How good is 5G – review after real experience of use

How to connect to 5G network


How much talk about 5G, about new phones with 5G, about the assurances of mobile operators to start supporting 5G and increase the coverage of existing networks.

But how important is 5G? Is this really a breakthrough or a marketing ploy to force users to buy newer and more expensive phone models? It happens that new technologies advertised by marketers turn out to be hardly noticeable or simply invisible “by eye”. For example, a new generation of CPUs that either work faster, or work not faster, but better, or work even slower, but still somehow better – I think you roughly understand what I mean.

I am a real user of 5G mobile internet and in this post I want to share my opinion about 5G.

5G networks have appeared in my city, my phone supports 5G, so I decided to test this technology in normal use.

In fact, when talking about the Internet, including the mobile Internet, most users are primarily interested in only two characteristics:

  1. Transfer rate (bandwidth).
  2. Stability (reliability) of data transmission.

So I didn't invent any fancy tests, but just took measurements with Speedtest, and also used the Internet in my daily activities.

5G is a breakthrough in mobile Internet speeds!

Look at these screenshots:

Download speed 460 Mbps! If you are more accustomed to megabytes, then this is about 50-60 MB/s.

Data upload speed is about 30 Mbps!

Once again, mobile Internet at almost half a Gbps!

Not all users even have wired Internet at such speeds. That is, it is very fast.

Moreover, only router models that support the latest Wi-Fi standards are able to provide network connections at such speeds (in theory, in practice, speeds are much lower. For example, 802.11ac has speeds up to 1300 Mbps at 5 GHz plus up to 450 Mbps at 2.4 GHz.

I use my phone as a mobile hotspot through which my computer accesses the Internet. The Access Point must be enabled at 5 GHz, otherwise the Wi-Fi speed at 2.4 GHz may simply not be enough.

I made these measurements of the speed of accessing the Internet through a phone and a 5G network on a computer.

How stable is the Internet in 5G networks

To test how long the high speed of the Internet will last for long periods of time, I decided to check on torrents.

I got about half the speed compared to the measurements on Speedtest. However, I do not think that this is the limit. The fact is that the speed of downloading a torrent depends on the number of people involved in downloading and uploading a file (Seeds and Peers). But even relatively large files at such speeds are downloaded quite quickly. That is, at the beginning of the download there are few Seeds, so the speed is incomplete, in the future the number of Seeds increases, but the download of the file is coming to an end.

That is, I believe that even when downloading large files, 5G networks can consistently have high Internet speeds.

What you need to use 5G networks

You won't get any benefits from 5G if your phone doesn't support 5G networks. That is, first, you need a phone with 5G support.

To make sure your phone supports (or doesn't) go to Settings → Connections → Mobile networks → Network mode SIM.

If you do not see 5G there – then try clicking on the inscription “Network mode SIM” to see if there is a 5G mode.

If there is no 5G there, then most likely your phone cannot work with 5G mobile networks.

Of course, your mobile operator must deploy 5G mobile networks.

If both of these conditions are met, but your phone cannot connect to 5G networks, then this is possible for the following reasons (the list is not complete):

  1. You are out of range of 5G networks.
  2. You need to update your SIM card
  3. You need to enable 5G support in settings as shown above

You won't get any of the benefits of 5G if your carrier plan has a rate limit

Look at the following screenshot.

It is made by the proud owner of an annual tariff plan, which is unlimited (for the number of Gigabytes), but is limited to 10 Mbps.

That is, if you have chosen a tariff plan with a speed limit, then when you switch to 5G, you will not notice any difference. The Internet speed on your phone will be limited by the speed of your data plan.

How to enable saving videos in HEVC in Android to reduce file size

What is HEVC video

HEVC H.265 the new video format, which allows you to compress video files much stronger (almost 2 times compared to the old formats) without losing quality. It is important for 4K movies and high-definition video streaming.

Some mobile phones (for example, iPhone) already save videos in this format by default (although you can switch to the old format in the phone settings).

You can get the HEVC codecs for free through the Microsoft Store on Windows 11 and on Windows 10. You won't be able to find them in the Microsoft Store using the search feature. To get the free package, copy and paste the following code into your web browser's address bar, then press Enter:

ms-windows-store://pdp/?ProductId=9n4wgh0z6vhq

This is not so important, because many video media players work fine with the HEVC H.265 format. And in order for this format to be able to play even the built-in Windows media player, it is enough to install the codec mentioned above.

That is, the HEVC format is well supported by operating systems and mobile phones.

Anyway, should I use HEVC?

