The Steppa is MTN’s exclusive Android-powered budget smartphone. At a mere R499, it may have the potential to be a real game changer.
PROS
Value for money; solid app support; offers quality smartphone experience
CONS
Camera and Video quality poor; plastic body slightly fragile; access to micro SD slot cumbersome
VERDICT
At R499, the Steppa is the best value for money smartphone experience you can get at the moment. If marketed correctly by MTN, it will go a long way in bringing a 'connected' lifestyle to emerging smartphone sectors in Africa.
