Are there other 5G cell phones out there? Well, yes, there are, and there will be more and more as this technology becomes more and more prevalent. Some others to consider are the Oppo Reno 5G, the Moto Z3 5G, the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 5G, the Honor 5G, Sony’s Xperia 2 and Huawei’s Mate 30 5G. Be sure to check for compatability with the cell services in your country/area before buying! This list is not exhaustive. New models will be coming down the pike as time progresses, so keep your eyes and ears open.

It appears that Apple will be a bit delayed in introducing a 5G-ready cell phone, possibly not releasing one until sometime in 2020, so if you are a diehard iPhone user, hang on. It will be coming. So whether your cell provider is Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile or any other major player, they will all be embracing the new technology and will carry 5G phones going forward. It would be unthinkable, it would be suicide, for any cell phone telecommunications company not to make the conversion.

There will also be many new phones that will NOT be 5G-ready, so shop carefully. Whether in a brick and mortar store or online, ask questions. Make sure you will be getting a phone that is specifically 5G. What I am sharing here are the best of the most available, advanced and ready-to-buy devices available from the major players in today’s telecommunications field.

With these phones you will be able to get connected faster and stay connected more reliably. You will be able to game, download and view video content faster and without screen freezes or lost connections. Your device will interface more dependably with other devices. GPS will respond without pauses and will be more up-to-the-second regarding road conditions, etc.

This graduated worldwide rollout will take some time to become widespread, but make no mistake. It will be touching every area of everyone’s life in every country and in multiple ways. The most basic contact you and I will notice is in the area of cell phone products. Remember, though, that 5G will be a massively large new way of all communications being networked. The future is rife with applications yet to be realized. From IOT (the Internet of Things) to banking to educational systems to home monitoring to package tracking to all forms of transportation to – well, you get the idea.

This technology is coming faster than most people know, but investors are already lining up to get in on the huge potential for profit by buying into various phases of the burgeoning industries involved.

      Yes, it just came out and is 5G ready. I had someone ask me a few days ago, before Note 10 came out and I had to tell them to wait. Now, they don’t have to.

    is there the coverage for 5g yet?
    i know in the uk there wil lbe even more holes in the remote places.
    the Huawei Mate X looks very interesting, but i am concerned about the lifetime of the screen being bent, do you know how well it works?

      Hi, Phil. It is, of course, up to your service providers to provide sufficient coverage for 5G. Even as with 4G there will most assuredly be “dead spots” where you will not have 5G signal. But unless the spot is also dead with your 4G, your phone will automatically switch back to the 4G signal in that area. As far as bendable or foldable screens go, the main problem seems to be that the screens will be more susceptible to scratches than rigid screen phones. Most non-bending phones use very hard, glasslike scratch resistant coatings. Folding screens are made of layers of clear specialized plastic. The Samsung version, which may be called the Samsung Galaxy Fold and will be available in a 5G model, has a screen that folds together, protecting the screen when closed. Huawei’s Mate X has an outward folding screen, meaning that the screen will go from the large squarish screen to the folded configuration with the screen being on the outside of the phone. To me, this is less desirable since that means the screen surface makes up the outside shell of the phone and will therefore be much more vulnerable to damage. Time will tell since these phones either have just been released or will soon be released, depending on where in the world you live.

        Upon further research, I have found that the Huawei Mate X has been given a revised design. What I said before about the external screen has been changed. The screen is now an inward folding screen, just like the Galaxy Fold. There are some differences in how they are configured, so I recommend checking online and finding a video that shows both folding phones in operation so you can see firsthand what I am talking about. I don’t think the Mate X will be available in some countries, such as the United States, so that may influence your selection as well.

    I would love to say I’m up on all the 5 G technology but when I bought the Samsung Galaxy S9 I swore it was the last phone for at least a year. Great article informational and content is relevant. Continued success.

      That is quite alright. I know some people will stand in line for hours to get the newest, latest models. If you aren’t one of them, join the club. Neither am I. Depending on where you live and how soon 5G will cover your area, you have time. There are some advantages to going ahead and getting a 5G capable phone now, but if you want to hang onto your current phone, that is fine. You won’t be losing signal or anything like that. In fact, in one of my blog entries I mention that you will benefit from a partial “boost” just from being in a 5G area. No, you won’t be using 5G, but it will help a little. I also make the case for reasons to convert as soon as you can or, in your case, whenever you are ready.

