Samsung Galaxy S24 Vs iPhone 15: Early 5G Performance Comparison

Ookla, a provider of connectivity services and tools, released a report comparing 5G performance of the new line of Samsung Galaxy S24 devices versus the iPhone lineup as well as against older Galaxy models. 

Using results from the Speedtest tool by users across multiple countries, the report offered several takeaways: 

The Galaxy S24 devices led in median 5G download speeds of 306.90 Mbps and had the lowest 5G median 5G multi-server latency at 45.71 ms in 10 out of 15 countries. 

Apple's iPhone15 family had the fastest 5G speeds in one country, but the report noted that speed differences between the Samsung and Apple devices were "relatively minor" in some of the countries where tested. 

Galaxy S24 device speeds were about 75 Mbps faster than on the S22 models and approximately 65 Mbps faster than those on S23 devices. 

The U.S. had impressive 5G speed, with median download speeds of at least 232.46 Mbps across all device families. 

The report also noted the chipsets used in the new Galaxy S24 and the iPhone 15. At the heart of the flagship Galaxy S24 is Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. The lower-tier models, the S24 and S24+, ship with the Snapdragon chipset only in Canada, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and the U.S.  Elsewhere, the S24 and S24+ ship with the Samsung Exynos 2400.

The iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max ship with Apple's A 17 Pro chip. The iPhone 15 and 15+ have Apple's A16 Bionic chipset. All iPhone 15s feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon X70 5G modem. The Galaxy S24 line utilizes the Snapdragon X75 5G modem.

Tests were conducted in countries in all regions of the globe. In the Asia-Pacific region, testing was performed in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Philippines, South Korea and Thailand. 

Within the Middle East and Africa, testing came out of Nigeria, Qatar and the Unites Arab Emirates. 

In Europe, testing was done in France, Spain and the U.K. And in North America, users in Mexico and the U.S. performed the testing. 

Ookla provided recommendations based on test results on whether users in those countries should upgrade their devices. For instance, based on test results the recommendation for those using older Samsung devices in the U.S. should be to upgrade to leverage the faster 5G speed.
