The Samsung Galaxy A32, iPhone 11, and Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra are the most widely used smartphones when utilising MyBroadband's Speed Test applications.

To provide South Africans with a simple method to test their internet speed and assess their mobile operator and ISP, MyBroadband released its Android and iOS speed test applications in 2017.

The speed test applications from MyBroadband are ad-free, free to use and provide reliable download, upload, and latency measurements.

Over 100,000 South Africans have downloaded the Android and iOS Speed Test applications, which have received a 4.7/5 rating from 3,110 reviews.

Between January 2022 and September 2022, speed tests were conducted on smartphones by MyBroadband.

The Samsung Galaxy A32, a midrange smartphone introduced in February 2021 without a 5G connection, is the most widely used gadget.
The phone costs R4,300 and is offered by well-known South African shops including Game and Incredible Connection. It has an improved 64 MP primary camera.

The iPhone 11 from Apple, the thirteenth iteration of the device, came in second. It was introduced in September 2019. It replaced the iPhone XR and had several significant updates, such as the inclusion of the more potent Apple A13 Bionic CPU and an ultra-wide dual-camera system.

Third place went to the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G. On January 14, 2021, Samsung held a Galaxy Unpacked event where the phone was introduced. Although it isn't Samsung's newest flagship model, it is nevertheless accessible from merchants for around R20,000.

The top 20 featured a significant ratio of iPhones, which was an intriguing finding given that South Africa is an Android country. The top 10 include the iPhone 11, iPhone 12, iPhone 13, iPhone XR, and iPhone 13 Pro Max.

Another interesting fact is the large number of Huawei P30 Lite units sold in Europe, which is almost the same as the number of units sold in South Africa. The combined popularity of the two variants of these gadgets would be on par with that of the Samsung Galaxy A32.

Only three brands, Apple, Samsung, and Huawei, were in the Top 20. This is an additional intriguing finding. It reflects the dominance of these three brands and is consistent with South African high-end smartphone sales.
