Best 5G Phones You Can Get under 20K in the Philippines This 2021

It’s about time for an upgrade

The internet has truly become an indispensable part of the new normal—admit it, you probably can’t last a day without going online. Whether it’s to check your social media notifications, work emails, homework or the latest episode of your current Netflix binge, a reliable connection is a must-have now more than ever.

Fortunately, the next generation of internet connectivity is here. 5G offers the highest available internet performance yet so that you can enjoy HD shows without interruptions or loading times, high-resolution conference calls with low to zero lag, and is the fastest roaming speeds abroad.

Thanks to Globe’s 5G Postpaid plans, you don’t have to wait to experience 5G’s countless possibilities. You also no longer have to worry about unstable connections, especially with Globe 5G’s wide coverage throughout the country. All you need is the right device to make the most out of Globe 5G.

The Lowdown on 5G

First and foremost—what is 5G? 5G is the fifth-generation technology standard for wireless internet connectivity that promises higher performance, faster data speeds and better reliability—all at a higher bandwidth. 

5G lets you and your loved ones enjoy nearly 20 times faster connection than its predecessors, 3G, 4G and LTE. On top of that, it can support more devices without sacrificing speed and even reaches up to 100Mbps. 5G also has an almost real-time latency resulting in faster response times.

Unlike 4G and LTE that use two spectrum bands, 5G’s data signals travel through data frequencies across three different spectrums: low-band (great area coverage), mid-band (smaller area coverage) and low-band (lowest area coverage). This results in a more stable connection and a lightning-fast internet experience.
