Vkworld F1 Price in Kenya

Vkworld F1 Specifications
The phone I am reviewing is white in colour and the brand is VKworld model F1.
The operating system is Android 5.1. This is not the latest operating system. It is an average operating system which has an average speed and performance. Honestly, if you are an average type of person doing little stuff with your phone, then this is fit for you but if you are the type of person who considers high speed and multitasking then consider having more cash for a cooler phone.
The phone CPU is MTK6580 quad-core CPU,1.3GHz
The RAM is 1GB. You will agree with me that most phones are using 1GB RAM and most people praise them. The 1 GB serves them so well but even as it serves them well, the phone manufacturers are on with new flagships.
There are flagship phones with over 6GB RAM. include Asus Zenfone, One Plus 3, Vivo Xplay5 Elite, One Plus 6, RealMe 1, and Samsung Galaxy A8Plus among others.
The painful fact for you is that the higher the RAM the high the cost.
Therefore it is prudent to have the Vkworld F1 that serves you well at a very cheap price instead of lacking a phone at all.
The other phones with 1GB RAM available in the market include Samsung Galaxy 12 Core, Samsung Galaxy On5, Samsung Galaxy J5, and Samsung Galaxy J2 (2018). These are not the only phone which is using RAM of 1GB, there are others not capture in this article.
I want to assure you that at Ksh 5, 999, you will get one of the best budget phones from VKworld brand. Hesitate not at all but take the opportunity to buy one.
ROM of Vkworld F1 is 8 GB. The amount of storage is considerate compared to the pice. In the market, there are many smartphones which have over 32 GB ROM. Examples include Lenovo K8 Note (32 GB), Honor 9i (64 GB), Oppo F3 plus (64GB), and Gionee A1 plus.
All the phones with 32GB ROM and above are too expensive for a low-income earner. that is why I strongly recommend that you go for this cheap phone with the 8 GB ROM.
