Is Lte worth the lower screen size (4 vs 4.5) vs the l9? Just how much faster is it?

It is worth it! I have this on metroPCS running on Tmobiles network (im in one of the areas they have that on). This one has some neat little features the L9 doesnt. Also the camera is slightly faster with a few more options, better battery, & it is super fast etc. Also the sound quality is better & I think the screen maybey also slightly more vivid.

I would personally prefer a larger screen for this case. But if it's between, say, a 4.5 and a 5' screen then it might be different - i might go for 4.5 with LTE. Because, 4 inch is definitely too small to me.

Your review of this phone didn't do it justice. It should have gotten at least the same score or better then the L9 due to the things I mentioned above. Your reviews I think are subjective on who's doing it. John V seems to rate things lower for example then others.. I know one things for sure too it sure runs better on Tmobiles network then the Sprint unit you tested.
