The telecom industry has provided NO scientific evidence that 5G is safe and plenty of research has proven it isn’t (see 1, 2). In fact, exposure can cause body temperatures to rise in both bugs and humans who may also sweat profusely from it. (Ew.) Now we’re hearing that overheating doesn’t just apply to living beings. Oh the irony…
Hands-on report says “persistent overheating” issues plague 5G hardware.
Overheating in 85-degree weather sounds a lot more excessive than the heat issues from an extended gaming session. The 5G modem will be on any time you’re simply browsing the Web or doing anything on the Internet, so it sounds like 5G users would run into heat issues more frequently than a mobile gamer. Segan doesn’t sound too happy about the heat issues either, saying, “This persistent overheating behavior just makes me more confident in recommending that consumers wait to buy a 5G phone.”
To make matters worse, some carriers don’t even report when this is happening. Segan writes “AT&T being AT&T, the company leaves the “5G+” indicator on the phone even when it’s dropped to 4G from overheating.” AT&T has been working overtime this year to remove all meaning from the term “5G” by rebranding its 4G service to “5G Evolution,” but “5G+” on an AT&T phone is supposed to actually mean you’re getting 5G mmWave service. Showing customers a 5G indicator and then giving them 4G speeds will certainly cause confusion, but that ship sailed for AT&T customers long ago.
This overheating news is the latest piece of evidence to scream “Don’t buy a 5G phone.” The devices are bigger, hotter, more expensive, and have less battery life than their 4G counterparts. Service is only available in a handful of cities, and even when you are in those cities, 5G coverage is limited to certain blocks. Now comes the news that even when you have compromised your device with 5G hardware and stand at the right address, you might not even get 5G if it’s hot out.
Doctors, elected officials, environmentalists, meteorologists, security experts, the U.S. Navy, utility companies and more are trying to put an end to the insane “Race for 5G” for a variety of valid reasons. Few people have signed up for it where it’s already been installed. Regardless, telecom companies continue to promote and install it wherever they can – despite widespread opposition – so everybody and everything has the opportunity to overheat whether they subscribe or not.
