5G has not yet reached its full potential. However, the market is flooded with 5G devices from various manufacturers. But it all comes down to which device has the best 5G capability and can provide the fastest internet speeds. We now know the best 5G devices in the US, thanks to OOKLA (the company behind the popular SpeedTest service).
After calculating the numbers reported to them in Q3 2022, OOKLA has compiled a list of the top 5 fastest 5G devices in the US. What do you think? The top five fastest 5G devices in the United States are all made by Samsung or Apple.
According to reports, the iPhone 14 Pro Max and iPhone 14 Pro are the fastest 5G devices on the market, outperforming Samsung devices. The Galaxy Z Fold 4 is Samsung’s fastest 5G device in the US, followed by the Galaxy S21+ and the Galaxy S22 Ultra. The Galaxy S22 Ultra, this year’s premium flagship, is positioned below the Galaxy S21+, the flagship for 2021.
The top iPhone models achieved impressive download speeds, averaging 177Mbps. In the United States, the best Samsung phone, the Galaxy Z Fold 4, achieved an average speed of 162Mbps. The unfortunate part is that the upload speed difference between the top iPhone models and the top Samsung Galaxy device is enormous. Samsung’s average upload speed was dismal, with the fastest median being less than 20Mbps.
OOKLA pointed out that 5G speeds will vary from network to network because this list did not differentiate data based on network. When it comes to network speeds, Brazil and China outperform the US by having twice the download and upload speeds.
