Are you looking for a cheap affordable smartphone to buy in Nigeria, i guess your answer is yes, i will show you an alternative way to buy a smartphone that can get the job done without any need to empty your pockets.

I decided to write about how and where to buy cheap New or Used phones in Nigeria because i noticed that not everyone can even afford a Techno smartphone because the prices are no longer the same but i guess you know why mobile phone price changed in Nigeria.

Phone price doubled because of dollar exchange rate in Nigeria and you know Nigerians don't produce phones but mostly buy them with dollar to sell in Naira that is why the price of phone moved upwards, the exchange rate is between 490-500 Naira per 1 Dollar.

Now you knew why mobile phone suddenly become so expensive even a smartphone that used to be under 20K is now more then 30k but i have another alternative on how and where you can buy smartphone cheap.

On checking Nigerian top online smartphone sellers recently i was surprise to see that price of every phone has almost doubled but i guess you know why the price of cell phones has become expensive which i told you the reason on the third paragraph.

Back to business, get ready to learn how to buy a good phone that can serve you well both new and fairly used smartphones.

Goto Jiji.ng
Jiji is one of the most popular free classifieds ads listing in Nigeria where everyone can buy and sell their used stuffs such as Mobile phones, Computers, Car, Electronics and more.

How can i Buy Cheap Phones

Jiji.ng is not the only website you can buy new and used things but i use them as example because i use them too,

First to browse the full list of new and used smartphone from people around you and Nigeria entirely simple visit them then click on Mobile Phones and Tablets, then select mobile phones and you will see the list of both new and old phone you can buy with small amount of money, you can take a look at this image below.


How to get a seller close to you
You need to find someone closer to you to buy from and the only way to do that is setting your desired search location which you can for example you can select Lagos your your state of residence and then your local govt area as you can see below.

This is important for an easy transaction process between you the buyer and the seller.

Why are they selling it cheap
As a wise think person you must be wondering how these people manage to sell their own phones that cheap but let me tell you some reasons.

=> Urgently in Need of money

Some people are selling their phone cheap online because they i have an urgent need of money and the only asset on them that moment is their phone and they are willing to let it go for any amount that can solve their problem.

=> Need an Upgrade
Permit me to tell you that all fingers are not equal because while you are looking for food to eat some people are looking to buy 10 million naira cars and while you are looking for cheap phones to buy other people might be looking to upgrade to more expensive Iphone and Samsung phones and they can sell the one they have at any amount just to upgrade to the latest smartphone in town.

=> They got the phone as a gift
Some still don't know the value of the smartphone they want to sell because they got it as a gift from family or friends and are willing to sell for any amount.

=> Quick Sell
Another reason why some sell their phone cheap is to be able to find buyer as soon as possible because if you want to sale at the original price then be ready to wait much longer since there are nothing to attract the buyer especially when it comes to price.

Security Warning!
Buying something from someone you don't know might be dangerous and you must follow this steps to protect yourself against any form of scam.
