1. Do You Use Your Phone To Work?
If you use your phone to download documents, video call clients or send videos to clients, it is likely a wise idea to have a 4G contract. 4G is faster and allows for faster downloads of documents. Plus, video calls and international phone calls will be better connected and better quality.
2. Do You Talk and Text A Lot?
The guy who has kids and a spouse sending him videos and photos, and ‘FaceTiming’ or video calling often should consider a 4G contract because his phone will not be able to keep up with all of those texts and calls if he is on a slow phone. However, if a guy does not spend a great deal of his time on his phone during the day, he may not need a phone that has such a fast connection.
3. Do You Take A Lot Of Pictures?
Many people have taken to using their phone as a personal camera rather than investing money in a separate camera. Because of this, many guys may want to have a faster connection speed simply to allow their phone to send the photos and videos to the cloud (and Facebook) fast enough. Also, the guy who is taking pictures is likely sending those pictures and videos to people. Without the faster connection, it is hard to share those photos and videos with any speed. 4G means the difference between sending a single photo to a friend and an entire photo album.
It all comes down to how you use your phone. If you’re a data hog then 4G is a good investment, if you rarely use your phone – or only use it for texting and calling – it’s probably wasted money.
