We’re little over two weeks away from casting our ballots, and Facebook is getting ready for South Africa’s 2019 National Elections. The social network…
Update, March 2017: We’ve since published an updated list of affordable smartphones for WhatsApp — you can check it out over here.
Original article: Facebook did it.
It bought messaging app WhatsApp for US$19-billion. Doesn’t it know that it costs US$1 on iTunes?
But I digress.
For those out there who want the WhatsApp experience but cannot afford a top-of-the-range phone, there are thousands of cheaper (mostly Android) devices to choose from which will run this popular messaging app. I’ve listed eleven below.
All phones on this list are currently in stock on most popular ecommerce sites.
1. Samsung Galaxy Chat B5330
With 4GB storage, Android 4.0 and a 2MP camera, this QWERTY smartphone was made for chatting.
2. LG Nexus 5
3. Samsung Galaxy Ace
4. Nokia Asha 203
5. Motorla Moto G
In my opinion, Motorola has created an Android phone that rivals the iPhone/Galaxy S4 itself (in terms of value for money). It’s fast, with a brilliant screen and the price is astonishing.
6. Sony Xperia E1
Sony’s yet to release this classy little number, but when it does, I predict that it will explode onto the scene. It’s cute, pleasingly chubby and has a gorgeous 4-inch display.
7. ZTE Blade Q Mini
8. Huawei Ascend Y300
9. LG Optimus L5 II
10. Samsung Galaxy Rush
11. Kyocera Rise
