phones dec 13 1605G phone prices are down to $285!! 9 companies are selling 5G phones but the market will only allow 4 or 5 to be profitable. That's the China price, where 10M or more have already signed up. The 150 million subscribing in China next year are an enormous market. All the companies are doing what they believe they must to win market share. US & European prices are still $900 and up, as telcos go very slow on 5G.

The chart below has phone, china price, weight, number of cameras, and size for all phones shipping as of December 13. The updated master is here.

Welcome  Asia is installing hundreds of thousands of 5G radios and adding 5G subs by the tens of millions. The west is far behind. 200,000,000 in 2020

The demand is there, and most of the technology works. Meanwhile, the hype is unreal. Time for reporting closer to the truth.
