If you are in the market for a new smartphone and want to get the best deals on your mobile phone purchase, mark June 1 to June 7, 2015 on your calendar. This is the date of the biggest mobile phones sales event in Nigeria for 2015 tagged the Jumia Mobile Week Megathon. During the event, you will discover great deals on mobile phones from leading brands in Nigeria like Innjoo, Infinix, Tecno, LG, Samsung, Tecno, Lenovo, Apple, Wiko, and so on.

Jumia Mobile Week Megathon 2015

During the Jumia Mobile Week Megathon, consumers will enjoy amazing prices and deals on their favorite mobile phones. According to Jumia, the prices will be so low you will not believe it.

A number of brands like Wiko, Infinix, Innjoo, and possibly LG will be launching new phones in Nigeria during the mobile sales event. Innjoo will be launching the Innjoo Fire and Innjoo Max during the event while Infinix is also expected to launch the successor of the Infinix Zero during the event.

The biggest one however, is the possibility that LG could launch its latest flagship phone, the LG G4 during the mobile phones sales event. The LG G4 is expected to begin its global launch in late May to early June, which falls with in the duration of the event, hence my hunch.

Each brand will have its special day of deals. On that day, consumers get amazing deals from the brand. If you have a favourite brand, you should probably note the brand's day of deals and expect great mobile phone deals from the brand on that day.

To sweeten the deal, MTN will be offering 3GB free data on any phone bought at the Jumia Mobile Week Megathon. MTN will also be offering 6 months of WhatsApp access as well as one free month of music streaming on MTN Music.

Jumia Mobile Week Megathon 2015

During the Jumia Mobile Week Megathon, which takes place from June 1 to June 7, 2015, consumers in Nigeria will get the best deals on mobile phones from brands like Innjoo, Infinix, Tecno, LG, Samsung, Tecno, Lenovo, Apple, Wiko, and possibly many more brands.

However, the event will not be complete without the mother of all smartphones in the duo of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

But, Samsung should not be too comfortable though as LG could be offering their latest flagship, the LG G4 at the mobile sales event. With LG G4's global launch scheduled for late May to early June, it likely that the flagship smartphone could be making its debut in Nigeria during the Jumia Mobile Week Megathon.

Top 10 Bestselling Phones in Nigeria March 2015

One great benefit I got by attending the Tech Bloggers Round table hosted by Jumia was that I was able to lay my hands on some eye opening data on mobile sales volume in Nigeria. The report by Gesellschaft für Konsumforschung (GFK), a leading market research organization, shows that over 539,000 mobile phones were sold in Nigeria in March 2015. Here I will share the top 10 bestselling mobile phones in Nigeria.


Bestselling Phones in Nigeria march 2015
The March 2015 GFK mobile sales reports named Infinix Hot as the bestselling phone in Nigeria with 21,368 units sold. Nokia/Microsoft has the most presence in the top 10 with four models, followed by Samsung with three models, while BlackBerry and Tecno completes the list with one model each.

When you extend to the top 20 bestselling phones in Nigeria, Samsung becomes the biggest winner, accounting for 50% of the top 20 with 10 models, followed by Nokia/Microsoft with five models, and Tecno with 3 models with BlackBerry and Infinix completing the list with one each.

However, I am only interested in the top ten. So, here are the top 10 bestselling phones in Nigeria in March 2015 according to the GFK mobile sales report:

Click on the name of the phone for detailed specs

  10. Samsung Galaxy Ace 4 Lite - 4-inch, 233ppi, Android 4.4, 512MB RAM, 3.2MP, 4GB storage, up to 32GB card - Check Price
The mobile sales figures confirm the fact the Nigerian consumers look for great value when they shop for mobile phones. For example, 50% of top 10 bestselling phones in Nigeria cost less than 20,000 naira (100 USD).

They are not necessarily looking for the cheapest phones, but for the phone that offers the best value at the most affordable price. As expected Android dorminate the top 10 with 70% of the top 10 with Windows Phone taking 20% and BlackBerry 10%.

Smartphones with 4-inch to 5-inch display seems to be very popular with 80% of the top 10 best selling phones in Nigeria offering 4-inch to 5-inch displays.

According to the GFK mobile sales report 539,505 mobile phones were sold in Nigeria in March, with the top ten devices accounting for 29.7% with 160,198 units and the top 20 for 46.4% with 250,618 units.
