In fact, some cheap Android phones do not support the awkward band 28 (700MHz) that Glo Mobile offers. This means that some Infinix phones and Tecno phones may 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.
