I had a phone IPhone 12 With great media coverage thanks to the support of the fifth generation (5G) networks provided by the wireless company, even the US giant, “Apple”, has brought Ericsson CEO “Hans Festberg” to the iPhone 12 launch event in October. to talk about 5G technologies.
But the current 5G performance at Verizon is disappointing many customers of the iPhone 12 or any type of 5G device.
According to a test conducted by PC Magazine, Verizon customers found that they should turn off the 5G signal and opt for 4G, as it is faster than 5G in certain regions.
The main feature of Verizon’s 5G network is the “millimeter wave” “UWB” signal, which has more capacity than the 5G subservices offered by other service providers.
But Verizon’s mmWave-based network is limited to about 60 cities in the United States, because some mmWave signals are fast and can reach 1 gigabit per second when downloading data, it doesn’t travel far, and it can be blocked by physical obstacles like buildings.
To build 5G coverage, Verizon is reallocating parts of its LTE / 4G spectrum to be used in place of 5G technology, using a technology known as dynamic spectrum sharing, and this is how Verizon was able to launch its national network at the same time. with the arrival of the iPhone 12.

The iPhone 12 Pro performed slightly better, at 9 hours and 6 minutes on 5G, but 4G performance was significantly better and lasted for 11 hours and 24 minutes.
