4G technology can offer more value in a trial than a phone or a car, according to a study from the consumer research company FourFour2.
The company looked at data from 1,000 smartphone owners and found that owners of the Galaxy S8 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus would save $3,000 a year in the long run by purchasing the new technology.
And it found that those with a four-year warranty would save an additional $1,000, and those with the same warranty would pay an additional 1,300 per year.
4G was originally introduced by Verizon as part of the 4G LTE network, but now the network is rolling out nationwide.
While 4G is still in its infancy, it has been widely praised for reducing peak data usage and making phone calls more efficient.
For those who can’t afford a new phone or car, 4G phones and tablets have been popular options for people looking to get a bit of extra juice.
Samsung, the global smartphone leader, is launching its own 4G-enabled smartphone in the US and Europe next year.
