Over the last two months, weâ€™ve seen a few reports that show iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max as the fastest 5G smartphones. Now Ookla is back with its latest report that solidifies Appleâ€™s spot as the maker of the fastest 5G devices in the US, UK, and more.
The Speedtest makerâ€™s new study is based on Q3 data, here are some of its criteria:
â€œOur analysis examined the five fastest popular 5G devices in a given country. To be included, a device had to have a market share of greater than or equal to 0.5% of all devices and a minimum sample size of 100 devices in a given market. Each market we examined included only 5G samples from every 5G provider in a given country. That means performance most likely varies network to network and country to country, but this provides a snapshot of what you might typically expect.â€
Fastest 5G smartphones in the US
iPhone 14 Pro Max was the fastest 5G device in the US at a median download speed of 177.21 Mbps with the iPhone 14 Pro coming in second at 175.08.
Samsungâ€™s Galaxy smartphones took spots three through five with speeds between 137 and 162.5 Mbps.
Fastest 5G devices in the UK
Interestingly, Appleâ€™s iPhones swept the entire top five in the UK:
Ookla says â€œIt should be noted that some newer device models like the iPhone 14, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4, and Google Pixel 7 launched in select markets on different days and may not have been included in our Q3 2022 analysis.â€
That explains why last time around we saw iPhone 14 Pro Max with blazing-fast median speeds up to 493 Mbps in Brazil and in this new report, iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max arenâ€™t on the list at all in some countries.
Check out all the countries included in the full Ookla study.
