These days we have been testing the Vodafone 5G network, the first with this technology available in Spain. It is true that the coverage is still not as wide as we would like, but you can start enjoying some advantage of this network, especially its speed.
Comparison of 3G, 4G and 5G speed: more difference than it seems
We have made a comparison of 3G, 4G and 5G speed with two different services and there is more difference than we could believe.
Of course, for this we will need a 5G smartphone, and so far there were three available, one from Xiaomi, one from Samsung and one from LG.
Today that list is expanded with the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G, a model that was expected will arrive at the same time as the previous ones but that has been postponed. This model is a variant of a terminal that has been in our country since the end of last year, the Huawei Mate 20 X.
What's new in the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G
Although the 4G and 5G models of the Mate 20 X are very similar, there are certain differences. To start the modem is different, something logical if we think we have to be able to connect to 5G.
In addition, Huawei has decided to expand the RAM and internal memory of the 5G model, since it is more expensive. It will have 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, which we can expand using nanoSD.
