India’s 5G story may be riddled with many imponderables. But that is not holding back Indian consumers from going for 5G-enabled smartphones. There is heightened consumer excitement and optimism around 5G smartphones. So much so, 5G-readiness is one of the factors in Indian consumers’ choice of premium phones (over Rs 25,00), according to a study by the market research firm CyberMedia Research (CMR).

5G has enabled explosive growth in video content creation, especially short-form videos, amongst consumers in China and Western Europe (the places where 5G is available). More than four in every five 5G smartphone users are satisfied with overall 5G usage, the report said.
