Actually 3g and 4g caused many biological hazards in India my ecosystem like (small birds and insects all dying up )due to 3g and 4g short range higher energy frequency waves which their small biological body can't take up I beg gsmarena to research about it and stop 5g expansion,I am seeing 5g tower installation workers have time limit to work near towers in US, wear big bio hazard suits Research about it and stop more short range higher energy frequency bands for mobile connection it kills all organisms. Please stop 5g

Didn't they say that about 4G too? I guess you still using a 3G device and 4G has died right?

If you so worried about health issues I suggest you dont buy mobile phones because for years people have been saying they cause cancer or are one of the causes of male infertility.

Vodafone is Selfish arrogant brand, in India they said India doesn't need 5G until 2025 and stopped Jio from early deployment of Jio 5G in 2020 by complaining to TRAI, utterly selfish brand

Saying India doesn't need 5G until 2025 and ironically deploying 5G in UK in 2020

CompactPhones5ever, 14 May 2019The whole 5G meme has about the worst cost/benefit ratio out of ... moreHey, it's to allow you to livestream simultaneously from your phone, tablet and 8K VR camera, while watching 8K HDR videos on your phone, tablet, PC and TV, all at once. Everyone does that but it shutters so much in LTE-A networks that 5G is needed.

Andy93, 14 May 2019Good news that they're not going to charge a premium for it. See... moreI never bet against Apple as you never know

Apple have always had 2020 ad the date the first date their 5G iPhone is launched

Already in Switzerland one network is already 5G

In the UK like the 4G rollout 5G will be in the top 5 cities and then UK
ALL networks will have 5G capable phones

4G phones cannot be upgraded to 5G by modifications or software update and no 4G phone will even come close to 5G internet speed.

In all related articles e.g. 260,000 subscribers in South Korea, so 260,000 new phones non of which are iPhones

The hardware bottlenecking aside as it may be pushed aside in the future, but even under perfect, theoretical condition where no HW bottlenecking exists and you get the 100% lab-controlled speed, you save what, a tenth of a second compared to 4G? When average Youtube video length is 4.4 minutes?

CompactPhones5ever, 14 May 2019The whole 5G meme has about the worst cost/benefit ratio out of ... moreNobody is forcing anybody to buy a 5G device, if you are happy with a 4G device then there's no reason to buy a 5G device. Although streaming YouTube etc is clearly going to be a benefit of high download speeds.

Good news that they're not going to charge a premium for it. See how the other networks respond. I bet EE will charge extra as they're ripoff merchants

The whole 5G meme has about the worst cost/benefit ratio out of all inventions in past couple of years. I understand it has its purpose for stuff like self-driving cars, but for users it's just a reason they get extra 100$ slapped on their phone pricetag. The difference in browsing speed is absolutely negligible and as for the downloading speed of 10GB/s - literally what for? So I can download for whole 10 seconds before my phone's memory is full? Or am I supposed to buy 5G for the future when I'll be downloading 8k movies, while manufacturers universally agree that going over 2k on a 6" screen is a balloon (and most manufacturers stick to 1080p in longrun anyway)?

Can't wait until we find out that 5G causes serious neurological damage (there're strong hints of that already) and we'll be shutting this expensive meme down.
