With 5G set to be the ‘next huge factor’ in the world of smartphones, manufacturers are already vying to be seen as providing the quickest, best and sleekest models on the market.
An early blow within the battle has been set by the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G, because the Chinese brand’s phone has beaten challengers from Oppo, Samsung, and LG to supply the fastest speeds over a 5G network in London, UK.
The 7 Pro 5G managed almost 700Mbps download speeds when operating on EE – the first network to unveil 5G within the UK – and that is mighty fast compared to the average 4G speeds of nearly 30Mbps, and 6Mbps for 4G in the same region.
It’s value noting that as these networks get more congested with customers, these speeds may fluctuate, however, it’s still an impressive quantity from the OnePlus phone.
In keeping with OnePlus, Rootmetrics undertook the test which took the readings on four phones – the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, the LG V50, the Oppo Reno 5G, and the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G – in static locations within the UK capital.
The identical results should be seen worldwide, though we’re waiting to see similar tests in high-traffic 5G zones outdoors of the UK.
Samsung’s Galaxy S10 5G was the least speedy of those on test – hitting 548Mbps, where LG’s V50 saw peak downloads of 598Mbps and the Reno 5G landing at 592Mbps.
