I got my new Pixel 5a today (upgraded from a Pixel 3 XL)

Curious what anyone else has experienced with a 5G phone, and if there is anything I should know/understand etc.

Also, I do use Google Fi which uses T-Mobile and U.S Cellular networks, fwiw
If this is love, I'm never going home..

Is the power light on, sir?
Is this still Wombat?

I've got a Note +10 5G. Things is, there is no 5G service in 99.9% of areas I'm in - so it is essentially useless. And I never use wifi. About to switch carriers, so this may change. Will report back.

There's 5G coverage in most Canadian cities on Rogers.

Been living outside of Canada for 6 years now. But good to know. About to switch to T-Mobile from Verizon.

I have really enjoyed using Google Fi, in respect to both coverage and cost

Check out there coverage map:

pretty sure Rogers and AT&T were compatible... not sure about that anymore.
