Is slower iPhone not a cleverly designed Apple feature to reduce battery, as well as load on the networks ?

So pretty much the same? Can only imagine the amount of data that was used.

So let me get that straight ... 450 / 8 * 0.49 = R2.76 per second out of bundle (locally)?

The networks are gonna love you if you dare to roam overseas.

To test the 5G speeds on the two devices, MyBroadband selected a location with good Vodacom 5G coverage.
Try excellent coverage! Then you will see speeds!!! :ROFL:

Yeah, this article got me curious, so I downloaded a speedtest app...

...turned off WiFi...

...and then realised what the hell I was doing.
Last I heard Vodacom and MTN had zero-rated data used for the MyBB speedtest app.

At these types of speeds latency is far more important.

Apple seems to be lacking on that front.

@Jan, thanks for including the latency numbers as I and other forum members suggested.

How about throwing in a midrange 5G device. See if these house battery priced devices have any advantage on a networking level.
