But season 4 was awesome.

No it wasn't.

How so? Give me an explanation.

Rather than have digimon partners, the kids turned into their digimon.
They also didn't have nearly as many digivolutions as the earlier seasons which limited what they were capable of.
From what I remember the 4th season never included a threat to the real world as the first three seasons did.

The kids turning into Digimon allowed them to actually get in the action and fight their enemies head on as opposed to letting a Digimon partner do the work. Takuya and Koji had As many evolutions as Agumon and Gabumon (Agunimon, BurningGreymon, Aldamon, EmperorGreymon. Lobomon, KendoGarurumon, Beowolfmon, and MagnaGarurumon) Not to mention Susanoomon who was similar to Omnimon. And Lucemon was after the real world, promising it to Crusadermon and Dynasmon before betraying them and going after it in his Shadow Lord form.

Turning into their digimon got rid of the emotional attachment that the humans and digimon fostered. Just look at the end of the 3rd season, neither party wanted to leave the other, but they had no choice.
The kids were able to get in on the action in the earlier seasons. The first 2 not so much but in the third season all of the kids are able to fuse with their digimon later in the story.

True. However, this allowed the season to focus more on the Digi-destined, showing their personal issues and how they've grown as people by the end. Look at Tommy. He turned from a spoiled, crying kid to someone who's willing to defend the kids who'd bullied him before without a second thought. And then there's the episode where Takuya had an epiphany and learned that being a leader is more than simply ordering an attack and that he needs to care for those he's commanding. Or J.P. fighting his dark self to learn that he does have friends who care about him. Or Zoe who learned a similar lesson. Or what about Koji and Koichi, who met as enemies (when Koichi was Duskmon) and by the end became inseparable brothers. True having a Digimon partner showed friendship and all that. But focusing on the Digi-Destined alone allowed for a unique way to let the characters grow.

That may be true, but the digimon partners also helped to show the growth of the digidestined. In the first season when Tai forced Agumon to digivolve and he became skullgreymon. He was afraid to have Agumon fight after that but eventually grew out of it.
The digimon partners helped the digidestined to develop compassion which was necessary for them to save their world and the digital world.

True, and I'm not discounting the use of Digimon partners to help the Digi-destined grow. I'm just saying not having Digimon partners also has great ways of showing character development.
