I'm getting LTE connection but it jumps to 3G when I'm not in LTE area. Why don't I get 4G? My previous device was getting 4G when I was not in LTE area.

If your previous device was an android 4G meant something else then 3G on iPhone!

LTE is 4G. Some carriers/manufacturers erroneously referred to improvements in 3G technology as 4G.

At most I would call that is 3.5G. Calling it 4G is an outright lie.
