If you do get a new phone, I would make sure if is 5G ready (I believe most new phones will be, but just want to clarify as you are getting it, haha), since the game will probably recommend a super fast network connection. Especially when they roll out gameplay using the Codename: Neon function.I've read about the deal between niantic and samsung.
at the moment I own a huawei p9, but I'm looking for a replacement.
i want the best experience with wizards unite, so... should i just but a samsung??
Hopefully they won't exclude other brands, but probably game experience will be better with last Samsung's models.Mr. Hanke did mention Samsung a few times in his keynote speech at MWC19
too expensive...I have a Xiaomi Redmi 4, I'm hoping it will work well with Wizards Unite because I don't want to change it until I can get a 5G one, like @Breixo and @TheWizardsGuide said. My issue with the new Samsung, though, is that they are horribly expensive. Especially when compared to good phones from other brands like Xiaomi or Huawei. If they keep that up not many people will be able to afford it.
