Have you heard the news? iPhones have slower download speeds compared to Samsung. Why? How? Think Qualcomm modems. Natalia Nowak:
Qualcomm is losing a big account to a competitor and decided to piss on Apple’s leg as they left the company. So to speak. Then, Qualcomm added insult to injury and informed the world, through Samsung, that Qualcomm’s modems were twice as fast as Intel’s, therefore, Samsung’s Galaxy-whatever can download faster than an iPhone.
Faster? The real world is a different story.
All those connection speeds vary like crazy– and provide download speeds far less than the perfect world tests conducted by Samsung and Qualcomm and not conducted by anti-Apple digital technology rag writers. The variables include distance to a cell tower, nearby buildings, smartphone traffic to the same tower, which applications are being used at the time, and on and on ad nauseam.
In other words, it’s not a big deal for anybody but those who test such things. And member of the technorati elite politburo who love to be anti-Apple because advertising eyeballs.