HEVC video examples

So that you can evaluate the file sizes and the quality of the HEVC picture, I made a few very short videos for you.

They are of the same duration.

When switching to the HEVC format, the video size is almost halved (about 1.6-1.8 times less).

I deliberately did not upload videos to YouTube so that you can evaluate the original quality before processing and converting files.

You can download video files to your computer to test how well your operating system works with HEVC files.

This video uses the H264 - MPEG-4 AVC (part 10) (avc1) codec:

Download file: https://zawindows.ru/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/Pattaya-H264.mp4

Video specifications:

Height                                   : 2 160 pixels

And this video uses the MPEG-H Part2/HEVC (H.265) (hvc1) codec:

Download file: https://zawindows.ru/wp-content/uploads/2022/08/Pattaya-hevc.mp4

Video specifications:

Height                                   : 2 160 pixels

And the first surprise that you might encounter is that the video does not play at all, or the web browser offers to play it as an audio file.

You can download the file to your computer and make sure that it is still a video file.

If you have already read the article “How to enable saving photos in HEIC (HEIF) format in Android and whether it should be done”, then this problem should have been expected for you. New formats are good for everyone, except that web browsers have poor support for them.

Does YouTube support HEVC format

Yes, I checked, when uploading a video in HEVC format, YouTube video hosting works fine with it, there are no restrictions or difficulties.

How to save video in HEVC in Android

If you still came to the conclusion that the HEVC format is interesting for you and you want to use it to significantly reduce the size of video files without changing the video quality, then the following shows how to enable saving captured videos on Android in the HEVC format (H.265 ) on the example of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra phone.

Open the camera and switch to video recording.

Click the gear icon to go to the camera settings.

Go to the “Advanced recording options” section.

Find the “Reduce file size” option.

Turn on the slider.

The description of the option says that the Reduce file size option is designed to save space without sacrificing video quality. The results will be saved in HEVC format, which some apps and websites don’t support.

Ambient sound in Galaxy Buds2: an analogue of the transparency mode from Samsung

How to listen to ambient voices and sounds in Galaxy Buds2 without turning off the music

Apple's AirPods Pro have a feature called Transparency mode. Its essence is that instead of actively suppressing ambient sounds and noises, they are, on the contrary, transmitted to the user's ear. Thanks to this, you can hear the voice of the interlocutor without turning off the music, as well as hear what is happening around you when, for example, you are in public transport or walking down the street.

The function is at least interesting and many users find it very useful. But is it necessary to have an iPhone and AirPods Pro to have this feature?

In fact, many wireless headphones already support this feature, such as the Jabra Elite 75t and the Sony WF-1000XM4.

I want to talk about the transparency mode on Android.

I use headphones and a phone from Samsung, namely Galaxy Buds2 and Galaxy S21 Ultra.

In Galaxy Buds2, the analogue of the transparency mode is called “Ambient sound”.

For easy control of your Galaxy Buds2, install the Galaxy Wearable app. With this app, you can change Galaxy Buds2's touch action settings, select different modes, turn on Galaxy Buds2's headphone search function, and more.

By the way, updating the Galaxy Buds2 firmware is also done through the Galaxy Wearable app.

Galaxy Wearable has 3 options under Noise controls:

  • Active noise cancellation
  • Off
  • Ambient sound

It is the “Ambient sound” mode that enables amplification of the audibility of external sounds, such as the speech of people around and other noises.

When “Ambient sound” is enabled, a new setting "Ambient sound volume" will appear, you can choose from “Low”, “Medium”, “High”.

You don't have to launch the Galaxy Wearable app each time to change the Noise controls settings. You can also change these settings by touching the Galaxy Buds2.

A long touch on the Galaxy Buds2 means to switch the Noise controls to the opposite mode. For example, if “Active noise cancellation” is already selected, the “Ambient sound” mode will be enabled. If “Ambient sound” is already selected, “Active noise cancellation” will be enabled.

If both of these modes are disabled, then a long touch on the Galaxy Buds2 will first turn on “Active noise cancellation”, and a second long touch will turn on “Ambient sound”.

As with any feature that has to do with ergonomics and user habits, it takes getting used to Noise controls and its modes.

How to remove navigation bar buttons in Samsung Galaxy S22

The first Android phones had physical buttons at the bottom of the screen (there were 3 or 4 depending on the model). With these buttons, you could close the application or undo the last action, return to the main screen, or go to the list of recently opened applications.

Subsequently, these buttons became virtual, that is, part of the image displayed on the phone screen. But this did not stop them from taking up space on the surface of the phone.

