What to Consider When Buying a 5G Phone


Screen size – Screen size and quality are one of the main features to look for in a 5G handset. On the larger hand, most 5G phones are with the bulk averaging about 6 inches. The most popular screen technology is OLED and AMOLED panels that provide dense, saturated colors and inky blacks. Higher refresh panels are normally 90Hz or 120Hz, making it appear smoother to render animations and transitions. For games that rely on fps, this is especially useful.

Some companies such as Samsung and Motorola use a version of OLED to produce folding phones that can bend, either snapping closed in a clamshell or expanding into a tablet-sized unit. Larger screen size makes for greater multimedia and utility, but it can also add to the bulk unless it is a folding screen. Folding phones tend to be a little more costly and the screen a little bit more delicate.

Processor– Most 5G phones seem to be flagships, which means that along with plenty of RAM they have a Snapdragon 865 or 865+ processor. This enables them, taking full advantage of 5G data rates, to do multitasking, gaming, and productivity. However, you can get 5G phones powered by a Snapdragon 765G processor or one of Samsung’s Exynos variants if you are looking for a more affordable handset. They may not be as efficient as the latest and greatest Qualcomm chipset, but outside of benchmark testing, most individuals will not experience performance consequences.

Features – On most 5G phones and flagship phones, for that matter, a certain set of features have become popular. Waterproofing with IP68 enables phones to be submerged in water and withstand dust exposure. Wireless charging allows Qi charging pad connectivity, reverse wireless charging allows other compatible devices to charge your phone, and fast charging to quickly top-up. Some phones allow microSD storage, while the option is missing for others.
