    Just curious never saw HSPA on my old phone on the same network. Either it was LTE or 4G.

    Yes why is that? My old phone on the same network either it was LTE or 4G. Different phones maybe? I thought HSPA was on TM network only.

    I went under Network settings and noticed nothing was checked on the type recommended. So i checked LTE, i wonder if that will make a diffrence? Also i noticed the Data roaming isnt checked either, does that need to be checked also?

    I think it's semantics. I believe when it says H, it means it's on what US carriers call 3G or 4G. From what I understand, what US carriers call "4G" is really just an upgraded 3G. So the "H" means HSPA (3G) or HSPA+ (4G). I don't think it displays a difference between the two.

    Next up, it shows LTE.

    So, the Nexus phones show:
    G = GPRS = 1G
    E = EDGE = 2G
    H = HSPA = 3G *or* HSPA+ = 4G
    LTE = LTE = 4G LTE

    Again, what US carriers call "4G" is nothing more than upgrades 3G. LTE is the true 4G.

    Can I force my phone to stay on a lower connectivity, seems to hop between 4g and H quite a lot. Im guessing that consumes power; switching and all

    Under Cellular Networks in Settings. Preferred Network Type

    My phone switches a lot too. And lately even on LTE it is super slow. It takes about 45 seconds to load an instagram video, that is if it even does load it.
