    It is a decided superset of the modem commands as Samsung has implemented over 1,200 AT commands!

    These include peeking and poking RAM as well as higher level stuff.

    I bet it also does "Real" 5G instead of the "FauxG" that AT&T has some of their handsets indicate...

    Samsung WILL have a 5g version in the S10 product line, just not out at this time ...more than likely later this year

    IIRC, Motorola has been shipping a true 5G capable phone for a while now so I'm guessing your referring specifically to the S10s.

    Well. . Verizon says that you need 5g SERVICE to get real 5g...that will take time...the focus is on fixed 5g

    The public network doesn't have to exist to demonstrate the technology.

    Of course Verizon is going to insist that you need to subscribe to their version of 5G, but the 5G standard was developed so that everyone could eventually offer true 5G service if they chose.

    The Moto Z3 with a true 5G adapter is not a prototype. They've been available to mortals for a while as I stated.

    So you won't be left out in the cold when true 5G is available of course.

    Because the Moto Z line is modular, you don't actually have to buy the module until you need it.
