      Please, the model you got for that amount, how many GB RAM does it ship with?

      • Oluwaseun

        It's 1 gig Ram. Quad-core processor and a 4g lte phone. Other ones I saw was very expensive 2gig Ram with 4glte is heading to 70k upwards. Except you don't care about a 4g lte phones. Then 2gig Ram with 3g network might be cheaper. I saw a gionee with 4glte 2gig Ram but no finger print and as a smaller screen than Tecno w5 At 44k so I made my choice for w5 I'll name the 1gig Ram.
