The OnePlus 7 Pro is one of the most affordable flagship smartphones in the market, and it is also one of the fastest. Not only is it powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, but it also gets UFS 3.0 storage. And now, according to RootMetrics, the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G variant is the fastest 5G smartphone it has tested for download speeds. RootMetrics tested the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G alongside other 5G devices to evaluate each smartphones network performance. For the test, RootMetrics used a OnePlus 7 Pro 5G, Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, LG V50 5G, and Oppo Reno 5G.OnePlus 7 Pro 5G Offers Fastest Download Speeds Compared to 5G Rivals: RootMetrics
RootMetrics carried out the test on these four smartphones using the EE network in early June in London. These smartphones were testing in areas like the City of London, Kensington, Chelsea, Westminster, and South Bank among others.
That’s quite the disparity, so we spoke to all the brands to see if they could explain the findings a little more. We’ve currently only heard from OnePlus (unsurprisingly), who told TechRadar that increasing 5G speeds had been one of the goals for it’s new high-end phone:
“With the OnePlus 7 Pro 5G we redesigned the 5G antenna, adopted a totally different internal design using a stacked PCB to allow for the additional 5G hardware, and added an expanded cooling system,” a spokesperson told us.
According to RootMetrics, the OnePlus 7 Proachieved a download speed of nearly 700Mbps giving it a clear lead over the other smartphones. In comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G could only manage 550Mbps while LG V50 5G and the Oppo Reno 5G managed around 600Mbps.
