The reason for the large difference in connection speed of LTE hardware components. iPhone XS iPhone XS Max was faster because of the new Gigabit modems, which supports 4×4 MIMO and LAA.
The test results also largely depend on the quality of a specific network operator, geographic location and weather conditions. However X iPhone loses to the latest flagships, even considering these factors.
