Consider the most prominent handset on the market that can connect to 5G: the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. It costs $1,300, will only work with Verizon at first, and is available now for preorder. That 5G compatibility adds a $400 premium over the standard Galaxy S10, which costs about $900. Once you get your hands on the 5G handset in May, you'll only be able to take advantage of those higher speeds in certain places in specific cities. Earlier this month, a reporter for the Verge tried out the network in Chicago, reflecting that, "this feels like a premature launch, and 5G can be awfully hard to come by." So, even if you reside in a 5G-enabled city, chances that it will work far and wide are slim.
