A Day On A 5G Phone: Fast, But Finicky

    Ever since the 5G hype train kicked into gear my friends at Android Central have been saying the same thing: you should not buy a 5G phone in 2019. The networks aren’t mature enough; the phone selection isn’t broad enough; it’s just too early. Well I found a way to prove them wrong. There are actually a few people who should buy a 5G phone. The thing is … they all pretty much live in a handful of buildings in Chicago. Join me for MrMobile's 5G Hands-On from the windy city!


    MrMobile's 5G Hands-On was produced in Chicago, IL with a Samsung Galaxy S10 5G review unit on loan from Samsung for the day. Samsung provided travel and lodging accommodation for some members of the media, including MrMobile; no other compensation was requested or afforded. Neither Samsung nor Verizon Wireless were given editorial input or an advance copy of this video.

    Honestly I wouldn't even get the S10+ 5G for the 5G. I'd get it because it has a bigger battery and bigger screen. Meanwhile does everything the s10+ does

    So.... every building is going to need a 5G repeater inside because the 5G "tower" outside can't penetrate even the windows?

    I find 5G is very safe and very fast and the network that I'm using also take voice calls over the 5G network right now here in Australia. The voice calls are incredibley clear over the 5G network.

    Right but what does this mean? For this to actually work, there's going to have to be an insane level of microwaves pulsing through our entire city, and body, all the time. Everywhere.

    Are we really supposed to just take that? And meanwhile various governments and political bodies have been pumping *public funding* into 5G, to artificially "roll out out" (which is the term they keep using at the WEF, Brookings, EU talks about it, all these nefarious think tanks that are deeply entrenched with the political elite) as fast as possible. Hell, we're even seeing obvious propaganda now about how it's important to get 5G up and running so we can keep up with China. That it's a national security concern. As if it's some kind of arms race. As if being more like China (as far as top down government involvement in the development of wireless infrastructure) is a... good thing?

    Seems pretty obvious to me that these political bodies just want to have control over the internet, and they see 5G as a means to do this. Since the market would probably take a long time to get to this point (is there really much of a demand? would consumers really be willing to eat the cost, the trillion dollar cost, of revamping the entire wireless grid just to have faster download speeds? the answer is no, and were it not for this public investment and this push by political bodies, the telecom cartel wouldn't have a profit-seeking interest in pushing this stuff out so aggressively, they would take a huge loss and it would be a huge risk given how we don't even have many devices that are even compatible with this). You hear the world's political elite talk about 5G and they are just giddy with excitement over the surveillance and control potential of having one-network-to-rule-them-all. I think they've taken some of this "internet of things" consumer tech and are now pushing beyond where the market and the consumers actually want it to go. And I think it's because a centrally controlled and monitored network that's connected to so much of our lives (just listen to the 5G propaganda - it's all about how the internet *just has* to be everywhere, that everything is going to be "smart", that self-driving traffic grids are around the corner, that this is the brave new world) - offers all kinds of potential for state control of the populace. One minute they're talking about how we need public investment in this tech, how important this network is going to be, how we should artificially boost the industry so that arrives quicker so we can compete with China, and then the next they're talking about how this will put people out of work, how we need more government programs and UBIs and whatever else so the people who are left behind by the brave new world can be taken care of (dependent on) the state...

    It's all too convenient. And I'm going to be honest the people talking about the massive health risks of such concentrated microwaves being all around us all the time are making a lot of sense, and that their points aren't being taken seriously in the national media or the global discussion about 5G is very concerning. It definitely feels like we've moved well beyond the point of consumer innovations that are actually meeting demands for things that make our lives easier, that make us freer and wealthier, and moved into a top down restructuring of how our society works, under the guise of a "technological revolution" that they'll say was unavoidable and natural and that all their initiatives and expansions of power and control over these networks are just them adapting to the new society. Just listen to some of these think tanks - 5G and the future they keep telling us it's bringing with it has become the justification to totally change our system of governance, to change peoples' ideas of what their liberty and their rights are, to start forcing people to rethink the role of government in their lives...

    Maybe people think this is crazy, but give it a couple years and I think I'll be proven correct on this one. It's to the point where upon learning that my city is the first city in my country to "roll out" the 5G network, I'm seriously considering finally getting out of the city and moving to a more rural area of the country. If they are going to be jacking up the microwave levels that much in the cities, and if this is meant to usher in a new era of network-controlled property, I don't want to be around to see it. I'm going to take my human-driving combustion engine car and my gold bars, and try and find an oldschool job away from the Borg and as far away from any 5G towers as I can manage. This doesn't seem like it's going to end well at all. It was fun while it lasted, but humans aren't meant to live like this, and massively central political authorities are never going to restrain themselves as far abusing this kind of tech in the interest of control and suppression.

