Does the UK version have the intel or Qualcomm modem?
Google: compatible LTE iPhone X: click Apple link: look at the model: 1901 gsm only. 1865 cdma/gsm
I’m in the UK so assume I’ve got the A1901 Intel modem which is a shame as the reception is better with the Qualcomm modem.
Qualcomm may have slightly better download speeds side by side but when I had the 7+. Both versions 6 months each and the Intel had slightly better reception on att. Now the intel x has better reception then both. Haven’t tried the Qualcomm and I can’t because I’m on att and am not shelling out 1500 for a phone and apple care all at once.
I don’t have any, I just remember reading this was the case. Maybe I read it wrong.
My iPhone 7 Plus suffered with patchy reception and I was hoping the X would be better. I’ll know tomorrow.
Besides mine and others experiences, there are also the articles written about about how they throttle Qualcomm to match Intel. That's what bothers me the most about this. They've got to modify and essentially weaken one component to be on par with the other manufacturer.
I know Apple uses different manufacturers for things but data and calls are very important. I don't know if the 8/8+/X is better with Intel than my 7 Plus was. I only know that the Qualcomm is capable of gigabit LTE but you can't have it because Intel doesn't have it.
No one has to be upset at this or even notice it. It's just my qualm.
That’s not better reception though, that’s different download speeds. There isn’t any evidence that phones with an intel modem get better cell reception than those with Qualcomm, is there?
Qualcomm claims in a law suit that Apple deliberately throttles their interface. Make of that what you want, but one has to assume they know what they are talking about. They also claim that Apple does this to make it equivalent to the Intel one and avoid customer complaints.
