A few weeks ago, new warnings started being reported that 5G is causing phones to overheat.
Here’s another one, including some very unfriendly solutions for the environment. Snickering encouraged.
5G mmWave Phones Can’t Stand the Heat
The US is suffering a heatwave, and so, it turns out, are the early millimeter wave (mmWave), high-frequency phones being used to test initial 5G networks in cities across the country.
The expensive ($1,300) and short-range (up to 2,000 feet) Samsung S10 5G phones that are being used for early consumer tests of 5G promise speeds of over 1 Gbit/s on 5G networks.
The catch? They can overheat as the temperature gets hotter.
“When I ran tests, the phone’s 5G often switched off due to overheating, leaving me with a 4G connection,” reports the Wall Street Journal’s Joanna Stern in a multi-city test of the 5G devices recently.
During 80 and 90-degree days, In Atlanta, New York and Chicago, Stern used ice packs, air conditioning in cars or simply the sun going down to cool the phones.

In February, the telecom industry gave congressional testimony that they have NO scientific evidence that 5G is safe. Many doctors and scientists warn that it isn’t (see 1, 2, 3). Research has also determined that exposure can cause body temperatures to rise in bugs and humans.
Few people have signed up for 5G where it’s already been installed. Regardless, telecom companies continue to promote and install it wherever they can despite widespread opposition and eventual inevitable lawsuits.
