I haven't really compared, since I long ago settled on using my arms for my
7+ and just continued to do so with the G4.  Putting it on the upper arm my
yourself really isn't that difficult, although it does take a bit of
practice.  (It actually seems a bit easier to manage with the G4, but I'm
not sure if there's actually any difference in releasing the inserter, or
if it's just a matter of being used to it)