    Thank you very much for compiling this in depth list of the best 5G phones around. I think your review is correct and up to date. I have used the Samsung S10 and I can vouch that it is a very good product. Motorola appears to be strange on your list because I don’t think they are still of high demand in the smartphone market.

      Actually, Motorola seems a bit strange to me as well, but for a different reason. They are still quite healthy in the cell phone department, but the way they add features to some of their “Z” models is by incorporating an additional “snap-on” back. This device is called a “moto”. There is a moto for adding additional speaker power for instance. And there is one for select “Z” phones that will add 5G capability. I need to change my descriptions of their phones to clarify that the Moto Z4 is actually a Z4 with this added moto. It also should work with their Z3 as well. So back to your main comment. Motorola may not seem as prominent as LG, Samsung, etc., but they do still sell a decent number of cell phones. Thanks for your input!

    This is a great post. I’ll probably bookmark this page because I am looking for a new phone soon. Right now I have been running with the Samsung Galaxy S8 and I’ve been loving it. But my phone is slowly being worn down and getting slower, so I am definitely looking for an upgrade. I’m thinking about the Samsung Note 10 or S10+. When I was looking at the Samsung product page, I noticed that there were multiple options including a 5G option and also a ceramic back version. Do you know if the ceramic version also comes with 5G?

      Here is what I have found: The Samsung Galaxy S10 5G will weigh as much as the S10 ceramic, but will not be available in ceramic; however, if you purchase the S10 5g through Verizon, it will be available in a Titan Gray finish. Other service providers will carry the phone later, but I get the impression the Titan Gray version will only be sold through Verizon. I hope this helps.

    Great post! I didn’t really was aware of how many phones were 5g ready until I read your post. Though I don’t think that I will get a phone that is 5g ready anytime soon but maybe I’ll get one in the future. One question I do have is what 5g ready phone do you think is the best one to get?

      First of all, keep in mind that some of the models I covered are country/continent/region specific and may not be available to you, depending on where you live. But as for the top 6, I personally (and remember this is an individual’s decision) am gravitating toward one of the Samsung phones, either the Galaxy S10 5G or the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G. I say this even though my last few phones have been LG models. In saying that, I don’t want to infer that I am dissatisfied with LG or their V50 ThinQ 5G. I may even change my mind about my choice. 

      In short, any of the current models should be just about equal. If you like Motorola’s Z series better, go for it. If you are more comfortable with, or more familiar with LG, take the plunge and get the V50 ThinQ 5G. The main thing is to do your homework and if a phone has something that attracts you more, such as a larger, nearly borderless screen or more camera lenses, rest assured that getting a phone that meets your needs is all that really matters. I don’t think there is a “stinker” in the bunch.

    Hello, 

    Thanks for a great post on 5G phones. I don’t really trust Motorola Moto Z4. Do you think the same way or I am mistaken?  I really like your review of Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G. Looks like perfect Note for me: it has a pen and a long-lasting battery, and many other useful stuff inside.

    I didn’t hear anything about Huawei Mate X. Is it working good? How about insurance on it?

    Overall, your article is beneficial and informative. I start thinking of buying the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+5G (maybe because my husband has a Samsung Galaxy S9 and he likes it very much).

    Thanks again for the post!

      I am going to assume your reluctance about the Motorola model(s) comes from lack of familiarity. I understand that and can identify with it, but keep in mind that Motorola lovers would probably strongly disagree with you. The one element that is just “different” about them is that they require a “moto” to be attached in order to pick up 5G. They have motos for various other things that have nothing to do with 5G. See my post on the subject. 

      I guess the idea of needing to snap on an additional device is a little off-putting to me, but I have not heard any negative feedback about the way the moto works.

      The only info I can offer on the Huawei Mate X is that it should be comparable to the other top models. Remember that Huawei is a real giant in the industry in China and Asia. If you are in a country where it isn’t available, it is a moot question. I have no useful input about insurance on cell phones, so you will have to check with your service provider or the phone sales personnel. Stick with the brands that are available to you. Choosing the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G is and excellent decision. I say, go for it!

    Thank you for this great post. Very informative. I am in the process of reviewing 5G smartphones as I am interested in buying one. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G is a great choice. I played with it for a while. It introduces great new features and has an extraordinary cam with great photos and video shot. I also love the pen functionality for writing notes.
    However, I am a bit reluctant because of the high price range. I’ll probably wait for the upcoming One Plus 7 T to decide.

