IPhone XS Tests Far Better Than iPhone X in LTE Speeds

IPhone XS Tests Far Better Than iPhone X in LTE Speeds

Apple iPhone XS LTE performance was compared with Samsung Galaxy Note 9, iPhone X, as well as Google Pixel 2.

Apple didn't mention about the glass protection standard that it is using on new iPhones, but it did say that they have improved upon its predecessor iPhone X. Internally, the iPhone XS has also upgraded on its chipset power and recently in a face off to Samsung Galaxy Note 9, it edged Samsung out by a decent margin. The performance of iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max were pretty much the same as both the phones use the same modem and the same antennas. However, in a lab comparison of hardware capabilities, PC Magazine had Cellular Insights measure the iPhone XS and competing devices using advanced Rohde & Schwarz measurement equipment, and then factored in real-world results from Ookla's Speedtest database for the week of September 24, 2018.

The results aren't really surprising, because 4×4 MIMO has been proven in other devices to show a significant real-world improvement in LTE speeds. Unlike other speed tests, the Phone Buff style is conducted using a specialized machine to ensure there's no margin of error.

For testing, Cellular Insights created a 20MHz channel of Band 4 with Rohde & Schwartz equipment that supports 4×4 MIMO configurations.

Samsung Galaxy Note 9 has rightfully earned the title of best smartphone of our time, which is able to offer the best balance of performance, design and durability. At signal levels below -120dBm (where all phones flicker between zero and one bar of reception) the XS Max is competitive with the Qualcomm phones and far superior to the iPhone X, although the Qualcomm phones can eke out a little bit more from very weak signals. The iPhone X on AT&T and T-Mobile used Intel modems while Verizon and Sprint versions used Qualcomm modems. The iPhone XS showed an average of 6.6Mbps faster downloads on all USA carriers compared with the iPhone X. In Canada, that difference is a whopping 20.2Mbps.

All that said, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9 with its Qualcomm X20 modem still performs a little better than the iPhone XS in the USA and Canada.
