    Hey guys,

    Im looking for the cheapest android phone they can work on 5ghz wifi.

    I have an LG rebel 4 and LG Journey and they claim:

    “Good connectivity of this device includes Bluetooth 4.2 + A2DP, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n (2.4Ghz, 5Ghz), but it lacks NFC connection”

    However I cannot for the life of my get it to work on 5ghz wifi. Is there some secret options menu or a newer OS needed to enable this? TIY

    Those are not true 5g phones. Wifi has 2 bands, yes. But that only pertains to wifi.
    However almost all phones can run what you seek.

    Look in the WiFi settings - tap the 3 dot menu and tap Advanced WiFi. Is there an option for Dual Band WiFi, or something similar?

    Does your router have a separate SSID for the 5Ghz channel?

    Where do you see 5Ghz WiFi listed? LG spec pages don't mention it for either phone:

    Rebel 4 specs say 802.11b/g/n which is 2.4Ghz.

    Look for a phone that supports "WiFi 5" or "802.11 a/b/g/n/ac."
