How to know if your iPhone, Windows, Android Phone is 4G Enabled

4G Smartphone

4G LTE shouldn't come as a new word to you. But just to refresh your memory. According to Wikipedia,
"4G is the fourth generation of broadband cellular network technology, succeeding 3G. A 4G system must provide capabilities defined by ITU in IMT Advanced. Potential and current applications include amended mobile web access, IP telephony, gaming services, high-definition mobile TV, video conferencing, and 3D television."

I must say, 4G LTE browsing experience is the bomb! Sometimes, in less than two minutes, I am able to download a movie of 300MB+; not to now talk of music files that is just 10 to 15MB. How many secs do you think it would take to download? Do maths!

So without further ado, let's head to the discussion of the day.

How to know if your phone supports 4G

There are times where by you just got a smartphone, maybe from a friend or someone, or it's even a fairly used phone; and you wonder how you can know if the phone supports 4G or not. If you are in this position, then you are in the right place, because as soon as you are done reading this article, you will be enlightened! (Just as I always say.)
