4G. Why does it matter by the way?

doesnt, i just wanted to make sure it was designed to do so as i am used to the devices that come from the carriers that says lte when its connected to lte. so i thought it was a bit misleading and wanted to make sure that it wasnt just me

Isn't 4G and LTE the same.
Unless I'm missing something here.

From http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2399984,00.asp

"There are so many technologies called "4G," and so many ways to implement them, that the term is almost meaningless. The International Telecommunications Union, a standards body, tried to issue requirements to call a network 4G but they were ignored by carriers, and eventually the ITU backed down. 4G technologies include HSPA+ 21/42, WiMAX, and LTE (although some consider LTE the only true 4G of that bunch, and some people say none of them are fast enough to qualify.)"

Notification label aside, the phone supports LTE bands used by all Canadian carriers.

Hey I can't find a thread related to the zenfone other than this one soo... how is the phone exactly ? More specifically, how's the camera? Is it any good? Is it comparable to an LG G3 or something? I'm currently on a note 3 and i want an upgrade.

It says 4g in the status bar but when you go to settings > more > cellular networks, for me it says for my Access Point Name that I'm on LTE.
