    Default Asus ZenFone 6 or Moto G

    I currently have a Nokia Lumia 521 I like it and all but i don't want a windows phone anymore so im trying to decide which to get amd on top of that i have to make sure it works on tmobile's "4g" network because the Lumia521 has 4g connectivity. I know that ZenFone 6 ain't out yet so for those of you have the moto g on tmobile does it have 4g connectivity and is it fast? is the lack of no SD card slot annoying ??

    The US GSM Moto G works on T-Mobile's HSPA+.

    US GSM Model (AT&T and T-Mobile)
    GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
    UMTS/HSPA+ up to 21 Mbps (850, 1700 (AWS), 1900 MHz)

    None of the phones you mentioned have 4G (LTE). T-Mobile called their HSPA+ 4G, but it's really 3G.

    With that said, the Moto G have support T-Mobile 1700Mhz 3G band, which the Zenfone lacks. Therefore you will get T-Mobile 3G with the Moto G on a much wider area.

    Aside from that I still recommend the Moto G over the Zenfone from what I've seen. Except the Zenfone does have microSD support and likely a better camera.

    If you really want to get technical, no carrier has a true 4G network yet, since 4G is defined by the ITU-R as 1,000 Mbps.

    The main point is HSPA+ isn't LTE. Which for know is what the carriers and regulators are defining 4G.
