  1. agree hindi naman masyado need natin ng 4g lte, kasi sa ibang location wala pa naman 4g lte. badtrip nga e, nagapply ako ng 4g lte network kapag nasa ibang area ka na wala ng signal.

  2. yan din gamit ok naman sya at madaling gamitin at dalin. mabilis lang sya malowbat kasi maliit lang mAh nya. dala lang lagi extra bat or powerbank.

  3. nagpurchase din ako ng modem wi-fi 4g lte na, sa ibang area medyo walang signal its either H+ or E nakukuha mong signal at bumabagal din.

  4. tama hindi sya lte may 3g hspa+ lang mas mabilis sa 3g. pwede na rin sa pag-download tutal hindi pa naman tayo 100% lte sa bansa natin.
