera. Battery capacity is 1,500mAh.
Lenovo A316i (N10,900)
Though it’s the cheapest Lenovo smartphone you’ll find in the Nigerian market at the moment, it doesn’t compromise on aspects that matter. Though it lacks a front-facing camera, it flaunts a rear-facing 2MP camera. Also sporting a 4-inch display, this device runs on a 1.3GHz dual core processor. It has 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory. And it’s powered by a 1,300mAh Li-Ion battery.
Lenovo A680 (N22,800)
Flaunting a 5-inch display and sporting two cameras (5MP rear camera and 0.3MP front camera), the A680 runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and is powered by 1.3GHz quad core processor. The device has 1GB of RAM and 4GB on internal memory. The battery capacity is 2,000mAh.
Lenovo S650 (N34,700)
The most expensive in the list, this slim and stylish device is packed with features that justify its price. It runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and is powered by a 1.4GHz quad core processor. It flaunts a 4.7-inch display and has two cameras (8MP rear camera and 0.3MP front camera). 1GB RAM, 8GB internal memory, and 2,000mAh battery also make the list of the device’s features.
On a final note, bear in mind that all the smartphones on our list run heavy apps with absolute ease–their low RAM rating notwithstanding. And they take sharper pictures than some devices with bigger camera specs. We could go on and on. Just buy a Lenovo Android smartphone, and you won’t be disappointed.
