Mobile technologies have upgraded enormously, One of the main developments is the emergence of 4G technology. It’s a word that you’ve certainly faced in your daily life, but what is 4G? And is Oppo A16s 4G capable? We are going to answer these and other questions related to Oppo A16s 4G technology in the following article.

is Oppo A16s 4g enabled?

Yes. 4G is one of the Oppo A16s built-in attributes.

How can I know whether the Oppo A16s is able to use 4G or not?

Nowadays, it is unavoidable to own a 4G-capable phone, because most internet uses need a good internet connection. To know whether the phone is 4G enabled you can use multiple means.

An easy way when you have the device in your hand is just turning on the mobile data, if the Oppo A16s 4G data is activated, then you will notice a symbol at the top of the screen, in the signal bar. It might be 4G, 4G+, LTE, or LTE+ according to your carrier.

The absence of that symbol means that you are not connected to 4G at that specific moment, and it doesn’t signify definitely that your phone doesn’t support 4G. And that leads us to the second way.

Check your phone criteria on the user guide, or in the device box. If you lost both of them you can still check that on the official site (or any other reliable website) using the device name or model number.

Another way is to check the settings: Go to your settings and fetch network mode, usually as follows: Settings > Cellular (or Mobile Data) > Cellular Data Options (or Mobile Data Options). If your phone supports 4G you will find 4G option or LTE. If you don’t see 4G or LTE, then your smartphone isn’t 4G enabled.

Advantages of 4G on Oppo A16s

4G was developed to grant a more reliable internet connection on phones, and that’s clearly what it did. 4G technology provides much improved downloading and uploading speeds than 3G.

The average 3G speed ranges from 1.5 to 9 Mbit/s, while the average 4G internet speed is between 15 to 90 Mbit/s, it can achieve as high as 900 Mbit/s.

Another significant criterion of 4G, is its low latency. We can present latency as the time needed to transmit data or the delay between the action and the actual response. Lesser latency means a better user experience. 4G Latency is better than 3G by double. The average 4G latency is 50 ms.

With the aid of the VoLTE standard, 4G now grants better voice quality in phone calls and gives users the ability to browse the internet while making calls.

All of these advantages combined with the low cost of 4G expanded the use of Oppo A16s 4G technology, to include better video conferencing, online gaming, and other real-time interactions.

Get to know 4G bands in the Oppo A16s

4G and other cellular networks use radio waves to transfer data. These waves have different lengths and frequencies. To avoid interference between signals, governments and the ITU regulated which regions use which frequencies for 4G.

Each region has been designated certain frequency intervals called bands. Band number 7 and band number 28 (as an example) are used on a global scale.

What you should know as a consumer is that each cellular operator permits specific bands according to the area, and different phones enable different bands. So you have to make sure that your Oppo A16s supports the bands provided by your local mobile operator.
