Lol! Go to Korea and Japan. It's all LTE.We are finally catching up. Europe is behind. My old HTC Touch Pro 2 is a world phone....iPhone 4s is a world phone....but to most consumers...they don't need a world phone....they will benefit more from LTE network rather than being able to use it overseas. Btw, it's cheaper to use VoIP via wifi than buy a sim card with a data plan when you are traveling abroad. If your phone has wifi...then it's the best world phone.
Most consumers dont care about LTE. They care about data.
Korea and Japan have LTE.. but the bands are different than what we use here in US.
A phone that wifi doesnt make it the best world phone. A phone compatible with the local bands makes anywhere in the world it the best world phone.
Very true. That's why pentaband phones are world phones. I believe LTE is still in its baby days. Eventually we will have a 4G chip that can accommodate most of frequency bands.
try to use your pentaphone in Korea and Japan. You will see how expensive it is to use your world phone there. It's cheaper to rent a local phone at the airport. Cheaper to use free wifi that is available almost every block.