The advantage of virtual buttons is that they can still be completely removed from the screen, as a result, the entire surface of the screen becomes a usable area, without the area constantly occupied by buttons.

Is it convenient to control swipe gestures on Android

The question may arise, how then to control the phone if there are no buttons? In this case, swipe gestures are used to control the phone.

In my case, I got used to gestures in a few days (although I used buttons for many years before that). Gestures are no more difficult to control than buttons.

But it cannot be said that there is absolutely no discomfort: when I pick up a phone with buttons, by inertia I try to control it with gestures. And only then, after making sure that nothing works, I notice the buttons.

There are no other inconveniences.

If you want to try switching to swipe gesture control, it's recommended that you try it out for at least a few days, as it's going to be weird at first anyway.

How to enable gesture control and remove buttons on Android

Start by opening your phone's settings menu. The easiest way to do this is to swipe down from the top of your phone's display and drag down the notification bar. From here, tap the gear icon in the top right corner.

Scroll down the menu and find the “Display” section.

Find the “Navigation bar” section and go to it.

Select “Swipe gestures”.

It is also recommended to enable the item “Show button to hide keyboard”.

This button is needed not so much to actually hide the keyboard, but to create a gap between the bottom edge of the screen and the keyboard. If it is not there, then it will not be easy to perform a gesture if there is a keyboard on the screen, since the phone will perceive touches not as a swipe gesture, but as input from the keyboard. As soon as there is a gap, the phone will correctly perceive both swipe gestures and keyboard input.

How to control swipe gestures in Android

In fact, the control is elementary, and there are only three gestures:

  1. Swiping from the right or left edge of the screen means Back, Cancel, Close App.
  2. Swiping up from the bottom of the screen means going to the main screen, similar to the Home button.
  3. Swiping up from the bottom of the screen without lifting your finger from the screen at the end of the gesture means to go to the list of recently opened programs.

The gesture from top to bottom opens the curtain, but the setting described in this manual does not affect it.

How to enable saving photos in HEIC (HEIF) format in Android and whether it should be done

As an alternative to JPEG, modern phone cameras offer saving images in the HEIC (HEIF) format.

Moreover, in iOS, the camera uses HEIC (HEIF) formats by default, and if you do not want to save your photos in these formats, then you can disable this feature.

Android phone cameras also support this format, but it is not used by default.

This guide will show you how to enable saving files in HEIF in Android. Information about this format will also be given so that you decide if you need it at all.

How to enable saving photos in HEIF format in Android camera

Open the Camera app.

Go to the camera settings by clicking the gear symbol.

Go to the “Picture formats” section.

Find and turn on the item “High efficiency pictures”.

The description of this item says: Save space by capturing Photo mode pictures in high efficiency image format (HEIF). Some apps and websites don’t support HEIF format.

After that, all new photos will be saved in HEIF format.

Actually photo files will be saved with .heic extension, not .heif. Applications that support this format understand both file extensions. HEIC is a container format that can store HEVC encoded sounds and images.

Do I need to enable saving photos in HEIF format in Android

HEIF is a new image encoding format, thanks to new algorithms, photo files take up many times less space, while the quality is better compared to JPEG. In addition, the HEIF format has additional technical advantages that are completely absent in JPEG.

At first glance, everything is wonderful.

But in practice, using the HEIF format, you will encounter the fact that many applications and sites do not understand it and do not know how to work with it, or work in a limited way. For example, web browsers cannot display HEIF images.

Even more frustrating is the fact that HEIF is already kind of an outdated format. Yes, despite the fact that HEIF is poorly supported by popular applications, the developers of this format have created another format that is even better, this is AVIF.

Paradoxically, the even newer AVIF format is supported somewhat better by applications. Web browsers are at least partially capable of displaying images in this format. Partly because animated AVIF (yes, the format supports animated images, transparency, and deeper color depth) is not supported by any of the applications I've tested, including web browsers.

But what is even more annoying, even modern Android phone models still do not have the option to save photos in AVIF.

If your phone does not yet support HEIC (HEIF) formats, then I took some photos for you so that you can compare the quality with JPEG and HEIC (HEIF).

This photo was taken with my phone and saved as a JPEG.

Then I enabled saving the file in the HEIC format in the settings and took the following picture (the web browser cannot display this format, but you can download the file from the link): https://zawindows.ru/files/home.heic

JPEG file size 2.5 MB, HEIF file size taken on the phone 1.4 MB.

I'm not completely sure if the phone actually saves the file in HEIC format initially, or if it first takes a picture in JPEG format and only then converts it to HEIC. In the second case, all the advantages (less distortion during compression, support for greater color depth) of the HEIC format are lost, except for the small size.

