Using 5G can really be a drain on your smartphone battery

New research has argued 5G connectivity drains more of a smartphone’s battery than using 4G, but not everyone’s convinced.

Researchers from Ookla recently sought to test the difference between modern chipsets on Android-powered devices. They found Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset being not only more efficient compared to the Gen 1, but also used the least amount of power (31% for 5G users and 25% for those on 4G-LTE).
