This article will provide information on "what are the top 14 best and cheapest android phones in Nigeria?" and also provide answers to questions regarding best android phones in Nigeria.

Brief History of Android Phone in Nigeria

The Nigerian society had its first feel of mobile telephony in 2001. Interestingly, the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) is almost in its 19th year in Nigeria. At inception, what mattered was getting a means of virtual communication without having to depend on people who owned land phones to communicate. Apparently, this ended the monopoly of the only telecommunication company, Nigerian Telecommunications Limited (NITEL) which supplied wired telephony. It cannot be denied that this probably contributed to the death of this government agency, including other systems. For instance, the commercial Internet access market characterised by cybercafés patronage has consistently dwindled. smartphones remained the primary access to the Internet despite the influx of other mobile and smart devices. In another report, approximately 23% of the population in sub-Saharan Africa use the mobile Internet on a regular basis. And by 2025, almost half of the population would have subscribed to a mobile service. This, to an extent, depicts that the level of Internet penetration has resulted more from personal use of smartphones than the use of other browsing devices. Although the introduction of mobile phones engendered the possibilities for connectivity without borders at that time, it was a luxury phone and the Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card likewise only the rich could afford. The prices were as high as ?100,000 ($970) and ?50,000 ($485), respectively. Agreeably, this charge can be described to be common with new inventions. But depending on the product, this high price may not last long. Often, new technologies are only costly until competition comes in. Sometimes, the price of the older product may not reduce probably because it is yet to get back the cost of research and development. And while it is possible for the competition to have a relatively higher price because it came with an upgrade, what matters is that a buyer now has a number of choices. And this brings about the inclusiveness of different demographics. Techpoint got a man in his 60s to share his mobile phone journey. A key piece of information in his submission revealed that mobile phones came not just as a luxury but also as a necessity and that has remained until today. He recounts how the trendy cellphones at the time were Nokia 3310 and the Samsung series. But he had to wait three years before he could afford one, even as a public servant. Although the relative affordability of smartphones is debatable since the poverty rate in the country cannot be dismissed, there are convenient means through which the cheaper phones can be acquired. The fact that smartphones and smart feature phones keep getting cheaper in the African markets is also a sign of a promising future to come.
