Ookla Reveals Slower iPhone Internet Speeds Compared to Samsung, Google

Ookla Reveals Slower iPhone Internet Speeds Compared to Samsung, Google”

As a reminder, some iPhone models in the past, and present, were shipped with both Qualcomm Snapdragon X16 chips, as well as Intel XMM 7480 (like the case of the iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus).

In the analysis used more than a million speed tests, which were carried out by the users themselves with the help of Speedtest. It provides factual data based on a large pool of what looks like random speed tests from different locations and it's hard to argue with it. The former showed speeds of 33.9 Mbps, with the smaller Pixel 2 coming in at 34.4 Mbps.

This is not to say that the iPhone, especially the iPhone X that is the most expensive smartphone in the market, should not have the best possible hardware inside it.

Manufacturer Qualcomm processor shared expertise that the flagship for Android iPhone faster data transmission. The Intel XMM 7360 was found inside the iPhone 7 models. But just like the performance benchmarks for processors, which don't reveal much about the actual performance of the phones, the network speed figures too don't exactly reveal how the iPhone X or the Galaxy S9 will behave on the Jio or Airtel network.

And it's worth noting that the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ are more recent devices than Apple's 2017 lineup. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were pretty much the same at 28.6Mbps and 29.4Mbps, respectively. It's slowest on Sprint's network, with speeds of 25.1 Mbps.

Huawei Technologies Co.'s Mate 10 Pro, a phone for the US market, recorded the slowest average speeds of 22 Mbps, based on a small sample size of 884 phones.

Several reports in the past have pointed out that the Intel-powered iPhone X is slower than the Qualcomm-powered iPhone X. Apple apparently throttles the second so that its download speeds are on-par with the first.

Over a million user-initiated tests confirm smartphones with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform have faster cellular speeds and lower latency than Intel modems on AT&T and T-Mobile. Its assessment, per 9to5Mac, is that that Apple phones that don't use its chips are slower than competing devices.
