And now that we have various 4G LTE mobile networks all over the place, it’s not strange for people to be hunting for a cheap smartphone that can do 4G. However, if you wish to push further by getting expensive ones, there are a lot of 4G smartphones around looking for buyers to splurge cash on them. But if you are on a budget, not so many. So we hunted out the cheapest 4G smartphones you can buy in 2018 just for you.

There are a few things to note though. There is such a thing as 4G compatibility. Your 4G smartphone will not work with all 4G networks, so you have to find out what 4G bands your preferred network runs and then make sure that the phone you want to buy supports that band. So, be sure to look in the “Supported 4G Frequency bands” section for each phone listed below.

Also, when shopping for the cheapest 4G smartphones, many of them will run older software. The older the software, the greater the chances of app incompatibility (as rare as that may be), as well as other issues.

Finally, for the purpose of this article, we shall be sticking to 4G smartphones that cost below ₦30,000 and we shall work our way down to the very cheapest of the lot.
