Fastest 5G phones revealed — and Galaxy S21 blows away the iPhone 12

5G networks promise faster speeds than the LTE bands most of us are on. But often, those gains aren’t always as big as were initially promised. Luckily, if you’ve got a 5G-capable phone from Samsung, chances are you’re reaping the benefits of all that added speed.

A new study by network testing firm OpenSignal looks at 5G performance by individual models of phone. It paints a very promising picture for Samsung handsets, with the Korean phone maker claiming 60% of the 5G devices offering the 25 fastest download speeds.

The newly released Galaxy S21 heads the list with an average download speed of 56 Mbps, topping the Revvl 5G, a TCL-built phone for T-Mobile’s 5G network, and the OnePlus 8T. Two other Samsung S21 models — the Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Ultra also cracked the top 10.

The dominance by the S21 family when it comes to 5G performance is certainly good news for Samsung, but it could also mean big things for the other Android phones coming out this year.
