What else do I need to consider?

Before jumping on the first big Black Friday deal you see, you should consider the following things to make sure it’s the right deal for you.

  • Coverage

The single most important thing to consider when buying a 5G Black Friday deal is coverage – unless you’re just planning ahead, there’s little point in a 5G plan on a network that doesn’t have 5G coverage where you live or work. For up to date 5G coverage details, check out our 5G coverage guides.

  • How much data do I need?

That depends on what you plan to use 5G for. If it’s mostly just web browsing and social media, you can get by with a fairly low allowance, but once you’re streaming video, playing online games, or downloading big files, data use can skyrocket. At that point you’ll definitely want over 10GB, and should even consider unlimited data. For a full breakdown of how much data different activities use, check out our guide to how much data 5G uses.

  • How fast is 5G?

5G speeds vary based on network, location, and other factors, but tests suggest they average in the region of 100-200Mbps, with peak speeds of potentially over 1Gbps, and future speeds that will be even higher. When you consider that 4G only averages around 35Mbps, it’s clear to see the difference. For more in-depth details on 5G speeds, check out our how fast is 5G? guide.

  • Which iPhones support 5G?

The iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 Mini all support 5G, but no other models do. Want to know more about the 5G iPhones? We’ve got you covered with our guide to which iPhones support 5G.

  • Which size iPhone is best for me?

Apple offers all sorts of different iPhone sizes, and even with its 5G phones you have the choice of a 5.4-inch, 6.1-inch, or 6.7-inch one. Broadly speaking, big ones are better for media, while smaller ones are better for one-handed use and small pockets, but for a detailed examination of the sizes, check out our guide to what size iPhone is best.

  • How 5G will reshape business?

5G could transform business, with everything from remote working to automated factories, driverless trucks, 8K video conferences, flexible office spaces, and more becoming more viable or improved as a result of it.

It could also benefit all sorts of different industries, from healthcare to manufacturing, tourism and beyond. For a deep dive on 5G for business check out our guide to how 5G will reshape business.
