best phones under 20000 naira

In this content, I’d be presenting you a total of 10 Android smartphones you can consider, as of 3rd quarter 2020.

However, you shouldn’t expect much from these devices. For instance, none of these products run the Android 10 OS.

In fact, we have a few which run an operating system as old as the Android 5. So before thinking of buying a N20,000 smartphone, be sure you’re really okay with not getting an amazing product.

These are the lowest end of budgeted smartphones. There are also budget smartphones that sells for around N100,000 Naira and even more.

Best Phones Under 20000 Naira

  • Anica P33 Pro: N13,300
  • Blackview A20: N12,000
  • Coolpad E2: N20,000
  • Homtom HT16: N17,100
  • iMose GiDi Plus: N17,000
  • iTel A16 Plus: N18,950
  • iTel A33: N19,700
  • Oe X27: N16,000
  • Swiss SD 510: N16,500
  • XGODY A50: N20,000

1.) Anica P33 Pro: N13,300

  • MediaTek MTK6580 chipset: Quad-core Processor [1.30 GHz] + Mali GPU
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 4 GB internal storage [Expansion support]
  • Android 5.1 OS
  • 2,000 mAh battery
  • 5.80-inch IPS Display [480 x 854 pixels]
  • 2G and 3G support [Dual SIM]

Seeing the specs and features summary of this phone, a lot of readers might feel this product is just way too poor.

But before you toss it aside, I’d suggest that you look at two things about this device: its design and its price.

When people use a phone, they always appreciate it when their phones feature nice designs.

But unfortunately, a lot of low-end products don’t do well in this aspect. However, when it comes to the design of the Anica P33 Pro, it’s way more impressive than most other products in its category.

In other words, if you don’t have a lot of cash to spend, but strongly desire a phone that wouldn’t look like a typical N20,000 device, you should give this device some serious consideration.

Another thing you might appreciate about this item is that owning it would cost you less than N14,000.

But after buying a micro SD card [which is mandatory, if you want a lot of apps on the phone], the total cost of the phone might rise up to N16,000.

The Anica P33 Pro is not a product widely available.

So if you plan getting it, you might be unable to get it in stores around you. e-Commerce platforms like Jumia are rather the places where you can find items like this.

2.) Blackview A20: N12,000

  • MediaTek MTK6580 chipset: Quad-core Processor [1.30 GHz] + Mali-400 MP2 GPU
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 8 GB internal storage [Expansion support]
  • Android 8 Oreo [Go edition] OS
  • 2,500 mAh battery
  • 5.50-inch IPS Display [480 x 960 pixels]
  • 2G and 3G support [Dual SIM]
  • 2 MP front camera; 5 MP + 0.3 MP rear camera

The Blackview A20 is another item I would confidently recommend someone interested in a N20,000 device. This device is like the Anica P33 Pro.

But unlike the Anica P33 Pro which sacrifices almost every other thing for a nice design, the Blackview A20 tries to balance everything, and still sell for about N12,000.

In fact, it’s probably what I’d consider the best value for money, among all the items in this content.

3.) Coolpad E2: N20,000

  • Qualcomm MSM8909 chipset: Quad-core Processor [1.10 GHz] + Adreno 304 GPU
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 16 GB internal storage [Expansion support]
  • Android 7.1 OS
  • 2,500 mAh battery
  • 5.00-inch IPS Display [720 x 1,280 pixels]
  • 2G, 3G and 4G support [Dual SIM]
  • 5 MP front camera; 8 MP rear camera

If you plan using a N20,000 as your main smartphone, then the Coolpad E2 is an item you should give special attention. This device is another great value for money.

The manufacturer tried to deliver excellently in all aspects, while also ensuring the phone isn’t too expensive.

One of the things I most appreciate about this product is its support for 4G, a thing most people would love.

4.) Homtom HT16: N17,100

  • MediaTek MT6580 chipset: Quad-core Processor [1.30 GHz] + Mali-400 MP GPU
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 GB internal storage [Expansion support: up to 64 GB]
  • Android 6.0 OS
  • 3,000 mAh battery
  • 5.00-inch IPS Display [720 x 1,280 pixels]
  • 2G, 3G and 4G support [Dual SIM]
  • 2 MP front camera; 8 MP rear camera

If you’d love something which is almost as good as the Coolpad E2, and you’d also appreciate something a little cheaper, then a product like the is what you should consider.

One of the things I most appreciate is that despite it being quite cheaper than the Coolpad E2, it still comes with 4G support.

However, one thing you should understand is that this product has been around for a while, and it isn’t certain if it would be available for a lot longer.

So if you love the product, now is the time to buy it, before it is out of stock.

5.) iMose GiDi Plus: N17,000

  • MediaTek MT6580 chipset: Quad-core Processor [1.30 GHz] + Mali-400 MP GPU
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 GB internal storage [Expansion support]
  • Android 9.0 OS
  • 3,000 mAh battery
  • 5.50-inch IPS Display [720 x 1,280 pixels]
  • 2G and 3G support [Dual SIM]
  • 8 MP front camera; 16 MP rear camera
  • Fingerprint scanner

The iMose GiDi Plus falls in the category of the Coolpad E2 and the Homtom HT16.

