Buyer’s Guide Verdict

The Smart M561M3 smart feature phone combines the low cost of a feature phone with more advanced functionality like mobile apps, Wi-Fi and GPS. We were looking forward to seeing 4G LTE on this model, but the manufacturer says a 4G model will follow soon.

This basic device allows you to install and use apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google Maps, and Google Assistant, among others. The operating system it runs is called KaiOS, the same OS that powers JioPhones.

$20 or NGN 8,000 (in Nigeria) is a fair price for a phone with these capabilities, so if you are looking for a dirt cheap 3G phone with good battery life to keep you connected, this is one.

It is manufactured in partnership with mobile network operators like MTN, Orange, and Vodafone, and can be purchased from their outlets in several countries around Africa and the Middle east. It is called MTN IKOSORA in Rwanda.

Note that the first SIM slot is expected to be locked to the partner network and the 2nd SIM slot open to all networks.
