Experts from OpenSignal have published data on which smartphones are the best for working in 4G LTE mobile networks, i.e. allow you to download content from the mobile Internet faster than others. According to the study, Samsung smartphones are the fastest, ahead of the iPhone.
The company measured 23 million devices worldwide in the second quarter of 2019 and found that Samsung smartphones in the United States operate at a speed of 28 Mbit/s, while in the United States iPhones give an average speed of 20 Mbit/s.
“Samsung produces a wide range of models from cheap to premium, while Apple offers only models with premium prices. This, in our opinion, is an impressive result not in favor of IPhones,” OpenSignal experts note in their report.
Download speeds on mobile devices are generally lower in the US than in most European countries. In Norway, Samsung users can enjoy a download speed of 58mbps compared to 46mbps for iPhone.
