KimFly Smartphones Review: Features, Spec & Prices of KimFly Devices

Chinese cell phone manufacturers are churning out newer Android devices like they’re on steroids.  They are on the verge of becoming a global power-house for mobile technology innovations.

Kim Fly Android smart phones is one of the newest guys making waves in African mobile markets. Kim Fly, though not as popular as Xiaomi, Leagoo, Tecno, Infinix, Meizu, and other top Chinese brands are holding a sizeable share of monthly smart phone sales in Nigerian stores.

One of our editors recently bought their best-selling Kimfly master M6 device for review purposes, and thought it wise to share the full list of their product lines in tech shops.

 

List of Kimfly Android Smartphones in Nigerian Tech Stores

Here’s list of Android smart phones and devices produced by KimFly technologies and currently in Nigerian tech shops.

Even though I do not recommend their devices, based on the negative experience I had with their master M6 smart phone (see https://www.obasimvilla.com/kimfly-master-m6-review.html for full details), I must confess that I was somehow impressed with their customer service center at Onitcha main market.

The listed devices can be purchased from popular city-wide shopping malls or from online e-commerce websites such as Jumia, Konga, Jiji and etc.

Review/Wrap Up

From the list, one can deduce that KimFly is an entry-level brand with boring devices in their product line. Only their M12 and M6 are somewhat comparable with what’s obtainable in today’s highly saturated Android market.

We strongly advice you read up unbiased reviews about a particular product model before going for it. We’d update this list with newer devices as soon as the need arises.

  1. Nice post on Kim Fly devices.

  2. Can I do an account and balance, for the kimfly Z50, i have kimfly M4 and i want to trade. Am in onitsha too.

    • Hi clinton,

      You can go to their office located besides Emeka Offor to make a direct inquiry on this.

  3. pl miracle i bought kimfly m12 bt i dont like d features and i wish to chang it what shuld i do

    • Do you stay around Onitcha?

  4. Kimfly m12 specification on net is actually a scam..I bought the phone in Emeka offor plaza andI can’t believe it has 2 GB ROM and 526mb ram…The way it hangs is nothing to write home about…what a waste

    • So far, there’s hardly a positive review for KimFly devices. this is why we never recommended them in our reviews.

  5. I have M10. I don’t like how it hangs daily and formats my memory card . It shows a lot of ads and the phone doesn’t have enough space. I feel like taking it back to d producers

    • Hi Bosset,

      You can return the device if it’s still under warranty, else your best bet is doing a full hard reset.

  6. I bought kimfly m12 for 25,000 @ buchi osel’s in emekaofor plaza, I went to exchange it, they took it back at 13,500(I lost 11’500) As if that wasn’t enough, he sold techno pop1 (f3) to me @ 35,000 while it is at 27,000 in the market. So he cheated me by over 18,000.

    • Hi Kamsy

      This is so bad and somewhat fraudulent. Hopefully, Nigeria consumer protection and SON gets to look into shady products like this one.

  7. i have a kimfiy i7 but the phone is no longer giving me joy, last night the screen started showing some weird things like a tv that has no signal till this morning. What can i do about it. and it hangs alot

    • Have you tried doing a soft/hard reset on the device?
