    5G has been prevalent in smartphones in the US and other key markets over the past couple of years. But which brand sells the best smartphones in terms of 5G connectivity and performance? Ookla, the company behind the famous SpeedTest app, has released a list showing which brands and smartphones delivered the best 5G quality in the US in Q4 2022.

    It's no surprise to see the latest high-end smartphones conquering the list.

    Galaxy Z Fold 4 was the fastest phone in the US in terms of average 5G download speeds

    Ookla's latest 5G report for the US reveals that the Galaxy Z Fold 4 offered the best average download speeds. On average, it provided download speeds of 147.25Mbps on 5G networks in the US. Its average upload 5G speed was 13.95Mbps, and latency was 55ms. The Pixel 7 Pro ranked second with average 5G download speeds of 137.11Mbps, upload speeds of 15.53Mbps, and 50ms latency.
