What 4G can do that 3G can't.

Because 4G is so much faster and stronger than a normal 3G signal, it means you can do things with 4G that just aren't possible on 3G.

Video Streaming.

Netflix, YouTube.

Thanks to the super fast download speeds, streaming videos using apps, and even through web browsers, is far better. Videos will start much faster as they won't have to load for as long, and they also won't stop half way through anymore because 4G is a more constant and reliable connection than 3G. 4G also means you can stream better quality videos for a sharper viewing experience, and still keep the image smooth and clear.


8Tracks, TuneIn Radio.

In short, any internet radio app will run much better on 4G. Instead of having to wait for a station to load, they'll load in a second or two, meaning switching radio stations won't take as long. The feed will also stream smoothly, without the gaps or stuttering you often get on 3G.

Mapping & routing.

Google Maps, Apple Maps, Bing Maps.

If you've just got off the tube and have no idea where you need to go, 4G is your saviour. Because the internet connection is faster than 3G, new maps will update practically instantaneously. Using 3G, you might have walked in the wrong direction for some time before the app was able to update and give an accurate location.

Email attachments and photo sharing.

Gmail, Outlook, Instagram, Facebook.

Sending a huge attachment full of your holiday snaps to your family? Or maybe you're uploading the album to Facebook for everyone to see. With 3G, large email attachments could take minutes to send, and if you're posting a collection of photos to Facebook, that spinning icon might stay on the screen for ages. With 4G you won't have to wait – big emails will send straight away, and photos uploaded to sites like Instagram and Facebook will appear instantly.


Google Play Store, Apple App Store, Windows Store, BlackBerry® World.

4G means you can download apps in a matter of seconds. Perhaps you want to search for a flight on your lunch break – just download an app like Skyscanner in seconds. You don't have to wait to be near a Wi-Fi connection with 4G. Maybe you're waiting at the airport, and want a game to pass the time. Download games in seconds, and it'll be there for your flight. If you want something, with 4G you can get it right away.

Video sharing

Whatsapp, ChatON.

Sending a picture to a friend, or even a short video, but in a hurry? With 3G, that upload bar can take a while to complete, and if all you're trying to do is send a good high res shot of the car you're about to buy to your dad for a second opinion…you'll want 4G. It'll upload and send the photo up to 5 times faster.

Internet voice and video calls.

Skype, Viber, FaceTime.

At the moment, most people venture indoors to find a Wi-Fi connection in order to get a decent video call going as 3G isn't quite powerful enough. When you're using 4G, because both the download and the upload rate is up to 5 times faster, you can take a video call anywhere to show off the dress you're thinking of buying, the bar you're in, or just to say hi.

Tethering and mobile hotspots.

Tethering is the feature in many smartphones that lets you share the internet connection of your smartphone with Wi-Fi enabled devices. So, if you're out with your laptop and just need to get online, you can tether. While 3G can do this, it's nothing compared to tethering with 4G. With 4G, the speed on your phone whilst tethered to your laptop is good enough that you could use both at the same time, perhaps streaming a movie on your laptop while checking out Facebook on your phone.
4G is actually so fast that you can tether three, four, five or more devices, and still have them all running YouTube videos or whatever else you want to do. So, if you're out with friends and you all want to get online, just tether using 4G.

What is 4G? one might be wondering and asking him/her self as to whats really this 4G is and whats that it does?

Short for fourth generation, 4G is an ITU specification that is
currently being developed for broadband mobile capabilities. 4G technologies would enable IP-based voice, data and streaming multimedia at higher speeds and offer at least 100 Mbit/s with high mobility and up to 1GBit/s with low mobility (nomadic).

4G is an IP-based and packet-switched evolution of 3G technologies (such as WCDMA, HSDPA, CDMA2000 and EVDO) that uses voice communications. A number of technologies considered to be 4G standards include Long Term Evolution (LTE), Ultra Mobile Broadband (UMB) and the IEEE 802.16 (WiMax) standard.

While 3G is defined by ITU as IMT-2000, IMT-Advanced is being studied by ITU as 4G. IMT is now used as the generic name for 3G and 4G.

The good: The fourth-generation Apple iPod Touch, winner of CNET's 2011 Editors' Choice Award for portable media players, has been upgraded with new software and a boost in capacity.

The bad: The fifth-generation iPod Touch offers a larger screen, faster processor, and superior photo and camcorder quality.

The bottom line: The fourth-gen iPod Touch is Apple's second-best portable media player, with a price that will help you forget about No. 1.

Editors' note (May 30, 2013): Apple has discontinued this version of the iPod Touch and replaced it with a $229 16GB fifth-generation model that boasts a larger 4-inch screen and faster processor, but has no rear camera. The 32GB and 64GB fifth-gen (2012) Touch models (with rear cameras) also remain on sale for $299 and $399, respectively.

If you're buying an iPod Touch for someone, this is not the iPod he or she wants. Trust me, people will want to open the box and see a shiny, colorful new fifth-generation iPod Touch. Your loved one will know the difference. The fifth generation has a wider screen, and a noticeably updated design, and is an all-around more smile-evoking device.

But if you're buying an iPod for yourself, there are plenty of things to recommend the fourth-generation iPod Touch. The most obvious being the $100 you get to keep in your wallet.

Priced at $199 when configured with 16GB of storage (twice what was offered last year for this price), the fourth-generation iPod Touch may be the most unappreciated product Apple sells. Its features, design, and performance were enough to earn it our Editors' Choice Award two years in a row, and the latest updates included with iOS 6 only help to refine an already excellent product.

Apple's iPod Touch maintains all of the core features that have made the iPod great over the years, such as music playback, photos, video, podcasts, audiobooks, and games. Many of the new marquee features found in the iPhone 5 and fourth-generation iPad 4 are also here, including iMessages, iCloud support, an HD camcorder, and FaceTime video calls.

The back of the 4th-generation iPod Touch includes a camera lens in the upper-left corner, along with a pinhole microphone.

How to jailbreak iOS 6.1.5 on iPod 4th Generation

Apple iPod Touch (4th generation)

Two 4G candidate systems are commercially deployed: the Mobile WiMAX standard (first used in South Korea in 2006), and the first-release Long Term Evolution (LTE) standard (in Oslo, Norway and Stockholm, Sweden since 2009). It has however been debated if these first-release versions should be considered to be 4G or not, as discussed in the technical definition section below.
In the United States, Sprint (previously Clearwire) has deployed Mobile WiMAX networks since 2008, and MetroPCS was the first operator to offer LTE service in 2010. USB wireless modems have been available since the start, while WiMAX smartphones have been available since 2010, and LTE smartphones since 2011. Equipment made for different continents is not always compatible, because of different frequency bands. Mobile WiMAX is currently (April 2012) not available for the European market..

In telecommunication systems, 4G is the fourth generation of mobile phone mobile communication technology standards. It is a successor to the third generation (3G) standards. A 4G system provides mobile ultra-broadband Internet access, for example to laptops with USB wireless modems, to smartphones, and to other mobile devices. Conceivable applications include amended mobile web access, IP telephony, gaming services, high-definition mobile TV, video conferencing, 3D television, and cloud computing.
