Three years after the first 5G phone landed in Europe, 5G has still not proven itself

It’s been three years since the first 5G phone ever launched in Europe, and the handsets that have followed it have met with mixed reception; 5G was expected to be a revolution in mobile technology, but several years of Covid and lockdown have thrown a key in motion.

On May 1, 2019, Oppo Reno 5G landed in Switzerland. The country became an early battleground for 5G telephone companies because it was one of the first to get 5G networks earlier that year.
