    I've had this phone for over a month but I don't get 5G connection where I live I kinda forgot about it. Today I went to the mall in downtown Dubai and for the first time I saw the 5G connection on the status bar so I ran a speed test and here are the results:

    Not sure what I'm gonna do with all this bandwidth on a phone but it's nice to have. Heck my Internet connection at home is 500 MBPS and this phone is even faster!

    My network is Virgin Mobile

    Cool speeds, but why is your wifi icon still on?

    Nice catch I didn't even notice that but I was on the street so there was no way for me to be connected to Wi-Fi but my Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are always on

    Samsung Nearby scan or maybe GMaps turned on Google Location accuracy service that enables BT and Wifi to scan for locations.
    Still getting used to 4G+ with 100Mbps download and 10-20Mbps upload.

    As a contrast, currently in south France, countryside, only got mobile hotspot, 4G+ level ok, but speed is somehow a little under those 645 Mb... :(

    C19 confinement made the local bandwidth usage explode in the area, speed plunged. ftm am very ok with it working at all !
