SUMMARY

This global mobile network survey finds high-tier Samsung users experience the fastest download speed across the high-tier smartphone manufacturers.

 To understand the difference, researchers split smartphone users into three groups: low, mid and high-tier. A smartphone’s mobile network potential is the standard for each group. High-tier models include more network technologies and experience mobile network improvement. The performance of present high-tier models forecasts mobile network experiences in the future.

Among 40 countries, Samsung users experienced faster download speeds than Apple and Huawei users in 35% of countries. In comparison to the three largest smartphone makers, Apple users were faster in 17.5% of countries. And in the remaining 48%, none of the three were fastest. Huawei users were fastest in seven countries.

 In the US, Samsung users experienced download speeds 8.2 Mbps faster than iPhone users. The nation with the greatest advantage for Samsung users was Norway. Samsung users were 12 Mbps faster than Huawei users and 14 Mbps faster than Apple iPhone users. Apple users experienced the biggest edge over Samsung and Huawei users in U.A.E. and Taiwan. In these countries, iPhone users experienced download speeds 14.7 Mbps and 8 Mbps faster than Samsung users’ speeds.

High-tier Samsung users experienced faster speeds than Apple and Huawei users with global download speeds of 26.6 Mbps, 25.1 Mbps, and 24.4 Mbps respectively. However, in the mid-tier group, Apple users experienced the fastest speeds of the three largest smartphone brands. Huawei users were the fastest among low-tier groups. Among the three major smartphone manufacturers, high-tier Samsung users experience the fastest download speeds.

Indeed, not all smartphones are made equal. This report highlights the network capabilities across various countries.
