But buying newly launched 5G phones is too expensive and you are paying for the features which you are not going to use it.

I guess people want to be future ready, because people like me use one smartphone for al least 3 years. And 5G will be practical in sometime in India.

What is the need for more speeds now? Speed is not the limiting factor now, data is. 4g speeds are more than enough to watch HD video content but one can’t afford the data. I have seen many switching to SD quality to save on data. On a mobile phone why does one need more higher speeds really?

Sure the network reliability comes to play with 5G but would only require more capital which would have to be again borne by the customer. I feel it is all being done to increase consumption of services.

5g may be a reality by end of 2021. So instead of buying 5g, it would be more sensible to not invest in expensive 4g phones.

haha, impossible
India can’t afford 5G, even US is unable to afford 5G.
The infrastructure for 5G is extremely expensive and it requires many towers like the constant spaced street lights.
Only densely packed high GDP cities can afford 5G.
3GPP has a 5G standard which is followed worldwide. 5G has mostly to do with latency and other than that, even if the speed is high, it is still 4G.

5G has very low latency. It is a good for gaming, autonomous driving, VR, etc. But for movies and entertainment? lol Its like riding a helicopter to your local kirana shop which is just a few metres away.

We indians will not be getting the expensive mmwave band setup, but the better coverage and cheaper 5g with dynamic spectrum sharing. So we will be seeing speed above 100mbps but not much above a Gbps. And 5g will be reality in 2022, and to answer the op question I would say the latest 5g modems are built for better 4g service too (if you understand mimo/rd and stuff and live in remote area with only wireless as an option). And by 2022 new phones will be emerging for proper 5g usage.

5G wont arrive bro, it has not arrived in US cities.
5G is about latency
5G is about latency
5G is about latency.
Speeds have nothing to do with 5G
Speeds have nothing to do with 5G

But what you say is right, we will get better speeds but it will still be 4G

Is this happening? I guess the reason is price point.

Now, if you going to buy phone around 20k or more. You expects to use for a longer period. And you would not want to change or upgrade the device. So it’s better to think about future technology when buying such expensive phone.

(Around 20k phone is also expensive I guess)

For phone below 20k it’s an additional feature to attract customers. It also good here to think about future technology even it requires extra payments of 1k to 2k

Chahe 5G le aao ya 5KG kuch dino ke baad wahi 2G waali speed pe browse karni hai. Youtube 360p mein bhi ruk-ruk kar hi chalani hai. Twitter par TRAI aur DOT ko tag karke complaint raise karni hai par ghanta farak nahi padna hai kuch.
Haan is naam par Ambani aur Mittal phir rate jarur badha denge aur handset makers aapko naya latest technology wala phone pakda denge aur hum middle class phir apni marzi se apni jeb katwaane market pahuch jayenge.

It is just waste of money… People buying 5g phones now will eventually switch to new devices multiple times till they get to use the 5g technology. People who go for any new technology regardless whether they use it or not, they tend to get bored easily so will switch the devices and thus waste the money. This is just a new trend with the generation, want to grasp their hand on new tech first. And companies just profit on this buying pattern of the users.

Exactly! 4g speeds are more than good enough on respective sim networks. Instead of investing in 5g, I think investment should be done to make 4g better and efficient where speeds are pathetic.

Why people are buying 5G phones? Because they are morons.

Why people have bought Chinese phones in loads? Because they are morons.

Why people have clapped, beat thalis? Because …. Welk by now the theme should be clear.

5G is LMFAO thing. I mean eventually we all will use 5G. Because technology goes forward, today 5G, tomorrow 10G and so on. Most hilarious thing is, did we ever have proper Edge speed? Or 3G speed? Or does anyone think we actually have true 4G now?

Another factor is to consider here is the sheer user base in our country. I don’t think it’s actually feasible for any company to provide true 4G speed to all the users at all times. An insane amount of infrastructure is needed for that, which we can’t afford.

So anyone buying a phone in 2020 on the basis of 5G is either 80 years old, who is going to use the same phone till death, or like said at the beginning, a complete moron.

Why people are buying 5G phone when it’s not yet launched in India?

People don’t (at least the majority?) particularly look to purchase a 5G phone right now..its just that some of the options they consider are 5G compatible

is it a good idea to invest in these 5G phones before the launch of 5G in India ?
If you’re spending extra premium just for 5g..then definitely not a good idea to invest in these 5G phones

Why are such phone are being released now ?
Why not?
You get XYZ-Ready features for many electronics so if someone is particularly looking for such options, they would consider purchasing them
These are just add-ons…
+ Now-a-days the hardware for major phones remain the same all over the world..w/ or w/o 5G inclusion for specific markets, it hardly makes a difference & some processors like (Snapdragon 765/G & MediaTek Dimensity Series) have integrated 5G modem..it would be outright silly to exclude a feature thats already comes with the CPU (unlike the flagship CPU Snapdragon 865…costing few bucks extra)

Also there’s one 5G phone promoted aggresively past couple of weeks, if you’ve observed closely if there’s one stressed factor about the phone that hasn’t been heavily marketed..its the 5G capability
Even the e-tailer partner too completely ignored the 5G factor from its official product page because its so unnecessary for a tech that hasn’t got launched yet!

Promoting these chinese phones, when there are India China border disputes.
Irrelevant to the topic! Why is this even here? smile
