[gearbest News] Last year, when Apple launched the iPhone 11 series, it was criticized for not having 5G network support, but when you think about it, Apple must have its own reasons for not launching 5G phones, and it seems that it is not an unwise decision for Apple to give up 5G.

Recently, the Samsung S20 series announced that it will support the 5G networks of all major wireless operators in the United States. recently, the US media tested all the major 5G networks in the United States with a Samsung S20 Ultra and found that it was not what Samsung said. In fact, Galaxy S20 Ultra connected to AT&T and T-Mobile networks will display a 5G icon, even if the phone does not use the 5G network to send and receive data.

It all depends on how operators handle it. Because the low-band 5G network used by AT&T and T-Mobile has the characteristics of wide coverage but unreliable signal, its transmission speed is sometimes even lower than that of 4G network. In this case, S20 will use 4G network by default. The problem is not here, but that when Samsung S20 Ultra uses a 4G network, it tells consumers that it is using a 5G network. The report comes from an editor named Sascha Segan at PC Magazine.

According to another theory, it should be AT&T and Tmai Mobile, who have a 5GE that is neither 4G nor 5G. When connecting to this network, the S20 Ultra will display a 5G icon, but the connection speed is not as fast as 5G.
