Would you Buy the Nokia C31 (4GB RAM, 64GB) at Ksh550 a Week?

EDITOR'S NOTE: This article is a part of our Money254 Partner Series and is produced in partnership with Mogo Kenya. For more on Money254’s editorial policy, read here.  

The Nokia C31 is one of the budget smartphones manufactured by Nokia, the Finnish telco that dominated the early mobiles phones market in Kenya. 

The Nokia C31 was launched in September last year and comes with an impressive 6.75 inch display screen. This makes it easy to enjoy the infotainment options including watching films on Netflix and following videos on Tiktok and YouTube. 

It has a triple rear camera that is powered by Google. 

The main camera has 13MP while the macro and depth cameras have 2MP each. It also has a 5-megapixel front camera for capturing selfies and making video calls

The Nokia C31 runs on Android 12, with a 4GB RAM space. This allows the Nokia C31 to offer a wide range of apps from the Google Play Store - including Facebook, Twitter, Tiktok, etc. Powered by a quad-core processor, it offers smooth multitasking and decent performance for everyday tasks. 

With 64GB internal memory, you are guaranteed lots of space for your music, videos and images - without having to regularly delete your files or apps. The phone offers you the chance to expand the internal space up to 256GB through a micro SD card. 

The Nokia C31 also packs a large 5,050mAh battery that provides ample power to last throughout the day, reducing the need for frequent charging.

The phone supports 4G LTE connectivity, ensuring fast internet speeds and reliable communication. 


Other features include: 

  • Fingerprint (rear-mounted),
  • Bluetooth and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
  • Dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by)
  • Splash resistant
  • Three colour selections - mint, cyan, and charcoal

The Nokia C31 is available across various retailers in Kenya. There are also various ownership options you can choose from. If you currently do not have the full amount to make an outright cash purchase, the Nokia C32 is available through the Mogo smartphone loan

To buy the phone through financing, you will be required to make a minimum downpayment of Ksh3,000. You will then access the phone and complete the payment by making weekly instalments of at least Ksh550 for 52 weeks.

N/B: Note you can also opt to repay in 26 or 39 weeks depending on your preference. There is also the option of an early repayment which saves you the interest, and does not attract any penalties.

How to Get the Nokia C31 Through Mogo Smartphone Financing

To get the Nokia C31 through the Mogo smartphone loan, you start by making an application on the Mogo Kenya website here

The following standard information is required:  

  • Your Full name
  • Your National ID Number
  • Your Phone Number
  • Your Email Address
  • From the drop-down menu, select the smartphone you intend to purchase 

You will also be required to authorise Mogo Kenya to carry out a credit status check with one of the registered Credit Reference Bureaus (CRBs) in Kenya. 

Once you are pre-qualified, a Mogo representative will be in touch with you and request for the following documents: 

  • A picture of your original ID document (clear photos, back and front parts)
  • 6 months Mpesa statement. (*100# Options to follow 1,4,1,1,4,1 OR *234# options 5,1,1,1,4)
  • 6 digit code sent to you by Safaricom via SMS

Once these documents are received by Mogo, you will get a notification giving you a formal loan offer. 

You can either sign the loan offer while collecting the phone at a Mogo branch, or you can be referred to partner stores where you will sign the loan offer as you collect your phone.

N/B: You can also visit any Mogo branch for a physical application process. 

If you are in Nairobi and would prefer to have the smartphone delivered to you, this is possible with Mogo Kenya. 

For the home or office delivery, you are required to pay Ksh500 upfront. This is part of the down payment amount. Once the device is delivered, you will be requested to pay the remaining down payment balance of Ksh2,500. 

You will then begin making your weekly instalments until you clear the balance. After this, the device becomes fully yours.
