Samsung launches S Pen SDK for Galaxy Note 9

iPhone XS Max vs Galaxy Note 9 Real-World Speed Test

Well, in the PhoneBuff style speed test between the iPhone XS Max and the Galaxy Note 9, the former absolutely destroyed Samsung's latest flagship device in app loading times. The 7560 is Intel's first modem to support all four United States wireless carriers, letting Apple drop Qualcomm, the world's dominant high-end modem supplier. 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.

The review suggests that Apple has made some noticeable improvements with this year's iPhone range but not enough to topple Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 hardware from the top of the smartphone hierarchy.

It has been well over a week since the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max went up for sale.

Between the three 4x4 MIMO phones, you can see that in good signal conditions, the Qualcomm-powered Galaxy Note 9 and Google Pixel 2 still do a bit better than the iPhone XS Max. The two variants of Note 9- 128GB and 512GB are priced at Rs 67,900 and Rs 84,900, respectively. In fact, at signal strengths less than 120dBm, the iPhone XS and XS Max might even prove to be faster than the Android handsets.

Amazon's Galaxy Note 9 offer only lasts until 3AM EST on Wednesday morning, so you don't have long to decide if you want to get in on the unlocked flagship bandwagon. However, the Pixel 2 performance declined to just 10Mbps. The iPhone XS still remains competitive down to nearly no signal, though.

Speed test specialist Ookla conducted real-world tests to assess the cellular speed of the iPhone XS.

Real-world tests from Ookla's Speedtest database showed an average speed increase of 6.6 Mbps on all USA carriers on the iPhone XS as compared to the iPhone X. In Canada, that difference jumped to a much more significant 20.2 Mbps. In Canada, the average download speed jumped by 20.2Mbps compared to iPhone X. Telus witnessed the biggest jump of almost 32Mbps. T-Mobile comes in at 6.6Mbps, Verizon at 5.7Mbps, and Sprint at 2.3Mbps.

The first versions of the iPhone XS firmware may, in some places, be causing trouble with signal reception.
