 What is the Price of Gionee Dream D1 Budget Android Smartphone ?

There is no single answer to this very question as there can’t be a universal price for a product of this sort. It differs between various countries, a friend of mine in Kenya bought it for an amount different from one in Ghana and South Africa respectively.

But the official price ranges from $270 to $292 that is about N42,000 to N46,000 in Nigerian Naira.

Promotion and marketing can also affect the prices in various places as network providers in India, Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya and South Africa where the product is very popular seems to be promoting them from time to time.

Also Keep a Keen ear to hear when such promotions are available.

  1. My sister wants F7 phantom A, and i want to buy it her as a gift, she is working in Nigeria now. I found this site to buy And need some opinions about prices there, as for me they seems to be low, but i’m not sure. Some advices will be great!

    • Most of those are used ones without any form of warranty. I’d advice you opt for or jumia Nigeria instead.
