While multipart has a limit of 5TB, a single operation using AWS SDK, API, or CLI is only 5GB. Anyway, is good to keep in mind what is your case use and think about what happens if the user lost connection when he/she was uploaded 95% of a 5GB file.

I found the answer myself and found that multipart upload has its own advantages that we can continue uploads incase our internet connection went down temporarily and is redundant.
I also made a ultimate guide on S3 demonstrating all of these things
