With 4G network connectivity being the norm lately, it is only right for you to know the 4G bands your Android device supports before choosing to switch to a 4G network.
Before now, the vital specs of a smartphone would be the camera, hardware and software. With GLO, Etisalat, nTel, and MTN having 4G LTE network service on board, 4G band is a necessity when looking through a phone specs.
Just so you know, different ISPs supports 4G bands that MAY not work on most Android phones. For example, MTN 4G supports iPhone 6 but nTel doesn’t.
nTel 4G LTE works well on the Tecno Camon C9 Android phone but glo 4G LTE network doesn’t. So, you get the point yeah?
How To Know Which 4G Bands Your Android Phone Support
- Download and install MTK engineering Tool
- Upon launching the app, tap on MTK settings > BandMode > Select SIM.
- There, you’d see all the available GSM bands, UMTS bands as well as the LTE (4G) bands.
By default, you’d see some ticked bands outlined in White colors while others are in grey. Now, those are the bands your phone supports.
Hence, if you plan on using a 4G SIM that doesn’t support any of those white outlined bands, it won’t work. Best of luck!
