Verizon has exclusively partnered with Samsung to sell their Galaxy S10 5G phones for the first time in the United States. While the phone might make its way to other carriers in due time, it is going to be Verizon exclusive for the time being. You can purchase the phone for an affordable monthly cost whereas the pricing of the phone outright will set you back by $1,299 and it is available for purchase right now.
Even before 5G was officially revealed and launched in the country, there was some massive speculation that it will revolutionize the way people use smartphones. The network connectivity is available in select cities now and it looks like it will eventually be provided with full strength all over the country. According to the latest report which was directly released by Verizon, the company has managed to get a whopping speed of 1Gbps on the Galaxy S10 phone.
They even posted a video on Twitter to show how strong their network is in available cities. Soon, Verizon and other major cellular providers in the United States plan to cover all major cities so that 5G network could become the new norm. The post was made by a representative of the company named George Koroneos and the video is proof that you can get such amazing speeds without being tied to a cable network for Gigabit speeds.
Most people will instantly feel the difference when using a 5G smartphone when it comes to streaming high-quality, possibly 4K content on Netflix, downloading large game files on a phone or the proposed idea of Google Stadia. According to Google’s vision, you will soon be able to play console games like Need for Speed and Assassin’s Creed by streaming it directly to your smartphone.
In theory, you will soon be able to download PUBG which is close to 1.5 gigabytes in just 26 seconds. Over an entire season of a television series on Amazon Prime got downloaded offline to the phone in just 93 seconds. Soon, it will be seamless to download so much content before you could catch a flight and it works like a charm.
The only drawback is that similar to how routers have coverage issues when you switch to the 5GHz band, the 5G network is pretty limited when it comes to providing full strength to a large area. If you are not close to a connectivity tower or an extender port, you may not enjoy the said speed. Cellular networks still have a long way to go. Verizon uses the 28GHz network, AT&T makes use of 39GHz but both these levels are weak when it comes to penetrating obstacles.
