[deleted post]Yup, all for the clicks.

Lenovo Z6 pro a lot better to buy if they make it global.

And I do understand physics thank you. The high frequency bands can't go through physical objects as easily as low frequency bands. And since companies and condo promoters love to build tall buildings with concrete, that's a problem in densely populated and downtown areas. Yet here I am, walking surrounded by such tall constructions, with a solid 5-bars LTE signal. So please stop taking everyone for idiots when you aren't any smarter

But, the solution is to cram a lot of short range antennas in between all buildings. Just like you have to if you live in a large house. More antennas eliminates dead spots. Boosting a large, distant antenna still won't fix blocking by steel and concrete.

I never encountered this issue and nobody here ever has. I'm browsing frequently our carriers' forums and this complaint is very infrequent.

Read ANY forums for ANY network provider in the world and you'll see my point.
Example: Three Ireland shut down their forum a few months ago as they simply got tried of responding to the same complaints, over and over.

Sounds like your country has terrible LTE networks

i can't understand why people is so crazy for 5G, it's a complete fake, they offer high speed connections but you can just use a few GB of data, it's a fake like 4G

What they actually mean is "more miniscule parts of some cities will get 5G". Considering the range is 1/3 of a mile there would have to be a cell tower on every single city block. 5G is a marketing scam.
