In terms of connectivity, nothing is really missing, even the module finds its place NFC, a jack da 3,5mm for headphones and a physical programmable key. There is no 5G modem, but compatibility with networks LTE 4G they will be more than sufficient for most uses, offering a good internet browsing speed as well as downloading / uploading your data.