Then I took the JPEG file and converted it to HEIC. In fact, in this case, HEIC and HEIF are identical formats. The file turned out to be upside down, to rotate it 90° I used the GIMP graphics editor. In both cases, I converted and saved the file without changing the resolution or reducing the quality. The resulting file began to occupy 663 kilobytes at the same resolution. Link to the file: https://zawindows.ru/files/home-converted.heif

Visually, the files do not differ – you can download all three files and look for differences in order to decide for yourself whether it is worth switching to the HEIC (HEIF) format, given the difficulties with viewing and processing it.

You can also experiment with AVIF and HEIF (HEIC) formats using the Universal Image Converter: https://suip.biz/?act=convert-any-image. This completely free online service supports hundreds of image formats, including AVIF and HEIF (HEIC).

Why images are distorted in photographs and parallel lines become converging

I noticed that the photos taken by the Android phone, namely the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra models, are very distorted.

Distortion is especially noticeable on parallel lines (such as the sides of a building) and on people's faces.

For example, In the photo above you can see that tall buildings seem to grow in different directions, although this is certainly not the case – in real life, such high-rise buildings would have already fallen.

Even in this photo of a low building with several floors, you can see how much the photo is distorted – the parallel sides are not parallel at all.

The same happens with faces – they become distorted, as if alien.

This camera behavior and photo distortion cannot be avoided when shooting with a wide-angle lens, but the examples shown above are taken with a regular camera without any adjustments.

In fact, the problem is explained and solved very simply – you need to hold the phone perpendicular to the object that you are photographing.

Look at this distorted frame – the lines of its sides are no longer parallel and should converge at some point.

And in this shot, the photographer is simply holding the phone perpendicular to the frame – now all opposite sides of the picture are parallel!

If you are photographing houses, then in order for their sides to be parallel, mentally divide the viewfinder horizontally in half and place the center of the house on this line. That is, the house does not have to be placed exactly in the center of the frame, it is enough that the middle of the house is at the level of a mental line dividing the frame horizontally in half.

In this photo, I slightly changed the angle of the house opposite and its walls began to go straight up.

Likewise with faces. Try to make sure that the camera is held perpendicular to the face, that is, the middle part of the face should be at the level of the mental line dividing the frame horizontally in half.

Why computer can’t connect to Wi-Fi Hotspot on Android phone for a long time (SOLVED)

Why my computer cannot connect to the Android mobile Wi-Fi hotspot for a long time

After updating Android, I ran into a problem that the computer sees a mobile hotspot, but at the same time:

1. It does not try to connect to it automatically

2. When I select the Access Point manually, an attempt is made to connect, which ends in failure after about a minute

See also:

Additional symptoms of the problem:

3. Before the Android update on the phone, connecting to the Hotspot was fast and without problems

4. The computer can sometimes connect to the mobile hotspot

5. New devices quickly connect to Hotspot on Android without problems

One reason for this behavior could be a new setting that allows you to use an arbitrary MAC address for the mobile hotspot.

How to set permanent or random MAC address for Hotspot on Android

Go to Settings → Connections → Mobile Hotspot and Tethering → Mobile Hotspot.

Click the “Configure” button.

Click the “Advanced” button.

Look for “MAC address type”.

There are two options to choose from:

  • Randomized MAC
  • Phone MAC

If you select the first option (“Randomized MAC”), a random MAC address will be generated for the created Mobile Access Point. If you select the second option (“Phone MAC”), the permanent MAC address of the phone will be used for the created mobile hotspot.

Select “Phone MAC”, save the settings and check if this solves the problem with the slow connection to the Hotspot on Android.

What is the “Randomized MAC” setting for? Is it safe to turn it off

The question may arise, why is the “Randomized MAC” setting enabled by default, which creates serious problems when connecting to a mobile hotspot? Perhaps it is very important and should not be disabled?

The MAC address of each device must be unique. More precisely, each network interface (one device, including a phone, can have several network interfaces) must have a unique MAC address. This MAC address allows you to distinguish one device from another. You can also find out the manufacturer of the device by the MAC address (for example, Samsung, Apple, and so on).

See also:

Enabling the “Randomized MAC address” setting makes it so that for a hypothetical third-party observer, an Access Point is created each time on a device unfamiliar to him.

But you need to remember that each Access Point has the following identifiers:

  1. Device MAC address (BSSID)
  2. Access Point Name (ESSID)

That is, if you are really concerned about privacy issues, then in addition to enabling the “Randomized MAC” setting, you also need to change the network name every time, otherwise the “Randomized MAC” setting loses all meaning.

