Don’t pay the 5G tax if you don’t get 5G

I know this kind of seems obvious but it’s the main reason I’ve stopped even looking at the iPhone 12. I’ve been so interested in the form factor of the Mini that I lost my way a little. I don’t live in a 5G area so I’m paying for something I’ll never use. It’s the main reason I skipped the first iPhone and waited for the 3G. Why pay for something you won’t get the performance you want?

I live in a rural town and looking at my carrier info I won’t be getting 5G for a while yet and being on WiFi almost all of the time it makes no sense for me to upgrade.

Are you seeing 5G where you live?
