Re: You explain why Samsung already won the 5G war "28 Ghz 5G supports a 1.4 mile cell radius and hand-over at speeds in excess of 65 mph"

Um... nearly all the 28 GHz outdoor 5G trials are working on 100-150 meters ISDs.

Point-to-point LOS applications to specialist fixed-wireless terminals are very different.

You explain why Samsung already won the 5G war "so-called "millimeter wave" frequency bands that lie above the 6GHz range, these airwaves are unlikely to be useful outside small-cell and indoor-coverage deployments."

Since Samsung 28 Ghz 5G supports a 1.4 mile cell radius and hand-over at speeds in excess of 65 mph, your arguement perfectly illustrates why Samsung has already won the 5G format war, this is the only mmWave 5G format able to directly replace LTE macro-cell deployments.

As for 5G vs WiGig, WiGig is not a direct competitor because all unlicensed base stations are restriced in power output to 1 watt max, thereby limiting their cell coverage radius. You are not going to get a WiGig connection while driving on the highway, but Samsung 5G could give you at least 1 Gbits/s at 65 mph.
