Should One Turn Off 5G
One must understand that 5G is a very experimental network type, even with progress. People have reported 5G signals to be at times worse than 4G when it comes to actual internet speeds. 5G is also very thermal intensive and can make your phone uncomfortably warm very soon.
5G is not as efficient with the range as 4G was and even with the slightest barrier a 5G signal becomes really bad. 5G starts to really underperform as soon as there is a slight loss in signal. This means that if you do not have a good 5G range near you, your phone will keep losing battery and heating up in search of a better signal.
Is 5G Unsafe?
There are certain worries when it comes to 5G. In the USA there is a strong protest against 5G due to some research that shows that 5G towers may interfere with flight systems on commercial flights. However, there is no actual proven science that 5G is harmful to flights and can cause crashes. Moreover, in Europe, the 5G rollout has begun and there have been no issues with flights till now!
5G is yet to reach its pinnacle
5G rollout has started but it is yet to become as stable as 4G is all across the globe. Hence, it is recommended to use 4G till 5G becomes more stable and prevalent. This will ensure that you never waste your battery for no reason.
