Above are some of the best 4G Phones you can buy in Nigeria right now. From the list it is clear that MTN, Airtel, Glo Mobile, and 9Mobile supports all the best 4G phones.

Glo Mobile is the only one of the big four 4G networks in Nigeria with limited support, though more LTE phones now support Glo.

In fact, a lot of cheap Android phones do not support the awkward band 28 (700MHz) that Glo Mobile offers. This means that some Infinix phones and Tecno phones do not support 4G LTE on Glo Mobile.

Note that although some phones here do not support 4G LTE on Glo Mobile, they will support 3G HSPA+ and GSM on Glo. This means you can use all these 4G phones on Glo Mobile. However, you cannot enjoy the faster 4G LTE speeds.
