    Default Is it possible to purchase a phone without 4G/LTE (for development purchases only)?

    Hi,

    I'm working for a company that develops Android Apps and I was wondering if there are any retailers that sell Android phones without 4G/LTE, but have every other capability? Are these called unlocked phones? because they seem to be wayyy expensive?

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    The Nexus line of phones is usually considered the standard for developer phones. Also, feature per feature they weigh in at less $$$ than almost any device in their CPU class.

    If a Nexus 5 is too much there are plenty of used Nexus 4's out there that are still at the highest Android version available today.

    Do you mean a phone that doesn't have 4G/LTE radios or one that doesn't require the purchase of a 4G/LTE plan?
    You can do either, but like you said, the latter is expensive if you are buying a high end phone.

    The first generation Moto G didn't have 4G, but is otherwise an excellent phone, from all reports.
