This week my attention was drawn to this Xtigi S18 mobile phone for the simple reason that it combines the functionality of a portable power-bank and a mobile phone and it can keep charge for a whole month! and costs only Ksh. 2,380
While using it as a mobile phone, I was able to use it for a whole month without a recharge. This involved receiving and making a maximum of 5 calls a day each within 3 to 5 minutes and of course replying to my text messages. As a portable power-bank I was able to recharge my 4400mAh Infinix hot note battery up to a maximum of 5 times.
I came to the conclusion that if you are looking for an ideal phone for your grandmother, for your parents in rural areas without electricity, for a retreat or travel then this is the best. And if you belong to the less tech savvy group that isn’t excited about a fancy screen, games and all the power consuming applications go for it!
