Ask Engadget: Is 5G worth waiting for?


The support shared among readers in the comments section is one of the things we love most about the Engadget community . Over the years, we’ve known you to offer sage advice on everything from Chromecasts and cameras to drones and smartphones. In fact, our community’s knowledge and insights are a reason why many of you participate in the comments.

We truly value the time and detail you all spend in responding to questions from your fellow tech-obsessed commenters, which is why we’ve decided tobring back the much-missed “Ask Engadget” column. This week’s question comes to us from a reader who needs a new smartphone but has been holding off for the release of 5G. Weigh in with your advice in the comments — and feel free to send your own questions along to [email protected]!
