This segment accounts for 42.98% of the market supply by value and 19.48% of the stock volume (i.e. number of listings). The two worldwide leading brands, Samsung and Apple, confirmed their dominance within this segment in Kenya.

The low-end mobile phones are represented by the Ksh 10k to Ksh 20k price segment. This segment accounts for 19.1% of the market supply by value and 34.34% of the stock volume. The two Chinese brands  Infinix and Tecno are leading this segment in the Kenyan market.
