    4G is faster than 3G. If you see a phone that says 4G instead of 4G LTE know that there is a difference. Plain 4G without it saying LTE isn't 4G at all it is HSPA+ which is still faster than 3G.

    4G is more expensive but it is said to be faster than 3G and the other lower and earlier versions (2G, satellite, wifi, etc.). It is also said that 4G can never hit a dead zone. This means that your 4G phone will never fully lose service. It also makes it easier to send media messages and go on the Internet. I recommend 4G.

    4G is in all of the latest smart phones like the new droids and iphones. It is more expensive to buy a phone that has 4g acess but it is very fast, faster than 3g and 1x