      I am sure either phone will be a good choice for you, but I understand your reluctance regarding the price. Unfortunately, with any new technology, the price at first will be high and in the case of 5G, it may be slow coming down. I don’t know how much you will pay for the One Plus 7 T. You may find that it too will have a pretty high price tag. Whatever you decide, remember that you will be holding in your hand more power and more functionality than you have ever had before. When you make your purchase, feel free to come back and leave a comment about your experience.

      You are welcome. Be sure to continue reading my other pages and posts to get a broader idea of the life-changing extent of 5G in many more areas than just cell phones. With its ability to enhance so much of our research, development, industrial production, security, medical and surgical advances and more, the benefits will touch every one of us.

      Great choice, but remember to check with your service provider regarding when 5G will be available in your area. If it isn’t currently available, be sure to ask when they anticipate to have it. And keep in mind that until your area “goes” 5G, you will still have the speed of your 4G working for you.

    Hello there, thanks for sharing this amazing post. There have been a really nice competition amongst the phone companies in recent time, as there are so many means where they all want to take over the market staring from battery life, camera mega pixel and most importantly the RAM. Looking at this phone, I must admit I’m impressed by its feature and it having a RAM of 5G makes it really lovely. I’m currently having a good phone, but if I’m to change any time soon, I’ll go for this phone. Best regards.

      I am not sure which phone you mean in particular or if you are referring to the general concept of 5G phones, but keep in mind that 5G is not a measure of memory capacity. It has to do with increased download speeds and reduced latency. RAM is memory storage available for immediate use. There is a difference. Thanks for your comments.

    Awesome review! This are great collections of 5G phones. The 5G capability is really nice, even though not many will rock it now, because 5G coverage is pretty sparse right now. In six months to a year though, I’m sure we’ll all appreciate it and be singing a different tune. The Galaxy S10 5G huge screen is a masterpiece, and I believe it could be one of the best-looking display out right now.

    Nice write-up.

      I agree. Even with the folding screen models that are being introduced or planned right now, I think the standard type of screens are doing a great job, especially ones like the Galaxy S10+ has, with or without 5G. As a side note, I think the folding screen idea may prove problematic after long periods of use. So if you like the Galaxy, go for it. Depending on your location and the timeframe for conversion to 5G AND figuring in how long you plan to have the phone before replacing it, you can’t go wrong.

      Hello, Mugalu. You are the first respondent on my site to show a preference for the Motorola Moto Z4 5G. Motorola is a great company and their products are very good quality. The motos they have available for various additional functions are unique to Motorola. Those who have them seem to really like them. Motorola is the only company with a cell phone that has anything like a “moto” or adapter to convert the phone to 5G. I am sure you will love the device. I appreciate your comments.

    Wow I didn’t know about all of the new 5G phones coming out. I’m interested in buying one for my child and have been doing research into it. Which would you recommend for a teenager? They don’t need to do anything crazy but I would like them to have the best quality for a reasonable price. 

    I would like one as well, however I am an apple user so I guess I will have to wait!

      Yes, Apple users will have to wait until later in 2020, but when their models come out, I am sure you will be glad you waited. I assume you are already in a 5G enabled area. Since the price for 5G phones will be higher at first, you may want to reconsider getting a 5G for your teenager. If they aren’t using it for gaming or watching movies or television on it, you might want them to just get a good 4G. Not trying to discourage you. I am just thinking of the practicality. 

      Unfortunately, I am not aware of which would be best for a teenager. There are too many variables to consider. One point I will make is that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G has a sort of stylus pen. That might not be a good idea for a teenager, since I imagine there might be a tendency to lose or misplace it. You will have to determine that for your own family. Thank you for commenting.

    And your article bring up very key use cases that 5G will be providing (tele medecine for instance).

    Great research overall. Of all the carriers, who do you think has an edge on this as of now ?

      It depends on where you are in the world. I am in the United States and to me, from my research, I believe Verizon has the edge over the others. AT&T comes in a close second, probably followed by Sprint. 

      If you ask me about another country, I have to admit I am not familiar with all the major carriers in other places. So I will not venture a guess on those areas. I hope you enjoyed my answer. Thanks for writing!
