Teach you a trick to see if the iPhone baseband is Qualcomm or Intel. Which is better?
Everything in the tech circle is not surprising. It’s basically a noisy, but Qualcomm and Apple have been torn for a long time because of the baseband patent issue, and they have become irreconcilable.In fact, starting from the iPhone 7, Apple was mixed with Qualcomm and Intel’s baseband because of dissatisfaction with Qualcomm’s high patent fees, in order to cut Qualcomm orders, and all three new iPhones in 2018 used Intel’s baseband.
Therefore, the situation of mixing baseband only exists in the iPhone 7 series, iPhone 8 series and iPhone X. Many netizens think that Qualcomm’s baseband is better than Intel, so they are very concerned about which baseband is used in their mobile phones. Today, the professor teaches everyone. Two methods.
Enter a set of codes on the dialer interface
This method is very simple. Open the iPhone’s dial pad and type *3001#12345#* and click Dial. Automatically jump to a new page, the top is “High-pass baseband” if “Field Test” is displayed, and the Intel baseband is displayed if it is “Main Menu”.
Tested by APP
The second method is to download and install the iPhone baseband app.Commonly used are CPU-X and AIDA64.
The professor uses CPU-X to give you a demonstration. After entering the CPU-X, click [Network Information] to see the column of the cellular baseband. From the name, you can see Qualcomm, that is, the Qualcomm baseband, and Intel is the Intel baseband.
But is Qualcomm’s baseband really better than Intel?
It may be seen here that many machine friends still don’t understand that the baseband is a god horse. In fact, the baseband refers to the frequency band inherent in the unmodulated original electrical signal from the Baseband source (also called the transmitting end), called the basic frequency band. , referred to as the baseband.
Simply put, the performance of the baseband is reflected in the ability of the mobile phone to obtain network communication, that is, the signal we often say is good, the download speed is not fast, including mobile signal and WIFI signal.
Some testing organizations have already done relevant tests, but the results are different with different models or different comparison methods. For example, Cellular Insights has experimentally compared the iPhone X with Qualcomm baseband and Intel baseband. The result is a version of Qualcomm baseband, the signal is more stable, and the download speed is faster.
After the iPhone XS was released, the test organization PCMag also tested and found that the iPhone XS’s Intel baseband performance is better than the iPhone X’s Qualcomm baseband, and the experiment also found that the signal seems to be related to the system, also the Intel baseband iPhone X. When the signal strength is weak, the iPhone X running iOS 12 will have a signal dip.Therefore, the iPhone with Qualcomm baseband is not necessarily better than the Intel version, but relatively speaking, it is generally believed that the Qualcomm baseband version of the iPhone signal performs better in older models. There are also netizens who think that the iPhone signal is always weaker than the Android phone.
What kind of baseband is your iPhone? What is the signal performance? Welcome to leave a message~
