    Sounds like a dramatic statement, but if your used to using 4G, and have been using it for sometime, 3G seems archaic.

    Today, after being a 4G user for sometime and not giving it a second thought, I ended up in a 3G "neighborhood" and wow was it slow. So slow that I in fact waited until I got home to do "stuff".

    Sounds foolish to me but dang it's so true.

    If you don't have 4G yet you're in for a real treat.

    If you have it stay put, don't move :) Like me you'll find the 3G frustratingly slow and a reminder of days gone by.

    What do you think? How would you best describe it?

    4g really is that big of a difference, still boggles my mind after having it for about 7 months now.

    I wish I could use 4g but I can't find a ROM with which it doesn't eat my battery. At most I maybe get a few hours

    No ROM will change that. LTE is a battery killer. Especially since the CDMA radio has to remain on also.
