I have just put a prepaid 5 g Sim card ( Vodafone) and I am impressed with the download,up to 300 MBS on the ookla app amongst others, but I am left wondering if 5 g uses more mobile data than 4 g ??
Does anyone know?
No, it shouldn't use more data. It's just a standard.
I have just few areas with test 5G in my city, so I don't really have experience with 5G. According to what I read, yes, 5G uses more battery. And it's normal, few years should pass until there will be no difference in battery consumption. Same story was with 4G, this is remember clearly - 4G was draining battery faster on my htc one m7.
There is one scenario, where 5G will use more data - speed tests.
Ok that's good news thanks 😌
No it definitely doesn't use more data, its just faster :D
Thanks 😊 I do think it drains the battery faster though, but I'm still experimenting so I will see what this week shows.
What do you think? Does 5 G use more battery or not?
Simply, please, take it as a joke:
When you're pushing (the) " pedal to the metal" your engine fuel consumption is increasing? :) Anyways, disregard the humor, simply once you have a poor signal on your mobile network, you may expect battery drainage. Still, the processor energy efficiency may be involved, so you don't have to point the 5G only. And the modem also and the "standard" (mmWave?) . There is no magical formula and the 5G it is only at the beginning :) Someplace. Some are projecting 6G.
I have heard that about 6 G I think,if memory serves me correctly and at my age it doesn't most of the time, it was the USA that was toying with 6 G . To tell the truth 5 G may be a little faster but not so much that I really notice in my day to day life. I'm not a gamer though so maybe it pays for gamers but personally I turn off 5 G most of the time. I hate charging phones, always have
