5G mmWave loss compared to LTE low/mid band?

Hello Experts,

I know we have capacity benefits when using 26 GHz mmWave in 5G NR.
But how much is the loss compared to LTE for example in Band 5 (850 MHz) or Band 3 (1800 MHz)?
What is the workaround or rationale here?
Pros, Cons.

For comparison purposes, you can use the much used Friis transmission equation. Basically, the ratio of received power to transmitted power is proportional to directivity of TX antenna, directivity of RX antenna and square of wavelength.

Using prediction tools you will find a difference of ~ 23 dB. This is the reason beamforming need to be used, with narrow beam.
