Should you buy a 5G phone in 2022?

The smartphone market is flooded with 5G phones launching left & right, but there's no 5G service yet in India.

The 5G spectrum auction is expected to begin July 26th, and 5G rollout is expected by late 2022 or early 2023.

So, should you go ahead and buy a 5G enabled smartphone right now? Probably not.

5G phones launched this year offer subpar specs and are priced higher than their 4G counterparts in the same segment.

Upgrading to a 5G device in 2022 is recommended if you urgently need a phone. Otherwise, stick to using your current 4G phone and you'll see better 5G phones next year.

Why will 5G devices be better next year? Simply because 5G phones will have been around for longer and matured technology eventually becomes cheaper.

To conclude, you're better off waiting until next year. However, if you urgently need a phone, get a 5G phone with the highest amount of 5G bands.
