Ever wondered if your smartphone wasn’t getting as much signal strength as other brands and models?

Wonder no more, as a study conducted by professor Gert Frølund Pedersen of Aalborg University in Denmark tested the signal strength of a bunch of different smartphones.

For the study, Pedersen tested the signal strength of 26 smartphones during phone calls while the phones were held against the left and right ears with both left and right hands. We combined both left and right results to see which smartphones performed the best in both scenarios.

Out of the 26 smartphones, we picked the latest and most premium 11 models tested. Check them out:
