Xiaomi phones are the 4th most sold brand globally (after Samsung, Huawei, and iPhone). But how can a newcomer in the game be growing in popularity so fast, you may be wondering? Well, Xiaomi decided to give their clients flagship features at the price of a budget phone.

Unlike some smartphones in Kenya with lots of features packed on low-quality hardware, Xiaomi invests in both software and hardware. The result is a premium phone at a discount.

Enough with praising Xiaomi.

Here are the 10 best Xiaomi phones in Kenya you can buy today at irresistible discounts. 

While I’ve tried to rank them from the cheapest to the most expensive, these prices do fluctuate. However, most of them will cost you less than Ksh. 30,000.

For less than 10k, you get a phone rocking a SnapDragon Processor, 4000mAh (with fast-charging), and a camera that shoots FHD videos (both front and back).

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 (32GB)

Note 8 is the Xiaomi Smartphone you go for when you want a taste of professional photography without breaking the bank. I mean, which other smartphones can shoot 4k videos and still sell at about 15k? That’s how I’d introduce Redmi Note 8.

With a reliable midrange Snapdragon chip, Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 packs specs that other manufacturers will charge an arm and a leg for.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 (128 GB)

Xiaomi Redmi Note 8, as is the case with most Xiaomi Smartphones, comes in different storage configurations. This helps Xiaomi to avail a phone to various customers depending on what they can afford.

Technically, what we have here is the same phone with a bigger RAM and ROM.

Assuming your budget can allow it, would you survive with a 32GB storage (forcing you to buy a Memory Card) rather than go for 128GB? I’d go for 128GB and hope you do so too. Especially, when Xiaomi is giving you the phone at an irresistible discount.

Last Words…

I strongly recommend you buy Xiaomi phones in Kenya exclusively from Xiaomi Official Store. The benefits of doing so include a manufacturer warranty and the fact that they’ll only sell you a global version.

But, assuming you didn’t get the Xiaomi phone you are looking for, I suggest you visit reputable shops like Avechi and Phone Place Kenya. They’ll have what you need at a competitive price most of the time.  

 Lastly, don’t accept a phone with different specs from what you ordered. In case of wrong delivery, return the order and ask for replacement or refund. Otherwise, feel free to share your experience with Xiaomi Smartphones via the comment box. 

…And don’t forget to share this post with friends if you find it useful.
