Before I share the list, I will like to say that my focus here are young people in their late teens. I also placed a cost ceiling of N25,000. I also considered the cost of internet access, which you will have to pay for him/her to maintain the phone. In case you want to understand smartphones better, read our how to buy a smartphone article. Now the list follows:

Nokia Asha 311

Nokia Asha 311

Nokia Asha 311 is the ultimate smartphone for children in their late teens. It comes with a powerful processor and a responsive 3.0-inch capacitive touchscreen. It comes bundled with 40 free EA games, so he can kill time when bored. Nokia Asha 311 features fast 3G internet (up to 10.2mbps) so he can find the information he wants fast.

The phone is also well integrated with social media for keeping in touch with friends on Twitter and Facebook. He can also download and install Whatsapp for free SMS and instant messaging with friends. Nokia Asha 311 is data efficient, so N1000 monthly data bill will be okay with responsible use.

Nokia is also currently offering the Nokia Asha 311 with 6 months free internet access. So, if you buy Asha 311 this Christmas season, you will not have to worry about paying for internet access for the next 6 months. The phone also offers Wi-Fi and a 3.2 megapixel camera. Nokia Asha 311 comes at a price range of N17,500 and N20,000.

LG Optimus L3 E405

LG Optimus L3 E405

This is another great smartphone for people in their late teens. LG Optimus L3 E405 features 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen (the largest in this list). It also features fast 3G Internet (up to 3.6mbps) with lots of free apps and games at the Google Play Store. LG Optimus L3 E405 also features a 3.2 megapixel camera.

A note of caution though, Android is known to consume lots of data which means you may have to pay more on data cost. So, you need to instruct your child to use data responsibly and to limit downloads on music and movies as well as turnoff non-essential apps.

You can also advice him/her to download and use the Opera Mini browser. The LG Optimus L3 E405 comes at a price range of N16,500 and N21,000.

Samsung Galaxy Pocket

Samsung Galaxy Pocket

Another Android smartphone that will be perfect for your teenager is the Samsung Galaxy Pocket. It features the popular Android OS with lots of free apps and games. It has a 2.8-inch capacitive touchscreen and a 2.0 megapixels camera. It also features fast 3G internet (up to 3.6mbps).

Like with the Optimus L3 E400, data consumption may also be a concern and the same precautions apply. The Samsung Galaxy Pocket comes at a price range of N18,500 and N20,000.

Nokia Asha 305

Nokia Asha 305 Dual-SIM

This is the cheapest phone in the list and should be seriously considered if you are on budget. The downside to this phone is that unlike the rest of the smartphones in the list, Nokia Asha 305 does not feature 3G internet, but GPRS/EDGE (up to 0.26mbps). So, downloads will appear slow.

However, browsing is fast thanks to Nokia’s Xpress browser, which uses cloud compression technology to compress data reducing data cost and increasing speed. Nokia Asha 305 is a dual-SIM phone with a 3.0-inch resistive touchscreen and a 2.0 megapixels camera. The battery life is also awesome at 14 hours talktime. This phone also comes with 6 months free internet. The price of the Nokia Asha 305 starts at around N13,500.