In fact, most users just do not need to enable the “Randomized MAC” setting. Enabling the “Randomized MAC” setting without taking other measures (for example, changing the network name each time the AP is created) does not make much sense. But at the same time, other devices that, when connected to the AP, can be guided by its MAC address, begin to experience connection problems.

In short, if you do not have a clear understanding of what exactly you need the “Randomized MAC” setting for and/or you do not take other steps to make it difficult for your phone to be identified as an AP and at the same time you are experiencing problems connecting to a mobile AP, then you can safely disable this setting.

If your devices connect to the mobile AP without problems with the “Randomized MAC” setting enabled, you can leave it enabled.

Do I need to enable the setting “Support Wi-Fi 6 standard”

If after changing the MAC address type setting, your computer or other devices continue to experience problems connecting to the Mobile Hotspot, then pay attention to the following two settings.

The first setting is “Support Wi-Fi 6 standard”. This item is located in: Settings → Connections → Mobile Hotspot and Tethering → Mobile Hotspot → Configure → Advanced → Support Wi-Fi 6 standard.

Support Wi-Fi 6 standard” brings many technical improvements and data transfer speeds. But that's in theory. If, in practice, your devices cannot connect to the Access Point with the “Support Wi-Fi 6 standard” setting enabled, then disable it.

Choose “2.4 GHz” or “5 GHz”?

In theory, Wi-Fi at 5 GHz is faster. This is due both to the technical characteristics of the 5 GHz channels and to the fact that these channels are currently less crowded. However, in practice, the transmission area of a 5 GHz Wi-Fi signal is less than 2.4 GHz. Some older devices do not support 5 GHz operation. Some devices, even those that support 5 GHz, are slower to find the Access Point at these frequencies.

Although it is recommended to select the 5 GHz band in the Access Point settings, if you are not satisfied with the quality of the mobile Access Point, you can change the Frequency Band of your Access Point. To do this, go to: Settings → Connections → Mobile Hotspot and Tethering → Mobile Hotspot → Configure → Band. There you will be presented with a choice of:

  • 2.4 GHz
  • 5 GHz preferred

Switch to “2.4 GHz” and see if that solves your problem.

How to change the country in the Play Store

Features of changing the country in the Play Store

You can change the country in the phone in different ways, depending on the specific task. For example, to change the country for websites, it is enough to use a proxy or VPN.

To change the country for applications using GPS, you can use one of the applications that fake GPS data:

  • Mock GPS With Joystick
  • Mock Locations
  • Fake GPS – ByteRev
  • Fake GPS Go Location Spoofer
  • GPS Emulator – RosTeam
  • Fake GPS Location – Hola
  • Fake GPS Location – Lexa

But none of these methods are suitable for the Play Store, Google's mobile app store for Android phones.

Why you need to change the country in the Play Store

Some applications are available only in certain countries, or, on the contrary, are available in all countries with the exception of some. That is, by changing your country in the Play Store, a slightly different set of applications becomes available for you to install. However, most apps are equally available in all countries and you may not notice any difference when you change the country in the Play Store.

Also, depending on the country in the Play Store, the available payment methods for purchasing applications in the Play Store may vary.

Depending on the selected country in the Play Store, the list of applications of a regional nature may change: applications for various government services, banking and brokerage services, instant messengers.

Restrictions on changing the country of the Play Store

You can change the country no more than once a year.

After creating a payment profile, you also need to wait 12 months to change the country.

After changing the country, the changes cannot be undone. You can return to the previous country after a year.

If you're changing your country to access apps, books, games, movies, and TV shows that aren't available in your country, remember that some of these may also become unavailable when you change your country.

To change the country you must be in the new country and have a payment method in it.

Your Google Play Balance is linked to your Google Play country. If you have a Google Play Balance and change country, you won't be able to use that balance in your new country. At the same time, the balance is not reset – in the case of a return to the previous country, this balance becomes available again.

Step-by-step instructions for changing the country in the Play Store

Open Play Store.

Click on your profile photo.

Select “Settings”.

Select “General”.

Select “Account and device preferences”.

In the “Country and profiles” section, select the country you want to add to your account.

Follow the instructions on the screen to add a payment method for this country.

It may take up to 48 hours for your profile to update.

Why is the country change not available in the Play Store?

The option to change country may not be available in the Play Store. This may be for the following reasons:

1. Over the past year, you have already changed the country

2. You are not currently in a new country, this is based on your IP address.

3. You are part of the Google Play Family Library.
