5G is the next generation of internet like LTE, 4G, 3G, and 2G. But better. The only catch is that you need a 5G phone to access and use 5G networks… so the question is, are 5G phones worth the cost?? And if they are, what 5G phones are available? https://www.whistleout.com/CellPhones/Guides/5g-smartphones
How do you access 5G
How do you access 5G? Well you need to have a plan that allows you to connect to it, AND you also need to have a 5G capable phone. Because most of the carriers are offering free 5G access with most of their unlimited postpaid plans, that’s not really a problem. The main problem is buying a 5G phone… they’re expensive, and are they even worth it right now?? NO. I don’t think it’s worth it right now and this video will explain why. Let’s take a look at the 5G phones available right now…
Where is 5G?
So where is 5G? Well, the three main networks have all started rolling it out in select cities and states and chances are you live in a state with *some 5G coverage.
AT&T 5G could be for you in these 5 states!
New Jersey 67.14% is covered with 5G
Rhode Island 39.25%
Verizon has so little 5G we’re not highlighting states with the most coverage, we’re looking at cities with the most coverage.
SALT LAKE CITY UT
New Jersey 74%
Which carrier has the most 5G?
Right now T-Mobile has the most 5G with 30% coverage in the united states followed by AT&T with 6% coverage then here’s a shocker US Celluar has .4% 5G coverage and Verizon is coming in last right now with .0014% coverage. SO if you want to use 5G right now, T-Mobile or AT&T is your best bet. If you want to learn more about the plans that offer 5G i’m linking those in the description.
To recap… 5G is available but ONLY in select cities. So to the average person I say you don’t need to invest in a 5G phone UNLESS the 5G phone has cool features you like. You shouldn’t buy a new phone strictly because it has 5G… at least yet. Although i will say that if you live in a city where 5G is accessible, it might be fun to have a 5G capable phone! But remember most 5G is only available outside since most 5G frequencies can’t penetrate buildings…
As phones continue to grow with technology, it makes sense that manufacturers would add in 5G…. So although you don’t need 5G yet these high-end phones are also coming with the best cameras, screens, and battery life we’ve ever seen. Although year old flagship phones are still VERY relevant and amazing devices and if you go with them you’re saving money and getting a great quality device. So bottom line… don’t buy a 5G phone strictly because it’s 5G. Buy it for the camera, the battery life, and other features you care about.
