So many Android users are now switching to the smartphones with 5G support as more and more countries in the world have started to support the 5G mobile networks. This is why there is a huge demand of 5G enabled mobile phones in the world.
When you purchase an Android smartphone with 5G support, you should ensure that it provides support to all the 5G frequency bands. Typically, there are 12 such bands and if the smartphone supports all these 12 bands then you should consider buying it. If a mobile phone covers only 5-6 bands, then you should check whether those bands are supported by your mobile network provider like Vodafone or T-Mobile. If there is a mismatch between the 5G bands support from your mobile network provider and your smartphone, then you won’t be able to use 5G at all.
Even when you can access 5G networks, you should setup your phone to auto-switch between 5G and 4G networks so that you can always access mobile data.
Here is how you can set Android smartphones to automatically switch to the 5G mobile networks:
- First of all open the Android settings. For this, you have to use a single finger slide down on the home screen’s top edge.
- On the Android settings screen, select SIM and Network Settings.
- In the case of dual SIM mobile phones, select the SIM for which you want to change the settings.
- Select the Preferred network type for the selected SIM card.
- Choose 5G auto mode from the displayed list of options.
- This is all, now you can go about using your Android smartphone and it will automatically switch to the 5G network whenever it finds one.
The benefit of setting up your Android smartphone in this manner is that you never go offline even when the 5G signal is weak. In that case, your mobile phone connects to 4G network if available.
