5G isn’t ready for me

This article originally appeared on Engadget by Mat Smith.

Over the spring and summer, the first 5G networks lit up over the US, with all the major carriers offering a 5G service of some kind. However, there are still only a few compatible phones to go around, the best of which is probably Samsung’s Galaxy S10 5G. It’s practically an entirely new phone. Samsung substantially upgraded its S10 with more cameras (six) and a third more battery than the standard S10 — more capacity than the S10 Plus, too. It’s an impressive phone on paper even before considering that it’s made for next-gen 5G networks.

It’s been a few months since Chris Velazco tested 5G networks at launch in Chicago, so it was time for another network test — this time, on the other side of the Atlantic. The plan was simple enough: pit the Galaxy S10 5G against the Galaxy S10 OG in London, UK. Vodafone provided both phones, so we could see how the phones fared on the same network.
