Today, new smartphones always support more advanced technologies. Of course, not every technical feature is must be taken into account when choosing a device, but there are some that are really worth paying attention to. For example, if you’re planning to purchase a new smartphone in the nearest future, we advise you to choose a device that supports Bluetooth 5.
Naturally, we don’t need to explain why a cell phone needs Bluetooth. Earlier, this technology was actively used for transferring files between devices. Today, Bluetooth is more used to connect accessories and other gadgets. Plus, the technology is being perfected and improved. Last year, the new standard Bluetooth 5 was introduced and there already are smartphones integrated with it. But what makes better than its successor?
Obviously, data transfer speed is the main concern here. Thankfully, Bluetooth 5 performs very well. It’s faster, and most importantly, it allows you to connect to devices from a further away. For a simple user, this means that you no longer have to worry about how far your headset, wireless speaker or smartwatch is from the smartphone. A smartphone with Bluetooth 5 provides a stable connection at a distance of more than 100 meters. That’s 4 times more than Bluetooth 4. Also, the improved data transfer speed opens new opportunities for fans of high-quality sound.
In addition, you can connect a larger number of devices without worrying about safety and energy consumption. Compared to Bluetooth 4, the fifth version is much more functional. The number of gadgets that a Bluetooth 5 phone can connect to is 8 times more than in the previous version.
In the near future, there will be a lot of smartphones with Bluetooth 5 support. Today, you can choose between Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, Xiaomi Mi 6 or HTC U11. Yes, these smartphones are quite expensive but the prices are justified considering their functionality and Bluetooth 5 is a big part of it.
