Should you buy the Cheapest 4G Smartphone from Airtel?

Currently, the latest low-range smartphone in Uganda is the Itel P38. By display, the device sports a waterdrop notch aboard a 6-inch Screen with lesser bezels to its design. On top of that, a non-removable 5000mAh battery powers the device.

But with a top flare of features making it a close to midrange release with a UGX 299,000 price tag, the Airtel 4G Smartphone then beats it by price and 4G support.

Likely, the base P38 supports 2G/3G straight out of the box. For 4G connectivity, a Pro version shines in check at a hyped price of UGX 399,000 contrary to UGX 200,000 for Airtel’s device offer.

Other releases like the Realme C3, Nokia C2/C3 equip 4G connectivity, but come at a higher price range between UGX 300,000 and UGX 350,000.

Hence, with the Airtel 4G Smartphone retailing for as low as UGX 200,000, it’s a better choice if you’re upgrading from a feature phone to the smartphone legion.

All in All, depending on your purchase intent, the Airtel 4G Smartphone could be you best choice by price. But if you closely consider having the latest catchy features, then roaming through a list of budget-friendly releases could land you a better smartphone.
