Advantages of 4G on Oppo A71 (2018)

4G outruns the preceding generation in terms of speed and latency. It grants 10 times higher downloading and uploading internet speeds. The average 3G speed is around 5 Mbit/s, and the average 4G speed is about 50 Mbit/s.

In terms of latency, 3G grants a 100 ms latency, while 4G has half of that, meaning 50 ms, which is better because latency is a time delay between the sender and the receiver. Although the difference is only 0.05 seconds, it presents an enormous advantage in live interactions, like gaming experiences and live broadcasting.

VoLTE is a protocol that gave 4G a boost. It allows users to make better voice calls and use the internet while talking on mobile. These advantages make Oppo A71 (2018) 4G technology a great tool in your pocket.

The absence of that symbol means that you are not using 4G at that specific moment, and it doesn’t signify certainly that your phone doesn’t enable 4G. And that takes us to the second way.

Check your phone specifications on the manual, or in the device package. If you don’t have any of them you can still check that on the official site (or any other trustworthy website) using the device name or model number.

Another way is to check the settings: Go to your settings and look for 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 doesn’t support the technology.
