iPhone has faster internet connection speed than Samsung, Oppo in Vietnam
Ookla, the firm specializing in providing and assessing the quality of data services, has released its latest Q1 2022 report.
In addition to comments about the internet speed of Vietnam’s telecom carriers, Ookla gave analyses about mobile phone models with the fastest internet connection.
All five phone models with the highest average download speed cited by Ookla were Apple, including three models of the iPhone 13 series and two models of the iPhone 12 series.
According to Ookla, iPhone 13 Pro is the mobile phone model with the fastest internet access among mobile devices available in Vietnam with a download speed of 70.91 Mbps on average.
The following positions were iPhone 13 Pro Max (68.07 Mbps), iPhone 13 (67.44 Mbps), iPhone 12 Pro 5G (62.39 Mbps), and iPhone 12 Pro Max 5G (61.97 Mbps).
Apple’s mobile phone models have an average download speed of 39.43 Mbps. Xiaomi has the second fastest average download speed with 36.51 Mbps. Samsung with 36.36 Mbps and Oppo with 30.06 Mbps rank third and fourth.
The latest report from IDC showed that in Q4 2021, Samsung was the leading phone manufacturer in the Vietnamese market, holding 28.7 percent of market share. The strong development of low-cost smartphones has made a great contribution to Samsung sales.
Oppo was in the second position with 17.3 percent of market share, while Vivo is third with 16.1 percent. The lower positions belong to Apple and Xiaomi with 10.6 percent of market share.
In the last months of 2021, the Vietnamese users bought more phones after a period of abstaining from buying new products because of the pandemic. This helped retail chains and manufacturers boost sales after a long lockdown period.
At present, 4G smartphones are the major driving force of the market after the regulation on restricting imports of mobile devices with only 2G and 3G support took effect on July 1, 2021.
IDC believes that the Vietnamese market will see the highest growth rate among ASEAN countries in 2022. This is attributed to the rapid increase in demand for smartphones, and the shift from 2G/3G models to 4G/5G models.
Vietnam is different from other ASEAN markets because the domestic market is influenced by large retail chains.
In addition to customer-care services, large retail mobile phone chains in Vietnam hold advantages thanks to cooperation with manufacturers to launch exclusive sale promotions. This helps them compete with small distributors.
