The battle of the 5G smartphone dominance continues in the UK and there can be only one winner when it comes to the fastest. Sitting nicely on top is the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G with its top competitor, albeit not many, lagging behind.
5G in the UK is fairly new but is set to be the next generation of mobile internet that smartphones can have. With speeds as fast as some top Wi-Fi 5G will no doubt fully dominate the market once it’s available on majority smartphones being releases. Vodafone and EE are the only current mobile service provider to offer 5G but there is a massive infrastructure currently being built.
The 5G internet speed you receive is determine by the type of phone that you have and it generally doesn’t mean it’s the most expensive or bigger brands. There are currently four 5G only phones available in the UK.
LG V50 5G
Samsung Galaxy S10 5G
Oppo Reno 5G
OnePlus 7 Pro 5G
Looking at that list, a lot of people will no doubt expect the big brands like Samsun or LG to provide phones with great speed. But how wrong you would be. The OnePlus 7 Pro 5G is declared the fastest 5G phone in the UK today by RootMetrics, and here how it stacks up.
OnePlus 7 Pro 5G – Average download speed of 694.51Mbps
LG V50 5G – Average download speed of 598.44Mbps
Oppo Reno – Average download speed of 582.01Mbps
Samsung Galaxy S10 5G – Average speed of 548.45Mbps
From the results you can see that they are marginal and an average user would probably not even notice the speed when loading a webpage or doing another task.
You can test speeds yourself should you have one of these devices. But keep in mind that mobile download speed depends on location, weather, population density and many other factors.
If you’re looking for a fast 5G phone, it would appear that for now the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G is the one to go for. You do have a selection of the latest 5G phones in the UK that you can find at www.fonehouse.co.uk.
