Re: Galaxy S10 5G version due March 2019
@Phil: I don't think I'm ready to go that far for the long haul, but I do agree that confessions where you don't have to -- or only barely have to -- pay attention to your phone = SO NICE.

Re: Galaxy S10 5G version due March 2019
@Joe,

 

Better is to go without. One of the best vacations I ever had was in Mackinac in mid-2000s. No cell signal. I was off the grid. Went back a few years ago, no longer off the grid.

@Phil: Frankly, it's simpler to do without! :p As it is, I'm tempted to go back to a flip phone.

Re: Galaxy S10 5G version due March 2019
@Joe,

 

Try one of the large (wallet-size) lithium-ion portable batteries/chargers. You can get 2-3 charges a day and recharge over night. Costs about $90, but well worth if it if you are not going to have access to a charger, or want to stay on the move (at a theme park, for example) during the day.

Re: 2019
@Phil: The broadband analogy is an apt one. In the end, broadband tech won out over alternatives -- but it struggled mightily in its earliest incarnations.

So too with wireless xG tech.

Re: Galaxy S10 5G version due March 2019
@kq4ym: Battery issues seem to be plaguing all the latest phones -- and their software updates -- lately. My own phone has been suffering from major drainage issues myself lately -- just from sitting around idly most of the day. Even a single portable charger doesn't seem to be enough for a busy day on the go these days.

Re: 2019
@Joe,

 

You're absolutely right. 3G was stuck at 2.5G for about 10 years as the underlying infrastructure was built out. Broadbrand had more promise than reality for many years for the same reason.

Re: Galaxy S10 5G version due March 2019
As noted the devices most predictably are probably"going to be expensive, likely suffer from battery life issues, and frequently revert to 4G," which will make for an interesting gamble for providers of service and devices in as short as a year's time. I still wonder about the range issues and how they will be remedied to elimiate those user issues in non-urban areas.

And nothing could possibly change in a year right?
