Are iPhone Download Speeds Actually Slower Than Android?

The data reviewed by the website reveals that the Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ lead the charts by providing average download speeds of 38.9Mbps and 38.4Mbps respectively.

Apple may have an ace up its sleeve when it comes to the game that is iPhone X versus Samsung Galaxy S9 - because the iPhone really holds it value. The iPhone X averages 31.5 Mbps on Verizon and is the slowest on Sprint's network clocking in at 25.1 Mbps.

As you can see, Apple's flagship iPhone X was almost 10 megabits-per-second slower than Samsung's S9.

Following closely is the Google Pixel 2, which offers 34.4Mbps, and the Pixel 2 XL which offers speeds of 33.9Mbps.

If you happen to own a Samsung or Google device a new report breaking down smartphone internet speeds should make you very happy.

The Huawei Mate 10 Pro had the lowest average speed of 22 Mbps, from a small sample size of 884 phones. Qualcomm gained 1 per cent to $59.15, while Intel also increased about 1 percent to $52.40.

Ookla's results may play a role in helping customers decide what to buy next year when the industry plans to start offering 5G services, which will be multiple times faster than what's now available.

Qualcomm is, of course, very interested in undermining the competition, especially considering that it has lost a big chunk of its modem business with Apple after Intel first started shipping its modems for the iPhone 7 and the Apple-Intel partnership expanded with the iPhone 8 and iPhone X series. Companies that are able to provide phones on those networks earlier may grab market share. AT&T and T-Mobile US use Intel cellular modems.

Qualcomm's latest modems are usually speedier than the ones built by Intel, but Apple uses software to keep the speeds of the Qualcomm chips closer to that of the Intel devices.

Chipmaker Qualcomm, meanwhile, put out its take on the numbers today. It is fairly well-known that the latest iPhones have modems that are theoretically slower than the similar hardware in smartphones that use Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 or Snapdragon 835 processors. Apple has pared back its reliance on Qualcomm and used Intel modems for some of its phones.
