Introducing Solo Inspire U5 Plus and Inspire U5: Buy these phones on instalment plans

Posted by Rachel

Solo Inspire U5 Plus and Solo Inspire U5 are two smartphones that are available only via a device financing contract on the MTN Nigeria network. In other words, you do not pay the cost of the phone outright, but instead pay a small monthly instalment for a period ranging from 9 to 12 months.

While Solo Inspire U5 Plus is a 4G phone, the Inspire U5 is a 3G phone and does not offer support for 4G LTE networks. Besides the 4G difference, the Inspire U5 plus has a bigger display, bigger battery, and bigger RAM that the non-Plus model.

Both devices are entry-level Android phones that come with additional benefits that include free airtime minutes and free data, as well as access to SOLOGames, SOLOMusic, and SOLOView, among others. In addition, both devices come with an insurance package that includes replacement of the device in case of theft once within the contract period, and free screen replacement in case of damage once within the contract period.
