IPhone XS LTE Performance Clobbers iPhone X, Still Slower Than Qualcomm

In early September, the Network appeared rumors that Samsung is preparing to release Galaxy Note 9 in the new scale. We could see it unveiled alongside an upcoming Galaxy A or Galaxy J smartphone, since Samsung tends to use hardware launches to also launch new accessories.

This year, Apple's new iPhone XS and XS Max phones both have 4x4 MIMO, which should put them closer to par with other leading flagships. For real-world results, the site relied on Ookla's crowdsourced Speedtest Intelligence database. Unlike other speed tests, the Phone Buff style is conducted using a specialized machine to ensure there's no margin of error.

A 20 MHz channel of LTE Band 4 was used, which is common to AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and all of the major Canadian carriers. Thanks to the 4×4 MIMO antennas, the iPhone XS Max LTE speed is double that of the iPhone X. The feature also helps boost the device's performance when the signal conditions are weak, the report notes.
