Here at WIRED, we still think you should ignore 5G for now. Speeds of 10 gigabits per second sound thrilling, but we’re still a couple years away from 5G becoming a real option for most of the country. When it does come, it’s likely not going to change anything overnight, either. That isn’t stopping phone makers from trying to sell you on it, though. Samsung, LG, Huawei, Xiaomi, and ZTE have shown off 5G-capable devices at MWC, and more will come. A word to the wise: The first 4G LTE phones were hot awful messes years ago, so if you buy an early 5G device, do your homework. Also, don’t let wireless carriers fool you into thinking 5G has already arrived. It hasn’t.
