5G uses less power than 4G at peak bitrates, but more for basic tasks

If you’ve been holding off on buying a 5G device because you’re worried about cellular power drain and battery life, don’t worry. 5G devices are actually capable of delivering greater energy efficiency than 4G LTE models, according to a new study by the Signals Research Group, though either 5G or 4G may consume less power depending on the bit rates and applications being used at a given moment.
