In recent times, the prices of phones in Nigeria has tripled from what it used to be. While greed and manipulation of prices cannot be overlooked, the exchange rate has also played a huge role. A lot of business owners are quick to point at the exchange rate when you complain about phones. I'm sure you are used to hearing that.

Despite all these obstacles, you can still get a good phone without breaking the bank. I put together a list of good phones you can buy for at least N60,000. 

1. Tecno Spark 5 PRO

Memory: 128GB ROM + 4GB RAM 

The Tecno Spark 5 Pro offers more space to store your favourites applications, less worry of frequent clean-up to get more storage. 4GB RAM provides stable and fluent performance.

Battery: 5000mAh 

With its 5000mAh powerful battery and smart power-saving system, the Techno Spark 5 keep you charged up for daily work and life.

Size: 6.6 Inch HD+ Dot-in Display

The Tecno Spark 5 gives a wider and brighter visual experience. Optimized overall dimensions and 3D body radian provide a comfortable handhold. High resolution and 90.2% perfect screen ratio contribute to a more wonderful and much broader full view experience.

Network Quality: 4G VoLTE

VoLTE stands for voice over LTE and it's more or less exactly what it says on the tin. It's voice calls over a 4G LTE network, rather than the 2G or 3G connections that are usually used. This means that your Tecno Spark 5 covers your WhatsApp call, Zoom meetings etc. 

Camera Quality

Loaded with an outstanding camera sensitive elements, F/1.8 big aperture and brand-new algorithm AI Camera 3.0, the 16MP main camera enables highly clear and more natural photos whether it is daytime or night. With an 8x digital zoom capability on captured images, great details can be seen clearly. Quad rear flash effectively solves the problem of dim photos in dark environments. Every shot taken by SPARK 5 Pro would be clear, bright and beautiful enough.

Loaded with an 8MP Al Selfie Camera, SPARK 5 Pro is always ready to capture your glamorous moments. With dual front flash and Portrait HDR, a brighter and charming selfie in a low light scenario is easier to take. A fully developed facial algorithm saving your time for retouches, offering a smoother and funnier selfie experience.

The extreme close-up shot clearly shows more details and reveals the beauty of the smaller things around you. When taking a selfie with family or friends, adjust the angle of the phone according to the screen instructions, the camera would capture everyone and give you a brilliant wide selfie photo.
