Prior to the launch of 5G, the current standard in mobile network technology was referred to as 4G LTE. LTE in this case simply stands for Long Term Evolution and is actually the standards-based part of 4G, a term which by itself represents a number of different technologies and speeds. For more on the differences between 4G and 3G in Australia, you can read our comprehensive guide to 3G/4G technologies.

How to compare 4G LTE phones
4G support is only one part of the equation when comparing smartphones. The other key feature you'll want to pay attention to is network category speed, typically represented in the form "Cat 5" or "Cat 16".
Network category speeds reflect the maximum download and upload speeds of a mobile phone, regardless of what network it's connected to. If those speeds are lower than the maximum 4G speeds available on your mobile network, that phone won't be able to take full advantage of Internet performance possible on 4G.
Nowadays, anything above Cat 12 is likely to be fast enough to meet most Internet needs.
