If there's 5G connectivity but no 5G devices on it, does it make a sound? Wait, no, that's not right

Most people probably don't need to download at 256Mbps that they achieve in the test never mind the 10Gbps they claim that it should be able to achieve on their phone. Especially when the phone companies still restrict the data allowance on most phone plans.

Where you do need higher bandwidth for things like streaming 4K video, are completely pointless on a phone screen that is 4 - 6 inches across where you probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference between 4K and 720p video.
