Dlight has invaded another section of the market in Kenya with lipa pole pole smartphones.
The pay-go solar home systems giant is now appealing to thousands of Kenyans who cannot afford new 4G smartphones.
The arrangement is similar to the pay-go solar home systems model, where customers acquire the gadget and pay in easy daily installments.
The company has embarked on a serious mission to cash in on the increasing demand for 3G and 4G smartphones in Kenya.
It is for this reason that the new Dlight M200 has bumped up features compared to its immediate predecessor, Dlight M100.
Dlight M200 Smartphone Price
Dlight sells smartphones both on cash and installments terms.
If you would like to get the Dlight M200 Smartphone in cash, you are expected to part with Ksh. 14,000
However, you can still pay a deposit of Ksh. 2,350 and pay the balance in easy daily installments of Ksh. 50, which translates to Ksh. 350 per week.
If you opt for the installment plan, you will have paid a total of Ksh. 14,000 at the end of the loan period (233 days).
Dlight M200 Smartphone Features
Having made tens of thousands of sales with the M100, Dlight decided to increase the screen size, double the internal memory and the RAM for the Paygo smartphones.
Let’s get started by discussing the 5 main selling features of the new Dlight M200 Smartphone.
5.5″ LCD Display
Every smartphone company is now aware that a larger display enhances the smartphone experience for people who like watching videos or playing games.
Dlight has therefore increased the display size for its smartphones.
The Dlight M200 smartphone has a bumped-up screen size of 5.5″, as compared to the 5.0 inches that came with its immediate predecessor, the Dlight M100.
The screen features a resolution of 720 x 960 pixels, not yet to full HD levels, but good enough for any normal smartphone usage.
Apart from the screen size and resolution, the Dlight Smartphone’s LCD Display also features impressive brightness levels, good for videos, games and making it readable under direct sunlight.
2,500mAh Removable Battery
A big percentage of smartphones flourishing in the Kenyan market have a battery rating of between 2,500 – 3,000mAh.
Such battery capacities serve normal android phone users just fine.
If you are looking for an affordable smartphone to browse the internet with the now available 4G speeds, you may need to add this to your list of choices.
1.3 GHz Quad-Core Processor
This MediaTek processor is good enough for the fast opening of mobile apps, streaming videos and smooth gameplay for games that are not so demanding.
If you are looking for a smartphone for heavy tasks such as photo/video editing, playing heavy games, you may need to look elsewhere.
Like most of their competitors, Dlight relies on MediaTek processors to power their devices, which are not as fast as Qualcomm, Snapdragon, and Huawei’s Kirin processor types.
8MP Rear Camera
The Dlight M200 Smartphone features an 8MP main camera with an LED flash and 5MP selfie camera.
If you are concerned about the quality of the videos captured, the smartphone has an output of up to 720pixels, with a frame rate of 15fps.
I would say that 8MP is good enough for any smartphone user.
Forget the hype surrounding smartphone cameras with more megapixels. Always remember that more megapixels alone will not give you better images.
If you are looking for a pocket-friendly smartphone in Kenya that has a good camera to capture all those memorable moments in pictures, consider adding the new Dlight M200 to your shopping cart.
2GB RAM, 16GB Internal Memory
Truth be told, 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM are no longer attractive values in the modern age.
To facilitate heavy tasks with ease, people are looking for smartphones with at least 2GB RAM.
Smartphone users have ever-growing needs, especially the need to accommodate more apps and games, some of which easily occupy more than 1GB of storage.
Of course, the new operating system requires some storage space. Plus the pre-installed apps, probably 1GB.
With 16GB, you are left with about 13GB for additional apps, games, videos, music and anything else you would wish to keep.
You can still get some additional memory, but remember that apps stored and run from memory cards tend to be slower.
