The 5G of the iPhone 12 is far behind almost all Android


Most 5G Android terminals are faster than iPhone 12.

5G is undoubtedly one of the technologies of the future. Thanks to it we will have a more stable connection and we will be able to download data at a higher speed. Now, the 5G that we currently have is far from what we were promised at the beginning and it is still a somewhat faster 4G connection.

However, 5G is being a perfect excuse to sell us new models of smartphones. All current high-end ranges are compatible with 5G, so if you want to make use of this technology, you have no choice but to take out your wallet.

Among 5G smartphones, the iPhone 12 stands out, which is being one of the best-selling mobiles of the year. However, and from what we have been able to know recently, the 5G of the iPhone 12 is light years away from that offered by practically all Android models. Why will it be?

The iPhone 12 is not the best exponent of 5G

According to a recent OpenSignal report, 5G speeds between iOS and Android are quite different. This report has made a complete comparison measuring the speeds of 5G with an iPhone 12 as well as different American Android models and the results are surprising.

We start from the basis that the 5G speed in an iPhone 12 is 2.3 times faster than using 4G but despite all this, the results are far behind what Android offers. The Cupertino terminal is behind up to 25 Android devices.

The iPhone 12 has 5G speeds well below most Android terminals

As OpenSignal reports, the Samsung Galaxy S21 5G is the fastest device on the list. It's more, Samsung is the company with the largest number of "fast" 5G smartphones and it is that he takes 60% of said list. The TCL Revvl 5G and OnePlus 8T + occupy the second and third positions respectively. The LG Velvet is the terminal number 25, or what is the same, the device just above the iPhone 12. A mid-range with 5G faster than a high-end.

What is the reason that the iPhone 12 is behind all these terminals? According to analyst Ian Fogg, the problem can come from the radio frequency connector as well as the processor, although the causes are still not entirely clear.

The only clear thing is that if someone wants to navigate at the maximum speed possible with 5G, iPhone 12 is not going to be your best option.
