Safaricom Neon Kicka 5 is now on sale for only Ksh 3,499, here is what you need to know before buying

While everyone is busy talking about the latest and greatest from the industry leaders such as Samsung and Apple, Safaricom has introduced a phone that can literally be bought by anyone one as the budget is way down low. The latest Safaricom Neon Kicka 5 comes as a replacement of the now aged Kicka 4 that was unveiled way back in 2018. The phone as expected doesn’t offer much but has everything you’d need to communicate to your peers.

Although the price has slightly been adjusted upwards, Safaricom is targeting the same customer base it had in mind while launching the Kicka lineup. Customers will now part with Ksh 3,499 instead of Ksh 3,500 that Kicka 4 used to cost. For the amount, users will get modest internals such as a 4.95inch display pane, 8GB internal storage and 512MB RAM.

And what even makes it better, the device run on android operating system, meaning you’ll have access to Google services as well as being able to install applications from the Google Play store. While there’s so much that has been squeezed in the kicka 5, I wouldn’t base my reasons to purchase on that, it’s a device that should probably be used as a backup plan or for specific functions such as MPESA transactions and so forth.

Running applications on this phone also won’t be a walk in the park, although for the amount I’m sure most consumers already understand this. It’ll be interesting to see how the android OS runs as for most of us, less than 4GB RAM is a no-go zone unless of course its an iPhone.
