A good smartphone should have at least 4 inch display and Android 4, and support 3G and Wi-Fi connections. The most challenging task buying mobile phones in Uganda is to find real prices of brand new original phones. New smart phones of Samsung, LG, Blackberry or Nokia prices begin at 350 000Ush. The cheaper one does not necessarily are fakes; it may be already used or just unboxed.

What reveals that the new cell phone is fake is falsely bear brand name of popular manufacturers. Fake mobile gadgets are very similar to the original ones, but they operate not that qualitatively. So, let’s discuss about cheap Android and Windows smartphones sold in Kampala and other Ugandan cities and compare those mobile gadgets prices.

Al these phones I’m going to mention can be easily found in Kampala and other cities in Uganda at official stores, retailers or being sold by individual people at various marketplaces.

Huawei Y300 – Price 400 000Ush



Huawei Y300 phone is a good but simple smart phone that has been around for quite long. The design is really bold and aggressive, finishing is acceptable, internet browsing is classic, display is fine and the camera too won't disappoint you for the price. Such a screen makes the Huawei Ascend Y300 a direct rival for phones like the Samsung Galaxy Ace 3 and Sony Xperia U. There are some nice little tweaks, though. The rear battery cover is rubberised and has a texture of raised lines, making it much gripper than most. This cell phone is recommended to you if you desire something decent at a lower price.
