    Does it matter if i buy a mobile that only connects to 2.4 ghz wifi.? Or should I get one that connects to 5 ghz as well. I am considering Motorola g7 power or Galaxy a20e but both say 2.4 only, whereas they Galaxy a40 connects to both.
    I have very limited knowledge on both mobiles and wifi and am buying for 12 year old boys

    I would be very surprised if those phones don't support 5 ghz WiFi, it's a fairly standard feature these days.

    Actually, Motorola's site lists it as supporting 5 ghz - https://support.motorola.com/us/en/p...ments/MS137728

    Welcome to Android Central! If a phone doesn't support 5 GHz, then it can't connect to 802.11ac wi-fi (which supports significantly faster speeds than the previous standard, 802.11n). If your boys do a lot of heavy-duty gaming, and if they're using wi-fi networks that support 5 GHz wi-fi, they might be happier with a phone that supports 5 GHz.

    BTW, the A20e also supports 5 GHz (it says "dual band,", which means 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz), according to this site: https://www.devicespecifications.com/en/model/141d5035
