The 10 best 5G mobiles of the moment (2020) - The Happy Android

5G is here. During the last year and a half, operators have done their homework and 5G networks are increasingly widespread globally. Although having a mobile with 5G at the moment is not going to change your life, it can be a more than interesting investment for the future in a few months.

4 types of 5G

When talking about 5G connections, we must bear in mind that there are - or will be - something like 4 types of 5G: those of low, medium, high band and the DSS. Low, medium and high band connections range from very large coverage but not much speed, to very beast speeds but with very little actual coverage.

The “DSS” technology for its part refers to the way in which transmission waves are shared between 4G and 5G. Something that will help telemarketers reduce the capacity of their 4G networks while 5G "flourishes". Which will be a wonder for users with 5G devices, but a potential danger for longtime 4G users.

The OnePlus 8 is one of the best smartphones of the moment, and considering that it incorporates 5G as standard, it is also one of the best 5G mobiles. Connectivity aside, one of the biggest points in favor of this OnePlus is its large 6.5 / 6.7-inch AMOLED screen, with a density of 513ppi and a refresh rate of 120Hz that makes everything move much more fluid.

Of course it also mounts a latest generation Snpadragon 865 processor and a RAM that can reach up to 12GB in its most powerful variant.
