What is 5G?And 10 Best 5G Mobile Phone in 2020

What is 5G?

The fifth-generation mobile communication technology (English: 5th generation mobile networks or 5th generation wireless systems, referred to as 5G) is the latest generation of cellular mobile communication technology, which is an extension of the 4G (LTE-A, WiMAX-A) system.

The main advantages of 5G over 4G

High data rate, up to 10 Gbit/s, faster than the current wired Internet and 100 times faster than the previous 4G LTE cellular network.
Low latency, less than 1 ms, and 4G is 30-70 ms.
The disadvantage of 5G
Compared with the 4G network, the 5G network has a small signal coverage area and low wall penetration performance. For example, the previous cellular network partition may span several kilometers, but the 5G partition is only about one block in size. This leads to the need for more 5G base stations in the same coverage area, and the cost increases accordingly.

The difference between plug-in and integrated 5G baseband chip

Plug-in 5G chips: Qualcomm 855, Qualcomm 855Plus and Kirin 980 all use plug-in 5G chips, which have the disadvantages of high heat generation and high power consumption.
Integrated 5G chip: Kirin 990 5G uses an integrated 5G chip, which is much better in terms of heat generation and power consumption.
Independent networking and non-independent networking
Independent networking: SA (Standalone), based on 5G core network deployment of 5G base stations, end-to-end will simultaneously support 5G network communication.
Non-independent networking: NSA (Non-Standalone), the 5G base station transmitting the signal is still connected to the 4G core network, and in the entire network architecture, the 5G base station and the 4G base station coexist, and some communication functions still need to be realized by the 4G base station. Therefore, it is called “non-independent” networking.
In short, the 5G mode of SA independent networking and NSA non-independent networking has the advantages of high network speed, but NSA non-independent networking does not have the characteristics of low latency of 5G networks.

Important: “SA independent networking” has priority over “NSA independent networking”.

The difference between single-mode 5G and dual-mode 5G

Dual-mode 5G: supports both SA independent networking and NSA non-independent networking;
Single-mode 5G: Only supports NSA non-independent networking.
Focus: Dual-mode 5G is the future development trend of 5G mobile phones, which is better than single-mode 5G mobile phones.

To sum up, it is the mobile phone that integrates 5G chips and dual-mode 5G first. With this knowledge, we can better choose our own 5G mobile phone. Next, we will introduce the more mainstream 5G mobile phones on the market:
