Undoubtedly, in the nearest future, 5G will definitely become the mainstream network in the mobile market. Just as 3G replaced 2G and 4G replaced 3G, the wheel of history is the increasing number that preceded the alphabet “G”. This is the inevitability of technological progress, and no one can stop it, because mankind is looking forward. The question now is, if you are planning to get a new phone, is now the best time to buy 5G phones?
In fact, 5G has flooded in like a tide, and both Chinese and western countries, 5G network layout and construction are carried out non-stop. Even the UK, which ultimately did not choose to cooperate with Huawei, conducted a 5G outdoor live broadcast last year, showing their determination to develop 5G.
In July, People’s Daily Online also announced relevant data on China’s 5G market. At present, 5G applications in the Chinese market are developing rapidly. After only half a year in 2020, it will exceed 100 million. This is a very proud data.
Is Now The Best Time to Buy 5G Phones?
Currently, in china, 5G has two data worthy of reference. The first data is the number of 5G devices in the country. Simply put, the number of 5G mobile phones sold has reached 66 million. Of course, it may have exceeded 70 million. The data published by People’s Daily Online is mainly based on the data provided by the three major operators, that is, users who have already used 5G packages or have connected to 5G networks.
In this way, 5G has slowly integrated into our lives. At this time, many netizens may be entangled. Is it the best time to buy 5G mobile phones? After all, we should not be too far behind the mainstream of society.
Whether or not to buy a 5G mobile phone is indeed an annoyance for many. They feel that if they do not buy a 5G mobile phone, they will not be able to keep up with the development of the times. If you buy a 5G mobile phone, it does not seem to be of much use, and 5G mobile phones are expensive. Therefore, there is always hesitation in choosing the time to buy a 5G mobile phone.
3 Factors or Situations That Affects The Purchasing of 5G phones?
For those who are hesitant to buy 5G mobile phones now, there are three main situations.
Situation 1: Some Consumers Have Extreme Desires for Latest Technologies
In the first case, there is an extreme desire for 5G networks. They are very eager to experience the new communication technology, even if there is no network, they will find a way to experience it, or create conditions to use the 5G network. For such users, if they didn’t get a 5G mobile phone, they would not be fulfilled.
Also, it can be said that there is basically no need to give them a reference. After all, as long as they have the opportunity, they will definitely buy a 5G phone. These categories of people, Pay more attention to the new product releases of various brands of mobile phones.
Second Factor; Consumers who Have 5G Networks but no 5G Phones
The second situation is the consumers who have 5G networks but no 5G phones. With the acceleration of the 5G network layout this year, many first- and second-tier cities have 5G network coverage. For such users, they have the conditions to use 5G mobile phones but do not know whether they need to be equipped with a 5G mobile phone.
For this set of users, if they are eager for 5G mobile phones and the economic conditions are still favorable, it is recommended to own one. However, if the desire for 5G mobile phones is average or not high, and the economy is not allowed, it is recommended not to start.
On the one hand, the current 4G network has basically met most of the people’s needs as the speed is very fast. On the other hand, the current output of 5G mobile phones is still relatively small, and the price will be relatively high. By the end of 2020 or 2021, the price of 5G mobile phones will fall further. At that time, it should be more popular.
Scenario 3: Should you Buy a 5G Phone in Areas Where There is no 5G Network Coverage?
In the third case, some may ask, if there is no 5G network in the local/rural area, can one buy a 5G mobile phones in advance? In this case, it is generally not recommended. Of course, if the economic conditions are relatively good, the 5G network will eventually be available everywhere just like the 4G.
The real changes that 5G brings to people are more at the level of the Internet of Things, such as the next self-driving cars and unmanned delivery helicopters. After having 5G, the conditions for launching will be more mature, and the changes to the mobile phone itself will be more limited. Compared with 4G, the 5G network makes the biggest change to the mobile phone mainly due to the speed of the network, and there is no disruptive impact on the use of the functions of the mobile phone itself.
In conclusion, the best time to buy 5G has nothing to do with the number of users, but with your own mood. It indirectly also has to do with your budget.
