Google Reveals 2016's Most Searched Smartphones in Nigeria.

Nigerians and their love for Smartphones, though:

In Google’s ‘Year in Search’ for 2016, Google revealed the top 10 most searched Smartphones in Nigeria, and unsurprisingly, Infinix and Tecno dominated the search.
The top Smartphone that Nigerians searched for is:

The iPhone 7!
Android fanboys won’t like this. 
The Infinix Note 3 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 also ruled 2016’s smartphone search.

Other players include Tecno Camon C9, Infinix Hot 4, Tecno Boom J8, Infinix Hot 2 (WHAT?!), Infinix Zero 3, Tecno W4 and the Tecno W3.
 

I’d assume that the current economic situation in the country has made Nigerians search for cheaper alternatives, hence the reason Tecno W4 and W3 are in the list.

    … WELL, I SUPPOSE iPHONE 7 TOPPED THE LIST BECAUSE OF THE PRICE, THE MEMES, THE JABS AND THE LIKES SURROUNDING IT. WHEN IT COMES TO AFFORDABLE SMARTPHONES IN NIGERIA, INFINIX A D TECNO TAKE THE LEAD. FOR SAMSUNG, THEY ARE STILL ARE GIANT HERE AND I HOPE THEY CONTINUE TO BE…

    Not surprised to see tecno and infinix, they have cheaper phone and their launch game is lit. I guess people are searching iPhone 7 because of the hype surrounding it and wanting to know what’s so special about it.

    That piece of sh*t W3 won’t let me save any apps on my SD CARD. WTF???

  9. pWilliams says:

    Hmmmm….I personally searched for the specs of all those phones listed???

  10. Victor Molokwu says:

    Infinix x tecno can come up with numbers of sales to do justice to the search trends, I can’t say so for IP7

    1. ỌBÁDÁRÀ says:

      … WELL, THAT’S CONSIDERING THE FACT THAT NOT MANY CAN AFFORD THE iPHONE 7/PLUS HERE. BUT ON A GLOBAL STAGE, TECNO AND INFINIX WILL RUN AWAY AT APPLE’S SALES NUMBER…
