    Hi @Ignacio Contreras. I was wondering what the possibility would be about making all 5G phones compatable to work over any 5G network? I currently own the OnePlus 7 pro 5G. Apparently now with the merger that happened between Sprint and T-Mobile my phone is considered obsolete within the T-Mobile 5G community. My phone is barely 5 months old. It would be nice if their was a way to have a software download that would help this. I love my OnePlus device and Sprint does not currently have any others to upgrade too. Thank you for considering my question.

    Maintaining a superior internet speed is important, buying the phone necessary is not.

    Hi @Ignacio Contreras

    My question is to you. As you know the current 4G connectivity in india is it good to launch 5G when there is no full coverage of 4G in India. Even 4G is there but the speed we get here is below average.
    I want to know your opinion.

    For a normal user which generally watches videos on internet, How is 5G going to enhance the experience since 4G speed or LTE is enough to stream 1080P?
    Also, since the main focus is to reduce latency in 5G( as far as I know), How is this gonna change anything for normal people(except online Gamers) who generally don't perform much work on internet which requires reduced latency?

    My question is for @Sat K
    • In current scenario of 4G, when the mobile equipment is not in the line of sight of the nearby tower or inside a closed room, there is a noticeable call drops. Will this be solved with powerful network of 5g?
    My question for @Ignacio Contreras
    • Considering 5g to be a heavy impact on battery, how is Qualcomm managing the battery battery drain during stand by.

    My question:
    Ages have gone by disputing the king in between the :
    Wired vs Wireless Networks.

    How does 5g (as a latest evolution in technology) beat the Fiber to home and Wifi 6 combinations in terms of:
    - Reliability
    - Speed
    - Latency
    - Trade Offs
    - Infrastructure costing

    Thanks in advance,

    We all know the hype of threats related to rediation by 5G technology, but besides that wil this technology will be limited to Urban area only?
    Or is there any hope for rural parts of world!

    As they are the one who needs to be connected to World! For education, basics medical help and for ease of there life.

    Thanks for the opportunity,

    I've heard that the frequency used for 5g can interfere with the functions of the human body in many many ways. Can you explain why we would move forward with it, if it's going to hurt us?

    in Indian version 5G has only n78. where as other like Europe it has N1 N3 N7 N28 and N78..

    In website it says hardware support 5G n78. so it clear not upgrade by software

    India is a subcontinent has vast land area and good resource for your expansion and definitely it will have multiple bands for 5G in different area. so in this case how we relay on this 5G what you providing. that means 5G phone for India a marketing gimic not futuristic. we appreciate that you are giving us a good price, but reducing the features like this not futuristic.

    India telecoms like Airtel and Jio have still not been in their phase 1 deployment of 5G.. Is it logical for indian customers to buy 5G devices when technology is yet to be launched in near future and not available at this time and in 2021 Qualcomm will have there updated chip available in the market with better performance numbers what do you think

    Hi @Ignacio Contreras

    A little background - I live in India.

    I'm currently living in an area with a lot of traffic and a high number of residential buildings and so. I currently use a 4g network, and my parents do too - but all of us are on different providers (Jio, Airtel, Idea)

    I switched to 4G somewhat 2-3 years ago and till now - I haven't once received high network speeds as people get in foreign with the same technology - nor have my parents on different providers.

    My question is very simple.
    What difference will it make to incorporate 5G network in countries like India, when 4G is still so technologically behind? If 5G is launched, why should I use 5G instead of 4G?

    A lot of phones are supporting 5G now - but what's the point if we're not going to get to the point where 5G actually seems useful?

    Imo - it seems like catching upto 5G will take years for a country like India, so how do you plan to accomplish your vision for 5G at the earliest? Not only India but I think many other countries are still trying to catch up to 4G.
