5 Smartphone Deals to Take Advantage of in Safaricom “Mambo Ni Digital” Sale


If there’s one thing Safaricom does and does really well is their in-store promotions. Starting from Safaricom’s Open Day to their Bonga Points offers and this time, the telco is back at it with a promotion aimed at pushing its subscribers to the digital life, with a special focus on 4G devices.

As from September 25th to September 30th, Safaricom is running a promotion on select smartphones that you can grab at their Safaricom Shop brand stores. Out of all the deals on offer this time around, here are five that you should not pass you by:

1Moto C+ at Ksh.9,999

The Lenovo Moto C+ is an entry-level device that comes with a decent 5-inch HD display, 8MP and 2MP main and selfie camera combination, 2GB RAM and a massive 4000mAh battery. The Moto C+ runs on Android 7.0 Nougat and is powered by a MediaTek MT6737 Processor with 16GB of internal storage.

The Moto C+ is a worthy choice for anyone looking to get their hands on an affordable 4G device that will last you two full days on a single charge, look fairly attractive and not break your bank while at it.

2Moto E4+ at Ksh.16,999

Another great deal on a decent Lenovo Moto device. The Moto E4+ comes with a 5.5-inch HD display protected by Gorilla Glass 3, 13MP main camera, 5MP selfie shooter, 3GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, a MediaTek MT6737 Processor, a fingerprint reader, Android 7.0 Nougat, 4G support, a massive 5000mAh battery and a sleek design.

3TECNO Phantom 6 at Ksh.20,999

The Phantom 6 is TECNO’s flagship device for the year 2016, if not for any other reason, buy the Phantom 6 just for its looks. The device is slim, sleek and a head-turner. The TECNO Phantom 6 has a 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED display, 13MP and 5MP dual cameras at the back for refocusing and blurred backgrounds, an 83-degree wide-angle 8MP selfie camera, USB-C charging port, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, Android 6.0 Marshmallow and a 2700mAh battery.

The one caveat of the device is that it sacrificed the fingerprint reader for an eye scanner that does not work that well but for that price, I would overlook this.

4Huawei GR3 (2017) at Ksh.21,299

The Huawei GR3 (2017) comes with a great 5.2-inch Full HD display, 3GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, Android 7.0 with EMUI 5.0 on top, a fingerprint reader, an Octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 655 processor, 12MP camera with an 8MP front-facing shooter all kept going by a 3000mAh battery. The GR3 (2017) does not compromise on looks and build quality and the camera is one to desire, for a device at this level.

5Moto G5+ at Ksh.26,999

Yes, Moto devices have dominated this list but that is how good the deals on them are. The G5+ is a great mid-range device offering 5.2-inches of Full HD goodness protected by Gorilla Glass 3, 4GB RAM, Snapdragon 625, Android 7.0 Nougat, awaiting Android 8.0 Oreo update, fingerprint reader, 12MP main camera, 5MP secondary camera and a 3000mAh battery.

This could be a hard sell but if you love stock android, great design and the uniqueness of being the few Kenyans who own a Moto device, then this one is for you.

All these devices come with 1GB free data.


  1. good deals indeed with exception of the phantom. My best pick is moto e4+, people looking for a good device at that price range should really consider this smartphone