But this product seems to be targeted at people who love pictures greatly, but can’t afford spending over N20,000 on a phone.

The phone comes with an 8 MP front camera and a 16 MP rear camera.

These cameras are quite okay, although you shouldn’t expect them to be as impressive as those of mid-range and high-end smartphones.

I also appreciate the fact that this phone also comes with the Android 9.0 OS. Only a few low-end devices can boast of this.

So if using an Android 9 OS matters a lot, you might have to give this item some special consideration.

6.) iTel A16 Plus: N18,950

  • Spreadtrum SC7731E chipset: Quad-core Processor [1.30 GHz] + Mali-T820 MP1 GPU
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 GB internal storage [Expansion support]
  • Android 8.1 OS
  • 2,050 mAh battery
  • 5.00-inch IPS Display [480 x 854 pixels]
  • 2G and 3G support [Dual SIM]
  • 0.3 MP front camera; 5 MP rear camera

The iTel A16 Plus is also a product I deem fit to be part of an article like this. This device, to me, is quite overpriced.

But the reason why I wouldn’t ask you to avoid it, is because iTel is a well-established brand.

In other words, when you buy an iTel product, be assured the phone wouldn’t develop problems shortly after buying it.

This is however not meant to mean that no other brand in this content is dependable, it’s just that we aren’t so sure about how dependable their products are.

In short, if you want a low-end phone and you’re not willing to take any risk [even though you might get a better offer], then the iTel A16 Plus is one of those items I’d ask you to consider.

7.) iTel A33: N19,700

  • MediaTek MT6580 chipset: Quad-core Processor [1.30 GHz] + Mali-400 MP2 GPU
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 16 GB internal storage [Expansion support]
  • Android 8.1 OS
  • 2,200 mAh battery
  • 5.00-inch IPS Display [480 x 854 pixels]
  • 2G and 3G support [Dual SIM]
  • 2 MP front camera; 5 MP rear camera

The iTel A33 is a lot like the A16 Plus. The major differences between the two phones, lies in their storage capacity and battery.

The A33 comes with two times the storage of the A16 Plus, and approximately two times the battery capacity of the former.

In short, the iTel A33 is what I’d ordinarily recommend, between the two. However, if saving about N1,000 matters a lot, then you should probably consider the A16 Plus.

8.) Oe X27: N16,000

  • MediaTek MTK6592 chipset: Octa-core Processor [1.70 – 2.00 GHz] + Mali-450 MP4 GPU
  • 512 MB RAM
  • 4 GB internal storage [Expansion support]
  • Android 8 OS
  • 4,000 mAh battery
  • 5.00-inch IPS Display [480 x 854 pixels]
  • 2G and 3G support [Dual SIM]

For someone like me, when buying a device, regardless of whether it’s a low-end, mid-range, or high-end product, design matters a lot.

So if you’re also like that and also strongly demand that your device is highly-responsive, then the Oe X27 is what you should be looking at.

This smartphone comes with an octa-core processor, with the cores capable of being clocked as high as 2.00 GHz.

You should however understand that you’d have to pay some price for the design and processing speed — the phone features just 4 GB of internal storage.

9.) Swiss SD 510: N16,500

  • MediaTek MT6580 chipset: Quad-core Processor [1.30 GHz] + Mali GPU
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 8 GB internal storage [Expansion support]
  • Android 7 OS
  • 2,000 mAh battery
  • 5.00-inch IPS Display [480 x 854 pixels]
  • 2G and 3G support [Dual SIM]
  • 2 MP front camera; 5 MP rear camera

The Swiss SD 510 is another product you can consider. There is nothing special about it.

I only included it in this content, for the sake of those who’d like as many options as possible.

10.) XGODY A50: N20,000

  • MediaTek MTK6580 chipset: Quad-core Processor [1.30 GHz] + Mali-400 MP2 GPU
  • 1 GB RAM
  • 4 GB internal storage [Expansion support]
  • Android 9 OS
  • 3,000 mAh battery
  • 6.50-inch IPS Display [540 x 1,200 pixels]
  • 2G and 3G support [Dual SIM]
  • 5 MP front camera; 5 MP rear camera

The XGODY A50 is a lot like the Anica P33 Pro.

This is one of those low-end smartphones which helps to make people think you’re using a mid-range device.

In terms of appearance, the device scores excellently, but keep in mind that you’d have to pay some price in the aspect of storage.

It is also worthwhile stating that a product like the XGODY A50 is not something you’d ordinarily find in Nigeria.

To lay your hands on a build of this product, you might have to consider shopping on e-Commerce platforms like AliExpress and Wish.

Final Note

All phones in this content, are truly the best N20,000 phones you can get as a Nigerian. In other words, after reading this content, you don’t have to look for some other content.

It is also important stating that most of the items presented in this content would be difficult to get in physical stores around you.

So if you plan getting any of them, you’d have to buy it on an e-Commerce platform.

Most of the itel smartphones are targeted at this market.
