Samsung’s Galaxy S10 has many features and great hardware combinations but a recent report reveals something interesting about the smartphone.
According to a new report by Ookla (based on data gathered by Speedtest Intelligence throughout Q3 2019), the Galaxy S10 has the fastest data transfer speeds in nearly every market.
The performance data analyzed came from Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Nigeria, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, UK, and the US.
According to the report, the Samsung Galaxy S10 was the fastest of these three devices in all but five markets during Q3 2019. However, the mean download speed on the Galaxy S10 varied between 18.06 Mbps in India and 95.91 Mbps in Canada.
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro showed the fastest mean download speed of these three devices in France and the U.K. during Q3 2019 and often placed second in the remaining markets on the list. Mean download speed on the Mate 20 Pro during Q3 2019 ranged from 14.57 Mbps in India to 93.66 Mbps in Canada.
Apple’s iPhone Xs was at a slight disadvantage in this comparison, as it came out in 2018 where the other devices debuted in 2019. Because the iPhone 11 was not fully seeded to markets in Q3 2019, we considered its predecessor, the iPhone Xs, in this analysis.
The iPhone Xs showed the fastest mean download speed in Germany, Japan, and Nigeria during Q3 2019. Mean download speeds on the iPhone Xs varied from 15.92 Mbps in India to 71.72 Mbps in Canada.
Device performance in 5G markets:
Both the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G showed mean download speeds in excess of 200 Mbps in some markets during Q3 2019.
The recent report shows that the Galaxy S10 5G achieves faster 5G speeds compared to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro in every 5G market (Australia, Germany, Italy, South Korea, UK, and the US) except for China.
Related, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G models sold in the U.S. and China are powered by Qualcomm’s first-generation Snapdragon X50 5G modem, while other 5G markets receive the variant powered by Samsung’s in-house Exynos 5100 5G modem.
