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.

    I’m perfectly happy with my 4G speeds of 50mb speeds for all included price with calls and data 25€ per month. 300mb speed of 4G cost 59€ a month so i think it’s not worth it for now.. this is in Finland

    Stability is far more important than speed. Anyone that's been an in emergency will tell you that. 5G will be a massive mistake if they cannot make it more stable than 4G LTE; especially since many areas still have coverage problems. Carriers are chasing the next big money making scheme. If they really wanted to revolutionize the world, they would ensure everyone has access to broadband internet first, then worry about increasing throughput. It's not about changing the world, or revolutionizing anything. It's about increasing the numbers in the bank accounts of executives and shareholders. 5G is a scheme; not a technological advancement.

    Most 5G will not be mmWave it will be low and mid band and S10 5G only does mmWave.
    You should look into how Tmobile doing 5G way better than Verizon.

  • latuman

    Because you just find yourself having only five minutes to download a 2 gigabyte game. I encounter this daily. And as the network is sold to everyone in the city, it stops running as fast and we are lucky to get 100mbps and we are back to square one with much poorer battery life and thousands of dollars wasted. Is there nothing they can't sell to people?

  • Zubin Grant
    Zubin Grant 18 days ago

    Why all the extra hard work you ask? Because this is meant for the future. When 4G came out I thought it was unnecessary, but we grew through it.
    Think about what's coming. Google's Stradia for eg. allows for realtime game streaming without being restricted with clunky gaming laptops or chained to a desk with a PC.
    And then there's IOT devices. They'll need a high range but low speed network and I bet cellular companies are planning to substitute the 4G network for that when they migrate everyone to 5G to clear congestion.
    Lastly, there's competition. These companies are afraid that if they don't advance with progress, others will & they'll capitalize on the opportunity.
    The distribution industry, be it music record companies or ISPs, realise that the competition is cutthroat & they've to maintain stronghold. Because it's a job that anyone can do & doesn't leave much for exclusivity.
    For eg., Elon Musk's Starlink plans to beam internet through space via low orbit satellites, that is one helluva fear factor considering once setup, such a constellation doesn't need much in maintenance.
    All of these factors pose existential threats to these companies. And thus they have to continually innovate, and that's why despite a huge reduction in data transfer costs, your phone bill keeps rising.

    5G seems like the most fake-hyped thing in tech news to come along in a while.
    It's something that a tiny, tiny percentage of people will actually benefit from.

  • Spooksville Scoob

    5G seems so terribly unnecessary for the average individual.
    I download stuff at 5+mb/second using 4G. Unless I am torrenting or downloading a new, large program, etc., I cannot see it making much of a difference on the consumer end.
    I've*not once* gotten excited at the prospect of 5G. And I hate the idea of added 5G radiation. In general, the idea of 5G-radiating units being placed at every block, is NOT a good thing. It sounds like a nightmare that, 50 years from now, we will look back and say, "We had no idea how dangerous it was." (Like how we treated smoking..doctor's all agreed it was fine for decades and decades, even recommending brands. )
    This is also going to jack up the price of cell service for the Everyman, while companies scramble to cover the entire globe with 5G units.
    All for what?.... there's very little that maxxes out a good 4G connection. Hype and BS.

  • adriaan van harrick

    Does not sound promising, that short reach (or range if you will) and that it requires that many connection points. Feels like it is too early days to install this type of technique, like 5g is too different to 4g in bandwidth and frequencies used and I for one am not convinced for a need to exceed 4g, for me that does just fine. In the US, there is a much more urgent need to provide people with regular access to the Internet that is of acceptable quality.
