I was really tempted yesterday to drive into town and pick up a S10+. Having used a note4 since it was first released, the device has lasted me well but I feel is starting to show its age. 


I was all set to go then it dawned on me about 5G compatibility. Hmmm no 5G support; I hesitated! 


Should I be holding off purchasing a new phone, the note4 will last... until 5G handsets are more main stream?




Or are we way off getting 5G

The little things make the biggest difference.

Even as someone who likes to sit on the edge, I'm not opting for first gen 5G.




First gen 5G will be purely 5G NR (uses 4G signalling) and atleast based on initial impressions, it looks like a newer chipset will be required for 5G SA (standalone)


I'm personally more keen to opt for something like OP7 or Sony Xpedia 1 as they have some insane configurations for LTE chains (I would not expect an issue with hitting close on the 1G mark on some of sparks towers on those devices)
