Is phone battery dying due to 5G?

Do you feel like your phone’s battery is draining faster than it should be? Nobody You are not alone! Many people are blaming 5G for their battery woes. The truth is that 5G is a new technology that can use more battery on your smartphone due to higher power consumption. It is not as energy-efficient as 4G LTE.

Battery drain is more of an issue with non-standalone (NSA) 5G networks, which rely on existing 4G infrastructure. Standalone (SA) 5G networks consume less battery because they do not rely on 4G infrastructure. Reports indicate that while NSA 5G services provide high-speed internet connectivity, phone calls and messages are still transmitted through 4G or 3G networks. This results in battery draining more quickly due to continuous use of two different devices connected to two different networks.

So if you too are missing out on the battery life you got with 4G after switching to 5G, don’t worry. You can easily switch back to 4G to save some battery, especially when you’re traveling or for times when you want to save power on your device. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you switch from 5G to 4G network on both Android and iPhone.
