EDITOR’S CONCLUSION OF THIS CATEGORY : As we can see , this category is dominated by devices with 2GB RAM and 16GB/32GB storage. My favourite here is the Camon C9 a big , well built smartphone with good specs and a lot of attraction.
Infinix Note 3 also makes sense , but i don’t see it as an  improvement on the Note 2.
My best bargain device is the TECNO L8 PLUS  , mainly because of its HUGE battery and the fact that you can get it for less than #40,000.
Overall , i think it’s a good list , and these are some of the best android phones in nigeria you can get with that budget.

EDITOR’S CONCLUSION OF THIS CATEGORY :  As we can see , a lot of smartphones in this category are high end flagship devices with the best specs you can get. My favourite choice goes to the Galaxy S7 edge ; a good looking device with an incredibly fast processor. The camera is also one of the best in the market.
If you need a lot of power , the Huawei Mate 8 should be top of your list. The 4000mAh battery can last for up to 24hours of heavy usage.
I’m sure that you noticed  i omitted the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Well , that is because the device is currently going through a rough path.
A lot of people have complained of heating issues when using the device , and samsung had no other option than to recall it from the market.
That said , i believe these are the best android phones in nigeria you can get with a budget of above hundred thousand naira.




ARTICLE CONCLUSION :
This is a very long article , and i want  to say a big thanks to you for reading this to the end. I’m sure with this guide , you will be able to make a choice from the long list of best android phones in nigeria.
