in our country, the price of 4gb ddr4 is really expensive that i could buy 8gb of ram or if you really look time a 12gb is possible

so which is better
4gb ddr4 or 8gb ddr3?

DDR4 and 3 are not interchangeable, you need the RAM that fits your motherboard. What is the full system spec?
yes i know they have different ram socket, i just want to know the difference. is it worth it ? or maintaining to ddr3 is already good? cuz if i upgrade to ddr4, my memory size will surely be reduced

currently my ram is 16gb

Depends on the rest of the system and what it will be used for. Generally an entry level current generation system using DDR4 will outperform an old high end (for its time) DDR3 system but without full system specs this is a rough generalisation.

What is the purpose of this inquiry?
DDR4 will not run on your motherboard.
You apparently have 2 x 8gb which is excellent for most purposes.
You mention 12gb which will not be sold in a single kit.

As far as speed goes, there is little difference between ddr3 and ddr4 ram at the same speed.
DDR4 might be better in that the default voltage used is lower.
