Five top of the line 5G smartphones you can buy right now


If you don’t speak smartphone, 5G refers to the fifth generation of any mobile network. Think of it as an upgrade on all the versions that came before it. When you buy a 5G mobile network you’re signing up for more stability, better performance and unbelievable speed anywhere and at all times. However, you can get the most out of a 5G mobile network only with a great mobile device and shopping for the perfect phone can be overwhelming.

As with any tech shopping you do, it makes sense to read up on what features are worth putting down top dollar for. You want to get a phone that has a good display which makes viewing content easy and fun. Phones with AMOLED screens (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) are best for this but you could also go for P-OLED (Pixel-Organic light-emitting diode). Make sure you are militant about the resolution and storage on the phone. Other performance specs to ask specifically about are the camera, the audio, and battery life. Since 5G is the newest and shiniest mobile network currently, only a few devices support it the way it’s meant to be supported. This is a list of the top 5G smartphones on the market to make sure you stay connected all the time.
