Tech specs: okay, let’s talk 5G… here’s the gig – it’s not a big deal right now. You do not have to run out and upgrade your cell phone to a $1000+ phone later this year because it is branded 5G.
Why? Well, my friend, 5G is a technology that will only be available in certain limited markets for the first year of its release. The big three (AT&T, T-Mobile/Sprint, and Verizon) all admittedly will not be prepared to have 5G available across the nation until around 2022. It is a slow rollout, and the average cell user won’t even notice the difference from 4G LTE – which will still be available for a few years until 5G is available nationwide.
Don’t get caught up in all the 5G hype, your phone and 4G are going to be the most reliable choice for the next 1-2 years.
This is all to say, save your coins, you DO NOT need to replace your newly purchased overpriced smartphone. The “rollout” in 2020 of 5G is purely for the purpose of sales at the end of the year – when Samsung and Apple are slated to release their 5G Capable flagship upgrades.
