Samsung smartphone users have an advantage over Apple and Huawei devices, according to a new report.
The speed of mobile Internet depends on a number of factors, which also include the model of the device you are using.
According to a new report from OpenSignal, Samsung smartphone users have an advantage over Apple and Huawei devices when it comes to download speeds. This pattern is observed in 35% countries in which the study was conducted. Another 17.5% countries showed the best results Apple smartphones. Elsewhere, neither Apple, nor Samsung, nor Huawei were particularly fast.
According to the report, in the US, Samsung users experience download speeds an average of 8.2 Mbps faster than iPhone users. This is quite high, but not as high as in Norway, where Samsung owners achieve 12 Mbps higher than Huawei users and 14 Mbps higher than iPhone users. However, in the UAE and Taiwan, the iPhone was ahead of Samsung Solutions immediately at 14.7 Mbps.
These figures can be influenced by many different factors. For example, different manufacturers work with different modem vendors - Android smartphone manufacturers often install Qualcomm modems, while Huawei uses modems of its own design, and the iPhone has been using Intel modems for the past few years. Well, since Apple recently bought the modem business from Intel, you can be sure that the company will soon switch to its own solutions.
The OpenSignal report included tests from 23,352,908 devices in 40 countries. At the same time, the devices were divided into three levels - entry-level, middle and top levels. At the same time, in 25 countries, high-end smartphones were at least twice as fast as low-end phones. At the same time, Samsung smartphones were in the lead in the top level, while Huawei was in the initial level.
These results may change significantly over the next few years as the 5G era advances.
