Should I upgrade to a 4G/LTE phone?

Episode 901

Richard from Poway, CA

Leo says it largely depends on if 4G is in his area for his wireless carrier. It also depends on how he uses the smartphone. If he's a heavy user of data, then 4G/LTE is a good option. He also wants to be able to surf online while on a phone call, and Verizon's LTE network would allow that as opposed to their 3G network. If he's happy with his current phone, there isn't a compelling reason to upgrade to 4G. Battery life also isn't near as good on the 4G/LTE phones.
