Before choosing a 5G mobile phone, you should know the following 10 small questions:

1. What is 5G
2. What are the advantages of comparing 4G
3. Is there anything bad about 3.5G
4. What can we do with 5G
5. Current mainstream 5G baseband chips

6. Soc processor with 5G baseband
7. Difference between plug-in and integrated 5G baseband
8. Independent networking and non-independent networking
9. Difference between single-mode and dual-mode 5G
10. Single-mode 5G mobile phone may have network and no signal?

1. What is 5G?

5G, the fifth generation mobile communication technology (5th generation mobile networks or 5th generation wireless systems, 5th-Generation, referred to as 5G or 5G technology) is the latest generation of cellular mobile communication technology, which is also 4G (LTE-A, WiMax), 3G (UMTS, LTE) and 2G (GSM) systems.

2. What are the advantages of 5G over 4G?

The advantages of 5G are mainly three aspects: high network speed, low latency, and multiple links.
High speed
5G theoretically has a transmission speed several hundred times that of a 4G network, and can reach a transmission speed of tens of gigabytes per second. It can easily be applied to panoramic video transmission, with clearer images and smoother images. Can bring better immersive effects.

Low latency
The 5G network delay time will be reduced to less than 1 millisecond, and it will play a pivotal role in areas such as video calling, industrial IoT, unmanned driving, and commercial drones.

Multi-connection
5G networks connect people to things, things to things, etc., and use network technology to integrate urban facilities, home life, and logistics status into one, truly achieving the “interconnection of all things.”

3. Is there anything wrong with 3G?

The answer is definitely yes. There are three main problems with 5G: low coverage, poor stability, and high power consumption.

Low coverage
Because 5G has a millimeter wavelength, the coverage distance of a 5G base station is about 200-300 meters, which is far less than the coverage area of 2G to 4G networks.

Poor stability
Because 5G uses high frequency and has poor penetration ability, it often stands in the downstairs and there is a 5G network, and the signal entering the room is 0.

High power consumption
If the mobile phone is always on the 5G network mode, then when people move around, the mobile phone is always looking for 5G signals, and the mobile phone will consume much faster power than 4G.
Secondly, most 5G mobile phones currently use external 5G baseband chips, which is also a factor in large power consumption.

4. What can we do with 5G network?

In the first 1-2 years of the 5G network era, there is only one of the greatest conveniences that 5G can bring to us: high network speeds. Faster download speed, no pressure to load high-quality pictures, and better peripheral experience with VR peripherals.
As for low-latency and multi-connection, in the first two years of the 5G era, there will not be much reflection on personal terminals.

5. the current mainstream 5G baseband chip

At present, Huawei and Qualcomm do 5G chips well in the world. In addition, Samsung and MediaTek are also catching up.
Huawei Barron 5000: Using a single-chip multi-mode 5G module, it can implement 2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G network standards in a single chip. It is the first in the world to support NSA and SA networking.
Qualcomm Snapdragon X50: adopts 4x4MIMO antenna technology and 256-QAM high-order modulation technology, supports NSA non-independent networking mode, and is compatible with 5G / 4G / 3G / 2G networks.

6. What are the SOC processors currently equipped with 5G baseband chips?

Qualcomm: Snapdragon 855, Snapdragon 855Plus
Huawei: Kirin 980, Kirin 990

7. the difference between plug-in and integrated 5G baseband chip

External 5G chips: Qualcomm 855, Qualcomm 855Plus, and Kirin 980 all use external 5G chips, which have the disadvantages of high heat generation and high power consumption.
Integrated 5G chip: The Kirin 990 5G uses an integrated 5G chip, which is much better in terms of heat generation and power consumption.

8. Independent networking and non-independent networking

Independent networking: Standalone (SA). 5G base stations are deployed based on the 5G core network. End-to-end synchronization will support 5G network communications.
Non-independent networking: NSA (Non-Standalone). The 5G base stations transmitting signals are still connected to the 4G core network. In the entire network architecture, 5G base stations and 4G base stations coexist. Some communication functions still need to be implemented with 4G base stations. Therefore, it is called “non-independent” networking.

In short, the 5G mode of SA independent networking and NSA non-independent networking both have the advantage of high network speed, but NSA non-independent networking does not have the characteristics of low latency of 5G networks.
That is, “SA independent networking” takes precedence over “NSA independent networking”.

9. 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.

Note: Dual-mode 5G is the development trend of 5G mobile phones in the future. It is better than single-mode 5G mobile phones.

10. Is it a card change or a mobile phone change?

There is no need to change the phone card, you need to replace the latest mobile phone that supports 5G networks.
