In total, the study found that Samsung had faster download speeds in 35% of the 40 countries analyzed. beating out Apple, which achieved faster speeds in just 17.5% of the countries. However, OpenSignal does point out that slower download speeds in Apple devices could be because of the weak smartphone market in that specific county.

OpenSignal also divided smartphone users into the top, mid, and low tier based on network capabilities, and Samsung phones have recorded the highest download speeds in the top-tier.
