Intel's LTE Modems in iPhone XS/XS Max Unable to Match Qualcomm Speeds

iPhone XS Max vs Galaxy Note 9 Real-World Speed Test DEAL: Galaxy Note 9 Bundle With Gear IconX and Wireless Charger is...

It took over 20-foot drop for iPhone XS Max to smash from the front completely, which is about two-story apartment height. The iPhone XS and XS Max also get 4×4 MIMO antennas, which boost speed and performance in areas with weak cellular signals. Qualcomm modems at the time supported 4×4 on carriers with the necessary network infrastructure. But then again, the Qualcomm modems pulls ahead of the Intel chips at the lowest signal strengths.

The speed test battle on a video compared iPhone XS' A12 Bionic processor to Samsung Galaxy Note 9's Snapdragon 845 in multitasking performance.

Samsung Electronics Co. plans to start sales of a silver-coloured Galaxy Note 9 as early as this week, industry sources said on Tuesday, apparently to promote the device amid the launch of new iPhones and other rival products. That's thanks to the addition of 4×4 MIMO. The iPhone X on AT&T and T-Mobile used Intel modems while Verizon and Sprint versions used Qualcomm modems. The iPhone XS still remains competitive down to nearly no signal, though.

PCMag also looked at real-world speed data from Ookla Speedtest (disclosure: ExtremeTech's parent company Ziff Davis also owns Ookla). This channel is used by major carriers in the USA as well as Canada including, AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, etc. Thanks to well-tuned 4×4 MIMO antennas on iPhone XS, speeds doubled in strong signal conditions -85dBm. In Canada, the average download speed jumped by 20.2Mbps compared to iPhone X. Telus witnessed the biggest jump of almost 32Mbps. While Apple has since been relying on Intel modems for the iPhone devices - the iPhone XS and XS Max comes equipped with the Intel XMM 7560 LTE modem - the Android flagships such as the Note 9 or Pixel 2 comes with Qualcomm LTE modems that has a history of being faster than its Intel counterparts. Thankfully, that's not a downgrade like it was in the past.
