    I would still love to know the logic behind this. Why on earth would you ever need 5G? Maybe by 2020 it will be relevant, but I kind of doubt it.

    I just wonder how much heat would the phones be generating using such high frequencies*.
    Also a bit concerned about the range.


    *) and no, I'm not talking about the CPU or SoC's frequency.
