Chinese smartphone vendor ZTE is predominantly known for supplying mobile Telecoms in emerging markets with Telecom equipment than being a smartphone producer.
Like Alcatel Lucent, ZTE concentrates its efforts in producing cheap entry-level and mid-range feature and smartphones. These are mainly targeted for first-time smartphone buyers or those on a budget in emerging markets. ZTE mainly partners with networks across the globe to sell its devices.
In Uganda, ZTE smartphones can be found at MTN Uganda and Smart telecom Uganda stores.
However, smart telecom has a unique offering. They sell ZTE smartphones on contract and without a contract. The ZTE blade for instance goes for a price of Ugx 399,000 without a contract. However, you can also get the device without upfront costs. But be ready to commit to paying Ugx 65,000/month for one year. You’ll also be given 1.5GB/month for an entire year when you buy the smartphone on contract. It’s something similar to what Africell Uganda is doing with iDroid USA’s Royal V4.
Here’s a list of available ZTE smartphones and prices in Uganda.
