The Most Affordable Phones of 2018

Affordable is something that is quality and cheap.

Water is Cheap.

A Water Flask or canister is affordable.

But if you look at the dollar equivalent of your phone, you would realize that they are dirt cheap considering you can buy a phone for as low as $5 – $10 in Nigeria.