    It's not surprising to videos like this! Considering videos likewith Mark Dice with 100 oz of silver in one hand in a candy bar in the other and at least 96% of people take the candy bar over the 100 oz of silver. Amazinghow bad things are going to get with the level of willful ignorance there is going on all around me I never cease to be amazed and it's not the elites and the mass genocide they have planned for everybody in all the forms that it takes already which are already endlesslike the twelve thousand percent increase in autism over the past 12 years and the increase in childhood leukemia over the past 15 years of ten thousand percent you think just those two things area reason to be suspicious of anything thrown at us by multinational corporations but no the goyimnever cease to amaze me it's way more shocking and astounding what people are willing to accept and how little they question things and just videos like this how it's just OK it's there's no issue here we just have a bunch of frequencies that were patented as weapons on military contracts millimeter bandwidth frequencies that are used for crowd dispersaland everything is fine there's the water is safe to drink Verizon and other phone companies aren't vertically-integrated into and weaved into a collectively cooperative effort amongsta tiny group of people who are beyond psychopathic it's just not there none of it is there there's no plan to wipe out 95% of us by 2030there's no patents from the US patent office to prove what everything really is there's no documentsfrom the United States government under the freedom of information act and from the United Nations openly admitting all of it all of it's just it's stuff you know you it's it it's just in the movie stop it conspiracytheorist there's nothing to see here we only have an entire generation of kids that can't even do basic math problems but yeah everything's all good good just keep being a good little sheeple and get mowed over and run down by a eugenics agenda just let it be known that if you knowingly and willingly and premeditatively are aware of what you obviously should be aware of regarding this technology. If so then you're going to be punished for this! Just like everyone else who's trying to be a part of pushing this thing like this nothing going on with it that's of any threat. When it has a potential to completely destroy the entire species and it has the potential to be the catalyst to bring in a electromagnetic pulse wiping out the powergrid in allowing the central bankers to get away with their final robbery of the mass sheeple population without anyone being in any position other than just trying to survive the terrifying circumstances that will surround such an event.if you're not knowingly and willingly and premeditatively a part of this agenda, then, you will be spared from eternal if you're fooled yourself and you I just seriously uninformed then you will just cease to exist because of that very soon like the other 95% of total head in the sand non critical thinking masses of absolute cannon fodder. Just be aware and let anyone else you knowwho is in on glamorizing this technology what the consequences are going to be for themif they knowingly and willingly understand what really lies behind this.you'll burn in eternal excrement for such an act of treason. And if that's not the case I just feel bad for you just like most of the other ones who have no critical thinking ability no mind of your own just totally programmed. What a shame! what a shame! what a shame! Jerry Springer is on yeah yeahs to transvestites are about to fist fight bahhhhh! meanwhile, they are making plans for the order, of the new world, about to bring the lambs to the slaughter 🙈🙉🙉🙈😴😴😴😉🧐🤔😕🤫🤫 dumbasses

    You're getting a bigger display, more cameras, bigger battery, faster charging and 5g support. For a couple hundred more dollars which is going to be on a payment plan 9 times out 10 which translates to an almost unnoticeable increase in monthly bill.

    I walked into a tmobile to check out a the new Samsung and sales clerk was all.
    well we only get 3g speeds sometimes only 2g . However, we only sell 4g plans. so what color galaxy phone do you want?
    I laughed and walked out. Trillions of dollars a month? Only if you let them rob you. Yeah smartphone's are cool when they work but if they are selling you speeds they tell you up front they will not deliver. Don't sign anything.
    Thanks for the video though. They are fun to watch.

    The NWO and their agenda is to reduce the population down to about 500 million worldwide, 5G is the same sterilising cancer causing weapon as chemtrails, GMO's, water flouridation, chemicals in food and Monsanto. You unawakened matrix zombies spend your pathetic lives being entertained with whatever filth and poison the Elite hand to you and accept it like little babies. You deserve what is coming.

    Reasons 5g can fail.
    You're a foot away from the tower range
    Your phone is too hot
    You're behind glass or leaves.
    You've turned around the corner.
    I'm excited, don't get me wrong... But I'd much rather have a Nationwide stable, and fast 4g network. Why the hell do I still connect to Canaida's networks? Why the hell do I get 10Mbs for second on Sprint 4g? Why is it that the only place that gets great coverage is a big city? THIS IS BULLSHIT!

    Updating building codes to require all buildings above a certain height to have exterior nodes would be a solid move. Nodes a pretty cheap so adding them to any building beyond a two story family home wouldn't even be noticed in the price of construction.

    If you don't like 5G, definitely you wouldn't like 4G. The 5G network can only be better or an upgrade to its predecessor. Have you ever heard someone say they want to go back to 3G because they don't like 4G? Absurd.

      Don't be ridiculous. 5G still uses low-powered non-ionising EM radiation, which was used for 4G, 3G etc. Look at the correlation between brain cancer incidence and cell phone usage. There is none.
