4g is been made a massive deal of by phone networks, its the latest hot word to try sell you a new phone / contract. However I've had a 4g phone for a few months now, in that time i've concluded i dont really need 4g, which is what i expected before 4g even started to be rolled out here in the UK. 3g is pretty fast, i can often get speeds up to 15mbps+ which is more than enough for any intensive data usage on the go. Sure 4g is insanely fast, i've seen people get 100mbps+ in some countries on it, i get around 25-35mbps wich is pretty good considering 4g signal is so weak in a lot of places around me at the moment. However i actually have told my phone to default to 3g, i realised unless im tethering and downloading something i'm never going to need such high speeds for casual browsing on my phone and streaming video. I would sooner have full 3g signal everywhere rather than very weak 4g signal wich drains your battery quicker as the phone is using more power to try keep you connected. I can certainly see uses for 4g in the future, however i personally dont think ill make much use of it for a long time yet. 3g is perfectly fine fine for me, even streaming 1080p video on Plex / YouTube! What about you? do you think 4g is a must have or have you found you dont really make much use of it?
