Best 4G LTE Smartphones in Nepal For Every Price Segment

tecno Ad

Since the first day of this year in the English calendar, our country took a leap from 3rd generation of data technology for cellular networks to the 4th. Though restrained for the postpaid users initially, Nepal Telecom has now unhooked the barriers and made available for prepaid users too. And now even the iPhone (iPhone 5 series and later) users are benefited. However, this service is currently confined in the Pokhara and Kathmandu valley only.

This new data technology has enhanced the data transfer speed. Theoretically, the data transfer speed on the 4G network is said to be around 100Mbps. However, in the data speed test, the speed was found to be around 30 Mbps in Nepal. While surfing the internet through the 4G network, the speed was found more than two times faster than the 3rd generation (3G). So this enhancement is obviously a good news. Before this new technology overrules the data technology in our country, let us acquaint you with the best 4G LTE enabled smartphones in Nepal.

Below Rs. 10,000

Under Rs. 10,000 price segment, we found InFocus Bingo 20 (Buy here) to be the best 4G LTE enabled smartphone in Nepal. Priced at just Rs.8,999, it is one of the few phones under Rs.10,000 to feature 4G LTE. It also supports VOLTE (Voice over LTE) which is an added bonus.
