    We always want smarter and improved technology, but should take care of our mother earth. Because this is our first responsibility. Thanks.

    Absolutely right.

    Instead of using new technology to give us good hardware with great functions for a cheaper price, like they did with the Oneplus ONE they just jump the hype train again to push users buying some products no one really needs.
    And worst of all- this product is not finished, at all. Using a seperate modem chip makes this phone draining battery more than needed.
    Why not marketing it as a limited edition prototype for people,who needs some hardware to push up their egos and wait with mass production until next snapdragon SoC s are available with integrated modem and way less energy consumption?

    Qualcomm already presented this chip, check out here:

    Or do they need us users as beta testers for the new technology,like microsoft is doing it for the price of data security?
    ( Some Win 10 insiders lost their data due to bad coded software? )

    @Dale F.

    Give us a reason.

    Give us a killer application that shows us the needs of this new technology.

    Tell us, why we should buy a way more expensive smartphone with -almost- outdated technology ( Separate 5G modem chip ) for a 5G network existing just on some hotspots in big cities.

    And we still do not know, how much money providers will charge for 5G, since they surely will get their investions get paid back as fast as possible. So not only the phones will be more expensive, the data plans will probably be more expensive, too.

    TL: DR:

    Why should we buy that phone? Why????

    don't worry that time will get 5g WiFi devices in mkt , will use that ...no need to change the phones

    At this point I don't really see any reason to have 5G. Probably I would change my mind if I would live in a country with a high speed internet. As a Londoner, I don't see possibilities for local mobile operators to increase capacity, since in this would involve investments in new tech. At the same time you can just advertise that your new network is 5G and 99% people are still dumb enough to believe and want that.

    Lower latency.
    People are quite comfortable to wait for couple of seconds of delay to see pages rendered, YouTube videos played.

    A gaming point...
    Sadly, there are just 100 people in London who would be crazy enough to install serious games, and even less of those to play seriously over mobile network. (fraction of the fraction).
    Reality it's sad: companies (false)advertise their speeds and tech as Superior, while using ancient Mammoth shit like phone wire to bring internet to homes. And people buy it. I would not believe that companies can't bring latencies lower than 10ms using adequate equipment, connected to 4G antennas.
    My point here is that 5G is bringing no benefits for 99.9999%.

    Personally, I'd rather advertise 5G as investment into autonomous car future. (Again, this future will not happen and soon.)

    High speeds:
    Guys, if average mobile network operator would use high bandwidth channels to deliver full advantages of 4G, average Joe would think he is experiencing 6G network.
    Do companies transfer data over mobile network or rather using cable? (higher frequencies lead to higher signal degradation). Common fiberoptic cable is much cheaper over distances.

    My personal conclusion: I love to see progress, but advertise 5G as higher benefit for mobile users, I rather see as false advertising.
    On paper, it is better. In real life - nobody sees difference.
    Advertise 5G as smart car infrastructure.

    update: article on 5G "benefits". (open signal can't see the difference.)

    The thing I worry about with 5G is the data consumption. If ISPs don't increase their caps like Verizon and TMobile, then we are going to just burn through our data that much faster.

    A software update can't change our 4G phones into 5G. You will absolutely need to change phones if you want 5G.

    There is no such need to create 5G course.
    The explaination is only in 2 lines.
    1) 5G is faster internet, which will allow google and financially associated companies to keep track on your private data faster, load ads faster and then users get fast internet.
    2) You will need to buy 5G enabled phones.
