ABSTRACT

 This study examines the determinant of demand for mobile phones among undergraduates in Nigeria with special reference to Lagos State University, main Campus. In order to accomplish the objective of the study, a sample of 215 respondents were taken using simple random sampling technique. Primary data was mainly used and some secondary data from internet and book sources were explored. Five important variables such as: price, product features, brand name, social influence and physical appearance were examined and analyzed through the use of descriptive statistics. From the analysis, Empirical evidences show that product features remain the most significant predictor of Smartphone purchase behavior than brand name and price in that order. It is necessary to highlight that the results of this study can provide new marketing dynamics to Smartphone manufacturers and marketers for a market, which will be contributing a major share in the revenue of these firms.
